Dat Rig (updated post)

I think im happy with the parts i chose on this one. The H80i and matrix 7970 were both open box deals on newegg. The logitech g510 i got on craigslist for $40; thats the reason why i scored on those prices and no issues so far :D. The Acer monitor i got for free doing a reflow job on a hp dv6000 gpu which worked out nicely and saved me some cash. This is updated from the last time i posted on here; just wanted you guys to see my finished build :). Feel free to critique me on any parts you feel unnecessary, thank you :D

First of nice build +1, Second I want to build something repetitively similar, so I have a few questions, Hows the monitor? and the PSU?

jokermike [Submitter] [3 Builds] 1 point 14 months ago

this is my first acer monitor and i got to say it acutally produces sharp colors and vivid images :). The psu is pretty awesome imo, the fan inside only goes off when underload and doesnt stay on for too long. Very silent psu at that.

Nice build, I was thinking of building something similar but could that case fit an h100i in the top because I already have that cooler form my old build.

jokermike [Submitter] [3 Builds] 1 point 14 months ago

yes its possible. When you buy the case new it comes with a 200mm fan on top. Just remove the top plate and unscrew it off. i was gonna go with a h100i myself but was able to get an h80i for a really good deal

Jacob-Harris 1 point 14 months ago

cool thanks, I love the looks of the case and the handles would be useful for me

jokermike [Submitter] [3 Builds] 1 point 14 months ago

yeah i use the handle all the time when i unplug and take it out to my garage to dust it out :)...its really an awesome case!

Awesome build, nice to see another Stryker out in the wild. That Asus card looks mean with the leds.

+1 for checking out my build as well as having that Bubba Fett on your build! HA! How is that H80i working for you? I've been looking to learn more about water cooling and figure my first step is a closed loop CPU cooler.

jokermike [Submitter] [3 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

it's really great!.. my temps are on average 46c under full load. currently i have my i7 overclocked to 4.5ghz and it's running like a champ on this water loop, If you're gonna start with a closed water loop i would honestly go for the H100i, only because its about a 10 dollar difference from the H80i. I only got the H80i because it was an open box deal. These coolers are very easy to install as well. I've also heard that some people are modifying some closed water loop systems to work on gpus. I've yet to see it done myself but it is a curiosity i would like to attempt. Anyways, thanks for looking :D

vinchinzo [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks for the info. I read up some mods as well with closed loops on gpus. I think most of them run into an issue with the memory on the gpus running super high because you have remove the entire heat sink that covers the whole board just to put the water cooler on the gpus.

Check out this link, I found it helpful.
