Description

Named after one of my favourite Pokemon. After the video card in my laptop fried i decided to go all out and buy a "top of the line" PC. I have just completed a degree in 3D animation, so i needed a good computer that can crank through renders in a heartbeat.

This was my first PC build. I came across a lot of problems during this build. the 420mm rad was to long and had clearance issues, the fittings were to large so i couldn't put the fans in push which would have fixed the clearance issues. i had to drill holes in my case to attach the reservoir and top radiator. it ended up taking me three days to finish because i was missing some fittings. I still need to purchase an sli bridge for maximum bling.

anyway it runs well and i'm happy with it so far!!! i overclocked it to 4.5GHz @1.270 (haven't pushed further) and got 110 offset over the already OC graphics cards. for some reason i cant overclock any further on either cpu or gpu. if i add any memory oc it crashes when benchmarking.

What's wrong with pink? I've never seen a factory pink gpu before. Be proud of it and own it! Just be like "Yea it's pink, so what? It can kick your 970's a$$ since it's a 980 ti"

If you could get a picture of that swagalicious pink GPU, that would be amazing. For those last three pictures, it looks like you put a sepia filter on your camera to try to hide that pink colour! XD

At first I thought the name was quagmire, the word and the Family Guy character, not quagsire, the Pokémon.....Nice build, though.

What problems did you have trying to mount the radiator up top? According to the documentation it should fit (just) but I haven't found anyone who has actually put an H100i V2 in the top of a Define R5.

It was more about me trying to put the fans in and dropping screws everywhere. I had the in pull mode and it was difficult to put the screws through the fans into the radiator.

I added some clearer pics. The pink graphics card is more rose gold but i am having trouble capturing it on my phone. It is starting to grow on me though.
