    Posted: 06 Jan 2019 at 11:38am
Hey all. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on designing my new pc. I’ve designed a system below and need some feedback. My main concerns are - is the psu big enough, am I silly adding the hardline tubing as I hear it can create issues , the sa,e goes for coloured liquid, does t gunk up?

I’m from Northern Ireland so want to design a system I can have for a very long time as it’s nkt cost effective to ship a new ds pc to myself every few years, at a minimum I’d like the case to be something I have for a very long time with the components lasting a good while as well but having the ability to be updated thanks in advance


Budget:
No more than $6,000

Expectations:
I’d like a pc that performs on a ultra level on all games that’s extremely future proof and aesthetically looks very unique and beautiful

Usage:
Main usage is for gaming across 2 monitors (38’’ and 24’’ acers with plans to add a third) my main game genre is simulation focusing heavily on farming simulator and euro truck simulator / American truck simulator but play a wide array other games as well. Other uses will include general everyday use eg browsing the web, some small photo and video editing, some 3d modelling (very little though) and modding form some games

Special Needs:
I need a design that is as future proof as possible that also looks aesthetically really cool, I have a lot of auxiliary it4ms connected to my pc inc track ir, wheels, pedals , gear and joysticks somwill need plenty of ports for all this.

Just off the top of my head, take off the noise dampening unless its paramount to you and GPU overclock as you can do that all by yourself, theres plenty of easy programs AND i think that the GPU itself comes with an easy one. I would also recommend going to soft tubing due to the long shipping distance the PC has to go or perhaps if you have prior experience just ask DS to not put the liquid in and store it in a separate bottle/container so it doesnt leak.

Your power supply is more than enough I would even go far as to say maybe a 750 is perfect. But I guess the 850 is just fine. I am interested in the lasermark you selected...

Pretty sure the other guys will be along shortly though to correct or add to mine.

Thanks for your response. While I know the Corsair fans are real quiet running fans my gaming setup sits above the main family room in our house, we’ve got some fairly noisey Woden floors which seem to carry a lot of vibrations through them (if I am I’m the room and my pc upstairs boots up you would think the roof is coming down as my Logitech wheel calibrates itself, so it’s not really for noise coming off the system that would effect me using it but more I’m thinking of the family below me and the quieter system might help them.


Thanks for your advice on the cooling. I am very torn between hard and soft tubing, hard certinally looks better but everyone seems to be recommending soft. But I think coolant being bottled separately is a good idea.

I’m hoping a n 850 should future proof the system in the case more components are added or changed for bigger ones down the line

Yea I don’t see to many specs that include custom paint and things like lasermark on them but I was thinking it would be something that would give it my personal touch and make it mine. I assume the laser marks are jsut something as you would get on and iPad or something? I was just going to get something simple like my online player name (jgregg624) with some sort of quote or something

With regards to gpu overclocking, it’s a free upgrade in the holiday sale hence why it’s on the list but when does that end?

Seems to me you've put a great deal of thought into your needs and your build. I don't see any problems aside from the issue of which tubing to get. Perhaps if you e-mailed [email protected] (rather than sales) you could get a candid assessment of the risk to you shipping it all the way overseas. It would be a good idea to have them send you some extra fluid for topping off. You should not mix two types.

I usually don't advise overclocking, as it's so unnecessary to get outstanding performance from the amazing tech we have available today, but you have both parts under water, so....

As mentioned, your power supply has more than enough overhead for the future. The free overclocks have been available for many months and are not holiday specials per se. All the best of luck with your purchase.

I will chime in briefly on the tubing selection and a few other things. First make sure you get a drain port added on for the hydrolux Pro whether you get hard or soft tubing, it will make future maintenance much easier when you have to flush the system(which varies depending on coolant type, usage, and a myriad of other things lol). Second with how DS uses fitting vs bends in the hardline now that creates that many more points for a leak to spring due to parts shifting during shipping etc. and last just be prepared to do maintenance on the cooling setup since it is a custom loop and not an AIO.

Thanks both for your advice. I’ve sent [email protected] an email asking about shipping concerns. One thing I stated is since I’m in no rush I’m happy with the production or shipping being extended or delayed to allow for shipment to take place closer to spring or summer months and so to maybe reduce the risk of the system getting caught in an extreme weather event.

I’m not fussed if I have to carry out some maintenance on the system. I like tech after all and you don’t pay that sort of money for a system and never want to have a play inside yourself. I have little to no experience with water cooling in pcs before but u do have good experience with basic plumbing and hydraulic/ pneumatic circuits which all follow a similar principle

Do Leaks in the hardline systems usually occur in the rubber o rings and ceals around the bends or does the tubes and fittings themselves have a high chance of breaking?

I’m hoping maybe extra packaging should be enough to keep it safe. Watching YouTube videos they seem to package products quite well. Though I don’t know of many others in the UK or Ireland with a ds system

Hi,
On hardline, the usual problems are the leaks through the o-rings in the fittings. In fact, soft tubing also suffers (I had to R&R 4 fittings on mine, an Av2 with soft tubing)
The main problem with hardline is that if you ever have to work inside the case, it does not give at all and it has no QDs to make work easier. Do special order the installation of a drain valve. It will be used.
You can tell DS to hold shipping until a definite date in the future in the comment section.

Management will tell you that they ship everything well packaged. They cannot control the perils of shipping. Mine came on a pallet and still had a memory card loose and a second one half out!!!
Good luck. Keep us posted. Big%20Smile

Thanks for the advice, after talking to a ds live chat rep yesterday and the comments in thus thread I think I will swap the hardline tubes out for soft tubes, not as nice to look at but should serve for a better job in terms of breaking, the potential to leak during transit and future upgrades.

I think getting a drain valve added is also a no brainier.
I will be sure to keep everyone updated with what happens
