Aio cooling diy desk pc


Recommended Posts

So I recently built a DIY desk pc 

And im using the Corsair icue h150i elite capellix 360 mm cooler

I have a problem with the aio tubes touching the GPU top (at the metal part of the backplate) I game on it and my liquid temps gets to 40c maximum (tomb raider, apex legends) I just wanted to know if the GPU touching the tubes like that can actually melt then and leak (destroying my GPU) the GPU I have is the Palit Gamerock 3080 ti OCspacer.png

Just adding that my GPU temps gets to a maximum of 70c and the CPU as well 

Radiator is also set as exhaust 

and the left side of the desk (about 1 meter left) has an opening and I feel air flow coming out of it (no exhaust fans) 

the entire top is covered with glass so it’s a closed box

Not likely to be a problem and this happens to other people with a standard vertical configuration as well.  The real source of trouble would be a hot GPU backplate slowly weakening the rubber hoses.  However, the rubber has a heat tolerance well in excess of anything you can generate and the very outer edge of the backplate is probably the coolest part of the local area.  The worst I can see is over time it might leave a slight mark on the outer sleeve of the tubing, but that is decorative and not much else.  If you like, you could slip a thin piece of rubber (or something) between the GPU edge and the hoses.  That would further insulate the hose sleeve from direct heat transmission from the GPU.
