Description

Edit : Wow! Thanks for the featured build! What a nice end of the year gift :P I wish you all a happy new year and mostly, for 2019, a good Ryzen 2 and some competition in the GPU market :P

After weeks of planning, over 50 hours of building and time for video editing, I'm proud to present you my second crazy build.

You can see all the building in a 10min timelapse here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kqj1zu37bwM

Since my first one made quite a hit on Youtube, I wanted to try something even harder : brass tubing, parallel loop, all-around see through case with crazy cable management, vertical GPU, etc.

I haven't opt for dual GPUs this time because nowadays it's not worth it. Most of the games I play are not SLI compatible. I prefer to have just one card for now and it's also easier to upgrade.

The theme of the build is from the case brand, Singularity Computers. A singularity is the centre of a black hole. I called it Gargantua from the black hole in Interstellar. The name is sick and the movie is one of my favorite ever. This is why the music is from Interstellar also. I like the fact that it's a HUGE black hole and one of the most powerful thing in the universe. I find it fits well my PC!

In the video, you can see the RGB mode of the fans is also thematic. It spins clockwise around the case, like something gravitating around a black hole :P

For the final touch, I even signed my build on the Interstellar ssd covers :P

I also listened to the comments in the first video about bad lighting. So, to have a more professional look, I improved the lighting and also the editing.

Building exotic computers is a really expensive and time consuming hobby because you can't resell them at the same price you payed, since technology depreciates quickly. I don't know when I'll be able to build another one, but probably one day :P

Enjoy!

Good God dude! This thing is absolutely stunning. When I look at builds that become features, I always think to myself "Is that something that I would want to have". Sometimes yes, sometimes not so much. I definitely would want to have this! I am grateful to you for sharing this amazing build. Job well done.

cable managment TRACKS! So clean and modern +1 I love this and you did an amazing job on this!

andyshinn 2 Builds 4 points 2 months ago

What a unique case. I had never even heard of Singularity Computers before. Very well done video build. I mean, this video alone rivals most of the more popular PC build videos I've seen.

glerox submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

I'm glad to hear that :)

solin_c 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Its the same case as Post Malone's PC built by jayz2cents.

deeduncker 4 points 2 months ago

I saw this on YouTube and thought "this guy should post his setup on PC part picker" lol

glerox submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

haha you thought right :P

SakeBoy 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

Im in love... that cable management is perfection

Cyantan 3 points 2 months ago

So much respect for managing this godsend of a build. Maybe add a frontal shot of the internals w/tempered glass? +2 (Switched to a second account so I could +1 this twice)

glerox submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks! Ok I'll see what I can do for other shots. Of course now my PC is no longer in the kitchen lool.

WOT???

VictoriusII 3 points 2 months ago

Nice! Only the graphics card looks a bit ugly because of the see-through part of the block. Good job!

customgtp 24 Builds 3 points 2 months ago

This is so mesmerizing... Absolutely stunning build +100

Stingrider907 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

This case is honestly my favorite case out there right now. Just the way that it integrates water cooling into the build is fantastic, and it looks amazing. Great Build

xGrampz 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

Do I sense a featured build in front of my eyes? Job well done my friend!

Radox-0 5 Builds 3 points 2 months ago

Very Yum. Love that case and really dig the colour theme. Very nice work!

Nice! I see you in the first pic, lol.

Josh.Hockman 3 points 2 months ago

You're an artist.

glerox submitter 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Thanks, in fact, I do consider exotic PC building as a form of art :P

XCMills 3 points 2 months ago

Truly I say this: what a work of art this PC is, and after watching the time lapse I can say that it filled me with awe and sense of wonder. Congratulations on your success.

sz3343 3 points 2 months ago

Such an amazing build! Love that cable management. It's so clean and the lighting is soothing. Congrats on the feature as well! Definitely deserves it!

Pachimaniac 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

Saw this video on youtube earlier. It all looks amazing The cable management is eye candy. Those white LEDs are mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Insane PC. Must've been difficult, but so rewarding to build.

susw12 3 points 2 months ago

Blown away! Absolutely stunning work. I'm speechless.

Johnnyboy2300 3 points 2 months ago

That cable management is very satisfying

TGND 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

Rare I see a PC where the front AND the back are a work of art. Kudos. Amazing build dude.

daUnitedpotato 1 Build 3 points 2 months ago

Oh. My. God. That is so beautiful.

CuyMasterGaming 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

I died of astonishment as soon as I saw this xD. Is it possible for a computer build to get more perfect than this?

glerox submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks! I really appreciate it :)

HiResJunky 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Amazing build! The all in one case from Singularity Computers is compelling. How did you find building in it?

glerox submitter 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

It wasn't easy! Cable management was the hardest part. To fit all the cables in that little box besides the PSU took me hours lol.

M1AF 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Goals.

DuoOne 2 points 2 months ago

What a cool build, you really impressed with the cable management! I have a question though, why didn't you use a cheaper MSRP Evga card to use a water block on it?

glerox submitter 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Because I thought the fastest way to get the 2080 TI was to pre-order with Nvidia (but then realized I was wrong lol). If I'd do it now, I would not buy a Founders Edition, especially since some of them had problems and don't overclock well.

DuoOne 1 point 2 months ago

Ahhh, thanks for that answer =D

onepropervillain 1 point 2 months ago

THIS IS SEXY AF!

TheClasherJesse 1 point 2 months ago

I’m wanting to build with this case but my issue is the dust. I don’t see filters, I mean positive pressure will keep the dust out for the most part but for the fans ya would kinda need filters

Lardybob 1 point 2 months ago

it looks like it has gallium liquid cooling

JGFMK 1 point 2 months ago

You forgot to include the Vive Wireless Adapter to your part list/Youtube comments.. See 5:55 in the video. Nice build. Been following work of Singularity Computers for a while. Did you have any issues with your founders edition 2080Ti?

PcDude12 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thats so great i watched the video yesterday and im seeing this today :) support this is one of the best builds on this website

PcDude12 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

also i subed

MadeInChina_O69 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Really nice build! I love it! Im wondering what are the exact water cooling parts you used(copper or nickel ekwb waterblock for cpu and gpu, rads)? I am also wondering if the rads are copper like it says from looking them up. If it is will galvanic corrosion occur?

OzGultekin 1 point 2 months ago

just watched it on youtube... amazing... amazing... this is p0rn

antwonjl 1 point 2 months ago

The real question Though... Can it play Fortnite?

chew6acca98 1 point 2 months ago

k.aloha 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Medvediy 1 point 2 months ago

Hey! Awesome build! How do u use so much SSDs?

Gibbytronix 1 point 1 month ago

That is my setup list lol

rtx-onoffon 1 point 1 month ago

Is that a custom made pc case>?

JMorre 1 point 1 month ago

Good heaven, this is amazing peice of art.

roccob33 1 point 1 month ago

So I had seen when researching the z390 aorus master, that all the bandwidth runs through the chipset/m.2 ssd slot, did that cause any bottlenecking issues for you? And if so how significant.

dabballfool 1 point 17 days ago

Will this run 4k at 130 fps?

elijah_da_baws 1 point 15 days ago

Love the metal tubing. It goes perfectly with the case. Nice work!

RickyM3911 1 point 6 days ago

I am looking to buy this build, but can i ask why there are conflicts flagged in the part list? I dont want to mess anything up because i am okay building pcs, but bad knowing the tech. I usually have a friend helping me with this. Please reply!
