    Mod83 got a reaction from DJ46 in ROG Themed 011 Mini   
    Time for a new build!   The recent ASUSFext build was my first experience using a Lian Li case for a full-on build, but, as it happens, I have an 011 Mini literally sat here doing nothing from an article I did for Maximum PC, so.....why not make use of it right?   So, yes, it's another 011 build, I know, I know the forums and socials are already full of them but I do think it would be a great little case to make use of for what I have in mind. I'm looking around at what hardware I have spare at the moment, most of my parts are recycled from build to build but as I sit writing this and posting the first log update, I'm growing more fond of this case and build already    The theme is of course ROG as the title suggests, people know I love ASUS hardware and this build will incorporate their parts with some CyberText glass etching and a simple, crisp color scheme.   The hardware then for this update includes the Lian Li 011 Dynamic Mini, ASUS Maximus Hero XIII, Intel 11700K, and TeamGroup XCalibur RAM. This is then complemented by Seagate storage, using their FireCuda 510 1TB, FireCuda 520 (Gen 4) 500GB, and an Ironwolf Pro 10TB. Power will come from a be quiet! SFX L unit, but this may change depending on if I can source a 3000 series GPU, if not this will be the ASUS ROG Strix 2070.   As always this will be a full custom Alphacool based loop, and for a change to the usual fans seen in this case, I will be using the Alphacool Eiszyklon Aurora LUX Digital RGB 120mms. The AC logo will be getting covered with some custom stickers to clean up the theme.   Progress today has been fairly straightforward, the motherboard is now packed full of hardware and installed along with a 240mm to the rear wall and a 360mm to the bottom of the case. 6 fans are also in with 3 more coming for the top rail. The fans come with an included controller that can cover up to 10 fans, so we have enough space to run a single unit.   That's it for today, then I'm now to decide which pump/res to use and figure out the loop order, the next update will drop soon, hopefully by then the GPU and power have been confirmed and it will be time to start running some pipes!

    Well, it's done!

    The build is now finished and ready to be taken to Intel. I have a final video coming, but that will be after it's been delivered.

    Until Intel takes receipt of the build, it will be kept as its separate entities, overall I love how this has turned out. There are a couple of things I would change and the blue coolant in the rear system will also be getting changed out for a solid, EK Azure.

    Final spec:

    Front
    Intel 11900K
    ASUS Z590 Glacial
    3x 2TB WD Black NVME Gen 4 M.2
    ASUS TUF RTX 3090
    64GB Corsair Dominator
    Full Custom Alphacool Loop - 2x Eisbecher Aurora, 2x VPP655, 2x ST30 480mm, 1x GPU block
    8x Corsair LL120s
    2x Corsair Commander Pro
    2x Corsair RGB Hub
    4x Alphacool Aurora Rigid Digital RGB Strips 40cm
    Custom laser cut front and top frosted acrylic panels
    Custom Paint - Intel Yellow
    Custom Commander Pro 3D printed mounts
    Custom 3D printed reservoir mounts
    Glass Etching to the front glass

    Rear
    Intel 11700K
    ASUS Z590 Hero
    2x 2TB WD Black NVME Gen 4 M.2
    ASUS TUF RTX 3080
    64GB Corsair Dominator
    Full Custom Alphacool Loop - 2x Eisbecher Aurora, 2x VPP655 2x ST30 480mm, 1x GPU Block
    8x Corsair LL120s
    2x Corsair Commander Pro
    2x Corsair RGB Hub
    4x Alphacool Aurora Rigid Digital RGB Strips 40cm
    Custom laser cut front and top frosted acrylic panels
    Custom Paint - Intel Blue
    Custom Commander Pro 3D printed mounts
    Custom 3D printed reservoir mounts
    Glass Etching to the front glass

    This has been a really fun, but exhausting build. Hope people like it, Intel may be sending this for final pictures at a studio, if they do I will drop them below. A big thank you to them for letting me build this for their Gamer Days event, keep an eye out for this system, I think it might soon be all over their social!

    Well, as soon as I finish the Intel Gamer Days build, I have another project to work on.

    Meet the ASUSFest build!

    ASUS has asked me to build the PC that they are giving away as part of the upcoming ASUSFest campaign, and well, it's going to be another awesome build!

    To be in with a chance of winning this PC I suggest that you follow ASUS on social media, I wont post any links, I am sure that you can find them!

    For now, here's a teaser!













    These images will certainly give you an insight as to what is up for grabs, full custom system, avec hardline, yes it will be special and yes, you can win it!

    Good luck to all, il post a couple more updates, but, this gives you an idea of what's on offer!

    Hey all, hope you are safe and well. Intel has asked if I can put together a dual system build to celebrate Intel Gamer Days and guys, this thing is going to be absolutely enormous!   If you haven’t seen or heard about Intel Gamers Days, it’s a 10-day virtual festival packed with incredible deals, exciting streams, and exclusive giveaways for gamers around the globe.  If you don’t already follow Intel on social media then now is the time to start because  later this year they will be bringing a load of content including influencer workshops, exclusive gameplay previews, game developer panels, and much more.   So to celebrate Intel Gamers Days as I said, Intel has asked me to build something a little bit over the top, they want me to put together a dual system to include a main gaming system, and a streaming PC all under one roof.   Any dual system build is challenging and typically incorporates both an ATX and ITX motherboard but we are going all out for this, both systems are going to be ATX using ASUS motherboards. Of course, given this is an Intel based build they will be Z590 and subject to any last minute changes, the front will be using the ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial while the rear will be getting the ROG Maximus XIII Hero.   The Glacial will be running an 11900K while the Hero gets an 11700K, both boards will run Seagate FireCuda NVME drives. I think I’ve gone for 6TB total for the front system and 4TB for the rear so storage won’t be an issue for steam libraries any time soon. Ram will be all Corsair with 64 and 32GB kits respectively. Graphics are to be covered, subject to confirmation, by two ASUS RTX 3080 cards, I’m not going to dwell on GPUs because I know everyone’s trying to get hold of stuff.  Power supplies are SFX the Seasonic 1000W units, great little solutions for high-end builds in tight spaces.   The cooling is going to be predominantly Alphacool with Corsair GPU blocks, dual res per system, and two 480mm radiators per system.  Il be using Corsair LL120mm fans with Commander Pros to tie all the fans and lighting together, it’s not the easiest system to use and personally, not one I have used before so that will be a bit of a learning curve to suss out.   With all that in mind you might be thinking what case, out of the box supports all that and well, there aren’t any, or at least not that I know of and so I needed to come up with a solution.   Enter the Raijintek Enyo, or for this, two of them.  The Enyo, if you are not familiar with it is a huge open frame chassis designed to mount a system to the front and additional water cooling and power supplies to the rear. The modular design of this case is what caught my eye though, it seemed quite feasible that I would be able to create a flipped mirror image of the front of the case and install that mirror image to the rear. So the cases were ordered in and arrived this week, I then spent the day planning out the design and making sure everything would fit. Once I was confident it would, then it was time to drill some of the panels and build the case into the final; design.   I’ve had to modify a couple of bits to get it all to fit but overall it's worked out great, the bottom shrouds are typically used for radiator mounting and fans but these are going to be clad in backlit acrylic and will house the PSU and lighting control. The front and top of each side will accommodate the cooling and since it’s built for up to EATX boards, I can then easily fit both systems. The glass on this is getting some small detailing for Intel, something that’s not going to draw you away from the system itself.   One interesting point about the Enyo is it comes with predrilled bulkhead holes. In planning the idea was to pass through the coolant from the pumps on one side to feed the opposite loop and vice versa to get a contrasting coolant for each side.  Now it’s here, once everything is built the system is going to be so heavy and complex that for taking this to Intel, that might not be the best option so I still need to figure out how to make that happen. It may well be that I keep the loops separate and just use a contrasting coolant. This way the system can be split relatively easily for maintenance and changing out components if ever needed.   So now that the case is built, it needs stripping back down ready for painting. The front side is to be painted blue, with the back being yellow, matching up to Intel's colors. While this is being painted the rest of the hardware should be arriving so I can get them built up for testing before fitting them to the case. I think with the colors and the backlit panels, case fans, and lighting this should be a nice bright system, not too over the top with the lighting effects   So that’s the plan, in theory from here it should be a fairly straightforward build, cable management needs to be spot on because of the open nature of the case but if everything goes to plan, this should be a pretty cool-looking system when it’s all finished. Il be dropping a couple more videos as I go through the build process so I hope you will drop by to watch them.   Until Part 2, stay safe all!

    One of the first things I have cracked on with is getting the GPU sorted out. MSI kindly sent over one of their RTX 2080 Super Gaming Trio X cards for use on this and a couple of other projects I have lined up. Once again I partner with Alphacool for the cooling and so it was straight on to getting the backplate painted.

    Not so much progress today, still figuring out the loop and other ideas but here's some more shots of the build so far.

    The 10920X is installed and I will be using the CPU block from my Pastel DX build, the trim will be getting a new coat of paint. I'm toying with a vertical GPU mount, mainly to show off the lovely details of the MSI 2080 Super, it looks fantastic on the Alphacool block!.

    The X299-Deluxe II looks amazing in the Antec Torque, I am really tempted to custom paint the shrouds but if I end up using it for another build down the line, it's going to need another coat at some point to match a future design, we will sleep on this idea.

    Our RAM has been de-stickered, just to keep it nice and clean. With that installed and the CPU block, it's looking a lot brighter inside the case. You may notice I have also dropped the GPU down a slot to open it up, there is still so much room and with it all being black there's potential to paint the interior motherboard tray and a couple of other details too. Again, I won't be rushing into this, really want to make sure this turns out perfect!

    Mod83 got a reaction from BiG StroOnZ in Building a PC for Mumbo Jumbo   
    In late 2020 MSI got in touch with me to create a system for a client of theirs, this was to be a gift for Christmas to replace an aging system. At the time they couldn’t tell me much, just that it needed to be a show build but not over the top, have a black and white theme, and that under no circumstances should there be a hint of rainbow puke anywhere.

    That sort of brief doesn’t make things easy and then, more pressure was added. Once MSI and the client confirmed everything they wanted in terms of hardware, they could finally let me know who this system was for. This was a system for a guy called Oliver Brotherhood, or, as he is more commonly known, Mumbo Jumbo.

    Now I will admit that I didn’t have a clue who he was and so I had to have a quick Google. It turns out Mumbo is a Minecraft influencer with close to 7m YouTube subscribers, having an 11-year-old son who plays a lot of Minecraft, I mentioned Mumbo Jumbo and he immediately got excited, he knew exactly who I was talking about. At this point, I’m starting to feel a little old and out of touch

    In terms of the hardware, the only choices I could make were for the CPU loop and power supply, between Oli and MSI they picked the hardware list and I am sure this was done before AMD 5XXX launch. Now the 10900K isn’t a slouch by any means but I do wonder if Oli would have gone with AMD or if he just simply prefers Intel-based systems.

    I am more than happy with how it turned out, especially given the time frame and the brief. MSI wanted to keep the 3090 Suprim 24G air-cooled to show it off and that meant I could keep the CPU loop a little more manageable. I didn’t know how much experience Oli has with filling and draining systems for maintenance and so this way, it keeps everything really simple.

    As I mentioned, my lad loves Mumbos videos, and its great for me to be part of something where by me building Oli a system, he can then in turn make more content and then go full circle. Will sure put a smile on my face to know my lad is watching content produced on a system I built!

    Mod83 got a reaction from minibois in Building a PC for Mumbo Jumbo   
    He also added this in the comments so explains some parts:
     
    READ BEFORE COMMENTING ABOUT SPECS/RAM!
     
    Minecraft runs on a single core, which is why I opted for this CPU as it's a good balance between single core performance (turbo boosts to 5.3GHz) and multiple cores for editing. I did look into AMD offerings but this still seemed like the best fit for me... And now I prepare for the million replies saying I am wrong!
     
    Second note - I didn't mean to read the specs twice, so it was an accidental flex, but a hard flex it definitely was.
     
    Third note - I ALLOCATED MORE RAM in the end (I forgot to do it in the first test). I went up to 8GB as I read that is the optimum, allocate too much and the data clearing causes spikes (This is something I experienced on my last system, however it's totally anecdotal!!). One thing to clarify, while in the shopping district it only ever reached 60% usage before being cleared, so it likely wasn't bottlenecking anything there. (Once again, could be wrong)
     
    Fourth note - keep in mind I was playing in 4K resolution while recording, my actual framerates without recording are slightly higher, and in windowed 1080p are MUCH higher (But I can't play at anything less than 4K!)

    Heard from MSi that he was having issues, part of the reason he needed this out so quick so maybe why he wasnt showing stuff.

    Just seen, and to be honest kind of gutted I didnt even get a mention in the video 
     
    Given this was a weeks worth of time in terms of build, plus planning, emails, etc its kinda disheartening. Never mind, lesson learnt, Il keep plugging away with builds.Dont get me wrong, it was a fantastic experience and great to be involved, I mean 180k views and 20k comments in an hour based around a system I built is great, more for MJ than me but I suppose thats the way this "influencer" stuff works right?

    In late 2020 MSI got in touch with me to create a system for a client of theirs, this was to be a gift for Christmas to replace an aging system. At the time they couldn’t tell me much, just that it needed to be a show build but not over the top, have a black and white theme, and that under no circumstances should there be a hint of rainbow puke anywhere.

    That sort of brief doesn’t make things easy and then, more pressure was added. Once MSI and the client confirmed everything they wanted in terms of hardware, they could finally let me know who this system was for. This was a system for a guy called Oliver Brotherhood, or, as he is more commonly known, Mumbo Jumbo.

    Now I will admit that I didn’t have a clue who he was and so I had to have a quick Google. It turns out Mumbo is a Minecraft influencer with close to 7m YouTube subscribers, having an 11-year-old son who plays a lot of Minecraft, I mentioned Mumbo Jumbo and he immediately got excited, he knew exactly who I was talking about. At this point, I’m starting to feel a little old and out of touch 



    So with Mumbo needing his new PC rather quickly, I didn’t have much time to get a full build log going, plus it was kept under wraps. Now, finally, I can show off what I came up with as Oli has the system to hand and is planning to release his own content on this system.

I didn’t know how much experience Oli has with filling and draining systems for maintenance and so this way, it keeps everything really simple.

    As I mentioned, my lad loves Mumbos videos, and its great for me to be part of something where by me building Oli a system, he can then in turn make more content and then go full circle. Will sure put a smile on my face to know my lad is watching content produced on a system I built!
