Build

2018 AMD Ryzen 7 2700, RTX 2070, Meshify C Dark TG

by Viper24k

Description

Did not realize the Wraith SPIRE had an additional cable to control the RGB until weeks later. I had figured "hey, it's red, AMD is red" - I'm good. Later found an article where someone had trouble syncing their Wraith with their motherboard... Reopened boxes and found the cable... Found the hidden/covered port on the side of the heatsink shroud. So much better! Don't forget that! I added 5 Noctua fan's in December.

Image 8 reminds me so much of my build. I have a similar motherboard and cooler and the same memory. I am also planning on getting as STRIX video card.

Looks really nice, great work!

Great job, but if you spent that much on a pc I think you would be able to afford a cpu cooler.

Thanks! I actually do have plans for a noctua cooler, but I wanted to do testing in stages. I only bought the extra case fans after the build. Started with stock cooler and stock case fans, then swapped to full noctua fans- then I'll try a noctua cooler. My main focus was the meshify, I am really interested in the fan cooling with this case. My secondary thought was possibly waiting for the next Ryzen processors and installing a cooler then... We'll see!

Same process to access RGB on Wraith Prism cooler. However you have to unplug the other connector to change the color.

Awesome build, the wraith spire is my favorite looking stock cooler

What does it look like with the dark TG panel on?

Just for reference, image 6 does not have the dark TG panel on. But next, image 7, the dark TG panel is on. It reduces the brightness perfectly for my room, it sits pretty close and on eye-level on my desk. I was considering the normal non-dark panel, but I'm so glad I went with dark. It feels more elegant in my opinion. Additionally, images 9 and 10 for sure have the panel on, the entire room is dark and I'm pretty close to it taking the picture. This was shot with a pixel 3, with night shot.

Thanks, I created a build almost identical to yours and I just wanted to see if my assumptions about the case panel were right, and they were! Looking forward to building in this case.

Very cool build, I really like the pictures you take (good quality, pretty clear)

I was wondering how did you use the 5 added Noctua fans you mention which I can't see in the pictures, It's something I'm really interested on. I plan to make a similar build and I was willing to use the Noctua NF-A15 (140mm) as the rear exhaust fan. According to Meshify C specs only a 120mm fan will fit, but as the Noctua NF-A-15 has the same hole spacing as a 120mm fan I wonder if there is clearance on the case for it.
