Description

Edit:

Thank you so much for the feature! Very much appreciated, a lot of work went into everything!

A quick note in case someone notices, I switched out my Bitspower monoblock for the EKWB one (there are pictures of both).

Wear to start....

This build started as this: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/qgFtt6

I wasn't completely happy with everything, so I started this build over the last few months. Let start off with some of the custom times.

Case Mods - 19 holes drilled in total nothing overly major except the spacing on the res holes had to be spot on. The goal was to minimize the tubing from the front side unlike my previous build.

Custom Cables - Almost every cable in the case is custom made to length, the exceptions being the CaseLabs cables that were already sleeved or the USB 3.0 that I was unable to sleeve. Went with Shade 19, Carbon Red, and Blackest Black.

Cooling - Mix of Aquacomputing, EKWB, Bitspower and Singularity. All the Rads are EKWB 1x XE480, 1x CE560, 1x CE280. Singularity Res's and Mounts, Bitspower matte black fittings, EKWB GPU blocks, and Monoblock, Aquacomputing Aquaero, D5 pump and flow meters communicating via Aquabus. Mayhems Pastel coolant, red and dark grey.

GPU - Titan XP with shunt mod. Pretty happy with how this tuned out, everything seems to just run smoother without a power limit even though it is very minimal performance gain.

CPU - have previously delidded the 7980xe, but purchased the 4.5ghz prebin from Silicon Lottery. VERY happy with this purchase even with the premium. (have the old delid one if anyone is interested).

A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this. I have some additional photos in the build log Overclock. Happy where everything is at right now. Before anyone asks, I have no earthly good reason to build this, except for the challenge and making everything exactly the way I wanted.

Ended up settling on the following settings for everything for 24/7 use:

DRAM - 4000 mhz 17-17-17-37-T1 timings @ 1.4v CPU - 4.5ghz @1.125v Cache - 3.0ghz @ 1.05v GPU - 2075 gpu and 1583 on the ram

Aida64 stable 1 hour - max temps (only on a couple cores) 83C Prime95 stable 1 hour - max temps (only on a couple cores) 99C GPU stable on all benchmarks I have ran - max 40C Memory stable at 5000% RAM Test no errors

Was able to max boot into windows at 5.2ghz @1.42v lol....ran benchmarks @ 5.0ghz 1.35v-1.38v depending. Wattage at the wall when running these was 1400 plus watts (GPU included).

TimeSpy and Firestrike results so far (for 2 GPU systems):

TimeSpy Extreme - 9th TimeSpy - 11th FS Ultra - 8th FS Extreme - 4th FS - 12th

Only lose about 5-10% on 24/7 settings which I am very pleased with.

Over $15k worth of computer parts dangling and relying on the robust build quality of an 80 dollar ikea drawer. You're a very brave individual.

Wondering who would be the first to comment, I have something else coming but it’s on BO haha.

Thanks so much for making a great product. Just an FYI your monoblock performs slightly better then the competition :). Also used your Radiators and tubing.

I love the different coloured liquids in the dual loop. This should get featured for that alone.

scarfxce 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

I feel like the red light overpowers everything, especially the nice gray loop. I think a white led strip would help show off its beauty but just my 2 cents

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Funny my girlfriend made me change it to white I will add a pick at the end for you :)

Most people wouldn't even know what to do with 4-screens on a beast like that.. jeeeesh talk about productivity. Do you happen to work for the NSA? lol everyone is like "wtf this guy do!?!?!"

Nonetheless I really appreciate your work, the color scheme is my fav.. had me from the start. Thank you very much for sharing! +100

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I do work from home sometimes yes. Thank you for the kind comments :).

Gizmoducky 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Great looking build. I really like how you hid most of the tubing. It just sets your build apart for the rest of the crowd that has tubing everywhere.

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Thanks, check out singularity computers on YouTube Daniel there was a bit of the inspiration.

Gizmoducky 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Will do! Thanks

Wolklung 2 points 7 months ago

"Just another red & black build" ......

Don't forget you've got some grey in there too with that coolant + custom cables.

Had to make it a little unique lol

Hector1908 8 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Great build bro , very nice . How much liquid did u need for both loops?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

About 1.2 liters for the CPU that’s a ruff guess. And pretty close to 2 for the GPU.

Hector1908 8 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Great tube layout bro . How is the tube up above handling the heat that comes out of the rad ?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Not even a factor, I think the roast even after one night running a stress test was like 32C so it’s not hot enough to make it sag or anything.

Hector1908 8 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

That is great bro . Thanks for the replay , I need to do the same thing but was a little worried its gonna get hot and the o rings gonna be loosening and leak will happen .

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Yah it just doesn’t get hot enough, the small red spot there you see is from when I drained the loop I opened up that tube to let air in and forgot to wipe it off.

Dude this aint no just another red and black build

SimonOcean 2 points 4 months ago

Umm... yaaaas.

I am currently building in an SMA8/A myself with X299 Dark. I found this build as I was looking at the Trident Z RGB 4000 MHz CL17 Quad kit... how do you find the memory modules? What settings are you using 24/7? And what OC have you achieved on them?

(GSkill are currently bringing out a 4133 17-17-17-37 kit..., but it has yet to arrive on Amazon.de).

Anyways. Loved seeing your build. Just... WOW. But then you knew that already!

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Actually if you read around some of the 3600 16-16-16-36 kits will still OC the best. If I were to do it again i would troll some of the other forums and pick up a kit from a proven OC'er and use those even if you pay a little premium you know they will be good.

SimonOcean 2 points 4 months ago

Well, I managed to pick up some Trident Z RBG 3200 14-14-14-34 at a very good price. (Amazon warehouse). I realise that they are binned lower than the other keenly timed memory, but I could not justify >65% price differential for the slick stuff. This will be good enough. I can always flip and change my mind if I want to push my CPU. Once you are above 3600 on SL-X it is just as much dependent on the motherboard, CPU memory controller and power supply anyways. You really can't afford a weak link in any of the four things.

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

I am actually running a 64gb set now that is 3200 14-14-14-34 and feel like it performs much better and more consistent, i think you made a good choice.

undeadrebel1441 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

This PC is worth almost what I make in 2 years...

goes back to bed

Beautiful build.

xXGeniusGamerXx 1 point 7 months ago

i can recommend something i think RGB FANS XD

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I thought about it, the extra wiring and cable management would have been a *****. I like the cleaner look without RGB honestly

NinjaXc30 1 point 7 months ago

how are the monitors mounted? could you post some pics of that please?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Added some pictures at the end sorry for the little dust. The top is Ergotron, I forget where the bottom stand came from I have had it for awhile.

cramstr 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

What is that headphone stand?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Corsair ST100 love it. Only issue I have is Corsair Utility Engine messes with AuraSync

cramstr 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

It looks so cool! Thanks!

antonjetpack 1 point 7 months ago

i personally dont like rgb ram that is red, but its a feature. +1

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 0 points 7 months ago

I honestly feel the same way, I wish Gskill made this model of ram in the non RGB, but they don't. One of the things I am not 100% happy with on this build, but it looks better than having it off completely.

antonjetpack 1 point 7 months ago

no, gskill does have ram that is in the trident z lineup that is not rgb

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Not that is 4000 mhz that is cl17 timing....

Shekelberg 1 point 7 months ago

Should have gotten the Rampage VI Extreme and 128GB of ram, seeing that you spent that much money and also have Titans. And could have also spent another $5000 on Titan Vs

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

less performance out of 128 gb, and you cant SLI Titans lol. I have the Extreme working for another build, the Apex overclocks slightly better.

Thegreatgnome 1 point 7 months ago

Why is your CPU 1200 dollors over msrp?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

Purchased from Silicon Lottery. It was the 4.5 ghz binned version that they don't currently have in stock, they have only had a handful that have tested that high, but i paid a premium to get a good overclock basically.

UneditedSkunk 1 point 7 months ago

Ha, how's it feel to have one of the most premium builds on the planet right now and still have dual ps2 ports? Respect the effort you put into OC'ing this, what did you get on your old delid?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Honestly in it wasn't that much better, this chip runs slightly cooler and i can get .1-.2ghz more. Maxing out before I was about to hit 4.9 I can run benchmarks at 5-5.1 now. Everyday use its pretty much the same, I was at 4.4@ 1.112 v prior and this one is 4.5@1.125. The chip in the build is just better silicon and runs way more stable no matter what I throw at it.

enricko7 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

But why is your mouse listed as $300???

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

About what I paid for it, try and find that mouse for less. I don’t think it’s sold in the US anymore.

enricko7 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

But why though?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Why not?

LonghornAlamo2040 1 point 7 months ago

I freaking love red and black.

DBKLYN83 1 point 7 months ago

Are you a trader? Why do you use your mouse # pad for?

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

No lol. I game, like I said in my description I don’t really have a good reason to have built something this extreme just an enthusiast and wanted a challenge. I do work from home some and it’s nice, but overkill for what I do.

zknicho1 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Will give +1 for spellcheck ;)

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Hahaha yah I need to edit a few things meh lol.

Brandonr757 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

My wallet just peed itself. Amazing build. Obviously a lot of work put into it, not just lots of cash. Love the watercooling and cables.

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you!

Jacob4029 1 point 6 months ago

Where did you get your stickers from? I have looked all over for my titan Xp stickers, and I couldn't find them

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

There was a place on ebay that did them, just go to ebay and search TItan XP Badge and its the first hit.

Jushi 1 point 7 hours ago

This is so great of a build! +2

daniellilley 0 points 7 months ago

i find it very (lets be kind) pointless and not smart to spend this much money on a PC ;) Could have bought a a Toyota that would last 20 years. Or couldve put this money towards retirement and savings.

Hope you enjoy this i guess

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Own a car and have savings, but thanks dad ;)

daniellilley 0 points 7 months ago

I just really don't find the point in spending 18k.

mjcallisonjr submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

No point just a passion. Beauty of it being my choice and not yours :).

7k is what I had in the back of my mind.

That will be with 2x1080ti Rampage VI Extreme and 7980xe and all water cooled etc. Prob have the ram that is in this build I am going to use the 64 gb ram in my personal rig.
