Description

Same as DeathStarSquared but bigger graphics card, a bigger case and MX-4 hiding under the cooler. P.S. much easier to install stuff and more play room for big GPU toys. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/ct7WGX

This is the user benchmark of computer http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/4359456

As for the build difficulties... The two JETFLO 120mm's needed a 4 pin splitter and at least 6" of 4 pin extension to reach the board. The push-pull fan setup for the radiator just barely had room for the Blue LED fan.... Almost had to Dremel the fan frame a bit for it to fit next to the water cooler on the CPU.

Have a good one out there enjoy the Red/White/and Blue theme.

Wouldn't the 7500 bottleneck the 1080?

So far so good. Maybe I'll see somethings up when I upgrade my 1080p world to a shiny new 4K monitor world. For now I think I have GPU overkill but it's the only thing on Amazon One Day Shipping that was available.

Lol that's how I was. Oh no next day? Next card then. I ended up being so impatient I just had best buy price match a gtx 1080 and went with it. Love the build and it's def a true real man's build. Not just rgb and liquid cooling. Cheers Mate!

I've seen people pairing 7600K with 1080Ti - and I probably would've, too. No problems there yet...

I'm not an expert however a relatively new CPU paired with a newer GPU would not be close to causing a bottleneck. Normally it is a poor GPU that bottlenecks a system.

Are you too lazy to have an overclockable CPU?

Yes.

Your fan should be in front of your radiator. You need to swap it around.

That's funny for you to say that. I am actually going to install another fan on that side so the outside fan will pull air thru the radiator and the fan before the radiator will push air thru the radiator. Kind of like how every air cooler is built for cpu's. Would you happen to know where to get those inch long thumb screws that pass through the fan and screw into the radiator?

Ok, a push pull configuration will work. Was surprised why you decided to go with a pull configuration instead of push. Will have the very same CPU cooler and I will be going with a push configuration and 2 exhaust fans at the top to suck out all the hot air. You can get those on Amazon, simply search for radiator and you should be sorted.

Nice, thank you for your information.

Search for radiator screws I meant. M4 should do.
