Description

This is Death Blossom, a Gaming/Workstation that I have been working on since January of 2016. The theme I went with was Black, White, Grey, and hints of Red to keep with the main colors of everyone's favorite Edge-lord Reaper. On top of making the system a bit overpowered for what I use it for, I also wanted something that is near silent while idle and under load. if there is any sort of other noise in the room, the PC is dead silent. The only other thing I have to compare it to is a PS3 Slim (i use it for Blu-ray movies) and the console at idle, without a disk, is mush louder than Death Blossom at full load. Silence and Power, best of both worlds!

This build went through many different versions before I settled on the Overwatch theme using Reapers color palate.

My only issue with the system is the RAM. For one its a little slow at only 1600, where the rest of the system is pushing it as hard as it can. And its blue... Yeah, working on fixing it eventually.

For more Photos and a build log, its all on my Instagram username @ajbd1290. There you an see my older versions, the build itself, and all of my problems and issues.

I have the CPU at an easy 4500MHz just to keep it cool and I don't need a huge overclock on it at the current time. Both GPUs are running 1506Mhz core, 3866MHz memory, with +62mV to keep it stable.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my system, it's my pride and joy! If you have any constructive criticism please let me know either here or on my IG, I am open to all suggestions!

I saw the name of the this and I thought of "The Last Starfighter" which also is a great name for a rig.

Awesome build! One question though, u think that custom water cooling is worth the extra money over aio cooling units? I'm debating getting one or the other for my build later next year

  • 38 months ago

It's more for looks. it's completely overkill on a 1151 platform because they don't get that hot unless you intend to run your gpu/s in the loop. However on the x99 2011-v3 platform a lot more heat is produced which makes watercooling more feasible

You can make aios pretty sweet too. For a first build its what I used.

Looks amazing! I love the power cables you chose and the reaper is a nice touch. Excellent work!

Pretty nice! Really love the cable management, and the reaper figure is great. I notice you've got a lot off SSD, but no HDD. Personally, I prefer it without the red LEDs on, because they kinda screw up the white details, especially on the reaper figure. Looks great though!

Why not just paint the head spreaders black, gray, or white and reinstall them?

Great looking build.

With what tool did you de-brand those riing fans? (Also, great build!)

A finger to peel the sticker off, and a little bit of alcohol to clean the surface off

Just wondering, why the 4790K over a 6700K?

Skylake is out. WTF is a 4790k still going for $333?? This is why I'm not a fan of Intel. Nice build though. Very nice. +1

  • 38 months ago

Yeah I don't get it either. The new amd launch, if any good, may make Intel lower their prices a little bit. Competition is always good for the consumer.

The system is beautiful . If I was going to say any thing negative I would have stuck with the black white and grey wires all the way through the build (get rid of the red and black on the mobo ) have you thought about using uv die and uv lights . In my opion that would put this builds look a out of the park home run .

  • 38 months ago

In my previous versions I did have UV dye. But after about 2 months it started to stain and fog the tubing. When I switch to hard-line, I may go back to UV

HEEEEY gr8 build 10/10 would take at a LAN event.

help me out man, the Thermaltake fans are so cool and cheaper than corsair's AF-SP series fans. Could you pls tell me how to differentiate which of those LED thermaltake fans are Airflow & which ones are static pressure?

I really how they go well together, but i don't want to jeopardize case temps for Aesthetics

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

To my knowledge Thermaltake only has a single set of fans, no sp/af varients. You can look at the fan blades and the pressure rating usually on the box or possibly find them online. These guys are a middle ground imo. I use them because they are super quiet at low rpm, they don't need alot of startup voltage, and when cranked up can push a decient amount of air.

How are those fans?? I was gonna get a few my self

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

Deciently quiet, push a good amount of air (not Noctua quality) and look good. If anything get one and try it, if you like it, then get more.

I used Mainframe Customs, but there are many different custom extension makers out there. Find one you like, just know the good ones will set you back a bit of cash

How did u connect the riing fans to the PC? They are 5 pin. did u use the controller? How do u manage/monitor the fan speeds via software?

  • 38 months ago

They are a regular 3pin fan header, and I used an NZXT Grid+ v2 and I'm using NZXT Cam Software to control all of them and the lighting

I got them back in February, just a few months before the 10 series launch. Trust me it did bring a tear to my eye. But that's what happens in the pc space.

Hello friend, i have a H97 System that i built last year before Skylake Launches. Now, i want to Upgrade to a Core i7 4790K from i5 4590 to improve my multitasking experience and also make my System last longer, do you think it is a good idea upgrade directly, or Upgrade to Skylake or maybe even Kaby Lake? By the way, amazing build +1.

  • 38 months ago

I'd say wait for kabby lake or wait like 2 months and grab am i7-5820k for like $340.00

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

I would wait. There is the Intel and AMD launches coming by hopefully Q2 2017. If you need it now then shop the deals online and find something that you personally feel is worth it

Thats like asking "why didnt you spend extra money that you dont need to?"

  • 38 months ago

No, it's like asking "why didn't you see into the future?" This is from January;)

Are you that closed minded that you havent thought "oh maybe he bought them for his last build, pulled them out, and used them in this one?".

  • 38 months ago

I was making a joke! Referencing the fact that he started in JANUARY? When the 10xx series weren't even out yet? Why do you need to immediately assume I am attacking you?

  • 38 months ago

Sorry, I see so many comments like that of people commenting on builds from 2014 asking why they didn't use things that were released in 2015-2016.

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

Maybe he got them before they came out? maybe found them for cheaper than 1070's? You can pick up a 980ti for roughly the same amount as a 1070 and in terms of gaming performance there pretty much on par so its really just six and two threes.

  • 38 months ago

980 ti performs the same or better than 1070s lol

  • 38 months ago

What do you mean by lol?

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

The fact that the original guy was implying that the 980 tis were inferior amused me since they're still powerhouses.

  • 38 months ago
  • 3 points

I agree with you, I don't get how some people do not realize that they are still 980ti performance. Just because the 1070 came out doesn't mean the 980ti is downgraded to gtx960 performance.

Oh well :)

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

well , the Ti's least available price as of right now is 450 euros while the 1070 is 420 euros (which isn't my point yet but still a factor) plus the 1070's TDP is 150 watts while Ti's is 250 (which makes thing worse if you want an SLI to be future proof) so yeah that's an extra reason to why the 1070 , although in his build it couldn't be helped as he started early

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

1070s will perform a bit better and scale a bit better also, but the 980 TIs will last so damn long.

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

Reason being is probably due to pascal, but yeah 980 tis are immortal. My friend gifted me one when they released and it's still kicking, I keep it mildly overclocked too.

If you're gonna have ond might as well be somewhere cool. I have my amiibos in there and use it as a stand since the 400C has an easy to open side panel.
