Description

Lots of things not stuck in parts list. Things like fittings, tubing, fans, sleeving materials, lighting etc. I sleeved everything myself, 1st time, learned alot.

Straight up gaming machine, not much productivity done on this.

Just got done building this, will have to add more info when I'm done overclocking everything.

I have upgraded to a i7 cpu for streaming.

That case is fantastic!

Color scheme 10/10, Tubing and cables 10/10 and I would bang 10/10

+1 and many more if I could

 
 
PickItApart 4 points 11 months ago

Great build, but time to upgrade to 3 of the same monitors and enjoy.

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

Done! Upgraded to 3x 1440p monitors...

 
 
Zeus [1 Build] 4 points 11 months ago

dat rad...

+1 for sexy colour scheme!

 
 
deathfromup [6 Builds] 3 points 11 months ago

Great sleeving for a first time. Really clean and even heatshrink tubing.

 
 
VeiN [1 Build] 3 points 11 months ago

Nice build! Was it hard to do a custom loop? Thinking about getting into that in the future!

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

Not really hard, now a-days with all the premade parts it's pretty simple. Expensive... but simple.

 
 
UndeadSold1er22 1 point 11 months ago

Great build man cable management is solid and tubing fantastic but one question is that carpet that you are working on?

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

It is, shouldn't be doing it, but I do... I'ma rebel.

 
 
BLC 1 point 11 months ago

Wow, what a sexy beast o__o

 
 
Rakirs [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Beast of a build

 
 
fnapoli [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Damn, those rads are THICK. awesome. Looking forward to the numbers!

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

80mm and 50mm!

 
 
Blizzard [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

That build looks so good! :D

 
 
shawnshibu123 1 point 11 months ago

Beast! But you should of got the hydro-copper evga 780!

 
 
ArrKayCee [1 Build] 2 points 11 months ago

I used to think that too but I looked at some reviews and the hydro-copper is looked down on as one of the worse gpu plates :(.

 
 
SgtTherin [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Hehe cascading monitors! +1 for this beauty

 
 
ArrKayCee [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Wow, beautiful build. It's insane how much you got to fit in that case!

 
 
3mber [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Amazing build! I'm loving the colour scheme & loop design, those radiators are huge! :o

 
 
ZacDaMan72 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

Amazing!!! I have the same case, didn't know the full potential of it until now!

 
 
Bladedrummer [3 Builds] 1 point 11 months ago

That is beast! You obviously were not concerned about budget, why not just toss an i7 3770K or the newer one in there? I mean you did SLI 2 flippin' 780s!!!

 
 
greg252257 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

There's no need. An overclocked i5 will do anything an i7 can in gaming. The only reason to by an i7 would be to use programs that use more threads like video editing. He could easily overclock that i5 to 4.5 or 4.6 ghz. Way more than he needs.

 
 
greg252257 [1 Build] 1 point 11 months ago

But it is a beast :) I'm building a rig right now but I'm deciding on whether or not to wait on the R9 290 non reference or just go with an EVGA GTX 780 ACX. probably going with the latter and doing sli later :) Too bad it wont be this pretty :P

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Like greg said, it was all I needed... Until I started streaming/making videos... so I have now upgraded to an i7 for better encoding!

 
 
Icemanlx 1 point 11 months ago

did you have to make any adjustments to get the cards to fit? I want this case but I am going to get an r9 280x around 280mm long, also how do you hook up LED/CCFL to the case?

thanks

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 10 months ago

The only thing I had to do was remove the HD trays... but as you can see I filled the space with a big ass rad....

But no, no adjustments for fitting cards

 
 
Icemanlx 1 point 10 months ago

so there is no where to put a 3.5 HDD with a long card?

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

I would direct you to a full review of the case for more details, but there are 2 drive cages that hold 3x 3.5" drives. They are normally located located up front where the 2x120 rad is located now. In short, if you don't put that massive rad up front, you can leave one cage in for 3.5" mounting solutions.

Straight up gaming machine, not much productivity done on this

so truth. such honest.

+1 that's seriously nice....it looks like you did some custom electric work on some of your cables....

better be proud of yo bad self....me gusta

 
 
mattvenabuilds 1 point 11 months ago

Hey I have the same card. How was the GPU cooler? Do you need any other fitting etc. for it? BTW Very nice build!

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

I really like this cooler, that being said, I've never used any others, this is only my 2nd WC build, and I re-used one card and it's waterblock.

 
 
dondada 1 point 9 months ago

Can you post a photo of the back of your system and a photo of the video cards installed from the side but looking down at an angle? The build is incredible and is the first detailed example of what I've been trying to piece together for a few weeks now, but It's not clear from the photos how much clearance you have with the video cards. Thanks!

 
 
pencilprince 1 point 9 months ago

there's no available liquid cooling block and etc in canada because all is from US but well is fantastic!

 
 
shadhu 1 point 9 months ago

Did you have any trouble fitting the front radiator?

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Yes.

No grinding or cutting or modding to get it in there, but mounting was a pain.

 
 
jtallant 1 point 5 months ago

Where did you get those cables

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

I custom made these cables, I got the sleeves from Frozencpu.com, and made the cables myself.

 
 
nando14sunny 1 point 4 months ago

what are the temps? :D

 
 
BURK3Y 1 point 3 months ago

Very nice build. What are your temps for your notebook hard drive in the back? Very smart idea buying one considering 500gb and 1tb ssd's are expensive. Looking to go the same route to cut costs if temps aren't to hot.

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 2 months ago

I have a home server that almost all my storage is on, I backup steam games for LAN to the drive, and that's about it.

I don't know the temps, it's hardly used, I run everything off the SSD.

 
 
Jagomezpr 1 point 1 month ago

Awesome build. I assume the red fans at the front of the case were after market, right?

 
 
JesseL [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 1 month ago

All the fans are aftermarket, they are all either Corsair SP (static pressure) on the 'upstream' side of the rads. Or Corsair AF (Air Flow) on the downstream of the rads.

The red lights in the front are actually 2x cold cathode light bars

Things I want to touch inappropriately...
