Well done. +1
Remarkably well done. +1
This is very well done, its nice to see a project come to fruition. I think my favorite part is how gentle and casual the RGB is, its not in your face. +1
This is it, chief
nice work on first build, the theme came together really well. You GPU looks like its sagging quite a bit, big ZOTAC cards are known to do that, i would look into a GPU support. +1
+1 for Banu Merchantman
nice build I guess
what you're describing doesnt exist. In a custom loop tubes connect to fittings in hardware, ideally the closest opening in the next part, and continue in a loop. in an AIO there is a very clear one side or the other, and even in the boxes they have little diagrams that show tubes go on top, not bottom. With gravity its easier to push the fluid down and then suck it back up than to push it up then suck it back down. The fluid is being pushed down and pulled down by gravity, then forced back up the tube. some builds it matters, some it doesnt.
look it up
sounds good. yeah i know 80 is safe, its just kinda the first checkpoint of "you-should-be-worried-temps". cause 85C is like ok something's running way too hot or fans arent functioning how they should be and 90 is rethink the game plan. i like my temps nice and cool 60-75C
Everything looks great, its cool seeing these smaller PCs. But it looks like it runs super hot, like >80C in games, isnt that a concern for you? even my 8700k doesnt get that hot
fantastic build. looks like someone was downvoting everyone else's comments, probably to get their to the top, i tried to fix what i could. Nice choice of parts, theme really pulled together nicely +1
better to get an extended mousepad for keyboard and mouse, protects them and the desk
this is a legend. your build actually surprised me, which is a nice change for once. customgtp knows, we've seen some builds!! Congrats on the build and feature, khaznh
Its clean, simple, and powerful - cant ask for more! +1
here i am thinking my cable management wasn't bad, **** dude you knocked it out of the park...! +1
Thanks! This was my first build, its actually an empty case sitting on the floor behind me now. ill post my newer builds eventually
Clearly a lot of care and planning went into this, and the result is stunning. Congrats on your build! +1
This is a nice set-up. I especially like the long desk. Nice build!
It looks really good, the clean setup is certainly to be envied! I appreciate the white/black/RGB in a sophisticated presentation. I just personally feel a more fitting name is out there somewhere
What a gorgeous setup! Just a bit confused by the name! +1!
nice solid loop. simple but effective sometimes works best! +1
thanks!! I put a lot of work into this. But as the description says this computer no longer exists, I replaced just about every part including case, my current build is "Prophecy of Sotek" in my saved parts list
this is what i was thinking! just use a small second monitor inside the case of modded into the case.
I was thinking that too- this build can literally never move an inch, the two separate wings are connected only by tubes lol
haha you've got a great attitude. Happy to help.
I got my Win10 Home as OEM but it came as a disc, I got it on sale but paid for it, its worth it to get an official sanctioned copy of windows.
that's a question for the OP not me haha
I'm glad I read your description, I was going to comment that all your fans were set to exhaust. I would upload the corrected photos so less patient people don't see those and freak out haha. As for monitoring temps, the one I use and ive found to be pretty popular is called CAM, made by NZXT. its very simple and easy to use, and it even lets you control any NZXT light products like the Hue+ LED kit and strips, or their Aer fans. But you can get the free program just to monitor temps if youd like too, I always have it up and I can track temps over the entire session once I turn on my PC, to make sure everything is always working as it should. nice build, and welcome to the PC master race +1
yeah this family of Lian-Li cases honestly should probably only be used with custom loops. It's hard to achieve good airflow for fan-based builds in these.
The orange and blue together look great. Solid parts list with solid performance. Great build.
that's a lovely kitchen
Cryorig R1 Uni is an industrial beauty straight from the future. +1 for that gorgeous hunk of cooling goodness
what's he going to do? uninstall windows and return it? I mean youre right, and I happen to agree. but what can the comment accomplish besides make the OP regret a purchase?
I think most of us got our parts over time as well, I think it would still help to manually set the prices you do know. Seeing the price for the 1080ti as $999 hurts my chest a little, im sure we'd all like to see that you bought it for the proper price of $800 instead! Nah I saw this get featured and knew it deserved it. Some builds look good and have great parts but that's it; custom jobs like this deserve to be featured.
for sure! It's better to create a flow of air than to bring in more air honestly, as long as your intake is good already its better to create the front-to-back flow. Also, you have a lot of room between your front fans and your GPU, you could even add two more fans to the front radiator to create a push/pull, which would definitely help drop temps. front fans pull air in onto the rad, back two front fans pull heat off the rad and into the case, and rear/top fans pull hot air out of the case
that's why we do it haha
could this be used as a second screen, and have CAM up on it?
that's wicked expensive haha ive seen people use much cheaper screens than that. thanks for the reply though!!
your side table makes me nervous. but +1 for nice AMD build
LLs are pretty reliable from what I hear
yeah I was gunna let it slide lol
+1 for the care and level of detail you put into this. Great job, and congrats on the feature! You should manually set the prices you paid for each part in the parts list though so we can get a better idea of what you paid!
Great parts, great look, great build. One thing I noticed, however, is it appears that your rear fan is set to intake and not exhaust. You may have a reason for this, but 90% of the time rear (and roof) fans should be set to exhaust, with the front as intake. The airflow will still cool the radiator, and will also get more hot air out of the case.
plus now you can occasionally get an 8700k for cheaper than an 8600k so why not.
This is a nice little powerhouse build, I like the choice of parts and the thought that went into maintaining temps. +1
I also based part of my newest build off of the video the PCPP did on my case, and I thanked Boy Scout for it personally. The caveat to their builds is they're often just building a practical PC with a standard amount of parts and fans. They rarely use a Powerlink or Hue+ or extravagant fan setups, or other semi-custom parts. Which its totally fine! They just make videos to show practical builds. I've found, however, that while they do know their stuff, so do plenty of other people on here. My first build I messed up my fan configuration and like 5 people called me out on it within an hour, and much less nice than I was lol. but I fixed the fans and my build was all the better for it. Coop is right we all have our opinions, and mine is I would consider putting three more intake fans on the radiator, and flip the top fans to be exhaust. With all those fans you may need a fan controller, but it's my belief that the extra cooling would be worth it.
push/pull is hardly overkill, if it cools more its worth it. Just look at some enthusiast builds with 12+ fans, with wicked temps, they'll tell you its worth it too! I just see a large amount of clearance between the Powerlink and the radiator...if there's room for fans, fill it with fans >:)
Hmm the total price of the build is showing as $0. I know there's two ways to set the prices....maybe manually set the prices but don't list them as purchased? I'd fiddle with it until it shows the actual price. If you even care that is :)
Personally I'd suggest flipping the top two fans to be exhaust, and add three more fans to the radiator to establish push/pull on it. It would increase the cooling on the rad and increase airflow into the case; that paired with three exhaust fans in back/top, temps would absolutely drop. In fact at that point the PC would probably unlock flight mode.
