Description

I've been slowly replacing all my parts over the past few months. The goal was to get the best 21:9 gaming experience possible with a quiet, clean black/white themed setup. Most of the build is pretty straight forward but I ended up doing some custom work.

I knew that the 1080ti was going to be my best option when I started hearing rumors about its release so I started doing research on how I could get it watercooled with an AIO on day one. I found a few people online that had modded the EVGA hybrid kit to fit the Titan XP so I took a risk in picking one up during a sale and making the same cuts to the baseplate. My assumption that it would fit paid off when I saw EKWB confirm that their Titan XP blocks would be compatible with the 1080ti. Release day came, my card got delivered, and after some testing and slight adjustments to my cuts, it fit perfectly. I also knew that I wanted to have the card match my theme so I picked up some matte white vinyl and wrapped some parts on the hybrid shroud as well as the backplate. With the new cooling setup I was able to overclock the card with +165 core, and +450 memory. Under load my temps haven't passed the high 60's.

My 7700k isn't hitting as high of an overclock as many have been getting but I was able to get it to 4.7 without going over 85C during stress tests. I might delid eventually but I really don't see a need for more performance right now.

Overall I can finally say that i'm happy with the setup and plan on leaving it this way for awhile.

Wow, some setup you got there. All top of the line parts and very clean build. What kind of frame rates are you getting with the 1080ti and that Predator monitor?

EpikMark0123 1 Build 7 points 18 months ago

... over 9000?

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Thanks! So far I can max out every game i've tried and still hit at least high 90's.

EchoTorrent 2 points 11 months ago

Do you have a link to your desk, or at least where you got it?

PhilToDay 1 point 10 months ago

It's a combination of an Ikea tabletop and 2 alex drawers.

Curtis0208 1 point 18 months ago

I think it would look cool if you wrapped the tubes in white electrical tape. This looks great though. +1

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

What about the tubes wrapped in some white anti-kink coils.

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

I've seen a lot of people do this but I think it looks cleaner as is.

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Hmm I might consider it but i'm happy with the white/black balance right now.

xTwistts 1 point 18 months ago

Welp, here's the next featured build.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Hope so!

Noob here, how do I get a black and white 1080 ti? Is it hybrid kit?

Is it this? https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-Hybrid-Waterblock-Cooler-400-HY-5188-B1/dp/B01IPVQUSG

All I'm hoping is the Titan lowers to 800$

ipond317 3 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

This is gorgeous. I love a great black/white theme. My ASUS 1080 Ti FE delivers this coming Monday. Your build has inspired me to look at the EVGA Hybrid Cooler for Founders Edition cards. Beautifully well done!

+1

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Thanks!

mad3on 1 point 18 months ago

Many reviews said that the FE 1080Ti was running really hot when at max load, which you might reach with the X34 (I don't know, never had enough cash to run a 4k setup) . Is this true? Could you maybe post temps?

Can I read? Who knows. Am I stupid? Probably.

Holy ****! This build is absolutely beautiful! This computer is not only a beast, but it seems as if you spent hours making it look this way.

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Ha thanks! It definitely took some time to get it perfect.

Misterace 1 point 18 months ago

Nice build dudes love the color scheme LOTS of white. Simple. Clean. Perfect.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Thanks!

Razorwing02 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

So. Clean.

Nice mod, +1 for that, and +1 more for excellent cable management

Max_Stone 1 point 18 months ago

You seem to know how to balance colours very well. How would one do a white/ red build because I have literally found none apart from "red mist" but I am not going to water cool my build.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Hmm good question, i'd really have to plan it out for awhile.

hesif 1 point 18 months ago

wow, the tidiness is just mesmerizing. Love it +1

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Testing12 1 point 18 months ago

Great job on this build! Could you do a few more pics? Maybe showing some detailed shots of the video card wrap as well as the backplate. Also, a shot or 2 of the system looking straight into the case (instead of at the angle you have already shown). Thanks...

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Ty! I'll try to get some more pictures later today.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Just added a few more pictures.

Testing12 1 point 18 months ago

Very cool, thanks! I want to put together a build much like you've done here and I appreciate a look at your creation.

pedersays 1 point 18 months ago

dude this build man. so beautiful. what two fans are you using for your nzxt cpu cooler? the stock ones?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Yep just the stock.

Grablty 1 point 18 months ago

Wouw man really clean and beatiful ! Well done, but 1080Ti is 899$ why this expensive like that ?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

So I actually got the FE straight from Nvidia but PCPartPicker doesn't list it yet so I just added the EVGA FE for now.

FXcheerios69 1 point 18 months ago

Awesome build. Is it possible to turn off the motherboard light but leave all the other lights such as fans and graphics card on?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Thanks! Are you referring to the light by the IO?

FXcheerios69 1 point 18 months ago

Ya. The one on the mobo right behind the rear fan.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Yep I can. The mobo light is controlled by Asus Aura, and the fans/case/CPU AIO is controlled by NZXT CAM.

kirasagi 1 point 18 months ago

Hi, I'm looking to build the same cooling setup (NZXT x52 front and Hybrid as back exhaust). I'm not sure if you're doing it on purpose but is there a better way to arrange the Hybrid radiator tubing so the Hybrid EVGA logo can be seen clearly? Planning to do this on an ITX build. Thanks!

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Just changed up how I routed the tubes from the card. New pictures added if you're interested.

Morkus 1 point 18 months ago

Is the NZXT Hue+ required to get the RGB fans working?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Yes

adavis59 1 point 18 months ago

Hi, which LED's are you using?

Excellent build by the way!

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Inside the PC is a Hue+, behind the desk is Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus.

Why are there two smaller SSDs as opposed to one larger one?

gordonhatcher 1 point 17 months ago

ASTHETIC

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

The 850 is carried over from my previous build.

gordonhatcher 1 point 17 months ago

Is That a Founders Edition???

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Ya it is.

gordonhatcher 1 point 17 months ago

Out of curiosity what % alcohol did you use on the card?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

91%

undeadshark 1 point 17 months ago

If only I had the money :( love the build though looks insanely good

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Thanks!

jin0425 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

I am new to PC-building. Is it possible to build a PC with all the exact same parts as your, except for the GPU replaced with NVidia GeForce 1080 Ti?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I'm actually using the one straight from Nvidia, they just don't have it listed on PCPP so I just used the Gigabyte as a placeholder. All of the FE cards are exactly the same anyway.

jin0425 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I see. Thanks for the reply!

skupanu 1 point 16 months ago

this is an insane build. saved for future reference

r2dcruz 1 point 16 months ago

First off your build is awesome. But side note, those posters are sick! Details on the poster?

jin0425 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Hi! Could you tell me what the orientations of your fans are (where you mounted and intake/outtake)? Thanks ;)

Mill5Kill5 1 point 15 months ago

Brilliant! I am working on buying pieces of a similar build (Mostly white in an s340 Elite) and it was really nice to see how beautiful yours turned out. Great work!

jnicho1911 1 point 14 months ago

Hey mate, i've literally bought the exact same components as you for my new build all minus the water cooler for the GPU. I'm wondering, did you only use two Aer fans? i can only see two pictured? How are you finding the rig so far?

Atenev 1 point 14 months ago

Hey, I have almost the same setup as you do. I have a Corsair H80i and I was planning to set it up as exhaust on top with the EVGA as rear exhaust with two front intakes, but I couldn't fit neither of their radiators on top because of the Asus Maximus Code armor. I want to switch my CPU Cooler and I was thinking to buy the same one as yours. I was just wondering, what's your fan setup? And is your Kraken set as intake or exhaust?

Goosetony 1 point 12 months ago

mate, you should go on setup wars on techsource, by the way, plz change the chair

NathanCarley 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Nice Build! Very Clean.

Express. 1 point 11 months ago

Build looks clean as a whistle. I absolutely love it! +1

yagyare 1 point 11 months ago

VERY clean build... congrats!

KingRat 1 point 10 months ago

Would your M.2 drive perform better in the other slot or is there a difference? I'm about to purchase one and am unsure if it truly matters which slot the M.2 drive goes.

Rangers4itall 1 point 9 months ago

The only thing I worry about is the air flow going to the radiator in this case since it is mostly blocked off. Tell me if the temps are good. Other then that beautiful build and great cable management.

ZinxOfficial 1 point 9 months ago

How is your Kraken X62 holdin up? I see a lot of people with broken pumps after 5-6 months of use.

green112012 1 point 9 months ago

Awesome build! how are your fans pointed for everything? I've been wanting to water cool my gpu but haven't been able to find much info on how fans were laid out. Are both fans with aios pulling air in and the top one acting as the only exhaust?

HappyPanda726 1 point 9 months ago

damn that's one clean build papa

w2ck 1 point 8 months ago

Black and White, My favorite.

Regfish 1 point 7 months ago

Great build !

PS Where did you get the desk from?

Noob_builder23 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

How did you order those custom white/black hombre cables? They look sexy af. (I know from cable mod but how?)

elliottm24 1 point 7 months ago

nice build bro

elliottm24 1 point 7 months ago

what kkeyboard do u have and where did you get the white keys from

Mazen2004 1 point 6 months ago

nice setup you should submit it to techsource

AlexDMV 1 point 6 months ago

Hey man, I have a question about the kraken x62. I am planning on using corsair ll fans, but I don’t want to replace the fans on the kraken x62, as that would cost me like 80 dollars. Would it be okay if I kept the default fans on the kraken? Or do you recommend me buying the ll fans to put on the radiator. I don’t have a glass front panel so it’s not an issue of asthetics, I’m more concerned about performance.

Thadeus_22 1 point 6 months ago

Where did you get your posters?!

Riotz 1 point 4 months ago

great build bro

Dafull 1 point 3 months ago

Did u use NZXT USB Hub?? or an internal USB hub??

Google Home Pod looks out of place, other than that I look nice.

hurtgenerik 1 point 8 days ago

Hey what finish did you use for the surface of your desk? I was looking into that tabletop from ikea and it recommends that you use a finish for it.

IgniteRainbows 1 point 7 days ago

Nice build dude, Gonna use some inspiratiuon if you dont mind

aliensbrah 1 Build 0 points 18 months ago

Edit: Nevermind, just saw your post above....

I'm strongly considering doing this desk setup now. It's so sleek and simple but so much room for stuff.

Hey guy, this looks fantastic. Had a question regarding the desk.

Is that an Ikea type desk build or did you do it custom?
