Description

My first pc since in so many years...my last pc was had and Athlon 64 cpu...that's how old that was and I think that was done early 2000s

This is the 1st Raijintek Ophion build in the Philippines. I had to source the case via Buyee as they were the only ones who were able to purchase it from yahoo japan for me.

Most of the parts are brand new with the exception of the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 card.

Had changed case fans twice as the older fans when I first built the case were not doing a good job, they were Tecware Orbis Specturm fans. I changed them to Id-Cooling PL12025 and added a Silverstone FN123 following the Raijintek recommended fan setup. The Id-Cooling fans are a bit noisy but get the job done...I might swap it out for some Corsair AF120s or ML120 Pros in the future.

The only pain I had with this build was the stock cables that came with the Corsair SF600 were really stiff and were hare to bend / tuck in the small case.

How was that case to build in? I have the sister case, the Raijintek Metis Plus, and i love mine. Im curious to see what others think of their Raijinteks.

fairly easy other...I've been out of practice since my last build which was roughly early 2000s hahaha. I had the hardest time positioning the PSU cables as I mentioned the ones that came with the Corsair SF600 were so stiff...might change them to custom length ones in the future from Cablemod

Actually got my 1080ti from a rendering farm so it was fairly cheap...I'd wait and see what the Red team has in store in 2019...rumors have it that they have a GPU with the performance of 2080 at just 250$...I hope they deliver! Much more practical given the Freesync monitors are so cheap compared to Gsync monitors

I was actually doing a video during the build...sadly my DSLR was overheating so that was scrapped.

It runs good...just temps are now at 72c max during heavy sessions. I elevated the pc a bit to ensure more air from the bottom intake gets pushed into the case...definitely following the fan configuration on the Raijintek page helps.

Nice build, love the size! Only thing I would worry about though from looking around pic 36/37 is how close the intake of the CPU cooler appears to be in relation to the glass side panel. I know it is hard to gauge how much of a gap there is just from those pics but I thought I would mention it. I would worry about diminished cooling capability if there was less than 3/4"of a gap for the fan to pull air into the heat sink with that type of cooler.

CPU temps stay around 56c...I also placed extended footers on the case to ensure the bottom intake gets more air in. GPU stays at 72c on heavy AAA games. I didn't OC the CPU yet as I'm planning to change the cooler to a Cryorig C7...unfortunately all the stores during the time of building were sold out but definitely planning on changing to a better low profile CPU cooler in the future

I just upvoted before even looking at anything because of how many photos you posted!

That is a nice build and a great upgrade from Athlon 64. What monitor are you gonna be using with that 1080ti?

I just got myself a ROG SWIFT PG248 so it's 1080p gaming for now...it's so expensive to get a 1440p Gsync monitor where I live.

It runs good...just temps are now at 72c max during heavy sessions. I elevated the pc a bit to ensure more air from the bottom intake gets pushed into the case. Might upgrade to a 1 or 2 TB Samsung 860 EVO once I find a good price...maybe during the Christmas holidays

How's the motherboard. I'm considering it but the vrm looks incredibly weak. Asrock is a good motherboard company though.

no problems so far...actually looking at the reviews online the vrm on this thing is better than gigabyte and msi...gigabyte has lots of reviews of humming due to bad vrm cooling. msi has so so reviews too...this is an better value than the asus strix mobos for sure and is a good all rounder

It seems to be fixed after a new bios with better voltage control.

nice build! " stock cables that came with the Corsair SF600" you're right they're really ****. The bottom fan must be slim or even a normal one fit?

  • 8 months ago

has to be a slim one...120 x 15 mm

This may be an odd question, but how much space is there between the top panel on the case and the motherboard mounting rail? From your pictures, it looks like there is another 15-20 of extra space between your top fans and the center rail... maybe?

https://www.raijintek.com/images/v-ophion-03.jpg you mean where the 2top fans are? yes I believe thers around 13-15mm clearance from the fans before they touch the motherboard mounting rail

Yes, thanks! I am wondering if it'd be possible to fit a slim 15mm fan and 25mm thick rad up there. I know they make one specifically designed four such seetups, but that one looks far too tall. If you ever take it apart again and you have a free moment, id love to know the total clearance in that gap!

Anyways, awesome setup! Its nice to see these smaller dan-style cases are being made without the $250 price tags.

ill let you know later once I get home...will check clearances with tape measure...will post once I get the real clearance

Thanks! Just bought one, so apparently your build is a great showcase for this platform!

sorry for posting a late reply i checked clearance and it's only 10-11mm (10mm if I start measuring the screw mount of the fan which is elevated a bit) hope this helps

Hi, I'm new here. Just wanted to ask how thick your graphics card is and how much space is left between your card and the metal housing near to the metal cover? Do you think that there is a chance to fit a 2.5 slot graphics card?

not so sure...it's pretty near the tempered glass. i think you need to do some trimming on the back of the case
