Description

The owner uses mostly for Warcraft, it's themed on her main toon. This case sucked because we tore the corsair fan system out due to wattage and wasn't compatible with Aura Sync. There wasn't a lot of room to work in I guess because it came with cooling in it already. Still needs cable combs and I'm fighting the Trident Z rgb but the dimms are black and white so they look nice even off. (only pic I had was with a Ripjaws V kit). I warned her she was going to need shades and spf 1000 with all that rgb, she thought I was kidding, it's bright!

What is that in the end of the PSU shroud? Is that just the 3.5" drive cage? Or is that a custom end cap thing?

Yeah that's just the Drive cage. (hate how it blocks the fan)

Nice build! How are fps on WoW? Why'd you use 3 different type of fans, and where did you place them?

Technically there are 4 kinds of fans and I'm trying to remember, was more than a few builds ago. So the new Masterfans come in 3 flavors: Air pressure, Air balance and Air flow. The pressure if I remember right is 5 blade and designed to have more pressure but less distance, the Flow is maybe 7 blades move a lot of air with less noise and the Balance is the hybrid of the 2, farther push but also good static pressure and I think it had 9 blades. I think I used 2 Pressure's on the 240 radiator, the Flow on bottom front wanting strong flow but not too noisy on that cage, I think the top front is a Balance, same wanted through-case flow but less noise if possible and if I remember the fans that came with her AIO are real close but not like the other 3 and I want to say rear exhaust and front middle. Not for sure they ended is same order but the owner wanted all balance simply because they were pretty and I was trying to compensate for the reduced intake from the front so we came to compromise. It's always nice to have a few options if you don't know the exact flow of a case and I was wanting positive pressure so it might take in less dust. (and maybe I wanted to play with all of the fans in the lineup : ) Anyway it runs great and looks nice. I think we wound up at 3.9ghz across all cores/threads (I had to back it off so it didn't make my 1800x in same board look bad! JK) and I put white cable combs in which really cleaned it up, I need to get some current pictures to replace these but we may do one more touch, vert gpu so I haven't yet. It does get good fps but she loves the eye candy higher settings and she is freesync'd on a 27" Dell so frames aren't as relevant. I don't see this system too often and it amazes me when I do, leaving me wondering how it came out so nice but she spent some $$ making it happen. Thanks for looking! Kas
