Default Triton by World of Fred (Lian Li case)

Hey guys. I'm currently doing a new project for the summer. First of all, the sponsors: Watercool and Ballistix are returning for this build; On the other end, Lian-Li and Seasonic are joining the fight. On my previous builds, I was always prioritizing aesthetic over temperature. But for this one, with the help of the new Heatkiller's radiator and the great design of the Lian-Li case, I'm going to put more emphasis on the airflow to achieve the best performance of the radiator. This is why both radiators will be in intake and I'll have 3 fan exhausting the heat.


Before going further, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Snef, Duality92 and UFO Technologies. Snef is always helping me with my builds and he gave a great aesthetic idea for this build, it's always a pleasure talking to him. Duality92 is also helping me with the build and if you need a special 3D bracket, he's your man. Shootout to UFO Technologies for the custom coolant, it's nice to have someone helping others achieve their dreams by doing custom colored coolant.

Like usual, I'm not a huge fan of over the top modding, I like to keep thing sober and classy. My theme for this build is black and steel with a touch of deep blue. I hope you'll enjoy this journey and my build::

Hey, was really occupied recently finishing my major in finance and starting working full time this week. I should have more time for my project now.

I had the chance to take more pictures of the ram, took around 30 pictures, but only 3 of them really stood out.


Here's what the RAM looks like in Octarine, I really like the last pictures. It's gorgeous. Thanks again to Ballistix for sponsoring the RAM.



The ram is a great overclocker, I managed 3200MHz so far on Ryzen (this is a 2666mhz kit).

I received the PSU a while ago, I'll do a little photoshoot soon

Here's the PSU I received from Seasonic a couple weeks ago. I finally had time to do a little shooting, I'm not really happy with the pictures. I'll try to redo them later this week.
So, here's the box. I should note that I already had a Prime 850W Titanium, so let's see the difference between the Prime and Prime ultra


The packaging, almost the same. The metal effect on the prime is darker.


The modular cables are coming in a little bag instead of a little box


The PSU, in all its glory


The back of the PSU, we can see the hybrid button that is allowing us to have the fan off under a certain load.


The ports


The beautiful stainless steel grill. One thing you can clearly see here, is the paint have a rough finish versus the smooth finish of the regular Prime. In my opinion, I like it better this way.

Hey guys, I'm just passing by.

I received the case last week. Didn't have the time to do proper pictures. I'm gonna start working on it in 2 weeks. After that, I'm only waiting for the unreleased parts (CPU, GPU, and the fans). The build should be ready in Late September or early October.

I received my new SSD this week.


I'm gonna start working on the cable real soon, it will be a challenge haha

Hey, I received a little something today :D. I still don't have the CPU yet, so it's gonna take a while before I'll use it :/
Spoiler alert, I'm loving everything this board has.

Starting with the box. Nothing special so far, it's a box.


I like the way the box is opening and presenting the motherboards. It's like opening a treasure chest. I know it's been like since a couple years, but I love opening motherboard box comparing to GPU one. Opening a GPU is almost always resulting in tearing the cardboard after a couple times of opening it.


Here's my little baby, this thing sure is sexy. The design reminds me a little bit of the Asus board. You know? Same, but different.


The backplate is not something I'm gonna really use, but it sure is nice having one.


It's about time motherboard is starting to have real fins back. I like the initiative Gigabyte took last year with the Gaming 7. You can't see it, but there are 2 little 32mm fans under the IO cover. We can also see this board has 2x 8pin EPS, a first time for me.


I saw this socket multiples times on the net, but woah man, this is huge. If you're wondering how big it is, just take a 2.5" SSD in your hand, it's just a little bit smaller.


The chipset


It also has an extra 6pin PCIe next to the SATA III port if you want to do extreme overclocking of your GPU. 6 SATA III is a little bit short for a board of this price, I would have expected to see 8 minimum.


Here's an array of ports. My last Asus motherboard was really lacking in this area by only offering one USB2.0


The IO plate sure is nice, they followed the Asus idea by integrating the IO plate. Asta la vista cutting yourself.


Here's a reminder of how sexy this motherboard is haha.


If you were wondering what's the motherboard looks like without the IO cover, here it is. It's not bad at all actually


The reason I took off the IO cover was to replace the "old" wireless card (Intel 8265: Bluetooth 4.2 & 867Mbps transfer speed). Basically, I'll use an Intel 9260 (Bluetooth 5.0 & 1733Mbps transfer speed).

That is a very nice looking motherboard. Wonder about the two little 32mm fans you mentioned though. Do you think that is going to add much noise to the system? Maybe those are removed as part of your watercooling anyway?
