Description

Over the past 5 years or so I went on a wild twist for PC building. I started with a MacBook Pro and only played StarCraft 2 which with nothing to compare it to worked just fine. I ended up buying a used PC on Craigslist without any prior knowledge I jumped into an AMD FX6300 and 750ti. It was AWESOME! Then the bug bit...

I upgraded to a 4790k and strix 1080. Went to a 7700k and strix 1080ti...now I am content with my current creation...

Allow me to introduce Sisyphus!

Nice build. Ignore the people nitpicking about parts selection. We all have our own goals and our own budgets and this isn't the parts advice forum.

Oh for sure. I can handle criticism on the interwebs haha. It is mainly from people that dont have the parts they recommend. It is far easier to spend other people's money.

If I were to have this budget all at once it would have been a far different system. The parts in this build have been accumulated over the past couple of years save the recently released products even then I bought mainly used. I'd venture to say i spent close to 50 percent of what the price is on pcp.

So you went backwards with your latest GPUs? 1080ti to 1080? Why, if I may ask?

I did! I am still leaning toward getting a 1080ti but I was offered a lot of money for my ti a few months back that I decided to do the switch. I sold my strix 1080ti for $1,000 to a miner. A few months later I bought this Hybrid used on reddit for $450. So price is what decided the change. I am gaming comfortably with this 1080 so not too pressured into the ti...yet.

I know man. I really did not want to sell it tbh. Someone reached out to me and offered 1k for it. I thought he was joking and heck I even tried to talk him out of it but he really wanted it and pushed it. I think it was a miner wanting to add to his rig. His money his choice. I used that money to buy a 1070 and then when prices dropped I snagged a nice used 1080 hybrid. I am happy with this card right now. It does everything I want at my resolution and game play so I might hold off on getting a ti and not even thinking of the 20 series atm.

Nice build! I'd consider getting a 1080 ti on black friday....

Thank you! And yes I am thinking about it. Had one before and it was nice but the 1080 isnt too bad. I am looking mainly used on reddit if I ever do buy one tho.

It is a super solid gpu. I have not paid too much attention to black Friday sales, mind sharing where you see the sales? I'm very curious on pricing for a new 1080ti.

Yeah, I'll let you know if I see a good deal. :)

I probably should have put the prices I actually paid for these items. The prices are just pulled from the merchants I guess. No way I spent this much on all of the gear haha.

very cool build. one of my dreams to make a pc like this. how was the building of it?

  • 7 months ago

I enjoy building and manipulating the components far more than gaming! I decided my 8700k with the little rockett88 tool and my liquid metal just got in today so I'll be taking her a part this evening. My mobo pushes CPU to 5.2 at 1.35v but hit 88c on 4 hours of stress last night. In hoping the thermal grizzly drops it 10 or so c.

so you're just like me. that sounded really narcissistic but i also like doing that way more than gaming

  • 5 months ago

So late follow up. Once I used the liquid metal my temps dropped to 73c on full load using an EVGA CLC 280 AIO. I made it to where I would not hear the fans so the curve is somewhat low. I am not sure if the fan speed plays a huge factor in the temps but no noise is my goal here and obviously manageable temps which at 5.2 1.35v 73c is amazing IMO.

Fighting the urge to custom water loop. I don't have the money for it but want to do it soooo bad.

try using the ekwb watercooling setup quiz thing, you can find a way to get a cheap but good custom loop

and softline or hardline, because if you do softline right it looks better than hardline but hardline usually to me looks better 90% of the time

Initially read the title as "Syphilis" ... other than that, this looks really good.

One question, how loud are both the graphics card cooler and cpu cooler? I have these and I can't quite get them to shut up.

  • 7 months ago

Haha I get that often when I post on FB. Brother it is super silent I mean I cannot hear the fans or pump at all. I forget it is on if not for the rgb lights. Probably contributing to the high temp I get on my CPU however. I have the pumps on both CPU and gpu max at the time but the fans are never exceeding 50 percent to keep noise down. Silent no matter the load. With my settings I have the GPU around 60s c and CPU hits low 70s gaming. I have the stock fans on the evga clc 280 but I did replace the 120mm on the gpu radiator with a corsair ml120.

Upvotes. Absolutely beautiful setup, everything works so well together. Purple and white is so clean. Hoping for a feature.

Thank you so much! I really enjoy this color scheme. I originally wanted just monochrome but it was slightly dull so wife said to add purple...works so well!

great build bro, very fitting name for a pc, the struggle to upgrade never ends !

haha exactly! Even right now I am searching deals on different parts. I don't think I am too happy with the EVGA CLC 280. I have a FD s36 that I might switch out and see if it is any different.

I'm thinking about getting the H700 Case. Hows the airflow of the case?

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

Well, this is tough for me to answer because I came from a Enthoo Evolv and the airflow was not great in that case at all. So this case is better but I cant really tell by how much! I do think the perforated edges make a difference in letting air in and out.

whats the temperatures you are getting with this build?

73c on load for CPU running 5.2 at 1.35v. I am using adaptive voltage and keep the power management on Balanced until I game. When gaming I change the power management to High Performance and it will hover around 65c during games. I have a low fan curve on my AIO though. I don't want to hear the fans at all. And all other fans are manual in BIOS to 45 percent at all times. GPU is average 45c on load. I did OC lightly. +100 on core and +500 on memory with maximum voltage using EVGA Application (set to 150%)

Nobody is talking about it but what sells this build is the funko pop. :)

why the 1080? You can get rtx 2070's with that much price on black friday.

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

Oh man these are far from 'new' or recently purchased. I bought the 1080 used on Reddit a few months back. But even then I wouldnt go with rtx cards personally when the used market for GPUs is pretty good right now. I appreciate the early adopters on the 20 series but I am not one of them.

On another note: the 1080 is not even close to struggling pushing my 1440p at 144 for what I play. I venture to say I could survive with a 1070 but the 1080 is nice and hybrid is cool and quiet.

Yeah, I mean it is your decision, i was only suggesting, Awesome setup you have there though.
