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 6 points 8 months ago

... over 9000?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 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 1 month ago

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

Curtis0208 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

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

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

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

xTwistts 1 point 8 months ago

Welp, here's the next featured build.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Hope so!

Dang what a powerful and beautiful setup

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks!

fo0ob 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

Just added some more info to the description.

Lyrix 1 point 8 months ago

wow! 1+! this is an amazing setup and build! looks great! WOW! so clean and nice!

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks!

UnityComp 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Your setup looks PRISTINE. I am getting a 1080ti from EVGA's Step Up Program by trading in my 1080 FTW Hybrid, and can swap them for the cost of shipping alone as Amazon had that listed at $699.99. I also had plans to convert it to a Hybrid.. My plan was Gamer's Nexus-style haha... But I'm thrilled to see the non-FTW Hybrid-kit works for Founder's Edition PCB's and not just the EVGA Blower one, which was my concern and was planning on disassembling my older FTW 1080 Hybrid to borrow that CLC.. Glad I know better now!

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Here's some more info of the cuts you will need to make on the baseplate: https://shantanujoshi.github.io/titanxp-watercooling/

UnityComp 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Did you do that in your hybird assembly?

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Ya, you have to or the baseplate will not fit.

XFacility 1 point 8 months ago

This is the definition of clean and tidy xD +rep

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

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

ipond317 3 Builds 1 point 8 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 8 months ago

Thanks!

mad3on 1 point 8 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?

mad3on 1 point 8 months ago

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

coopjc 1 point 8 months ago

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.

+1

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

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

Misterace 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks!

Razorwing02 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

So. Clean.

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

enter setup wars

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Ty!

Connor_The_Gamer 1 point 8 months ago

Hold up. Is that a Google Home? Nice going, anyways great build. Super clean cable management.

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

It is, I use it for light/harmony hub control.

Max_Stone 1 point 8 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 8 months ago

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

hesif 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

Ty!

Testing12 1 point 8 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 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Just added a few more pictures.

Testing12 1 point 8 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 8 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 8 months ago

Yep just the stock.

Grablty 1 point 8 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 8 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 8 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 8 months ago

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

FXcheerios69 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 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 8 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 6 months ago

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

Morkus 1 point 8 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Yes

adavis59 1 point 8 months ago

Hi, which LED's are you using?

Excellent build by the way!

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

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

BananaLaffyTaffy 1 point 7 months ago

Man this is the kind of stuff I love seeing here, especially with the custom work to give it a little personality

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Chekonjak 1 point 7 months ago

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

gordonhatcher 1 point 7 months ago

ASTHETIC

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

The 850 is carried over from my previous build.

gordonhatcher 1 point 7 months ago

Is That a Founders Edition???

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Ya it is.

gordonhatcher 1 point 7 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

91%

undeadshark 1 point 7 months ago

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

czonin submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks!

jin0425 1 Build 1 point 6 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 6 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 6 months ago

I see. Thanks for the reply!

skupanu 1 point 6 months ago

this is an insane build. saved for future reference

r2dcruz 1 point 6 months ago

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

xeionx 1 point 6 months ago

absolutely gorgeous i have a soft spot for white builds

Viveycore 1 point 6 months ago

The build blends into the wall! Up Arrow thingy just for that!

Toxichmasta11 1 point 6 months ago

Beautiful Build. Really clean :D

SgtMuff 1 point 5 months ago

Best black n white build I've seen

adventureguy 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

So gorgeous my boi.

jin0425 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

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

Mill5Kill5 1 point 5 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 4 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 4 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 2 months ago

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

NathanCarley 1 point 1 month ago

Nice Build! Very Clean.

Express. 1 point 1 month ago

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

yagyare 1 point 1 month ago

VERY clean build... congrats!

KingRat 1 point 19 days 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.

aliensbrah 1 Build 0 points 8 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?

Thanks! It's a 74" Hammarp countertop and 2 Alex drawers from Ikea.
