Description

My now completed 2019 build. Overkill for what I use it for, but it has been 7 years since my last build and I wanted to pull out all the stops. Clean and straight liquid cooling lines were important to me in this build; and this was actually the first time I have done hard tubing, (so yes, I went through a lot of wasted tubes to get it right). Sleeved my own power supply cables... will never do that again - It's very tedious.

Build-wise everything went together pretty smoothly. However, 4 hours were spent trying to get bios to play nice - pain in the butt. Once the bios was sorted the OS install and overclock went surprisingly quickly. Got lucky with the silicone lottery as the CPU over clocks to 4.375GHz @ 1.4v.

Quick Specs: - Single cooling loop with dual 360 Radiators (both exhausting out of case) - 3900x overclocked 4.3GHz @ 1.35v - Infinity fabric overclocked to 1866Mhz to maintain 1:1 ratio with 3733MHz Ram - Ram timings tightened to 16, 16, 16, 36 @ 3733MHz (Dual Channel) - 2080 TI overclocked 1810MHz (130% Power Target and 175Mhz overclock).

There is also a visual flow indicator with a temp probe, but I cant remember exactly where i bought that off the top of my head.

Quick question my friend.... what's the difference in connecting GPU into the 2nd PCI-e slot rather than the first? Is there any difference at all?

Shouldn't be but check with the manual on the motherboard you are using (16x may only be available on select slots)

hey what did you is as your guide for the water cooling or you just wing it? Never did water cooling, but i really want to, especially the hard tubing.

Awesome build! Best one I've seen. Correct me if I'm wrong but did you also watercooled your mobo?

  • 4 months ago

Yes, VRM is water cooled - but no, I did not do it myself. The Crosshair VIII Formula comes with an EK water block preinstalled specifically for this type of build.

Love the hardware choices, no kill like overkill, I say! The tube routing is a little... busy for my taste, though. It looks like you're trying to channel something Singularity Computers would do, but on the cheap. (That's ok, though. I can't afford his work nor your build, so much for my thoughts.) Congrats on the feature!

Thanks, had never seen Singularity Computers prior to you mentioning them; after checking them out I agree they have some really clean looking work. Tubing in this case was just personal preference.

This is ACTUALLY my next dream build. The exact way, too. My parts all deserve liquid cooling on a more enthusiast level!!!! Good Job Man!!!

Wow I have had the exact same build (minus case and cooling) in my cart for months. Is the 3733 worth it or do you think I could get away with the 3600 and be fine?

  • 4 months ago
  • 2 points

3600 will be fine. The infinity fabric runs at 1:1 with 3600 RAM straight out of the box. Initially my thought was that if i couldn't overclock the infinity fabric I could always slow the ram down to 3600 and tighten the timings. I ran 3600 speeds and 3733 speeds and didn't notice much of an increase in Cinebench, Prime95, or 3dMark.

Awesome thanks for the Info. It's so crazy seeing everything down to the keyboard being the exact same. I plan on building it when i get back from deployment, can't wait!

I could buy a car with this. And with the time taken to put it together, I could put it into better working order. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a PC? I normally don't think a PC should cost anywhere more than 2,000$ by itself, not including peripherals. And the more money one spends, I feel the time taken to put together shouldn't increase exponentially.

  • 4 months ago

I don't necessarily disagree, however, it makes me happy when I look at it... and to me that justifies the cost.

I mean, I'd be happy if I looked at something at that in real life too hahaha. It'd be a shame if it never got pushed to its maximum potential, which is quite literally through the roof, so hopefully you do that.

Hi! Awesome Build!

Well, I am myself trying to gather up the hardware and I might ask you some questions in the coming days.

  1. Who is the manufacturer of your RAM's? (I mean if it's Samsung, Hynix or Micron)

  2. Do you have Rainbow Six Siege for PC? Because there is something specific I need you to check for me.

  3. If you have Discord / Steam or something else where I could reach you directly? Let me know.

Thanks :)

The actual ram chips are made by Samsung - specifically they are the K4A8G085WB-BCPB. Here is the full data sheet on them if you REALLY need to know more about them and have a few hours to kill. https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/global.semi/file/resource/2017/11/8G_B_DDR4_Samsung_Spec_Rev2_1_Feb_17-0.pdf

Sorry, I don't have Rainbow Six Siege and don't really use discord or steam. However, I'd be happy to answer your questions the best I can on here.

Tripple bends on your first watercool build and so clean - respect. Can you say a bit more how it went? Did you use some kind of a jig?

The temps on cpu and you look a bit high. Do you know why? Are you happy with the rads /fans/blocks you got?

Thanks!

  • 2 months ago

Triple bends are a pain... There was trial and error. I went about it with a piece of cardboard and a ruler. I took measurements on the outside and inside distances from fitting to fitting, then transferred those distances to a piece of cardboard using a scrap piece of tubing and traced 90 degree bends. I always left extra on the ends because I could cut the ends to match the depth of most components.

lol why would you pair a Ryzen 9 with an RTX2080? Not sure those would play nicely together. Otherwise, nice build, Great job. : )

2080Ti and 3900x were both best in slot for what I was looking for and they have so far worked brilliantly together.
