Wait, I'm confused a bit. Are you refrigerating the water loop with that black box thing under your desk?

Seriously, I can't believe how far $500 can take you with a pragmatic mindset and some patience. Happy to see this featured, very cool!

I second this, the 2070 will reach the 60hz cap without breaking a sweat, making the monitor the real bottleneck in this setup.

Some recommendations:

  • 1080p 144hz+
  • 1440p 120-144hz (settings will vary strongly based on game)
  • 4k 60hz (probably at medium settings for most games)

I love it, it's fantastic, but the godlike motherboard is just on that side of absolutely insane for this build. Why on earth buy a $750 mobo for such a simple build?

Just about what I was trying to say. Not at all a slap at OP's build or worse still, his/her photography skills, those are STELLAR, but moreso just an observation about the fact that it takes just moderate effort to build a pc like the one displayed.

on-budget: meaning, to respect one's budget. Has nothing to do with price.

When a project manager accomplishes a project "on-budget", it means that he respected the allowed budget, It does not mean that he bought cheap parts. Who cares if that desk is 900$ or 90,000$? That's not at all my point.

Are you seriously getting 5Ghz on the 8700k with only 1.072v? Am I misreading this last photo? Was this a SpeedStep reading on your cpu and the actual is 1.3xxv or 1.4xxv or is this chip actually godly?

Yea umm, not to pile onto the cable management comments but ugh, yea... it's hard to look past those cables.

Imagine walking into a hotel room and everything is pristine except for the bed. The bed is dirty and unmade, pillows on the floor.

Would you expect anyone to consider this a clean and finished room, ready to be rented out?

Clean your cables, soldier! Show it some love. :)

It's amazing to me that one can purchase all of this for only about 20k. Oh how the world of tech has evolved, it's just absolutely incredible. I mean hell, I work from home and all I need to do my job well is a ~$5,500 setup. A friend of mine is a farmer and he started his business with a 640k loan/partial subsidy from the government. Isn't it incredible how the world has changed?

Apologies, I digress.

I think the water-cooling solution you've come up with is damn clever and I love that you took it to heart and built it into the walls. That deserves massive kudos. It's unique, gutsy and I'm sure, really effective. I really enjoy the simplicity of your main build, it fits-in very well with the complete setup, which of course is totally monstrous.

+1 mate, you had me at the custom "in-wall" loop!

Please don't take this personally, but I find that the build is generic and aside from the polished cable management, not generally worthy of a feature. Does it look good? Sure, but I mean black, silent and on-budget are the only conditions one must follow to create this. There's nothing unique, particularly difficult, extra, custom or personalized about it. It's another all-black, albeit pristine, build showcased with high quality photographs.

That being said, I'm not a Barbarian and can certainly appreciate a good feedback sandwhich. You're obviously a talented photographer, have a great eye for design and are very meticulous about aesthetics. There's a good applause deserved here for the patience it took to assemble this build and its setup as cleanly as you have. That complete setup is pretty sexy, that's for sure.

It gets my +1, gj!

You could super-glue thin but wide black rubber O-Rings to cover those holes. It would look a heck of a lot better for dirt cheap. Also, there exists plastic hole covers you can buy online or in small tech shops. Just a thought :)

Can't tell for sure but from looking at the first pic it looks like your video card back-plate still has the protective plastic film on it. You definitely want to peel that off, it's not at all meant to stay there.

Other than that this is a very nice, small and effective build. Super clean cable management as well, kudos on that! Enjoy it! :)

Other than bragging rights - which you now certainly have - the return on the 1950X is exactly backwards in a gaming rig. More money for less performance - way more, for way less.

Games love ultra-fast single-core performance. So a binned 8700k @ 5.2ghz from Silicon Lottery for $629 would absolutely murder the 1950X in gaming performance annnnnnd you'd be left with 300$ extra for custom cables or the start of a water loop or just your savings account :)

Kinda like bringing a dump truck to a drag race. Big, powerful, crazy expensive and can handle heavy loads but slow as molasses on the quarter-mile.

All in all though, you've done a good job, it looks fantastic! +1

Love the build but I would have personally made a small change: the 8700k is an elite CPU, the 1070ti is not an elite GPU. Games benefit far more from a top tier GPU than a top tier CPU. So yea, would have saved a few dollars to invest in a better video card instead, especially given that it's a gaming rig.

Love the vertical mount though, gj :) +1
