This is the cheapest GTX 1080 in the market. The performance is ok, but the blower fan is really loud. It alway make a noice event at idl. Better spend another $10-$20 more to get other 1080 that come with 2-3 fans and the backplate!

Custom

Solid ram at low price. Overclock to 2600 without problem.

Custom

Super quiet fan! With 12V, it will run at max speed around 1620 rpm. Near silence if the fan run below 70%. I use this single fan instead of two fans that came with H80i to cool the cpu.

Custom

I replace the Corsair Link with my DYI cable. Without this cable, I won't be able to install the Corsair pump face upwards. I chop and bend the USB connector to make it low profile so it won't interfere with the ram. You can get it cheeper from eBay but it will take a long time to arrive.

Get a $1700 overpriced mac, or get a $1700 gaming machine with the mac os.

If I was to pick between the trash can computers, I'd prefer one I can mod. ;)

Are the Noctua industrial fans any quieter than the stock corsair fans that come with the H80iv2? Look forward to seeing your build still waiting for mine in the post :(

Not dramatically, but yes the noctua fans perform better and are quieter that the stock corsair fans. The pump on my corsair AIO were the loudest bit though.

Yes, the Noctua fan is quieter than the fans that come with H80i V2. At above 50% fan speed, Corsair fans are getting loud.

FYI: If you plan to put the H80i V2 in the Shift and want the Corsair letter to face upwards, you would need the DIY USB header PCB motherboard cable.

My mb only has a 3.0 header so ill hook the pump up to a three pin molex adapter to the psu, then plug the fans directly in the cpu fan header, will probaly route a usb from the pump to the back of the io. Shifty as ;)

Faulty pci riser? Can you try it wth another riser if you have it spare, also remove your diy usb to make sure there isnt a grounding issue

Great built. How do you have your fan setup? Push or Pull?

Pull air through rad and out at the bottom. The PSU also exhausts at the bottom, so I do not recommend for push air since you will circulate the hot air from PSU back in to the system.
