Building The Acid Green Liquid Gaming PC

by | Mar 7, 2023 | Custom Gaming Computer Builds

Building a custom gaming PC is an exciting challenge, but one that requires careful planning of the components that make up a powerful machine. One important component is the cooling system, which is essential for maintaining stable and reliable performance. While traditional air cooling has been the go-to method for years, more and more gamers are turning to liquid cooling for its many benefits. In today’s build, we be building a green liquid gaming PC.

Intel has powerful processors that are capable handling heavy processing games and perfect for overclocking. The i9-12900k has 16 Cores and can be clocked up to an average of 5.2GHz. With reliable cooling, this machine will experience no lag when playing on 4k settings. To compliment the CPU in this build, the builder chose to add the MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 LHR 10GB GDRR6X. An exceptionally powerful graphics card needed to guarantee the best performance. If we are going to add liquid cooling, it is easier to start with a CPU and GPU that won’t be swapped for a long time.

The Outcome Of This Build

This was a successful build given that the liquid in combination with the RGB fans and waterblocks looks even better than it did on paper. The clear green liquid is able to display all of the components behind tubing while providing efficient cooling throughout the system.

Conclusion

Building the Acid Green Water Cooled PC came out better than it was first planned. The components used are going to make this gaming PC last for a very long time. Although there aren’t many screens at this time that can play at 8k reslution, we believe that this PC is future proof enough that it will be able to handle it with ease.

While budget and maintenance requirements can scare people away from water cooling, the advantages make it a worthwhile investment for many gamers and enthusiasts.

By weighing the pros and cons of air cooling vs. liquid cooling, understanding how water cooling works, and taking proper precautions to prevent leaks, builders can create top-notch performance and stunning visually appealing computers.

So, if you’re considering a custom PC build, we encourage you to explore the world of water cooling and see how it can take your system to the next level. With the right tools and knowledge, the possibilities are endless.
