After 10 months your build finally came to fruition :’) I see that you went with RX 580 rather than GTX 1060 you previously planned. Solid choice amidst the cryptomining craze that is happening right now.

Smexy AIO cooler right there as I am sure it would be easily the centrepiece of your rig!

I have to ask though, how is the airflow and temp of your system? That case looked like it is frighteningly choking the front airflow.

I am not entirely sure, but it looks like the stock fans included are the closest to PH-F120MP (the stock fans being its non-PWM variant). Can't vouch which one is 'better' per se either: are you looking for performance-wise or noise-wise?

Phanteks fan being a 'stock' fan, I would assume that Cryorig's is better. Having said so, the difference would probably be marginal. If you have one already, I don't see a reason why you would a stock fan instead (other than aesthetics maybe?).

Hope this helps!

Hey man sorry for the late reply life sort of caught up with me.

I don't play BF1 unfortunately but I am sure it is pretty easy to find review online which answers your question (what's the FPS count playing BF1 on ultra with 1070). CPU-wise, it will not affect game performance that much, especially jumping from 7500 to 7600.

Hope it helps!

Is..is.. the SSD not in the bracket because you are trying to get the look of the wallpaper on your monitor?

The eye = CPU cooler, I get that. But the "tentacles" = SSD + SATA cables? ermahgerd.

Too bad that you feel it's distracting to look at :(

I have the exact same case and I can't stop looking at it even after 2 months of having it.

If the RGB lights are too distracting, you could always disable it :p

You picked S340 Elite with a smexy Tempered Glass but you put the case on the bottom with the glass panel facing the wall??? SHAME.

By fan hub you were referring to the button on the front panel that is able to adjust the fanspeed?

If yes, unfortunately it does not have one, which is kind of a bummer. As such, I would suggest getting a very silent case fan if you decide to get P400 (not P400S) as the fan will be spinning in full power all the time.

I've seen other builds with the tubes tucked and it looks a bit tight, don't wanna put any strain and risk having any liquid leaking.

Mm fair point. Tinker with it when you feel like it then :)

My build is doing fine, other than the fact the MOBO had to be replaced as one of its SATA ports suddenly stop working after 2 weeks.

Games mainly revolve around The Witcher 3, Batman series, DotA 2, Mass Effect series, Sleeping Dogs, bunch of MMORPGs. GPU runs warm since I live in a tropical country but it is still crushing anything I am throwing at it at ultra preset.

Hope your build has been great too!

Holy **** my name is mentioned in your build description I'm honored :')

Pretty solid parts choices you have there man. But if I have to be really petty, you might want to try to route your AIO tubes behind the 24-pin power supply cable connected to your motherboard. It will look neater that way!

Nonetheless, +++1 for the case choice.

If you don't mind me asking, which store at SLS did you buy your parts from? And did you assemble it yourself or you asked them to?

HDD and SSD maybe, but RAM prices here in Singapore is definitely more expensive than in the US (not taking into account shipping rates, of course). Even so, it makes sense for me to pay a higher premium considering the convenience of swapping/exchanging parts that are faulty directly to the physical shop, rather than mailing them overseas if I had bought them overseas.

As a fellow Singaporean builder, I feel you man. Price here sucks.

As to why i would get the Kraken X52 while having a locked CPU and a H motherboard is due to a budget constraint.

I guess what you meant to say is, you want to go as aesthetically pleasing as possible and compromise on performance cause of budget? ;)

True, although an aftermarket air cooler is already more than enough following your argument. Had the same CPU for my own rig in Singapore, temperature never go above 65 degrees.

If he would upgrade to an unlocked CPU, he would need to upgrade to a new mobo entirely as well to unlock the potential. This seems to be unlikely anytime in the future (regarding MS OS activation etc etc) as it seems to be too troublesome.

But hey, anything is possible. Maybe he just wants it for aesthetics and he got the money for it so why the hell not right.

Oh man how I envy the cooler weather there.

AMD Ryzen! It might come with a pretty cool stock cooler that has RGB (I know right!) but nothing is really confirmed yet.

Anyways, goodluck for your build! Do submit and post them in PCPP once you are done :D

To be honest, your username shocked me as it is similar to one of a Youtuber that used to have that youtube name.

But yeah to answer your question, case fans are pretty quiet but whether it is enough or not really depends on your build. What processors are you using? What kind of GPU? Are you overclocking? It also depends on the ambient temperature of your living place (tropical countries tend to be more humid and warmer).

Generally, I would still recommend adding additional fans for any decent build considering aesthetics and additional cooling potential for an inexpensive premium. I agree though, that it is not absolutely necessary.

As stated in the build description, the MSI B250M Gaming Pro that I have chosen in my parts list is actually in place of MSI B250 Gaming Pro Carbon (that I actually used in my build) that I could not find in PCP even until this time of writing.

Could you specify which model of MSI GTX 1070 are you referring to?

If I understand you correctly, are you referring to the clearance between the 6/8-pin power cable connected to the GPU and the tempered glass?

Comment reply on claudiuskt's Completed Build: PC MustardFace

Both cases are almost the same, really.

The differences that I can think of:

-The front I/O (S340 Elite has 2 more USB 2.0 and 1 HDMI ports)

-S340 Elite that might be able to mount top radiator as it is taller than P400 (which is infamous for not having enough clearance for top radiator)

-S340 Elite comes with a headphone hook that can be magnetically attached to its front panel

-Price premium of 10$ compared to P400 TG

I personally went for P400 because in my country, Singapore, the price difference is huge. Those differences in feature are not enough to convince me to get S340. Furthermore, I prefer P400's physical shape compared to boxy S340's.

There isn't enough space for 3 fans if I never take away the PSU shroud panel. I realised this when replying to another comment. There is actually enough slots to fit 3 fans in the case technically speaking.

It is changeable to other colors as well. It basically follows the color and mode of case lights (the one underneath the case front panel). AFAIK the modes are either static, breathing, or color cycles (akin to breathing but changing colors).

Ah. The good old 400C carbide series from Corsair. Beware though, the window panel is extremely prone to scratch, which is a shame considering its "sideway-opening" concept that is kinda attractive and neat.

Glad I could make your mind up then! You won't regret it!

Thank you for the kind words man! Honestly it was kinda hard for me choosing between this and S340 Elite. Price premium of S340 affirmed my choice.

Been always in love with side windowed case. When this came out with a tempered glass version, I just couldn't resist.

Let me know on which you decide on in the end!

Indeed. Personally I feel that this case comes tied when compared to NZXT S340 Elite, yet severely under-recognized. Maybe attributed to its unavailability in some countries yet though. But thanks! Appreciate the compliment.

I second this. The two other fans not connected to your CPU cooler serves little purpose since it is an open-case anyway. Putting it into better use would be to cool down your overclocked (assuming you are doing so) CPU more effectively using a bigger AIO cooler.

I checked with a ruler so it may not be very accurate, but the clearance from the mobo surface to the inner surface of tempered glass should be about 167mm. Taking into account the cpu socket + the cpu, leaves us with about 162mm give or take? Pretty tight for a 160mm tall cpu cooler, if you ask me. Personally I would find another cooler, but the choice is yours.

Thought I would help to clear the confusion.

550W is more than enough for 1070 especially since the PSU in this build is rated 80+ GOLD which means efficiency is >90%. Hell, even 450W PSU 80+ Gold is enough to power a standard build with 1070.

Just to be on the safe side though, I'd recommend 550W for a standard build with 1070.

Any reason why you choose 1x 8GB RAM instead of 2x 4GB RAM? If price is a concern, I believe the extra 4-5$ premium is justified.

I believe cpu cooler with height dimension of 160mm should be fine as I remember seeing someone put Cryorig H5 Ultimate cpu cooler (height clearance 160mm according to the site) in P400 case (although not the tempered glass edition, but has the same clearance of 160mm for cpu cooler). Just to make sure, I'll measure it for you once I get back home and let you know again.
