Description

I made a build not long ago but here is the updated and final version :)

Well this is my finished product, took a few months to finish because I had bought other parts for money reasons but over the past months I started buying the parts I really wanted and now its finally complete :)

The case is a Lian Li O11 Dynamic with a 7700K clocked at 4.8GHz (I can reach 5GHz easy but rather keep temps lower) and a Strix 1080Ti O11G. The system runs really good, the CPU runs at 35-38C on idle and around 65C under load. I have it under volted to 1.184v and voltage set to Adaptive so it can go down when is not needed. The chip is delidded, I used Delid Die Mate 2 to open it, replaced the stock TIM with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, and finally used Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut between the IHS, and the cooler.

The GPU its cool most of the time even now where in the UK we are getting 28C ambient temp. I have the GPU fans set at 55% at 60C but the bottom PC intake helps it, it stays on 60-65C with a manual OC over the factory OC so I imagine when temps go back to 0-10C it will be much better.

The cooler its a Corsair H105 but I changed the fans to Noctua Chromax F12. In total I am using 6 Noctua Chromax F12 and 3 S12A at the bottom. Overall I have 3 bottom 120mm, and 3 side 120mm fans as intake, finally 3 120mm fans as outtake pushing through the rad.

I recently had to change my Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz, the die was made by Hynix, because it would randomly crash and not let my PC boot. I returned them and bought a set of G Skill Trident Z RGB 3200MHz 14-14-14-34. They use Samsung B Die which is considered the best DRAM chip for overclocking and tighter timings.

The PC has a 960 Evo 250GB as boot drive and a 2.5 inch 850 Evo 250GB for my main games. I also have a 3.5inch 2TB drive for everything else.

This Dell monitor has really good image quality, G Sync, 165Hz refresh, and 1440p resolution. I can not complain to be honest, much better than what I expected. I will upgrade to a 1440p Ultrawide monitor with HDR in the future.

I play everything on 1440p 144Hz and it runs beautifully. I wish I could had waited 2 months and bought the 8700K when I purchased the CPU in Sept, but the 7700K is a monster anyways and for gaming is more than enough. At 1440p/144Hz we are GPU limited anyways :)

I hope everyone likes it, comment if you have any questions.

Nice build! Loving those DBZ nendoroids!

How hard was it to delid the cpu? I currently have an i7-6700k clocked at 4.5 Ghz and want to push the temps lower but am scared of the possibility of destroying my cpu trying to delid it.

Thanks :) The delidding process was fairly easy, you just put the CPU on the delidding tool, and put the screw on the slider and it will come off with ease. Just use a blade, scissor, or something like that to remove the stock TIM. The only part where you have to be careful is putting liquit metal on the CPU and bottom of the IHS. Also I recommend using Black Silicon Adhesive to glue it back on because it will move if you dont and that can cause LM to spill on the CPU and break it. The tool comes with an extra piece that allows you to keep pressure on the chip while the glue dries. If you do that it will be fine, there are plenty of videos just in case you have questions ;)

I personally think its really really good, the only thing I would add is HDR but besides that is amazing. Just keep in mind it does not come with integrated speakers if that is important to you.

super clean build man +1, did you tint the glass on the case or is it just the lighting? the glass looks darker then the stock photos online.

Thanks man. No it is the standard glass, it must be because of mostly dark components and the light coming from the back of the case. I just changed one picture that was taking in night time to a daytime picture :)

Thank you :) I am thinking of water cooling with soft tubes but it is an extra £500 more or less and I am not sure it needs it.

Ohhh niceeee, exactly the build I'm going to make with the same fans. I just have one question, how's the acoustics with so many fans? Are they generally silent? What RPM do you keep mostly for the 6 intake fans? Thank you!!!

Those fans are connected to a fan hub and from there to the CPU so they scale together. They spin at around 700-800rpm most of the time, and up to 1200ish under load. They are very silent fans to be honest.

The link is not working, I was able to fix it but it says that it is pending Mod Approval.

This will be the link once its approved I am sure: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/c9Ftt6
