Description

So a few of you are probably like "wth this guy again". I am back and ready to share my final iteration of this masterpiece. I swapped the motherboard for the IX Formula and had a tiny upgrade from my EVGA 750Ti to a Strix 1080Ti. Hopefully, this will hold me over until the Xbox One X comes out. In the process of migrating everything to the Formula board I removed the pre applied thermal paste from the CPU and block with Articlean and applied the GC Extreme. I noticed a good decrease in temps. About 10C. My CPU is not delidded. Maybe in the future when I start OC'ing. Please don't mind the mismatched GPU cables. I can not find my CableMod stash so I ordered a new custom sized one to fit in with my extremely tight cable management. No more push pull config for the rad. I almost broke the HD120 fan trying to squeeze it in between the GPU and rad Had to remove the stock H100iV2 fans that were pushing through the rad in order to fit the GPU. Can't wait to fire up some Rocket League and play all weekend. Next upgrade is the EKWB AIO whenever they feel like releasing it! (Cough cough EKWB hurry up). Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask in the comments for the rest of the community to profit.

P.S. My next build will be a piccckkkllleee!!!

You do realize that the Xbone X is going to be ATLEAST 20x weaker than your build right?

The heat of that burn singed my hair.

Maybe not 20 but yes I know my build is much more powerful. However I have over 100 games on Xbox. And my 4K HDR TV is single and ready to mingle with a new console.

That 4K HDR TV would get along very nicely with that 1080 Ti too, ya know ;)

I would imagine I'd get screen tearing. But haven't tried yet.

You've got enough power to enable vsync in most games, that should take care of that. I use a projector for single big screen gaming, works out great!

Actually a 4k tv(assuming it can handle 60+fps) is more than enough for a gtx 1080ti.

I do believe that screen tearing is caused if the monitor or tv is just too slow for the GPU.

plus the Xbox one X will only have upscaled and checkerboard 4k (indie titles if supported will be native 4k) and most if not all "triple A* titles will only average at about 30fps.

Wow nice build bro! Are you gonna do a miniverse and tinyverse next?? Lol

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Most likely yes. I've been wanting to to a Mini iTX build for some time now. It'll happen one day. I already did one in my builds. With the tiny ASRock DeskMini. But I want to do something nice with a window and stuff.

Thank you! I still think about my original build with the Phanteks case. I miss that build, but I was going crazy with the faulty USB and CAM software.

I, like you, went from a lower end to extreme too. Went from a 1060 to a 1080 ti and wow... 4k is beautiful!! Enjoy your build

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

I never had a 1060 but I did a client build with one. I've actually had a Strix 1070 OC, EVGA 1070 FTW, EVGA 750Ti, and now the Strix 1080Ti. I've jumped around lol Thanks!

Don't lie to yourself. This is not it. There are always more upgrades to be had :)

Yeah you're right. *Orders another Strix 1080Ti with HB Bridge lol

Really hope you get to make use of the liquid cooled power delivery on that board. It's too expensive to not make use of every feature you can! I also like the added fan under the radiator to help bring in some ambient air, I've got something similar going on with my latest WIP.

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Definitely not in this case. Cable management is very tight as it is. If I did in the future it would be in a much bigger case. Yeah I always like having a fan on the HDDs to keep them nice and cool. I seen your builds. Very nice!

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

It's possible, but your choices for parts are very limited. There's actually enough room between the HDD bay and the front of the case for a few specific pumps, reservoir size/placement is where most of the limitations are. Looks like your DIMM slots are positioned to allow a radiator up top too(mine are too high). This case is definitely not an easy one for custom loops though haha. Not if you have 3.5" HDDs.

Haha thanks! You beat me to the 1080 Ti though, I'll have mine in a few weeks.

  • 29 months ago

I've seen the builds on here doing a custom loop I'm this case and it gave me a headache just looking at the management lol. I definitely need my HDDs which plays a big role cause most people have to remove the HDD bays. And I need my backups.

I don't know anything about Rick and Morty, but your build is one of the best on PCPP ever!

  • 29 months ago

Because of the parts or because of Rick And Morty? Or both? Either way big thank you!

The RGB is so well finished. I like the part list also!

  • 29 months ago

Thanks. Yeah I have to admit it's the best IMO. They strips and fans sync up well. I used to have the CableMod Widebeam RGB and controlled though Aura nicely.

I reallt dont know why you went with formula without a custom loop? Not hating in anyway though. Good build!

  • 29 months ago

Just a computer enthusiast like everyone else here. Always wanted the Formula. Regretted getting the Code. Even though the Code was a great board I still eyed the Formula.

I was just about to say this doesn't have enough pickle... then I saw your next build will be a pickle...

I'll be waiting.

P.S: I'm making a Linux Host OS in Schroedinger’s universe (S02E01) managing a QEMU hypervisor and a Windows VM inside a simulation. (inside a simulation)

That.......is.....AWESOME! I need to start messing with Hyper-V. I just got my feet wet with VMWare. Got MacOS Sierra running great on it.

Pretty much have the same build but looking to put a 1080 Ti in mine, how much clearance between the 1080 and the fans of the H100i V2?? Nice build, I always love a neat looking 400C.

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Clearance is good. Definitely can't do push pull. Only one or the other. I think if it was a dual fan card I'd have room for push pull.
