Description

Do you need it? Nope. Are there far more aesthetically pleasing solutions? Definitely. Are you still going to put a giant air cooler in an ITX case just because its technically possible?.................Yep...

Great build! I also want to go big air in a mini itx form factor. Was thinking about the Cryorig R1 to keep the color scheme

I mean technically my build would have looked nicer with the Be Quiet dark rock pro 3, im just a bit of a noctua fanboy, and i feel like the ugly just adds character :p

This build is probably the only reason I'm considering this case with this cpu cooler. I'm worrying about the airflow in this case though. How's your gpu temperature?

really good actually. Actually lower temps during load than my 780 directcu2 in my full sized nzxt phantom.

thinking of making pretty much the same build. how's the noise and temps? any clearance issues?

I love this build, the cooler being larger then the mobo is just... lol! I am looking to use this case and still debating on what cooler to go for as I want to get a 6700k to 4.5ghz without it running too hot under load.

I like the cleanliness an all in one cpu water cooler provides but at the same time I really like the simplicity of a traditional fan and heatsink. Another thing though is that a lot of the water cooler systems are somewhat louder than a regular fan and heatsink and high end coolers like the ndh15 you used actually perform just as well if not better...as far as peak Temps under load are concerned.

Obviously a water cooler will be able to drop the Temps back down to regular idle temperature faster then a traditional fan would be able to but this along with the cleanliness are the only two pros I can really see with an all in one water cooler. At least for me!

Anyways, I'm looking right now at the cryorig h7, but am also curious about the noctua you used, since it performs better. The only downside is its over twice the price and some might say it is less aesthetically pleasing lol... did you have any clearance issues with the case, motherboard or your ram when using the ndh15? Thanks for your time.

no clearance issues at all with the components I used, i did move the fans up a bit, but I still have about an inch between the top of the fans and the side window on the case.

Is it possible to fit 2x 120/140mm exhaust fans on top of the Noctua NH-D15?

Why did you ruin that build with that freak Noctua.

That was....interesting, i ended up basically just saving the heatsink for very last, I cant even plug in a sata cable without taking off the rear fan. Also, the HUE+ came in about 3 days after everything else, and i had to take out the cooler and GPU just to plug in and route a usb2 cable.

Oh there are no optical illusions or anything happening here, with the fans on, it is legitimately bigger than the mobo.
