Description

My Second Gaming/Work machine. thought I should go all out this time.

Build specifik for gaming and Octane Rendering. All the Aura RGB lights are just for my inner geek (child) ;)

started out with 2 MSI Aero 1080ti cards. but both had a defect, so had to change them. then i went with the Sea Hawks instead, since the Aero's simply ran too hot. now the temps are much better.

running with a OC off 18% on the CPU and 7 procent on the GPU.. working quite well i have to say. :)

could probably OC it even more, however, I im no expert in this, and dont wanna ruin something. the machine is running quite fast as it is, so its not power i need :)

Pimped it up with some Cablemods Cables, and modwraps, that I customized to my Seahawks, and looks gooood ;)

next item on the list, is a GPU Bracelet and something to keep the hoses from the GPU´s in place...

Very nice!

I think Jipster would've liked this build because management

Very nice, but why are you running it upside down? +1

thats this Case. its an upside down case... :) personal taste, and to try something different

Do you know if there is a version of this case that is not upside down? I love the aesthetic of this, wanted to mimic it, but with downgraded parts (so that I can afford it), but would prefer to have it not upside down :p

the 400C version is not upside down,. however its a bit smaller :)

Though smaller, would you happen to know if it still has adequate room for parts/cable management? Or would it take some tetris-like skills to make everything look nice and neat? Thanks :p

Tbh I don't know.. :/ not familiar with that case and exactly how much smaller it is.. sorry :)

Kinda wondering why you went with aero cards rather than other aftermarket cards with better coolers

  • 37 months ago

was a combination of different factors. when i started building, is was the only OC card on the market in my home country, of the TI. I wanted the Strix Ti's instead, however, they are impossible to get here, and even more 2. then i should wait 2 month more before ordering. i just couldn't do that :) am thinking on selling the Aeros and get the Strix versions instead, when they are more accessible. however the Aeros does a heck of a job gaming, and rendering..:)

Just a update.. ended up with 2 msi 1080 ti sea hawks instead :P going to have to paint em thou, so they fit properly in

ooh sea hawks, I've always liked aio cards, I find that they tend to have much more predictable and stable performance, so I stuck a hybrid kit on my 1080 which was aircooled in the beginning

  • 35 months ago

Way more stable performance and temperature.. feel for once I got controlle.. Oh nice.. did you do something with the tubes, or are they just "hanging"? Feel the tubes from both cards just are a bit in the way, and do t really know how to place em, so that it looks good in the esthetic of the build, of you get what I mean :p

  • 35 months ago

Honestly, I felt that there probably wasnt any way to move the tubes so that itd be less of an eye sore, guess its just a trade of aesthetics for performance. But what I did do is tie my tubes together so they routed the same way, they give you some straps in the evga kit, but idk about msi.

no nothing in the sea hawk, but am looking for a "cable comb" there is big enough for the tubes. or I have to get something 3D printed :P

If you're gonna make the rest of the build RGB, you gotta make the graphics card(s) RGB too! I don't know if 2 1080ti's were necessary, and to save money (and more RGB goodness), you could've gotten the STRIX 1080ti. Better cooler, you're not choking the card (as you are with the top card in SLI, which is a bit finicky sometimes), and has RGB as well. This still looks good, but I like pouring my thoughts onto a screen lol

but i agree.. looking at the visual site. the Strix would have looked awesome, and be better cooled..

Nice build, why the aero cards though?

I'm not saying they're bad, I'm just asking.

I just can't get into the inverse cases myself. It just feels wrong to me.

But your build looks great! Those GPUs are really cool. +1

thanks..:) yea the inverse is either youmlike it or not.. its a bit special. but for me, it just works :)

to make the RGB happen grab a kraken x62, plus its a 280 rad i think so better cooling

does the corsair fans sync with your interior lights? because im getting a phanteks case & i want the LEDS to color match each other.

  • 37 months ago

No.. they Are temporarily until I can get my hands on the coolermaster masterfan pro 120 air balance rgb.. http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/case-fan/masterfan-pro-120-ab-rgb/

Only ones I know, so far, that are Aura compatible.. so they are just until that, hopefully soon day:)

  • 37 months ago

Do you need a certain motherboard to run those fans?

  • 37 months ago
  • 2 points

The ones I currently use no, but the coolermaster's need onboard rgb controller. Know both Asus and msi has that. I wanna use the Asus Aura :)

Magnificent!! My only question is the psu 850w. The sea hawk sli is not too much for him? I mean, especially in overclocking, if a spike occurs, is the margin superfluous to bear everything ??

  • 35 months ago

It handles everything extremely well.. haven't had a problem, and I'm running a descent OC. Using if for 3D renderings n the GPU, so am testing the OC through renderings, where its running 130 procent power, 2-3 hours in a row. no problem :) but that is a future concern, that it need to upgrade my psu.. :)

This is the kind of build I wanted to see!! I'm getting a 7700k build for Octane + After Effects (No gaming at all) and am thinking of throwing 2 x EVGA Hybrid 1080ti.

Are those Seahawks noisy when rendering heavy stuff in Octane?

Congrats on putting together such a great machine.

Thanks for the nice words.. ;) No I do t think so at all.. changed the fans though, and am using a thermal temperature probe ti adjust the fans after GPU temperature. And made a custom fan curve based on that.. works like a charm. And during heavy octane rendering do the temps never go beyond 55-60 degrees Celsius.. after a little oc, my Octane benchmark score was 432.32.. really happy with this build work wise:)

The custom sleeves and neatness make this build look wonderful. You can tell that you really put a lot of time and thought into planning and executing. Really great job mate... :)

hey man i had a quick question that i cannot figure out!

Currently i am running the Corsair H100i V2 liquid cooler and it seems when i plug it in to the CPU header optional port on the motherboard the led logo on the corsair pump seems to flicker as well as the led fans i have attached to it also seem to flicker. Is this due to it being the wrong port? i know i saw an AIO port but i was not sure.>

Second question for this board is it seems when im in the aura software when i set the board to have White LED's they have a greenish or blue hint to them to where it does not match my 1080ti Strix card at all even though i have them synced. Is this normal? i am currently going through a possible RMA and just want to make sure before i rip my board out and have to reinstall everything.>

personal taste, and I think the idea is fun.. plus not something you see everyday.. makes people talk (as you can see in the comments) :P

and gotta say. love the look with the GPU's in the top
