Modded Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic Home Workstation/Gaming Rig
 
First things first, an apology to bloodycrashboy whose thread I inadvertently hijacked when I first posted the pics of this - sorry dude, I thought it was a general show off your rig thread at the time so I sincerely apologise for that :ashamed1:



Now back to the build...


I went for deliberately understated and clean with this one, the only in case illumination is provide by the three side mounted Raijintek Auras 12's which are a deep purple in colour and the motherboard itself - you'll notice there's a little more than meets the eye when you dig a little deeper however.

Spec wise we have -
  • An AMD R9 3900X CPU, it's cooling is provided by a roof mounted Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R (non) RGB and three EK Vardar EVO 120ER fans in push configuration.
  • A Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master (rev. 1.0) Motherboard.
  • A 16Gb (2x 8Gb) Patriot Viper Steel 4400MHz CL19 DDR4 memory kit, these are B Die modules and ludicrously overclockable.
  • A 500Gb Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe as a Boot/Primary drive and a 500Gb 960 EVO NVMe as a secondary drive, I'll likely replace these with a higher capacity Gen4 drive at a later date.
  • A Founders Edition Nvidia 2080, this has been reflashed with an EVGA BIOS which allows the implemention of a custom fan curve and unlocks a higher power limit - it's running at 1645MHz boosting to 2100MHz, the memory is running at an effective 15800MHz with just a 105% Power Limit.
  • Last but by no means least, it's all powered by an EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G3 PSU - all the cable extension are Cable Mod flavoured.

The case itself is a custom modded Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic, you'll notice the custom front panel (which can also accommodate three 120mm fans) plus internally it now sports a backplate for the rear wall and a floor plate - the case itself is a neutral airflow configuration with the three side mounted intake fans and three radiator fans in push configuration extracting the airflow.

Thermals are excellent, case noise is minimal whilst gaming and virtually silent when working from home - all in all, I'd rate it as being almost top end in spec for a non HEDT platform; it's certainly able to laugh in your face at every task it's given.

Looks lovely mate!

Nice looking build, love the look of the case.
Do you know if the viper is B die for the 4400 only or applies to 3600/3800?

Thank you both, much appreciated guys :)

@RobM, I can confirm both the 4400MHz and 4000MHz 16Gb (2x8Gb) kits are definitely B Die (I own one of each) - I have no hands on with 3600/3800 flavours I'm sorry to say.

Meet the new monitor
 
Just a quick update -

I picked up a new monitor just after Christmas at the bargain price of 200 quid (it's normal retail price is 350ish) :D

Say hello to the Samsung S27R750QEU Space Saving monitor, spec wise it's a 27" 2560X1440 144Hz VA panel and care of a recent firmware patch now FreeSync/Adaptive Sync - it works flawlessly with my 2080.

Once calibrated the colour accuracy is excellent and the contrast is absolutely spot on; some reviews say it's brightness levels aren't so great, personally I find them to be just right for my taste - I'm one very happy bunny B) Just a new a TKL keyboard and a Gen4 1Tb NVMe drive on the To Buy List now.

Here is the repository of knowledge about memory. :)

@Avet, Thank you dude, the time spent hiding the various cables ultimately paid dividends in the final result - I've bookmarked your repository of knowledge for future reference ;)

@Bartacus, thank you kindly sir, the front plate also gives the additional functionality of front mounting fans like the Lian Li PC-O11 Air whilst still keeping the clean lines of the Dynamic - I'm really really happy with the end result :D

Its really disgusting how cases have dropped performance now and focused on aesthetics. Adopting Form over function leading to many choked pc builds.

Think the guys at gamersnexus made a campaign to all the brands to start thinking about performance and function of case features once more.

This case doesn't do that. The modded front panel isn't needed at all, it just looks cool. :) Airflow is excellent in stock form with this one. But for crap companies like Corsair, totally understandable.
