this PC is still a work in progress. been like that for a year. ordered some fitting for water cooling and they have been on back order since January 14. looks like I will just cancel the order and order direct from EKWB.

All that is left to purchase for this build is: - fitting for the custom loop - coolant concentrate - a second pump motor with the mounting head for a dual pump - and custom cable mods with combs

anyways - here is the list so far

For realz?!

Anyway, your psu is way under powered, like you have 1w to allow for overclocking your cpu & 2 gpus... which ain't happening [edit. tho I've read some reviews of high end units that you can push beyond they max rating, seasonic platinums for example]. You should prolly be looking at a 1100-1200w unit to allow for overclocks with a little extra so you get better energy efficiency.

Mixing and matching ram speed reduces all ram to running at the slowest speed installed.

  1. Yeah. That power consumption is a little off. Thats based on the fans running at max. I have all of the fans on low at the moment. We will see how fast they have to run once the watercooling is installed. From the research i did (and trust me i did 5 hrs a night for weeks) i wont have to run thise fans very fast once the watercooling is going. Im kind of limited to my power supply with power tho. I cant draw more than my power supply when at full load. Which is 865 watts.

  2. I screwed up when i bought the second pack of ram. Thought they were both same speed. But turns out they werent. Doesnt make a difference. When i built it it had the lower of the two speeds in it.

All in all id still like to think it is a monster if a pc for a first time build. Even though my power supply may be a little underpowered.

It's a monster pc, no doubt in my mind :D

Site wattage estimate isn't super accurate iirc, I'd prolly grab a kill-a-watt and see what the draw was.
