Sure haha, it's from IKEA. The table top is called "ÖVRARYD" and the underframe is called "BACKARYD".

Primochill Vue was alright at first, but you're right, it didn't end up lasting. After a month or so, I noticed it was caking onto the sides of the tubing in some areas, so I'm back with distilled water for now. Blue fluid was nice for the pictures though, haha.
Sorry for the late response, but yes actually, two of my DIMM slots (B1 and B2) stopped working. I'm not quite sure when, because I didn't notice until I saw task manager reporting 48 GB of RAM. I've yet to diagnose why, but my guess is a damaged socket pin, so probably my own fault. Otherwise, I've had all 8 slots working perfectly fine in the past.
None yet, but I'm curious what problems you've had.
It's funny, my G703 formed an issue where the scroll wheel would send the opposite signal every few scrolls, even after a firmware patch designed to fix it. So I believe you when you say Logitech mice can have issues. I've replaced it with a G903; so far so good.
I did indeed, the extra two 140 mm fans are hidden by the front cover.
Devs of PUBG haven't put enough effort into optimization, so no one can play it on high graphics settings without major lag, even with a great GPU.
Yea, that would work. I have fans on both sides of the front rad in a push-pull config, using what you described. I would flip the rad upside-down though since the tubing coming out of the top would still conflict, even without the fans on the inside.
Will do. Vue does have some high expectations, hopefully it won't clog up.
Sorry, but in the software development industry, you can't always have that kind of bias. I have to use Windows, Linux, and macOS interchangeably.
I do quite a bit of gaming on it, but also use it for Photoshop, Illustrator, some video editing, and running local dev servers. VMs every now and then. I actually rarely write code on it nowadays, that's my Mac's job now (I know that'll make someone cringe).
I think 30mm thickness is the absolute max if you're using the built in holes to mount the 240mm rad on the front of this case (at least for the rads I chose). However, there's about 30mm of clearance under the front rad in it's normal position, so you could probably get away with 45mm or 60mm on the top if you drilled some custom holes in the front.
Thanks - I didn't think I'd need the extra two cores for that price jump. Although it would've been nice to have more PCIe lanes for the two video cards. I'd probably spring for one of the i9's if I was to redo the build.
Sounds like a fair trade
Thanks, the cooling in this build is fantastic. (ignore that)
Let me know if you want any of the original size photos; I cut them down a bit to upload on here.
Yea, guess I'm a fan of Logitech. I used to use a DeathAdder Elite (lol), but wanted to go wireless, and so far Logitech is delivering. Thinking about trying their PowerPlay wireless charging mouse pad.
At the time I bought my first gaming x, I wasn't planning on doing custom cooling, and I suppose I wasn't too worried about the color scheme. More concerned about fan noise. Soon after, I bought another gaming x, and then decided I had to liquid cool them because of the high temps. I lucked out because there happened to be water blocks available for these cards from EK where I could keep the backplates on. The red portion of the cards ended up getting removed anyway.
Used to be a black/white/grey MSI SLI bridge, but I decided it was too bulky and cheesy looking. I think the EVGA one looks the sleekest out of the limited choices to begin with.
Indeed, perhaps I should rename it?
THANKS, glad to see a fellow Mac user!

Ah well, my previous version was very quiet to my standards. But I have to say with the tighter fit in this case, and with the tempered glass panel, it's not nearly as quiet as before. I think the trade-off was worth it though.
Thanks, I got pretty lucky with how the parts fit.
LOL so true
Thanks, these are custom cables from Cablemod's online configurator. They let you chose the "pro" option for certain cables types, where you can add any number of thicker combs like the ones I had included, made of either plastic or aluminum. Mine are aluminum with a silver finish.
I need Xcode to develop for iOS, but also I've yet to see another Windows-based laptop match the quality of the trackpad/gestures of a Macbook Pro, which can make or break a laptop for me.
Thanks, Canon EOS 80D if you're curious.
Indeed, with RGB cables and fan controller too.
Thank you, I appreciate it. Network engineers must have some serious cable management to do, haha
Haha, now I notice it too, I need to fix it - we can blame MSI for installing it that way
Hehe true, I'm happy as long as I get 60 fps
Thanks for checking it out!
I would definitely test them yourself, because you might have an even lower tolerance for noise than I do. Aesthetics-wise, I must say the ML pros look pretty sleek though. Too many tradeoff decisions to make!
Oh man, you removed the optical drive bays off the 750D right? Such a cleaner looking job than mine; I had to obscure that portion of my case in photos to hide the jagged metal edges. Nice build overall.
Huh, you're right about the specs on paper. Motor/bearing noise is one of those things manufacturers usually don't mention. I was going nuts researching whether all PWM fans make a ticking sound, and that's when I came across the ML pro series. Realistically, they don't have 0 mechanical noise, but are quieter than Noctua industrial fans, sitting about 2 feet away. I can't claim much else; I'd need to test the Enermax you mentioned. But there also comes a point where it's impossible to overcome the humming sound as you push air through a rad, so depends on the use case.
Nice builds btw, thought I recognized your name from the home page haha
lel, I can imagine stacking a bunch of extra fans in there just to fill up the empty space
I might just redo the tubing between pump and reservoir then. Been eyeing Primochill Vue coolant for release, so I'll probably do it when I get my hands on that and drain the loop; kill two birds with one stone.
Sounds like a pretty good idea. Securing the pump would help with the vibration when the it runs at high speeds. Do you think that plastic would be stable enough? Guess it depends on the orientation it's printed (layers), but would also need to be pretty thin. That bend at the inlet of the pump is pretty tough to work with.
Heh, well there's a story behind that pump. After two frustrating Amazon orders, both of which were missing the mounting brackets, I got EK to directly send me the mounts for free. Problem is, the loop was already built out by the time I received them. I didn't account for the fact that the mounting mechanism would add about a centimeter of height, so I ended up abandoning an attempt to install them; the bends would be a little too tight and I didn't want to drain the system a third time.
So yes, the pump is just hanging out loosely in there. Need to remember to fix that next time I do maintenance.
That would be really cool...but there are so many other awesome builds lately on PCPP
Thanks, yea I'm definitely thinking about a custom CableMod order...
