9900k desk pc

by Merlin P Posted on: 10/22/2020

Build Description

This is a 9900k with a custom water cooling loop made with mainly EK parts. My first time water cooling. The inspiration for this build was a video on LTT youtube channel where Linus built his first desk pc. I decided to do something a little different with the placement of all the parts within the desk. The motherboard try is at a slight angle to show off the motherboard and the GPU mount is in front of it to show off the 3080 that will end up in it. I plan to add purple cable extensions to hide the ketchup and mustered generic cables.

Favorite Feature

i am quite excited to play 1440p games on ultra settings because this pc is rtx 3080 ready... or soon to be
