Description

12/11/19 - redid the tubing. First Looks a lot cleaner and way less cluttered imo. Updated the photos. Just waiting on a monitor mount for the two 27s. Decided to swap them around. Only at the desk in the darker photos. Didn't have the room. New cables are coming as well. Will update when all said and done.

List says h500m, it's the H500P - White. Not sure why it didn't show up when creating the parts list as I've seen it multiple times before.

Need to pick up some new ram. Will not work with all 4 dimms populated - not on the qvl. Was able to get two sticks (still 32 GB) running at 3400/IF 1700. Stock it works fine, anything more it won't train.

Well, I couldn't hold off any longer and felt the need to throw this in my current case. Ordering the Enthoo 719 this Friday and will probably be swapping it all over Saturday and Sunday, if not the following weekend. This project has been... Fun but dragged out. Didn't plan on doing anything with the current build as it was a 3600, and a 2080. 3900x, another 2080 Ti, and an overpriced, beautiful mobo. Will say, temps are fantastic. I knew buying the board I wasn't going for price to performance, but I'm blown away by even the chipset and vrm temps. I've posted almost every revision I've done here. Taking you guys with me along the money pit journey. All said and done, it'll be a 3950x paired with a 9900k and as many 2080 Tis as a 1200w psu can take with the two cpus. I wanted to show the errors in bending hard-line too, and how pictures can make it look perfect. Since I'm ordering the case so soon, I'm not spending the time draining and rebending. My ocd is driving me insane, but I can deal with it for another week or two.

That's quite a badass looking build.

Thank you! Excited to have it in a bigger case that really shows off the mobo.

Super cool. I like seeing that motherboard and placement of the tubing is right on. Tastefully done RGB too.

I thought I hated rgb, but I don't hate it actually... Not at all. I'm just kinda over the typical lighting. This neon strip from phanteks looks great whether it's hidden or exposed. Unfortunately with this case layout it didn't work how I wanted, so I used it on the front side like you see in the photos. The purple was along the back but with all the dips, beauty panels, and different slopes it just didn't sit right.

Appreciate it. 16mm OD - Just distilled water. Keeping the tubing clean is key, and I'm awful at not scratching it because petg scratches on practically anything. Always clean it up before putting it in, and after.

Do you know how may power stages that board has?

  1. Which is odd because my Pro Wifi was a 14 phase and I didn't get near the same voltages as I am now. My chip was decent... But this board makes it look golden.

Edit: Especially with buildzoids analysis on Gigabyte boards.

Why did you over spend on Ram? It really feels like you were just trying to burn money...

Idk why the ram prices were so high at $349 a kit. Was not even close to that when I purchased it. Was around $230, under $500 for both.

From a previous build on x299. Have had the kit for almost a year now.

Hello! I just built my new pc, and bought the monitor pg349q, the on you have. I would like to know if it was a good choice. What do you think about the monitor and its overclocking capabilities?

I absolutely love it. Was blown away. It's sitting next to a 278q and it's a night and day difference in color alone. I personally think the display is beautiful. Although I've only owned one other IPS panel, I feel like I got my money's worth. I read reviews about some issues though, but I haven't experienced any and I've been using it most 3 weeks or so now? I work on it too so it's on all the time. The only other monitor I would consider is LGs. And I think it's a bit more. I've always had Asus displays though, and they've always treated me right.

Edit: I've also owned Samsung and LG TVs which... One LG in all the time I've owned them **** out. Maybe one Samsung too. Sony still going strong, over 8 years old. KDL46HX750 model. First of the 3Ds. What I'm getting at, any name brand display is usually solid. I've heard great things about Acer but I just can't justify buying anything that says Acer for the amount of money the predators are, and definitely not AOC. And those may be great I'm just a brand snob with certain ****.

Thank you a lot! I am actually finishing my setup now, and I already bought that monitor. Thank you for the other recommendations, I hope the monitor works to me as it worked for you.

Nice build. I got #739 myself so our boards are pretty close to each other.

That is the most beautiful PC I've ever seen. I'd get the same one, but I don't have that much money lying around haha. Nonetheless, absolute beauty you've got there! 10/10

Would you be willing to sell the entire setup for around $7000?
