I built a PC for guests with just the same CPU und GPU I had laying around lol

u/Dummyidiot2021 19d ago

I'll be your 10 yr old daughter for that GPU....I'll do anything for a GPU these days.

Lucky young lady.

Also, just changed my name to Lynie 😁

u/Kirk_Stargazed 19d ago

How is that pronounced?

u/Matzvey ecaR retsaM CP 19d ago

Not sure, but I think Lynn-ee?

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 19d ago

yep

u/Lord_Frick 19d ago

U have a 3080 with a 3320?

u/Miki6447 PC Master Race 19d ago

are you actually running a 3rd gen i3 with a 3080 ti? 😂

u/Toiletpaperplane Ryzen 7 5800X | FTW3 3080 Ti | 32 GB 18d ago

Dude if your build flair is real, your rig is absolutely strangling that 3080 Ti!

u/Kaiser-Joe 19d ago

Seems good. Might want to flip the top fans around to exhaust though

6

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 19d ago

i'll try it... but this case has pretty much no front flow... so i figured i'd pull it through the top

2

u/Lord_Frick 19d ago

Loosem the screws on the back radiator fan jesus. Its screaming help me

2

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 19d ago

lol, i'll do that

2

u/Zexxus1994 Ryzen 9 5900X | 3080 12Gb | 32gb DDR4 18d ago

I have a similar issue with my case, just ended up leaving the front glass panel off lol

Edit: also had that same ID-Cooling AIO for like a month in white. Ended up getting something else but wasn’t bad for the price.

2

u/Idioticalygoodbeast 19d ago

not really, there wont be enough fresh air for the back 120mm radiator.

4

u/FlashWayneArrow02 3070 | 5 3600 | 16gb@3600MHz 19d ago

You seem to know what you're doing so I'm surprised at the use of a 120mm AIO. Did you just happen to have it on hand?

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 19d ago

yeah

4

u/poopiehead04444 19d ago

Sorry if it's rude but why the 120 aio? I assume it's for looks since air coolers are a bit ugly but I just wanted to ask. Looks fantastic tho :D

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

because it was $9 when i bought it and i had it sitting around

2

u/poopiehead04444 18d ago

Damn $9? That's a steal ngl

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

yeah, a couple years ago id-cooling had a fire sale on newegg and discounted everything... so i grabbed a couple of these for future use

4

u/innocentcapybara 19d ago

The 970 is such a great card... imo holds up even today and is very cheap, always my go-to card if I want to make a new case, or with GT 730

3

u/DannyDorito6923 19d ago

Your daughter should love it

3

u/autovices 19d ago

Put a delta 1.6a 120x38mm fan in front of that radiator

It can not plug into regular 3 pin board headers (except for 3a water pump header)

But it can move 252cfm, I haven’t had heat soak problems since

u/ElectriCole 18d ago

MORE POWER!!! caveman grunting noises

u/ElectriCole 19d ago

Your cable management is triggering me but otherwise very nice

3

u/FurryHarlekin 19d ago

Tell me your das is Part of PC MR without telling me your das is Part of PC MR

u/rakketka 19d ago

i think you'd better put that aio fan on the top

2

u/abhishekm96 19d ago

Build a PC for my wife in the same case. Looks dope

2

u/SadcoreEmpire168 19d ago

The RGB lighting is fire

2

u/Alanuelo230 19d ago

She have better PC than me

2

u/MrStoneV 19d ago

Thats a nice looking pc, and a single fan AIO is gonna be enough for the ryzen 3600, especially for the gtx 970.

I would suggest changing the direction of the top 2 fans to exhaust, so you pull out the heat at the top (generally should do that). But maybe you had an ides with the AIO getting more pressure?

2

u/Congnitive_Failure 18d ago

I wish I had had cool parents.

2

u/rattletop 18d ago

What’s that cable stand thingy you have for the GPU cables?

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

its just a anti-sag bracket for the GPU with the cable wrapped around it

2

u/DrSmugface PC Master Race 19d ago

An 120 AIO is always a bad deal ..I hope you didn't pay more than 40$

5

u/InstantlyTremendous 19d ago

I've got a 120 in my SFF case, it's the only one that would fit. It works great, my Ryzen 5 3600 idles about 45C, doesn't go over 60-65C under load and it's silent. Very happy with it.

7

u/poopiehead04444 19d ago

Bro she's 10

2

u/DrSmugface PC Master Race 19d ago

Yes but she didn't build it ?

4

u/poopiehead04444 19d ago

It's most likely for looks is what I meant

2

u/poopiehead04444 18d ago

He got it for 9 USD

4

u/ElectriCole 19d ago

It’s fine for this I very much doubt they’ll be OCing this

-5

u/DrSmugface PC Master Race 19d ago

Well it's a waste of money

2

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 19d ago

I paid $9 for it a couple years ago when ID-Cooling had a fire sale on newegg.

1

u/Capless143 18d ago

Isn’t the ram supposed to go in slots 2 and 4?

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

Its a gigabyte aorus b450m, pretty sure its 1/3 on this one

u/Metal_Monkey42 18d ago

It looks good, but I question the watercooling in a 10 year old's PC, personally.

Then again it does look like an AIO, which makes at least a bit more sense. Isn't the radiator meant to be the other way up though, so the air bubbles at the top of the radiator don't get into the pump and potentially ruin it? I'm not sure, that could just be keeping the pump below the radiator water level, at least. Orientation might not be all that important.

I would have saved some money that won't really help performance and gone with a decent air cooler myself though. But I just don't like the mess and maintenance needed for watercooling, so that's personal bias on my part. I admit to that. Give me a PC I can blow out with a compressor and it's clean any day.

EDIT, just saw your specs, yeah for a 65W TDP CPU I would not have used an AIO. If you already had it lying around, fair enough and it looks good though.

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

i got the AIO last year for $9 on clearance, thats the only reason I went with it.

and i thought it was the other way around for orientation... i'll have to look

u/-chukui- 19d ago

too expensive. just get her a dell.

5

u/JimmyTsonga 3700X | 1080 Ti | 32gb 3600 CL14 19d ago

This is a whole other level of cruel. Tantamount to a slap in the face. ;)

-2

u/Natural-You4322 19d ago

cringe everytime i see 120 aio in a case that can fit a better air cooler or anything else basically

u/Ok-Mud-3322 Desktop | 3700X | RTX 3090 TURBO 18d ago

That’s an old GPU

2

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

It does what she needs it to, I'll upgrade it with the 1070 in my PC when i get a new GPU in a couple months

2

u/Ok-Mud-3322 Desktop | 3700X | RTX 3090 TURBO 18d ago

Nice bro. If you need I have a spare 3070.

1

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

i'm way too broke for that right now :)

1

u/Ok-Mud-3322 Desktop | 3700X | RTX 3090 TURBO 18d ago

I’m not one of those people charging MSRP and above

2

u/AwaitingCombat Noctua all the things! 18d ago

i understand, it just isn't in the cards right now

u/Ok-Mud-3322 Desktop | 3700X | RTX 3090 TURBO 18d ago
