AMD Behemoth System Build – Part 1

Today, we kick off another one of our custom build projects and this one is going to be very special indeed. Over the next two months, we will be working in partnership with AMD to create the ultimate PC for multitasking – a system capable of rendering huge 4K video files while the user is simultaneously relaxing by playing their favourite games, without compromising on resolution or frame rate.

If you’re wondering what kind of system can do all of this, it’s technically two systems but all housed inside one chassis. This isn’t a new idea, dual system cases have been around for several years. The difference with a KitGuru dual system is that not only will it perform great, but it will also have a unique look since we have various mods and customisations planned for the system during the project.

Cooling

As well as working in partnership with AMD for this custom build project, we have also had some help from Corsair and Gigabyte. Both systems will be cooled by individual custom loops, so a separate loop for each system. The majority of the cooling hardware will be Corsair Hydro X, the system will be outfitted with multiple 480mm and 420mm radiators, dual pump/res combos, Satin Transparent Hydro X rigid tubing and up to thirty fans will be installed inside the chassis.

With all of those fans, it will be a challenge to make sure that the cabling looks neat. We also plan to create a full set of custom sleeved cables for both systems. Unlike some dual system cases, the chassis we are using allows for the installation of two power supplies so custom length and PET sleeved cables will be made from scratch. Other case mods will include a custom front panel, doing away with the glass front and making something that is more personal to the system and with an AMD theme.

We also plan to rearrange the chassis interior a little by removing the 3.5” drive bay cage and extending the PSU shroud to clean up the lines. Added to these case mods will be customisations of the cooling hardware and an AMD themed colour scheme running through the entire system using paints, hydro dipping, acrylic, LED lighting and I might even try my hand at custom vinyl wrapping some parts in this build too, so there will be plenty to look forward to.
