Description

First time posting a build here on PCpartpicker, so forgive me if I messed anything up.

The final build photos of Benchy McBenchface. This build was done to try something new. A build without a case, where everything would be visible. So much work has went into this. The distro plate alone has taken an absurd amount of time to plan, machine & polish, and I am working on a video showing how everything goes together.

A lot of people wonder where the radiators are located. The build is actually done with external radiators in mind, and I will be showing off the radiator station that cools this thing later on. The hybrid graphic cards actually help keeping the fluid temp down as I run them at low fan speeds at all time where they are barely audible.

Please visit my facebook and youtube (and subscribe if you like my builds :D ) for more pics and videos.

Thanks! I am using the Panasonic GH5, with a leica 2.8-4.0f 12-60 mm lense. You can find full 4K pics here: https://imgur.com/a/HoiU8

This is quite unique, never seen something getting close to this. Absurd amount of time must be the perfect way to describe the effort put into it. And the result is amazing!

Give this man, or woman (cause equality), a feature! You got the "try something new" part right! Not only a custom water cooled bench, but the loop is the bench

A test bench that is also a waterblock. Get outta here.

How do you keep it cool. Cuz i cant see a rad

I got an external radiator setup. But I can actually also run it with just the "radiators" on the GPU's if I disable SLI so only one card is active. Not with splendid temps though, but it works.

The metal looks like the “open bench table” bench and he modified that.

Check his build log, he describes how he made it from scratch from huge acrylic pieces using CNC machining based on 3d model.

You had me at the name, amazing build and well done, the only thing i might recommend is compression of some sort on the barbs like a zip or something. Its not crucial but personally i don't trust just a barb.

  • 21 months ago
  • 2 points

I thought about it, and actually had some cool ones ordered, but I decided against it, as the hoses are so tight on the barb, and the angle they are in means that they will never snap off.

Pics are studio quality. Are you using some big white boxes with lots of additional lightning? Also that custom machined base with integrated cable management and water distribution canals... incredible amount of work. How did you manage to find proper o-rings for sealing?

  • 21 months ago

Please check out my youtube channel, I got lots of other builds like this:D I made the channels so they would fit existing length o-rings.

HOLY S@#% +1 WOW. What a unique and altogether captivating build! This rig looks annihilating! The components, let alone the cpu, are absolutely devastating in performance! The graphics cards look dominating as well! I have one question for you, how the &#$@ could you afford all of this!!?! I mean come on man! The benchtable has got to be the single most beautiful, custom mod I have ever seen a computer built on! The loop is also so so so so sexy! It adds so much more to the build with the loop INSIDE the actual benchtable! The color scheme and overall theme of this rig has me dumbfounded, I absolutely love how every (incredibly overkill) component molds together into one astonishingly beautiful and mind captivating build! Also, the showcasing of this build was exceedingly well done! Bravo!!! Keep up the good work, seriously!

Thanks a million man. Comments like this makes it all worth it.

All of the components are sponsored by the various companies (amd, asus, corsair, ek), so I could use my money on making the custom stuff.

Just fyi I wasn't intending to imply that the listed costs were incorrect for the items, just that the total cost was exorbitant. Good to know that the parts were sponsored.

And please understand, the 99% of my comment was otherwise intended as compliment! Really, that is just a remarkable build!

What more do you want? The only extra things are some EK fittings, and ZRT tubing, and then a bunch of custom made stuff. I made all the cables from scratch with material from pexon-pcs, and designed the acrylic part myself as well.

Ahhh, was wondering why your name seemed so familiar, recall seeing your videos, especially that Project NV one ages ago which is pure sexy and the R40 project which I think saw winning 3D guru contest? Man one of the reasons why I said to myself I wanted to get into watercooling.

Looks like this is just another exceptional build in a long line :)

Absolutely loving the idea built-in pumps (loving it exactly like the rest of the build, haha). Could you, please, tell us more about that? Did you disassemble existing pump, or is it something custom made?

  • 21 months ago

I took some existing EK pumps, and just incoorporated them into my design for the custom made distro block. Check my youtube to see how I make those:D

Haha thanks man, but there is always the slight chance of missing something when posting for the first time on a new platform.
