Can't wait. I'm really curious about the thermals on the cpu with a 240 rad. Do you plan on overclocking the CPU?

We typically just run the clocks at stock settings for the initial benchmark run on the live stream, but we're curious as well, so will spend some time looking at overclocking for the Completed Build write-up that is usually published a week or so after the build.

Then they've chosen the right case. That thing basically disassembles itself, when it gets hit by a breeze.

[Edit]

I can't english today.

I can tell that I am already liking this build, due to the new Cooler Master case which I have not seen in any build until now. The i7 8th Gen and the Team T-Force RGB Ram sticks are going to make this build aesthetically pleasing.

well.. the case has horrible airflow. and build quality is bad for Cooler master cases.

While it may look nice, Gamers Nexus had a lot of criticisms for it - keep in mind that they can afford to not pad their reviews for Cooler Master's sake to give us actual reviews. So it wouldn't really be recommended to buy the case.

I've heard good things about this case, I am changing a few things when mine comes in the mail...but I am really excited to use this case. I'm moving up from a Masterbox 5, so this case is a welcome change.

The post above has been updated, but I wanted to mention in the comments as well that we had something come up at the last second and needed to bump the live stream by one day.

The live stream will now be on Friday, October 27th at 2PM CDT.

Sorry for the last minute confusion!

Now will y'all be hooking this case up to 2 wind turbines like Linus from LTT?

Oh man. I hadn't seen that until you asked. I think we'll just stick to the stock fans.. my ears are still ringing a bit after hearing that thing power on. :D

Nice build boss. Can this PC run 1920x1080 144hz Overwatch on EPIC settings?

  • 24 months ago

We haven't run it through the benchmark suite yet, but given our previous Kaby Lake i7-7700K / 1080 Ti build managed around 174fps at 1440p on Epic, I think it looks pretty promising. ;)

I want to know how the MasterLiquid 240 holds up when the 8700k is overclocked to something around 4.5 GHz, but I haven't seen any information on it. Does anyone know anything?

Glad you enjoyed it! We'll run benchmarks on it next week. I'll also be sure to update the top of this post when the completed build write-up is posted.

Not sure I follow -- it's a pretty positively reviewed unit.

You know how people are. If they aren't Platinum Certified of at least 1000W and from EVGA or Corsair, people think they are bad quality

The V750 has a 5 year warranty, not 2.

One of the goals we place on planning our build videos is to intentionally try out new and different components. We've built with units that fall under the 3 series you mentioned, and will probably do so again, but there are plenty of great options to explore out there.

Regardless of the warranty, JonnyGuru (a very highly regarded source on printers) said it was a mediocre unit, not up to the previous standards of the semi-modular V750 from Cooler Master.

2 years is what newegg has to give:

Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years Limited Warranty period (labor): 2 years

But coolermaster is 5 years http://us.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/powersupply/gold/v750.html check specs.
