Description

Newest build, I already had a HDD and a SSD so I re-used those parts for this build. Been planning to upgrade my monitor to a G-sync 1440p monitor...hopefully soon. Currently using my 27" 1080 60Hz monitor (sad face).

Clean, classy, and pretty. Good build! Any regrets/pros/cons with any of the hardware?

I love this thing, the only con/gotcha I have about the build is the location of the front rad with respect to the top spacing for the fan. I had planned two (2) 140mm silent wing fans on top as exhaust but due to the tubing and radiator "endcap" there isn't any space. Maybe a 120mm might fit on top, but I'm not sure. I'll check since I would like to have a 120 on top as another exhaust to keep things cooler.

What made you go with the mini tower over a mid/full? And do you notice high heats with everything in close proximity and with this case being what it looks like a lesser ventilated case?

I like mATX since I always use a single GPU. An ATX board just has that ugly empty gap between the GPU and the lower part of the board. I like mATX since you can get more compact builds and there is less wasted space. As for temps, after playing the Witcher 3 for a couple of hours, the temps were:

  • CPU max temp 58c
  • GPU max temp 77c.
  • Kraken fans at "performance" (50% speed)
  • Kraken pump in "silent" mode
  • Case fans at 100% ~1050 RPM (inaudible, these case fans are extremely quiet even at full tilt).

Considering this case has a solid front panel, I think it ventilates pretty well.

Thanks for the info! I'll start looking into mATX since I never plan on going dual-GPUs anyway

gr8 build but I think it would have been a better idea if you had gotten a MicroATX board unless you plan on getting an ITX case soon

The board is an microATX. It is the ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G, the case is also microATX.

Did you have to remove the bottom plate on the psu shroud to fit the x62?
