Build Description

Custom water cooled build with a 5950x OC'd to 5.1ghz, EVGA FTW3 ultra 3090 and Corsair Vengeance RGB 32gb ram @4000mhz. Funny story about my CPU. Micro Center in Rockville Md. was showing one in stock. So I drove 2hrs and once I got there they told me it was a error on the website. I was so bummed out.. I started driving home and decided to check at another Micro Center in Parkville Md. I jokingly ask a sales person if they had a 5950's expecting him to say no. He then said that he think's they just received a handful just a few minutes ago. I almost fell over with excitement.

OK, this is my second pc build and my first custom water pc. I built this rig for gaming mainly, But also have been flirting with xoc. Best port royal score is 14028. Wanna break that 15,000. Time Spy Extreme 10543. I consider my self a hard core gamer, have about 4000 hours in destiny. I play a lot of story driven games Witcher3, Cyberpunk, Ghost of Tsushima, Nier Automata and Half Life Alex. I built this PC just to be able to play Cyberpunk in 4k. Lol Kind of let down by the game. One thing I wish I would have done different was use all EK parts. Rads and CPU cooler. But I'm proud of the job I did on this pc. I had a lot of fun planning out the build and mapping out the piping. And I hope you enjoy the pictures. Cheers.

Favorite Feature

I love the EK distro block and GPU water block. Doing all the bends in the tubing had to be my favorite part of the build. I'm a custom water loop fan now.
