Description

  • Was difficult to build due to limited space
  • Still have lots of shuffling of cables inside to make it "cleaner"
  • Used discontinued 120mm (front case fan) Ultra Kaze Fans (VERY loud) but boy do they keep my temps down (getting Fanmate 2 fan controller soon :P) Also replaced thermalright cpu-fan with a scythe fan as well.
  • to my delight it is extremely portable, I love this case. I little heavy but this thing is a monster -more updates to come...

Updated Temps?

KetchyKech submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

i'll post em for you but its pretty much 25-30s while idle and ramps up to 45-50 when gaming, sometimes even lower :)

That's a nice looking air cooled heatsink.

been taking your computer to Lan-parties?

Wished I got an smaller case (; ;) But super nice. +1

KetchyKech submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

haha, i haven't yet, but having this much power in such a sturdy little case has its perks when traveling!

Vainslay 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

One time, I took my full tower case to my friend's house to download my drivers, League of legends, ect (and mess around and brag about my computer) but, it's hell, no handholds whatsoever. (spent as much as you did for such a nice case though :)

Hope you get many opportunity to carry this beast!

Are you really going to stick with that fan for your CPU cooler? You could get lower temps if you switched to higher performance fans.

KetchyKech submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

if you can recommend me a fan that would fit, i'd love you :P

I chose a 120mm Noctua fan. I checked some websites and it says your heatsink support any 120mm fan, or 140mm Thermalright TY 140 fans. There is a small chance that your heatsink could fit a 140mm Noctua fan, but I wouldn't take the risk.

That is such a cool little machine, I love it. Wish you would have posted a photograph of all of the components on the motherboard, but I can live without that.

Nice build

+1 for the case

pegotico 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

there is a ROG version fan for that heatsink which should look really cool http://www.thermalright.com/html/products/cpu_cooler/axp-100r.html

the noctua nf-f12 would be a great fan but.. wont work as 44+25=69 and your max cpu height is 60

I'd love to see the inside of this case all laid out.
