all that work and it winds up on the floor :(
and every single seagate harddrive i have ever had has failed within 6 months of purchase for me. i think i went through 3 or 4 of them in a 2 year period. i remember reading a long time ago the factory in india where they were making them ended up flooding so maybe i was one of those lucky ppl
no mods thanks god. the clearance was sooooo close. but it worked perfectly. and i would just make sure the liquid cooler that you end up going with has tubes long enough. the one i have was literally perfect length so i would recommend that if you wanted no worries. anything shorter and the struggle would have been real. good luck dude. feel free to link me the finished build.
but i love the case. very happy with the temperatures. never go above 60 on anything
well it was def one of the obstacles. to get the block through, they conveniently have the hole where my hoses go through connected to the larger opening behind the mobo that connects each chamber. but i think i had to remove the drive cage in order to get it through. all in one cooling setups were kind of a pain because you cant take the hoses off and just pass it through but it still worked. at least its not as demanding as a custom cooling system. you just gotta install the cpu radiator and pass the block before you install the mobo.
also i had to install my gpu on the mobo first before i screwed the mobo down. for some reason with the mobo already installed the port plate on my gpu was hitting this tiny little corner where its suppose to clear. other than that it was simple. just nice to know before hand. may very between mobo and gpu as well. or could just be how the case is.
oh wow. i like your sabertooth mod. you got me thinkin about mine now. does the face plate unscrew from front back or both?
i almost got that board for my build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Y4KZxr
where do you get the braided power cables?
i havent had a wd fail on me yet. goin on 8+ years
very clean. where do you get the braided cables? are they full length to the psu or just braided extenders?
their open boat case always cracks me up XD
interesting m.2 spot on that board.
1080 wasnt out yet at the time of building it about a year ago. i almost got sli 980 ti at the time but glad i didnt because now i want to stretch this card out for another 3 years at least and upgrade to the newest generations that will probably be much better then even current best seeing as efficiency is on the rise
what would you suggest. at the time i really didnt know that much about ssd's. still dont really. i was thinking about m.2 fora little bit for os and stuff.
yeah i originally owned a nzxt h440 for my first build so naturally went to that noctis 450 with the more angled aggressive look and there was more plastic than i preferred. so i ended up getting the lian li. IN WIN was another really great company for a chassis. their cases are worth a look. didn't know about them till recently.
i just remember the metal facing for the ports on the gpu hitting something by like half a cm because of the way it was designed. the new model i see is an updated one than the one i bought. (even though i selected the current one on the parts list). the only advice i have gotten on over clocking is not to use any software but instead to go to the bios and manually doing it. just know what ur doin. im not one to really overclock unless i really need it. its like a turbo on an engine. its just gonna make it wear faster. and thank you!
yeah i was talkin bout the dslr. i use a d5mark iii for landscape and what not. team canon! may i sugesst checking out samyang/rokinon if you dont need all the features but really decent glass for the retail price.
if they were on radiators then that can cause some resistance in flow causing sound. it worked out well with the pc 08 case because i put the cpu radiator on the backside of the ring fans. they still make noise if the side is open but once its together the back compartment really keeps it quiet. the fans themselves are silent tho. the yellow ring fans i havent been able to find on the market since i got them. and i literally bought the last ones i could find about a year from now. if i dont use them maybe i can send them to you. bec they are still sitting in the box unused. i have 2 of them.
i had that same case for my first build and loved it. ended up getting a lian li pc08 case for my second build in my profile. nice setuptoo. what camera do you use?
would be cool to incorporate this into a desk and make the glass flush mounted to the surface
did you have any problems installing the gpus once the mobo was already installed? on mine, i had to install them on the motherboard before i screwed down the board. that was the biggest issue i had. and i ended up fitting my cpu cooler in the backside of the case behind my ring fan intakes. check out my completed build with it. but nice system dude. welcome to lian li pc08 club lol. its like owning a jeep. everyone waves haha
no issues on my end. no idea who sells em now.
what are bad temps for you? my my gpus never go over 60. i have seen 62 once while really pushing the card on stress tests. i never have a problem with this case in cooling. but then again i have both liquid cooled gpu and cpu. if you do a smoke test you can see it gets good airflow. but awesome build! i came so close to buying two gpus. but decided im gonna wait for the next gen cards to come out. they are gonna have something like upwards of 128gb of ddr5 with barely any power requirements... some crazy stuff. and yes the led strips are adhesive but mine havent fallen off yet. 6 months deep. and i believe they do sell a replacement on lian li website.
thats the good good. haha sweet setup though. i really like the attention to color scheme. check out my setup we have some similarities. i was so close to buying that x99s but sold out right before i hit purchase. hows it workin out for ya?
dang i got the jbl 308 with the studio sub. where di you get the white 305? are they your own custom?
yeah i had built this thing before linus and hardware cunucks. i guess we were all on the same page that month haha
i beleive it holds up to 8 (2ssd out of the 8)
beautiful heatsink. love the build dude. hope you like the case as much as i do. i have my own pc08 build. check it out on my profile got a few pictures.
im loving the seahawk. benchmarks scored really high. fans are vaery quiet. even under stress test. possibly partly case design works well with noise. I ended up not getting the 2nd pgu instead ended up getting a 21:9 34 inch curved Samsung monitor. i think im gonna hold off on this generation of gpus let this one ride out and then get a next gen one that will be far more efficient and have far more ram then current gpus. well see those in the next couple of years. but this card still runs anything high graphics. the 21:9 @ 1440p makes it work harder but heat is never a problem since the heat is isolated in the back side of the case and away from the main hardware.
came with the case. unless ur talking about the fans.
gpu temps arent that bad honestly. its def the hottest thing in the case. i have never seen it go above 65 ever. and i have been pushing it with gaming multiple monitors while screen recording native resolutions. its a very very quiet case. its actually quieter than my macbook pro too (when the macs fans are really goin cuz im doing high sample rates in ableton and virtual synths) ... have yet to fully test the system on adobe products and do some intense 3d renderings. let me know how it goes or shoot a link over this way if you choose to upload it.
came with the case. the ring fans and the vegas fan didnt tho
i hope so. a feature would be nice. im in this site religiously.
linus tech did something almost identical in a corsair case too. last week i believe. we all seem to be on the same page.
its not in yet.
very good im seeing now restriction and good temps. cpu never goes over 45 under heavy stress. and gpu never goes over 65. its hotter but that may be because its also pulling hot air out of the case. gonna try to turn the fan around and see if it will intake better.
it wasnt at the time when i made the list. i have had the parts list made up with some changes here and there for the past two months. even two weeks ago, it didn't exist. unless they added it in the database because this post. i couldnt even find other posts with the pc08 on here. if you say its on there now ill add it.
n64 is a must
i found out after i baught the fans that you can get them in rgb color changing rings but they were very pricey. also the all white ring fans did go through my mind and at one point was my plan. but im weak for green and purple/blue color theme. my room is somewhat boring with all white walls. figured it could use some color. as far as the case goes, there is a certain method you must use to install everything. it was rather frustrating at times. i had to install the liquid cpu rad in the back (which is good) keeps the heat away from the board. but the tubing interfere with the clearance for a second gpu rad i was gonna put at the top. so it looks like ill either have to mod the case or just put the 2nd gpu rad on the back fan mount. ideally i would love to keep both gpu rads up top to intake cold air. the motherboard installation proved to be the most annoying only because the gpu doesn't want to go in after the board was already installed. so i had to install everything on the board first then install the entire thing into the case. since lian li designed the expansion bays to have the thumbscrews on the outside instead of the inside. this for some reason prevented me to install the gpu. but all in all im still happy once its all together. thanks for the comment.
i wanted the benifit from the extra lanes the 5930k would have supplied me. 5960x would have been double the price for noth that much more performance. i feel like the middle route was best for my application. i think im eventually going to do another build with a 14 core xeon and build up a server. but then again they are very expensive. the cpu alone for that idea is nearly the price for this entire build. haha
i had actually ordered all the parts before they made the video. i have just been religiously watching pc part picker and researching the market for some time now.
