Initially when I built this pc I had no clue where to start. until I actually started this endevour and had a full sized desk sitting in front of me with literally square footage of open space to fill I had no idea how much work was going to need to go into this.
Everything from custom cable extensions that are 40 inches long, all the way to cutting all you custom holes to feed your wires through for cable management. (Didn't come with any active cable hiding methods)
I had never used hardline tubing before, but after reviews I decided to go with monsoon over EK solely because with this build I needed over 40 fittings. With that kind of number of fittings and over 8 feet of tubing needed I needed to be at least a little frugal. Bang for their buck...they're worth it. But their finish is delicate.
As far as the CPU and GPU go, people ask why did I go intel and nvidia constantly. And honestly, I just didn't trust ryzen and crossfire drivers at the time. No regrets there. I have 0 buyers remorse. This 5960x gets a MOnSTER overclocked.
The ram is of course way overkill. No one actually needs 128 go of ram. But I got those from a sponsor so I wasn't too worried.
The 3000 watts of power is also a little overkill. The rig currently takes around 1250 watts of power overclocked at the moment. With one PsU running at 100% all the time I knew that would have issues. My two ax1500 watt corsair power supplies never have to turn on and nearly break a sweat.
The waterblocks for the ram seemed a little unnecessary at first, but they are extremely Estedically pleasing to look at. xspc does a fantastic job of lighting all of their blocks up..something EK didn't do.
The reservoirs were a no brainer and happen to be another sponsor part. Who doesn't like RGB in their reservoirs?
I decided to go duel loop because honestly I just like the look. I know a single loop would have probably cooled more effectively but meh.
After gaming at 10320x1440 I feel like I have never gamed before. It is an entirely different experience I hope each and every one of you enthusiasts get to experience
I went through a total of 4 asus motherboards, 2 defective, and one was destroyed by distilled water while running and a tube blew off.
The pc is rightfully named, because it is, and always will be, an endless void to throw money into.
