root@nullbox:~$ whatwentwrong -vv

What went wrong? It's been over a month since I've reported on Pureille; the reason being that a faulty power supply I purchased for it fried the motherboard and 2 of my 4 sticks of Crucial DDR4. After weeks of wrestling my inner demons, as well as the technical support department of my old PSU's manufacturer, I finally managed to complete Pureille.

Decompressing kernel... Done!

Well, it's finally done. I didn't think I'd be able to complete it after a certain incident with a power supply that set my completion date back several weeks; but yet I found the light at the end of the tunnel and successfully finished my latest build. Originally I was just planning on updating my old build writeup on Pureille over here, but PCPartPicker kept 503-ing me every time I tried, so if you want to see Pureille before it's "official" completion, check the link above (It also contains a more-detailed writeup on the various components of Pureille). I'm also working on engraving the case window (not shown in pictures), but I'm still waiting on the machinery to do so, making an ETA of that completion vaguely known at best... As always, if you have any questions about Pureille v1.0 or previous revisions feel free to comment and I'll try to answer them to the best of my abilities. I also read a comment asking if I might create a guide on how to watercool rigs using Sharkbite tubing (the tubing pictured above), so you might see a guide or two on how to do that pop up here within the next couple of days. :)

{ Thanks for taking a look at my build. }

That GPU is begging to be added to the loop.

I really wanted to, too, but the heatsink was somehow fused to the GPU mainboard, making it impossible to install the correct water block, or any water block for that matter...

That's very odd. Are you sure that it isn't just the thermal paste keeping the cooler attached? Or can you see some sort of fusing, like soldering or glue? I'd guess it's just the thermal paste keeping the cooler attached or you aren't undoing all the screws.

What a masterpiece! Great photos too! I normally don't like green LEDs, but this with the green LEDs and the blue cpu block looks absolutely awesome! Superb!!

Do you plan on eventually water cooling the GPU as well? Pretty dope build.

The nice thing about the Sharkbite tubing is that all I have to do is "clip" the piping and add a couple more fittings to "upgrade" the cooling... perhaps in a few months I'll upgrade to a better GPU and do this. ;D

what power supply failed for you? Did you have a decent enough experience with their support team?

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2. Returning it was easy enough but support wasn't very helpful.

Sadly, this is the 2nd out of 2 things I've purchased from EVGA that have failed (The first being an old GTX 560ti), although on the 560ti the support I received was amazing; they even went as far as to install OpenBSD on a spare machine to replicate my setup.

How long did you have the power supply? I just purchased the 750W for my rig (EVGA 750W G2) based off of amazing reviews from a variety of sources (TTL, Johnny Guru, etc.). Do you know what was wrong with it? Did they replace your broken hardware?

I just lost my previous reply by bumping my "back" macro on my mouse so I'll make this response a bit shorter...

1) I had it for about 1 day

2) No, but it shot green sparks out of the exhaust and refused to power on again

3) EVGA doesn't do that AFAIK, but Asus and Crucial were more than helpful in this regard.

on a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your case, because that is literally my favorite case of all time, i just havent bought it yet.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

I give it an 11 (thousand).

There's more than enough room to install components, the metal is easy to drill through, and the whole thing smells like pine needles when you take it out of the box; plus the side-panels are detachable and you can request Corsair to give you free spare panels if you need them. I only wish the back-panel spacing was a teensy bit wider so I didn't have to spend so much time organizing my cables where nobody will see them in order to get the door to shut ;P

I would like to know how you go about requesting the extra side panels for the 760T !!

Love the Case as well. Black on my two show dust quickly. Having a spare set of panels would make the frequent cleaning process Much Better.. Grin

I want it. I want your build. I want in and around my mouth. I dont care what components you used. It's too beautiful for me to care. That custom water loop ooooh myyyy godddddddd. +10/10 it was ok -ign I like your review for your power supply too by the way haha. all my base are belong to you.

everything looks great but the top vents always were a mistake on this case and the gpu looks very wimpy compared to the rest of the build

  • 52 months ago

The envy is real. This is beautiful! You should have gone with 2x4GB RAM kits and gotten two more so all your RAM slots would be filled. This is still incredible and makes me sad looking at my computer.

  • 52 months ago
  • 1 point

It was actually a bit cheaper to buy 2 2x8GB over 4 2x4GB RAM kits, even though they were clocked at the exact same speed. This also allows me to upgrade to 64GB in the future... But I do agree that filling the DIMM slots would've created a more "complete" look.

Impressive! It's like hard pipe's, but in plastic and with fittings, so it's easy to change. Less pretty that a full hard pipe, but more convinient, and still very beautiful. Put a waterblock on that card, yo! +1

Have u tryed runing BF3 on ultra settengs??? Y a intle not AMd get 8 coars its more then 6 thats MOAR its means its faster aand next time try a R9 270 its da BOM i run crisys 3 MAXXd out at 200fps for reel nice try tho duhh

This build is gorgeous, man. I love seeing those which work to elevate the science to an art. Symmetry and harmony are so important in everything, and you've certainly achieved excellent balance here. And to persevere through such an unfortunate incident with the previous power supply really caps off a beautiful effort. Congratulations and kudos on the achievement!

I'm confused. Was that top part a joke? It's early. Anyway if it isn't then get bf4 and then try.

The color-changing LEDs makes it look mighty purty. Kinda looks like a prop for some high-budget scifi show. The good looks doesn't make it work any better, but it sure looks real nice to proudly display it on a work surface (rather than hiding it under the desk).

I certainly have no room to judge, but I think you should have gone with acrylic or some clear tubing and colored the coolant. Overall very nicely built and I am insanely jealous of the loop!
