New Build


Upgraded from a old 2500k build that I first built 4 years ago. Thought I'd try something new with watercooling. Still deciding on a Fury-X or a 980Ti or just get another 290X hence the long tube going across the GPU. I was nervous starting the project but with /r/pcmasterrace and lots of reasearching I got it up and running. Runs super quiet under full load besides the GPU ramping up. I am super satisfied so far with this build!
