Description

Custom waterloop in the Lian Li O11 XL using the ASRock limited edition X570 Aqua motherboard and AMD Ryzen 3950X Processor. Took me weeks of after work time to build this. Very satisfied with the result. The build has come together just as I had imagined.

I had to drill some holes in the case as the top radiator didn't line up exactly with the bottom radiator. Fitting the flow indicator was quite a challenge as well. I used some double 90 degree adapters to make the motherboard inlet and outlet line up with the distro plate holes. After finishing the build, I also spray painted the heat spreaders on my RAM to a metallic grey colour, to match my motherboard.

I think I found my dream pc...this thing is absolutely gorgeous! The mother board is by far the most gorgeous motherboard I have seen! This PC is a work of art! The pipes in this build look so clean and straight forward. The case displays a piece of machinery that displays itself as something that can perform any load you put on it and still look good while doing it! Great build, great build!

Damn dude... Any white Lian Li PC-011D build gets a like from me. Does the 'ROG Certified' emblem bother you at all? Kind of a blemish tbh... It would have been better to use a plaque like Der8auer, I think. Still a beautiful build though!

This may be one of the best looking builds I've ever seen on here. That pipe work you got going on there is immaculate. I also like how you kept the liquid clear, makes it look cleaner in my eyes. Your mobo cost more than my whole *** pc build lol. Thoroughly jealous... I'd give you more +1's if I could, great job sir.

Awesome looking build. Have you overclocked the CPU and GPU, and if so what temps are you getting under load?

Do you have plans to take advantage of the 10Gbit NIC on the board?

The PC complements the rest of your setup nicely. How much did the water loop cost? Usually when I plan out water loops I go to EKWB, but it’s super expensive there and it could easily push me over my budget.

Also. Your wattage is a bit under 550W. Why’d you get a 1200W PSU?

+1 for innovative fittings on the CPU block. I'd have OCD issues if that loop wasn't straight either.

Clean build for sure. I personally chose against the white XL case for mine, but it fit your theme pretty nicely. Only thing I'd have to say is that you could run dual 2080Ti's off a 1000W psu, and the corsair fans will have a tough time pushing through fat rads like that due to the loss of pressure. Temps will be basically the same as slim rads unless you're maxing your rpm all the time. Good work overall, I like it.

I see your point but honestly, that's completely subjective. If you were a dentist with your own clinic, you wouldn't scoff at spending 15k on a new tool/device/system. The same argument could exist for a programmer. A friend of mine puts 8k/yr in his budget for builds/upgrades - it's a tax write-off, a mission-critical tool, and a passion. He doesn't see those prices as anything but "fairly cheap for the power I'm getting", as he'd put it.

The point I was making is that consumerism has driven prices in this market beyond reasonable for good performance.

I respectfully disagree - again, "beyond reasonable" is totally subjective. PCPP has a build called "Excellent Intel gaming rig" for $1,500. Safe to say the performance is good and $1,500 is arguably very reasonable for a complete "excellent" build.

I think your point is more along the lines of "Top tier parts have become prohibitively expensive." To which I'd also respectfully disagree. A Bugatti is an elite mode of transportation. It's normal and expected that it costs multiples more than its "high-end" counterpart at BMW or Mercedes.

The X570 Aqua is an elite mobo. Heck, it's even a limited edition mobo. It's therefore normal and expected that it costs multiples more than a standard "high-end" competitor.

The elite category is always prohibitively expensive, that's part of the appeal. Only a select few can have this, and they'll have to pay the price to be so privileged.
