Description

Built in April of 2017. Most everything purchased from Microcenter.

Currently overclocked 5.1Ghz @ 1.35v with no AVX offset. GPU is clocked at 2.1Ghz @ 1v with GPU memory sitting at 12Ghz.

I wanted to do a loop in this chassis while retaining the PSU shroud. I originally attempted use hard line but didn't have enough clearance coming out of the radiator to make it look decent.

Plans for 2018 include:

  • 8700K

  • Maximus X

  • Install my RAID drives

  • Wall mounted P3 (still undecided on new chassis)

  • D5 Pump and taller res

  • Swap remanding EK fittings for Bitspower

  • Replace CPU block with mono block

  • Replace monitors with 32" 4K 144Hz ultrawide

  • Audio Technica studio mic, arm & filter

  • AKG headphones

  • Amp / Dac

  • Replace Logitch speaker with passives (undecided)

  • Install shelf on wall

  • Wood flooring

  • Wall mount new TV

  • Wall art

  • Install aquarium and reptile cage

your cable management is one point

LulzKev submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Thank you! I plan to wall mount a P3(still undecided on chassis) this year. I'll be making custom peripheral cables and running them though the wall.

that is a mighty clean setup you have. I approve. What's the box on the floor? The speaker subwoofer?

LulzKev submitter 1 Build 2 points 14 months ago

Yup, Subwoofer!

What is the thickness of the radiator? EK PE or XE?

Can you tell me what monitor mount you're using? I have two 27" monitor. Been looking for a mount for a week and they all look so vague about the specs and the price is somewhat outrageous.

Nice Build BTW!!!! so clean!, wish I have the effort to actually clean my desk...

I'm using two different monitors. Dell S2716DG & Dell SE2717H. I have them mounted on a dual vesa arm from microcenter.

Lookup your monitor specs and see if they support the vesa mount then order the correct size. If they aren't vesa compatible you'll have to make custom brackets to mount them.

so clean! i have two questions. first off, i have the exact same two monitors and was wondering if you know exactly the model of the dual mount from microcenter? and second, how did you manage to span the wallpaper so nicely across the monitors despite the different resolutions? im sorta a noob sorry haha

Most of my play time consists of Guild Wars 2 and Mech Warrior Online.
