Description

My previous build was THE NANO GOD: AMD EDITION the end result was a bottleneck shitstorm because for the CPU practically having 2 cores (AMD A10 7850k) with an overclocked 980TI doesn't end well performance-wise this PC is a completely overkill mini itx build with as much cooling as posable and some of the most high-end components currently purchasable (2014/2015) this meant for overclocking/tinkering that's why the high amount of cooling capacity.

Sorry about the compressed to death photos.

MONITER RES: 2560x1080

MONITOR REFRESHRATE: 160hz

BUILD TIME: 20+ hours in total

MAX LOOP TEMP: 40c

MAX CASE AIR TEMP: 28c

LEAKS DURING BUILDING: 3

LEAKS AFTER BUILDING: 0

I USED THE FINE SPRED METHOD FOR THERMAL COMPOUND

THE GOOD

Overall the pc is great other than a few issues it is mostly perfect i can play games edit and render videos again and play games my DSL internet distribution cabinet finally is fiber so was finally updated to VDSL2 so i now have a fast pc and the connection to get things done (only 20/5mbps tho) if anyone wondering if im useing the wifi no im useing Ethernet.

THE BAD

Issue 01: My ram was damaged so that added 1 day to the build time also i had to pull apart the ram block top peace while the loop was filled and will have to fully disassemble and redo my loop at some point so now there's a ram water block just hovering in the middle of my case (4 months later i redid the loop without the RAM block)

Issue 02: The system just doesn't like low overclocks eather high or even stock otherwise it crashes after about 5-10min of load. (2019 it was strange but true and i never figured this out but got it stable for a few months at 4.4)

Issue 03: It's bloody imposable to get a good temp read on the CPU and also due to my main fan being controlled my CPU temp which is not correct its running at 100% at 45c when my loop is sitting @30c but GPU temps work 100% realistically i ran a benchmark for a couple of hours put my hand on both radiators and all 3 water blocks and the radiators were warm, not hot and the blocks were like half the heat of the radiators also i cant power 1 of the back fans as well as due to low heat output my room temp has go from 28c to 17-23c so im now freezing now.

Issue 04: notice how two components are not purchased the pc is only 95% done im also missing 5 LEDs for the water blocks (added the LEDs before it died never got updated photos)

Issue 05: the front panel power button is completely broken I have to use the power button on the motherboard to turn it on but its on the back io at least. I also had to plyer my way thru a metal support bar to access the fill port of the pump/res

Issue 06: THANK GOD I HAVE A AIR COMPRESSOR AND A HOVER basically, during construction, i ****** up big time not once but 3 times during draining/filling i lost almost all of my nanofluid by knocking over my container during draining and filling so in the end i had to fill 40% of the loop with distilled water the third time i turned the pump on and it sprayed fluid under the ram and PCI slot i removed and cleaned the fluid i was lucky not to kill anything it might have been the leak that killed the ram but idk it's been running for over well over 2 weeks and except for windows 10 issues everything works well to the result i wanted.

Issue 07: during attempted ram block reinstall the loop sprayed the back of the case and motherboard and me and didn't get under anything luckily but some went in my eye and i got some flu-like illness a day later so no i didn't die from poisoning but i couldn't get out of bed for 2 days and was in pain to the point where i felt like i was going to die i guess the moral of this event is not to mess around with a pressurized loop without draining.

THE BENCHMARKS

CINABENCH R15:

OpenGL: 112.30 FPS

CPU: 496

Update (01.08.2019) So after disassembly turns out the bloody paper/plastic label for the CPU/MB block was still on its base so for 2 years it was melting over and over and over and the CPU or MB failed one day so the build was surpassed by the Ebay Workstation.

what was the bottleneck shitstorm EXPLAIN cool build too

the amd a10 7850k is a apu with week cpu cores its efectivley a high heat duel core so combine it with a overclocked 980ti and it bottle necks to a point of unplayable for some games but the i-6700k fixis it compleatly thats why this build is called the intel edition

when i do the last upgrade i defintlay will do hardline the reason i dident do it for this build was becous it would have taken more then 2 days to get the bending purfict and i was limted on time

WHOA... You had lots of problems!

This Build is NUTS from top to bottom..

Really, Who Water Cools in a 250D with a Custom Loop? Never would have even thought that was Possible.

Great Work though, Pretty Amazing..

Going to stick with My Large Full Tower Cases and Huge Air Coolers though for my builds Grin..

How is your monitor 160hz? Says 144hz on the product page.

Whats ur mic?

My mic is the FLOUREON BM-800 and its conected to a FORCUISRITE SCARLETT 2I2 (GEN 1)

Thanks would you recommend that mic specifically or something like the audio technica?

  • 43 months ago

Honesty its a dirt cheep decent mic (20GBP) i would recomend something like a audio tecnica if you want a good qualty mic over usb but if you want to go studio grade i would go for something like the Razer siren pro with the acsesorys and a high end audio interface like a scarlet 2i2 gen 2 with a xlr conection to the mic and high qualty cables

ok i was talking about audio technica xlr version but sounds good

Oh you let your air compressor slowly build up pressure and then once it's full of air just point the nozzle where you need it, let it rip, and use the power of compressed air to clean your PC. A little overkill, but hey at least it's better than those tiny little cans of compressed air for cleaning stuff, because once those cans become depleted you're screwed whereas if your compressor runs out you just have to let it run to fill itself back up again. And also air compressors are far bigger so they can hold plenty of compressed air

And the pressure of those tiny little compressed air dusters is far less than what an air compressor (depending on the model) is capable of
