Description

Another CaseLabs build. This one replaced "A Classy Green Devil" after I sold it. This is my everyday work/play system. I use it for Photoshop, gaming, office productivity, etc.

I decided to go with 2 loops for a couple reasons. The main reason being that I typically swap out my video card more often than my CPU, so this way I don't have to drain my CPU loop and can throw any GPU in there for a quick test. The other reason is the case is pretty large and I felt the space needed to be utilized.

The only problem that I ran into with this build was with the EK MOSFET. The way it was designed it will not work with the CaseLabs SMA8 and there are probably other CL cases that it won't work with as well. The nickel bar extends past the motherboard tray once installed and will not allow you to screw down the motherboard. In addition, it will not clear the case divider when you try to slide in the motherboard tray. I headed down to my local machine shop and had them cut off the bar and the finished block is what you see. Works perfectly fine.

Hope you all enjoy!

Thank you. Yes, I got a nice 5960x chip. :)
Yes, I would say it is similar, but then again all SMA8 sort of look similar. Lol

Wait until you see this other SMA8 that will be showing up soon here. :)

Ah, can I recommend a case for your next build? Parvum Systems make really nice mini ITX cases that I think you will like. Check this out. It is in Australian dollars, but you will probably be able to get it in the US. Nice build!

That's a shame. I was thinking of buying a black and red Parvum case for my next build. I think I might stick to a thermaltake core V51 and just shove Cooler-Master Jet - Flo fans in there instead.

  • 47 months ago

Thank you. I've actually used there case before. Honestly, I was not that impressed with it. Maybe it was the case I had, but I just didn't really enjoy working in it. I'd like to try another again sometime. The guys at Parvum are awesome, I will say that.

DazMode. I bought the last 2 they had. Nobody has them anywhere I looked. Lol I even checked with Bitspower themselves. "They are in short supply" One of the reasons I went this way because they were hard to get and I wanted to be a little different. https://www.dazmode.com/store/

Only 500 GB of storage for Photoshop, Gaming, and Office work? How? Amazing build btw, was the white backplate graphic by choice to be white instead of green to tie in with the theme?

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Yep that's it. :) I work off of a Synology DS1815+. No need for anything else but a boot drive. The back plate came with the bitspower block. I thought about painting the white portion but opted not to in case I ever sell the block somebody else may not like it. Thanks!

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

Ahh, makes sense then. The white on the backplate kind of helps break up the green theme to give some balance instead of it being overwhelming. I was mainly curious as to if that was on purpose or by accident.

Amazing computer! I'd love to see some corsair SPs with the rings painted green to match the fluid. your build is near identical to what I plan to upgrade to now that I am doing alot of game development from home.

I'd love to see PCP allow you to input the voltage for CPU and GPU to go along with the clock speed and temps. Seeing your amazing OCs and temps on those GPUs is awesome, but I'd like to know what voltage you are using. It would help alot of overclockers to see what kind of cooling is required for certain temps at a certain voltage.

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

1.295v It will do 4.8 on all cores at 1.37. Temps get hot with that voltage. GPU's are about 1.26v GPU's don't have a problem with the heat. They usually run 28c. 34c is the absolute max I've ever seen and that was once after it was basically heat soaked from running benchmarks stability tests, etc.
