Description

This is Red Husky after getting rid of the fugly, slow, and a very lonely stick of RAM.

I love PC building and have wanted to do a custom loop for a while so I made it happen. This overkill gaming rig is for my own personal use and some dabbling with YouTube.

The color scheme is a little different than most. Red and black is the most common thing do to. WELL! THAT AIN'T HAPPING HERE! White, Red, and Black a Red Husky basically!

I put my auto body skills to work and painted the rads and my EK Supremacy Evo. Hell, no idea why I bothered! But, so much better than plain black.

Red was handled by LEDs on the Killer Mobo and Ekoolant

Black was kinda of a given due to the case I picked, the Base 600 with temper glass which had only just come out. I had my eye on the P400S but, the be quiet caught my eye due to its lower pricing and same specs on paper...

Here is the Pure Base 600, for a more non-extreme build it is fine. In my use case, space is a fricking premium with me having to stick my hard drive in the recesses between the mobo tray and side panel. OH, right the mofo front panel broke the first time I pulled it off! How I managed to get the 120mm rad in the back into its place is beyond me.

Okay, well what about the hardware?!?!

Ryzen 5 1600 is a fricking monster that crushes a I7-7700k easily. The 1070 is under stressed by most games, the only time I see 99% is in Verdun and Arma 2 with resolution percentage cranked up. The SSHD I have owned for gosh over 3 years now and well it does just fine. The Mobo is just fine nothing to write home about. Anyway, its late and I do not feel like writing anymore.

If you want to see the youtube video on this PC that is well very badly edited due to me using new software that was a pain to use follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRl60pm2tBY&t=794s

I was going to use bitfenix Alchemy 2.0 LED strips but, got the NZXT braided cable ones since they were cheaper.

Anyway, I'm just reposting it because I updated it with new Ram. This was as probably the first ryzen 5 completed build on this website. People were like wow the first builds a water cooled one!

How are you liking those xflow radiators?

There, not Xflow, they are Dark Side: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhryjD2yl-o. To me, a rad is a rad. You can take a car rad if you wanted to and use it lol. Cause why not?

The V650 was bought due to its price of $90 Canadian due to an open box and the fact it uses good components. I do not mind it really...

I mean the back one looks like a cross flow radiator in the picture, those are usually single pass instead of dual pass so they have less cooling potential. Some aren't that great but some are still pretty good.

Well since you can't read and have no idea what you're talking about, I guess I'm done here.

Enjoy your PC.

But for future reference "xflow" means cross flow, which is what both of your rads are. It means the water goes in one corner and comes out the opposite corner making a single pass by the fans. Rads with inlets on the same end make 2 passes, and as such cool the liquid more effectively. That's why I asked how you like them, because they do not work as well simply by design, but some are better than others.

Idk about "crushing" an I7-7700k. Still a very good CPU for about $100 less than an I7-7700k. Hopefully more games are developed to take advantage of more threads.

Um, yeah it does crush the 7700k on Cinebench... Sure it's not as good in single core but, I like to stream and the fps drop is very little for me due to the power of the 1600.

Ahh, ok on cinebench. Thought you were talking gaming performance. Will be doing a 1600 build in a month or so. Can't wait!

What about the low-end monitor though? I don't doubt the 1070 is not stressed :/
