2nd Build I've done, but 1st post

NZXT H200i Flat White Asus Strix z270i i7-7700k Asus Strix GTX1080TI OC Edition, Corsair H80i v2 HyperX 16gb Ram EVGA SuperNova G3 850w Samsung Evo 960 250gb Firecudda 2TB

In some of the older pics I had my XFX R9 390 GPU in it but kept pics to show off led lighting. Just purchased and installed the Strix GTX1080ti OC.

I removed the Hue strip and controller, and added an Akasa AK-RLD-02 Vegas to control 2 RGB Strips with Asus Aura. Also unable to hookup usb for pump for custom color or Hue controller due to mobo not having a usb 2.0 header and did not want to run cable outside of case.

Was able to put Corsair H80i v2 in with push-pull right up to accent bar while feeding the pump tubes behind the bar (over the top). Had an extra Corsair AF120 and mounted beneath radiator as intake, and kept the 2 NZXT Fans where they were already installed as exhaust but removed filter on exhaust top. Very tight build, but manage to fit everything in. Aiming to making the case look like Nu Gundam, Amuro's Red Logo on front panel.

04/02/18 update included #JMmods custom ssd I requested and had hooked me up. It's little but it accents just enough for my liking.

04/08/18 added my SD Nu Gundam gunpla figure and placed inside case, worse case scenario if I plan on playing a graphic intense game, I'll take out the figure, but tempts rarely go over 84c.

04/21/18 Pro Cablemod Red Cables Extensions, and 3 Deepcool 120mm RGB Fans. Decided to rewire the RGB setup. Now with the RGB mobo header controlling the 2 LED strips and Custom SSD Cover and the 3 Fans shared with the GPU Header. The End Result is epic. Check out the Video

no inlet from your fans, all extracting, doesnt seem to wise

Actual cooling isn't too bad for everything but the gpu, but I'm gonna play with the setting abit with afterburner. That seems to be hitting pretty high. The Front case fans I thought the same too, but the AIO is fine. Any Suggestions?

i'd switch the entire front end round, that way cool air will be acting as an inlet allowing the top and rear to extract correctly, also allowing the bottom front fan to blow cool air onto your gpu, which should help with temps

can't do that with h80i v2 with push pull, the gpu wouldn't fit. I thought trying to put it as exhaust at 1 point but the tubes wouldn't let it bend that way

i meant switchin the fans round the right way so they are bringing air in the front of the case, not changing the whole setup round

I love the blue and the red. Can i ask how you do that? Feel like doing that for mine as well!

I bought 2 LED strips, "Deep Cool RGB 350" with magnetic and with the motherboard only having 1 header, I bought an "akasa Vegas Control Card" Everything is controlled through Asus Aura. Couldn't find a spot to mount the Control, but when i removed the nzxt controller, I put it there. I love the colors too, I use to have the setup in a corsair carbide air 240, but the tempered glass does accent it amazing.

what size is the case fan on top and rear? I really like this design and VERY CLEAN! EPIC single colors. +1

They are the stock NZXT case fans, 120mm (Aer F120 Case Version) that come with the case already installed, removed the little screen on the top though, felt like it restricted airflow out. They do look bigger than the Corsair Fans I have on the front and they are the same size.

The colors I agree are epic though.

Your build inspired my newest setup. How did you fit the h80 tube around the top fan? We have almost the same exact build but I'm having trouble putting the tube back there. I assume you removed the fan? I had to remove the white accent strip just to get the rad and fans to work. Sick work bro!

Sorry for late reply, I ended up feeding the up above the bar and then each tube went around the fan. the 1 closest to the glass I tied with a small zip-tie to fan screw loop so it didn't press up against the glass. Hope that helped.

how's the gtx 1080 ti temp? if it touches the shroud?

  • 13 months ago

It actually isn't touching, but it is super close. My latest test was playing monster Hunter world on max everything on 4k and it ran at 82c

if i'll use 1080p or 1440p would the temps lower right?

  • 13 months ago

If aiming for 1080p. Most games I played barely touch 70c. It's set that the fans don't kick on until 60c

Great build, thanks for sharing. It helped me with mine, using the same case/h80iv2/gpu.

What do you mean by "push-pull right up" ? It looks like your H80i V2 slides above your gpu, how did you manage ? My H80i slightly touches against the gpu colour wires at the back.

I've also noticed a very low spinning noise from the gpu (which disappears if I push on case frame between the gpu and psu) - have you experienced the same issue ? It's like the graphic card is 1mm too close to the frame.

Thanks for your input!
