As white as it gets.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great, wanted to get 4.8GHz but was unable to :/

CPU Cooler

Makes a fair bit of noise but once you get your fan curve right, Never hear a sound unless under load. Makes a weird sound in the mornings/1st power up of the day.

Motherboard

Got for the looks, it's awesome

Storage

Should have got a 240 but will most likely get another 120 to fill the gap. The colour of the ssd is amazing i was expecting a red one. They need to market these more.

Video Card

This is the **** ! ! ! and the overclock amazing

Case

solid case heaver than i though, great cable management though getting the back on was a little tricky

Did you listen to minus the bear - 'white mystery' while making this and sing along with the chorus 'Whiiiite liiiight'? ;)

Great job! +1 Very well thought out build. Really good part selection. Its too bad more people don't have access to a micro center to get that 4790k for $275, with the 15% discount on the mobo. Would love to see some pictures of the backside cable management!

Micro Center's discount is a flat $20 on the motherboard (at least my local). It is not a percentage. It used to be $40, and still is for AMD's bundles, but not Intel.

You are absolutely right, thank you for pointing that out. With the cost of one of the boards I bought being around $135, I just thought it was a percentage.

Haha it's all good! It really stinks they took the Intel discount down to $20. Not that it would sway me to buy an AMD processor (I'm not a fanboy, I'm for team wallet). From my understanding Micro Center actually takes a loss on their processors so I'm going to assume possibly more people buy Intel processor bundles and that's why they lessened the discount from $40 to $20.

Yeah, every time I go to price a build and find parts cheaper online (not including the processor, no one can beat micro center), they match it to the dollar on every single part. Its rare when I have to make an online purchase for a component. They really take the cake, and I hope it is sustainable business because I plan to purchase many more processors from them.

Thanks for posting! One of the best things about these NZXT cases is the ability to hide the cables so well. Definitely helps in my s340 white widow build.

Thanks! I think it looks better with the LED's in white, it looks more clean. Just my opinion though!

yea in photos it does man, but in irl the wind force logo isn't pure wite, its like an off grey/white. Making the two lights not match, but i have made a preset for my x61 to be the same off colour

Soooo clean. Only thing I don't like about it is I am not a fan of the windforce coolers. Nothin against gigabye, or your build. Just not my preference.

Still get an A+ in my book.

i was original going with the strix but i didn't want a red build was just easier to paint the G1 as most other 980ti's don't come with a backplate

Hi man, amazing build. Excellent cable management! Where did you get the white cables from?

Also, I noticed the compatibility issue with the case and the length of the GPU. Has this been an issue for you?

  • 44 months ago
  • 1 point

thanks man. Just online for the 2 8pins and the 24 pin is a custom kit from cable mod i put together. The gpu fits fine in my case, you have to sacrifice 1 HDD bay out of the 6 you have, for me thats no problem as i only need 1 bay.

Nice build! I am going with the same case and hope mine looks as good as yours!

I have a couple questions if you don't mind 1)how's the ssd? Really considering it with some of the money I have been earning. It looks great and the reviews have been just as good would you reccomend it?

2) nice leds I am considering putting some in mine to get some good lighting. Where do you buy them and for how much? Where do they get power

If you could answer that'd be great, and again awesome build!

tbh- Personal the ssd for me isnt really a big deal, i only have my games/os on it. Have not seen improvement in loading speed, from a normal hdd. I can say boot speeds are high, but considering my pc is on all the time(if not in sleep mode) its not very beneficial. The ssd was a let down for me, main reason i got it is for the look :)

There are lots of different Leds most common are strip RGB ones, i didn't want these as it only directs light in one direction, so you will always have a shadow. The most common shadow is under the GPU, which i dont like.

If you getting The Nzxt case i would highly suggest the Nzxt leds (https://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/101-sleeved-led-kit-case-accessory.html) they are great and easy to position, it is powered buy a 4-Pin Molex Cable.

I'm making the exact same build.. (well, sort of). I'm deciding on either getting the Corsair H100i or the x61. Which one would you get? I'm leaning towards the NZXT. I also didn't know if you are able to change the LED on the x61. I really love this build!

Excellent Build. I have most of the parts here and based my build off this. I'm waiting on my case. Anyone here know the difference between the H440 and H442? Also, How the later models like Noctis 450 which claims better airflow and H630? They seem to correct the complaints I hear about foam airflow and backing (which is removed) but I'm not sure if the components for this build would fit as well. Any feedback is appreciated I'm anxious to get this going! Thanks again Trentzapro

TBH i dont care about airflow. I'm pretty sure any case over $100 should had adequate air flow. Just pick a case that you like, and get good fans that is good enough.

Nice build man :)

Did you spray the GPU backplate white yourself? or did you buy a white one from somewhere?
