PS: Why did you go for this MB, was it just for the looks?
TIght and fresh
Hammer doubles as a headphones stand :D Nice build, nice pictures!
Awesome build! How did you attach the reservoir to the case?

Thank you again for helping out, my friend! I got everything from Barrow down to the bending tools. I was thinking the same but just wanted to make sure. So I got PETG tubing OD 12mm / ID 8mm (PG1208-L) and compression fittings (TFYKN-T12). Somewhere I read that the thicker walls are actually better but don't remember where.
Are you playing on 1080p locked to 60 FPS?
I've done the same in the past, find a nice part and build around it, so I know the feeling :)
Those cable extensions look very nice, which ones did you buy?
Nice build! Can you control the RAM RGB from your motherboard or do you have to use G Skill's software?
Thanks a lot for the article and the advice. I want to go quad channel so I will be looking for a kit with 4 modules, preferably 4GB or 8GB each. If I can find some at good price I may buy another kit in the future, I have a problem with empty RAM slots LOL :)
Again, thanks for the detailed info, I know it can be a pain sometimes to answer the same questions again and again ... Cheers!
Okay, but will I get a benefit from buying 3200MHz module if the processor supports 2666MHz (according to Intel's documentation)? We are talking mostly about gaming and daily usage for now.
This build is just something else, very original in every aspect!
I'm so hyped for this case!! Be sure to repost when you're done with the custom loop :)
After all I chose the Lian-Li case and possibly will be ordering everything tomorrow. I also chose Ryzen 5 2600 and the ASrock board, should be enough to replace a Dell laptop!
No I haven't, thanks for adding your comment! It looks pretty slick actually and it's a good option, will research it. I now remember there was a featured build of such case, heavily modified.
Thank you for your time and your thorough answer, this is why I love PCPP!
I've never built in a small factor case so there is a lot to learn. I kinda don't want to be considering cube design cases at this point since they are bulkier and more difficult to drag around.
I think AMD will server better in this use case since what needs to be run is Visual Studio and couple of RAM hungry VMs. I was considering 8700K because of the high core count but it's notoriously bad on dissipation. I've built lots of Ryzen systems and they are doing quite good for this kind of use.
Basically I wanted to avoid buying a new laptop since external screen is used and was looking for a similar design that will allow easy transportation but also more powerful hardware.
Why is that, is it because of the distribution? I thought the extra space for the missing graphics card will be useless but maybe it will actually help with cooling down the CPU? I think it will be easier if I go AMD in that case.
I don't want a graphics card at all, use built-in graphics, or maybe something like GT 710 2GB low profile to unload a bit the CPU. As for the CPU cooler I was thinking Noctua, not sure about the exact model.
You should also mention your ambient temp, what is interesting is the difference between both (usually called delta) :)
I was also referring to sleeving the cables on those fans. Good job!
Great build! You seem to be a Singularity fan :)
Seems that almost all his parts are by ASUS, maybe this is why?
For me personally, the campaign is the greatest I've seen since Half-Life 2. Also, it turned out to be the first multi player I've gotten into ...
Fast paced shooter? Try Titanfall2, you can get it through Origin Access - just pay one month for a few bucks and try it out. There is also a free demo but single player only.
Actually you should be happy that you didn't get the EVOLV case as those cards would be choking in there :) Awesome build!
This, plus you can get it pretty cheap right now on all platforms.
Maybe because they were pitching them as MX Speed and not Silver. Looking at mine they look white :)
It was temporary, Corsair had them exclusive for six months.
Great build, one of my all-time favorites here! Maybe you hear the bottom fans because they are horizontal?
I just finished building something similar, but haven't posted it yet :) Why did you flip the PSU?
I also join myself to the requester list. I see this has been asked year and a half ago, and I'm wondering why there is still no progress? Language barriers? Too much hassle? Or maybe Spanish sites thought there is no need to integrate with a "US only" visited website?
It would be great if you put a date alongside each update. :)
You can only get them for the R1. But as Slim said, on the other models (H5 and H7 for example) you can pop pout the plastic top and spray paint it. I may do so with mine one day :)
Nice job! I love orange :) Can you set the colors on the Matrix the way you want to?
I would have contacted the motherboard manufacturer and ask for help. On a side note, I would have gone with an ASUS WS motherboard like the Z10PE.
But as other people have said, try Windows first to rule out OS compatibility problem. After all, you have tried to switch pretty much everything except your motherboard and CPUs.
Good luck, looks like a tough one!
Thanks! Broadwell-EP should be supported too, I assume?
Nice! Do you have the actual to-do list published? I have some other ideas and would like to check if they're on it first :)
