Holy electricity bill

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 4 points 3 months ago

Not so much more than running a console and a big screen tv.

Did you use the silicone insert for bending the tubes? Nice lights and stuff btw

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 4 points 3 months ago

You know I did, but I used alphacool tubing for the first time and it was very difficult to work with for some reason. Definitely going to be redoing bends. Thanks for the comment!

zknicho1 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Is it acrylic or petg? Bends are hard man you were bold and went for it and I applaud that.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

It's PETG, which I never had a problem with before. I haven't heard bad things about alphacool tubing before. But it's going to be a pass for me next time.

zknicho1 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Thats weird, maybe a bad batch as I havent heard anything bad either. Thermaltake PETG tubing worked perfectly for me.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

No idea, I was quite let down though :(...

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Ive Liked barrow tubing

DRogGTX 3 points 3 months ago

Good Question. It's an amazing build, but the bends do look slightly wonky in places. The tubing still looks great, though.

hollow114 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

I don't mind wonky personally. I remember when Jay did that wonky build and only caught ****. But he was right, it catches the light better.

zknicho1 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

it may catch the light better but it draws the eyes away from where you want them to go. I just finished a hardline build and its tough to get these to align while maintaining stable bends.

Muco RGB - Ivan from linus tech tips

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

HAHA gotta love Ivan!

Rx_Titan 2 points 3 months ago

Yes!

ooferino 3 points 3 months ago

I love it! More pics though, please!

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

I uploaded some more, I was going to document the whole build process but my camera was acting up so I had to resort to the cell phone.

ooferino 3 points 3 months ago

Oh man... It's beautiful. You can't go wrong with the 011 dynamic+custom loop.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I have the corsair 570x but was wanting to build in the PC-011 so so bad

ooferino 2 points 3 months ago

I mean, if you had fun, there's no problem.

johnmaverick66 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

That is amazing, so beautiful, congrats for that build!

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Thanks a lot my guy, I wasnt sure really what color scheme I wanted to go with but this one suits me for now!

Hacxer_Jacxer09 3 points 3 months ago

An aptly names pc. I do envy that you have the skills and money to build a pc like that

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

There is lots of information, and people out there to help you learn more my friend. Get out there and get to it!

Hacxer_Jacxer09 2 points 3 months ago

Thanks for the kind words!

ibld 3 points 3 months ago

Amazing. Period

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Im glad you like it my guy, and ideas on other color schemes?

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I appreciate it man, good luck on any upcoming builds you may have!

onig 3 points 3 months ago

Damn that's a crazy machine, your pictures demonstrates the pinnacle of PC Enthusiast building, and it makes for the perfect PC ****.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Its a labor of love most definitely, but I am more than happy with how it turned out. Im glad you approve as well!

LOL i didnt know what colors to choose! Any ideas?

Cooldude234 3 points 3 months ago

This is truly and amazing PC build. WOW :) I was wondering how well the RTX 2018 performs?

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

they run amazing!!!

Dramaro 3 points 3 months ago

Question, why do you have the Maximus X Code listed in the Part List when in the pics, you have a Maximus X Hero instead? Just curious.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

Haha you are correct, thanks for the heads up!

dlwallace89 3 points 3 months ago

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Thanks a lot Brother, it's nice seeing so much love from the community. I know I loved every minute of building it!

Kcookmoore 3 points 3 months ago

How 'bout something middle class people can actually afford.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Hey man, I am completely middle class. Computers are just something I have a passion about. Just work towards what you each and every day my brother.

Gom3su 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I got 3 questions. - Why 4 sticks of ram in a dual channel memory architecture? - How do you control your rgb/rpm of the fans? - Have you overclocked anything? Like xmp profile and such.

Nice build. +1

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 3 points 3 months ago

I went with 4 sticks because for me aesthetically it is pleasing, the RGB on the fans are controlled through the Corsair Lighting Node Pros and synced with the iCue software, and the RPM of the fans are controlled through the Deepcool FH-10 fan hub. Currently I am just using the 3200mhz XMP for the ram but Have the CPU clocked in at 5.1ghz as a daily driver, and the GPU at 2115mhz after flashing the BIOS with the Gigabyte 360w BIOS. Thanks for the comment man!

Jachnoon 2 points 3 months ago

If it's only about looks on the ram, they make RGB blanks. Ie- it looks like ram with all the RGB goodness but they aren't real sticks. Just an FYI.

Super awesome build by the way. Love what you've done!

CloudZGaming 2 points 3 months ago

Lol please tell me what fps you get on fortnite

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

It is over 300fps, but always fluctuates a bunch because of the scale of a Battle Royal.

TewChaynz_ 2 points 3 months ago

Can you show me pictures of the icue software and the asus software on how you did the rgb, I don't get how I can do individual parts on rgb for the ram sticks.

AC1DFOX 6 Builds 3 points 3 months ago

Yes, This!! If this stupendous delight of a build wasn't enough proof of your wizardry, you seem to have a PHD in iCue.. Please show us how you set the individual controls on the RGB to do that. Wow. Sexy AF

mitchthomas 2 Builds 3 points 3 months ago

I dont know icue but for the ram sticks use aura. Go static, then go areas, then change your dram

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

As @mitchthomas stated the Asus software is really easy by just using a static color and then doing "By Area". In iCue you are going to want to make seperate color channels depending on how many colors you want, and then choosing "solid". This is where it gets tricky because it will not automatically light it all up, you have to click on the little plus sign next to the graph and take the slider in the graph all the way up as it controls your opacity. Glad you all like it, A screen shot of the software wouldnt really help out much for instructions.

One can only wish! I dont think so though as I am not a great photographer by any means. Some of these build you would swear Ansel Adams came and took the photos for the PC!

IncognitoGamer123 2 points 3 months ago

Could you make a list of games you play and the fps in those games? I would love to see how powerful your new computer is. Thank you and +1

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

I play my games at 1440p with a 165hz monitor. The games I play (Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege) all max out the refresh rate of my Omen 27.

clinger11 2 points 3 months ago

What is your wattage on this build?

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Under full load I believe it is roughly 550?

csmyth662 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

OH MY GOD THE RGB!!!! IM MELTING

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Dont melt to much...you got games to play!

Rotendo 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

Geezus... beautiful build! I have the same case and am building a new PC. Picked up a Thermaltake View 71 TG for my next build.

Anyway... I'm checking out reviews for the WD 1TB M.2 SSD. For the price you can't really beat that. Since this build will be primarily for gaming and aesthetically, they'll be hidden (my mobo has m.2 covers) So I'm forgoing the Samsung 1 TB SSD. No cables and faster.

Oh.. and the question. You're using the 960 Pro, I assume, for the OS, and the WD for all your games, yes? And how's the performance on the WD? More than likely I'll be pulling the trigger on this tomorrow. Thanks for your time!

Aammilham 1 point 2 months ago

Somehow when i press buy on this exact model, it took me to the newegg app. It stated this ram is meant for AMD build. Specifically stated for Threadripper. Till I saw your build, and youre on Intel's platform. So...is there any issues???

Its the ideal 4 x 8gb 3200mhz Wirh cas latency of 14. And i couldnt find any cheaper then the price here at newegg.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

no, its perfectly fine with intel.

Aammilham 1 point 2 months ago

Ok then. Thanks alot!

Hogbert_1999 1 point 2 months ago

Love this and a lot of inspiration drawn from it. I am looking into horizontal mounting of RTX2080Ti's on waterblocks into the Lian L 011D and see they can be too big restricting choices. Yours looks to fit fine can you confirm the fit of the card against the glass (how much clearance) any issues? also any detail on the parts used welcome.

SkysTheLimit_ submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I don't know the exact measurements between the glass but it's more than enough. I used the ekwb vector waterblock and back plate.

Hogbert_1999 1 point 2 months ago

Thankyou for your reply very much appreciated :-)

mrbister1234 1 point 2 months ago

So cool, Nice job!
