Build this beauty last week. Mostly for gaming and photo editing. What do yall think?
Needs more rgb
haha for real
Looks very dope. Well done buddy! Components are also well chosen, good job.
Thank you sir!
Thank you, put a good amount of time into this build.
looks cool! you know though if you went with the samsung 960 SSD M.2 for just an additional 20 dollars you would practically triple your read/write speed. Noticeable difference if you boot on that drive.
By the way, if I build with the AMD Ryzen 7 3900X would I need a better CPU cooler then the Corsair H60 (2018) 57.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler?
Yea probably should have got the M.2 but they had a deal on the 860 at Microcenter that why I went with it. If you are doing a small factor build and running the chip at stock i believe you can expect temps at 80c under load. If you are building a regular size build I would recommend a 280mm cooler but you could probably get decent temps with at 240mm cooler as well.
Well I definitely understand getting it for a good deal!
Thanks for the advice!
I took a look at coolers and it seems like people thought that
Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB 66.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
was a good price oriented CPU cooler for 240mm.
My budget is already strained as it is though lol so I don't know if I could get a 280 mm.
I cannot even imagine what it would cost me if I am not planning on building this thing myself. Am glad for sites like this.
Yes cooler master is definitely the way to go. They got great price/performance.
Okay cool! One more question: will it fit in a thermaltake X71 ATX full tower case?
Yes I believe so
this is a great build! if u selling, how much is it for?
Not for sale unless you give me a price i cant refuse lol.
Very true one of the nicest case I have ever worked with.
Nice build! Really like the case.
DAMN! well-executed build! Did you overclock the 3700x?
Thanks Man! Just running PBO on it works better than manual overclocking all cores for me.
Very nice build man... what monitor do u have?
27 inch Predator 165HZ
Idk if you’ll respond to this but what’s your intake and exhaust fans? Intake from the h100i and exhaust from the 3 fans on the right? I am planning to do a very similar build like yours and juts was wondering what your fan configuration was.
The three fans on the right are intake and the h100 is exhaust. I believe this is the most efficient way of cooling for this case. Maybe adding additonal fans at the bottom would be good as well but since my temps are pretty good (60GPU and 55CPU) I dont think spending the extra money is worth it.
yeah im not sure on how much intake and exhaust works. Especially for this case because of all the possibilities. Like how much intake and exhaust should you have? If you wanna flex, get the 3 fans on the bottom, get a h150i and replace those with ll120 and you got yourself a personal lightshow!
Gamer nexus had a video were he tested this case for the best airflow configuration if you are interested
I took a look at the lian li review and all the fan configurations. Do you think if you added 3 fans on the bottom as intake would improve the temperature a lot?
It might improve temperature a bit but it would depends on the graphics card orientation and whether you are using an aio or air cooler. I think for my specific setup adding three fans on the bottom would improve cooling a couple of degrees but temps are already good (63 gpu and 55 cpu under-load).
Nice build, looking at something similar right now. How are you managing the RGB? RGB fusion for the gigabyte and iCue for the corsair synched, I assume? What about the case? Have you managed a way to synch that or is it a manual changeover?
How is the Cable mod Vertical Bracket to work with/Temps?
Works great gpu never above 70 with silent fan curve.
Are the leds on the cosair cooler addressable/able to sync with synapse as well?
what riser did you use for the GPU? Link if possible please :D
Hi, how can I mount the video card so that you can see the rgb effects?
Hi, nice build. Got this GPU arriving into a phanteks enthoo pro case and I feel like its a waste not to display its effects on a vertical mount. I have done some reading and it seems like the very same mount that you have used is the best as it gives enough space for the fans to work with good airflow. Whats your distance between card and glass? Have you measured temperatures mounting in horizontal/vertical? Also can you do a few pictures how card is sitting in regards to MB and case? Many thanks.
