It’s finally Done!!! After 10 months of thinking, building, thinking and rebuilding!! Here is a quick overview of the build, look below for much more details. This build was a lot of new things for me. This is my first time with custom watercooling, making my own psu cables, customizing a case, working with acrylic and attempting record the process with video. Hence the greenhorn name. I have always focus on “bang for your buck” builds and aesthetics was always limited to my case choice. The only way to justify the costs of a custom waterloop of this nature was to view it as an art piece for my office. As such, for this build my goal was a 2160p, 100+fps gaming/photo editing rig that was beautiful before you even turn it on and then let the lighting take it to the next level. I tried to get everything perfect from the parts, to parts I made, to taking photos (photography is a hobby of mine). Forgive some inconsistencies between shoots as it took 3 shoots before I happy enough. My inspirations were caselab cases and the murderbox case and 100 amazing cases I saw on youtube and facebook. I hope you enjoy.

Pics are attached but here is a link to the high rez photos.

Oh, and the case was so big, I had to build a bigger desk to make it look right, lols.

About Me and My Modification

I have been building PCs for about 20 years now. My builds have always been “best bang for your buck” builds with zero thought for looks other than trying to get a cool looking case. Last year, I was up for a new machine and decided to go big and treat myself and went with a 1080ti but only jumped into AIO cooling. See here (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/3NxG3C)

But that build open my eye to all the amazing custom loops and computers out there and it motivated me to want to build something unique and special to me.

I want to build a beautiful monster gaming PC and I want to document my process to share with others to give back for all the great builds others have made. As such, I created this youtube channel to document a noob building a custom PC. I have enjoyed photography for a few years and this is my first adventure into recording and making videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjM4Cqk4BEauNsv9dLDk5ug

You will notice that the earlier videos mentioned the Singularity Spectre case. I had started this build process in February when I ordered the Spectre case. I then proceeded to buy all the parts in Feb and March with the promised delivery time of April. That didn’t occur and the case didn’t arrive until late September. I had planned for a latest and greatest overkill build, but this is still a great machine even with the latest gen cpu and gpus out being better.

While I was waiting for the Spectre, it did give me time to think about what I really wanted in a case. After even more time looking at other builds, I realized I wanted to do more customization of the case vs the single acrylic dragon I had designed for the Spectre build.

This research left me wanting to build a caselabs looking case. I loved the idea of a case with an open and balanced main chamber with the PSU hidden away.

The Build

For cases, the Lian Li V3000 was perfect. Its checks so many boxes.
- Beautiful brushed aluminum on every panel - Subtle but well implemented front lighting - Sturdy, I cut a lot out and its still holding strong.
- To make for a clean front, I needed space in the back to run the watercooling and wires so I wouldn’t have tubes and wires cutting back and forth. The back of the case is great and allows for enough space for me to run a nice loop back there and it still allows me to have the back panel on.
- The bottom allows me to hide away the PSU and allows me to include radiator that shows off the beautiful InWin Polaris fans forward.
- Lastly, I installed a light floor I made from two white acrylic sheets and a clear sheet with RGB lights running along the back.
- To cover up the motherboard panel on both sides, the front panel for the 240 rad, and the back compartments, I used matte black acrylic.
- Making these parts gave me great appreciation for both making parts that look good and fit, but also that can actually be taken in and out of the case. Its surprising how important the order I put things into the case is for it all to work.
- Lastly, I have a MNPCTech.com 480 Fan cover on the bottom, looks amazing, really well made, did a great job of allowing me to show off all of the fans vs the stock bottom piece that blocks a lot of them. https://mnpctech.com/

For CPU, MB, GPU, RAM and HD.
- My last build was the 7700k and a week later the 8700k came out. I thought, not again intel and went with the 7820x. Little did I know they would release the 9900k, so I upgraded to a 7920x. I seriously have to stop playing intels game. Oh well, with direct die, liquid metal, and water cooling, I am hoping to push 4.9. Its happy as can be at 4.8 but need to swap back to water before pushing it.
- I went with the rampage vi because I wanted an eatx for the Spectre case to fill up the case as it looked empty with an atx. Being I didn’t use the Spectre, its actually making this case crowded. If I could have done over again, would have stuck with another asus board. Either way, its amazing in looks and OC abilities are awesome. Seeing an error message read out when I have problems is beyond helpful. The safe boot and memory okay buttons had to be pushed at least 100 times in the last few months when OC. Very happy with the board.
- The EVGA 1080ti FTW3 1080tis are actually from my last build, they work great and OC to 2050hz on water. Not much else left in them.
- For memory, I originally had Gskill 3000 rgb ram pushed to 3200. When they announced the Royal kits I was rather curious for their looks as well as wanting to go fast ram. Doing research, I found that faster than 3200 ram doesn’t help gaming average fps and only a small bump in synthetics. However, I did notice that for some games, faster ram did improve the bottom 1% of fps. As such, I pulled the trigger on a 4266 kit and did some comparison testing. I could only get 4000 stable for now, I guess x299 isnt a fan of much faster. I did a rough comparison for gta 5 and noticed what the reviewers did, the average fps was exactly the same between 3200 and 4000 (109.04 vs 108.52), however, I noticed a considerable increase in the 99th percentile fps (47.33 bs 66.02). Per Gamers’s nexus, a difference of 8ms frame time between frames is where drops become noticeable. On the 3200 ram the difference in frame times from the 50th percentile and the 99th was 12.2ms whereas the 4000 ram was only 6.5ms. So, yes, the ram was a lot more to upgrade, but butter smooth gaming is the goal of this pc and I could justify the upgrade costs because of these results. - Hard Drives are Samsung 970 500g, 970 1tb, and 960 500g.

Watercooling - I went with glass tubing as I wanted a challenge. I was warned against it for my first watercooling loop, but I love how great it looks and how clear it looks with water. Alphacool was decent to work with and I made a couple videos on it.
- Fittings are bitspower, black chrome. They look great, and have been holding strong, so no complaints.
- GPU blocks and back plates are EKWB as they were the only ones available on the FTW3s at the time. Love the shiny backplate to go with the build theme. CPU block is heatkiller pro IV. Looks great and known for solid performance.
- Reservoirs are heatkiller, love that they are glass and brushed metal to match my glass tubing and my brushed metal case.
- Radiators are Hardware Labs GTS. Reviews said they perform amazing with low air flow, and being I didn’t have high pressure fans, they made a lot of sense. Their one flaw is that they are very restrictive compared to other rads. But 2 aquacomputer D5s do a great job to overcome that.
- InWin Fans – look amazing, have the brushed metal look and awesome shiny rim. All fitting the build.

Wiring - MDPC-x sleeving and 16awp cables.
- Cable combs, both the back panel and front cables - https://www.clockwerkindustries.com/

How do you install those rear panel mounts? I was checking the clockwerkindustries but I can't figure out how they stay on..it says you need to drill 2 points or something..could you provide some details?

  • 11 months ago
  • 2 points

They have m3 (or m4, i forgot and its not on his site) holes and I used a flat head version and a drill bit that recessed the hole so it was flush. So its bolted to the panel and all has to come off with the panel. It makes assembly a bit hard, just takes planning.

My God, this is one of the cleanest builds I've ever seen. Every detail was handled amazingly. Is your desk custom made? I've been thinking of building my own and really like the looks of that, too!

  • 11 months ago
  • 4 points

The desk is a combo lumber yard job and my first attempt at wood working. I had wanted to get into wood working and planned to make the whole desk myself and was pricing out wood and the cost for a table saw, clamps, planer, and other tools I don’t have. Quickly added up to more than the cost to buy a desk. That said, I went to a local lumber shop and got talking with their guys about what I wanted. Turns out they do glue ups, which is taking the boards I want, planning flat and square, gluing them together, and planning the entire top flat. Most of this I was comfortable doing but for the final planning as planning an entire table requires a massive machine I would never buy. So, I picked out 4 boards with the exact pattern I wanted and pulled the trigger and got the entire 80 inch x 32 inch x 1.5inch piece delivered to my garage. I then built the box on the bottom borrowing my dads table saw and glued it to the bottom. Then drilled the holes for threaded inserts and epoxied them to the bottom which allows me to bolt the legs on and take them off for moving. Lastly, I stained the walnut with boiled linseed oil and then finished with arm r seal. The legs I bought off etsy. It was a blast to do and I am ready for a new hobby!!.

The reason you can't get your RAM to XMP speeds is because of you using an 8 DIMM board

Something like an X299 Dark would have no issues with that kit, but you add the terrible memory overclocking that comes with extra DIMM slots and you struggle to push the high end XMP kits.

  • 11 months ago
  • 2 points

The goal and look of the build changed with time as I worked through it. If I was starting day one right now, I would have gone the Dark without hesitation.

Oh well, not about to redo all the panels and runs for the change.

You have put an immense amount of effort and funding into this PC and it clearly shows. My vote for build of the year 2019 and it has only just begun. There are a lot of talented builders on this site and elsewhere but I would say you belong in the top tier.

I also have a build that has been ongoing for the best part of 6 months, tough when you work 10hours a day and family take up a good chunk of free time. Probably your situation as well, so you get double kudos from me for completing this build.

  • 11 months ago

Thanks. Yea, the original plan was to take a week off work to finish the build thinking 50-60 hours would do it. Wow, was I wrong. Slow and steady next time, finish the case and then buy the pc parts so they dont go out of date lols.

Totally agree, wish it was only on 2 sides so you can rotate to show just black. But I wanted that shiny reflection from the fans, daisy chain, and brushed metal. So, learn to live with it, after a bit you dont notice it as much.

Best Pc I have sen in months, absolutely oustanding it needs a clear panel on the back, impeccable cable managment. But a 1080 ti in a $11 000 build? My only question, and can we just talk about the image quality and the amount of images he has taken, just outatanding

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks. I had two 2080tis but returned them. Currently the games I am playing are running north of 100fps so couldnt see the justifications to upgrade with the current pricing structure. Ray tracing is wonderful and I am excited for graphics cards that are cable of rending all the light in a game with race tracing (currently they are only doing reflections), but that's some time in the future for hardware and games. If the 2080tis were 20-50% speed improvements at the $800 price point I would have switched but not paying the premium this time around.

Also, the price is a little misleading. It doesnt show that the 1080tis paid for themselves with mining (i know, i know, but free money from my gaming rig is free money), the money I made from selling my last rig and my old monitor to upgrade. Also, this was a lot of fun, days and nights I stayed in vs going out with buddies and dropping $30 on dinner and $10 a drink. Savings add up :)

Hi,

Awesome photos. Some questions and comments. -What is the 2nd colored loop for? I see the green throughout, but not sure where the silver went. -What are you plans for maintenance? Vue is cool but I've seen it cause so many problems -What is the display on the "back' (rear?) of the case? Look interesting. -I really admire your cable management. Well done.

  • 11 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks. The photos can be confusing as this took 3 photo shoots over several months. First time I had grey in the gpu and green in the cpu and I hated all the photos due to bad lighting. Second time I used all green for both loops as I had an extra bottle and I was able to save what I drained from the first shoot. I couldnt save the grey as it had chunks. The final shoot I reordered new for both colors and again grey in the gpu and green in the cpu. So when processing the photos, I picked the best ones and you will sometimes see green in the gpu loop because of that.

The vue was only in the build for 7-14 days at a time as it didnt play nice. But honestly, I wasnt as strict with prepping the system as I knew it was coming out. Its running water right now to clean it and will run clear for the next 4 months as I am into my busy season (cpa) and wont be using it much. I likely will go a more stable pastel with the same colors into the future.

Display is an aqua computer aquaero.

Thank you sir, after seeing so many amazing builds with messy cables I wanted mine perfect. OCD tendencies ftw.

what voltage do you have on the 7920X? know someone with 7980XE 5ghz @ 1.4v (He has litterally 2 480mm rads and a pair of 240s in a case, its fking insane. He has 4 pumps lol and direct die)

lol, glad you like.

I was at 1.375. Honestly, probably could have gotten lower stable, but thats what my 7820x took to keep 5.0 stable. a 7980xe at that voltage is insane!!! Yea, i am direct die and LM. Only way possible to push these volts on this many cores. My temps were the 70s at that voltage so safe there. I might play around it in the future to see how low on the volts I can do 4.8 and 4.9 stable. Just burned out on working on the pc and just binging some video games :)

Thanks you, thank you. New to product style shots and would have posted months sooner if I was better at it. But like all things, practice practice, practice. I did mess up and shoot half of them at around 6800 degrees and half at 6000 degrees (accidentally changed the setting when shooting) and did my best to correct in editing. Honestly had never touched those settings before and learned I have a preference for the temperature of my photos. More to think about when shooting.

What do you like to shoot? Have photos posted anywhere?

This build gives me MAJOR MDPC MurderBox TJ07 vibes.

Before cases were build for prefect cabling and RGB and black powdercoated steel was the thing.

That's what got me into PC building in the first place, so this build just blows me away with a nostalgic rush. Love it.

Honestly I like the back side more because of how perfect the cables and fittings are xD For reference, this is what I'm referring to: https://www.million-dollar-pc.com/systems-2011/murderbox-mk2/murderbox-mk2.htm

  • 11 months ago

You nailed it. Murderbox was on my short list because it had so many thing I love about it. But it didnt tick every box for me and for $2k after the options I liked, I simply couldnt pull the trigger when it didnt tick every box. Part of me feels bad not buying it though just to support a genius in the computer building world. Being able to craft a murderbox level pc case from scratch is my ultimate goal.

I am glad it gave you nostalgia, definitely was aiming for a murderbox vibe.

Oh yea, spent a lot of time drooling over those photos :)

There is a video on the completed build. This actually reminded me I had a couple videos on various parts of the build.

On a full build process, I had planned to when i started. Early parts of the build of putting water blocks on cards, first time putting the MB and cpu together, cutting parts out of the case i have videos. Unfortunately as the build went from being only a week to being weeks to finish, I simply didnt want to take the time to set up the camera and film every time. So i have piece meal parts of the build. I tried to put a video together with that, and it simply didnt work. There would be too many huge leaps forward in the case. I might make a video in a few months when I do a full clean and take it completely a part, and then film putting it back together. Will be much more fluid and consistent.

if you dont mind me asking, how do you do it?

like did you just cover the back, are there wires under the piece of acrylic, is it a thick piece of a thin piece, and how did you connect it?

and how do those cable management combs on the back mount?

sorry for asking tons of questions, but i really want to do this for my future build xD

  • 7 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry, I totally missed this. The back and front panels are matte black acrylic. The back wall of the case is sandwiched between those two and are mainly held together by the pass through fittings for the water cooling loop. There is nothing in between them, no wires or anything. Its 1/8inch thick acrylic.

The combs are attached by screws with flat heads and they are recessed into the acrylic so they dont cause issues with the acrylic being smashed together.

I will try and check back more often.

Where did you hide all the wires bro , wow . Love the clockwork stuff , I have their combs too , really great . I don't like the Vue with EK blocks combo cause its gonna destroy the blocks , talking from personal experience . I switched to Phanteks gpu and cpu block and not a one spot on it . I guess you use Vue for showing only and will change to better liquid for gaming/work pc use . Anyway , exceptional work bro keep it up on the youtube , I like the videos .

What did you use to build this desktop? Amazing build top to bottom!

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

The desk is a combo lumber yard job and my first attempt at wood working. I had wanted to get into wood working and planned to make the whole desk myself and was pricing out wood and the cost for a table saw, clamps, planer, and other tools I don’t have. I was in at the lumber yard looking at wood and got talking and found out that for $150, they would plane the boards, glue them together and then plane the entire piece and deliver. As one piece of equipment would be more than that price alone, I let them do the big work. So, I picked out 4 boards with the exact pattern I wanted and pulled the trigger and got the entire 80 inch x 32 inch x 1.5inch piece delivered to my garage. I then build the box on the bottom borrowing my dads table saw and glued it to the bottom. Then drilled the holes for threaded inserts and epoxied them to the bottom which allows me to bolt the legs on and take them off for moving. Lastly, I stained the walnut with boiled linseed oil and then finished with arm r seal. The legs I bought off etsy. It was a blast to do and I am ready for a new hobby!!.

The desk is a combo lumber yard job and my first attempt at wood working. I had wanted to get into wood working and planned to make the whole desk myself and was pricing out wood and the cost for a table saw, clamps, planer, and other tools I don’t have. Quickly added up to more than the cost to buy a desk. That said, I went to a local lumber shop and got talking with their guys about what I wanted. Turns out they do glue ups, which is taking the boards I want, planning flat and square, gluing them together, and planning the entire top flat. Most of this I was comfortable doing but for the final planning flat of the entire table requires a massive machine I would never buy. So, I picked out 4 boards with the exact pattern I wanted and pulled the trigger and got the entire 80 inch x 32 inch x 1.5inch piece delivered to my garage. I then built the box on the bottom borrowing my dads table saw and glued it to the bottom. Then drilled the holes for threaded inserts and epoxied them to the bottom which allows me to bolt the legs on and take them off for moving.

All in, it was about $1,300 with taxes. I went rather large with it and thick than necessary. Probably could be done for less than $1,000 if it was the normal 6 foot length of a table.

This is your overkill and only 32GB of RAM? I have that much on my modest real life PC and need more for Cities Skylines with over 3,000 mods and assets active to make my cities look as Canadian/American as possible (and I run out of ram during loading so I cannot play it until I can afford another 32gb). At least you are not The Verge and going "all" out but only spending $2,000.

is it just me or does that 24 pin cable look just a little bit too perfect?

What kind of job do you have to be able to fund this beast PC build?

I am a public accountant (CPA) for a second tier public accounting firm. Build did get out of hand for me by 2 - 3 times to get right. If i knew the price going in, I would have probably never done it lols

The build does also include all peripherals, which most dont.

I noticed you have the 4k monitor. How is it because I have heard some people complain about the quality of it due to the hertz being lowered down to about 100 and the text quality being garbage?

I do, i love it. No, its run pretty flawlessly for the most part. When it switches from HDR content to non-HDR content, it does go dark. My first time with HDR, so not sure if thats standard for it to turn the HDF lights on and off.

Text is crisp and clear on all content I have used.

I play Overwatch, heros of the storm, and far cry 5 atm. Overwatch runs at 200fps on 4k, but I am limited to the 144. I see no different between this and when I was on one 1080ti and a 1440p 144hz monitor other than the much better resolution.

Heroes is the same, looks identical but for better resolution, around 240fps.

Far Cry is a much more demanding game and even the 2 1080tis can only push around 100fps. I can turn settings down to boost it, but still a demanding game. I also have the HDR, so thats adding to the stress. I do have some random visual glitches in far cry. I never played on one 1080ti to know if thats a game issue or my set up. Its usually the sky in the distance acts funny. I spin the camera and it goes away. Not ideal, but toss it up to sli life. Excited for 1 gpu that can do 4k at 144hz on all games.

Cheers, James

Thank you for all the information James it helped a lot. I play games like fortnite, Anthem, and Battlefield, and I was deciding on getting this monitor or rather looking at it, but the fact is, is high refresh rates really needed or will 60hz do you fine with games like this?

For these types of game, 100% yes. I have been playing at 144hz 3 years now, and I notice instantly when my fps drop below 100. My accuracy just gets laggy. I am far from good at these games, my 39yo reaction times are far from great either, but I notice. I would say my game play is noticially better from that sub 90fps range to that 144fps.

This monitor has a lot more going for it too. the 4k is amazing, but the HDR is jaw dropping. If you haven't seen a true hdr10 monitor with HDR video, you will be shocked by what it looks like. Image having to squint watching a sunset on youtube because its so bright with an image so clear you cant see the pixels. Its breath taking.

Ok I will keep that in mind, thanks for your information. The monitor sounds amazing. I will definitely be looking into purchasing it.

This is honestly one of the cleanest builds I have ever seen. This has inspired me to start improving my cable management skills. That shade of green looks very clean. GG, this deserved to be featured.
