Mr.Lucky

Abandoning that other build site as builds.gg is better in every single way....
I realize this is not half as pretty as some of those amazing builds out there, but I really enjoyed building it.

The Good
  • Heatkiller components are so premium when compared to blocks from any other brand. In the past, I had used both EK and Phanteks GPU blocks for the same graphics card. Watercool's Heatkiller IV makes those feel toy-like.
  • Barrow fittings have triple seals with 4 O-rings in total. While they're not as good as Bitspower fittings, they were alright for the price.
  • Radikult Custom's distribution plate is designed for a D5 pump. EK's own distro plate has better port placement, but it doesn't support D5 currently.

The Bad
  • Lian Li vertical GPU bracket for this case is just terrible. It bends the riser cable. I had to add support and washers to make it work. I don't recommend getting this bracket. I know it's very inviting to buy the same brand as the case, but it's not worth it.
  • The riser cable that comes with Lian Li's vertical GPU bracket only supports up to 8 GB/s max. An RTX 2080 Ti can exhaust that in a PCIE 3.0 x16 under very heavy load. I've replaced that cable with 64 GB/s max cable.
  • O11 dynamic XL is a great case but I wish these heavier cases had detachable handles (or some mechanism for carrying).

The Ugly
  • Not happy with the way ML120 Pros look.
  • I don't like that silly ROG logo on the motherboard.
