I've always wanted a pc that just demolishes everything I use it for and when I saw the threadripper announcement I knew that this is what I had been waiting for.

For the most part the build went rather smoothly only a few hiccups when it came to the watercooling and just getting the damn thing to boot the first time but after I ironed out the kinks it's been smooth sailing.

I haven't used the computer for long enough to really have any complaints about performance or oddities but I can tell you that building on the thermaltake core p7 was a pain in the neck when it came to getting everything to fit properly. For starters it seems as though they really want you to only use their parts when it comes to building on it I had to drill holes to mount the pumps to the plate and then drill holes to mount the plate more securely to the frame as the screws they sent with it didn't cut it and caused a bit of droop I went to a 10-24 by 3/4 screw and used a jam nut on the back to firmly attach the plate. Another grip would be that there was no way to mount the powersupply to the front of the case like the stock drawings show this might just be because of the model of my powersupply but I already had it from another build and the prices for 1000w+ psus is just ridiculous. Other than that it wasn't too bad and assembly went rather smoothly minus the modifications.

This is only the fourth computer I've ever built and I wanted it to be one that lasts a while, If you have any questions or want any help when it comes to watercooling I've done a bit of research and can tell you the parts you're gonna want to save you the headaches I had to face.

I've got some changes to make and a couple more parts to add in the near future and i'll be sure to update it when I get them in.

Got around to overclocking and got the cpu to 4ghz stable and managed a 150mhz core and 350mhz memory overclock on the graphics card.

Update 1/4/2018 I suppose I should of done this earlier but I changed the case and some of the parts that I used in this build I'll likely just submit another completed build If I ever get around to it I changed the case to The Tower 900 from thermaltake as It's easier to move around and looks better imo. I'm also going to be changing the cpu waterblock to something that preforms better as the ek block has not been the best preformer.

Your monitor's resolution is too high for this build, it should be 1920x1080...

I hope you're joking, he has a 1080 ti!

LeMMingSlayeR 22 Builds 8 points 17 months ago

... and a 1920x.

did they oc easily?

Always a good choice with AORUS! Not that I am bias towards AORUS. Looking good! +1

Eagle355 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Wow. I want to do a build with a custom watercooling loop but cost and problems like what you said are causing me to look elsewhere for cooling ideas. Great build! That RGB lighting is AMAZING.

X47man 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Those are some interesting bends. Nice build

Amazing build! I love the water cooling setup. Check out my AMD build -> https://pcpartpicker.com/b/kY9J7P my next one will consist of a custom loop.

Nice set! Im building one in a X399 Aorus too, and I'm wondering if it's necesary to fill both 8 pin and 4 pin cpu connectors? Wouldn't it be enough with the 8 pin one?

I don't check pcpartpicker very often so sorry for the late reply, I'm pretty sure you need both in there since it's a 180w tdp. also the socket latch is a bit finicky I've seen a lot of people have trouble with it but mine went in just fine so hopefully that's all worked out

What sort of performance are you seeing for gaming? I am thinking of building a similar PC with a 1920x and a 1080ti for 1440p gaming and content creation, but I can't find any benchmarks for this particular config. I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know your experience thus far.

Overall It's fairly smooth I don't have much trouble playing games, But I wouldn't say It's perfect having something with faster single thread performance would be a lot better at gaming than this. However when it comes to gaming and doing a lot of other Things at the same time I'm happy with how it preforms. I've done a couple of benchmarks before I'll post the scores. https://benchmark.unigine.com/results/rid_34f3e2228b2d4e028fc07b7ff3427af1 https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14216255 https://www.3dmark.com/spy/2790632

Really It just depends on the settings you want to play on, I haven't had any problem getting over 60fps with max settings on any title at 1440p with or without overclocking

You don't need a bigger desk, you need a desk PC ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
