[Build Log] Thermaltake The Tower 900 Android Green (Revised) - Page 2

And is the monitor really worth the 1300€?

Yea I know what you mean I was really just running a fun loop for visual as I doubt I'll overclock my system to the extent that it would need two loops I know the p5 can handle win loops just run smaller reservoirs and pump.

May just start up with the basic build and sort the liquid cooling out few months down the line.

That is a really nice set up you have going on there.

I think it's worth the money. I paid $1K for my old LG on a few years ago before selling it recently. The Asus cost more due to GSync, the 100hz and curved panel. I prefer a flat panel, although the curved one is very immersive. GSync is also a necessity for any real gaming monitor hence why I opted for this one over some 2560*1080 versions without that.

Overclocking is part of the fun when building loops. I want to get a Octacore i7 next time even though the higher core count causes it to hit the thermal limits faster. Multithread performance is important to me becusse I use Photoshop, and occasionally edit videos or run visual studio.

I'm looking forward to seeing your build whenever you start. The P5 is a great showcase of what a PC is, I still want to make a wall mounted build too, but all of these ideas start to get expensive.

Yea I think its just the price e that's putting a downer on it but for the start it'll probably just get a cheap enough screen to get going and fine tune bits then afterwards buy the lovely screen.

I can see why you would want an octacore using these softwares mine it'll just pure gaming maybe some gam play footage editing but that the hight of it.

And will be delighted to share the build and after talking to you I jabe gotten a fair few specific ideas such as the purple so once the build is finished you sure can take some credit for the pre build process.

In the US it's cheaper because we don't have VAT (I noticed how you live in Ireland) and a little easier to swallow. I would pay $1500 for a 144hz version of my monitor if it also used a quantum dot or OLED panel.

You can always upgrade things later, plus we all know how much things change in the PC market these days. Having more processing power is something anyone can appreciate even though I could overclock a i7 6700K/7700K much higher than my 6800K.

Purple would look really cool, in fact I thought about a green orange combo too with multiple loops until realizing that I would need a massive tower to acc accommodate that properly. I still need to make some custom sleeved cables whenever time allows since that will take forever.

I appreciate that, when are you planning to build yours? I am eagerly awaiting my components to show up today so I can make time for their installation.

Yea Ireland has a 23% VAT on anything so really racks up the prices.

Procesing power is always handy my last build and an 3gen i7 and i had it running at 3.9GHz overclocked on air cooling was pretty sweet with 16GB Ram so was a good going good with the twin GTX760 wish i could find a picture off it but it was nearly 8 years ago at this stage.

Hopefully can get started on getting some of the hardware parts like the case and other things that wont be out date as fast as a processor or Graphics card and leave them to last in the next few months. But with a baby due friday week could get a bit delayed.

Green, orange are very vibrant colors so they would be deadly. Think i've decided on Purple and Gold.

Oh wow...been a while since the last message and I see you were hard at work. It really looks stunning. And I assume it runs real sweet.

I see you went with a Dual loop system looks epic.

But one question..why do you have a quad radiator for the processor cooling? A single or double rad would have been more then enough no?

I wanted a super tower to give me room to expand over time. Originally I was going to run a single loop, but it looked too empty. After getting the tower I ordered my second pump and reservoir thus making the build take longer. Finding a neutral coolant was harder than I thought. I thought about silver, then decided to get white. Mayhem's coolant looks fantastic, especially their green.

My Cable Mod UV Led strips haven't arrived yet, when they so I'll take some more pictures. I had the 2 240mm radiators laying around, and the case has room so I installed both. The manifold connecting them adds to the look. Eventually I plan on swapping both sides with 560mm radiators when I upgrade my CPU. Depending on how Intel's X299 turns out will determine whether or not those changes happen this year.

Ah i see..so this was more so to plan ahead than anything esle really.

Well i must say you've done an amazing job and i love the build so far.

What are the specs now? like Processor GPU and Ram?

Cable management it the front of the case looks very neat and the back looks well organised too. if you were to colour match the fans to each coolant that would be awesome. maybe something you can tinker with until the UV LED strips arrive?

My build on paper seems to be taking a change of direction too from a gaming rig to a work station. just with the new born baby i dont even get to play the playstation never mind PC Games so just to get somewhere to have all my moveis organised and music and so on. still be going for the liquid cooling but probably will tone down on the GPU and few other bits.

In the mean time buying peripheral items such as spray paint and case just to have something to start on.

Thanks, I like how it turned out even though some minor tweaks will be made. I haven't added in my drain valve to the GPU loop (forgot to order one on time), and I plan on adding Thermaltake inline temperature sensors with a display (see link below).

The CPU is still a i7 6800K, OC'd to 4.3-4.35ghz, but I might go to the X299 platform I'd the upgrade is worthy of doing. RAM is 32GB like before, but now it's Corsair Dominator 3000mhz mainly for the look. My GPU hasn't changed either, I'm running a EVGA 1080FTW with full EKWB front/back.

I thought about painting my fans before realizing they won't be seen so I opted against doing so. I want to remove the center 'console' in my tower and replace it with something smaller. I was going to reach out and see if anyone can fabricate a panel for me st some point.

I don't blame you, a workstation would be great no matter how you end up designing things. I would wait for the next gen of Nvidia GPUs to debut this summer if you can. That would allow you to get more life and better performance long term at a potentially better price point.

Recently I started a new job, so time to work on my rig will be more restricted short term. I'd be happy to help out where I can if you have any questions. This was still my first OC build through it's many iterations (feels like 6 different builds) which allowed me to learn from my mistakes.

Here is the inline temperature sensor I want to add for each loop: http://ttpremium.com/product/pacific-g14-digital-temperature-sensor/
