Bending hard tubing is not that easy. You can have problems when bending with too much heat and too little heat. you can run into alignment issues. bending hard tube is very time consuming and risk of wasting tubing. The plus side is you don't have many connections where you might get leakage. The amount od bends he has it would have taking him a lot of time and a lot of headaches. I think he did the right choice.
That is a fail proof setup. A little on the pricey side but if the $ isn't a issue for you, you are good to go. If you are not planning on storing a lot of pictures and videos, you can save a little on the 4tb and go for 1 or 2. Overall those are good quality and performance parts. Whatever you end up with, send us some pics.
For the first 10 pictures, I was thinking to myself why did he put 2 GPUs and the CPU in one loop on one rad. That is going to get hot. Then I saw the long one at the bottom on pic 11. Enjoy your very nice build and congrats on the feature.
Nice and tidy. looks good man. At first I was freaking out because I thought you had it sitting on felt. I was saying "this guy is nuts the static will fry everything. I then realized it was a MDF board. Again good job and enjoy. Keep us posted it you ever upgrade or change anything.
Looks really nice. The ATX mobo looks like an ITX in that case Holy S#1T it's big. although big is good it you are going to custom water cool. Keep us posted with the updates.
Haha I like how you price listed the action figure. Nice build and nice choice of parts.
True that What you don't see can't bother you Haha.
Looking at your old PC, I understand why you went for a monochrome build. Haha .I mean Colors were all over the place in that thing. Overall Nice new build man.
Nice looking build. I love the CRYORIG cooler, it just looks perfect with that black top. You forgot to price the 2 peripherals on your last pic. I'm sure they increase your gaming and working experience. Haha
Ya you will be good with that one.
Sure will. I will post a complete unit soon. Haha that little tean bracket was a pain to remove without breaking it.
Haha I am redoing one as well the case will be altered. So far I have painted the case black and the teal drive holder red.
That's a shame. Sorry You had so many problems. To be honest I'm not a big fan of gigabyte either. I much prefer MSI and Asus. Thanks for the not working builds it's nice to learn the bad, it's not always rainbow and unicorns Haha. Good luck with the boss.
Haha Nice. Looks good and the H50 make sense since the space is limited in that case. Again Nice build man.
Very nice build. Love the MSI touch on the table. You HDD should be fine they are usually resistant to Shock but it would have scanned for damage like yours did. Thank god everything is fine with it .
Very nice I love the custom touch of the H100i. The MSI logo on it looks great with the Red tubes.
Haha nice. See I knew it was something easy Anyway Nice build man.
It is still a good price. But he got better that's all Haha
That's exactly what it was. People overthink stuff sometimes. Green screen and several pictures in photoshop.
+1 for the one core potato hahaha. But the quality of the pics though did you take take with a 2000 flip phone.
The best part of the PSU are the toes on picture 3. Those must have cost a lot. That why you couldn't get windows. I am just kidding Good build overall. Enjoy and keep us posted when you upgrade it.
Nice build. Case looks good. you will get people telling you stuff about your PSU. Usually I don't say much about them even when people bash on the Corsair CX series so much but If you plan on overclocking, I would get a better PSU first. Good job overall
The r9 290 Vapor looks great. The size though... it's bigger and longer that the freaking Mobo. What supports what in that case Hahah. Nice build Part list is good. PSU and SSD would probably be the next upgrade.
I'm assuming 2 years ago the PC was not water cooled to the hybrid made sense. When you make a custom loop, Might as well include the GPU.
Hahaha no that would help but the Rams are a big plus on a fm2 cpu.
Test of OC and higher ram
Exact same CPU, MOBO, COOLER AND RAM as mine Hahah. Nice build and did you try overclocking at all.
When you do go for 16GB 2400 rams. This CPU is based on the APU 7850K and benefits of about 10 to 20 FPS just by using higher ram. An SSD would help too. Those should be your next upgrade.
I have an old Case that has almost the exact same layout for the bay drive and on top PSU. The trick is to bring all the cables behind the Hard drive bay and use extension to bring power where required. It would look way better. I know Non modular PSU can be a pain, specially in a case with such layout. Zip ties will help too.
For your next upgrade I would suggest a SSD and 2400 ram. You would get min 20fps just from these 2.
Overall nice little budget build.
A fresh coat of paint on the outside of the case and it would look OK!!. When I saw the PSU, I thought WTF is he doing then I saw the interior and realized you used A PSU not suited for the case. good job on the refurbishing.
Hey listen to the left shark, he is always right. HAHA
Build looks good. Love the Antec case. I almost bought that as my first case. I know the space at the back is very tight but you could pass a few cables there to allow more airflow from those from fans. Again it is your first build Good luck and enjoy that PC.
walang anuman! Yes the Refresh rate is set set in the TV's hardware. You would need to change the tv but a 60hz should be ok. It is in the minimum but playable. Save some money and get a good screen when your budget and space allows. Good build overall.
I love the black and gold. Yes going for colors other and the standard blue and black or red and black is a pain in the backside. Good job on your build, it looks great.
I Like the upgrade for this old HP. I have a A1310n myself that I am refurbishing . Good job.
Magandang pc mo. lahat MSi and AMD. I love it . My build will be used on a tv as well as long as you have an hdmi input with high hertz. 60 hertz will be the lowest to go 120 hz would be ideal. Good job and welcome back to the PC master race.
Look good so far. Try to find some sleeves for the pump wires. a nice white or blue sleeve would be nice. Good luck and keep us posted.
Good job retrofitting the cards into that older case. We use the same pc's at work. It got me thinking what if I get myself one of those... I could be playing all day and the boos wouldn't even know haha. Sadly in real life it doesn't work that way. Anyway Good job on your build
You are welcome and Yeah being able to rotate the heat sink depending on exhaust location is always a plus. Good jog again.
Look from picture 10 to 19 that metal plate that says NZXT on the bottom section and has a little that's cut on the top section. Well that plate is suppose to be black or silver depending on supplies. You would think that this is factory. I think he did a good job.
+1 for AMD. Good job on the paint and sleeves. Holy ****!!!! that Heat sink looks amazing. I might just go for that, It makes everything look cleaner. Good job on your build
That awkward moment when your build Is only worth the price of 1 GPU from his 4 year old daughter 's pc .
Very nice build.
Haha nice. I know the mobo takes up to 4 gb. I was thinking about overclocking the CPU, upgrading the rams to 4 gb and adding a low end graphics card. The only thing is the 184 pin DDR are 16$ per GB. I decided it's not really worth it in that PC.
Those are great fans, I have them myself but the performance AF fans are for Air Flow meaning they great to bring air in and out of the case without any restriction. If you would have went for the Quiet SP meaning static pressure, you have been able to get even cooler temps. The SP fans are designed for restricted air flow or pressurized flow. They pull more or push more against something, filter, Radiator or grill. Just my 2 cents. Those fans are good just the SP's would have work better in that application.
My build will eventually look like yours, Blood red dye in the coolant and Red corsair fans. Good job on you build
Parts Chosen are great for the price. Good job on the build Hope your friend was happy with it.
Those are called cable combs. They can be purchase separately. Some red ones would look good in your rig.
Alright where do I apply. Just kidding but that sounds awesome definitely something I would like to do. Build looks good and keep us updated on the next HIS and HERS.
What kind of job do you have to be paid to play games. I want that haha
That cooler and that PSU makes a lot more sense. We didn't force you to change it we just gave our opinions. I'm sure you will be happier with the new ones.
Pffffff That thing would run WItcher 3 BF4 and GTA V on ultra simultaneously. But mineswiper don't count on it. HAHA
