Second build since 2012. Overpaid for an FTW3. Runs Excel like a beast. Girlfriend loves it.
+2 for the title alone.
Also loving that VEAG CPU cooler.
Wow. It's very powerful and I love the aesthetic of it. The cable management is phenomenal, but is there any reason that the CPU block is upside-down? I'd give it a 9.9/10, just because I can't deal with the positioning of the CPU block.
Wow, so clean! Love the cable management. I'm guessing the CPU block is upside down because otherwise the cable would be covering it if it was right-side up.
Thank you. That and the tubing was a little too close to the top fan as I'd like.
I'm assuming the CPU block is upside-down to keep the tubes clear of the fan above the motherboard
Yep. It wasn't too bad when I guided the tubing through the 24pin right-side up, but it still got in the way of the top fan and covered the RAM and AIO RBGs at that point. Figured if I'm gonna spend a ridiculous amount of money on some lights I might as well show off the LEDs.
How do you control the RGB leds of the Corsair fans without Lighting Node Pro or Commander Pro?
The Lighting Node Pro is somewhere in there.
With that 1080 Ti I bet you could have 50 sheets open at once. #ExcelBeast
Nice build +1
I look the look of the AIO cables running behind the mobo power. Might have to steal that ;)
Wasn't the first to do it. Stole it from somebody else :D Looks mean in an S340!
Indeed it does. Do you like that case so far? Thinking about going with it for my next personal rig update.
It's a great gaming case, which is what I use my PC for. Only issue I came across (which wasn't too bad) was the internal cable management. As organized as I tried to make it, the PSU shroud got really crowded with all the cables. You can look at the part list and see what I have going on. Ended up stuffing some cables inside the HDD bay. If your next build will be similar to mine or have less components, it's a great case.
Is it possible to hide the EVGA reversed logo by using their windows app and set all values of the RGB to zero (to make it black) and hopefully blend with the black from the block header?
Pretty sure you can turn off the LEDs
Does the Gpu sag very much? is that why you bought that holder,or did you just want one just to be safe
It did when I first installed it. So I bought the bracket and it helped, although I could tell the GPU was pressing against the bracket rather than resting on it.
I cleaned this rig a few weeks ago and attempted to remount the GPU which was a success. Doesn't sag as much as the first time it was mounted and I'm not using the bracket anymore.
Sag was due to a mounting missalignment with the mobo and case. Easy fix.
Awesome glad to hear
Thank you for the catch Isaac. Will update in a few.
