Out of curiosity but what is your ambient temps so allows to keep so low temp in the CPU and GPU...
Nice build good choices on parts for prices (and because today everything is F*** expensive)
Im just curious about why put the Card at the bottom PCI . Just wondering
Thanks for your response and I was surprise to to know that using liquid metal TIM on a aluminum will cause damage like that. That is well to know thanks.
Yeah the Idea for the loop is there, but the money is not. Still probably will wait to see how Volta after pascal do, see prices and else see what gives me more benefits on the long run. Tho I wish I could do a loop now even with soft tubing for a first time loop.
But money wise I see how things go. Thanks for the information and other things I didn't know about.
Thanks a lot for the information and links. I knew yours was custom loop, and I had the guess that those were sensor used on loop. I plan to to a custom loop in the future.
Also, I was hoping a display that, let say it will plug to the USB header and take the motherboard data to display the temps that are register on the system something along the line. That is sort of what I was looking for but couldn't find anything like that.
(right now is not worth doing a custom on a 1070, 1080 ti and above is more worth it tho EK aluminum kits sound nice but the compatibility of the fittings sad aluminum and copper dont work I'll be needing to check more before I even think on using them)
Still thanks for taking your time and get the links for this.
Nice Build... I really wonder where you got the Small screen for the temps reading and if you could send me the link I will appreciated
I really don't get your question? What does it come with? (what is "it"?)
I have the EVGA G3 750W and for the fan to draw air it has to be like that.
yeah that probably will work. but I guess it will only have screws on the sides to hold and you can use the hardrive cage to keep it on place.
If I think it about it if you put the fans as a push you may have a chance to put a 140 at the bottom (but only with 2 screws for sure or none) In my case since rad take more than 240mm high and I have 2 top exhaust fans there is no space for this to do.
If you plan to use 3x 140 they dont fit, or 2x120 and 1x140 I think? wouldn't fit. I actually have the lower stock fan hold up with only 2 screws at the bottom so I can have the 360 intake.
(since the 2x120 of the rad are for the CPU. I wanted a fresh air intake so go to the GPU so no all is warm under load also some air for the HDD)
I havent try with a 140 but there is a little more space is you let the fan hit the bottom of the case. so maybe the top of the fan can be screw and still able to use the 240 rad.
Another option would be to to just push the Hardrive cage a bit put the fan inside and the push push the cage to hold the fan if it fits the way you want it.
yeah it has. here on Other Slots
"1 x M.2 Socket (Key E), supports type 2230 WiFi/BT module"
oh yeah about that I completely forgot to change that card on the part list.
The motherboard has a m.2 expansion on the near the IO, under the IO cover were I can put a m.2 wifi card
Right know I have taken out and using Ethernet so I cannot show you in a picture how it would look like.
sadly optane will only work with 7 gen chips and latest motherboards. (I have a z270 but a 6700k so F***)
This is beautiful. You most get a night stand or something to keep it up and show all its glory.
The back cable management is amazing
Indeed is a big jump. From value and perspective AIO do a great job. As you were saying Custom water cooling is for aesthetics and Higher OC.
But, still they look really nice if you plan and everything. Overall your PC looks amazing.
Gotta love the orange, blue and black theme. Also the clear liquid make the other colors to pop more. The golden fitting look really nice. I don't know why the CPU block reminds me about something of God OF War, and looks unique. (Never seen that block either)
I don't know if you plan to water cool the GPU, but if you don't it still looks amazing.
(the EVGA design is really cool and really like it. I have weird feelings with the 1080ti design but still. )
PD. I even feel like using the first picture as a lock screen or home screen. it looks so cool. (if you don't mind)
Different from you. Finally got to use an AIO, but I would like to make a full loop cooler. (But if I have the money for that I may just buy the 1080ti) It is really compflicting for me to think, use the money for the Ti or water cool what I have.
Ok, yeah CAM is nice I used it when I am monitoring some stuff. I also didn't know it had an overclocking feature for the GPU so you can use it to OC it.
I only keep the MSI open to keep the fan profile and the GPU OC profile if I need it. (most of time is on stock)
I also was thinking on the mirrored silver solid one to combine it with the 1070 and the chess pieces I have in my case. But for now I'll see what I do.
For your GPU fan custom fan profile you can use MSI Afterburner and just play around with % speed to see where you want it when GPU is a full load base on noise and temps.
(with my I have it as when it reach 45C it goes directly to 25%, and raise to when 70C=65%) so there is reasonable noise but temps are always below 70C on my case)
And yeah, with the backplate is hard to pic one I like the design but also they are pricey so don't know if to go for a solid color plate or one with a design, and which color would be better (Need to think if white/silver/black (combination of two of those or just the solid one color, if solid it would be between white and silver)
I see your get at 70C (by description) doesn't seem that bad. Well in my case I don't know how the others will do since this is the 2nd GPU I own. (my old 960 use to get to 81C, and my 1070 gets to 68C) Im using a custom fan profile so by doing that you can improve it . Still the EVGA 1070 is a nice looking card regarless, you only need now a backplate to cover the top. You can look at V1tech they have nice looking backplates tho a bit pricey (plate one color $25, and with design can be up to $40)
This is beautiful, really nice black and white set up, my only question is why didn't you go for the silver version of the 1070. tho it may be because the black one was cheaper or that was the one you wanted from start.
Don't mind it, is just me with this feeling to stick my 1070 there.
I agree silver goes well with a black and white theme. I have the EVGA 1070 and silver chess pieces and they look well with the white X of the board, cables and cooler. So go for it mate
I believe it is from V1tech they sell backplates for around $20+
I have a weird boner for the cables, tho I also fell that the PCI for the CPU cables should had go using the hole near the SSD. But if thee is happy with it, it is OK.
I wast about to killeth thee by the cable mess but then i readeth the description. I shall
returneth to seeth the endeth result, thou art see you again.
Nice. I would only wish there was a 360 model on white. only the Red 360 EX is out. And black 360 only comes with Deepcool White case. Besides that is a Good AIO for the money.
I have the bigger version of your case, and a EVGA 1070. I always wonder how a Asus card would fit on that case, I using a AIO intake. I like the design of the ASUS card but now that I see it it wouldn't fit unless I put the rad on the top.
Thanks, and for the help too.
Thanks. Yeah this CPU cooler is really nice. Keeps my 6700k at around 70~75C with a 4.6OC. Thou there is a lot of good reviews about this cooler, there are some that are bad, so after getting it I did and outside like test (first AIO) just to make sure. Others AIO may be better but this for about 80 dollars is pretty good.
Yes it comes with 2 brackets one for the XT140 fan (slim) and the other bracket is for XF140 fan (the thick one) so if you want to add another it would have to be XF140 for the universal or XT140 for the ultimate since extra brackets are not mean for the same fan that comes with but the other one.
(I can confirm it since my friend has the ultimate H5 that bought that comes with slim and thick fan brackets. From that he gave me the slim fan bracket for my dual slim fans (the bracket It came with and the bracket I had), I gave him the brackets for the thick fan if he ever use it)
Regarding with just adding a second fan to the H7 I don't much about that, some pages say that adding a second fan improve as much as 1C as other says up to 3~5C at the most, but not sure about that.
Yeah I got the same problem when choosing a cooler
OK no problem, Before you buy it or else. Take on count that the H5 either ultimate or universal only comes with brackets for the slim and thick fan, but no for 2 slims or 2 thick.
The reason I had the second slim is because a friend had the ultimate and he didn't use the slim brackets so he gave them to me.
So you'll need to get somehow another bracket if you plan to use push pull for 2 slim fans or 2 thick ones.
but if you don't like it and decide to go for the Captain 120 EX, you can try the H5 and later return it if got it on amazon 30 day return warranty, only pay like $3~5$ (that's what I did because the fans were clicking, tho didn't like them charging for it but well)
for the single 120 rad I'm not sure how would it keep temps. something for sure is that the non K CPU will remain below 60 with either the Captain 120 or the H5.
I had the H5 before OC temps below 60 with a custom fan curve. if CPU got to 60C fans would be on 50% still pretty nice. Noise on the H5 wasn't bad pretty reasonable (returned cause my fans were making clicking noises, you may have more luck)
With my CPU OC temps are about between 5~10C difference between the H5 push pull and the Captain 240EX. So temps my be between 2~6C with the 120 rad assuming here. Also push pull can be an option with Captain, but that cannot tested because the 140s I have on top, plus dont have enough space with the GPU.
It also depend on your case, if it small with tight space, airflow stuff like that. (you are familiar with that by your builds, Nice Build BTW)
This is my first AIO so probable temps base on reviews are different that the ones I have (most of them keep fans at 100% underload, I have my in costume profile so Things are different) AT this point I'm not much of a help. But. if this help you well glad it did.
I actually have a notes so I was able to compare with the Deepcool before switching.
BTW the 6700k was OC at 4.6Ghz with 1.330Vcore (switch to Offset mode to keep voltage low when idling +90 offset)

GladOS you like it. Let me know when you post the custome case with Portal themed. I really will like to see it.
I apologize if I can help you, but I did it right at the beginning so I don't know how the temps would have been with one fan. (I dont have the Cooler anymore so I can't help you any further)
I feel It could be called "Portal PC"
This is beautiful. This is a nice looking PC.
It would had more if I could push pull on rad but GPU didn't leave much more space for that, as well of top fans that barely touch the tubes. (gladly is not giving them pressure)
(If I took the hard drives cage out I could had another 120mm fan to pull air from bottom to.) :)
Thanks, the idea was to push the hot air of the GPU to the top faster to be exhaust, as well of the Rad heat.
You were Right my Friend. The Captain 240EX it is great temps got up to ~10C lower than air so my OC was around ~70C instead that ~82 on air. Thanks for help, I also did outside leak test and it was fine.
I post it again if you want to see.
Nice and clean build. I approve that case and PSU.
Actually, there is the red light. Look closely at the first picture. The light got cover by the fans but is still there. (I still dont know how to get rid of it)
Hi I want to know how is the monitor. I recently order my for 230 +20 tax. So Im moving from a 24 inch 1080 to this Sort of 2K one. Have you Try OC it to 75hrz or more. also color accuracy how it was for you?
Please, I ask you fix your cable management. That is a reason for going for a window panel so you can see the cleanliness of your PC. Good build but just fix the cables, I almost die on it.
Im using the same set of velcro. I still have over 70 left
The picture presentation is great build, but fix that cable management, or a least tight them.
Like the build. cable management seems fine. I have the bigger expose brother of your Case and I love it. Overall great build
