Description

This is my very build. At first, I didn't want to go Full RGB but at the time of the build Floe Riing was released so that's when I decided. Why the hell not?

This build is used for gaming and content creation. I will not overclock so I chose the lesser i7-7700 though it hasn't slowed me down for gaming or for any content creation I've done. I do photography.

Well, enjoy.

PS. Other things not mention here is the monitor I use. I still plan to get one and the plan is to get PG279Q in the near future. Stay tuned!

Part Reviews

CPU

I would not actually call it less than its big bro. I would just say different. But does the work for me.

CPU Cooler

Beautiful AIO. Software needs a little work TBH.

Motherboard

Does the job and has RGB. A good durable MOBO for non OC'd PC.

Memory

These are heavy. They're elegant and expensive. They were on sale when I got them. Don't judge.

Storage

The one that makes this PC blazing fast. Yep, NVME M.2. Installed my OS here and some programs. I have no regrets even if it wasn't the PRO version.

Storage

Does the job. Good expansive storage. Maybe I will Raid 0 one day.

Video Card

The one that makes all the graphics run smoothly. I will only limit my gameplay to 1440p. 4k Maybe in the near future. But this beast can run both so. Get it. Mine is overclocked to 2 ghz / 11,716 mhz memory. I have not experienced any bottleneck. Witcher 3 Ultra runs 90-100 fps.

Case

It would not look good without this case. Very very heavy. Did I mention I carried this through 3 flights of stairs when I first got it? I felt like I lifted a truck. Not very portable. But I wasn't aiming portability in the first place.

Power Supply

Without this I will not run. It's enough power when I need to. Very nice modular PSU.

Operating System

What can I say here? OK.

Wireless Network Adapter

My MOBO didn't come with a built in wifi. So, this little piece gets me connected to my net at 157mbps+ without dropping out. Does the job I think. I am too far from my modem that's all.

Monitor

I waited and waited until this monitor went on sale. When I first used it, I had trouble connecting the DP cable behind the monitor. I wasn't getting any signal at all. Little did I know that it wasn't pushed in properly. Once it worked, what a change of view! coming from a 120hz/60 fps TV. This is glorious gaming.

I was a bit worried about the backlight bleed/IPS glow issue since most reviewers tell horror stories about this monitor. Mine came in with little to none of the above. Maybe because I was lucky enough to get a fresh new stock from Memory Express? Or maybe they have upgraded their QA with this monitor.

Regardless, I enjoy it. OC'd to 165. Every game I play is more than 150 fps except Witcher 3 with hairworks around 90-100 and 124+ without. I am happy. I recommend this to anyone. Do not be scared to buy this beast of a monitor.

Keyboard

I needed a compact keyboard. Cherry red switches were excellent for gaming or for anything I do actually.

Mouse

Lightweight mouse. Good response time and good aesthetics. If it feels good with your hands, you found your mouse.

Headphones

Very, very clear audio. It was the cheapest headset back then but this a top quality material. Clear mic. No complaints at all.

Duuuude, looks great! Beast of a machine too. My only suggestion would be to get some custom sleeved cables.

I have the exact same card running a 1070. I'm looking to upgrade to a 1080ti. Do you experience any bottlenecking? Ive been trying to determine if I should get a 1080 or 1080ti, but can't get a clear answer on the web whether or not the ti will bottleneck our CPU.

Great build BTW!!!

No, I haven't experienced any bottleneck at all. I am playing Overwatch on Epic settings and it runs 120-150 fps. On Ultra, it becomes 200+. It's ridiculous. Witcher 3 on ultra runs on 90-100 fps. Around 124+ without hairworks. I am using a PG279Q monitor. I am loving every single thing about it.

Correction Overwatch runs 150-200 fps on Epic. My rendering was set to 122% (automatic) which should have been 100% only for natural display of 1440. :)

i have problem connecting the Floe Riing RGB 360 TT Premium Edition because the manual is not clear. would you please explain to me how did you connect it step by step. thanks

Pump: 1) 9 pin goes to the controller(black square thing) take note there is an order here from 1 to 5. Refer to the floe riing manual. 2) PWM CPU fan (4 pin) goes to the CPU fan header on your motherboard or dedicated aio_pump refer to your motherboard's manual

Controller 1) connect micro usb cable to controller. 2)connect the other end of that cable to your motherboard's USB header 3) power. Refer to your manual which is the power port. From what I remember it is molex to another 9 pin. But it looks different than the other 9 pin for the fans and pump. Connect the other end to your PSU vian molex.

Fans 1) these are the easiest. Just connect to controller. Take note of the order. 9 pin #1 will control the rest of your fans colors and performance via app if you want to copy color for everything. I suggest not plugging the pump to #1 but to one of your fans either the front or back so there's a sequence. I made this mistake and had to reorder how to plug them in.

Lemme know if it cleared it somehow
