Description

Originally planned to do water cooling but went way over budget on incidentals so it has to wait. With air cooling in this case I wasn't shooting for much of an overclock, just enabling the XMP memory profile for now. Recorded temperatures are with Prime95 and Furmark respectively.

can I ask, what will your wife do with a build like this?

  • 58 months ago
  • 3 points

Gaming. I went with the x99 platform for longevity. It needs to be a 5 year computer that will get a few core component upgrades over that time frame.

I'm still on a i7 920, it's overdue for an upgrade but for the work I do I've been waiting to go with a dual socket system. I was going to go with the Grantley platform but once the details of Purley started leaking out I've decided to wait on that platform.

Does having the GPU connected to an extension ribbon affect performance at all?

  • 58 months ago

No noticeable performance impact. The link operates at full v3.0 x16.

You know, I love the build, but the cost of the case and the fact that you can only run 1 video card in it, kind of kills it for me. I'll never understand why they made versions outside of the mITX format.

With a reference card you can use two GPU's but would definitely need to be water cooled. I am planing on a GPU upgrade, possibly next year, when the Pascal GPU's get to market in the $600 range. I'll be doing a custom loop, similar to this layout http://ggflan.com/lian-li-pc-o7s/, but I'll set it up for dual GPUs. The Strix card will go to my computer.

Where did you hear this ? I've never heard such a thing... I thought they were pretty much top of the line along with the Maximus and Formula boards...

i concur with Growliff1234, they are top of the line boards with great overclocking. They only difference is that sabretooth boards are more stable and reliable

The PC-O7S says it supports coolers up to 85mm. AXP-200 is ~73mm I believe... How much space do you have with the glass installed? I'm hoping to squeeze that cooler in the PC-O5 which says it supports up to "about" 70mm tall coolers...

I'd have to measure to be sure but visually it's close, looks like about 15mm of clearance. Looking at the PC-05, depending on what CPU you're looking at i would lean towards just doing a 2x120mm AIO cooler. Given the thermal restrictions I'm having with the AXP-200 I wish I had just gone with a AIO for now and done the custom loop later.

Your wife has now a really beast of a pc. Love it! Really nice build. Cant wait to see what you do in the future!

Hey i was wondering if you removed anything that was to right of the graphics card?

Im trying to get the same case but the specs say the card cant be longer than 310mm but my 980 ti is 315mm.

Do you think you could fit 5mm more into the gpu slot?

I removed the 3x3.5" HDD cage that's there. Without it you can still mount drives behind and/or on the front of the motherboard tray as well as an additional drive where the slim optical drive would go if you don't want an optical drive.

Really considering using this case, with this exact GPU. It is a real beauty but quite expensive if it just going to end up baking my GPU. Have you had any trouble with heat with this case???

  • 49 months ago
  • 1 point

No heat issues, although with a quiet air setup the OC is limited.

hello, very awesome looking build!!! Got one question do you have a link for that ribbon cable you used for the GPU?? I need this kind of sexy in my life!!!

  • 49 months ago
  • 1 point

The cable came with the case but you can buy them separately, PW-PCI-E (300mm) and PW-PCI-E38-1 (380mm).

1 problem i have noted with this case is the airflow. if the psu is blasting hot air out the top and the fans at the top are sucking air in then there's going to be a confliction. did you solve this in any way? the other question is what made you go with that particular disc drive

How is the clearence of the CPU cooler with the RAM?

It would match my new build so damn well.

Nice build. +1 from me.

Yeah, it is what it is. I went back and forth on going with this case. In end I really wanted to do something different. The price is a bit of a premium for what is really just getting the glass panel. The rest of the case is standard Lian-Li, with the exception that it uses screws exclusively versus rivets.
