Description

This is my first build in a while. Im still waiting on funds for a graphics card, but the Intel HD 4600 plays most of my games at decent levels. I figure waiting for Radeon 9xxx will be my deciding factor. Getting Ready 4 Battle!

Edit: I ended up throwing a HIS 7870 IceQ for now until the new AMD gpu's come out. OC'ed to 1200Mhz clock, 1420Mhz memory clock at 70c full load with Kombustor.

Serious question here; how did you get all those parts for $0?

Great build, fan on the outside at the back Annoys the hell out of me but its super crisp so you get the +++1 from me

Curious. How much room is there between the cooler and the side panel with this mobo

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 12 months ago

I don't really remember. I didn't have any problems with cable management

I also built a lan build in this case. Its absolutely amazing. +1

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Thanks! Flipping the front panel helped with the big cooler too.

so did you have to do any casemods to make this work? or does the case just have the option to do this stock?

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Yeah, i had to drill out the rivets in the front panel and for the psu housing/mobo riser. I took the psu cage out to cut holes for dvd drive cables.

I would like to know how you fit that massive heatsink into that case. Im guessing it was a tight fit.

Interior pics would be nice!

Mr_Pixle 1 point 20 months ago

Its not hard to fit that cooler in that case. I had a NH-D14 in a Node 304 before

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Now thats impressive!

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

I had to install the cooler in the board before i installed the board. The rear fan (spectre pro 140) wouldnt fit either so i mounted it outside. Taking off the front fan helps with the board/cooler install also.

Good job! After you get your GPU, it's gonna be one tight motherjitter!

This is damn cool. I love those Phantek coolers. Very nice mod work too!

How is the PH-TC14PE? do you like it? recommend it or maybe i can get the single fan version PH-TC12DX?

UncalledForGabe submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

its alright. i would recommend the noctua instead. its much quieter and with pwm fans
