I just built this PC after coming from a 7700k with a Palit 1080 ti FE. Since building the "Money Maker" in my list of completed builds, my interest in building PC's has been growing rapidly. Since then, I've built 3 systems for a few friends and have finally gotten interested in learning custom cooling.
With the release of the Threadripper, I found that it would be a perfect avenue to collaborate with one of the more popular modders here in the Philippines and make my first custom loop. Also, I felt that it would be a perfect time to own my first high end desktop on a brand new chipset, even if I may not take full advantage of the power my system has. Some parts included in this build are a rehash of the previous, while some are acquisitions I've made since.
I chose the ROG Zenith because of how premium the ROG line looks and feels. The board is beautiful and the accent lights really caught my eye. It was time that I owned an ASUS Aura compatible board because their RGB software integrates very well with a lot of other things. I used an Aorus board and had to wait so long until the bugs were ironed out with Trident Z RGBs.
I chose the Poseidon for the beautiful shroud and of course, the integrated water block. The infinity mirror is really nice as well.
What better way to take advantage of my new Aura sync board than to use the really cool-looking Team Night Hawk RGBs. They're only controllable with Aura, as opposed to the TridentZ's. My build will also be "dragon" themed so the agressive shape will go perfectly with that.
The result is a molten-hot looking PC that packs a lot of punch and runs pretty cool. Even more so when we're done with the custom loop hopefully by October.
EDIT: I'm still waiting for the case, CPU block and res. I'll repost when the build with the loop is finally done!
EDIT 2: Holy Crap thanks for the feature!! Just in time for the Game of Thrones Season finale! DRACARYS!!!!
