Description

This is my primary gaming and photo/video editing rig. Upgraded from a i7 4770k system. The Sata SSDs have been changed since the pictures where taken. System runs almost silent, and whispers under load. Extra power in case I go SLI in the future.

that PSU is so ******* overkill.. Nice build though

Lmao holy **** it is, I didn't look until I read this. Even an 850 is good for 1080 Ti SLI.

But you're right on both points.

I got it as a good deal from a "accidental purchase" a friend made and they didn't want to return it. lol

At least if I go dual 1080Ti, I won't hurt for power.

at least if you have x6 1080ti in double 3-way SLI, you wont hurt for power....lol

At one point I was gonna use it for a server, with a ton of spindle drives, but decided to just stick it in this build for fun. lol

Well, as long as you didn't pay $440 for it then I guess it's not so bad! Haha

Where did you get the decals made? And are they just big stickers?

I got a new vinyl cutter (Cameo Silhouette) and wanted to test it out.

Very nice looking rig. I especially like the cable management on the backside, it looks fantastic! I was already planning to redo mine, but yours has inspired me to get right on it tonight when I get home lol. +1

I like doing cabling in new builds. Put on some music and just chill. Fun times.

Amazing build! I love the red & white setup. Check out my Ryzen build -> https://pcpartpicker.com/b/kY9J7P my next one will consist of a custom loop.

Also, your cable management is sick!

Thanks! I'm not completely happy, but when I finalize some other parts, and pick a sleeve, I'll probably custom make all the PSU cables (I have the tools) to get it more dialed in.

Also, nice build! I love the tempered glass stuff, but it seems like it would just collect dust, lol.

are those decals or painted on? this case is fantastic. very nice interior as well, looks like it could power an Imperial military campaign deep into Stormcloak-held territory. +100

I've been learning to use a vinyl cutter, so decided to personalize the case. Thinking of going with white/red sleeved mobo/pcie cables, idk yet though.

  • 24 months ago

personally id say just go white. The staggered colors are frankly cliché and clean white looks nicer. Or better yet, following the Imperial theme, gold cables, an ode to the touch of gold on Imperial uniforms and armor. If you see my completed build, while I've upgraded past that, the case remains the same. It has a Princess Mononoke theme, with vinyl decals as well. yours are honestly impressive, safe to say its one of the sharpest looking cases ive ever seen.

Thanks! Now I just need to decide if I'm going to sleeve everything myself, or order premade... lol

  • 23 months ago

premade is pricey but usually worth it if its from the big names, there are some nice quality and colored cables out there. I like EnSourced the best imo. If I wanted custom vinyl decals like the ones you made, would it be hard to find someone around me? or would you be able to make some lol

  • 23 months ago

I had looked at EnSourced. Didn't realize they did custom for Corsair, not just Extensions. I'll have to check them out again.

I would check Etsy for people who will cut whatever you want. If you are near a Makerspace, they may even have the tools and people to customize whatever you want. Other online shops charge "minimum order costs" and such, so I'd avoid those.

What sort of settings did you use to reach 4.0GHz on your 1800X? I'm running 4GHz with my 1700X but idle temps hover in the 30s.

  • 24 months ago

I idle 35-40c, which I feel is just fine. Even not OC it's 60c under load. I'd have to check the specific settings, I used the Asus utility to find a good stable OC automagically.

Great build! RAM seems a little underkill comapred to some of the other parts, but more or less a good build. Not sure about the Skyrim theme tho, I always preferred Morrowind..

  • 24 months ago
  • 1 point

I def enjoy Morrowind. I've had many more hours in Skyrim though. Original plan was a Witcher 3 theme, but scrapped that.

The ram is... a tough choice. Since it's ryzen, going with dual 16Gig (single rank) dimms is about the best I can do without sacrificing speed or having to mess with OC ram. My old system has 32GB, and I'd love to get another 16GB for this, but I'd lose a chunk of the overall RAM speed by populating another 2 slots. I may eventually...

  • 24 months ago

I also have more hours in Skyrim, considering its the bigger game, but I just can't get myself to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Morrowind (or Obilivion / Daggerfall for that matter). Its just that all of the actual quests were just fetch quests, and the dungeons were repetitive. And the fact that the quest marker told you exactly where to go, it just made quests a hassle.

  • 23 months ago

I've done a lot of modded hours. There's a lot that fixes some of the glaring issues and makes it more immersive. Kinda like FO4, but I quickly got tired of that.

XMP RAM are just binned sticks, most can go higher than advertised speeds with no issues. I've got "2666" running at 3000MHz and I've overclocked the cheapest Micron sticks you can find to 2666. Just takes a little tweaking and trial and error.

  • 23 months ago

I'm getting close to 2666 with some auto OC settings. Trying to figure out if I want to attempt 32GB and the challenges that come with it. My older i7 4770k system has 32GB, but it's being moved to a server now.

Maaan nicely done! I want to get a AORUS 1080 but video card sag is strong with this particular video card. Very nice setup tho!

GPU brace. Not tacky looking, sturdy, easy to install. And only 16 bucks.

I highly recommend it. Worth every penny in my opinion.

I see the PSU shroud doesn't cover the whole thing. Did you pick the name from the anime series mobile suit Gundam age?

  • 24 months ago
  • 1 point

This case has a 2 piece shroud. When you've got a super nice PSU, why not show it off? Haha, I did the same.

  • 23 months ago
  • 2 points

Yeah, I wanted the PSU to show. Though, I think I'm gonna put some vinyl (black) on the top to cover the sticker.

True enough

Name is just the scheme I keep with most of my systems.

My previous build is in a Corsair 540 case (the big cube) and it was CubedWolf. Though with this case, the Skyrim theme and the hold logo (though its a malamute) works for me.

you have negative air pressure in your case. remove the fan in the back, rn more air is being exhausted then taken in

well the exahust fans at a lower rpm than the intakes

  • 23 months ago

This has been a bit of a conundrum for me. I DO keep the front fans at a medium RPM and the top and rear are basically idle (lowest speed without stopping).

I moved the front fans to the inside of the radiator to give more direct airflow over the video card. I am considering doing a push/pull to help.

Otherwise, temps are good and not too bad with hotzones now.

On that note though, there is enough "mesh" area in the back, it will be hard to get a true negative pressure as there's plenty of holes. Not saying it's going to be a high 'positive' pressure or anything either.

yeah im just glad that your conscious about it! :) btw, would you give me feedback on my Clear Dragon build? It's my personal build not my friends so I'm constantly thinking inexpensive or good ways to improve it

EDIT: why did my plus turn into a minus??

  • 23 months ago

lol. I gotta still see into the case. I think it's a good balance. Honestly, the window 'brand logos' where just to see how well they would cut. Turned out pretty good imho.

Vinyl cutter and some vector packs of the logos. The font is the dragon font from the game, and I translated "white" and "wolf" so the text would be correct.
