Maximum Effort **R7 1800X & STRIX RX580 OC**

Description

This is my Ryzen Build, It has been an interesting ride so far in her development. First there was multiple lost orders for the motherboard and then multiple DOA motherboards after that, but she is finally up and running and there is way more I want to do to her but I am very happy with how she is coming along. She renders video projects like a boss! I thought my FX-9370 was decent but this R7 1800X blows it out of the water! I rendered multiple items at once while downloading and extracting files and she never slowed down, hell I couldn't even tell she was doing major work as I was using her to do other projects! Let's just say she would have used up her 16 gigs of ram well before the processor would have started to bog down. I'm not sure what all the fuss was about the R7's not able to hold their own with games, I have BF1 (BF1 is major CPU hog) with all maxed settings (@ 1080P) with just a single R9 390 and my FPS floats any where from 90 to 120. Cant wait to see what she can do with a Vega video card!  *UPDATE* Her video card has been updated with a Asus ROG STRIX RX580 OC Triple Edition! Awesome to have a ASUS video card in her again plus it looks AMAZING! New Pictures below.​

Love the intensity of the blue against the red.

Re: Maximum Effort

That hard tubing looks great. I have made only one custom loop using flexible plastic hose (primochill I think). It looks better with hard tubing.

I want to see the new dead pool movie.

Nice build - I love to see chrome tubing set-ups and this one delivers! I'm with you on this one: I want to see the new DP movie as well!

Re: Maximum Effort **New VideoCard & Pics**

Thank You! I always wanted to do a chrome set but never did. I have done PETG, Soft and AIO liquid cooling but never metal. I figured "hell, new style of CPU let's do something different."

Spot on placement of that flow meter. I love it.

The fan LEDs are too bright for my taste. Would to see a white LED strip inside just to reduce the light pollution from the different light sources and give slight emphasis on the actual hardware and tubing inside.

I'd also replace those HDDs with SSDs. They consume less space and you get to use less cables. I also have 4 HDDs and 2 SSDs and I find them annoying. Planning to get 2 more SSDs so I can ditch my HDDs. I'll move them to my HTPC for long term storage of media,family and work files.

Just constructive criticism bro. No hate, just love

Re: Maximum Effort **New VideoCard & Pics**

Thanks for the kind words! The main reason I went with HDDs instead of SSDs is because of the constant writing and removal of data I do at large quantities with raw recording where SSDs tend to get "finicky" with that type of constant behavior. Another big reason is cost, SSDs still cost a pretty penny when you're talking about 6TB or more in reliable drives.
