Gaming / General Day to Day. Build turned out pretty well. VERY fast machine.
Would like to hear some personal experiences with some of your core parts.
Yup, like the m.2! Do you notice it overheating like I read on some forums?
I had heard about the same throttling issues but, not really seeing it. I will say that the M.2 being at the bottom of the board (cool zone) keeps a nice low consistent temp.
The build was pretty straight forward. The case has plenty of room to work around. Nice to see all of the mounting options. This is one HEAVY case. Was able to OC to 4.7 but I was was pushing some heavy voltage to it. I backed it down to 4.6. The H100i cooler works just not a big fan of the LED in it. Not getting a "true white". Swapped out the stock Phantek fans for Corsair. The case has some built in LED functions but, I wanted more control so I opted for the Hue+. #LEDMagnetsAreAMust :) GTX 1070 overclocked pretty well. I can run a stable 2113 with running stock voltage. Runs pretty quiet. Spent more time loading Win 10 than building this case. (UFEI / M.2 drama)
Fantastic build, but I feel like it's being held back by that psu, I'd consider replacing it. +1
Agreed. Just posted up in the threads that I ordered a new Corsair with black / white sleeves.
Love that case. Almost bought it instead of my mastercase pro 5 I'm working on right now
The pics do not do the case justice... It looks great with the glass.
That rainbow 24pin connector :/ You can buy maybe cables extensions ?
What i did with my PSU cables to fix this problem : I colored them approximatively with a black permanent marker. It is a bit difficult to color them all but the results are good :)
Yep... Agreed. I wanted to get the build done, fired up, and OC'd with stability. I wasn't sure if I was going to stick with this PSU so I waited until I burned in. I am going to be swapping it out most likely. Already had plans to order a sleeved kit with the new one.
If you do get that new psu, I definitely recommend picking up some cable comes with your new sleeved cable kit. when you have a fair amount of cable showing (like your gpus), a couple of cable comes on each pci-e connector would look great. They come in black too if you want to keep the aesthetic.
Yep.. Just ordered the Corsair and black / white sleeve kit.
I actually didn't realize that I was spelling the wrong word... I meant cable combs, not cable comes. Cable combs will make those custom sleeved cables look even better.
They give a nice look!
are those 120mm fans on the front ? are you using af fans for intake and exhaust ? is corsair fans quieter then case fans ? nice cable management i have the same case loving it.
Yes. They are all SP120 Quiets except for the back is a AF140 quiet. The quiet editions have really done well... Super smooth and like the look. Was trying not to go over the top with LED everything. Case fans are good. Already moved them to another rig.
i am between noctua and these quite series corsair fans hard to decide
These have not disappointed me so far. Please with the choice.
Front fans are 120 used as intake, rear is 140 exhaust. Radiator fans are also 120 in push config exhausting air out the top.
Isn't corsair recommending intake with those closed loop coolers I have h110I gtx and I am using top intake and my Temps are super low idle 30 load 59 60
Not to my knowledge, I'd have to look that up
Maybe you are right I'll update after I check the users manual
looks like i set my h110i gtx as a intake to pc from top mounting. also users manual recommending as well . but exhaust is fine too i think as long as your temps are good leave the way they are
Guys what your opinions are on the side logo on the card? I'm not sure if I like it even though I have always liked EVGA products.
Ironically, that is the reason I ordered this version was because of the white LED presentation. I think it looks good without going over the top. I am one of those that likes LEDs but they have to be done RIGHT! Too much just trashes up the case. I was going back and forth with that Asus mobo and the MSI carbon mobo (Not godlike) but, I wanted to try something different with the white PCB. (Not to mention half the price.)
How is the mobo for you?
Works well... OC was okay. I am able to get to 4.65 but, nothing else.
