Description

I wanted to build a small machine with powerful part. I'll be mainly using this for uni work and gaming.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU. I've only overclock this CPU up to 4.4Ghz using my cooler just to be safe. I'll clock it to 5.0Ghz once I save up for a watercooling and tubing.

CPU Cooler

Very good alternative to stock cooler and have a bit of overclocking potential as well. I'll be replacing this after I get my watercooling and tubing.

Motherboard

I had this shipped from the US this they yet to have it in Australia. It's a really board with lots of features without compromising the price. I've paired my motherboard heat sink to black just so that it matches with my build.

Memory

Very good memory and look awesome

Storage

Cheap and good performing SDD

Video Card

Got this cheap off Gumtree (Australia's version of craiglist) I wanted a founders edition to match with my biuld

Case

This case look sick and has a lot of watercooling potential which I will do later on. I've replaced the NZXT logo led with green to match my biuld and I wasn't disappointed

Case Fan

Painted all of my fans Green to match my build. Although I have lots of fans, these fans still run really quiet.

Great job! Looks super clean!

How did you change the led for the nzxt logo? I literally bought the case yesterday and was thinking about changing it.

heyitzkim submitter 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Thanks man. Ohh it easy. Just buy some small leds (check the parts, but it can be something else similar), open the screws leading to the nzxt logo then tape the leds to the white rectangular white panels.. I unplugged the white led so that it glows more dark green. Good Luck

Where did u get those black/green cable sleeves? :3

heyitzkim submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

got it from mwave.com.au

SynYouTube 1 point 7 months ago

Also, how did u paint the rings of the fans, just spray painted them? or did u sandpaper it, coat with primer and paint it green? (Can I know what color green that is? Wanting to make a razer green themed build :))

heyitzkim submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yup exactly what you just said just spray paint

doorstoon 1 point 6 months ago

JUst wondering how did you connect all the fans?

SynYouTube 1 point 6 months ago

He probably had fan splitters

heyitzkim submitter 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

NZXT Manta case comes in with fan splitters =)

Very nice indeed! How are you getting on with M.2 temp's? I've got an nvme drive and it just must have a fan nearby to keep it below 60c!
