Description

Update: thank you very much for the feature and the comments/feedback, I appreciate it.

I made a few aesthetic upgrades to my previous build, mainly:

  • switched to tempered glass case

  • switched to PETG tubing

  • used PrimoChill Vue as coolant

  • installed Cablemod custom cables

The cooling performance didn't lower much after these changes, considering that the airflow is a bit worse and the radiators had to be downgraded. But at least I can keep it on my desk without it taking up too much space.

I delidded my 7820X and increased the overclock to 4.7 GHz @ 1.25V. Seems to be doing alright; temps did lower slightly after delidding.

The previous MSI SLI bridge was a bit cheesy looking, so I switched it out for an EVGA bridge. Also added some more Samsung 850 EVO storage. My previous build didn't have a shroud, so it's nice to have one built in to cover up the pump and the rats nest of cables (shield your eyes).

I'm really happy with the clean look of the rigid tubing; this was my first time using it. Had a couple slip ups - accidentally loosened one of the fittings and didn't realize until the pump had been running for a bit. The blue coolant sprayed all over the cables, but I was able to wash them before staining.

PrimoChill Vue looks pretty awesome, I can't stop looking at it flowing through the tubing. I'm using the cobalt blue one.

I like the fuller look of the Cablemod cables. I decided not to put blue highlights in there since it'd limit my future coolant color options. The neutral black/white/grey scheme allows for more flexibility.

Devs of PUBG haven't put enough effort into optimization, so no one can play it on high graphics settings without major lag, even with a great GPU.

Hello, awesome computer! I also have the cablemod cables, but I hate the combs. What combs are you using?

  • 21 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks, these are custom cables from Cablemod's online configurator. They let you chose the "pro" option for certain cables types, where you can add any number of thicker combs like the ones I had included, made of either plastic or aluminum. Mine are aluminum with a silver finish.

EVGA sli bridge with MSI GPUs?

Used to be a black/white/grey MSI SLI bridge, but I decided it was too bulky and cheesy looking. I think the EVGA one looks the sleekest out of the limited choices to begin with.

This is a beautiful build, love the custom loop. I don't have the time and patience to do one. But I would like to ask why you went with the i7-7820x over the i9-7900x? Me and you both spent about the same amount on our builds, and they are very similar, biggest differences are that I don't have a custom loop, I'm running AIO cooled my i9-7900x, and i bought EVGS hybrid 1080 TI's. Please don't think I'm ragging on you build, because it is an amazing build, I just want to know your reasons? Happy Gaming!

  • 21 months ago

Thanks - I didn't think I'd need the extra two cores for that price jump. Although it would've been nice to have more PCIe lanes for the two video cards. I'd probably spring for one of the i9's if I was to redo the build.

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

That's fair, I did it specifically for the PCI lanes, I also run VM's often so the extra cores are useful to me.

If I were to use 25mm thick fans, how thick can your top 360 rad be in that case before it starts to bump into the front 240mm rad?

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

I think 30mm thickness is the absolute max if you're using the built in holes to mount the 240mm rad on the front of this case (at least for the rads I chose). However, there's about 30mm of clearance under the front rad in it's normal position, so you could probably get away with 45mm or 60mm on the top if you drilled some custom holes in the front.

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

Hm, what if I mounted the fans on the other side, so the mounting bracket thing for the case fans is in between the rad and fan, giving it a "concealed" look?

  • 21 months ago
  • 1 point

Yea, that would work. I have fans on both sides of the front rad in a push-pull config, using what you described. I would flip the rad upside-down though since the tubing coming out of the top would still conflict, even without the fans on the inside.

I do quite a bit of gaming on it, but also use it for Photoshop, Illustrator, some video editing, and running local dev servers. VMs every now and then. I actually rarely write code on it nowadays, that's my Mac's job now (I know that'll make someone cringe).

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry for the late response, but yes actually, two of my DIMM slots (B1 and B2) stopped working. I'm not quite sure when, because I didn't notice until I saw task manager reporting 48 GB of RAM. I've yet to diagnose why, but my guess is a damaged socket pin, so probably my own fault. Otherwise, I've had all 8 slots working perfectly fine in the past.

I have a similar build, but I'm just using distilled water at the moment- I love the look of this, how long does the fluid last? When I look at it online it says it's for display purposes only, leading me to believe it shouldn't be used for too long. How's it been?

  • 11 months ago
  • 2 points

Primochill Vue was alright at first, but you're right, it didn't end up lasting. After a month or so, I noticed it was caking onto the sides of the tubing in some areas, so I'm back with distilled water for now. Blue fluid was nice for the pictures though, haha.

Ah well, my previous version was very quiet to my standards. But I have to say with the tighter fit in this case, and with the tempered glass panel, it's not nearly as quiet as before. I think the trade-off was worth it though.

At the time I bought my first gaming x, I wasn't planning on doing custom cooling, and I suppose I wasn't too worried about the color scheme. More concerned about fan noise. Soon after, I bought another gaming x, and then decided I had to liquid cool them because of the high temps. I lucked out because there happened to be water blocks available for these cards from EK where I could keep the backplates on. The red portion of the cards ended up getting removed anyway.

Be careful with some of Logitech’s mice however! I had a G600 and it just died after 5 months. Got another one and it did the same thing. Keyboards are really nice for the price however

It's funny, my G703 formed an issue where the scroll wheel would send the opposite signal every few scrolls, even after a firmware patch designed to fix it. So I believe you when you say Logitech mice can have issues. I've replaced it with a G903; so far so good.
