  1. @EKJake Hey! Sorry I didn't see this until now. But I have an Instagram dedicated to this pc it's @fliptechtv . Feel free to check it out. Thanks for the compliments on the build! I worked hard on it as it is no easy task to build in a case that small.
  2. Just added another 1080 ti to the build known as "The Copper Creamery". Waiting for more LEDs to come in for the blocks and for the case but aside from that it is pretty much done. I would like to make a white acrylic mobo tray so that it looks even cleaner but havent had the time to disassemble everything to put a custom tray in. Any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I have my games on my 2x 1tb samsung 860 evod that are in a raid 0 array. So pretty fast as it is. No need of optane as I only use the hdd to backup my raid 0 array once a week when I'm not using the comp (scheduled runs Monday 2am). As for dust I've had the build for a little over 6 months now and the dust filters and positive pressure pushing outward prevent a lot of dust from getting in
  4. @dizmo @Alex Atkin UK thank you both for the advice. I want to do more to my comp but just cant think of anything else to do to it lol. I know...first world problems... but it's been a blast building this thing and would love to do more to it. It's more about enthusiast projects rather than efficiency lol.
  5. Hi all, I am looking to add to my computer build and there really isnt much more to add because my current setup is stacked. 1080 ti I7 7700k 2x 1tb samsung 860 evod in raid 0 1x 2tb 2.5" seagate barracuda 5400 rpm for backing up raid 0 array on weekly basis 1x 250gb samsung 960evo m.2 for operating system I was thinking of getting another m.2 as my motherboard could support one more m.2. I was looking at the new 970 evo 250gb, but was wondering if there would be any issues if I decided to put that 970 evo in a raid 0 array with my current 960 evo. I dont know if they have to be the same exact m.2 or if they could be different. And if they can be different will I take a hit in performance rather than just buying another 960 evo to do a raid 0 array with my current 960 evo. Thanks!
  6. Redid my bends to make everything look more parallel. What do you think? Posted a before and after. Also added another Samsung 850 evo 1tb SSD. Now total storage consists of: 2x 1tb Samsung 850 Evo SSD's in Raid 0 for games/video editing/storage 1x Samsung 950 Evo NVME M.2 for Operating System 1x 2tb Seagate Barracuda 2.5" for scheduled imaging of my Raid 0 config. I decided to use Macrium Reflect to schedule Sunday night weekly imaging backups of my Raid 0 2x 1tb Samsung 850 evo drives in Raid 0 to my 2tb Seagate Barracuda. This is for redundancy in the case of a drive failure. Any other suggestions of how to config this are greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. Finally had time to install all 4 modules and attach the EK water block. I will be re-doing the bends so that everything is parallel, but since I had limited time and wanted to get online to play some pubg with my friends, I set it up the simplist way possible. Please let me know what you think and how I can do the final loop. Otherwise, it came out pretty nice. Thanks!
  8. Last watercooling component arrived for my loop. Some sexy ekwb monarch x4 block and modules ti match my black, white, and copper build. Will do the other two ram modules, bend some more tubes, and add it to the lineup this weekend. Will post finished product then!
  9. @Mnpctech thanks for the advice! That's actually not a bad idea.
  10. @Mnpctech Thank you! I actually got cable combs from you guys and was going to buy a verticle gpu mount and riser for my future sli which will run to the other side of the case (custom window and watercooled gpu mounted vertically) First build but I've let this hobbie consume the past 6 months of my life and now am a pro at modding and have all the tools necessary. Want to do it as a side gig as I seem to be good at it and more importantly like doing it. And If anyone needs help with their build or modding let me know as I'd be happy to do some pro bono work. Also, this build is a monster overclocker Below is the finished custom modded corsair emblem I made out of acrylic and an led.
  11. Project Suite and Tie Case: air240 Cpu:i77700k delidded with rockit88 kit applied conductonaut ti cpu die Also, replaced intels ihs with rockit's beautiful copper ihs. Temps stayed dropped hard after installation. Gpu: 1080 ti founders edition Ram: 32gb (4x8gb) corsair vengance lpx 3000mhz cl15 Ssd: Samsung evo 960 1tb M.2: Samsung evo 960 250gb nvme m.2 Mobo: asrock z270m extreme4 Psu:SeaSonic Electronics PRIME Titanium 650W 80 Plus Titanium Modular Power Supply Fans: 3x corsair ml120 white Custom Waterloop Gpu: ek full cover waterblock Cpu: ek supremacy evo Radiators: 240mm ultra stealth black nemesis white radiator & 120mm ultra stealth black nemesis white radiator Reservoir: Alphacool: 150mm eisenbacher reservoir Pump: ek d5 pump Tubing: thermaltake petg (the best tubing known to man. So easy to work with) Fittings: eK white hardline fittings Fluid: cl1000 opaque white Peripherals not shown in pictures: Mouse: corsair m65 pro Mousepad: corsair mm800 rgb Keyboard: corsair k70 rgb rapidfire Headset: corsair void pro Monitor: acer predator x34P overclocked 120hz (just bought this baby today ) Back of case tubing: ek zmt matte black soft line tubing with ek soft line fittings and horsepower spout Custom cable sleeving from mainframe customs *custom wires ti exact length with custom sleeving. Also added a custom side panel made of clear acrylic with 1/2" standoffs (painted copper). Lastly, added custom acrylic floor paneling and custom acrylic top paneling with square cutouts to allow air to pass through.
  12. Just made a new emblem out of acrylic to match my copper, white, black theme.
  13. Update: Painted my fittings copper to go with the white, copper, black, theme. In addition, I added white acrylic paneling to the top of the case. I realized that it would cut off air flow from the top of the case so I decided to jigsaw/dremel square cutouts, to allow breathing. In addition, I spray painted the mesh and fan filter white to blend in with the white paneling. Let me know what you think. Next is the mobo armor and the mobo tray, both going to be white.
  14. So far its looking great! I wish I could have that scroll saw setup you have. Living in an apartment so its very hard to mod around here. I am stuck with a dremel. But your build is definitely coming a long. I can't wait to see the finished product. I will have to go through the same thing with my mobo cover and will probably be harder considering mine is a microatx board . But again... Great job so far!!
  15. I cant seem to find it. Can you send picks. I'd love to see it.
  16. Hey thanks for the advice. My original thought was to make mobo armor with acrylic. Possibly stay white or do white with copper/black accents. And then do a mobo tray that will take up the entire back side of the case. For that I would just use white acrylic. And then I was going to do white acrylic panel on the top. That way it would basically be a clean white box.
  17. Haha yeah it is quite pointless. Just plugged it in for completion purposes. But that rainbow wire is quite ugly. I appreciate the comment because now I'll probably unplug it
  18. Thanks man I do appreciate the comments. It's funny you mention the sticker because I didn't even notice it until today. But upon noticing it i ripped that sucker off. As for the ram sticks, they work properly in any slot I put them in. They register and everything. The 2 slots empty is just temporary as I plan to get two more along with ek monarch x4 waterblock to add the 32gb of ram to my loop :))
  19. Since I documented the process here are some pics of the delidding. This is a pretty simple installation if you have the right tools. I may even put some lm on my gpu as well, but have heard horror stories so I am hesitant.
  20. Hey all, Just wanted to share my almost finished build. I live in an apartment with my girlfriend who has a crafting station already. This limits my space for a gaming setup so I went with a small case for factor. I decided to go with the corsair air 240. Below are parts of my build: Case: air240 Cpu:i77700k delidded with rockit88 kit applied conductonaut ti cpu die Also, replaced intels ihs with rockit's beautiful copper ihs. Temps stayed dropped hard after installation. Gpu: 1080 ti founders edition Ram: 16gb (8 x 2) corsair vengance lpx 3000mhz cl15 Ssd: Samsung evo 960 1tb M.2: Samsung evo 960 250gb nvme m.2 Mobo: asrock z270m extreme4 Psu:SeaSonic Electronics PRIME Titanium 650W 80 Plus Titanium Modular Power Supply Fans: 3x corsair ml120 white Custom Waterloop Gpu: ek full cover waterblock Cpu: ek supremacy evo Radiators: 240mm ultra stealth black nemesis white radiator & 120mm ultra stealth black nemesis white radiator Reservoir: Alphacool: 150mm eisenbacher reservoir Pump: ek d5 pump Tubing: thermaltake petg (the best tubing known to man. So easy to work with) Fittings: eK white hardline fittings Fluid: cl1000 opaque white Peripherals not shown in pictures: Mouse: corsair m65 pro Mousepad: corsair mm800 rgb Keyboard: corsair k70 rgb rapidfire Headset: corsair void pro Monitor: acer predator x34P overclocked 120hz (just bought this baby today ) Back of case tubing: ek zmt matte black soft line tubing with ek soft line fittings and horsepower spout Custom cable sleeving from mainframe customs *custom wires ti exact length with custom sleeving. Also added a custom side panel made of cle as r acrylic with 1/2" standoffs (painted copper) I think I got everything lol! This build was certainly a challenge. My first pump alphacools vpp755 d5 pump was a dud and delayed build by a week. So picked up eks pump and it is working wonderfully. Another challenge was working in such a small case. Truly a challenge. From being able to find the parts that actually fit in the case, to running soft tubing in back without kinks in the back, to making sure the build was nice, neat, and clean looking. That was my main goal. I wanted a clean looking build like when you get all dressed up for a formal dinner party in your "suit and tie", hence the name of this build "suit and tie" along with that I tried to stay with the black and white theme. But then i realized that my blocks were copper so i wanted to incorporate copper copper into the color scheme. I will be adding more copper to this build by painting white fittings copper, and putting copper painted accents when I do the white mobo tray which will take up the entire back side of the case. This build is far from over as I want to clean it up a bit by adding more white acrylic paneling to the top and, as previously mentioned to the backside of the case as a mobo tray. I also spray painted the metal grates copper to incorporate more copper into the color scheme. Please let me know what you think. All critisicim is welcome as I am constantly upgrading/updating/modding this build. In my eyes this build will never be complete :))
  21. @Crunchy Dragon- Thank you so much for the compliments. I tried to keep it clean and simple as possible. It definitely came out better than expected, but hit was absolutely a challenge building in the air240. The small form factor creates a fun challenge to the build.
  22. Hey all, I finished my build. I went with the corsair air240. I live in an apartment with my girlfriend and she has her own crafting area, which didnt leave me much room for a computer so I decided to go with a small form factor case and mother board. Ek waterblocks abd fittngs, thermaltake tubing, black nemesis radiators, corsair ml120 fans, delidded liquid metal i77700k, 1080 ti, corsair vengance lpx 3000mhz 8x2 gb ram. I am ALWAYS looking for ideas to upgrade this build. I have an abundance of leftover acrylic, an unused dremel, and an unsatisfiable need to continue to upgrade this build to make it look amazing. I will be doing a motherboard tray with white acrylic that will sit behind the motherboard and will extend the entire back side of the case, to give it a clean white box look. Again just looking for ideas to mod it even more. Please any ideas are welcome. Thanks so much!
  23. Thank you all for all of the tips. I went ahead and returned the 60hz/ips/4k/gsync monitor for a 120hz/ips/widescreen/1440p. Picture attached. Went with the Acer Predator x24P, the one that is overclockable to 120. My thought process was that it is the best of all worlds. I save money because rather than buying 3 high end monitors for sim racing, I now have an ultrawide.
