Like a phoenix rising from the ashes my Z77 was reborn into an x99.

While technically this one doesn't have the "award winning" moniker yet, I think its fair to say it would crush the competition.

That looks pretty okay, I guess, if that's all you can afford.

If I had to do it all again I should've went with a mATX or ITX board. Dunno what I was thinking. No one needs 5 pcie slots anymore.

What you should do is wait for Gwamps to post his weak-ass overpriced budget build again.

No 1080 SLI?
You disappoint.

Yes, I too like the B&W look and tidy cabling/tubing :up:

Thanks guys. The watercooling is pretty fun. I might try hard tubing next.

Sweet looking rig and great performance. The case looks really big though. What do you think you have invested in water cooling?

Post subject:  Re: I dub thee Data's Beard 2.0

Case is 16.34" x 13.07" x 18.03", so its like a double width mid tower.

Watercooling was probably around $600. 2 blocks, 2 rads, pump, reservoir, tube and fittings. Take that with a grain of salt though, it could be done for much cheaper with basic components.

The water cooling looks really cool and that's enough of a reason to do it. But does it serve another practical purpose? Are you doing some insane overclocking?

Post subject:  Re: I dub thee Data's Beard 2.0

Yes, also the more radiator space you can pack in your case the lower you can run your fans.

What kind of additional performance are you getting? Are you O/Cing the video care too?

Post subject:  Re: I dub thee Data's Beard 2.0

32%, yes.

This guy has a lot of water cooling tutorials on his channel.

but that's custom liquid cooling compared to regular liquid cooling, you get the prior for looks
