I feel you! lol I wanted a phanteks case, everyone is using the evolv.... but i wanted something bigger and more grandiose and not the general "look i have a custom loop evolv atx tg" so mine is on the way, best thing is, it's the gray one which only ONE person on pcpp has lol :D.
Overall, your build is amazing, and an inspiration for my upcoming one!
I always wonder how the temps are in this case as it has like zero to no airflow lol, how are yours?
Can you actually reach 3200 mhz on ram?
Thats's one expensive vacuum cleaner! For reals, put your pc on books or a wood plank, or your psu will get dusty af
Nonetheless its a pretty decent cpu, apart from the massive heat lol! Hope you have some airconditioning in the same room:p
So sexy! But why not opt for a bigger cooler? The case is higher than the node 202 i believe, that one fits a scythe big shuriken.
Please tell me you bough this at least half a year ago? Zen is two weeks away :/
Why not an rgb inwin or thermaltake psu? And if you want to custom liquid cool, use the phanteks/thermaltake rgb gpu/cpu blocks and thermaltake rgb fittings!:D
Did i miss something?
Haha yeah, china is great, anything you want is available, anything from the most awesome led pwm fans for 4$ to the inwin h tower lol! Just not as cheap as the states unfortunately...
Jonsbo takes about 2-3 days for me, then again i'm living in china... but looks awesome, and despite the lack of options for cable management, you did one hell of a job!+1
Why Two reservoir and a single loop?
What if you have to move the pc, do you velcro the rad on the case ?:D
I love the black and blue theme! J/k that blue cable is absolutey horrible! I'll give you a +1 for the blue cable that no one ever uses :D
Well glad to hear that! Seems it works out perfectly haha. Airport security is such a pain tho
Yeah for watercooling you definitely can't fit it:( but depending how you travel it might affect it. If you shove it into the back of a car, then yours shouldn't be an issue:D i just don't think it's convenient by other methods of transportation
Why not go for the silverstone ml09? It also has a handle and is much smaller
Lol my wallet doesn't have the balls, i simply can't afford it if it snaps into pieces, if i could afford just buying another one, sure i'd do it lol
10/10 would haggle again lol rite? great job with the parts sourcing, you might just have made one of the best p/p build on this site! +1
Why not go for the sabertooth? The titanium kind of looks a little out of place tbh, but those ek fans match so pefectly with the hof card
6600K, b150 mobo, why? Hybrid drives imo not really worth it, the difference with standard 7200rpm is unnoticeable unless the same program is used very often and even then it won't make a ssd/hdd difference. Could've swapped the sshd and b150 for a z170? Maybe?
This case has a side window on the right side?
I think this is one of the cleanest flexible tubing runs i've seen in a while, it looks awesome! +1
Well not all games are properly playable with a controller
A 2k computer with an 11$ mouse, get a new one lol!
Isn't it the Inwin 805?(not 850) and is it the infinity version? If so, how are your temps? I heard the thermal design is absolutely awful.
Poor titans.. they feel dehydrated, give them some water! +1
I love your way of thinking! "But only a little more to buy a better one, oh well might as well get a titan x" :D especially props since you're still in school and are able to afford something like this, not many people will be able to, and i'm sure you worked hard for it, so please enjoy it to the fullest! +1
I know the feels of the temptation of gaming while you gotta get **** done lol
Add another fury? I mean you got the juice and I'm sure it's plenty to run your crt television:D
No way it comes near 500w tho:D or is that gpu so power hungry? And yay i love actual budget builds and ones not using the s340(i seriously despise that case lol) +1
Ah alright! Well i hope you will have a lot of fun with the beastie!:)
Lovely story lol! You could also have saved for a better gpu by using a stock fan since you have a locked processor anyway, or something like a small tower cooler, would be silent enough under load as well, and swapping out one ssd for a hdd, so you also have more room for games and it won't really matter for loading times in games that much. On the other hand you can use the cooler for later processors and ssd's are never bad but of course it would look less aesthetically pleasing. Also if you went for a red/black theme why not pick up cheaper red fans rather than rgb? No criticism, cuz you finally got a nice pc now so gratz.;)
How did you update the z170 bios without a skylake chip:o
I think you should upgrade to x99, and a 6950x custom loop cooled, i mean, we wouldnt want to bottleneck the gpu now, right? ;) thank your parents lol
Does the total include all?:o but if so, damn you liquid cooled without spending that much lol
Lol sell the cpu and buy yourself a second computer :D
Sure they cute tho
Did you call it the mini kraken cuz there are tentacles everywhere? But why the small fans? Fresh intake?
You're gonna have to do a little modding for yellow, spraypainting some parts, would definitely look nice
A yellow case, i never see a yellow case here, +1 for the yellow case
Gummyworm tubes and ketchup and mustard cables, the amazing old school way!+1
I believe ek has some mounting hardware, which can be mounted on fans or radiators. So you can mount a pump/res combo on there or i'm sure there is something in the case manual. Also you can opt for a less aesthetically pleasing 5.25 inch res , and i see the bottom has plenty of space, so you can drill a couple holes and put a reservoir bracket there, it won't compromise the structural integrity and you won't see the holes since well.. they are on the bottom.
Bless chinese cases, you see this case a lot here in china, they are cheap too, around 30-40 usd for tempered glass lol, and 5$ for pwm fans! Everything without a chip is cheap. Finally i see someone using one:D+1
Please watercool this baby when you get your vega's.. please.. this case just screams PLEASE MAKE ME WET.. okay sorry for the caps and the liquid should stay within the tubes, but it would be so epic lol:D +1
Yep i'm still puzzled, worst thing is they buy a bad one, they recently bought one without an ssd, but with an i7... pretty much i cringed since they only look at pictures, send email and other stuff grandparents do... especially since the damn thing was way overpriced lol.. oh well, their mistake:D ill just build for other family
+1 for grandma, even though i've built pc's before and they know, yet they still don't let me build theirs... they still don't trust me doing it and rather buy an overpriced prebuilt system lol...
Finaly someone that buys a reasonable psu lol.. i see people buying 1000w+ psu's for 1070ies
In that case, sell it and get another gpu:D
You should've added another gpu, or two, since you got plenty of wattage headroom lol. Unfortunately your cpu can't handle that:/
But why the sound card? Your mobo already has amazing audio:D
Get skylake-e when it comes out and utilize the power you have!
