Very pleased with my very first real build.
Very nice, why dont you put the non rgb fans of the cooler in the back for more air
Very nice ram...
That RAM is simply arousing. Also, curious why you chose to have five fans as intake and only one exhaust. If you flipped your top two fans you'd probably get better airflow and temps
I was wondering that as well. If the case had fans on the bottom and the gpu was a reference design, I would’ve got why but that’s not the case. The top fans should still supply the GPU with air since the radiator kind of cuts back the air from the non static pressure fans but the build is awesome anyways.
Personally I'd suggest flipping the top two fans to be exhaust, and add three more fans to the radiator to establish push/pull on it. It would increase the cooling on the rad and increase airflow into the case; that paired with three exhaust fans in back/top, temps would absolutely drop. In fact at that point the PC would probably unlock flight mode.
I watched the build video from pc part picker about this case and this is the way they set theirs up lol I'm still new to this so I'll def be taking everyones suggestions! i appreciate the feed back guys.
I also based part of my newest build off of the video the PCPP did on my case, and I thanked Boy Scout for it personally. The caveat to their builds is they're often just building a practical PC with a standard amount of parts and fans. They rarely use a Powerlink or Hue+ or extravagant fan setups, or other semi-custom parts. Which its totally fine! They just make videos to show practical builds. I've found, however, that while they do know their stuff, so do plenty of other people on here. My first build I messed up my fan configuration and like 5 people called me out on it within an hour, and much less nice than I was lol. but I fixed the fans and my build was all the better for it. Coop is right we all have our opinions, and mine is I would consider putting three more intake fans on the radiator, and flip the top fans to be exhaust. With all those fans you may need a fan controller, but it's my belief that the extra cooling would be worth it.
I’d do it too but maybe 6 fans on the rad is a bit overkill. He has his reasons for the configuration that he chose, we all have opinions. “Flight Mode” xD I agree
push/pull is hardly overkill, if it cools more its worth it. Just look at some enthusiast builds with 12+ fans, with wicked temps, they'll tell you its worth it too! I just see a large amount of clearance between the Powerlink and the radiator...if there's room for fans, fill it with fans >:)
True that is :D
beautiful first build dude should last you awhile +1 :)
At first I freaked out cause I thought "holy heck, this build is better and cheaper than mine!" But then I looked at the graphic card, it's just out of stock and a price is unavailable. Great build though!
Such vile language on this good, christian website? Despicable!
good day fellow evga elite member! I too have a nice 1080 ti...
How much was the gpu?
