Description

The PC is named after the plane Esper from MTG's Shards of Alara. For the uninitiated, it's a world primarily aligned with blue with white and black as secondary colors. It's been a long 7 month journey since I started collecting the parts for it; plans changed along the way, regrets were made, lessons were learned, and tears were shed. The intent was to make a luxurious, comfortable, powerful gaming pc with as little compromises as possible.

It all started at the beginning of June, my birth month. My student loans were paid off, the hospital bills were finished, and my car payments would be wrapped up in January. I took a look at my current PC at the time: an i5-3570 paired with a GTX 750ti that I had built in spring of 2014. I looked at my savings account, then back at the PC. Then back at my savings account. I did what any jealous nerd that lurks PCPartPicker would do. I needed to build a system that I could be proud of.

Wow! such a beautiful build, and I cant believe that you went to the extreme of delidding your cpu! Your custom water loop looks spectacular. Just good job and I wish I had the money to build something like that!

Just one question. When 8th gen Intels came out did you consider getting one? Why didn't you?

It was June when I got the 7700k and board. If the 8th gen chips could work in Z270 boards, I would have considered it.

Yo, do custom loops void the GPU warranty with Asus?

You have to break a warranty sticker to remove the screws. So yeah probably so.

Just don't be first one to do things. It's been done a million times by other people, so I feel safe that the collective knowledge of the watercooling community will see me through.

I'm getting my hands on an ASUS PG34VQ (3440x1440) as soon as they come out. I must endure this 1080p foolishness until at least Q1 of 2018.
