Description

This is the transformation of my old rig to this new and beautiful rig. I use the rig mainly for gaming and schoolwork. I pour in my sweat and blood to slowly upgrade it and I'm finally satisfied on how it looks. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Note: The last photo is my old desktop that I beautifully transformed into this new rig.

I am trying to save my money and not buy what I don't need, as I am a bit of a noob because I have always been a mac gamer xD...... Mac can say bye bye now cause Im don with that bull **** :)

Hay man So can this computer run games like Bf4 and 1 and like GTA5??

If so, more then 50fps??

Thanks!

Yes. I'm unsure about BF4 since I don't have it, but for GTA5 I can max it out and get anywhere between 70-90 fps. It never dips below than 60.

Okay hey, I had a question since you seem to know how your build works it's really beautiful btw. I want to know if there is anything particular you would recommend or that you would change on it if you could have.

  • 36 months ago

Not OP, but I'm sure this machine can easily run Battlefield and GTA at 60+ fps, at 1080p.

I have a fx 6300 with the same 1060 max settings bf4 90+fps

Is it possible to fix the H100i's radiator to the top in this case ? Nice build +1 _^

  • 33 months ago
  • 3 points

No, it's not possible. There's not enough clearance on the top for a top radiator. The case even said it's only front radiator. You'll probably need a slim radiator or mod it somehow to get it to fit, otherwise the radiator with the fans will block your motherboard.

Aside from not having a top radiator, my temperature is still relatively cool for a front radiator and I get enough windflow as long as you have fans to the rear and top.

That looks insanely cool, plus a really powerful pc. What games do you plan on running?

  • 36 months ago
  • 2 points

Tomb Raider, Overwatch, Black Desert Online, Total War, and probably new games like BF1.

+1 for this really cool looking build. May I ask how you put that fan controller which displays temperature (assuming CPU or is it the ambient case temp) inside there?

  • 36 months ago
  • 3 points

I duct taped it to the bottom of the case. Works like a charm! Duct tapes solves all your needs. I'm serious. It doesn't come loose even if I flip the case upside down. I could screw some holes into my case to make it permanent, but hey, whatever works. :)

It's just the case temperature where I put hidden thermostats all around the case. I get more of an accurate reading from the GPU itself and the CPU cooler by using their software.

That is the older NZXT Sentry 2 touchscreen fan controller ..

Lighting comes from Deepcool LED Strip. And the thermo thing is from NZXT Sentry 2, but I think 3 is the newest one. Probably not the best idea to use that as a temperature reading for your hardware, but good for reading temperature around the various parts of the inside case.

Very nice and clean looking build there. Cable management is really on point. Great stuff, +1

A friend of mine has an i5 3570k and it's insanely powerful and overkill for 2016 gaming...! It's one of the best CPUs for the price

Yep! I do need to overclock it tho, but it's still working like a charm. It's like 4-5 years old. Definitely got my money worth for $199 back in the day.

Any non-conductive paint will be fine from Home Depot or Lowes.

You can either sleeve them yourself or you can buy some extension sleeving cables.

You didnt need watercooling, you could have just used a fan

There are a lot of pros and some cons about watercooling.

How did you paint the accessories? Im gonna get my P400 next week and this looks awesome and I would want to go the same way as you did. Didn't even think of painting it like this at first, but now when I see it - just wow. EDIT: Did you paint the fans yourself? What fans are you using?

How are you GPU temps with the radiator blowing hot air onto it? I have a very similar setup to this with 1 x exhaust at rear, 2 x exhaust at top, and 2xintake with radiator on front. GPU temps get to 82 degrees under full load and I'm hoping to reduce that somehow. What's your fan setup?

  • 33 months ago

Sorry, I don't check this website that often. If you haven't found the answer to your question yet... For this case, I have 1 rear fan, 2 top fans, and 2 fans on the front radiator plus 2 fans on the back of the radiator. Even with the radiator blowing onto the GPU, it never exceeds more than 70-72C while gaming at near full load. The GPU itself is amazing and handles heat extremely well. If your case has a good enough airflow, especially having fans on the top and rear to get the hot air out, it shouldn't be a problem.

My radiator fans are always at 20% speed. My case fans are 40% speed at around 700 RPM. Pump is at 1800 RPM. GPU fans doesn't even turn on until I start playing games but rarely goes up more than 40% fan speed.

is the liquid cooling maintenance free or do you have to keep putting in the liquid nitrogen or whatever it is

  • 31 months ago

should remain maintenance free for the length of its life, save for blowing out the rad and fans

Gorgeous rig! What a transformation!

I recently updated my GPU from a GTX 660 to a GTX 1060 6gb in my Core i5 3570K build I did in Feb of 2013. My goal is to move the guts to a new P400S case from a Cooler Master HAF912. Plus add a AIO to finally OC my CPU (I was too afraid to in 2013) and update my PSU from a Corsair RX650 to a EVGA SuperNOVA. Great minds think alike. Your's is truly a beautiful build! Grats!

I love how you mixed the red hardware with the stock black case. Where did you get all of those extra red parts? I'd love to do something similar.

Would you recommend that case? Your cable management is fantastic so I'm wondering if the case makes it easy to manage all the wires.
