Hey, I remember commenting on your crazy no-bends build that got featured! Thanks for checking my build out!

Oh man that sounds complicated, but I get where you're coming from. Even just needing two different apps to control your lighting takes away from the ease of use, but hey, in the end, it looks good at least!

HAHAHA I had that same thought - let's hope not! In my mind, it'll be a simple slide in, but ya know...these things never go according to plan...

You can control it entirely through Asus' Aura Sync software - along with any other Aura compatible RGB elements in your build, such as your Patriot RAM and your GPU :)

Very nice! Do you notice the lighting on the back of the monitor at all, or is it too dim to serve as any sort of ambient lighting?

Insanely specced computer! +1! And I love how that desk comes with a custom mousepad that covers the entirety of the desk - wish I had a bigger mousepad now!

I'll copy and paste a response I posted earlier:

I would have done 4x16 for even further overkill, but just as I couldn't possibly justify spending $1300 on a single graphics card, I couldn't bring myself to spend around $800 on RAM haha. I do agree though! If I had a LITTLE more money, 4x16 would have been even better!

And yes, of course all 4 RAM slots need to be filled if we're going for the most aesthetically satisfying build here . . .

Thank you! The PC-011 is actually a dual chamber case, so all the mess of the PSU and cable management gets stuffed into the back - leaves the front with none of the ugliness :)

Thank you! The desk is actually all IKEA parts, a 96" kitchen countertop and two white Alex drawers, along with a custom cut modesty panel and some other small behind-the-scenes support beam stuff. I'd recommend building your own desk, this was both significantly cheaper (total ran me a little under $400) and better looking than any 8' desks I could find, and the best part is it's all modular!

Thanks! And I did get some clear UV blue coolant, but I wanted to see if I liked clear coolant first, so I'll be switching back and forth, most likely as I flush the loop form time to time. As for opaque coolants, lots of reviews have expressed the same idea - they look great, but in terms of long periods of use, they're not ideal as they can gunk up your loop. Great for showroom builds, but for something that'll be sitting on your desk for a couple years, it's best to keep your coolant as pure as possible.

Plus, I just prefer see-through coolant. Looks too good!

Thank you! Very kind of you - and I don't mind at all, I used several builds here, such as PTjutsu's Poseidon 2.0 and XXRAYZOR's Sad Machine as inspiration. Just another reason to love PCPP, spreading awesome ideas to make the best rigs we can!

Thanks, I appreciate it! Wasn't easy, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

The motherboard comes factory from Asus with an EK made waterblock installed, it's a key feature of the Formula series. Definitely the way to go if you're making a custom loop!
