It was a good time to update my personal computer build since the previous setup was about seven years old. I also did my very first custom loop watercooling setup. It was fun, exciting and a bit nervous project. Bending tubes was a bit tricky at first, but everything went well. No leaks or broken parts.

I builded the setup earlier this year first using Noctua NH-U14S CPU-cooler. Last weekend, I completed the setup by installing the custom loop. The computer is now much quieter and a quite bit cooler compared to air cooled version. I’m not going overclock my pc to any time soon, since I want to keep my setup as stable as possible. Maybe later I can start to overclock CPU and GPU to keep them a bit more relevant, when they get older and faster components comes to the market.
