nice build, but I think your desk is a bit too small for your setup. It personally looks cramped and uncomfortable
I think that's the first time I've ever seen someone use volumetric lighting to showcase their rig and I love it. Is it just a regular old fog machine that you used?
So this is an old build, but I like the charts you added. How do you do that? I'd like to be able to add it for my finished builds.
what are temps like?
how much is almost?
edit: and be wary. if you upgrade and get an m.2, more storage, something else, etc, you could run low on lanes and see a serious performance dip
Have fun with your next build :)
someone's new to using online forums lol
I'd love to see more pictures than just the one. Also, try managing your cables or adding some beautification parts inside the case- it's looking a little sparse in there, lol
Did it get moved to a different room than the original pictures are in? It just sounded kind of funny after seeing a window in the wall lol. Also, loving that background and art on the wall ;)
How'd it end up?
First off, great build! I have a question about the case, though. I was looking at using this case in a build and I wanted to know how sturdy it is. Both of those sort of side flap parts for the radiators- how well do they hold up? I don't want to bump it and have the entire loop crack open or make a fitting leak or something.
I think that's the most images that I've ever seen in a single PCPARTPICKER post at one time lol
All GPUs come prebuilt, or at least I haven't heard of a disassembled GPU that you can buy as a kit or something. Also, both your build images and the parts list show dual Gigabyte 1080 Ti's, not a seahawk 2080 ti. Maybe update the build?
Edit: reread info page- I see that there is a note at the bottom showing that you have the new card. I'd love to see some pictures!
what would make you think that they were a woman lol
custom hardline cooling
top GPU doesn't have a backplate

10/10 build but you gotta set that GPU right man lol
what the ****
uses rx 580
uses rx 580
all jokes aside nice build dude
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll be sure to post more pictures of my computer when I can then. I'm glad you liked the setup tho! _^
I bought the SSD back before the prices really started to fall. It was about two years ago, and $60 for a 128gb SSD was the best deal I could find. I'm adding a 512gb m.2 soon to put games and things on because of the fact that the prices have dropped so much.
Also, it really isn't true that there's no benefit from getting another 1070 ti.
That review sums it up quite nicely; for the games that I play there are MASSIVE performance boosts and I get almost 2080 ti level performance for about half the cost.
I do agree with you about the monitor though. The reason why I waited was that I had preferred to max out my settings previously rather than run on 1440p because there was a more noticeable difference with my setup- my monitor is about three feet away from my face and because of that it looks fine for now. After the hardware upgrades inside of my computer, I plan on getting a 21:9 monitor with at least a 100hz refresh rate and 1440p.
the cables coming off of the GPU look a bit odd, why are they like that?
well alright then. have you delidded?
wym? Just now I read the description about store selling you the wrong DIMM ram so it has to be single channel. Unless I'm missing some info, that really doesn't make any sense. If it's the same ram as in the part list it should work just fine
Holy ****, 95C on a custom loop like that? Even after 24 hours of constant burning, that's insane! Does the CPU run that hot naturally, or is it possible that something isn't seated right/ airflow isn't good? It just seems kind of insane to me to have a loop like that and hit those temps. Personally, at that point I'd just delid and apply liquid metal. It might not actually harm the CPU, especially under normal use, but it just makes me wanna cry seeing really nice cooling but then a hot *** cpu.
he built his pc and is using it in the meantime. if you read comments he said numerous times that hes getting one soon, a 1060 is what hes thinking so far.
hes getting the gpu soon, read all of the comments lol
smarter than I was when saving for my first computer, tbh
get an rx 580, cheaper and same performance; you can also wait a year and get the new RX series coming out. You could get like 1070 ti~ performance for about 200.
dude fix your ram lol
One more point that I should make- if you plan on doing serious overclocking, get the model (ML240L) with the bigger radiator. This one is very nice (ML120L) but unless I delid my temps can sometimes hover into the mid 60s when on my current medium OC. If I wanted to do a heavy overclock on it, i'd prob either delid or get the 240mm edition. Either way, it's a great cooler, especially when paired with the motherboard as they both work with MSI's Mystic Light.
halo fans in, m.2 coming soon. possibly a curved monitor as well.
Cool. Have fun building it! If you need any pointers, just ask.
That's an extremely weak power supply for the parts that you have in your build. You will probably be fine, but if your power draw jumps in an intense workload you might get crashing or bluescreens. You're using an 8086k, so I recommend switching to a better cooler unless you want your CPU to die after a few years, the 8086k runs HOT. Definitely get a better motherboard, it's kind of ridiculous given your other parts. You went for 32GB of ddr4 3000 ram- 32GB is complete overkill, I've never even maxed out my 16 with multiple Chrome tabs, Photoshop tabs, blender projects, and other various monitoring softwares open. Also, the RAM is kind of slow considering your other parts. Good pick for the SSD if you don't store files locally. The card is.... a bit underpowered, all things considered. It's a great card, don't get me wrong, but it's a bit of an odd card that you paired with the CPU. Nice pick on the case. All in all it's a great build, you just have some wonky unevenly matched parts. Hope you have fun building your son's computer! (I do recommend giving him your board and PSU and getting new ones, same thing with the card, possibly)
Did you actually build this computer? I'm starting to doubt that after you ask what the "GPU" is
I completely recommend this cooler! I stress tested my cpu for four hours, and the temps didn't change at all. It hit its max temp listed in the build (I forgot what it was) and stayed there. I highly recommend this cooler.
Do you mean 6s?
its 2080 not 2800. Also, your mobo light is off. Also, the cpu needs a k at the end.
No problem. Happy building!
It's definitely nice. Just for the record, I have two complaints: There's only one full bandwidth PCIE x16 slot, and there's only one RGB header, meaning a controller will most likely be required if you want to light up your case. Good luck!
It's so easy to overclock! In the BIOS there are two buttons at the very start where you can turn on CPU boosting and RAM boosting without any trouble at all. Before I played around with OC'ing my stuff, I got my CPU to run at 4.5GHz with the click of a button instead of the 3.6GHz.
Just curious, what coolant did you use that matched the color you set your computer to so well? Did you use white with LEDs? It looks so perfect that it seems like you just switched out the coolant when you changed LED colors lol.
I'm sorry but you went with all of these awesome specs and didn't watercool? lol
If you're 5 grand in why stop there? No self respecting man should spend less on a computer than their car lol
Switch to Android! I've used both, the Android OS seems scary, but after about a day it's waaaay easier to use that iOS. Only once you need to upgrade though, stick to the 6s for now, not a bad phone.
For such high end parts and peripherals, the 1070 ti seems a bit lacking. No 1080 ti?
wait a minute
Oh, sorry! I read the comment in a different way than you meant it, I thought you were correcting him for saying AMD was bad. My apologies!
