Hi all, i'm WerewolfHamster :D

This has been my first build that i finished just in time before 2018. I'm gonna tell you my story.

I started to think about a new PC nearly two years ago but i had to deal with my past choices: an iMac for daily use and a PS4 to play. I was happy about the look my Apple device had, but i understood that it wasn't made for gaming.

During the last months i've studied tons of builds from this website, i've learned a lot watching youtube tech channel and during September 2017 finally did my decision: build a new beast, my first beast.

I started to buy some parts (Monitor, mouse and the keyboard) nearly in November 2017 then i bought all the remaining between Black Friday and Christmas. My bedroom for a week has been literally invaded by fabric boxes everywhere.

I built completely my LiMo by night between 30th and 31st of December 2017. Building inside this case was an absolute hell, so i started to rant against everything alive on the heart while my parents and my sister were nearly sleeping.

Now i can say that all the insane and unhealty effort i put into the buying process and the building process has been rewarded with my complete satisfaction when i saw for the first time my PC start without a nuclear explosion (probably because i had to pay wounded people and damages of my neighborhood).

Every single part works like a charm exception made for the case... it looks so damn good but trying to make a decent cable management seemed to be impossible (at the end i did it ahahah).

Actually i've tryed my LiMo with AC Origins, Fortnite, Overwatch and other games. No problems with performance: 1440p almost always at 60fps using highest details.

Just as powerful as it looks like.

I'm still waiting to put the HDD inside the pc cause i'm using it inside another pc that soon will be dismissed.

P.S if you need more picture or info about my build don't worry i'm here :D

Nice build! How is the monitor with this graphics card? Any stuttering or screan tearing?

Ty .^ Consider that this monitor doesn't have fancy features like high tier "gaming" ones, but colors and definition are really really satisfying. It looks good and works good with my 1070, I've never had stuttering, using V-Sync there's no tearing at all and games look smoother (without V-Sync sometimes tearing happens but is pretty normal). If you need a cheap 1440p/60Hz this is a good choice (there're also Asus and Dell monitors that have good quality panels but for a slightly higher price). Hope i've been useful :D

Nice build. On which mobo header did you plug the 3pin pump header pls?

  • 14 months ago

I plugged the pump on the CPU_OPT header near CPU_FAN, i adjusted it as a fan through the SIV software setting it at 100%.

I see, thanks .. but what did you mean by SIV? uefi's smart fan?

SIV is an official utility that let you control fans and temperatures. You can install it through the APP Center released by Gigabyte ;D

Are you using push pull method for the radiator?

No, air comes inside the case from the frontal radiator, It's pushed outside by the big fan on the top and by the little one on the back. Actually temperatures seems to be pretty good :)
