My First Watercooled Rig

by Max W Posted on: 7/6/2021

Build Description

This was my first attempt a water cooling, and I have to say I think it turned out pretty well so far. I’m still trying to get my hands on a 3080 to add to the loop, so I’m using a 1060 6GB I stole from my old Alienware.

Edit: I finally got an ASUS Tuf 3080 OC from MC, as well as a Bitspower water block.
