mustang_agf's Completed Build: My Favorite Build Thus Far

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

I completely agree. The card looks 10x better without the bracket

ediZZo's Completed Build: Meshify TURBO 911

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

Easy to apply?! Man I hated applying mine when I delidded my 8600k lol. Maybe it's easier on the IHS?

See my above comment. Not trying to throw shade just giving advice.

LM is great between the DIE and IHS, but yields no advantages on top of the IHS. And its known to dry out much quicker. In some cases 8-10 months.

My biggest concern though was the application. LM does not spread like thermal compound and simply adding a drop and installing the cooler will not suffice. Your CPU will not be cooled properly.

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

Sure it is but that doesn't mean it's meant to be in between an IHS and water block. LM is known to cause issues when paired between the two and yields no advantage what so ever over thermal compounds.

Not to mention it's meant to be spread. in OP's case, there is no way that CPU is being cooled properly by simply adding a dab and installing the block.

Judging by your provided pictures, I would remove the CPU cooler ASAP and remove every bit of the Conductonaut. You need actual thermal paste not liquid metal

Broxx's Completed Build: PC Rebuild For A Friend

Broxx submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It's holding up a great. It was actually from an older build too so it's been going strong for about 3 years now. 0 issues even after OC'ing the 8600k to 4.9

This build is just nutty lol. It looks so good too. Out of curiosity, why didn't you go with faster RAM? Not that 64GB @ 3k is slow but yeah lol

A nice little powerhouse you have here! Nicely done

PedroGeek's Completed Build: Gorgeous, but in a budget.

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

A few words of advice from a fellow Shift owner. - Rotate the bottom rad so the tubing is facing the glass side panel. This will allow you to add another 140mm fan to the front of the case. - If you have clearance from the GPU, add another 120mm fan onto the bottom rad. I found my temps improved greatly with a push/pull. - Lastly, set ALL fans to intake. It isn't always recommended but for this case that is where I saw the lowest temps.

Cheers!

Did you install the RAM first or the cpu cooler? Curious if one needs to go on before the other.

Thank you for the kind words! I appreciate the feedback.

I definitely put in a lot of thought in keeping them clean and organized. I'm glad it's being noticed

Broxx submitter 6 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Thank you! I'm surprised someone noticed haha. My only USB header was occupied by the lighting node pro so I trimmed a couple tabs on one of the PCIe brackets and ran it into a USB 2.0. It was actually kinda hard finding the exact cable I needed but it turned out great!

Tecnoguía's Completed Build: My little Frankenstein ;)

No GPU?

Looks good nonetheless. I would ditch the product stickers on the front panel though

I have such a soft spot for Phanteks cases. Especially the X

KurtKurtson's Completed Build: Evolution of a toaster oven - Full Custom Loop Evolv Shift X

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Ahh I know what it feels like trying to keep components cool in this case. I had the regular Shift and ended up switching cases because there isn't a real solution for them.

One thing you could look into is modifying the aluminum panels. I've seen quite a few clean hexagonal designs that improve airflow and still look classy.

Another option could be the Fractal Design Define Nano S. I believe it supports a 240mm rad up top and a 240mm rad in the front simultaneously. Don't quote me on that though.

Ahh a fellow whiskey connoisseur, love to see it.

Very nice build. What are temps like? I'm surprised they aren't below freezing with all those rads lol

Clean build all around! Nicely done

TheyCallMeKuya's Completed Build: Black Ice: HTPC Build

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

I mounted the hub and the lighting node pro under the back aluminum panel. You have to route some of the cables differently so the panel fits on but it will work.

I ran the lighting node directly into the mobo. I skipped out on using the USB connector for the H80i since I liked the default white led.

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Nice build! I did a Shift build almost identical to this except with a 1080ti.

The AIO tubes are very tough. You can look at my completed builds and see how I had mine configured. I had to press them down into place with the side panel when I put it on. I had it for over a year and didn't have any problems.

legendarypoet's Completed Build: Noc Noc, Who's There?! F@H Build

Very, very classy. I'm really starting to lean towards simplistic builds.

Props for proper photos as well.

Broxx submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

My GPU runs just as hot. I plan to add liquid metal to the 1080ti in the near future and see if that helps. If I know I will be playing BO4 for quite a while I remove my side panel for better airflow.

You could swap the front so it exhausts through both and see if that helps. Never know until ya try

Broxx's Completed Build: My Refreshed Phanteks Shift! (Delidded 8600K, GTX 1080TI)

Broxx submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Correct. I actually have (2) 120mm fans set to intake on the bottom, one on each side of the radiator. I added it after the pictures were taken. Then the (2) LL140's are both set to exhaust out of the front. I have seen some people using the bottom front as an intake and the top front as exhaust. I have not tried it.

Are you delidded? That is where I saw the greatest improvement in temps!

drworsley's Completed Build: Bedroom Build

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

That is one beastly build! You have great taste. KAWS Companion and Klipsch audio lol

How many fans do you have on the Kraken rad? I see the two mounted on the inside, are there two more mounted behind the face plate?

m0nstr0s1ty's Completed Build: First new build in 8 years. Modest beauty.

Broxx 6 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Good looking build!

How come you didn't go with a 240mm AIO and mount it in the front? I ask because I have the same CPU, Cooler, and MB as you and the one thing I wish I could change is the AIO. I am restricted to a 120mm due to my case.

+1 for delidding the 8600k. It did wonders on mine!

Technically 4, there is one on the bottom of the radiator too. The H80i has a Y splitter build in and runs the pump + 2 fans on a single header, the other 2 Corsair fans are connected via Y splitter

Lee_Edge's Completed Build: First Build - 8700k 1080ti H200i

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Absolutely love this!! Such a simplistic and clean design.

I have been planning on switching cases and this is the exact build that I would do. Almost component for component.

Do you think would could fit a 280mm Kraken on the front with your 1080ti? I have the same card and everything else I just wanted to go with the 280mm AIO instead of the 240.

Very clean build! I usually don't like having the CPU cooler logo sideways but I absolutely love the "tucked" look of the AIO hoses. Thumbs up

Broxx submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

A lot of training haha! Seriously though ha.

I tried many different angles for them and this is what worked best. With slight pressure from the side panel is tucks behind the frame perfectly.
