Description

Just want to say thank you pcpartpicker for the featured build . This sure surprised the hell out of me lol . It really means a lot , thanks again . I also want to thank all of you gals and guys for your nice comments and all the ideas that I got from this site by looking at your builds .

This is my first black and white build ,but still could not to leave it without some colors lol . As all of my previous computers this one is gonna be used mostly for gaming and what ever else I need it for . It feels like what ever and how ever you build it in short time of period gets old lol . I know that the sli bridge is upside down in the pictures and I put it on the right way later on but I was lazy to retake them all , my apologies .

Things not on the list ; Sleeved cables from Icemodz (the best cables I ever had) , and some from CableMod . Gaming chair from Noble chairs , got it from Newegg . Expensive but worth every penny .

Part Reviews

CPU

Great cpu , it can easily hits 5 Ghz , besides that its pretty much like 6700K but since is new model I went with it . .

Motherboard

Great looking motherboard , lots of features that I still have to use if I ever need it . Love the vertically mounted dual M.2 . AURA Sync RGB lighting is really great. You can overclock the hell out of everything which I'm gonna try in the near future .

Memory

Well what can I say, the speed is good . Awesome looking memory , works great with aura software , great RAM overall

Storage

I never test it for speed but it must be better . Hassle free installation and less cables deserve easy 5 stars . I'm so glad I tried .

Case

I am pleasantly surprised with case . originally I was gonna get Enthoo Evolv but it doesn't support Asus ix apex mobo so I got this one instead . I cant say I like it more but I'm ok with this case . Lots of room for everything , great layout just like Evolv plus it supports EX-mobo . Tempered Glass and $99 price on top of that its a great deal for me .

Power Supply

Not much to say about it it supplies power . Its an overkill but it is a left over from previous build so I had no reason to buy another .

Case Fan

I had these before in read color but white is special because you can pair with any other color . They work good too .

Case Fan

Beautiful , best looking fans right now (for me) .

  • 29 months ago

The chair is from Noble chairs and it's $529 on Newegg . It looks amazing and it is high quality product . It's real leather that's why cost so much . To be honest that's the only one I could have it shipped to Hawaii . I tried Dx racer chairs and nobody is shipping to Hawaii so had no choice .

10/10 build; i was looking at that same phanteks case myself and went with the fractal r5 instead. your build has definitely pushed me in the direction of getting sleeved cables for my psu though; normal cables are so stiff and hard to cable manage...what a pain.

i did have a quick question for you; what desk is that in the picture you have all the components pictured? i've been looking for a new corner desk.

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

These cables are really great because they have that plastic feel in it (Icemodz) , the lover gpu have CableMod and they are much softer , still good tho .

This is the corner desk that I actually mean to add some wood tops that I work on to make it bigger . Its kind of not deep enough , only 18" https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NAX23FB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Cheap but base is very sturdy so you can put the granite on the top .

Amazing build! Very clean. I was just wondering how you keep the tis cool? I have sli ti and it literally burned my hand one day running over 100 degrees. Is it fixable without custom looping or is the computer going to be okay running that hot?

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Thank you . I have no problems with it at all . I did try to maximize air flow as much is in my knowledge to do so with the case I have . Push/pull config on intake and 3 on exhaust , doing fine so far . Will se in the future how it plays out .

  • 29 months ago
  • 2 points

My goodness I don't know where to start. Congrats of featured build! I don't know how to heap praise so I'm just gonna list them to make it easier:

  1. Pictures...and good ones! Thank you!
  2. Cable management is A++++++++++++
  3. Very clever fan placement solution for the extra long radiator. I'm assuming you drilled new holes to secure the bottom part of the radiator since you had a picture of the drill.
  4. I'm a believer in the MagLev fans but I love the NZXT fans in the front.
  5. Drool worthy hardware.
  6. RGB lights look balanced and the lighting options at your disposal are versatile.

Well done!!!

I DON'T UNDERSTAND! Why don't you have any GPU sag? I have a 1070 Strix ROG and the GPU sag bothers the Hell out of me.

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

There is no sag for few reasons , Motherboard psi slots are reinforced , the case bracket on the back are different in every case (some are better than other) , Sli bridge help`s too . I don't know if you gonna believe me but sleeved cables help if they are made out of stiffed material . The cables on the top gpu (Icemodz) are really stiffed and they are holding just enough on that one corner . The bottom gpu cables(CableMod) are softer and there is a little sag but gpu is co close to the shroud and I'm gonna cut a piece of rubber and put it under .

A separate question...in your pic#3 the corner table(s) seems quite functional. May I ask where you bought it and how much you paid?

Thanks!

  • 29 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks bro , much appreciated . The desk is from Amazon and it is perfect for my taste . It does have one bad thing do , its only 18" deep and doesn't fit with my other desk . But , I'm gonna buy piece of plywood cut it , stain it ,pant it and it will fit the other desk perfect . The best thing about it is shape and the steal base . You can put a lot of weight on it . And also , its cheap and they shipped for free , works great for me .

At first yes because the holes for the radiator did not match so I mowed it up and drilled the new ones and put the cover back .

I'm getting the 1950x on pre order will be using a 1080ti and the gigabyte aorus x399 novo. Do you know if they will for rhis case? And how are your temps everything looks cramped

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

It will fit . This case support e-atx mobo and I think up to 420mm gpu . I have no problems wit the temperature at all but depends on your cooler and the fans you are using . I hope this helps . Btw if you are not on the budget get Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Computer Case - Tempered Glass Edition , It is so much better looking case . I just got one for my girlfriend and it is wow . I know Its $80 more but its worth every penny and more .

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks for the response Hector. I'm currently on a ~4200 budget. Seems a lot but with the 1950x, x399 mobo, and 2 monitors I'm already at ~2500$. What is so much better about the case that you recommend the 80$ premium? I have not seen either as I have a HAF X case atm and no local PC Store.

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

Well , it all up to you . You gonna be the one looking at it so buy what ever you like the most . We all have a different opinion and that's why you have to go with your guts :) If you buy the case because you like it that is great but if you buy it because you think you gonna save few $'s you gonna hate it later and maybe end up buying another lol . SOOOO , whatever you buy do it because you like it not somebody else . The only reason I got my case is that the evolve does not support my mobo otherwise I would get phantek evolve . Why do I think the phanteks is good is , beautiful , easy to install everything , easy for cable management and did I say it's beautiful

  • 27 months ago

just a question, you can’t fit the odd cage in there with the 280mm radiator mounted at the front can you? it doesn’t look like it in your picture and phanteks website doesn’t say.

  • 26 months ago

I don't think so , because one of the screw holes is covered by the fans and radiator .

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

Nothing special really , that is on idle settings if you are talking about the CAM screenshot . Temperatures are pretty good on heavy load too tho , because radiator have push/pull configuration and be quiet 240mm is really good . I would also say it depends on how low is your room temperature . I set mine ac on 70 all the time and helps a lot .
