Description

So i'm back!

In september '18 I did my very first build, and in the meanwhile after swapping a lot of things in and out, I think I'm kinda done right now. Yes, more upgrades and updates will come, but for now, I've got other financial concerns.

My newest upgrades are:

  • The Corsair Crystal 680x White case: I'm very, VERY bad in cable management, and for anyone else like me with the same problems: this case is a breeze for people who can't manage cables. Especially when you remove the drive trays, there's so much space cause of the 2nd compartment. My former case was the H500 white from NZXT.
  • The cablemod pro cables: it gives such a more cleaner and more professional look. Thats what I wanted for a long time (i had the other cablemod white cables). I thought the cables were a bit more thicker (like more close to eachother), but it still looks way much better then the last cables. In some pictures the old ones are still shown, since I swapped the cables yesterday and made some pictures before that.
  • 4 extra LL120's white. Cause why not? I have the space now and in the former case I could fit 4 pieces of them (including the 2 with the AIO). And I kinda like a fully stacked case.
  • Thermaltake Riser: Since the 680x is quite more the 'airflow' case and I had the vertical option, I just went for it. And yes, it kinda looks cool! I don't play really heavy games that much, so I dont really have problems with GPU temperatures so far. Max i've seen is 78 celsius. I'm not the techy that dives really deep into stuff like that, but I think that's quite okay.

Next on the list are probably next gen ryzen and maybe motherboard. Not really sure about the mobo, but who knows since I'm effected now with the building virus. :)

Sorry I didn't see they were blue because of the LED strip that was blue. But nice build tho...

I have been keeping a close eye on the Logitech G560 speakers. I need a set of computer speakers and love the idea of the G560s but I've read a lot about driver issues making them almost useless. What has your experience been?

To be honest, I have no idea. I barely listen to stuff on the speakers, only when I’m in the mood when I’m alone and play stuff really loud and then it sounds quite good! But like said, I mostly play/listen on headset :).

great build! looking forward to changing my case, cpu cooler and fans to the same in a month's time

were the fans included in the case also white? for the vertical gpu orientation, did you use any additional bracing aside from the case's vertical mount?

Hi, thanks for your message :)

sorry for the late reply, if i can recall ... the fans where black (not white). For the GPU, I didnt need a special bracket or anything. Only thing you will need is a riser cable, thats not included with the case :). Got mine from Thermaltake, no problems with it!

ahhh yes, the fans that came with mine were also black. i was hoping in recent batches it was already changed to white but, oh well.

alright, i see quite a few options for the riser cable so i might try it when i get bored.

thanks!
