Water loop completed (no leak) along with black carbon fiber vinyl on case.
Installing Window OS at this point.

Window OS installed. Putting everything together. Then I realize that the waterloop bend is pretty ugly.

I disassemble everything to redo the waterloop bends.

Honest question, what's the point of such an incredibly expensive computer? Unless you're absolutely riddled with money this just seems like such an unnecessary expense when a $2000 computer could run probably anything available?

Hmm, could've added the extra $100 and went with the aftermarket GTX1080ti. For example, this: amazon link (https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GAMING-GDDR5X-Technology/dp/B06Y15DWXR/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1524074416&sr=1-2&keywords=gtx1080ti&dpID=51mp434TuBL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch), because the stock cooler is thermal throttling. Source: youtube link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXUo1S55ZUM)
edit: nvm watercooling lul

But overall this is a very nice PC you're building.

not that i understand alot about those things
Umm because I'm not building a laptop? :kappa:

Well for i9 processors, it will only benefit gamer like me just a little bit more fps so it's not really worth the 50%-250% more money over the one I bought unless you're some kind of content creator which Im not one of them.

I still can't decide whether to buy a Headphone (https://www.amazon.com/nuraphone-Bluetooth-Headphones-Personalized-Cancellation/dp/B076X4KH11/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1535546979&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=nuraphone&psc=1)($399) or a speaker set (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZI7URH/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A17IVE6SUAZA2P)($748)
If you guys prefer headphone over speaker or vise versa please let me know by voting up top. I will definitely go with you guys and buy the one that have the most voted on.

I'd suggest buying a headphone for$ 399 and send me the other 349$.

Speaker set 100% but tbh I don’t think its a good idea to send that much money on speakers.


Unreliable  Question:-
Asus (i7 7th gen / gtx 1050 / 1tb + 256GB / 16 GB ram)
Or
Acer (i7 7th gen / gtx 1060 / 1tb + 256GB / 16 GB ram)

Using  common sense acer is better. However alot of people sue acer products and reviews on the asus are amazing...

really insane setup, clean and nice to look at.
I would however never spend that much money on eye candy.

Also do you have really rich parents or a good paying job to afford all this?

I'm guessing people like him, knows how to utilize money properly to make it even more or at least have good savings every now and then. No wonder he bought his own pc on his own. I doubt parents helped him but you never know...

O-T: Pretty sick design overall. Though, I agree with Arjen, I wouldn't spend that much on looks as well. But hey, it's nice of you to share it with us! Especially liked how you constructed that water-cooling system.
