Description

My first custom build that I mainly use for gaming, Pretty smooth build that began around August and was added on to since then (mainly RGB lighted components!) Overclocked to 5ghz and has been running stable. I also delidded my cpu and replaced the cheap paste with liquid metal. So far, temps at full load seem to peak around mid 60's on cpu and mid 70's on gpu. Had a blast building in this thing.

Updated 5/18: Added 8700K and z370 motherboard along with 360mm radiator.

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thank you sir. I appreciate the kinds words!

codya2014 2 points 8 months ago

ok, something no one has commented on that impresses me more than anything since you cant buy patience, the cable management. extremely clean. great PC in general!

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks, cable management on the back side was a pain in the butt, due to the case having glass on all sides.

codya2014 2 points 8 months ago

yeah, gotta make everything that shows look good, and you succeeded

dawarium 2 points 7 months ago

+1 for the white ftw3

also, do the leds for the thermals spill into the main ones for you?

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

which leds are you referring to?

Otterman366 5 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

the ones that illuminate the "EVGA | Geforce GTX 1080 ti" on the top and the 3 thermal ones above the "1080"

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I haven't noticed any light bleeding into the other leds on the card. The led are usually set to rainbow, so I can't really tell because it looks like a small rave going on in the case anyways! I will set the leds to static and see if I notice anything.

whats that thing that moves the GPU cables to the right

syg101 3 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

it's called the EVGA PowerLink.

NotJackMinnella 1 point 8 months ago

its awesome i never knew about it

NotJackMinnella 1 point 8 months ago

do you need a EVGA card to run it i assume

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I dont think so. You can change the pin layout on it to fit just about any layout, so I dont see why you couldn't use it on another gpu brand.

NotJackMinnella 1 point 8 months ago

awesome'

syg101 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

no, it works with any, since power connectors are universal.

Beautiful build, really impressive. I love the desktop background you used, I’ve been using that same one myself for a while now.

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks man! Great minds think alike!

Zemnarack 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks man!

Hi -

Looks like you did a really good job. Your build is very tight; well done. My son and I built with the same mobo/case combination and I see you had to remove the mobo bezel that included the lightpipes on the Hero IX. I was a little bummed by that. Not quite sure where to direct my frustration; at Asus for the added depth required by that bezel or toward Corsair for not giving us much room at the top of the case. For clarity, this information was available before I bought and therefore I am ultimately responsible.

Cheers! Jim and David in Cary, NC

Gorgeous build. I plan on doing something similar but with an 8700k and a Asus Strix 1080ti OC edition.

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Appreciate the kind words. I should update the post as I just upgraded to 8700k and maximus x hero mobo.

BeardedYeti 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Very clean. Just had a faulty pump with my Kraken x52 so been eyeing up your cooler. How’s it performing?. Thanks.

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Been doing good so far, no complaints. It has pretty solid reviews online, and can be found on sale a quite bit as of late.

ryanthekinggg 1 point 7 months ago

How did you get your lights on your RAM and the case fans to sync with eachother?

AUtigers82 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Unfortunately they don't sync together. The fans use Corsair link and the ram is using Aurasync along with the mobo.
