It was the user's personal GPU that he had used before with an external adapter through thunderbolt
Yeet. He already owned it so that's why we used it.
"I know it's Intel blue"
Doesn't make it any less sexy my dude!
It may not be a full custom loop but in this case I think you're better off with non custom because of the beautiful tubes on AIO coolers and how well they fit the style of the build. +1 indeed!
Sadly true. I only put that because it is the 3k MHz kit and I wanted to be accurate.
It just means that the kit you are looking at has been tested and/or optimized to work on those chipsets.
If you're going to build this and want a more powerful GPU I would wait for Vega to come out.
That was one of the very first things I did lol. And I was very happy that he steered away from red. Only red in there is the wifi card and he wants ethernet more but his EoP isn't working good at home.
As would I but he loved the idea of the Inverse ATX.
Im not 100% sure but I know when I build my personal one I am probably going to go with Corsair memory and an Asus motherboard because I got the mobo from my boss.
Very true. It's a beautiful thing. I will probably be updating this at a future date with a better AIO and overclocking completed and/or a full custom liquid cooling loop.
Yepyep. Half the reason he decided to finally jump on it is because he knew I wanted to build a Ryzen PC but I don't want to spend the money right now.
He already had the 1080 lol. He just wanted the best he could have without going and buying a 1080 Ti or waiting for Vega.
It messes with me too. The company's developer is getting a Ryzen build and chose to use the same case.
I wish I could get a pay raise lmao. Over worked and under paid.
Don't I wish lmao.
I'm not sure if the RAM was on sale, I didn't change the prices because I don't have access to his previous orders on Amazon.
It's his PC lol. It was built for when he is working from home.
Me too man, me too.
God its so beautiful... I wish my PC looked this amazing. I need to get it finished with hardline tubing. Anyhow, amazing build.
Honestly, I absolutely LOVE the build and all you need to make the setup as a whole 10x better is to at least try cleaning up those cables a bit. I'm nowhere near surprised this got featured, it's a freaking amazing build man!
That's a good point, also didn't know you built it a while back. Still a great system!
It's the new CPU type that AMD is releasing likely on the AM4 socket.
I personally don't like AMD cards. I've been borrowing one from my friend but I am going to be getting an EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW.
Did you just build this system? Only ask because Zen will be out soon.
Yeah but I still believe two dual slot cards would have been much more efficient.
Or even a GTX 1060 depending on what games they play!
Love the build but be careful with those coolers. The temperatures aren't as great because the airflow they're getting is immensely restricted. Overall I love the build and your whole setup is godly. I can't wait until I have the extra cash to get my own GTX 1070. I'll probably get a founders edition card or the EVGA FTW edition of it because I'm planning full system liquid cooling.
I envy myself seeing as they aren't mine.
Pretty much. We really could've gotten by with like a 950 and a low end i5 or even maybe an i3.
I can agree to that but seeing as he just bought two more full PCs that I'll be putting together monday and probably posting about on tuesday, he probably doesn't want to overspend.
That's pretty much exactly what I said lol. I thought the 1070 was way overkill for this PC but he got it so I don't mind seeing as it gives me a chance to test EVGA's FTW series card.
Mild as in like just overwatch lmfao.
The PSU was just an extra one we had at work.
Ironically the coworker won't be gaming on it, the boos will!
Oh yes. There's no way I can ever go back to using a mechanical drive for my boot drive.
Yep, I expect to upgrade that anyway and use my current PSU for a smaller, probably HTPC build.
Thank you! It would look better but I ordered the wrong size fittings for it. :(
My whole reasoning behind getting 2 1080s is that I want some sort of experience with SLI. It may seem stupid to you but it definitely isn't for me.
The build looks amazing and I love how you kept it B&W.
Where did you get the desk at?
The TX3 was a good cooler for this for a while, I have recycled it into my work computer now and it keeps the i5-3470 I use cool even with bad airflow. Currently I'm using a stock Intel heatsink made for a pentium and but tomorrow I am getting a bunch of parts in for my PC and will be uploading an updated build with a ton of newer parts!
It is, thank you for pointing it out!
It definitely threw me for a loop when I first saw it and realized what it was being used for.
The Hyper 212 EVO might be on the cheaper side but imo it's a good air cooler. The motherboard is definitely on the cheaper side but it's actually a really nice mobo.
Yeah, when I found out it was a Maxwell based Titan X in an external GPU and mostly used to gain an extra monitor for an iMac I was internally screaming lol.
I have yet to benchmark the system myself sadly. As soon as I finally finished building he had shown up for work so I couldn't benchmark.
When they bought the Titan X it was before the GTX 10 series came out. A 980Ti would have sufficed but it was their choice. It may have even been bought so far back the 980Ti wasn't out.
