Description

Let's keep this brief and snappy! ;)

Hay guys, this is my first water cooled build which I built after my 3 year old pc decided to flop on me. So I decided to build something ambitious, beautiful, lean, which will accommodate gaming and my high load graphic rendering work.

As I have built this PC recently, I haven't had the chance to fully push it to it's limits, however at the moment I can say that I am impressed with; - How quiet the computer is on a whole, I get minimum noise from the XSPC pump on setting 3 - The noticeable improvement in data transferring speeds from the M.2 SSD - Forget the titan, go for the 980 ti, will satisfy you for years to come! no tearing, quiet and amazing performance - Ability to control fan speeds for efficiency - Extremely powerful cpu with plenty of room for oc'ing, also makes rendering a lot less time consuming! - High end motherboard with an array of features introduced into x99 - The quality and ease of dis-assembly of the Enthoo Luxe Case - Ease of cable management in space provided, although more space would be perfect

Problems I've encountered and things that could be improved; - Whilst opening up the top panel of the case, an LED wire came out and I had to solder it back for it to work. Awkwardly placed/fixed. - Antec PSU has some thick wires! Modular psu would have been more efficient for space. - Love my dual Samsung led monitors but will be investing into a curved, wide screen g-sync monitor in future. - Cable management can always be improved haha

Overall I am super happy with the aesthetics, hardware and functioning of my Kolaveri (Definition of Kolaveri: Murderous Rage)

Looking forward to Kolaveri 2.0!

Take Care Guys! <3

That GPU has some SERIOUS bend going on, you really might want to find a way to support it or it will cause problems over time.

Other than that, awesome build. +1

So all of those comments beneath mine are horrible ideas. Do what professional over-clockers with Galax Hof's, inno3d, and Zotac cards do: buy a support. Lots of supports out there from kick-stands that have pneumatic pressure to simpler, more sleep PCIE support arms. For your build, any sort of stand would look tacky. I recommend this support arm. You can take some of that Pastel stuff you were using and make custom designs. The logo on it comes off with some nail polish remover and a razor blade/

Thank you :) x

The invisible way to do it is to grab some fishing line, tie it to some part at the top of your case(usually a hole in the top next to the fan mounts) and then make a loop on the other end. Put the power connector corner of the GPU into that loop, and it should lift that side up.

Another thing I've seen people do is buy dedicated supports for it. The most interesting one I've seen is a Goku action figure holding his hands up to charge a spirit ball, but instead of a spirit ball he's holding up the graphics card. The figure was pretty big, and next to the PSU.

I like the LEGO idea. A stack of 4x4 bricks and plates should be adjustable to within an acceptable range. How rigid is the tubing? If it's got some structure to it, maybe you could shorten the run between CPU and GPU, and add a vertical segment between the GPU and elbow to use the PSU housing as support.

A hardware might have some scrap acrylic. A strip of a thick-ish sheet would be enough support, particularly if you double up. Cut a slot for the PCB to rest in. It may even be black if you're very, very lucky.

You should send the pics of this build to Alienware with note that says "This is what a $2500 system should look like, not the crap you're selling!"

Great job. +1

That is one nice *** build. Good Job. But the shelf supporting it, yea i would be kinda worried. Just saying.

  • 46 months ago

Thank you! Don't worry about the shelf, there's extra support from the brackets and I have drilled screws from the support wood into my shelf of drawers to keep it steady :)

Hai, I found it difficult finding places that did cable sleeving for cheap in the UK, I would deffo recommend DIY cable sleeving, otherwise somewhere such as shakmods have good quality sleeving :)

  • 46 months ago

Yes, I did as well. I eventually decided to spend the extra money for custom cable extensions, on both of the builds I posted here.

Eyy, great choice in desktop speakers there, I've got the same ones myself! Also, boy do I envy that DxRacer chair of yours, I wish they still made them for my size in green... ;-;

Nice build overall though; the combination of yellow and green isn't seen often around these parts, especially when those colors just by themselves are already rare. Good use of the nearby dresser for the headphone rack as well, although even if it is reinforced as you say, I still can't help picturing that PC falling off. Shivers

+1 for green, can't get enough of it. :P

Thank you for your kind words, PC forever standing not falling hehe :)

Hai, I did a bit of DIY on my old desk; took off the drawers, cleaned it up then used carbon fiber to cover the wood :)

Worth it :)

Neat build. Scary face ;-).

Card sag? Get creative! Make a support that matches your theme. Shoot you can be redneck as hell and cut a piece of a dvd or cd and wedge it below the card into the motherboard at the sata connections. I did this for my daughter's pc to keep the video card from sagging. It's held up for 2 about two years now with no issues, and no one sees it even if I point it out.

I'd you can stand my horrible and sometimes sidwhat's pictures see "Ellie's Lavender Lady" in my builds https://pcpartpicker.com/b/TxK8TW picture 20 of 23. See the shiny support wedged between the tan and black sata ports?

If you can change the LED on the edges of your case to yellow it would be fix my OCD, thanks! I'm digging the green and yellow theme.

I'm interested in the story behind that window panel for the Luxe, well done doing one, I did the same. There's nothing in your description about it.

How does the frame hold up with the panel you removed?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

Hello :)

I used perspex at 2mm thick I measured the WxL that I needed and then cut it to size, followed by marking and drilling 4 holes into the case and perspex and then fitted it using self tapping screws

A much cheaper and effective way compared to buying a custom glass panel for the Luxe, Deffo worth it ^

Thanks for that...I agree it's defo worth it.

Is the structure still sturdy after removing the panel for the drive bays?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

O f course :) Phanteks made it super easy to disassemble everything so you can customise how you wish, everything sturdy despite removing that part inside the case :)

Nice one, will give it a shot when I reconfigure my loop. Got a taller reservoir and pump bracket in my wishlist. Thanks for that ;)

Finally took the plunge, removing the panel. What do you think?

Hello! Serious buil, I like it. I have a question: where did you fit the HDD?

They would be on the back, behind the main board. My guess anyway.

The bending makes me cringe so badly. Girls should not be allowed near computer parts for this exact reason. Please for the sake of PC building, go back to Alienware
