This is an update to a previous build I had (Welcome to Jamrock).
So, this was THE most challenging build I ever encountered. A lot of sweat and frustration went into this build but it all worked out for the best!
Issues I've encountered
-I can't even tell you the amount of tubing I personally went through. I almost have a plastic bag full of wasted petg tubing.
-Pump res combo placement was a very hard decision. I still not a fan of it's current placement (because I like to see the res filled up) but that was the only way I could everything in the case.
-The most frustrating part was when I was filling the res with distilled water with a funnel and the funnel wasn't seated correctly and overflowed a little and spilled on my mobo and both ram sticks.
-Some photos show different sleeved cables because the black, yellow and green 24 pin extension cable didn't fit on my psu 24 pin cable for some reason.
Based off the Jamaican flag. I really do consider pc building as art. What sticks out most to me (and really changes the dynamic of this build) is the EK coolant. I really can't stop staring at it!
This build is mainly for portable gaming and also using it as a WDS server. I've wanted a WDS for a while now since I seem to reimage my family's laptop a lot.
Seems to be working well so far. It seems like I have a rare mobo since it sold out on newegg within an hour. However, once ASUS comes out with a mini itx board for AMD, I'll be switching over to that.
Overclocking and Temps
I'm planning on overclocking as soon as I finish setting up the server and can functionally dual boot windows 10 and windows server 2012. as far as temps go, Idle: GPU 26 Degrees, CPU 50 Degrees. Full Load: GPU 40 Degrees, CPU 74 Degrees. Keep in mind that there is a 20 degree delta for the cpu because in the bios, the cpu sits around 25 to 30 degrees.
All in all, after 3 watercooled builds, I feel that this my best and most proudest build.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
No issues so far. I haven't overclocked yet but will do in the future.
Sexiest ram on the planet!
Very very fast. According to my bios, the temps runs around 44 degrees C.
Not a bad card at all, especially when you have a free sync monitor.
Very nice and roomy case in person. Really wish they had a matx version though.
10 year manufacturer warranty. 'Nuff said.
