Description

BLACK KARDUS, as in Bahasa: Kardus Hitam (Black BOX).

Well, I build this PC around mid 2015, since then I'm not that into showing off my build into this website cause it's so normal just for my daily gaming and so peasant without the puking rainbows rgb, default fans, a strix gtx970, and etc etc.

And now after +1.5 years with this pc , I've got to show my completed build here. So here I go!

CPU : i5 4690k is still a beast!

CPU COOLER : H100i is daymn good, maybe overkill for me not doing any OC, but yeah it's doing its job.

MOTHERBOARD : Asus Z97i-PLUS will do anything for such a small form, it's compact and complete!

RAM : 16gb, couldn't ask more for DDR3...

STORAGE : 1.5 years I've got into 3 different storages; first thing is 120gb ssd for my OS and WD 1TB for my games. But wait! That wouldn't do for modern games that needed faster loading and such #pcmasterrace, so I upgraded into 250gb ssd, and it's great!

VGA : THIS IS THE MAIN REASON I CREATED THE BUILD! The reason I changed from 970 to 1070 was that I've got such a lust for a 144hz monitor, so I did it, I bought the daymn monitor, but wait! DAMN FPS COULDN'T DO ANY MORE THAN 80fps TO REACH THE FULL POTENTIAL OF 144hz MONITOR! So I upgraded...

CASE : The reason I choose 250D as my case was that I've had to move into another city at the end of 2015, so I searched any small case that fit into my luggage. Corsair 250D is the one and it's a miracle ITX case, you can fit almost anything into this case, and it's still compact! Cable management wasn't so hard for me, but yeah it's not that neat, had to grab and push em' the cables into the bottom, close the upper panel, and boom! No problemo.

PSU : Seasonic X650 is just great, it's gold certified and fully modular and it's damn cheap on my country.

FAN : 2x120 NF-F12 for my radiator and a 140 NF-A14 for the front, everyone knows these fans are great, so..... ok?

MONITOR : My eyes feels good. Can't go back being a 60fps peasant, no regret!

KEYBOARD : Strafe RGB silent is good for my fingers, beside I never tried anything else rather than this mechanical keyboard, so..... haha?

MOUSE : Seached for the best mouse 2016 on Youtube and Google, found this, bought this, I'm happy!

OTHER : Deepcool RGB 350 just doing a good damn fine RGB strip, I can puke rainbows now.....

So that's that of my build, thanks for viewing this one!

did you got any problem fitting the strix 1070 in the 250D? i was looking at build a mini-itx setup, and using my strix 1060, which is the exact same size as yours. Strix 10X0 lenght: 298mm 250D max GPU lenght: 290mm

it just fitted perfectly, had to loosen the front case a little bit when forcing the card just to aligned it with pcie slot.

I'm quite curious as to what someone wrote that required a moderator to remove it. But besides that, what figurines are those? I have two in my build but yours look as if you assembled them like Legos. Please, I must know!

Malay/Indo? Cool build bro. Definitely sturdier (and more powerful) than a kardus :) :)

Have you experienced "coil whine" with that GPU under high refresh rate while gaming? (above 60fps without V-SYNC i mean)

so far I couldn't hear any coil noise from my GPU even under full stress, you experienced it?

Im glad to hear it! I have gygabyte 1070 g1 gaming and in some games with ultra graphics (for example Witcher 3, WoW) at 90 fps or higher i can hear the "coil whine" coming from my gpu. Its a little annoying but not as much as in other "coil whine reviews". At idle the gpu is silent ofcourse. I use also 144 hz monitor. Anyway Congratulaitons for your setup! Have fun!
