Did I just spend a grand on my custom loop? Jesus!

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I bought pieces randomly here and there, now i've just counted it up....it's about thousand bucks! This included everything, pump/res, blocks, rads, fans, fittings, adapters..



I've only got 1 GPU and 1 rad...the culprit seems to be these bitspower dual rotaries 90s...just the drain assembly alone cost me $100 in fittings and adapters...



But, this is a hobby, and we often do stuff excessively...she's beautiful to look at, doesn't make a sound, and stays cold no matter what game i throw at her... smile.gif

Is that all..................... biggrin.gif

Just spent $3000 on fittings (BP), rads, 2 x Caselabs cases, res's, pumps, pump tops, Dr Drop, more aquacomputer parts............. wink.gif

I think I have a problem.redface.gif

Beautiful build mate. If my build comes out half as good as that, I will be happy. Very very nice.thumb.gif

Enjoy it. Yes our hobby is expensive, most hobbies are.tongue.gif

It adds up quickly, that is for sure. I just decided to change cases that required a res change, and I was saying "did I really just spend over $200 to change a res???????". Ugh....

Great looking build!

I just spent $500 on my puppy deworming lastnight. Say goodbye to my secret GTX 1080 fund...or any additional cooling for that matter...

Build looks great! One suggestion though. You should make a custom bracket to close off the PCIE shield so the only opening is for your card mounted 90*.

Oh man sorry to hear about the pup, you'll manage to find funds for the 1080 some way or another smile.gif...


Yeah I'm not done yet, still gotta fine tune and touch up the little things...pci cover fits back on I just have to put it on, it fits everywhere except where the stinking dvi port is...not sure why we still have dvi these days it's as obsolete as CDs
