FINALLY! It's finished... kind of... posted 5/10/2015 2:17:01 AM
After months and months of work my personal rig is up and running at home. It still is not quite where I would like it to be as the lines are far from perfect in my loop, and I still have some wire management I would like to address... but it was just time to have a gaming PC back up and running at home. So here is a quick phone shot I uploaded.
Sadly, I have been working on this build for months. I started it in October. It was up and running for about two months then I got some crazy notion that I needed to try my hand and compile my first custom liquid cooling loop. Delaying things yet another chunk of time I then acquired another insane notion that injecting some custom sleeving would also be a worthwhile project. I completely installed a flexible tubing loop and sold off my closed loop Corsair cooler. Then for some reason I decided to try my hand at the rigid tubing... I'm glad I did it because even though I still need some practice on the bends it still looks better than the flexible.
Sleeving was not much different. I used Kobra sleeving, then opted for paracord, and after that decided I preferred the prior style because of the colors and picked up some PET sleeve. I then re-sleeved my PSU for the third (and final I swear it) time! Ultimately, I think I honestly just did not want the project to finish... it was fun, and considering the amount I spent on the rig even prior to modding it is unlikely I will build again soon.
So without further ado, the system specs:
CPU: Intel i7 5820K MB: ASRock X99 Extreme4 ATX RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Storage: 4x 500GB Samsung 840 EVO (2TB RAID-0) & Seagate 6TB 7,200 RPM (for additional storage) GPU: 2x EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 in SLI Chassis: Corsair Graphite Series 780T PSU: EVGA 850W G2 Display: 2x Acer GN246HL 144Hz Cooling: EK Water Blocks, PrimoChill rigid tubing, and PrimoChill Rigid Revolver fittings Wallet: Flippin' empty!!!
Giveaways for CH Steam Group Members posted 11/30/2014 2:38:07 PM
I am not certain how many of you ever go to SteamGifts. I created some giveaways there strictly for members of the CH Steam Group.
A couple of things worth noting here: - It is free - You must be a member of the CH Group on Steam (it's a public group so any of you can find us and join) - You accrue points as new giveaways are created, and then spend said points on giveaways you wish to enter - If you register there now, you will have enough points to enter all of my giveaways before they close - The environment there is exceedingly toxic. I donít recommend staying. These are my last giveaways on the site
