Gigabyte Display 8Pack Infin8 System at Computex 2017
Peter Donnell / 3 weeks ago
We’re not only good friends with 8Pack, but also big fans of his custom modding builds he creates at Overclockers UK. We sat down for a quick chat at this week to take a look at his latest Infin8 build, and we certainly left impressed.
The build focuses around a heavily modded Lian Li chassis. Of course, being in the Gigabyte suite, it’s also decked out with one of the latest Gigabyte Aorus Gaming Z270 motherboards. This system is no slouch in terms of gaming either, equipped with a whopping 3 x GTX 1080 Ti’s in SLI, as well as a heavily overclocked Intel Core i7-7700K processor.
Extreme Gaming Performance
The rest of the components used are hardly lacking in wow factor either. You’ll find a Samsung 960 NVMe SSD, Samsung 850 Pro 1TB, 2TB WD Black drive, and that drop dead gorgeous Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 memory. Powering this monster is the 200W 8Pack Edition PSU from Superflower.
Amazing Custom Loop
Ian is certainly adept at creating water cooled systems. While most consumers can create a custom loop of their own, few have the tool, skill, time or the R&D resources to do this kind of craftsmanship. The build uses hard tubing for the most part, but the devil is in the details. Custom blocks allow you to see the fluid passing through various parts of the build and the chassis. The glass front panel has been replaced by a built-in reservoir. This is a dual-loop system, and you can see the two colour coolants in their own sections of the front panel.
It uses a 240mm thick radiator in the top, cooling the CPU and motherboards. While a larger 360mm radiator in the base is supplying the cooling for all three graphics cards. This means maximum overclocking performance and low noise.
Overall, this is one stunning looking build.
The Infin8 systems are available on Overclockers UK, and there’s a few to choose from. They’re not cheap, but when you consider the R&D, tooling, and overall craftsmanship that has to go into creating each build, you get what you pay for.
