[For Sale] [UK] Extreme 4K Custom Watercooled PC

#1

Here I have for sale my Extreme Gaming Computer that I built 3 months ago. A bit of background on this build, I started ordering and collecting parts for it around July time. Components such as the graphics cards were not very well stocked in the UK in that time period as they had just launched, the memory modules had to imported from Germany as there were none in this colour in the UK either. Almost all of the fittings, res, pump top and accessories for the res had to be imported from the Netherlands! This build went way over budget as I originally thought I could source most of the parts within this country, but oh well it has been a great experience never the less. The system was completed around mid October and ran leak and stress tests for a few days straight. After that it wasn't used much as I went away for a month. So basically total usage till now has probably been between 2-3 months. Now enough chatter and onto the important stuff.

Overclocking:

I built this system with silence and longevity in mind, not so much to break overclocking records or push my hardware to it's limits. That said I tried to see what I could get without sacrificing noise (aka higher fan speed). On the i7 I manage to get it stable at 4.6ghz with 1.36v. I played a few CPU intensive games and the overclock did show, but not enough to justify itself hence why it was put back down to stock (4.2ghz full time) and I dialed down the voltage to keep temps even lower. If left on default the motherboard will set it to "auto voltage" and that has caused temp spikes for no reason before so I really recommend anyone with a stock i7 to at least dial down their voltage to what it should be for the speed they run. As for the GPUs, with SLI disabled I can run with +220 on clock speed and +500 on memory, giving me around 2100-2140mhz in most games with temps being around 46-50C (that is with a rather warm room temperature!). When in SLI I dial down the clock to +200 and memory to +300 to keep it on the safe side as it can be more unstable.

So what do you get for your money?
You will receive this pre-built extremely powerful and very quiet gaming PC with a fresh install of a Genuine Windows 10 copy and the latest drivers already done for you. A lot of money was spent on this in order to build it with the highest quality parts I could find in Europe! It will be pre-overclocked to safe levels so you do not need to mess around with that and I will include all of the original packaging and manuals that I still have left from the purchase, most of it is sat intact in the garage. I will also help you get started and explain anything you are unsure about (components, how certain things work, how to safely overclock it even higher, how to adjust fan/pump speeds and so on). The system has RGB lighting inside which is controlled via a button at the front of the case. The case also has wireless charging for Android Phones as you can see on one of the pictures. The glass panel is tempered glass with a very slight tint.

The only problem I should mention is the little scratch at the top of the case which was caused by the delivery company. Thankfully since it does not affect the wireless charging module which sits under the plastic top, I have not been bothered to open a case and fight over it for a few months...

Payment/Delivery:

As far as payment goes I would prefer cash in hand or bank transfer once we have spoken about the sale. I am pretty sure most people who are serious enough to buy this, would ideally like to come and see it working first and collect it themselves. I am more than happy to drive up to 100 miles at my own expense to deliver the system and help you get started. I don't even want to think about what posting this system is going to cost once you factor in insurance and the fact that there are lot of fragile components inside! I will also find any other accessories I can include in the sale such as soft tubing and a funnel for draining and filling the loop, extra coolant I have spare, some extra hardline fittings I have laying about, spare o-rings and so on! The price is pretty solid, and in my eyes fair as this has cost me way over the £5500 mark to build as many of the parts had to be imported from all across Europe, and the system has not had much usage either!

I have many more pictures and am happy to provide any information you request. If you need to get in touch then PM me and we can arrange a call. Thank you for looking!

UK Buyers only!

According to your profile you are a basic user and therefore cannot sell on here as per the WTS rules affirmed here:

Additionally, the thread is not marked by the [WTS] flag.

(Someone correct me if I'm wrong here but I think the rules are clear and to be interpreted as I have done)

From what I understand he is a level 1 user as he is a basic user. Thus he should be able to sell his item as it says Level 1 or higher.

Trust levels:

There was also another thread that got locked because of this same "issue".

Yes. According to @MisteryAngel in the thread I referenced, trust level1 equates to Basic User. Therefore I rescind my prior statement in relation to trust level, OP can indeed sell on these forums based on that.

However, This thread still needs to have the [WTS] tag as part of the title as per the B/S/T forum rules.

It has a For Sale tag instead, to make it easier you know?

But seriously stop worrying about what the thread does or doesn't have, it's not going to kill somebody! :)

Have a nice day
