Looking to upgrade from his aged gaming rig, our client commissioned us to build him a state-of-the-art gaming PC. He wanted the best GPUs, the best CPU, the best cooling system, and all in gorgeous show piece package. Naturally, we were thrilled to fulfill his dream PC request.

This powerhouse PC turned out the best strongest PC we had ever built, shattering our previous benchmark records. To allow our client to game at the most premium levels, we outfitted his PC with an i7-7700K, two GTX 1080 Ti’s in SLI, and 32GBs of DDR4 RAM. Built on the gorgeous Asus ROG Strix Z270E, this PC also had a blazing fast 512GB M.2 drive, a 1TB SSD, and a 1000W EVGA PSU. To hold the beautiful PC, we chose the Phanteks Enhoo Luxe TG, a marvel of premium quality in the case world. For the custom loop system, we went with the always reliable EKWB. The RGB monoblock cools both the motherboard and CPU in tandem, while the twin 1080 Ti waterblocks cool the GPUs. Complete with a D5 res/pump combo, a dual slot SLI terminal, and two EK radiators; this custom loop kept this powerful PC very cool, even under 100% stress tests. For finishing touches, Cablemod custom red/white cables, five Corsair RGB SP120s, and Thermaltake’s Vivid White coolant were selected to give the PC some added flair. The client and the Lotus Team were thrilled with the awesome result.

After suffering the loss of his custom loop PC at the hands of clumsy delivery people, our client contacted us to build his brand new PC. We were able to salvage some of the broken PC’s components for the new build, like the custom loop pump and cooling blocks. So, we set out to build the client’s new PC with a eye-catching black/red theme.

This monster of a PC is packing some heat; an Intel Core i7-6700K on the fierce Asus Maximus VIII Hero, 16GBs of Corsair Vengeance Red LED RAM, two liquid cooled Asus GeForce GTX 980 Strixes, and an EVGA 1000W GQ PSU. The EKWB custom loop was perfectly integrated and artfully pieced together, working toward both amazing form and function. The two Alphacool radiators were each equipped with triple Corsair SP120s, allowing for exceptional cooling. Upon seeing his new PC for the first time, our client was overjoyed at the result.

While we won’t go into a specific build (yet), here are some ideas on building a streaming PC.
