Description

First build in over 4 years so i was more than comfortable going a little overkill on a few parts. Mostly used for Gaming. Uses Cablemod Pro cables which are not mentioned on the part list but i think need an honourable mention. The fans are actually the thermaltake riing SYNC edition, which dont seem to be very common.

Purchased and assembled in October 2018

Always upgrading and updating parts. If you have suggestions, please let me know

did you use a 8pin + 6+2pin or just 8pin + 6 pin for that gpu?

Im using an 8pin and a 6 pin for this one. The 2 other holes next the the 6 pin are blacked out. I assume they are only open on the TI models for increased draw

i see, still not sure if i should use a 6+2 pin or just a 6 pin for my msi gtx 1080. still new to custom sleeves, i notice that in my psu the 6 pin are for molex/sata/peripherals so if i use a single 6pin and put it on the peripherals will that works? or i should use the 6+2 and let the +2 hanging around?

Link or name to your psu and your gpu please.

At the psu you must not change the slot. It wouldn't work because poka yoke and different voltage output.

The pin layout only changes at the gpu side of the cables the layout at the psu stays the exact same :)

Thanks. :)

The GPU always will be powered with the 8pin at the CPU/PCI-E slots on the PSU. The 6+2(which can hang around) aswell the 8 is used on the GPU. Which is which is written on it, at least on the psu side. wether you are using a 6+2 & 8 pin layout or 6 & 8 cables won't matter beside looks. They both will have the 8pin psu connector on there other side. :) Even if you leave the 2pin hanging around, everything work as expected, it doesn't change anything on the electricity side.

how is the case? i am thinking of buying that one or the black version.

I would 100% recommend this case to anyone. It looks immaculate, has a great quality to it and heaps of space for cable management in the back.

The only negative i can say is there arent enough holes for cables where the PSU shroud meets the bottom of the motherboard and it makes the ugly front IO, USB's and audio ports a little obvious.

Where are you able to purchase those white extension cables at? Im going with a white/black build so I want white cables to contrast the black

Im in Australia so i bought them from and Aussie provider PC Case Gear, however cablemod have a global store that will ship anywhere for $20. From what i could see cablemod had higher prices though so id suggest to shop around for a 3rd party supplier.

They are also not extensions, they are a full cable replacement kit designed specifically for my PSU. Just be sure you're getting the right ones if you go down the same road. These are the Pro series which are very stiff and hold their shape really well and have the combs pre-installed. but ive heard great things about the standard ones too. Hope this helps

So I’ve just finished buying all the parts, identical to the setup that you have made. I’ve never built a PC a day in my life, bought many yes, but never built, been watching build guides for days now, since I have the same set up as you, are there any tips or suggestions you could give me on some of the harder parts while building this?

Beautiful build. I'm almost building one but planning on using MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 2080 card. The length of this card is ~ 327mm. If I install CPU cooler on top and just have two fans in the front, would the graphics card fit? or it'll be too tight and congested?

I’ve got parts so far very similar to your build but at the moment I’m torn on the cooler. I too will purchase an x52 Kraken and want to replace the stock fans. I was wondering if you could give me some guidance on this. I would like to have the fans on the x52 as RGB as well and I thought about replacing them with NZXT AER 120mm RGB’s but my other 3 fans are the Corsair HD series, and so I wasn’t sure if I would be able to control the RGB AER on the X52, so I decided to just go with ML 120 fans. Any thoughts or suggestion?

My mobo is the Asus Maximus X Hero

where did you get your AIO white mesh covers and cables? Cablemods?

Was about to call you a copier off of my similar build,but it looks like I'm the one who built my new rig second. (Guess we both have great taste)

How did the AIO sleeving kit work for you? I bought them but they're absolute ****, unless I got a dud. I decided to ditch them and wrap the AIO sleeves around the block instead, but was kinda hoping to make the cables look more like yours.

Love the white cable sleeves, great choice.
