Description

Built this new rig for gaming, music production and school. It took me a while to research what I wanted to put into this thing but finally got it all together with all the goodies I wanted (for now). I love the Corsair 780T case and how easy it was for cable management. Did my benchmarks and loved the results. Can't wait to punish this system with rendering with this 6 core beast. Easily over clocked to 4.4 @ 1.300V. Lots of cooling supplied buy the H115i Corsair CPU Cooler and the three intake fans in the front. Has a few extras so put on in the bottom for some extra flow upwards to allow for faster heated air to travel out of the case through the top and rear exhaust. Used a pull configuration for the radiator. Love that setup for easy cleaning.

Awesome! I love the cleanness of the build. With that 1000 watt PSU you can upgrade to dual 390's for a real gaming powerhouse.

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Thanks!!! That's the plan to get another 390. But for now one will have to do.

really nice.. any detailed comments about the AIO? i'm going to build my own gaming pc but just really stumped on which AIO to get..

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

4.4ghz 1.3v AIDA64 100% CPU LOAD MAX TEMP 71c Super easy to install. Use the Corsair Link to adjust your temps and fan speed ranges. Really happy with this product. Def recommend !! Only this i'd change if i was designing it would be the location of the MINI USB plug in. kind of looks ugly but with time spend with cable management it'll work out. Also if you don't want it just adjust your settings then the pump setting stay in the pump firmware so you can take the USB plug out.

Great build, but I have a question: Are you running those HDDs in RAID 1? If not, having one drive would be better because there would be less noise.

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Thank you. Not in RAID1. I'm pulling information off them from my old build into my NAS which i have a 4TB drive. When complete Ill remove one to keep one as a storage and also get another SSD for storage and plan on getting a NVME drive when prices drop.

Caminon 1 Build 3 points 32 months ago

Ah, okay. That makes sense. Those NVMe drives are pretty nice.

Quick question, new to computer building, huge into gaming, just built my computer with very similar price and parts. Do you use any of the monitoring software Asus has such as AI Suite 3 (not sure if x99 chipset uses the same thing), and if so this is referring to the Corsair case fan control. I have the same 780T. Monitoring software does not recognize that fans are on and its to my knowledge that for this to happen, I would have to plug fans into motherboard and disregard the 3 speed fan control which is ONE reason I bought the case. Thoughts? Any issues with your build?

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

I first set the front fans to use the fan controler off the 780T. But at the lowest RPM setting it was still a bit load. So I went with using the Asus Suite and plugged all my fans to the MOBO would control the speeds. Since my build runs very cool, the AI Suite allows the fans to run a lot slower RPM and only when needed. So for a lot less noise. But everything worked with the fan controller. Just opted out and got rid of the cables involved.

WhippleTi 2 points 32 months ago

Thank you, I think I will do the same. So your button is just for cosmetic lol. Nice build btw.

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Thanks!

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

And yes while using the 780T fan controller you will not be able to monitor them via software. Toggle speed control only.

Unless you just removed it for the pictures, you should keep the front dust filter in front of your intake fans on. Besides that nice build +1

Ayrze submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

Removed for pictures only. Filters on all time!. Thanks! :)

MrMoose88 5 Builds 1 point 32 months ago

ok cool, yeah those blue corsair fans are nice

Simple and practical, looks great.

Xejerym 3 Builds 1 point 32 months ago

So why is that everybody with the graphite 780t is taking off the front panel filter? Is there a defect I haven't heard of? I was looking into getting the case to replace my current one, so that's why I'm curious.

JK. I just read the comments....

Thanks. Minimal color. Nothing crazy. Clean look was what I was after.
