Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

ONE of My other expensive hobbies !! Check out my new gaming pc i built

So ive been out of the lava lamp thing for a month or two now as i moved onto my PC..  Finally updated my entire computer..   My case i had was 14 years old, my keyboard a mechanical keyboard from 1996 (old keyboards are the best trust me", got a new mouse, my monitor was 14 years old right when CRT's switched to LCD's this was my 2nd lcd ive ever had lol.   Also since my PC is a gaming pc i watercool the cpu and ive been re-using my watercooling for 17 years since like 2001.  Its an old waterblock i just modded by making brackets to fit on current cpu sockets.  My chair was falling apart and 8 years old as well

 

Decided it was time to upgrade everything.  My PC hardware was only about 3-4 years old but in gaming terms outdated.

I spent $4700 on everything, the video card is a 1080ti Asus strix which was $820 in its own, cpu is a 2700x AMD Ryzen+ Or Zen 2 not sure what AMD wants to call it because it keep changing names.  X470 Gigabyte Gaming 7 motherboard, 16gb of G.skill Flare X CL14 some of the best memory you can buy.  Ree-used my Power supply since its not outdated.  Also got a new Creative Soundblaster AE 5 sound card

Watercooling is a custom loop with 2 360mm radiators, one on top with 3 120mm fans one in front of the case with 6 120mm fans on it.  2 120mm on the bottom and 1 140mm in the rear.   I Used soft tubing i dont like the hard tubing craze out today "people use hard tubing to make it seem less cluttered but with soft i can remove stuff without draining anything"  I also have 2 450ml reservoirs with Helix coils in them like the residentevil Tvirus blue and green helix tubes in the movies.  My Video card has a thermaltake waterblock on it..  EK Evo Supremacy block for the cpu 

The case is a Thermaltake View 71 all glass door front top, sides case. Monitor is a 27 inch Curved 2560x1440 144hz monitor.  New Gladius 2 Mouse, and a Thermaltake Poseidon Keyboard.  Also bought a Gaming chair too.

I had an AIO it was thermaltakes AIO, same block and pump as corsairs made by Asetek.. but i returned it and decided to go full on custom..

 Custom costs alot too,, like an AIO 360mm can cost $170 or so..  Custom watercooling for just the cpu with a 360mm radiator is almost double

Nice gaming rigg! Iv been into PCs for awhile too but recently not as much as before. Iv built 2 pcs, my 2nd build is the one I still have today. I found a vintage voodoo omen pc case on an Internet forum and was able to buy it from a private seller for a grip of money. Anyway I always wanted to get into custom water cooling like you with cpu, mobo water blocks, and gpu blocks and the cool t-virus reservoirs, but settled on a Corsair cpu water cooler for little maintence.

Yeah the reasoning behind the price for all the gear was a deterring attribute.. I wanted full EK waterblocks on all my stuff and ek chrome pump top and fittings... would have cost way too much, and the risk for leaks, and routine maintenance..and the expensive radiators and push pull fan setups ...maybe I’ll give it a go some other time..

NIce, Especially like the 2 Helix  reservoirs  and front panel coolers
Never seen either one, always just the top ones

I have an 8 cores=AMD too, but not as quick (3hz)

I need to upgrade the power supply to 1000 Watt though
