help with configuration for lian-li dynamic

 Share

I am trying to prepare for a future build by buying some components in the January sales. I am fairly sold on the Lian li dynamic. I am wanting to go custom loop because I am wanting to do a showy build but it is my first time doing it. I want to play with overclocking but I'm not planning on going too crazy just out of concern for the energy bills. On the loop, I am going to want to stick a GPU and a CPU in the loop. In case it matters, I will have a capture card installed. SLI sounds like an expensive hassle and I have not won the lottery. I am considering the verticle mount for the GPU and mounting my pump reservoir combo on the bottom and whatever the biggest 360 radiator configuration I can fit on the top is. The question is should I stick a rad on the side or is this overkill and I should just use the side for intake fans? Or do I have this all wrong? At this point, I am mostly concerned with not accidentally buying too many water cooling parts and fans.

Buying another rad would for sure be overkill as you probably wont see much improvement in the temps since you are only running a cpu and one Gpu really the second rad would be more of an aesthetic choice at that point unless you plan to throw a second Gpu in at some point or your pc is just a oven. But if you did use 2 rads it wouldn't be hurting anything

Do i Recommend Ryzen? Yes. All of the Yes.

The Vertical GPU mount takes up the PCI-E slots, so assuming your capture card is PCI-E, you cannot use the vertical GPU mount in addition to anything plugged into additional slots (sound card, wifi cards or capture devices to name a few)

 

*edit* you MIGHT be able to use the top slot, but thats about it. It probably wouldnt look very clean since you would definitely have to wrap the tube around it depending on the height of the card.

This is also assuming you use the First party PCI-E vertical GPU mount provided by lian li (which I've heard complaints about). This also means you cant mount fans to the bottom. 3rd party solutions like Coolermaster or @CableMod will allow you to mount fans to the bottom, but definitely block access to ANY of the other PCI-E slots

This is making me lean towards just getting the 2nd rad and adding it to my loop if and when I need it. Not really seeing many offers for medium thickness rads.

I am using the Elgato HD60 Pro which does not occupy the full length of the slot.

I was considering either getting a second riser cable and hiding it behind the GPU as the Lian-Li solution gives you 4 slots or seeing if I can put it in the top slot. Both solutions lock me into Lian-Li's mounting solutions though. I really do not want to have to build a streaming rig on top of this. I could salvage my old rig to make it cheap but I was hoping to just sell it. If the Lian-Li mount is super bad I could be persuaded to not bother and fill the bottom with fans.

I would add another rad. 

 

A 360 isn’t enough. As you’re cpu and gpu are gonna be at taxed quite a bit. Assuming you are gonna record/stream with this. 

 

Also wonder why you considered sli at all as you must be playing at 1080p.

Also the hd60 has the low pro pci bracket. So you could put it behind  He card. Depending on your pci layout and which slots you prefer to use.

Can a boy not dream? :P I am debating getting a new GPU to get into 1440p but the main motivation to get a new computer is because my i7-4770k just is not cutting it for streaming and I'm not getting the framerates I'm expecting in more processor intensive games like far cry 5. I am saving my pennies, sticking to streaming console games and probably going to wait for Ryzen 3000. This is mostly an exercise in figuring out how many fans I am going to need while I can get them on a bit of a discount.

Well don’t get a hd60 for 1440. As that’s a 1080 card. Unless you’ll just upgrade when the time comes. Also do the monitor and gpu support hdmi 2.0?

My current monitor is a BenQ XL2420Z from 2014 so probably not. My current GPU is a 1070 so probably. I already own the hd60 but im willing to upgrade both.

I dont think it's SUPER bad quality, but a few people have complained about their experience using it so YMMV.
