Thanks! I mounted the radiator up top, so the added width would not allow the fan holes to line up with the case
I run my 8600k at 4.8ghz with 1.27 or 1.28 voltage and sit around 45c idle and 70c under load. Even with just a 120mm radiator it runs slightly cooler than my GPU with the best cooling offered from MSI. I do wish I had went larger though
There is actually two cats lol
Thank you, still have some fans to add in the future when my buddy decides to do so. Should clean up the top open area a little, in my opinion
but wait, there is two cats
Don't know about the Thermaltake, but the Lian Li was easy to build in and looks great
No these are not the original radiator fans. The original fans are optimized for air pressure to where as these LL120s are for air flow, however they still get the job done. Especially being that the radiator is a 360mm, and yes the LL120s come with a control box and are software controlled. Cooling is fine, even without additional case fans at the moment.
Thanks. Yes it's a nice case, no major complaints really
Thank you! Definetly go second gen Ryzen, if I remember correctly from what little bit of research I did thermals were improved. We went with the 2600x vs 2700x because of price, both viable options.
Yes, the white interior definitely shows off color. The only thing I found kinda weird was the slight tint on the glass panels, it's not bad though. Correct on the fans and radiator being inside, I did not try to mount the radiator on the back side. Although it looks nice with the Corsair logo on the side of the rad. All in all the case was nice to build in, and definetly looks very nice. I really like how the PSU is on the back rather than the bottom.
Agreed, overkill but a necessity of the case! The upside to a 360mm is low fan speeds and fantastic cooling. I do plan to atleast add 3 exhaust fans up top, not sure which fans. As far as the 2060 goes, it's not my pc and I havnt played much on it yet. He plays on a 34" ultra wide 1440p 100hz, so we should be over the 100hz mark. I'll be tinkering over the next few days, possibly exploring a slight overclock on the GPU. We shall see!
Thank you! Yes, definitely an attractive case.
Also an option! It has surprisingly well temps even with minimal fans at the moment. CPU sits in the 50s and GPU in the 60s under load.
At the moment it is exhausting through the AIO and nothing more. The design of the case is to intake through the bottom and exhaust through the top.
All of them, it shows all of the fps.
The idea is to intake through bottom, exhaust through top. There's close to an inch of clearance under the case and magnetic dust filters all around.
Yes we still have the AIO fans, don't know if we will use them or swap for AF fans. The design of the case is to intake from the bottom and exhaust through the top, has magnetic dust filters everywhere.
Can I curse on PCPP? Cause this is fkn beautiful.
Thank ya thank ya, I found them from a Bitwit video and gave them a shot for the price. They are fantastic in my opinion!
nice build, even better photos
best title lmao
Thanks! I like it, no complaints on any of the parts really
If I were liquid cooling and trying to push hardware to the limits I would consider a high end board, but for my use it gets the job done
I have had no problems with the board, does everything I need it to. I run it with the OC Genie vs a manual because of temps/noise, but I have manual overclocked and it works. Its a very basic looking board, but at the end of the day its half the cost and does the same thing lol
How can you really upgrade from this... I say custom loop it
This is sick! Only suggestion would have been to paint after drilling holes for the tubing, or wait until you clean the loop and throw some grommets in the holes
When I have a "few extra dollars" I may treat myself to Chipotle, not a fkn spaceship
I just right click on my desktop and I have a graphic setting (nvidia control panel) where I can select resolution and refresh rate. For some reason mine will occasionally reset itself to 60hz, maybe you have the same issue
Why not just return the RAM and purchase 2x8? Then go RGB to match the other components. As far as cables go, unless youre ordering custom, check out asiahorse! They are available on amazon for $30, I found them through a bitwit video and they are very nice for the price.
Thank you, it is as clean as I can possibly make it! I hope to attempt a custom loop in the coming months, that will be the true test!
worth it, well, "worth it"
First I would check the in game settings for a frame cap, then confirm the monitors input is 144 hz. Otherwise if its set to 60 hz, with vsync enabled, your fps will always show 60
His primary monitor is the 24" 240hz, though
I think a custom loop is next on my list, I cant seem to stay away from the EKWB website. I definitely want to try a hard tube build, looks like a fun way to get creative.
Bueno. That case is so nice with a custom loop
If anything, rename it "Yeah, uhuh, you know what it is"
I dig it. There is a million black/red builds, not too many black/yellow
we accept your challenge, let us know when finished
Problem? No problems here
I think the financial struggle part speaks for itself, but what were we in a hurry for lol
They are 6+2 cables, check out this link of my PSU, you can see in the cable photo what I mean. The extensions are nice because you can tuck the +2 from the 6 pin in the shroud, otherwise the +2 would just hang. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=220-G3-0750-X1
did that cheap gpu support actually help? looks like it, ive been looking at them but reviews go either way
I'll take good care of Ace. RIP
at least its not dedicated to a Titan
photo quality low AF, but ill allow it
I use the same cooler on an i5-8600k, motherboards default turbo of 4.3 and run under load around 65c
