Apex MKIV Final Pics

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

 

thought id share this one with you, this is Apex MKIV my custom rig... iv finally finished the custom loop and got my 2080ti and custom cables... i absolutely love it, and feedback is appreciated.

 

Note. the CPU is kinda outdated however in my opionion still upto my every day tasks... it does not bottleneck the GPU at all. 

 

current spec:

i7 6800K hexcore @ 4.4GHZ

16GB 3000MHZ DDR4

RTX 2080Ti Founders

X99 ROG STRIX RGB

HX 850I

NVME 250GB 970 EVO

2TB WD BLACK

 

 

Thanks...

Nice build! That's a super neat tubing job you've done there. :)

Like Sowon said, that's a hella clean build there! Also happy to see another peep running X99, it's a solid platform (I have the 5820K, very similar CPU to the 6800K but a bit better of an overclocker on average).

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, LGA1366 Xeons, and X chipsets: @WhisperingKnickers.

thanks, when i bought the CPU it has just come out to replace the 5820k, they perform almost identically, more of an effiecency upgrade. 

 

Sounds wierd but the main reason i woudnt want to upgrade to the 9900k is the 4 ram slots, i enjoy the simetrical look of 8 haha!

Lol, same. I actually bought X99 over other stuff (I'm weird like that, at one point downgraded from a 2700X on a Crosshair VII to the X58 platform because it was more fun to OC) because I love the HEDT X series platform. the symmetrical RAM slots are just pretty (I run 4x8), if I went to a consumer platform my 4 sticks would just put unnecessary load on the IMC for no performance benefit. Even if I don't actually do anything that needs that RAM bandwidth, I just enjoy it being there.
