Description

I use my Personal Rig mainly for Gaming and photo and video editing. Sure these aren't the latest components I am using but hey, they are just fine for me. I am building PCs as a "hobby". I built this couple of months ago, but i just found this website so i'll upload all of my upcoming builds here so i can always come here and look at them :)

I should clean the dust from the PC, i know, and i will.

Sorry about my english, it's not my native language :)

Watercooling:

-120mm ekwb rad

-240mm ekwb rad

-7970 csq block

-Swiftech Apogee GTZ

-16/10 tubes?

-EK-DCP 4.0 pump+res combo

Nice build. Too often I see people complaining about the hardware for example not getting the "best bang for the buck" when they don't see actually how well the parts are assembled. For me it's the passion of building it and personal preference for the parts. For them it's just 4690K and GTX 970. I hate those people. Sorry just had to get this out of me :D

Sneakyfox_888 1 point 41 months ago

Is there much difference between the 2500k and 4690k? I'm in the process of picking my parts.

joelhowell 1 point 41 months ago

Personally I would go with a 4690k just because you shouldn't go back in time for builds especially to Sandy Bridge at this day and age.

Lol. 46 GHz.

Sorry :D

somawhite402 2 points 41 months ago

I think you might possibly have meant 4.6GHz on the CPU clock rate... XD

_Sanic_ 2 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

Anything is possible with a custom loop :D

haha I thought that same thing.

riomist 2 points 41 months ago

Just noticed it XD would have no problem playing minesweeper with such clock speed... XP

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

XD

joelhowell 2 points 41 months ago

46 Ghz! Dayum sun you got a fast PC :D

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Ikr :)

I really doubt the GPU needs liquid cooling. It does look cool though.

joelhowell 2 points 41 months ago

It will keep his build more silent than air cooling the GPU

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

Thanks, and yeah it doesnt need it but at least it is much more silent than with the original cooler :)

Ruthlesswill 1 Build 2 points 41 months ago

46 ghz man u must have with liquid nitrogen loop, dipped in a tank of liquid nitrogen in the bottom of the Antarctic Ocean.

Dude! That thing looks like a time machine... Awesome build

Nice build, but I'm curious about the loop and the temperatures, as I'd like to watercool my rig aswell and I'd like to get an idea of how many radiators do I need. Am I wrong or you are using a 240 + 140 or 120 maybe? Are you running the gpu at stock speeds? If so how are the temps on the gpu aswell?

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Updated watercooling stuff to the post :) Yes gpu is running at stock speeds, gpu max temp is around 46 celsius.

MightyAlFred 3 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Sweet! Although it seems weird that cpu max temp is around 60° when gpu is at 46° in the same loop :-/ am I missing something?

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

I dont know. The cpu is overclocked though.

riomist 1 point 41 months ago

2500 for the win! Yay! +1 Since you mentioned you do photo + video editing, I think its better to add an SSD as boot drive and to install some productivity apps. Also how's the gpu temps?

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Yup i should buy an SSD drive, and gpu max temp is around 46 degrees celsius.

Still rocking that Sandy Bridge chip! I honestly think that series of processors was the best work Intel ever did.

GoldMine 1 point 41 months ago

Water cooling a 7970? I'm not an AMD guy, but isn't that card not worth water cooling? I could be wrong xD

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

It is much quieter with watercooling than with the original fan.

GoldMine 1 point 41 months ago

I understand that part, I just didn't really understand if it was worth the hassle xD

pwelch234 -2 points 41 months ago

Should have used the water cool money on better components

Diox 1 Build 2 points 41 months ago

Better components

This is a performance monster for its price range.

The 2500k is still kicking and will for a couple more years, and the 7970 is still a performer.

I run an i3 2130 and a GTX 650, and see no need to upgrade. Not everyone needs a 4690k/4790k/6600k/6700k for just gaming, or a 970/980/980 ti. These builds are the underdogs- the ones that throw the most punches in value.

Please research before commenting something like that. OP is obviously very happy with this build, and a custom loop is his decision. At least structure your comment better instead of just that.

steps off soapbox

Sorry, but OP lovely build. I'll be buying a 2500k in the future and can't wait to overclock it! Sexy custom loop as well.

+1!

Omegapepper33 submitter 15 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

Thank you very much :)

pwelch234 1 point 41 months ago

It was just a suggestion obviously its not my build so it doesn't matter.Holy crap you just wasted your time making that long comment. I don't really care what he does with his build I was just offering what I would do.
