Hi- new here, quick hello.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently have found myself doing well enough early on in life to be able to enjoy (throw money away at) my hobbies and interests. I've recently build a pc and have given a short description in my signature section. I'll later list a full spec for point of reference in the future.

In any event I'm from Tx, I'm fortunate that I'm able to interact with computers in my career in a way I enjoy. However I know very little about pushing hardware to its limits and wanted to join a seasoned community to learn with and ask help from.

Nothing too fancy but I started with a Asrock 970M pro3 (am3+) mobo, msi r7 370 4g, fx-8320, ekwb x240 liquid cooling kit, crucial ballistics xt ddr3 @1866 cl10 (16g 4 x 4),corsair sp 140mm fans X2, Thermaltake 550w psu, and a thermaltame core v21 matx/mitx case.

So far I've messed around and oc'ed stable to 4.2 but I'd like more simply put. I'm here to achieve that. Below I'll post some pics of my set up. I installed the lc today as a first I think some of the hoses might be a bit long but I wanted to be safe. Any input welcome, hello and thanks for reading.

Hello and welcome from a fellow Texan.
Can't really see what going on inside your rig from those photos, but the orange looks good.
Is it just the CPU that water cooled?

Thanks and Howdy,

Yes, the CPU is the only component that has a water block for cooling. I might pick up more connections in the future once I feel comfortable I know what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. As for now, I think I have a pretty decent start up to get rolling.

Any tips suggestions or simply a direction to look into would be most appreciated.
