Description

This build is a modification of my original x99 5960x build in a white Enthoo primo. The case is a bit outdated for these days so I gutted it and painted it. Made some custom panels, upgraded the hardware and while it's mostly done it's got a few finishing touches to be added and will be updated in the next couple weeks.

I chose my old primo as I feel everyone has the same 4 cases these days. In fact I am guilty of it as well as I did a 1800x build in an TG evolv. I was using it as a primary system but after looking at it for a month and seeing the 100s of other evolv builds it just got so boring to have something everyone else had. With the new HEDT line up coming out for Intel and AMD I was originally going to go Intel and I did buy a 7900x and well that setup left me rather quickly as TR is just a better offering for my purposes. I had considered getting a caselabs case but once again it's on the list of overused cases imo. Phanteks cases these days aren't made as well as they use to be and the primo is an example of quality that isn't there at phanteks these days. So while it's not glass and it's not flashy as newer cases that are out, with some tlc it's still an amazing case. So I decided to just make it my own rather than do something very generic.

These touches are

1) addressing some of the paint issues on minor areas. Need a respray of some areas that were masked off since they would not be exposed ended up being exposed lol.

2) Waiting on 2 more 960 evos and EK heatsinks for them before they are added in.

This build is used for vm labs and some light gaming.

So to answer any questions about rigidity, the case is more stable now than it was stock. Due to the rad in the front and the screwed in back panel. Not a huge RGB fan so I just stick to single colors without all the rainbows flashing around. Some may ask why I have two threadripper blocks. I didn't know if I wanted to go with clear or black acetal so I bought both. I ended up going black for the cpu loop and plexi for the gpu loop for the most part. Whenever the bitspower monoblock drops it will be added.

Walter H. White...This thing is beautiful and so disgustingly overkill - which is why I LOVE IT. +100

Side note: what the heck do you do to utilize this? Serious question.

Thanks. I acutally have 128gb of ram but I can't seem to run them right now past 2933 in a 8 stick config. My work involves a lot of server virtualization for work so the build helps me do some testing. I live in an apt in nyc so a server rack ain't happening and I am not looking to stack nucs on the table so lol.

That's awesome! With less real estate (no rack) might as well make a computer to beat them all. Hope you enjoy! I sure do haha

Awesome build! Im interested on what type of small lcd screen you used? :) i know there are a lot out there...

It's a hdmi 7inch screen for use mainly with rasperry pi. You can find it on amazon. There a few sellers but it's the same product pretty much.

To add to this I would like to ask what program you're running on the pi to monitor it.

  • 31 months ago

It's connected directly to the PC not running off a pi, just the cable is routed inside the backside of the case then out of the case to the gpu.

Ohh. Sorry for my noobness. So it is simply an HDMI that your gpu recognizes as a second monitor and from there you run hardware monitor or something? Ive been wanting something like this for awhile.

what type of screen are you using to monitor your temps? 5" screen or 10" because i might do the same but might use it to monitor flow/temp

is that a custom acryllic sheet in the back or metal? like, im thinking about getting this or the 900d for my dream build when i get some more money. But the drive bays in both are annoying looking, i like what you did. Did you just cut out the drive bays and make your own backdrop?

It's painted acrylic sheet. I wanted to do metal but didn't have the means to do so. apartment living loll. I removed the drive bays and such yes, then cut acrylic pieces to make the back and bottom.
