Description

Hello@all!

please forgive me for my english, it's not my native language :)

CPU: I have overclocked the baby to 4.5Ghz@1.272V, it's powerful enough for the next years, nothing more to say.

CPU-Cooler: I use the Corsair H115i with 4 BeQuiet! SilentWings 3 in push/pull.

Mainboard: The mainboard has all the things that are needed for a gaming PC, the RAM is running at 3000 Mhz Cl15 without any issues.

RAM: RAM is working with the settings are programmed in the XMP 2.0.

SSD: The 850 Pro is for the OS and all the programs like AutoCAD, Corel Suit, Office and it's works really well. The 850 Evo is for games an downloads etc., and it's working without any problems too.

GPU: I've choosen the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW ACX 3.0, it's running at 2050 Mhz Core and 10.500 Mhz Memory and max. Temps around 70°C.

Case: The case is the most beautiful case i've ever bought, the assembling was nice and easy without any problems, the cable management options of the case are almost flawless, all the cables can be hide at the back of the mainboard tray.

PSU: 850Watt, 10 years warranty and it works.

Fans: BeQuiet SilentWings 2 140mm, they are silent, have a nice airflow, perfect.

LED: The Bitfenix magentic LED strip is easy to apply at any place of the case, because it is made out of steel.

This build is inspired by TechSource :) https://pcpartpicker.com/b/t4HNnQ

Fantastic Build. I plan on copying this build, but using the 6600k and MSI GTX 970 as I plan on gaming at 1080p. How do you like the cpu fan? How difficult was it to install?

Thanks :) The CPU cooler is nice, and easy to install, it keeps the CPU cool and it's quiet, even at 4.5Ghz. I've put the 4 female screws on place, then i was holding/fixing it with the included wrench and tightend it from the back of the mainboard with a screwdriver. Maybe you could use the Dark Rock 3 without the "Pro", but it wouldn't look that impressive ;)

Hi Waldi123,

I had a quick question for you. I have started building a Manta based on your design and (techSource) and wanted to know about your fan configuration. are your top fans exhaust or intakes? was there a reason not to add the back fan as an exhaust? i know it fits (tight) but why not put it? just want to get your feedback and your expertise.

thank you!

I don't think my system needs more fans, maybe I'll install one in the future, but at this moment I don't need it, because the cooler fans blowing air through the backside anyways, but if you want to install one, go for it :)

The 2 fans in the front are intakes and my 2 top fans are exhaust.

Are you able to control all your fan speed with the Fan Hub of the Manta? I saw a lot of forums with that issue not being able to control them with the fan hub.

thank you!

I just let them run at full speed, because they are not that noisy. I don't think the fanspeeds are controllable with that controller. I'll check that when I'm at home.

I readed in the manual, that there has to be a fan connected to the white 4-pin connector, to use the PWM signal on the other ports of the fan hub, because the white one it for the RPM signal to the mainboard. Otherwise all fans are running at full speed. You could try this if you want.
