Project Aorus was initially thought to be a simple show build with some water cooling and custom cables, but as Hans Peder “p0pe” Sahl explains, it often happens that he gets carried away and decides to make his own custom water cooling parts for the build. This project was first exposed live in Leipzig at Dreamhack 2017, Gigabyte – Aorus event.

Hardware specifications:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-7700K 
Motherboard:
 GIGABYTE® Aorus Z270X-Gaming 9

2x GIGABYTE® GTX 1080 G1 Gaming
RAM:
Corsair 32GB Vengeance® 3000MHz
PC Case: HEX GEAR R80
Power Supply:

Special: Custom made manifold plates

We invite you to take a closer look!

The centerpiece of this build is its two custom manifold plates. Plate one that sits on the motherboard connects all the major components such as the GPU, CPU, motherboard and RAM into one big distributing plate. The second plate houses the reservoir as well as two D5 pumps and routes the fluid into the radiators in top and bottom as well. The manifold plates are made from a combination of 25 mm acrylic, and 10 mm acrylic and was milled on a CNC machine.

    Those custom blocks and res are just so sexy! It all looks like a 2D cartoon drawing with the thick black gaskets. Just beautiful and clean. Best build so far.
