Wow, sorry for the late reply on this, but I used a disk drive reservoir, Koolance TNK-501 Single 5.25" Bay Reservoir, and the pump is the Alphacool VPP655 - G1/4 Inner Thread Including Eisdecke D5 - Plexi V.3, which can still be found at Performance-PCs.com.
Yes, they could no doubt hold something like that.
It could have been. Which processor did you purchase?
Ergotech Triple Desk Mount with Telescoping Arms, and it must be the best on the market. Getting everything to line up just right does take about an hour, or even more, but the end result is worth it. The reason it takes so long to set up though, is because it has tons of adjustment points so you can get the monitors setup just right.
Color on the monitors is great now that I have them spread out properly. The color on these is truly impressive, they just heavily lack in viewing angle accuracy. So if I were setting up a driving SIM that might want the monitors tilted in more, I would probably choose a different product.
It's also worth my mentioning that I update the BIOS immediately after booting up. I had heard that the shipped BIOS had some stability issues, and contacted ASUS directly about them. They informed me that the updated BIOS had resolved a majority of the issues that people were reporting. This is standard practice when building a PC though.
I have not had any issues with it actually. How did it "kill your CPU" anyway? I have mine OC'd to 4.3 right now. ASUS EZ Tune +.1 GHz. It overclocked my memory as well. Works great, hardest part was getting the right SLI Bridge HB for it. It needs the 1 slot spacing one.
Glad to hear it, and of course. I completely forgot to compliment the stand previously. That is, by far, one of the highest quality monitors stands I've seen.
Haha, sounds awesome. Message me when you get it up an running so I can see how it turned out!
Since I've mounted them on a proper triple monitor mount, they've been really great. No more discoloration because of angles. If you're doing a single monitor setup... you really won't be disappointed.
I think it would dissipate just fine with air cooling actually. The desk itself is amazing. Having all of your hardware sitting right there in front of you is a really awesome effect, and it leave your work/play space really neat and tidy. Especially because I was able to put a power strip inside the case so there's only 1 cable hanging down from the desk.
Lian Li also provides a lot of extra stuff with this case. The LED strips came with the case, and there was a lot of cable routing supplies, which you will need.
You have to take the entire glass top off to be able to plug anything into the mother board. You'll have 4 USB's on the front of the case, so that's not much of an issue, but if you run your mouse and keyboard to the motherboard itself, like I did, you would have to take the monitor(s) off and then the glass just to be able to swap those out.
There are a lot of cables that are part of the case, so routing them can be a pretty interesting challenge. I had to get creative with some of them, and I'm lucky I have the front radiator there to hide the mess that's underneath it haha. There's just not enough places to hide things.
I would recommend this desk case, but I haven't had any experience with any others like it.
Wanted to get back to you on this subject. With the CPU OC'd to 4.1 (through ASUS EZ Tuning) the system peaked at 633W running TimeSpy 3DMark test. I imagine this is the highest I would ever see. It pulls in an avarage of 510W on full load though.
Incredible job. The full color spectrum is a really nice effect. I considered doing that with my build, but opted to keep it down to 2 colors instead. Well done sir.
Thank you so much! I'm really happy with it.
Indeed it is. It does include everything though. Desk/case, 3 monitors, and all the little accessories. Though to be honest, I spent more than that overall on tools and equipment, and the acrylic panels and paint. Not to mention the immense amount of time I put into it.
I have a triple monitor mount coming in today haha.
Super fun using the tubing to make up the G1 Logo. Excellent and clean build.
I've been trying to figure out why these monitors weren't coming back on! Thank you for that hahaha.
Also, the 479.99 price I've listed them at is what I bought them for. Amazon had them at that price for one afternoon, so I didn't hesitate. They were the first purchase I made for that reason.
I really like how clean this build came out. Excellent first time build.
I'm not sure yet. Just got it running fully yesterday, so I haven't done the diagnostics. I'll let you know as soon as i get that info though.
Well it is a TP Monitor, not a IPS. The major issue I'm having right now is that as any little angle, the coloring takes on a yellowish tint. The reviews I read all seemed promising, but now I'm thinking that they were likely a single monitor setup. Straight on, the coloring in actually very impressive. I recently ordered a triple monitor clamp mount, so I can spread the monitors out a bit more. I'm hoping that improves the discoloration due to angle.
TL;DR: Discoloration at any angle. I wish I would have gone with an IPS monitor, but they were so damn expensive.
And 40 PCI-E Lanes vs 28. I know that running my GPU on 16x equates to only a 1% (margin of error) gain, but I feel better knowing that I'm not shorting anything. I didn't mind spending the extra money considering the scope of the project. Thanks for the comment!
I considered this, since I'm going to be doing this fully water cooled. I've just had bad experiences with Radeon in the past. Overheating issues mostly though, probably my fault.
I doubt that I would be trying to run 3 4K monitors, based on monitor pricing. One additional request, does anyone know of any resources I could use to look into configuring this system correctly? And thank you all for your help.
Then... Crazy as it might be, if they have trouble running it later, then adding a 3rd Titan Black would further future proof this correct?
