Description

This PC was built primarily to game with and some intent to use for content creation and 3D modeling.

Update Open Loop Water Cooling System has been Installed.

I am Pretty proud of myself and learned that patience really is a virtue when it comes to bending PETG.

Don't kill me with the way the fan is at the moment haha. I was so eager to turn on the PC that i totally disregarded it. So for the Time being since i know my PC turns on and works. I am in the process of ordering my full custom water loop from EKWB.

I am going to explain my thinking process while building this Beast.

Originally i was going to use my Corsair 600T Mid Tower case. I modded it and repainted the black case to white. So i bought two radiators from hardware labs. 240mm and 360mm. After a few months of waiting around from the Ryzen to come out. I happen to come across the LIAN LI 011 Dynamic and instantly fell in love. Then i realized, " Damn, this case can hold three 360 radiators. i was going to scrap the idea of using the 240mm rad.

Once my LIAN LI came in i tried to install the 360 rad behind in the other compartment. I only tried to do this to make more room in the front for a cleaner set up. I've seen other builders do this with success. After doing some research i found out they removed the front I/O in order to fit the rad there because its in the way. I on the other hand always use my Front I/O ports for convenience. Therefore, i scrapped the idea of mounting the 360 rad in the back.

So, with the 360 rad installed in the front i now realized i can not fit another 360 rad on top of the case. Now, i am glad i kept the 240 rad. So i mounted that on top with enough room for tubing from the CPU to the Side Rad with no clearance issue.

Update

I wanted to deck this whole case with 360 Rad just for ***** and giggles. I came across a vertical GPU mount and i just knew i had to have it because if i was to put a EKWB Block on it. I would want to show it off. I settled with the Cooler Master Vertical GPU mount. With this installed i am only able to fit just Corsair LL120 RGB fans along the bottom of the case. Right now i have them pushing air out of the bottom, but i will switch it up once the water cooling loop stuff comes in.

Bottom fans have been reversed and is now pull air up from the bottom

Also, if you look at the beginning stages of my build, i had no cable extensions. At the time of building the PC i was so fed up with how ugly the supplied white cables were. I ordered ANTEC White Cable extensions CHEAP! They worked out great without me having to spend a whole ton of money on it.

That's all i have to say about the build for now. Thanks for Reading!

Part Reviews

CPU

For the applications that i am using this PC for, this CPU is more than enough power. Overclocking this was super easy. So far i can crank out 4.3 Ghz stable.

Motherboard

Pictures do not do this MB justice to how beautiful it is. Going through the BIOS is easy enough. OC Tweaker app in the bios is very easy to navigate. Updating the BIOS as soon as i could and this thing has not failed me yet.

Memory

I love just how simple these sticks look. I was late to the RGB scene, but these right here just amplifies how my build looks

Storage

This is my first run with NVME SSDs. I'd have to say i'm quite impressed with how fast these are. I installed my OS on the 500GB.

Video Card

What more can you say about the most powerful GPU in the market today?

Case

I upgraded my case coming from a Corsair 600T case. I fell in love with tempered Glass and this just has soo much desk appeal. There is so much room in this case that it totally hides all wire leaving you with a beautiful set up.

Power Supply

I originally bought this to show in another case because it was white. However with the Lian Li 011 Dynamic. It is completely hidden. 850W is more than enough power to run this PC and all of its future watercooling loop.

Monitor

After using this ultrawide monitor for a while, i can say that i cant go back to standard sized monitors. This monitor makes the user so immersed in the game that nothing else matters. You are in your own world. I would have given it another start if the Hz was at least 144 for the money i paid for it.

Keyboard

Got this keyboard on sale at best buys. I love how this keyboard goes with the them of my PC. Its beautiful with all the RGB customization.

Mouse

Awesome mouse from Corsair. Fits the theme of my build. Love the customization's from RGB to Weight Distributions to DPI Adjustments.

Great build but there is one fan missing!

Thanks Bud. I would say its missing but more like...not there for a reason. If you look closely where its " Missing", there are two holes for the input/output ports for watercooling. I plan on running my lines there, so the fan would be in the way. Thanks for the comment.

Did you use a fan splitter coz you have more than 6 fans as the commander pro has 6 ports only.

you can link 2 Commander pro together using the lighting node pro. With the lighting pro you can control up to 12 fans.

How are you controlling the fans? Did you get a Commander Pro? If so, was one enough?

Yes. i am controlling the fans with the included lighting node pro. Each Node pro you can hook up 6 fans. You can daisy chain 2 of them together which is what i did.

If you used the corsair watercooling stuff it would match better with the ram, fans and PSU. But when you made it that might not have been out idk still looks really good.

Yes. When the Corsair Watercooling stuff came out. I was already invested with certain EKWB parts. I prefer the look of the EKWB personally though. Thanks for the comment.

I agree but the OCD in me was like corsair has watercooling parts that would look brand correct lol, I do love EKWB parts over corsair ones for aesthetics myself and quality but, figured i had to say it.

Are all 4 ram sticks running at 3200mhz?

HAHA! only two of the sticks are actual Ram. The other two are the light enhancement kit. I actually want to upgrade to another 16g. To answer your question, they are indeed running at 3200mhz.

Looking great but.... you have 8 fans for exhaust here. Heard of negative pressure ever? Dust will be a huge issue in your build unless you clean it up at least once a week.

Yes sir. I am well aware of it. If you read the build i described why it is like that. I will arrange it correctly once my waterloop components come in. Thanks for the comment.

I actually did read it and you mention something about "the way the fan is at the moment". That's the only part I find about "a" fan. Sorry, I did not realize this is referring to all fans you installed. Also this and your statements about future plans on mounting rads aso didn't give me further informations about why you installed all fans like this. If this is about aesthetics I'd get it. Is it?

Yes i was referring to all my fans. i explained i was too eager to turn on my pc. But no it isnt just for looks. eventually i want to get it set up correctly. Thanks
