Description

1440/144 gaming rig with an 8700k, Maximus X Hero and 1070 TI in a Phanteks P350X.

Yes, the Noctua D15 fits with this motherboard in this case. I am only running one fan (pushed all the way down toward the motherboard on the cooler) to accomodate the Trident Z RAM. You could run both fans with low profile RAM like the Corsair LPX. There is not much clearance between the end of the heat pipes and the glass, but it fits fine with this setup.

The case itself is a tight fit and the cutout for the ATX connector is way too small, but otherwise I have no issues with it. I debated between this case and the Fractal Meshify and went with the P350x because...lights.

The CableMod modmesh cables are terribly stiff and I would have gone with modflex cables if I had it to do again.

Overall I have no real complaints. Will likely upgrade the GPU in the near future, but EVGA had such a great deal with the 1070 TI FTW2 bundled with the 750 watt G+ power supply that I decided to go with the 1070 TI and see what happens with the new NVIDIA line and the current GPU prices.

What are the temps for only having 1 fan on an 8700K. I don't believe you said it was delidded, so that might run a tad hot.

Everything is stock. Temps are fine on the cpu. 30 C at idle. 40 C at load.

That is crazy. Who knew you could get the same temps as a AIO with 1 fan on an air cooler. What kind of games do you play? AAA titles? Cause that would be cheaper upgrade wise for the couple computers I am working on upgrading/building.

yeah iphone typo - should say 50C at load. When I run Cinebench the CPU peaks in the mid 50s. 55 once and 56 once.

Coud you do me a big favour? I see you have the nh-d15 inside, and that one is 160mm tall, just as the case stated limit. I am really wanting to build a x399 workstation in the p350x case with a eatx mobo and want to use the cooler master wraith ripper cooler which is 160.5mm high. When you look at your setup, do you think there is enough space for me to fit this cooler without touching the glass?

The difference in hight is so small,i just cant sleep without knowing hehe. I suspect the max cooler hight of the p350x is probably 161-162mm but I just don't want to risk it without knowing and stupid Phanteks doesn't respond to my question..

Cheers

Probably. You just have to remember you're dealing with loose tolerances on all of the components in the case - chassis, motherboard standoffs, etc. Phanteks isn't manufacturing any of these dimensions with great precision and as a result they are recommending a 160 mm cooler height, which gives them space between the end of a cooler and the glass plus a little wiggle room in case some of the tolerances are a little off.

I have maybe 1-2 cm clearance between the end of the heat pipes on the cooler and the glass. There's no real way to give you a certain answer because im not using the same motherboard, cooler, etc. This is building outside of the specs of the cooler and the case so you kind of have to try and see what happens or go with a bigger case or smaller cooler. I know that's not the answer you want, but that's all I can tell you - either try and hope for the best, but don't be dissapointed if it doesnt work or go with a different case - like the Fractal Meshify. Good luck.

Love the build and the cable combs!

I'm on a similar build with ASRock Z370 Taichi, i5-8600K and the Noctua NH-D15S. Seeing your build it seems like the cooler will fit snug in this chasis. But the problem with me is that I'm buying this from local retailer and there's no chance of return or refund unless there's some manufacturing defect. That is why I want to step very carefully before buying this case.
