The answer boils down to cost compared to need. Will your system be overclocked, running at the highest output, the best gaming, video rendering, or just the everyday use of spread sheets, word programs, and an occasional video or online chat. If its the later four, stick with air cooled. The cost of purchasing a water cooled system is not needed. On the other hand, if you are expecting to push your PC to the max then get a water cooled system. There are affordable closed units being sold that will cool the CPU. On the other hand, if money is not a concern and you want the pinnacle PC then go with a custom water cooled system, just be prepared to spend hours putting it together and spending a month or two salary to cover the build. Enjoy.
Another check is to clear the cmos and reboot again with the GPU installed to see if this clears the issue.
It's possible. You should check the motherboard manual or online to verify if the RAM configuration will work. When I built my set up I checked before purchasing the RAM to see if they were compatible. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/jkXPxr, you can check out my system. Good luck.
All I can say is magnificent!
Double check your GPU cables to the power supply. Some GPU have more then one power connector, 6 pin and 4 pin.
This is a great build and at a reasonable price for a hard tubed custom water cooled art.
My first loop did not have the flow-meter and I had the same concerns. Again, great design and build.
This is magnificent, puts my computer to shame. Great job.
Nice job sir.
None yet. The X99 has performed great without issues so far. I have overclocked it to 4.0 without a hiccup. Hopes this helps.
I believe you need a bios update for motherboards prebuilt before the CPU debut in 2016. I purchased the Asus Strix X99 board that came out about the same time and I did not have to update the bios. This is a Haswell design and there are older 2011-3 motherboards that will work with the 6800K, and I believe PCP state this to be on the safe side.
Now that is some dust.
Very nice job.
Not for a while. This was one big project and need to save money for now.
The side is also intake. I came to the conclusion that if it was exhaust it would defeat getting cool air to the front fans. Yes the razor cuts off, but as long as sound is being emitted it doesn't shut off. While working on photos I play music.
I have corsair RM1000x brand new and still in wrapper. Will part with it for reasonable price. The first unit was RMA and they sent me a new one, but before I received it purchased another model. Now have this extra PSU sitting around.
Please give me an update when you get the extension. Thanks.
It looks great. This is my setup https://pcpartpicker.com/b/6zNQzy. Enjoy the build
You will have to drill a hole to secure it. I have a XSPC 170 combo res and drilled holes in my case to attach it.
Check your CPU or GPU cooler, may need to reset CPU with new thermal compound.
After reading several more sites I have come to the conclusion you will need to plug the GPU into the motherboard for it to work. This will solve your issue, enjoy.
I use an Intel chip so I had to look up Ryzan. I read that the Ryzan 5 does not have an integrated graphics built into chip. If this is correct you will need to use your graphics card. Otherwise, the motherboard will not post. If you gave the GPU plugged in and still not posting try removing all the memory and reinstall one to see if it works. Start by removing hardware to see if this is the cause.
Have you tried reseating cpu? What type of cooler are you using on the CPU?
It may be your PSU is not working. If you have a second PSU swap it out and check to see if it will work. Also, check you connections on your motherboard. Everything plugged in correctly.
You need to look at your GPU. The Nvidia 1080ti uses a 6 pin and 8 pin. Both pins must be plugged in. The GPU is not getting enough power. Your PSU cord has a 6 head and 6 + 2, which is 6 pin and 8 pin. This should solve your problem.
Need a little more information before you could get an answer. What type of motherboard are you using. Does it have a Q code to display the problem? If it does, use the manual to look up the type of error code being displayed.
The bottom loop from the GPU outlet to the XSPC reservoir pump combo had several revisions during the build. The great thing with the XSPC GPU water block is the six outlets allowing the builder to choose the best loop. The final revision has the return tubbing connected to a Bitspower flow indicator that attaches to a T fitting on the return inlet on the combo pump. The T fitting is utilized for draining with a modified attachment setup.
Great looking rig.
Please oh God please put the PC on a desk or raised platform. The intake will be littered with dust from the rug.
I am currently building a water cooled PC and I am happy to use ensourced.net for the cables. I am using acid purple with silver stripes and a acid purple / white setup. It compliments by two white XSPC radiators.
I am so happy to see a family come together. I hope your daughter enjoyed the time together.
Great work from my Northern neighbor!
This is a great mod, I am not worthy even commenting on this.
I adore the water cooling setup.
I would love to see more of your PTEG tubing and the awesome bends, including a full view of the water setup with res, radiator, and GPU.
I am at awe. You have built a piece of beauty.
Nice, love the color concept.
Great job, yes more pictures please.
Not sure, but I assume you are using the back fans as intake and the water cooler fans as an exhaust? If not, your rear fan is on backwards.
I do. Testing out the system slowly. I am using the preset OC from the motherboard. Currently wetting my toes at 7% OC. My next slow steps will be edging the GPU.
