Update #2 : Thanks guys for the Feature! Makes me really proud!

Update #1 : Fully detailed part list and prices including watercooling parts.

Hey guys!

Some of you might remember my last build, GARGANTUA. It turned out I sold it because I had a good offer for it... I regretted a while to have sold this awesome build but now that I've finished my new one, I'm glad I did it :P

As usual, you can see it all in this 9 min video timelapse, from unboxing to benchmarks : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbtqR1Z0L6g

The build is called OLYMPIAN because the color theme is Gold/White and because I went ALL-IN on performance, like any athlete would :P

My goal was to be on the 3Dmark HOF and I did it for the Time Spy Extreme Graphics score :) It helped that it was winter in Montreal haha, I did those benchmarks with the windows open at -10 °C LOL

It was my toughest build yet! Each time I try to find new challenges. This time, as a first, I tried :

Pass-through fittings with quick disconnect valves, tempered glass etching and stand-alone reservoir (the biggest I could fit).

What I'm the most proud about this build is its HIDDEN quick disconnect valves as it allows both watercooled and air cooled GPUs and easy upgradeability!

What I'm the less proud about is those ugly ventilation holes I had to do for the stupid ROG PSU that only goes one side... at least we don't see the holes when the GPU is there...

Thanks and enjoy!

P.s. 24/7 stable overclock : CPU 5GHZ@1.33v, RAM 32GB 4266MHz@19-19-19-39, GPU core 2100MHz, GPU vram 8300MHz, Load GPU temp 47 °C.

Probably one of the most, if not the most, beautiful builds. Very well done.

"I did those benchmarks with the windows open at -10 °C LOL" You made me laugh :)

Your build is so very interesting that I actually looked at each and every picture you posted. I really like the "gold" theme. The gold tubing/fittings look awesome.

Just beautiful, well done.

Literally blood and sweat went into making this PC lol. Beautiful job as always. This build looks much more sophisticated than the Gargantua build.

Being picky, but as nice as the hardline looks, it would have been nice to see that used everywhere instead of the soft tube. That being said, it looks like that would be quite difficult with everything going on in the bottom of the case. Looks great regardless! +1

Yeah it would have been impossible to do hard tubing at the bottom IMO. Even soft tubing was really hard!

I never knew I had a perfect dream build until I saw this. I've also put this PC build on my bucket list to build before I die. Did I mention this build is amazing?

That looks awesome, I’m starting a new build soon and am inspired by what you’ve done, system looks super clean and the water cooling looks awesome was it difficult to do the water cooling?

  • 8 months ago

Honestly yes it was tough! It's a relatively small case. Especially the soft tubing at the bottom was hard to make.

It's just that the computer is so bright that it gives enough light for the photos haha!

Great build!

Why are you using soft tubing with the GPU? I thought the whole point for using hard tubes was to avoid the leeching...

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

He has clear fluid so that shouldn't be an issue. And over time some colors will stain hard tube too. Also, using gold colored hard tube would likely discolor when heated for bending. That said, I may have used a 90° fitting behind the GPU and made the tube connection lower so it would not be visible from the front. It still looks very good though.

I think we're talking about 2 different things. Leeching plasticizer has nothing to do with the liquid used. The tubes themselves start leaving residue in blocks even when you use clear liquid. I think you're talking about tube staining rather than soft tubing leaving plasticizer.

It does look great, no doubt!

It's to allow for quick disconnect fittings for easy upgradeability/maintenance of the GPU!

  • 8 months ago

Cool! I thought so.

By the time you're ready to upgrade, you're probably going to want to drain the loop because of those soft tubes anyway... I guess it's a preference thing. Why call it hardline when 50% of the build is using soft tubes :D

Anyway... Great build, good stuff! Looking pretty!

Beautiful build, but very bright in the dark. Is the brightness enough to bother you if the lights are out? Do I spy an E series OLED in the background?

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

No it doesn't bother me and you can control the brightness trough software. Yup LG OLED E6P! Best TV of 2016 :)

Oh ok good to know on the lights. OLED FTW! I have a 65E7P. Friggin LOVE it. It looks so amazing. If you ever want to show it off, pick up a copy of Planet Earth II or Blue Planet II.

Just wondering, why would you buy one of the most expensive graphics cards available if you were just going to put a new water block on it?

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

To get bleeding edge performance ;)

I had a 2080TI FE on my last build and even with the water block I couldn't get on the 3d mark HOF. The lightning Z has a different PCB design and allow for higher power limit, higher clockspeed and vram speed than my FE. But let's be clear we are talking about 1-2% difference here.

One of the best builds on PCP, and my favorite by all. Keep doing you because obviously, your doing great. Love the build. It's so clean and sharp looking. I wish I could build something like that. Don't have the money or the knowledge, but it would definitely be something I could try to shoot for in the future. Thanks for the great build.

The Z390 Godlike is a E-ATX motherboard so it fits well!
