Would be a good idea to get a blower card since it is a small form factor case. Much better airflow to the heat sink getting consistently fresh air from the front
Im so confused
Wow... didn't even paint the SSD white?
STUNNING build my friend. Love white themed ones.
I'd go Lux for the lighting or EVOLV for class
I have the same case in silver. Looks damn good in black too. Nice build!
This looks like a budget build. Be careful with that SSD and GPU, both aren't the most reputable. Make sure you backup and watch the temps on the GPU, possibly replace the thermal compound or get a liquid cooler if they're available for that one.
Yeah I have a Thermaltake Riing 3.0 240mm in there now, just haven't posted pics. Sometime this weekend new pics should be uploaded with all my new components, including the new case which is.....perfect.
The etchings ion the backplate add to it so much.
The motherboard is a dream. Probably best Z97 mobo out. Can't go wrong with 980 Ti SLI. And the reference cards definitely look good. The plastidip came out great, will upload pics now. THe white backplate looks sick.
Awesome! Glad to inspire! Actually buying a new case, Phanteks Evolv ATX, and new LEDs. Also, just finished plastidipping my graphics card backplate white, so check back in a week or two for a big update.
Please keep me updated if you make something similar. I'd love to see it!!
Really nice build! Love the case and color coordination. Only thing i would recommend is to be careful running that card too hot. That specific one tends to have the VRMs get very hot. Still a cool looking and badass card, I'd just recommend monitoring temps and possibly putting new thermal compound on it (I only recommend Arctic MX-4) I'm assuming the WD black is a backup drive? If so, great choice. Good build.
Thanks! I may switch to white LEDs, but then the blue RAM may look a bit out of place. Planning on playing more games in the future when I have more time.
I'm just posting my build to show it off, no need to attack.
The logic is you can notice the upstairs of your house being hotter, but not your car. It's a simple obvious fact. No one else in the thread was rude, and you act like you didn't read the first line of my description stating that I'm a tech myself. I know this stuff. Just asking you research before stubbornly pushing opinions on people.
For your pressure argument, I'd rather have a BARELY warmer system with less dust.
The "hot air rises" argument is insignificant in a system this small with this much airflow. Your link is also from a source I've never heard of with graphs and temperature reading that doesn't even show the differences from switching the fans. And the diagram is just a one of how he set his rig up. I'd gladly accept criticisms, that provide sound justification. Thanks for the advice though, I'll get the facts straight myself :)
How does it make more sense? and lol thanks for the fan installation instructions. needed that.
As I stated, I understand pressures. Why MUST the top and back be exhaust vs the bottom and front?
I got mine as an open box on Newegg, came with everything and was much cheaper than usual
Thanks so much! I'm planning on it.
I have a GTX 970 in it
Pretty much no damage can occur from this...
Whats the justification for that? I understand the whole pressure part of it but why should top be exhaust and front and sides intake? From everything I've read, it doesn't matter much as long as you have more positive pressure in the case. Thanks.
Fan on side panel is intake to push fresh air to the GPU, should switch up some of the fans though. Thanks for the comments!
