    Sorry for starting a new topic for this new build but project gargantua has been dead for a while now. And since this one will most likely be my last one, well, thought it deserved it's own post instead of being on page 4 or 5 of another. I would delete the other one but i cant so any moderator, feel free to do so.

    As you can see i went with the Phanteks Enthoo 719 case. At first, it was going to be a Specter from Singularity Computers but it was taking To long to come. I decided to go with this one because i was going for a dual system with watercooled ps4 but again, i had to change plan since its not for me anymore but for my nephew. He will be getting the ps5 as soon as it comes out so it's pointless to put a ps4 pro in there. Instead, i will make it a single system build and he will be abble to add the ps5 system when he wants.

    Right now, i still need another order from DazMode so i wont be abble to complete it just yet but thought i'd share à couple pictures and the little story you guys just finished reading lol. I will update over the course of stuff i will be adding.

    Phanteks Enthoo 719 case ( will be moded to add some visuals based on Final Fantasy theme. Wolf head made in pvc will go one the glass panel. Also the griever necklace from FF8 in pvc will be installed on the front and i need to cut part of the bottom to be abble to better fit the XE 360mm radiator.)
    Intel Core i9 9900k
    Gigabyte z390 Aorus Master
    Asus Dual RTX 2080 Super OC evo x2
    Corsair PSU (Dont have it yet)
    Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 64g 3600mhz
    2x Samsung 970 pro 1tb
    CableMod Atx câble which will be moded by me for light blue/white/light gray sleeving color

    Think you'll like the Phanteks case. I have a couple of different Phanteks cases, I like them a lot.
    Nice kit for the inside as well.

      Yeah. Its a great case. Only downside is the bottom bracket. Have to cut à little to be abble to place the radiator correctly but beside that, only good stuff to say. As long as my nephew likes it, i'll be happy.

        Its starting slowly to take form. The fans on the side panel will be replaced once i get the second 480mm radiator. A PE 360mm or a Darkside X-flow 360mm will be on top. Still havent decided if i will make it a dual loop or single. Will depend on how much room will be left for one or two pumps. Click image for larger version

              Yeah. Will have 2 360mm and 2 480mm. Thats why im not sure if i'll be abble to fit 2 pump/reservoir combo. Saw a couple builds with them but only had 2 or 3 rads. Oh Well. I will be fixed Monday. I will receive my two packages from Daz with both rad and Kinetic combo along with other parts.

              By the way, delivery wait was a big fail with Canada Post and UPS but Fedex, wow. Really fast! I picked the fastest option of course but less than 24h to deliver to Montréal. Very satisfied because fastest options from the other two took respectively, CP never got my package in over a month and was sent back To DazMode bureau, UPS it took a little over a week. So if anyone is wondering which one is better in those pandemic time, well, you got the answer haha!

                Since i cant work on this build untill i receive the parts i'm waiting for, tought i could share a couple pics of my old previous build. I sold it around xmas and i miss it so much! I wish i still had it. Started the build 7 years ago. At first it only had 16gb of ram, 1x Titan and 1x 240gb ssd. When i sold it, it has 64gb ram, 2 Titan and 2x 1TB SSD. Tought it had 128gb ram but found the box this week and only 64gb lol... Only... At that time it was actually alot. Anyways, here's some pictures of it.. nothing spécial but it was running really good and it was very powerfull. Cant find the pictures of the upgrades tho. I know i had some but no idea what i did with them.. If i find them, i'll update...

                    Ahh, X79, the last good Intel platform. I still have one with a pair of GTX980s, gathering dust.

ID:	91196Cant count the number of times i wanted to put it in my order and just keep forgeting lol! Big thanks Daz! Because of you, people in Québec can get great parts for a very reasonable price. Best online store in Canada! Time to clean those parts and get that build done! Cant complete it yet but really close to it. No idea if i'll have enough time for one last order but sure hope so. Feel like i can maybe manage to complete it very soon!

                            Lol! I ordered the wrong fittings so i cant complete it just yet.. Ordered M/F extenders instead of M/M haha. No idea what i was thinking when i placed my order.. Must of been very distracted or something lol! Untill then, i still can show my shitty cable management in the progress.. Only at like 50% of the final result so yes there is room for improvement!
