Description

This case is tricky to build in. Temps are fine while playing games and simultaneously streaming despite what you may read on the web. Things learned are that this case will take up 1 USB 3.0 MOBO socket and an addition USB 2.0 header on your motherboard. This was troublesome considering it is a mini-ITX form factor and this MOBO had only 1 USB 2.0 header. I ended up ripping out the fan controller that came with the case to free up that one 2.0 header that my AIO needed. Imgur album: https://imgur.com/gallery/8rj446t#

How do you like those monitors? I was looking around online and saw mixed reviews. Also if you're looking to improve GPU thermals in that case im sure you already know this but for anybody who doesn't having an sfx power supply helps airflow through the psu shroud.

The monitors are great especially at the price they are at right now. Temps were good. Long duration of playing GPU never went over 79 C. Thanks for the input!

Beautiful rig, boss! Perfect space for a 3-monitor setup, an enormous amount of desk real-estate available, window for natural light. I love rigs where the main parts of the build illuminates the inside, without any need for lighting strips.

Would you happen to have a shot of the case turned on, with the side panel on&off, so it would show the lighting?

Unfortunately I do not. This was my first build in the RGB age and it was aggravation. So many proprietary softwares and hardwares dedicated to RGB. I actually ended up ripping the fan/RGB controller and LED strip out of the case because it was unnecessary and took up a USB 2.0 header that I needed.

Completely understandable. Personally, I don't want to use any strips / controllers to illuminate the inside of the case. Do the fans, RGB on the mobo, AIO pump, and GPU's LED light up the inside of your case enough to not need any strips?

I'm planning to add some lighting to my case by changing the stock fans on the case and the 2 push-pull on my Hyper 212 Black. There would be two 2-140s in the front, 2-120s on the CPU's 212 for push-pull, and a single 140mm on the back for exhaust. Do you think white-LED ML120/ML140 fans alone would be enough to light up the case to show off the components?

Yeah the fans are RGB controlled by the AIO cooler. The MOBO has a controllable RGB strip on the right side and the GPU can be changed as well so the strip was pretty overkill.

Yeah those fan models are basically what I have as exhaust on the back and top and they provide pretty much all the lighting. The way those fans are lit are like incandescent bubs it scatters and spreads really well

Could you perhaps tell me if you either underclocked the card ore are running it's fans at high rpm? I also built in this same case (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/hDsZxr) but with a 1080 Ti and my card is getting terrible temps. It's either that or having the fans at 60-75% of their top speed which makes a horrible noise :/

Anyways, sweet build, I hope to get an RTX 2080 TI soon. I didn't think it was possible in this form factor to be honest.

No underclock. Set a fan curve that is basically x=y and my temps are mid 70s (C)

Its not low but its not too high.

Case fans are also on an x=y curve as well. CPU stays very cool.

Bought an rtx 2080 but temps are just plain awful. Nearing 100% GPU Usage i'm seeing upwards to 80s (C) and that is with having the fan speed at 80% and the case fans at 80% (this makes a **** load of noise) .. Also at 1440P like you :(

Is that radiator exhaust or intake?
