[Build Log]Singularity Cases Spectre - Nickel plated copper tube, 9900k, 2080ti SLI

If you're unfamiliar with the case here are some renders from Singularity's website.


I've been looking forward to doing a new build for awhile now. I completed my previous CL s8 w/pedestal build over a year ago https://www.overclock.net/forum/1808...-progress.html

Since completing that build i've been wanting to downsize when the new gen of GPUs came out. I came across this case and immediately bought it, it was exactly what i was looking for.

I like to do something new every time i do a build, this time its nickel plated copper tube.

If you're familiar with my previous build then you'll know i like to build in phases. This build will consist of 2-3 phases mostly because i still have to wait on the hardware i want to become available. I intend to start this build as soon as the case arrives.

I don't plan on making an overly detailed build log this time where every step of the build is detailed. I think the only area i may do that is when i do the copper tube. There is surprisingly little information out there about the process of acquiring the right tube, bending it, and the process involved in getting everything right.

Parts List
Colors indicate whether i have purchased something for the build or plan to. No color means i already have it.

Just picked up the first piece of new hardware i'll need. Ships 10/8/18, hopefully it comes a little sooner. Gonna have to get the txps out of the loop tonight and sell them to pay for this.

Got a shipping estimate from singularity for the middle to the end of September. Another 3-5 weeks for the case

Thought i would give this an update since my case is shipping soon. I should have it sometime in the next couple of weeks, lets hope singularity doesn't run into any more issues with production.

The delays on this case have forced me to change things up a bit. I'm going to be real busy into early next year which does not leave me the time to do the copper tube right away. I added an additional phase to the OP for that. I don't expect to do that part until February or March sometime.

Also, i've decided to change up the hardware i'll eventually use to the x299 platform after seeing the 9900k pricing. $500+ for a 16 lane cpu is too much so i'll be going with a 9900X instead(might change this, there is some virtualization stuff i want to do that may require more cores. Waiting for OC results and benches before i purchase).

I did receive my 2080ti from nvidia last week. The card i received was one huge disappointment. For starters its a below average chip which won't do anything over 2040mhz stable. The bios is also locked down on these cards so no flashing a higher PL bios like you can with AIB cards to get rid of the throttling. These two things could be overlooked if it weren't for the horrible coil whine. Its loud to the point it can be heard over all the fans in my case running at full speed. Unacceptable. So i'm sending the card back for a refund.

I did manage to snag an Asus dual OC 2080ti off newegg to replace this card. Hopefully i don't lose the lottery again. I'll have it later today and if its a good card it'll get a block put on it tonight.

I plan to build with my current parts as soon as the case shows up. Shouldn't take too long since all i'll have to do is bend tube and run the wiring. Already sleeved the PSU cables ahead of time based on the lengths singularity has listed on the website.

Status on my order has been updated to shipped, should have it in the next week. Plan to start the build shortly after it arrives. The last parts i need from PPCs are supposed to show up today so i should be good to go.

I got my asus 2080ti last week and its a good card. No audible coil whine and peak OC is at 2130mhz with +1000mem. I blocked it right away and with the gigabyte bios it games right around 2100mhz most of the time which is great. Temps are reaching right around 50C on the temp loop i set up for it. Can probably do better than that with a proper loop.
