    btw - Threadripper 2 is also rumored to be released in the next few months.

    Yes, I pulled the trigger on 1st gen TR. Got really good deal on it paid $666 (Saved $420 including taxes).

    I was able to do the EVGA step-up to the 1080Ti, but they pass out Founders Edition cards for the trades. If you want an 1180/2080 with an EVGA cooling system, you may have to buy it direct.

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind.

    @Necrophore I forgot to mention, it will be liquid cooled so the stock cooling system doesn't matter.

    640$ on fittings alone :fat:


    Good luck on the build mate. Did i miss it, i see no GPU ? 

    Yea, it gets pretty expensive; I will probably return some of them or save it for future loop revision. I haven't purchase the GPU yet, however I just purchase my RAM today.





    Decided it's finally time to replace my old rig after 5-6 years. I will continue update this thread later, just bunch of images for now.


    Build Parts:

    CPU: AMD Threadripper 1950x (Paid: $666.2   MSRP: $999.99)


    Motherboard: Asus ROG Zenith Extreme ($389 MSRP $550)


    RAM: 32GB  G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200 mhz CL14 ($545)


    GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti (Have not purchase yet).

    I need to choose my purchase timing carefully, so I can do EVGA 90 days set up program for the next gen GPU. 


    Case: Thermaltake Tower 900 ($219 MSRP $250)


    Storage: Samsung EVO 860 1TB ($228 MSRP ~$270)


    PSU: EVGA P2 1000 ($237 MSRP $279)


    Cooling: Custom liquid cooling parts

    Some more pics for your eyes only











    Mobo with Bitspower waterblock







    Installing the CPU






    Some challenges I faced so far:

    1) Reservoir mounting: can't find vertical mounting brackets that would support mine as far as I know of

    2) Wire management





    5.29.18 (added pricing)

    Still trying to figure out reservoir mounting. Currently using zip ties to hold it in place :doge:





    Installing some more fans

    New 3DS XL Galaxy, Ultra Sun/Moon Collector's editions, inbound to my house for Tuesday!

    I'm hyped, while I enjoyed my playthrough on Moon, it felt unfinished for story. From what I'm reading, Ultra shoulda been the base release for full story... But Nintendo gets my money, anyhow.



    Hype Boyz, Pokemon RPG confirm for Nintendo SWITCH!!! From what I heard Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon might be the last iteration Pokemon game on DS before they move on to Switch. Debating on trading my PS4 for Switch lmao

    Still working on this beast.

    Case: Corsair 900D

    MB: ASUS Z87 Sabertooth

    CPU: Core i7 - 4770K (Delided + lapped)

    Mem: 16GB Corsaid Dominator Platinum DDR3 1866

    GPU(s): EVGA 780 Hydro Copper x2

    PSU: Corsair AX 1200i

    SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB(OS) + 512GB(Games)

    ~3700 in pc parts

    ~1200 in liquid cooling parts

    Prices on most of the components have since dropped nicely though so it could be done for less (pc side, not on cooling)


    I dont think Proxus visit this forum anymore. I wanted to ask him about liquid cooling.

    I calculated my build will cost ~$3500 in PC parts and ~$1500 for liquid cooling. I want to do a build like this, I am in between this or a desk PC


  5. @lordawesome7 Ryzen 5/7 won't do. I only buy the best :doge:




    If I did my calculations/shopping correctly my final price including taxes should be: $1,667.84 

    Threadripper and Mobo alone: $1,041 (saved ~$500+)

    With EKWB water loop (~ $500 - 600)

    Total: $2,167.84 or 2,267.84

    I can probably drop the price even lower. I can buy bulk gift cards for 10 - 50% off.


    If I upgrade to 32GB RAM (+ $202.65)


    I want to upgrade my GTX 780 SC last. I kind of want to use as long as it can (paid $600 for it when it first came out). The current price for top end gpu with water block is kind of high: EVGA hydrocopper 1080 ($600+) and 1080 Ti ($800+)


    Total amount without discounts: $2,410 (without tax) & $2,617 (with tax). 

    Again with EKWB water cooling is additional $500 - 600. 

    Total amount without discounts including EKWB: $3,117.86 - 3,300

    Total Savings: ~$1k (w/ EKWB)

    There are some things I haven't consider: case fans, lightings, thermal paste, and some tools etc.

    Thermaltake Tower 900 Snow Edition

    There's one issue I would like to address. I really like this case but this super tower have 14 fans... 



    Product page: http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002974

    Corsair LL120 -140 RGB fans (best looking) don't come cheap. $35 each and 2-3 pack with Commander pro is $100 - 120. 

    The 8 fans (4 on each side) is more important than top 2 and back 2.

    Corsair offers 20% discount atm


    Anyone good with liquid cooling?

    Worth the build or should I wait till Summer 2018 or November/December 2018 when prices are cheaper?

    If you're going to render 4k videos, a lot of Adobe Premier, 3d Modeling then sure 1950x kinda makes sense. And, then Id get 32GB RAM and not 16. I also wouldnt do a water loop yet, that seriously cuts into your budget for no good gain. For a well rounded top performer for gaming and video, I'd get this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xhmYyf

    Water cooling would come later. Get the top parts, then get the water. I think you'd regret going straight for a custom loop right off the bat with what you could leave on the table.

    I will be doing at lot of solidworks and simulations for my Aerospace club and startup. The 2k isnt necessarily a hard cap, I just dont want to spend more than 10k a month.  I'm not too concern about gaming either, I hardly play anymore. 

    If I change the RAM to 32GB with water loop and 1TB of ssd below it will cost me roughly around $300 more than the ones you listed. I can probably get below that but I have to ask my brother in law. He is an expert at getting discounts.

    Going to have to agree with marine on the most part.
    It doesn't feel like a high end consumer workstation build is necessary.

    That and the storage doesnt really make sense for workstation.

    It's more on the line of something I want.  I'm not so sure about storage, I could get: 1TB Samsung EVO SSD for $200 or 1TB Samsung NVME EVO for $350. I dont need more than 2TB.

  7. Thinking about building a new PC out of boredom :doge:. My current rig starts to experience some lag, random corrupt bios and weird permanent black screen when I update the GPU driver (had to recover windows). 


    My old rig specs:

    Case: Corsair 750D

    Mobo: Gigabyte X79

    CPU: Intel i7 4820k

    Corsair AIO cooler for CPU

    RAM: 16GB DDR3 2100 (oc)

    GPU: Evga GTX 780 SC

    Storage: 2 TB HDD

    PSU: Corsair RM 850 


    Originally, I was going to upgrade my PC in the next 1 - 3 years. Not sure if I should wait a little longer. 


    Overall budget: ~3 - 4k 




    Plan on building something similar to this: 



    Debating between Intel i9 7900x and Threadripper 1950x. Threadripper 1950x is currently on sale for $699. Leaning toward 1950x.


    Asus zenith extreme best looking one right now. Gigabyte has this nice dual bios feature but I heard there's a problem during installation something to do with Foxconn.  

    CPU Cooler

    I want do an actual custom water cooling setup. Considering parts from EKWB. Not sure about pump/reservoir thing, EKWB offers two different type. 

    (1) 560 mm radiator



    Ram is pretty expensive, I like G. Skill Trident Z RGB. Thinking about 16GB for now, 32GB down the line.


    Going to stick with GTX 780 SC for now. I'm going to upgrade to higher end graphics (liquid cooled) down the line.


    Corsair RM 850 should be fine.


    Samsung 500 GB

    I also have Kingston 120GB (unused)

    Nvme SSD have to wait.


    Is it worth building a new PC right now or should I wait a litttle longer? Any suggestions

    There's a dude on Reddit who apparently bought "The Feast". I guess if $900 is pocket change for you, then by all means but this kind of bundle should really include all the rare tanks.

    Lul, there's that one guy

    You missed the ball.

    The thing with goods /luxury/ is about stating, i'm wearing tom ford suite and it costs 5 grand. You are making the statement, that's why luxury goods always have their consumer base. And always will have.


    Same is here, some will buy this just too rub in other people face. Why? Because they can. This is prime example of wealthy kids (and i can't blame them).

    Sounds like me :doge:
