Description

https://youtu.be/AFVab0IvQ8A

2/13/19 Recieved an Aorus Xtreme 2080TI(temps are about 5C warmer underload than the Asus Strix 2080TI) and ordered a Aorus Z390 Master. I'm probably going to go back to my Castle 240 AIO, since the Ryuo doesn't work with Gigabyte boards.

2/5/19 Asus Strix ROG 2080ti OC GPU failed, displaying artifacts and crashing/BSOD.

1/23/19 Razer Nommo Pro stopped working over USB. Going back to reliable Razer Nommo Chroma. Bought a i9 9900K, Asus RoG Ryuo 240mm OLED RGB AIO CPU cooler, Razer HDK, Razer Nommo Pro Chroma THX speakers, Razer Nari Ultimate Wireless Headphones with Haptics Feedback & Cablemod Pro Blood Red/Black cable set. I am passing down my recently purchased extra set of Deepcool RGB fans & Gamerstorm RGB Castle 240 AIO to my son. Relocated the Quadstellaer's temperature probe to the GPU compartment so that it automatically opens the power actuator doors when the 2080ti hits 56C.

I decided to do a mostly air build, because I like to upgrade often. One really cool thing about this build, is that being inverted you don't have to deal with GPU sag lol. My previous build is a C700P with 1080TI SLI. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/ML7WGX

What kind of purrformance are you getting out of the cat?

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Her name is Shelby. She is definitely a part of the fam! As much as I love my PC, If I had to choose between this build and her....I'd choose her :)

bigpoopapop 3 Builds 6 points 6 months ago

Just add some RGB on her and sync it with your PC.

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I really like the RGB lighting profiles and diffused lighting of the Quadstellar. I may get a Gamdias RGB PSU.

that case is cooler than I thought it was!

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Me too...lol

ImPickleRick 4 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Wow, what an incredible just over the top build. I think everyone on here is jealous. lol

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 5 points 6 months ago

Thank you I appreciate the kind words. No need to be jealous we are all a part of the master race lol.

JDR_EZ1 2 points 6 months ago

Amazing. And what are your cpu temp.

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Thanks. CPU temp is 29C at idle. 49C to 55C gaming. The reason why a few of the YouTubers say that this case can run hot is because they starve the case for air by putting a radiator up front. When you use air cooling, the radiator should be in the motherboard compartment below the motherboard. I also removed the top GPU compartments GPU bracket. It lowered my GPU temp 5C.

I really wanna say ib4 feature. This is a gorgeous build.

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you.

Gnarlybacon8r 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

How do you add all the extras to your list, I’ve been trying to find out about this. (By extras I mean everything in the “other” section of the list)

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

You have to create the part in the list, when it is not available to be selected.

Gnarlybacon8r 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Yeah but how do you get it to show pics and stuff

rcmac36 2 points 6 months ago

This is very impressive, you must love your day job. Building this must have been so enjoyable!+1

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you. The building was definitely interesting, because you have an inverted motherboard... and you have to continually rotate the case to get to certain areas.

PunchyFisty 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Awesome build! Might need a bigger desk though lol +1

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

I just expanded!

Holy rgb chair

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks. I absolutely love this chair.

Cobbleborg 1 point 6 months ago

Nice build, and unique case +1

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you. I always wanted the Tristellar. I'm so glad I missed that case and got the Quadstellar!!!

Cobbleborg 2 points 6 months ago

I was wondering, are u planning on making a costum loop on this case, cuz costum loops on this case looks so cool, but it’s okay if no, cuz the build looks so cool

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks. I thought about doing a loop, but current AIO look better than CPU water blocks and I upgrade too much for a liquid loop. Asus has 2 types of OLED screen CPU AIO's coming out this year.

Check this out!! https://youtu.be/acdsjCyGDws?t=1m15s

This Quadstellar 1080ti sli build runs cool with 7 CF 120 fans.

Cobbleborg 1 point 6 months ago

I’m going to watch the video later and give u my thoughts about it, But oh my god it’s so amazing to have sli gpu running cool with these fans

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

The video is just of the actuators opening and closing the 4 compartment doors. It's very short. I also wondered if air cooling would be enough to cool this case....since most builds have a single GPU in the GPU compartment or a liquid loop. Fortunately they leave room for 2 more 120mm fans right in front of where SLI GPU's would be seated on the motherboard. With the 2 extra fans I am very happy with 1080ti sli temps in this case. I haven't seen anyone else do it, so it was a big gamble coming from a cool C700P.

SlimyG 1 point 6 months ago

I like how it's not a wall of RGB, more of accents. It's not like that GameMax Abyss, the one with the infinity mirror. 255/255

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you. I have gone rgb crazy in the past lol....I recently dialed it down lol.

CooproxXo1 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

This setup has much rgb

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

It could have more. I have been debating a rgb psu.

CooproxXo1 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

That would be good, but would the rgb be visible?

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

It would because the PSU chamber has a tinted glass panel.

3Prcntr 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

nah... get some NZXT hue+ for the desk and behind the monitor then call it good.

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

3 builds ago I had Hue+, Aer RGB and X62. Eventually I got tired of Cam software glitches and didn't look back.

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

I just got the Razer HDK!

GrandRoman 1 point 6 months ago

This is so sick dude. Im totally jelous haha. What do you do with this computer if I may ask?

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thank you. I play games, watch anime, torrents, movies etc.... My last Tower was a C700P. I started building many many years ago because I was sick of the progression of consoles. Even though I own every one of them since coleco. I wanted something that looked futuristic, and that didn't look like a typical pc tower.

khaznh 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Nice job! Are you going to decorate the room? Awesome tech looks out kind of out of place in there hehe

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks. Currently I have my PC in the bedroom, so that I can watch movies from the bed. When it comes to my wife and this room, I have no jurisdiction on how it is decorated lol.

ayodh 1 point 6 months ago

Hi,

Did the 1080Ti fit in SLI in the separate GPU chamber? Could you post a pic of it?

Thanks

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I only tried one 1080ti in the GPU compartment. Although I didn't experience any thermal throttling, I didn't like the high temps off of a single GPU. So because of that, I didn't even try SLI in the GPU compartment. If you are going liquid loop, I would recommend the GPU compartment. If you are going with air cooling, you are better off using the motherboard directly. SLI also looks way better through the tempered glass from the motherboard, once you remove the GPU bracket panel. One of my pictures shows this. You can add two extra fans to the already included 4 up front, to blow air directly over both GPU's in the central motherboard area.

Design1stcode2nd 5 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

You mentioned temps in regards to your GPU’s. So there was not adequate air flow in the GPU chamber? If so do you think this is mostly due to using dual GPU’s or just the design of the Quadstellar? (I see you addressed this is a later comment)

By removing the base of the GPU section do you feel this allows better visibility of your components?

I really like the design of the case but after I’ve seen builds in it I got the feeling it wasn’t really best for showing off the components.

Any feelings on needing to use an app for lighting?

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

Sorry I'm late to respond. I had to replace my Quadstellar with another new one because of an issue with one of the actuators.

I did try single GPU and temps were fine. When 1080ti sli is in the GPU chamber, it produces a lot of heat. Temps can be fine with an aggressive fan curve profile, but it creates a lot of fan noise. When you remove the GPU bracket, it is more visually appealing to see through the tempered glass panels.

I know a lot of reviewers dislike the app. I personally like it. The lighting profiles are awesome and being able to read the temps and adjust fan speed rocks!!

Aaditya1203 1 point 27 days ago

Just a genuine question, how hard was it to build in that weird-a** case?

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 26 days ago

It wasn't hard. It was awkward. Having to rotate the entire case takes a little getting use to, and the motherboard is inverted.

Aaditya1203 1 point 25 days ago

Well yeah, I asked because the case looked absolutely weird and I thought it would be hard to build. I just have one more question. How is the airflow in that case??

skygunner27 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 19 days ago

For everything except the GPU(separate compartment), airflow is amazing. Before I had a Strix 2080ti. It would max out at 76C in the GPU compartment. I relocated the Quadstellar's temp sensor to the GPU compartment to open the front panels when the GPU reaches 56C. My current 2080ti has less than stellar cooling, and reaches 79C-83C. It's no fault of the case manufacturer....I would make sure your GPU has a full 3 fan setup or pushes air out of the case.
