Description

Alright where to start... The end game of this build is to have 3 gpus and a top of the line AMD or intel cpu, But i must take steps to get there. Before anyone calls me out on it I know it has a overkill psu but i am hoping to fully utilize it at some point. The origin of that psu started when i saw it and i had high hopes of making the whole build a "classified" branded build, but sadly i could not afford everything so i got it and later i would add the other parts (it was my first time building so i was wastefull). The psu is meant to go with a dual socket board made by evga also named "classified". Evga then discontinued both of these products and i was stuck with it and my bad decisions, but the power supply is probably one of the most beautiful ones on the market. Not one to give up i then threw together a system with a corsair air 540 and thus my first build was born. I currently have a gtx 780 6gb with a water block on it and i'm looking to add more later on down the road. The reason why I haven't finished is because i am waiting for some soft tube to put in a couple areas. This build is going to be used for heavy gaming when done as well as hopefully eye candy. I also am programming so i use it for that. Building this computer has been difficult especially since i just learned about this web site. If i knew about this site i would definitely have had a cheaper buying experience! most of these products were purchased without this website so i did spend more than is indicated.

THESE PARTS ARE OLD I KNOW THAT

Before anyone asks why the gpu the reason is the 780 i got was before the specs and release of the 980 and 970. Later i most likely will switch to the 980 8gb version. I will add multiple cards i just don't have the money to now. I will be overclocking just i want to take a break to enjoy this until i have to work on it again. i would recommend the monsoon hardlock fittings for anyone who is paranoid of leaks in there builds. the fitting were easy and i found that the only leaks that came up were the fittings that were the normal monsoon fittings. the tube bending process was rough and i definitely need to go back and fix some of it i might even switch all of the bends to hardlock fittings and 90 degree fittings. i did not show the back on purpose because the cables are everywhere but it will be easy to fix with some time and alot of cable ties. i hope you guys and gals enjoy it like i have!!!

I look forward to seeing the comments to see how i can improve! Thanks!

Things to come in the future:

  • 2 more gpus

  • AMD 9590 cpu??? or x99 total upgrade

  • 1 more eloop fan lol

  • new mobo?

also i might be making a evga hadron hydro build in the winter/summer

Awesome build. However, i'm honestly confused why you got an FX-8350 on a $4000 budget build. You would have done much better with an i7-4790k, or if you bought the parts before then, even an i7-4770k. If you're an AMD fanboy, you should dump the ~$230 for a 9590. Even with the custom loop, 5 Ghz can be near impossible on a poorly binned 8350. The higher clocks / volt of the 9590 would be more beneficial than the custom loop. It's a crazy stunning and powerful build, I just feel like you could have done better with your budget.

I got this cpu when it was the best of the best and there were ideas of the 9590. this build started at a 2000 dollar budget and a time when intel was way too expensive compared to amd. the only other cpu choices were the 3770k and extreme edition. Also when i got the cpu it was 250 dollars and not what it is now. otherwise you have a great point. this past summer i worked to get all of the liquid cooling stuff and a new graphics card to overclock. i did have a 770 but the pcb was not reference. also there was alot of trouble with the bottom radiator and that took a lot to sort out. yes there could have been a better option back then too but what happened happened. i'm satisfied for now and looking for a smaller more portable sized comp.

Pretty. I love the look of Eloops and I'm debating throwing a couple in mine. I'd love to see a X99 and 980 8gb setup with all that thermal capacity.

i am a real "fan" of these they are silent!. they also come with extensions and dampeners. the only thing i wish NB made was 140mm eloops!

just buy the parts and then water cool later. it leaves time for you to enjoy it and then build it again and enjoy it even more!

Add 2 more 780s and you may just make a fortune in Bitcoin..

I recommend you go with a dual monitor setup, maybe a 2560x1440p on the side. I suggest your next cpu upgrade to be a x99 mobo with the i7 5960x or 5930k. Then for the gpu the r9 390x or r9 395x2 should be great as it will have even lower power consumption, newer technology, and better performance.

it is from preformancepcs.com and it is the swiftech apolgee xl. they have tons of custom options you can even have your own made!
