Meet "Ragnar"

by omnikron702

Description

So I did a cyber Monday upgrade to my pc New motherboard and cpu motherboard I got for $100 and I7 7700K I got for $250 also put my Benq ultra wide 35 on a arm. And got me a nice MSI gaming pro Trio gtx 1080ti for $729 on massdrop. Got me some studio monitors JBL 305 and New cans DTS 770 pro 32ohm . New Desk Ikea and some Led lights for it. Still not done looking for a new case and cooler wanna go air cooling this time around.

This was my old build Quick Silver Elite ver 2.0 This a update to my first pc build I replaced the corsair h100i v2.0 with H7 and added more cryorig fans 3 140 QF and one 120 QF. Also I overclocked my locked i5 6500 to 4.5. For RGB I went with the HUE + also got a ultra wide screen 35 Benq xr3501

Looking good! Btw pretty sure that cooler is the regular h115i not the Pro version.

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Yes you are right

a6600 2 points 13 months ago

darn I wanted to see the new one! Either way nice build :)

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

The new ones look pretty sweet

KarlTheBushmonster 2 points 13 months ago

Hey i was wondering what were the gpu thermals under full load? i was wondering as i was intending to build basically the same pc and i'm a little worried about gpu temps with only 1 intake and 1 exhaust

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

It hits 70 but my to exhaust fans run high I can feel the hot air blowing out. Im looking to transfer to a new case where I can mount my rad on the top and have more intake fans blowing cool air in.

KarlTheBushmonster 1 point 13 months ago

THANKS :)

AsianPartPicker 2 points 12 months ago

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Even if i don't really like your keyboard (but it is still subjective) is your setup awesome: my favourite parts are the skull and the dog :D. What is the little thing under your monitor right from your BOSE soundbar?

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Thank you Glad you like my setup the Bose soundbar is for my ps4 and that red box is my Forcusrite 2I2 I use it to plug in my studio monitors JBL 305

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

You know how to get corsair dominator platinum ram to 3000mghz on the asrock board? I have no idea and can't seem to find out how to!

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

I setup on the bios xmp but it took me like 2 reboots for it to take.

Haze159 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Where did you get those white keycaps?

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

At amazon they are Corsair white double shot white key caps I tell you that the lights are better when using these key caps.

Haze159 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Thanks, they look awesome.

CrushedNutz 1 point 12 months ago

Did you use the cooler master bracket thing to vertical mount the gpu?

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Yes that’s the cooler master bracket it was hell trying to order it seem like its always outta stock

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Yes it is what do you think does it look good?

CrushedNutz 1 point 11 months ago

Yeah i like it. I was gonna get one, but will probably just mod the case instead

Bobbert69 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I love your setup! Super clean and great colors too. I need a new desk and yours is the first one I really like - what is the name/model?? Also, did you put the white sleeves on your CPU cooler hoses or did it come that way? I've been wanting to do that with my white build but I can't figure out how. We have the same GPU and I've been wanting to do a vertical mount with it, but I don't want to lose the RGB backplate lighting (silly, I know). So I've been looking for pics of someone's build to see if they would still be noticeable. I've got one channel left in my Hut+ and thought about putting strips behind my monitor, but I like how you put yours around the desk. Did you light those with the Hue+ also or just use a regular RGB line for the desk?

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Thank you I love my desk took sometime to get it the way I like it. Here is a list starting off with the desk. You can get them at Ikea The top is kitchen counter top called KARLBY 98 inches longs and two sets of alex draws on each side. all from Ikea. The RGB is a cheap strip from amazon gonna have to buy another one part of it got damage when I moved to another house. The white sleeves on the aio are from cablemod I also have the Hue+ and have the nzxt x62 and a new case and motherboard did a few changes will post pic up soon.

Bobbert69 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Great! Thanks I'll get that sleeve kit and look at the Ikea parts next time I'm in Houston. Looking forward to your updated pics.

omnikron702 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Bobbert69 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Lol yeah that's why I don't have any pictures posted from a distance on my 2 builds here

EddieG4560 1 point 11 days ago

Hey I was windering how is the coolermaster gpu bracket? Is it sturdy? Does the card sag at all? Is it made out of good materials? Thanks so much for your time and awesome build btw!
