If you're thinking a unicorn broke into my home and puked into my computer then you wouldn't be wrong..... I present to you what my hopes and dreams are made of. Years of patience, careful planning, and the largest hole burned into my wallet that I never had intended to spend though here I am.
The Custom Cowboy Bebop Backplate was purchased from JMMods.com I'm one satisfied customer! Please consider him for future custom plating needs. Please bear in mind he is also a 1 man show and it may take a month or so though he is able to provide updates for possible completion dates via his Facebook page. Big thanks to him for providing such a beautiful work of art!
All EK Fittings, Valves, Connectors, Tubings, Waterblocks were purchased from Performance-pcs.com. It is always a pleasure ordering material from them and they are more than happy to assist in any way. I went with the Bitspower Shinning Silver Brass tubing well because of how slick they look. They fit perfectly with all EK 16mm Rigid Tube Connectors. It was an adventure alone measuring and cutting and then re-measuring and re-cutting and brainstorming, planning, and executing ideas for how everything was going to flow. Unfortunately I was unable to find a good place to install the EK Ball Valve for bleeding the system and will become a hassle in the future. For now I'm happy.
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is a powerhouse of a CPU. Ever since AMD announced their Zen 1 lineup my excitement was rekindled in the CPU market. I'm currently running 4.325Ghz @ 1.45v idling around 40-45c depending on ambient temperatures. https://valid.x86.fr/cggcv0
Asus ROG C7H is a interesting motherboard to say the least. I've overcome several hurdles overclocking and troubleshooting a wide verity of errors and q-codes with this board. Asus seems to be trailing behind at times when it comes to their bios updates, mostly their stability and optimization updates for this board. I hope they continue to support this board especially with AMD's announcement of Zen 2 this year. This board is quoted to be "overkill" for the 2700X and should support 16 Cores no problem. For now I'm happy with this board.
Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB 3466 Ram kit was also a little trouble maker at first. Utilizing all 4 sticks of ram I'm only able to achieve 3000MHz speeds running at 1.5v. In the beginning I was able to kill a ram stick which baffled me though I'm sure it was just due to poor overclocking on my part. Corsair Support was able to accept RMA and provided a new kit in a timely manner. Very happy with their service.
EVGA GTX 1080 Hybrids in SLI are also a winning pair. I was fortunate enough to purchase these cards at very reasonable prices when everything came back down for a moment. These cards run at very low temperatures especially when paired with EK FC1080 FTW waterblocks. I'm able to achieve 2088MHz in SLI with Memory overclocked to 6003MHz stable and keep both cards around 40-50c. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6248212
Lian-Li O11 is an awesome case with plenty of space for your custom watercooling needs. Main selling point in my book was the 360 Radiator support. In my setup I have 2 x EK PE 360 Radiators packed into this case along with a large water reservoir and standalone pump. Unfortunately when opting for SLI I'm unable to mount the Radiator/Fan combo at the bottom of the case. There is not enough room for it to be beneficial in any way. Nonetheless an amazing case with tons of space.
Corsair HX1000i is plenty for everything I have in this case and will support anything else I decide to throw into this case in the future.
Corsair LL120RGB Fans will probably be replaced in the future due to the low amount of air they are able to move through my radiators. For now they keep things cool though I feel I can bring temperatures down further with something like Noctua fans.
Samsung C32HG70 Monitor is awesome paired with the SLI 1080s and even better now with Nvidia supporting Freesync. Main selling point for me was 1440p, HDR, Freesync, and size. This thing is massive and with the slight curve helps emerge you into the action.
