Description

A simple water cooled build. 3 mid-range SSDs in raid 0. The machine runs at stock everything, I'm not an overclocker on the 9590. I water cool because I like a nearly silent computer. I recently removed a double-thick 120mm radiator and added the 3x120 because cooling the 9590 is like trying to refrigerate thermite. I have an R9 390 but it's a Gigabyte card and cannot have a full block installed without me machining one, hence why I purchased a 970. It's not an "XTREME RGB HADOUKEN" because that's just not my style. In a few weeks there will be a Ryzen 1700x in here with one of the x370 boards. I'll have to design and print a waterblock mount for it because Swiftech hasn't announced any plans to provide one. Just for fun a printed model of Reaper. You may wonder why I have a compression fitting on the res. Funny story. I ordered a set of 10 compression fittings from them and none had the compression screwy thing and I was unable to get them or the retailer to send me replacements. You also may ask why I'm not using any clamps. I don't like the look of clamps. Thanks. I hope you enjoy the build.
