Description

This was the fist pc I built and I did a lot of research on the parts and components for this build. Also thanks to all the help I've received from r/comptutres!

Case

This case is amazing, a lot of space for custom water loops or any air cooled build.

Thank you! I was debating budget route or going all out and not having to upgrade for a while. As I say that the new 9900KS released today lol, already somthing new.

The 9900ks is just a 5-10% boost than the 9900k

Im pretty sure this mobo and cpu cooler are capable of getting a stable 5ghz, so im not stressing it too much. Rummors of the new 3080 ti got me thinking i pulled the trigger too soon with this build tho.

Nice Build. Any benefits going with the XL over the mid tower? I notice you have exhaust through the bottom and intake side and top.

I heard the xl had better airflow then the o11 dynamic. And thats how I just installed the fans when I built it andwas going to change it around once i got it up and running but the temps are crazy nice like this so I'm going to stick with it like this for now. Plus I think it looks better this way!

Just remember that in the current configuration the case airflow fights thermal physics - since hot air moves up and the fans tries to push the hot air out the bottom of the case causing turbulence. It might not cause any issues, but likely the fans must work harder to do the same job that it could have if you flipped around the top and bottom fans.

Other than that, excellent build.. wonderful planning with the color scheme and parts. I think you really went all in on that white with black details build. :)

Yeah it just looked good atm when I built it lol but im thinking of having the aio side intake, the bottom intake and top exhuast. I think that would make the most sense for airflow.

Thanks, I was going for all white at first but was hesitant with nzxt z390 with an i9 and the only 2080 ti in white is the galaxy HOF which is hard to find brand new in the states. Tbh i think i like this color scheme a lot better then the all white I was going for!

Incredible build man. This looks like the one I want to build soon. If you don't mind asking, where did you get your custom white cables at?

sweet first build. I like that case too

Thanks! I think the o11 dynamic is the best looking sub $200 case imo, so the xl was a no brainer, more space, better airflow, etc.

Great build. Why is the price high? its suppose to be $199

199 dollars for a rtx 2080 ti and a i9? Hit me up ASAP!

After tax S&H it was around $250 from newegg and they where the only people who had it on the release date.

That's the price with shipping and handling included. Not sure why it's $50+ though.

They just wouldn't be able to comprehend. Ever talk to a puppy and they do that cute thing where they know you're speaking logic to them, but they just can't understand yet, so they tilt their heads? Lmao that's what happened to me in GameStop

Your budget was ridiculous, but if ya got it, ya got it and every cent seems worth it!! Very beautiful build!! This is making me really want to go with a Lian Li for my next case, just the all black variant. Rock on!!!!

I see that you bought 12 fans but only 9 were used in this build where did you leave the rest or did you add the other 3 by mistake

  • 2 months ago

It looks like he replaced the fans on the AIO cpu cooler.

  • 2 months ago

I bought 9 of the corsair ll120 fans, and took out the fans that came with the aio cooler and used the ll120s on the aio cooler.

Edit: Just saw I added an extra 3 pack of ll120s in the build list, my bad.

  • 2 months ago

Hm, but what is the difference between the 3-pack and 3 singles? would you not also be better off buying another 3-pack for the aio replacement than 3 single ones?

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

The 3 pack come with the lighting hub, I only needed 2 lighting hubs so I bought 2 3-packs and 3 single fans. 3 single fans are cheaper than a 3-pack because the 3-pack comes with the lighting node pro. Just saves me some money thats all.

What are you doing to manage the iCue system performance draw? GamersNexus recently did a video on bloatware for RGB, iCue being one of the worst. Do you notice anything performance wise? Or do you set it up then remove it from start up?

  • 2 months ago

I dont think you worry about something as small as icue in the background on a pc of this caliber haha

  • 2 months ago

Hmm I never knew icue drew that much performance, I dont have any rgb programs open I keep them all closed from start up and open them when I want change the colors and effects.

Thanks! This was my 1st build so I wanted to document it as much as possible, plus I know a lot of people on here dont really post pics of the actual build so I wanted to show the process.

This build is amazing and it looks great too, I am using it as a template for what I hope to get in the future. I was wondering though what the "Custom Cable Mod" was, if you could let me know that'd be awesome!

  • 2 months ago

See for yourself: https://store.cablemod.com/product-category/pro-series/pro-cable-kits/#

His appear to have been custom ordered (which is an option but only for individual cables iirc) but you can take a look at their pre-made kits they have available with the link.

I bought it the extra 4pin cpu cable from amazon (this mobo needs a extra cpu cable i guess) and the 24pin cable and gpu cables from the cable mod website.

Did you plug some fans into the motherboard cause I believe the Pro only allows 6 fans no?

I have got to say bravo with this build it is a super clean build. this is similar to what I had in mind for my pc. I do have a question though are all the RGB lights controlled with the one program? also sorry for another nooby question but from my understanding liquid cooling need a pump and reservoir or is that only for the custom loops?

also i can only count 9 fans but theres 12 in the list. and the list says 2 x 8GB ram but all 4 slots seem to be occupied

Very very nice build bro! I’ve a question though, is that monitor good? I’ve a geforce GPU so how could I activate variable refresh rates since this monitor uses freesync? Did you just use a displayport cable? Probably a stupid question but any way please let me know how you like this monitor because I’m looking to get one, thanks.

This build sure is pretty, correct me if I'm wrong but the positioning of the fans on the radiator means that its pulling air in over the hot radiator right? Trying to get a better understanding of the best airflow practices for a new build I plan on doing.
