Description

This build is named after the demon King of the same name from Yu Yu Hakusho the anime/manga. It is an all around build for gaming and content creation. I hadn't planned on this system being liquid cooled or I would have chosen a different case. All the liquid cooling components are EK brand. The flex tubing and coolant is from Primochill. The primary components were bought at the end of October last year and built as an air cooled system so the prices are set to reflect the costs of components at that time. I haven't tried any serious overclocking or stress testing yet but have boosted the memory up to its 3200 mhz rating. I will continue to update and edit as time goes.

Update One-

I have had to take out my liquid cooling loop because the Primochill Vue fluid I was using left a significant amount of residue inside my block, pump, reservoir and I will assume in the radiator as well. Had to switch back to air cooling for now. I will be changing my case to the Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic soon and will get a new reservoir and tubing to get the loop back in order. I also upgraded to 1080 Ti from the 1070 and also got a 1440p monitor.

Part Reviews

CPU

This is a quality cpu. It is great at multitasking and isn't too bad at gaming either. I haven't tried overclocking yet but I have high hopes for it!

Motherboard

Awesome Motherboard. This thing has tons of features. Lots of fan headers, RGB for days and lots of options for adding in storage and add in cards.

Memory

This memory is more than enough. High quality and fast. If DDR4 prices drop I couldn't recommend it more.

Storage

This was my first build with nvme and I was blown away. I use this for my boot drive and I couldn't be happier with how fast it is.

Storage

Pretty standard ssd. I have always gone Samsung for my ssd storage and haven't been disappointed yet.

Video Card

Very powerful and very quiet. This does everything I need and much more.

Case

If you want high airflow and want lots of storage options, then this case will provide all that you need! It is very heavy but has two handles that make it a lot easier to carry around. I wouldn't really recommend if you want to do liquid cooling but it can be done!

Power Supply

This was the first time I used EVGA power supplies and it has been doing great work the whole time. Couldn't recommend it more! Decent headroom and the included cables are black with mesh around them so +1 for no rainbow cables!

Monitor

Got this on amazon as a refurbished unit. Only has one very small spot on the screen where the pixel is very lightly discolored. Other than that this monitor is absolutely amazing. Couldn't recommend it more.

When did you buy that 1070? Cause that is a very sane price for one, considering current prices.

I bought that 1070 back in October, not too long before the 1070 Ti was announced.

Is this a boss from the end of the level?

Not sure what you are meaning but the character is near the end of the Yu Yu Hakusho series.
