Description

 After spending 4 years gaming on a laptop (pictured for comparison next to my new monitor) I decided instead of paying off some of that credit card debt, I should finally just build the pc I've dreamed about since I was a kid. Honestly I'm glad I was young and stupid and didn't know jack **** about pc building when I bought this "gaming" laptop, because the technological and aesthetic advancements in those few years have been incredible. So, after about a month of research and 10 hours of nerve-wracking assembly/ troubleshooting, I present my first build.

Excuse the poor quality iPhone pics, after this I really don't have the money for a nice camera!

Only critique I can make is move that GPU rad to the front for better cooling. The rad at the back will suck in hot air and make for higher temps. in the front as an intake will cool better, but nice freaking build my man!

Dont worry its intake and the air back there is just as cool as the front intake ;) GPU runs at a cool 60c max. And thanks man!

Here we see the ludicrous spender in their natural habitat. As the alpha enemy dept piles up, they see it as a threat so the only thing they have is their credit score whitch plumits as they use it as a frugal sheild to which inevitably fails. And thus, the cycle begins again.

If you learned anything, don't stay up until 3:19 PM to write pcpp posts.

+1 For false advertising not over $9000

I believe it's over 9000 is referring to power level from Dragon Ball Z

Where is tangible video evidence that this computer screams for 6 episodes straight. I would pay more to see that than Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor.

Also, if you're going to be salty because someone spent more on their system than you, maybe don't browse a pc enthusiast website.

It's just a joke man, just a joke.

On top of that I already have a new system saved up so guess what, you may do the same thing to me. This is a friendly community and all I tried to do was make a laugh, so I apologize.

All good brother! Definitely misunderstood on my end. Looking forward to seeing your build completed!

More people need to be understanding like you, an amicable world where people resolve problems instead of fighting like a holes.

More power to you and enjoy the time with your rig!

I love it when the exhaust fan is backwards, so it intakes air +1 fix that

If this were solely an air cooled case I would agree with you. But when using liquid cooled radiators its best to pull in cool outside air as opposed to using hot internal air, especially when attempting to cool a 1080ti, the hottest component in the case. There are 3 intake fans and 3 exhaust fans. Cool air comes in from front and back and is immediately exhausted out the top.

Are your radiator fans static pressure or airflow? I’m just curious cause I’m not sure if airflow in a radiator will impact temps that much, NZXT fans come in static pressure but it wouldn’t go with my build scheme so I’m really tied. Thanks

Mine are static pressure. Chose them because this Phanteks Evolv notorious for slim airflow slits in front and on top.

Sorry for the late reply! Everything fit perfectly fine. In fact, thats one of the reasons I chose the H100iv2 over the Kraken. Obviously I wanted the pure aesthetic beauty but I knew it had issues.
