So after building my nephew a simple gaming rig with lots of RGB, I got the bug. So I decided I would upgrade my MSI Gaming Laptop that I used for VR with a custom PC. So I started watching the YouTubes and lurking in the forums, and thought to myself, why not go all out with a custom water loop? I answered myself, no reason not to! So months of planing and watching tutorials and reading reviews and ordering and waiting for parts to finally be available and then waiting for delivery... well it took some time is my point I guess.
So I called this "VR PC Dream", but it can also be called "Wallet Buster" or "Can't Check if it Works Till After I Fill it With Water?!" or "10 Pounds of Crap in a 5 Pound Bag" or "Cable Management? What Cable Management?" or "Why the Hell Won't A Do B?!" or "What's That Noise?" or "Man I Should Have Labeled Those" or "Who Needs a Reset Button Anyway?" or "Tube Bending? No Can do. Throw More Money at It" or "Well, Can't Reach That Anymore so It's Part of the Design" or "Some Velcro Will Keep That Shut" or "I Should Have Taken BIOS as My Second Language" or "Third Time Installing Windows Is A Charm". The list can go on and I hope it gives you an idea of some of the issues I encountered.
But you know what, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Man she looks pretty. And she runs like a dream. Hope you guys love her like I do.
Edit: Just added a couple of pics of the overclock I was able to achieve.
