A build to use for the next 5 or 6 years :)
I love the Nano S! Your little build is so compact and great. I wish there were more photos!
Will upload more photos in a bit! :)
Nice build. Love the all black theme. I was wondering how much room do you have behind the cooler for the ssd?
Oh there's a lot! I would say maybe half an inch more space?
Very nice and clean build. I was considering this case before settling on the Mini C.
Quick question on the Kraken. Any reason you didn't go with the x62? and how quiet is the unit under load?
I guess it's because i wasnt sure of the space between the x62 rad and the SSDs
Ah, that makes sense. How quiet is the pump/fans that come with the cooler?
I've been wavering on investing in a kraken or buying something else and adding quiet fans, but once I factor in the after market fans, it comes to the same price as the Kraken anyway.
So if the fans on the Kraken can compete in noise with the likes of be quiet! or Noctua, then it seems logical for me to invest in one.
this is my first time using an AIO cooler and all i can say is that is has gotten a lot quieter compared to air cooling. the kraken pump and fans seem very quiet. havent really tried using be quiet! or noctua fans though.
I love the mounted SSDs. How did you do that?
The elongated holes for mounting the reservoir has the exact location as the screw holes of SSDs
Beautiful! :) +1
Black builds are just so dang clean, well done.
Hi, question about the x52. Do you think tall ram will fit with that thing installed? Currently looking for mobos and the only thing I can find that can do this is the Z270I strix, but it doesn't have USB 2.0 headers :(
i dont think tall rams like the hyperx predators will fit with the x52. i actually got lucky because i did not think about ram clearance until i saw a review of the cooler master masterliquid 240 (non-pro version) because that was what i was planning to get originally. see here: https://youtu.be/4TMgDLhylAY?t=3m28s
This build is awesome! I love the aesthetic.
Did you have trouble mounting the NZXT Kraken though? I'm thinking of purchasing the same but I don't know if the Nano S has enough mounting depth for it.
i had no problems mounting it. i guess you will need to see if your graphics card will still fit after mounting the kraken because as you can see, there is limited space. if you have a graphics card that is as long as the galax 1070 exoc, then you are ok :)
Great looking build!
CPU cooler fans: Are they setup as intake or exhaust?
How about the rest of the fans? -> Which ones are intakes and exhausts?
There are only a total of 3 fans. 2 intakes or push config for the front mounted rad and 1 exhaust on the back :)
