Lian Li PC-011 Air Hardline Build (Project Hydrocarbon)

by Fumanseano13

Description

This is my first hardline build. As you can see I stuck with simple bends and used fittings to make things as simple as possible. The build has a delidded 8700K clocked to 5.2ghz @ 1.36v with an Alphacool Eisblock XPX water block. The water block on the 1080Ti Strix is the Phanteks Glacier RGB. The reservoir, bracket, and D5 pump are from Singularity Computers. I used all Alphacool fittings and tubing. I am running two radiators in this setup. One behind the res (Alphacool XT45 360) and one above the motherboard (EK PE 360) all being supplied by Corsair ML120 fans. The coolant is Primochill True Opaque Gray. I hand made the custom cables to length using MDPC sleeving and wire connected to the Corsair hx850i power supply. I also wrapped the top rad in carbon fiber 3m vinyl to help balance out the color scheme in the build. I am very pleased with how it turned out. Just finished this build today and still have not come up with a name for it yet. Hope you enjoy! Any suggestions for a name for this build will be appreciated, I'm having trouble coming up with one.

When did pc building become art?

rocketracer111 1 Build 4 points 5 months ago

Always have been. But there are people taking a more passionated approach than others.

why that mouse?- why

nice job though! ( i can't do hardline water cooling)

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

The mouse is the Swift point z, it's the most versatile mouse out there it has tilt and yaw functions so it can convert into a joystick for playing flying or driving games. I liked the idea of having a joystick and mouse in one so I didn't have to clutter up my desk with more gear. It's great for the tilt functions on pubg also

Are u really using G.Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZRX ? If yes it's advertise as Amd compatible ram unlike G.Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZR, are u able to run that at 3200mhz on Intel motherboard as it advertise it's for Amd compatible motherboards

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

No it's c14 3200mhz, I wasn't going to search thru all the varients of trident rgb memory. I just found the kit with the correct speed. And it's actually running at 3666mhz @1.55 with slight timing changes

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Also just because a kit is "AMD" compatible does not mean it will not work as advertised on Intel's platform. AMDs ryzen platform is much more sensitive to memory and timings than intel. Pretty much all of the c14 kits, which are Samsung b-die, are recommended for ryzen but are great for intel as well

Hi,The ram model you added in your Part list is G.Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZRX and it's has C16 3200mhz not C14 3200mhz. Can you please confirm me that The Ram model you r using is correct which you enlisted in your Part list.I just ordered this same ram model which you enlisted in your Part list ,it's will be very kind of you if you justify that this part list's enlisted ram model working fine with your Z370.

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

It is supported by xmp for intel according to g.skills website. I mistakenly picked that ram on my parts list. Mine is 3200mhz c14, but the kit listed will work on intel as well.

That moment you come back and realize the typo but it is too late to edit.

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

Lol thanks for the comment, I knew what you meant

DropEm2k 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Very Very clean build, im thinking on getting a 1080ti, do you recommend this one, or maybe and evga?

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 1 point 5 months ago

It depends. If you're going to keep it on air the Strix performs great, mine never got above 60c while gaming. However if you're going to water cool I'd go with the any of the EVGA cards they all will all perform fairly closely depending on the silicon lottery and evga does not void your warranty for removing the stock cooler like Asus does

Very nice build & setup. We have similar taste it seems. Same desk top / keycaps / layout lol

Fumanseano13 submitter 1 Build 2 points 5 months ago

Lol yeah I see that, I liked your build in the phanteks case. Remember seeing it a while back

Jugularjudy 1 point 5 months ago

Perfect in every way! This needs to be a featured build!

statorator 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Really like the build, clean. How was it working in the PC-011? Considering it for some upcoming builds.

yousha 1 point 3 months ago

What did you do to getthe keyboard to have a jelly aesthetic?

brightgamer 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Honestly how hard was it to do hard tubing for you first build? Cause I really want to for my first build as well but scared to try lol. Also for a name if you still need one how about Snowflake

Appo3736 1 point 2 months ago
