sah dude... the original pc08 case with ring fans :)

i have updated my desk setup with photos about a year from the purchase date. i ended up getting a new samsung curved 21:9 1440p monitor. great for anything. i ended up using my 16:9 vertically by ripping a stand off a really old monitor i had and jerry rigging some aluminum angle iron to clamp the screen on the top and bottom. so far i have really liked this custom build and the monitors work perfectly for different applications and workflows. feel free to ask any questions or make comments below! thanks for viewing.

ps. i dont know how to delete the second 980ti on this list. it was my original plan to sli the two. but put the money into the monitor instead. figured it would be a better idea to play this one out a little longer and upgrade the gpu in a few generation when they are much better. because yea two liquid cooled 980ti would be awesome... but in 3 or 4 years one card could replace the pair and match in performance while being less taxing on the power bills.

What about a 5960X? Great Build Anyway, like really good!

On one hand, double the price just to add a couple of cores might not worth it. Even a 5820K will do in this build. On the other hand however I agree with you, why not go all out?

i wanted the benifit from the extra lanes the 5930k would have supplied me. 5960x would have been double the price for noth that much more performance. i feel like the middle route was best for my application. i think im eventually going to do another build with a 14 core xeon and build up a server. but then again they are very expensive. the cpu alone for that idea is nearly the price for this entire build. haha

Defo the 21:9.. LG's seems to have very competitive prices....waiting for the January sales to snatch on up...#GetProductive....stunning case

Ah..you've got Nvidia cards lol...the LG's are Freesync monitors hence why I'll go that route.. not impressed with the 48-75Hz range on the LG's though. if I don't see any improvements I'll settle for a non-Freesync monitor and use AMD's frame rate control. LG UC97C will be way to go...and ditch freesync on a 2560x1080p monitor.

Been thinking about this case, but there are just too many small problems, and it is such a waste of space. I am hoping that they make some updates if they do another version. Looks good though.

In the parts list there are 2x 980ti, but in the photos there is only one visible. Are you adding another one soon??

He said he was planning on getting another one for SLI, but used the money on the monitor and couldn't figure out how to remove the second card from the list.

Case = WOW! Do they do it in white? How was the case to work with? Not keen on your colour choices - green fans wtf!? Personally I Would have preferred an all white build with RBG LEDS, like mine but each to their own *Get some braided cables though for sure to make it look even cleaner :)

i found out after i baught the fans that you can get them in rgb color changing rings but they were very pricey. also the all white ring fans did go through my mind and at one point was my plan. but im weak for green and purple/blue color theme. my room is somewhat boring with all white walls. figured it could use some color. as far as the case goes, there is a certain method you must use to install everything. it was rather frustrating at times. i had to install the liquid cpu rad in the back (which is good) keeps the heat away from the board. but the tubing interfere with the clearance for a second gpu rad i was gonna put at the top. so it looks like ill either have to mod the case or just put the 2nd gpu rad on the back fan mount. ideally i would love to keep both gpu rads up top to intake cold air. the motherboard installation proved to be the most annoying only because the gpu doesn't want to go in after the board was already installed. so i had to install everything on the board first then install the entire thing into the case. since lian li designed the expansion bays to have the thumbscrews on the outside instead of the inside. this for some reason prevented me to install the gpu. but all in all im still happy once its all together. thanks for the comment.

Did you happen to get the idea of this from HardwareCanucks because this is almost identical to that build

  • 48 months ago

i had actually ordered all the parts before they made the video. i have just been religiously watching pc part picker and researching the market for some time now.

linus tech did something almost identical in a corsair case too. last week i believe. we all seem to be on the same page.

I'm working on my watercooled PC08 case. A lot more difficult than I thought it would be. But I must say I love the thermaltake fans...

Not sure what your GPU temps will be though...

  • 47 months ago
  • 1 point

gpu temps arent that bad honestly. its def the hottest thing in the case. i have never seen it go above 65 ever. and i have been pushing it with gaming multiple monitors while screen recording native resolutions. its a very very quiet case. its actually quieter than my macbook pro too (when the macs fans are really goin cuz im doing high sample rates in ableton and virtual synths) ... have yet to fully test the system on adobe products and do some intense 3d renderings. let me know how it goes or shoot a link over this way if you choose to upload it.

How are the seahawks did you have any issues with the fan settings and we're they easy to configure seeing they are connected to the motherboard? Great build doing the same gpus but going skylake love the case.

  • 44 months ago

im loving the seahawk. benchmarks scored really high. fans are vaery quiet. even under stress test. possibly partly case design works well with noise. I ended up not getting the 2nd pgu instead ended up getting a 21:9 34 inch curved Samsung monitor. i think im gonna hold off on this generation of gpus let this one ride out and then get a next gen one that will be far more efficient and have far more ram then current gpus. well see those in the next couple of years. but this card still runs anything high graphics. the 21:9 @ 1440p makes it work harder but heat is never a problem since the heat is isolated in the back side of the case and away from the main hardware.

How did you find those fans because with my 1070 build I had 3 yellow 120mm thermaltake fans on my corsair 540air and they are soooo loud!

  • 38 months ago

no issues on my end. no idea who sells em now.

if they were on radiators then that can cause some resistance in flow causing sound. it worked out well with the pc 08 case because i put the cpu radiator on the backside of the ring fans. they still make noise if the side is open but once its together the back compartment really keeps it quiet. the fans themselves are silent tho. the yellow ring fans i havent been able to find on the market since i got them. and i literally bought the last ones i could find about a year from now. if i dont use them maybe i can send them to you. bec they are still sitting in the box unused. i have 2 of them.

You'll have to make sure the part list is saved, then edit the list and remove the second card. Then save it as is and update your build with the saved list. If it's not, you may just have to go hunting for the parts and redo it. That's why I save all of my lists.
