Description

This has been a long time in the making, I had been planning a new build for at least 6 months, and after being pretty badly hurt in a car accident I felt it was time to treat myself. This is just the beginning of my build, and by no means the completed project, I finished the build last night! But I hope you guys like it! :D

  • I7-6700K Coming from a FX-8320 oc'd to 4.8ghz, this thing is GLORIOUS!!!! I can't wait to see what it can handle!

  • EK Performance 360 LCS I was looking to do a standalone custom loop, and this kit fit the bill perfectly as a starting base, and will be expanded MUCH further later on

  • MSI MPower Titanium I was going for a particular color scheme, and I fell in love with this board as soon as I saw it!

  • 16gb Crucial Ballistix Sport White 2x 8gb 2400mhz This was just a color preference, and I intend on replacing it with 32gb of Corsair LPX White

  • EVGA GTX 1080 FTW This card is a MONSTER, I'm coming from SLI GTX 770 FTW and this single card utterly destroys them!!

  • Corsair RM750x Solid PSU, and great options for custom sleeved cables for later purchase

  • Sandisk Ultra II 480gb SSD I read excellent reviews for this SSD and it has excellent speed, its size is perfect for a boot drive/primary game storage

  • Seagate Firecuda 2TB HDD I've heard nothing but good things about these drives since they came out, so why the hell not

  • Fractal Design Define S w/ Window This case is only temporary until my Corsair 460x comes in :)

PICTURES GALORE!!!! :D

Very cool! Man love the purple! So nice to see a build that isn't red and black.

Agreed the red and Black garbage needs to go away. Same for yellow and orange.

MOBO looks great. How do you like the Titanium? I am going back and forth between it and the
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3 Ultra ATX LGA1151 Motherboard.

Anyway, it looks clean. Thanks for sharing!

It lacks a few features, but makes up for it with a small PLX chip and 2!!!! M.2 slots, so I can run 2 cards at x16 AND have 2x M.2 drives! Not to mention it's damn pretty! ;)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW MAN! I'm loving the colors you chose! Very clean build BUT you got to go hardline tubing man. That would take it to the next level for sure. If you also added pics of the building process, this would get featured for sure! +10

Sadly, no pics of the build, I'm dealing with some serious neck injuries from a car accident. But I'll take LOTS more as the build progresses from here :)

Thank you so much! I will be doing hard tubing once the second 360mm rad and GPU block go it :)

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE. EXTRA PICS!

PLUS, NO RED AND BLACK. **** YEAH!

FEATURE THIS ****

Purple mixed with Monochrome is my next build idea! You sly fox ;)

Can't wait till you sleeve those cables. Get some MDPC-X from Beyond Customs for SUPER cheap.

Glad to see how the SP140 looks like in this build with white LEDs. Was thinking about picking them up and going with a 280mm cooler, instead of the SP120s with a 240mm.

I definitely will be, that's next on the list! Then, MORE PICS! :D

I really love the color scheme you went with and am a good bit jealous with how well that color came out on the coolant.

Nice custom loop! The purple looks great with the white LED fans. Am I blind or did you use just one radiator?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

For now, yes, it's only one 360mm rad. I'll be adding a second, along with a larger reservoir and a GPU block/backplate

  • 40 months ago

OK cool. I was figuring that was a possibility when I saw you had that much room still in the front of the case. Sounds like a good plan.

I was wondering how you got the Windows 10 Pro for $30 ? Also i intend to use this board, how does it run in your opinion? (O.C., audio, strength,ect)

  • 40 months ago
  • 2 points

So far I LOVE this board, the audio is fantastic! Not to mention, it has a small PLX chip(only enough to support the use of the added M.2 slots) AND 2x M.2 Slots. [REMOVED]

He got it by breaking the ToS which is very similar to basically pirating.

Everything is stock for the moment, but I'll pushing some serious overclocks very soon :) I'm gunning for 5+ghz on the proc and a 35%+ OC on the gpu
