Ultron 2K17



So I did another update to my rig, figure I'd update it to the latest generation and replace my Z97 board and loyal 4790K.

My XSPC Raystorm Pro was getting pretty oxidized so I upgraded to the EK Evo, and also I hated my Primochill 240 reservoir, thing leaked in the beginning and was too big for my setup. Opted to try Heatkiller's reservoir and I love it. 

I also sold my Asus MG2789Q (144hz, Freesync, IPS, 1440p) and Samsung 34" SE790 ( 60hz, Ultra-wide, VA, 3440x1440) monitors and picked up a Asus PG278QR (165hz, G-Sync, TN, 1440p) and Asus PG2789Q (165hz, G-Sync, IPS, 1440p). 

Asus ROG Maximus IX Formula Intel Z270
Intel 7700K | Overclocked to 5.0Ghz @ 1.3v
Trident Z Series DDR4 3200 RAM Kit w/ RGB LED Lighting, 32GB (4x8GB)
EK-Supremacy EVO - Gold Plated
Heatkiller 200mm reservoir w/ MultiPort top
Bitspower fittings
Phobya PWM fan spitters
NZXT internal USB hub
Some cables here and there.

Planning on deliding maybe in the future, temps are easily managed with my loop though.



Here it is all 'lit'.

thirsty

Mated my 2x EVGA 1080 GTX FTW cards to a couple EK Acetal + Nickel GPU blocks and EK backplates with an EK FC Terminal Dual Serial block. Re-routed some lines and replaced some faulty fittings that were leaking as well. For coolant I used Mayhems pastel white. 


Temps load (Dry):

CPU: 42° (previous loop)
GPU1: 85°
GPU2: 80°
VRM: 45° (previous loop)
Coolant Temp: 33°

Temps load (Wet):

CPU: 47°
GPU1: 48°
GPU2: 47°
VRM: 50°
Coolant Temp: 39°

Dropped temps almost by half under water.


Firestrike Extreme (Dry):
SCORE: 16 125 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080(2x) and Intel Core i7-4790K.


Firestrike Extreme (Wet):
SCORE: 16 542 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080(2x) and Intel Core i7-4790K.

Gained 400 points just with cooler temps.

sad panda

Sold my FD3S on Sunday August 7, 2016.

Was time to part ways and let a new owner continue on with it.

Made tons of friends and have a lot of memories tied to this car.

Possible EVO X MR.
