Description

This is the 2nd edition of this computer. I upgraded to 2 GTX 1080s, a Caselabs Merlin SM8, Corsair RM1000x, a bunch more fans and a custom loop. I got the CPU to 4.4 GHz, Both 1080s to a stable 2115 MHz. Which is high enough to get #3 in Firestrike with this CPU and these GPUs. All in all the build went fine, besides 1 tube that I had to redo like 7 or 8 times lol.

Edit: Added more photos and pictures of the case

I've seen enough red an black builds in my days, But all of them seem to of gotten +ones from me, this was an amazing "dark" themed build.

Looks great! ... and is similar to my plans, expact I favour air cooling - anyway +1

Killer. Very clean work on the tubes! It rather have the workstation vibe than gaming pc. But a question, what do you plan to do with it?

At my viewpoint all parts looks like well picked, except the peripherals. I believe you could do far better with such budget. Another reminder, if you are into gaming, consider adding a dedicated sound card, it is the icing on the cake.

Edit: And another question, you are using very thick radiators. Are corsair AF140's are strong enough to push/pull air through it? What are your observations so far?

Thanks, I plan to just game with this computer maybe some streaming every once and a while. I know that my monitors aren't that good and I plan on upgrading those next, and with the thick rads I'm doing push/pull on both radiators and I think that helps with the airflow.

SSSIIICCCKKK!!! Though I find it weird that you have so low storage on this monster, just wondering.

1.5TB is all I really need, though I might be adding an M.2 later on.

OK, makes better sense now.

1.5TB is "low storage"?

I have one 256GB SSD in mine =)

What I mean is, it seems like low storage for how much he's spending. Like, he has a i7 6800k, 1080's in SLI, ect, and he's only got 1.5 TB of space. Just seemed weird to me.

Fair enough. In my mind 1TB is still this gargantuan amount of space that could never be used by one person. I forget that a lot of people run a 500GB+ SSD, then 3-4TB worth of HDD's. I've had a 1TB HDD for 6 years and only used like 40% of it.

This is a great build OP, should be featured.
The Pictures aren't much clear, so i must ask, is the water going from the pump to both GPU's and CPU, and then to the radiators?

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, the fluid goes from the pump/res combo -> GPUs -> CPU-> top radiator-> front radiator-> back into the pump/res combo.

  • 31 months ago

Isn't that "bad" for the cooling? i mean, the water gets warmed by the GPUs and the CPU doesn't get freshed up water.

If i understood watercooling right, shouldn't it be like Pump/res > GPUs > radiator > cpu > radiator > pump/res?

  • 31 months ago

The water moves through all the blocks fast enough to not really heat up that much. With everything at 100% load the CPU is the coldest component in my system even with the water going through the GPUs.

Nice! This thing will tear anything up even if you have to turn sli off sometimes! That's a win!

You know I really love the subtle glow of the colors against the black and it's a clean build overall. +1 for sure. Hows the air flow with that case?

Awesome build man :D love how those red lights looks in a dark theme. and um, how long did it took you to install water blocks for gpu?

  • 31 months ago
  • 1 point

For both blocks it took about 20-30 minutes :)

Beautiful PC dude, but if you are going for 4k (which you obviously are) I would have gotten a monitor with higher hz. Still amazing tho.
