It feels kind of like a mistmatched computer, with some parts quite aesthetic and other parts not so much.

Nice cable management though.. Assuming it looks as good as this on the back ;)

Was this built recently?

 

It's certainly powerful, but depending on what country you bought that i7 in, might be terrible value 

 

Very clean and attractive build.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

That's what i'm looking for, power is fine for me, just trying to figure out what to do to it to make it look even nicer, i like it but there's always more 😈

Btw All correctly tied up at the back ;)

Thank you, i like it :D

That power supply is very very poor quality. I would strongly suggest replacing it. The SMART SE models lack crucial protections and have horrid build quality.

Your system barely uses 350-400W under max load. I'd say get a Corsair RMx 550W and call it a day. 750W is beyond overkill and damn near double what your system uses.

aesthetics first

 

1. great cable management, would love to see how you managed it at the back side :D

2. not having a PSU shroud makes it look slightly dated, maybe consider getting a newer case with a psu shroud or custom making one out of aluminum if you have the know-how.

3. blue tubing/fluid looks a little out of place. clear, black or white will look better. you can use custom sleeving if you cant change out the tubing.

4. tubes are crossed, crossed soft tubing makes builds look kinda thrown together.

5. you can use custom sleeved cable extensions to make the cables fit your white case a little better.

 

parts

1. psu is horrendous, will link PSU Tier list below, get at least a Tier B and above. If possible a Tier A like a Corsair RM550x

2. 7700k on a H270 board? maybe get a Z270 so you can OC it a little and squeeze abit more performance

Thanks, white tubing is a fab idea ! :)

You know i've only just seen the crossed tubing now you've said that 😆

Sleeve extentions are definitely going on the list

You're the 2nd person to inform me about the psu, looking at the Corsair RM550x as we speek :)

Mobo i'll probably change out when i go up a couple of gens (or go amd)

 

Thanks for the psu list 👍

no problem, and going amd in the future is a great idea. intel price-performance makes no sense anymore.

2nd Person to say case with a basment (agreed it would look better)

PSU i'm looking at right now as i've been educated 😆

I like the idea of storing more games on the m2 🤗

Gonna change the look of the AIO

I would've gotten a non-RGB 2x8 gb 4000 mhz ram but dang, cable management done right! Linus would be proud 

I've read there wasn't much point getting higher speed due to 7th gen limitation,

Thanks for the cable management appreciation 🤗

 

Btw the Doge Pringle pic is awesome 👍

Not much to add here to all the great suggestions. One thing I also want to add that I didn't happen to see is maybe get an exhaust fan in the top or rear to get some airflow over the mobo and VRMs. While your overclock doesn't sound very aggressive(you didn't say voltages) it's still an overclock and the VRMs will thank you for a little airflow.
