Absolutely one of my favorites. +1 from me good sir, well deserved
Wow. Just, wow.
I love the all-white hardware +1
i'm really diggin the purple, you got my +1
+1 for the cat
that case makes the motherboard look small
If you decide to mount the radiator on the front, I'd say to go ahead and throw an extra 120mm fan on there as well. That'll help balance out the air pressure within the case and probably will give you slightly positive pressure. Also, if the rad is on the front, it's able to bring cooler air across the fins which may keep your CPU a few degrees cooler than mounting it on the top but overall isn't going to make a huge difference. If you put the radiator on the top, I'd still suggest mounting another fan up front. It really just comes down to personal preference and how it would look when the build is finished.
The two fans that come with the case are 140mm and the rad with the AIO you plan to get is 240mm. I'm not super familiar with Phanteks cases, but there could possibly be a clearance issue if you try to throw the 140mm fan up front with the rad. I'm not exactly 100% percent; I'm just speculating a potential problem that may happen. Taking a look at the case specs now, I'm fairly confident that it won't fit with the 240mm radiator because you'll only have 120mm of clearance left on the front panel.
did you have to update the BIOS for the board to be compatible with the i3-7100?
$400 for a 1060 is a joke, might as well have gotten a 1070 for that price
nice build, love the TL;DR
That, my good sir, is a beautiful build +1 from me
I think that wall needs more motherboards on it
The build looks super nice! I understand how you feel about being sold on the case. The first time I saw the white one, I knew that it was the one. This makes me want to put a decal on my case now.
Not sure if I've ever seen a cpu cooler face that direction, but hey, that's what makes it unique!
Nice build man! Maybe think about putting an exhaust fan in the case?
haven't checked my settings recently but thats probably higher than mine
My 1060 gets better than 30 fps in Arma 3 multiplayer
+1 for cat
Very detailed description. I like it.
Dang son, that's fancy! It's finger-lickin' gold!
Um, the kraken x31 doesn't come with a LED on the cooler.
I think I'm in love...
Might be a power supply issue
Do you have those fans connected to Hue+?
I love everything about this build! The color scheme is excellent and all of the components seem to tie into each other. For the parts that you have in this rig, you get a lot of computer for around $1000. Props to you good sir and excellent build!
Dat gpu sag tho
I absolutely love this build! The way the colors blend and tie into each other is amazing. The pictures with all of the LEDs on makes me weak at the knees. Makes me wish I would of gone with that cooler for my build. IMO, one of the best builds I've seen!
I love this build! The color scheme and the modding on the case is phenomenal! Also the peripherals really help tie the build together.
