well, that's the coolest thing i've seen all year. +1
Really hope you are re-using that 5820k or you got it for a steal... great job on the build!
I really appreciate a build that looks good whether the lights are on or off. Great job, quality work, pictures, and lighting. +1
not enough beige
Custom cables. Check. Glass Panels. Check. ITX. Check. Custom loop. Check. Carbon Fiber. Check. Magnetic Levitation. Check.
not sure what he needs 144hz 1440p displays for if he isn't gaming on it, and if he is, he won't be able to play high settings at those refresh rates.
it's a computer, you can emulate whatever you want on it as long as it isn't too demanding
Nice build! I recently replaced my 8350 with a 7700 but what you have here is almost exactly what I bought when i first build my PC. Hope it all works well for you!
Doesn't look like a Linear Fusion Rifle to me...
I'm building it for someone else, the board i chose has a lot of cool features (like dual LAN) and it will allow him to upgrade in the future. (as long as intel stops their compatability crap..) That was also the only ITX board available at a reasonable price. All he does is play WoW so it is going to be plenty powerful for him.
awesome looking build! Hard to get the cable management looking good in those cases without custom length cables..
he said 4 logical cores smh
I am in the process of building a similar system to this, but with a z370 itx board and a i3-8100, nice build!
looks at savings account
looks at computer
looks back at savings account
working on it! my next build is gonna be around that much for just the tower
EDIT: it's going to be around that much at first, until i add a second gpu
like i said i'm not using the 8350 anymore, i have the i7-7700, which is never going to bottleneck a 1060. And i JUST did a fresh install of windows so it isn't malware and i doubt it's background processes either, but i'll look into it
I had an AIO cooler and the pump failed when i was still using the 8350 so I had to use the stock cooler for the last bit of it's life.. so couldn't over clock. your cpu shouldn'd do any thermal throttling until around 80C though.
I should mess around with some overclocking on my GPU and see if i can suck some extra frames out of it, though. I'm using a 1060 though and i can't manage the same framerates you get with your 1050 ti.. perhaps silicon lottery? i don't know. I'm not worried about my CPU anymore since I upgraded to the 7700 non-K it works pretty great but i'll definitely mess around with an overclock on my 1060.
at 1080p? i wonder what i'm doing wrong
how come YOUR 1060 3gb and YOUR 8350 allowed you to get 60+ fps in PUBG? what resolution were you playing at? I recently ditched my 8350 for a 7700 that i got from someone for dirt cheap and it definitely improved my performance
i wish i had that kind of money
I still felt very unsure about messing around with computer parts, then i got shot.
pull some of them further to the back and hold them there with zip ties, no excuses!
Killer build! I can't wait until I can play at 1440p 100+hz... how loud is that keyboard? That's the one with the fake mechanical switches right? I can't stand my black widow anymore, the blue keys are really loud and my friends can't stand them cause they constantly hear them through my mic. I'm planning on getting red or speed switches.
TL;DR but +1 anyway, looks like this took forever
Fix your cables. FIX THEM Well.. at least your games will look good.
Everything in the case looks like it's in the wrong place. Neat. Nice wood. +1
You should swap out your fluid every 6 months ish, rinse everything when you do that, and i'd say do a deep clean every other time you swap fluids. Thermal paste only needs to be changed when you take your waterblock off.
Lots of criticism in here! I think you did a great job the only thing i'd be worried about is that power supply, I don't trust it.
since when did you need to glue on your fittings?!? that doesn't sound right. How are you going to take it apart?
more ram and more PCIe lanes.
I just noticed you are using the fittings I was planning on getting for my build! how do you like them?
This is my favorite build i've seen using this case, great job on it your bends look awesome! +1
7800X also has some advantages over the 8700K in certain applications
perhaps some of your memory problems are due to only using 2/8 slots instead of 4? might be something worth looking in to. Nice build! beautiful motherboard.
I smell a smelly smell that smells..... smelly..
Yeahhh it's pretty freakin loud. ditching it today though so it's all good
I'll be ditching my 8350 today and turning it into a minecraft server probably lol! I got a i7-7700 from someone on KSL with 16gb for $200! just had to buy a motherboard for it which will be arriving today! You'll be able to game just fine on that 8350, I've been using mine without an overclock on a stock cooler the last few months and doing just fine.
Nice build! I wonder why you're having those issues.. I am also running the 8350 and I have frequent problems when I try to sleep/hibernate my pc. I think it is either something to do with the processor or the motherboard just having issues with windows 10 or something.
Man, and my parents would kick me off the computer and tell me that video games were poisoning my mind. Lucky girl! +1
Grats on your first build man! +1 even though the dust in the processor picture hurt my feelings
I'm planning on building something pretty rediculous too in the next few months, if you want a bigger case that will fit everything you've got, try the Thermaltake Core X9 or X5 series, they are MASSIVE and budget friendly! :)
Although if your budget is as infinite as it looks, maybe you could go with CaseLabs and get something even better.
wait you have HOW MANY PUMPS??! what on earth man. +1 for your poor wallet that's gotta be hurting after all that
Please tell me you didn't actually pay 699 for the 8700k.. that's mad. Awesome build though!
I love the look of your bends! sweet build man.
first time i've seen the liquid gaming kit on pcpp! Nice build, needs more pics though.
My guess would be that he had it lying around already.
upvoted for ace ventura
Not sure where you are now 9 months down the road but if you are still looking to go to watercooling, EKWB has their liquid gaming lineup now, you can get a full loop for your system for way under half the price of getting a copper loop, and they do all the hard work for you, you just have to make sure you don't buy any upgrades for your loop that are copper/brass/nickel. I know thermaltake's radiators are pretty nice and they are aluminum/zinc which will work nicely with the liquid gaming parts and they are HUGE and would be perfect for your case.
