Description

This is my 4th build this year. Setup is still in the works. I still got some more customizing to do. This is my 3rd Office/Gaming setup in the last 5 months. Traveled for business last 10 years so never had time for custom pc's or setup's in very long time. Now I'm addicted and cant stop building or changing my setup.

EDIT: Thank you to everyone for the up votes, comments, and support. I enjoy all great builds on here. I really appreciate the feature!

Theme Black & White & Gunmetal

I went with RGB lighting for the custom lighting effects so i change it up weekly. Mainly using pc for gaming, office work, video and photo editing. I like to have light show at times when listen to music on Klispch Refence speakes. They are impressive for there size. but they got nothing on my Klipsch RP-280 and SVS PB-12 plus sub in the home theater setup

I delidded the 7700k for better temps. I got 10c drop at idle and 28c drop at full stress test load. So worth it for the temp drops @ 5Ghz OC. Going to try for 5.1 then 5.2 for some benchmarks for fun, but while keep daily at 5ghz.

I using the 960 evo's for OS and video/photo editing. 850 evo for games will add another 1tb evo for more games. Got Pny ssd for OS clone drive. had several drives over the years die. Just an added insurance. Also got 2tb backup drive for the rest. Planning on adding 8Tb NAS soon .

Still want to build a dual ultra wide setup with intel I9 custom loop with Dual Nvidia Ti's within the next year or two. I haven't had dual or triple setup in forever. kind miss it. Just don't have the room right now for it.

Shoutout to MNPCTECH. They have so many great case mods. Love the front panel on this case as it has/had intake airflow issues...but not now.

Can't believe you got a 28C drop delidding. I had 10-20C drop. Great build and yes building is addicting.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 3 points 14 months ago

I couldn't believe it either but check all my stress test screen shots. Ive seen other's on forums n even 1 YouTube video that had got 28c drop also on his delid 7700k. I guess my chip must have of had way to much thermal compound then most to make such huge difference.

I may be wrong.....totally guessing here, but I think, just using educated deductions here, that you MIGHT like Reinhardt.

Just a guess though. Totally wild, shot in the dark, hail mary type of guess.

Sidd2000 2 points 14 months ago

This is amazing! I'd love to make something like, just a bit more budget-friendly

Hi awesome build!! I'd really like to copy your build but am a pc builder neophyte. Any chance you have a build guide I can follow in making my own REINHARDT?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Sorry been so busy lately, and missed your message. I just spent months buying and returning parts, upgrading, etc over 6 month period till i was finally happy with my setup. I spent alot time on here looking at builds and youtube to get ideas. Over that 6 months i built 6 different pc's and 4 desk setups till i was happy. Gave 1 pc to my sister and sold 1. I still got a bunch parts left i need sell. It was an expensive journey and took awhile. Take idea's from build and put your own twist on it. Like you can do a custom paint job with white and orange. also jaystwocents had good idea to use the new Cougar's Conquer case for overwatch build. Good luck on your build!

It's ya boi 'has the nicest setup and pc in the world' here bringing you another dank-*** overwatch play... +1

I_Need_Big_Drink 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

3rd build (I think) to use the mnpctech front panel! Are you liking it? I'm enjoying mine so far. Looks great with RGB fans behind it.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

ya I like how fans look too and improved air flow. Very well made and love mirror finish on the acrylic. Its really not that expensive.

Dave_6 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Beautiful! Just did my 2nd build and used the same case, such a nice piece. Unfortunately MNPCTech is out of that front panel and who knows if they'll ever have anymore.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Ya I tried other case but i see why everyone love this case. I wanted use to use a different case just so it wasn't another phanteks build. But the the design and build quality is to good for the money. The acrylic front vented panel was only thing i like that made it little different than most. plus it make the expensive rgb fans worth it now since you can see them. really that suxs. I hope they get more in stock. I had to wait few weeks before they had black ones instock then it took like 5 days to get it. I almost bought the white vented panel since they had them instock but decided to wait it out to they finally had black ones.

Hajiwaji 1 point 14 months ago

wow

Specter-Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Needs a Reinhardt pop figure... other than that, beautiful build. Gets my +1!

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I add one to the case and changed the colors and add 2 pics. I want blizzard to make a collectible Statue. tho it would be like $500 since D.Va goes for $450 and is 19" tall

bwebster 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

That would be great if they made a Reinhardt one of those. I'm still waiting on a Sombra funko, I won't hold my breath for one of the detailed statues of her.

Great build by the way. Looks great and nice pictures. Always a fan of Overwatch themes.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Thank you! Ya I want a lot more of pops but so hard to get ones I want. Then several are over priced by online resellers trying to rob people. I Thought they would make more characters in the detailed statue then they have on blizzard.

Specter-Builds 2 points 14 months ago

Looks great with the pop figure in there... Nice job!

Gooberdad 9 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Great looking build. Congrats on the featured spot.

Thumbs up.

Btw watch out that Reinhardt may decide your too conservative with the build and rule against you out of spite.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

lol! ya i changed it to all white and orange theme and put him him case and added new pics

Gooberdad 9 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

That looks cool.

islandg@m3r 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Nice build sir. I had a PC Part list for months without pulling trigger...w8ting for Threadripper and Vega Numbers before finalizing +1

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I was waiting for threadripper and skylake-x but don't really need it right now. I think just wait till volta comes out unless team red has something better next year then maybe upgrade.

alienassasin3 1 point 14 months ago

BRING ME ANOTHER!!!! Turn the RGB into Orange for maximum Reinhardt

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

will do n upload pics

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I did changed it to white and orange theme with Reinhardt pop inside the case! i will take some more pics at night to see if the orange shows up better

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Thank you! It sure is. I have problem modding anything from houses to car n truck etc. I love to build anything and customize!

dylan2749 1 point 14 months ago

good job with that beautyfull case ! it was already beautiful but the front pannel you made made the case be more cooling efficient plus it all blend well together good job man!

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Ya its great mod for the price and extremely well made and very clean. its only 59.99 plus 10 for shipping

BurntSilicon. 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Oh, dang. Your wallet went on a diet. O_o

Nice build, +RGB

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Ya and i got Most of my inwin 805 build to sell for parts or build it again, then sell it. I sold some parts from that build and used some parts for pc build for sister and newphes for gaming/ work pc for her. I got 1500 in parts that only 4 months old i need sell to add few pounds back to my wallet

Bosswoman3 1 point 14 months ago

How long did it take to build this piece by piece? Excellent work on the build by the way.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

I built in a day. then i decided to order the mod 1 cable extesions and add them about 3 weeks later. Also added a second 960 evo while i was at it. i have it built for 5 weeks now.

Anyansayo 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Awesome build. Is there a reason that you went with the Kraken X52 over the X62?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

just cuz i wanted the 3 fans in the front. I tried 2 corsair Hd140 rgb fans i had 1st. Just didnt like the look of it. So i decided to switch to triple 120mm instead. I did try my Corsair HD120 rgb but liked the thermaltakes colors better.

chuckyswiss 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

This build made me gasp. So clean, so powerful. +1 for all that RGB.

darkhawk_18 1 point 14 months ago

bro can i ask you what your job is? that thing looks damn good and so unaffordable for me

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Actually i started a new construction business with brother in law. I used to make double with my old business when traveled 24/7.

ar10ef 4 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Cool build! What amp do you use to drive your 250 Ohm headphones?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I tried the built in amp since reviews online etc said it was good and can drive them but it can't. the built insound card can only drive my Sony MDR-1A if i put the amp on extreme setting which for 100 Ohm and up headphones. I preorder the new Sound BlasterX AE-5. https://us.creative.com/p/sound-cards/sound-blasterx-ae-5

also still trying top decide on what external Dac to go with if the sound blaster card cant push them. I thinking about Audioengine D1 Dac

Camaxide 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Awesome build :D good job indeed :)

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Thanks! i just looked at your setup its very nice. I also have Home theater setup like it.

Camaxide 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

yeah I read so in your description. You have speakers and sub which I also looked at while picking the parts for my own home theater setup :) Are you doing much gaming on the home theater? And if so, what do you find to be the pros and cons?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I wish I that much money to spend on home theater. I would love to have 7.2.4 system in next few years. The atmsos and dts:x sound tracks more 4k movies is amazing. I want to get the new SVS PB16-Ultra. I mainly just used PS4 Pro and Xbox one S. I have 65KS8000 with the PS4 Pro graphics look amazing. imput lag is very good but nothing like how the pc is tho. I have a sheild was going to try test out the pc 4k gaming cast you can do with nvidia gpu's over the wifi or router not sure how it works haven't test it yet. I love gaming on the big screen and destiny looks amazing and so did the new HDR games in upscaled 4k. but the details and how smooth the game play is on the pc is better. I know the tv tends be oversaturaded colors compared to the pc monitor which at times i like that look yet at times i want color to be more life like, accurate, detialed with all the eye candy turned on in games. But KS8000 gets really bright when on game mode and hdr. which is nice but not needed. I want to try one new HDR monitors when they come out if game support is there.

westwandaguys 1 point 14 months ago

Was this your first experience delidding a CPU? I have zero experience myself but it looks like you did a great job. Which tool did you use?

Were you ever concerned about breaking the CPU while delidding?

I am planning an i9 build for sometime later this year (ideally when the 7920x comes out) and I am on the fence about delidding. What are your thoughts on the process and the results? Ideally I would like it to be as stress free as possible; as stress free as risking a $1200 CPU can be...

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 months ago

Yes my first time. Its so easy and there are several youtube videos on how to do it for the 7700k. This is the site i bought the kit parts and supplies i needed. now everything isnt in 1 kit you have to select in options section i think to get the delid tool and reinstall lid tool. plus they sell the liquid metal and better thermal compounds, or buy from newegg or amazon. I used 1 minute gasket maker from the auto parts store i had in my garage for the relid process. I also used gelid thermal compound for x52 to cpu.

https://rockitcool.myshopify.com/

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I wanted that cpu too! delidder88 has a cpu delid tool he made and there is youtube video of him delidded i think 7900x. They say those alot harder to do and more risk. I need to do more research too on it once more people start to delid the new skylake-x. The delid tool for that will not be cheap from what info and videos ive seen. I would be scared a bit to do it my self also with cpu that expensive. The 7700k is cheap in a way so i didnt care that much.

Thegamer15 1 point 14 months ago

Isn't Overwatch cropped for 21:9 monitors? Also is 100hz enough for games like that?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Ya i found some that are 2560x1440 and 4k online that fit really well. i got 20 overwatch wallpaper i downloaded. I want todo several themes for fun to switch it up form time to time. the overwatch theme i just did tonight. in an hour

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Overwatch support it in the menu option and im pretty sure it native support. 100 fps with gsync works great. the game on ultra settings runs 145fps average. I want to try the new ultra wide coming out from asus that 200hz with HDR. then upgrade to volta to get 200hz on ultrawide setup.

Thegamer15 1 point 14 months ago

Great build btw looks beautiful.

MSsniper17 1 point 14 months ago

i just have to complement the motherboard, its absolutely beautiful

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Ya the asus motherboard is alot nicer than the gigabyte motherboards i had in the last 2 builds. The software and over clocking is alot more stable and better designed.

Some0ne 1 point 14 months ago

btw is the sound dampening foam just for looks or?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Mainly and to see if helps with rear speaker ports on the klipsch monitors since i don't have enough room for proper positioning. I looked everywhere for white instead of the blue but no one has any in stock.

m00f 6 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

How is the improvement with the MNPCTECH front panel? I've been thinking about moving into an EVOLV ATX and doing a full custom loop but I'm pretty hesitant considering the case has very mixed reviiews.

Gz on feature too!

SamDaPwner 1 point 14 months ago

the case has really great reviews, just ****** airflow lol.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Thank you! With the mod there is no restriction compared to stock front panel. i dont have a Wind Speed / Air Flow Thermometer to test it. but i do have laser temp gun and intake air is only 1-2c above room temp after going thru the front rad at idle with fan speed on silent, case temp around 4-5c above room temp. under full load i normal get around 6-8c increase in case above room temp. I have all the fans on pwm mode. I havent tested the fans yet on a manual fan curve at 100%. Also the tt ring fans or the corsair hd120 dont have the best cfm. Thats why i keep 2 ml120 pros on the front rad since they have alot of cfm and pressure. there is alot more dust on the front intake air filter that needs cleaned weekly compared to stock front panel didnt collect near as much dust. which to me shows there is alot more air flow thru the front intake now with mnpctech mod over stock solid panel. I will at some point buy wind speed meter to test it because i would like to know too how much of an improve in actual air flow the font panel makes.

Manningg 1 point 14 months ago

Nice build!

Did you make the acrylic psu plate yourself?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Yes i did bought the acrylic sheet of amazon. its really easy to do. there is alot youtube videos on it

Manningg 1 point 14 months ago

Wich video did you use mate? Got a link for me? :D.

Samu3l 1 point 14 months ago

Hi, wonderful build, +1. Congrats on the feature! I know the entire mouse is RGB and all of the LEDs are toggle-able, except for the DPI ones. I was just wondering, since you can't turn the DPI LEDs off, can you change the color? The default is blue, and they are blue in your pictures. Thanks!

TBarkley 1 point 14 months ago

Is the front setup for intake or exhaust?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

intake

TBarkley 1 point 14 months ago

so back and top are exhaust then?

TBarkley 1 point 14 months ago

Pic # 11 shows you radiator fans as push not pull so your front fan setup is exhaust then and the top and back as intake?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

yes

Zulfe 1 point 13 months ago

Did you paint the shroud on the 1080 Ti? Did it require any cable disconnecting and did it void the warranty?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

It was a elite edition i preordered. Its was $25 more to get elite model which has 5 colors to choose from. You have to sign up and get approved to be a evga elite member.

Zulfe 1 point 13 months ago

Thanks for the reply. I had some EVGA products laying around that I used to become an Elite member. Sadly the white is sold out and I'm sure it was limited to the stock they did have.

I guess I'll be plastidipping the shroud or a normal gray one.

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Sorry to here that. Ya i preorder the 1080Ti the day EVGA had them online. I was going to paint mine originally until, They sent me an email offer to upgrade my preorder to the elite edition which took another month of waiting to get the white model. I'm not sure if they are limited run or not. You should email or call EVGA see if they are going to have more of the white edition. I dont think it would void the warranty but you can call/email them to find out.

Zulfe 2 points 13 months ago

I e-mailed them about both future production of the ELITE white edition and painting the shroud. I'll get back to you to let you know what they say.

Thanks again for your responses!

Joiner21 8 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

What kind of led strips did you use for around your desk?

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

I used LIFX Z led strips and aluminum led channels with white defusers from amazon and 3M led clear tape from amazon to hold the aluminum tracks to the desk. I like the app and how you can customize the lifx leds and how much brighter they get than hue lights. they is alot youtube vidoes show the difference between hue and lifx.

Joiner21 8 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Did you end up re-securing the IHS or did you just slap it in there? I think I'm planning to just leave it when I delid mine next week. This makes me eager to get my PG348Q back from Asus so I can get back to the League/Overwatch grind! =D

massive77gsxr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

I used forma gasket to reseal it. I used the 1 minute kind that you buy at auto parts stores so that way you don't have to wait all day day for it setup and cure. I bet it suxs going long time without playing. I waited 8 weeks to get custom 1080ti from vega. It sucked when I returned my 2 1080s to preorder the 1080ti so I did t have to deal with sli issues bit was without gpu for those 8 weeks

JulzDaGamer 1 point 13 months ago

Hey, you make sick builds, have you ever tried on putting it on setup wars, its on youtube by "TechSouce" Im sure you would win the episode. If you win you get 100$ as a bonus.

jo5hua 1 point 11 months ago

when all you have is a hammer EVERYONE ELSE IS A NAIL

TheRealIkeB 1 point 5 months ago

Wow awesome build, now you can play Overwatch at 1440p with all setting maxed at 300 fps, cause, why not?

AscensionGaming 1 point 1 month ago

Really awesome build! I'm considering building it myself now lol. I would have a suggestion if you ever put in liquid cooling pipes to try a yellowish liquid since the case already resembles Reinhardt's armour colour the fluid would match the visor colours!
