This is entirely a gaming machine. Everything fit perfectly into the case with tons of room to spare. The only hiccup I encountered was setting up the ram. When selecting the XMP profile, I had to also switch from "normal" mode to "stability" mode in order to get it to boot at 3600Mhz. The Noctua CPU cooler was also probably the easiest CPU cooler install I've ever had. Also not included in the part list, I replaced all of the fans with Noctua fans, and picked up 3x 120mm Noctua fans for the top mount in the case. Believe it or not, it is very quiet and just gives off a low hum when using all of the low noise adapters that Noctua includes.

Nice build with great parts and way to go AIR only. Just one question though what was the premise of all the top fans (looks like they are exhausting but hard to tell?

stustison submitter 1 Build 1 point 31 months ago

Yep they are exhausting and yes, it causes just a bit of negative pressure. I don't use the low noise adapters on the front fans, but I do on the rest. So the front fans are pushing just a bit more air than the rest. I also have a nice air purifier nearby that collects all the dust, so the room is pretty dust free... also no carpet.

Your case is setup perfectly for front to back airflow especially with your tower cooler. I would suggest removing the top fans altogether as they are stealing air (top front two) from the CPU cooler that the front fan is pulling in, basically cool air exhausts before it even gets to the cooler. Less fans less noise.

wow...... thats really cool.

Negative air pressure?

AddisonKwong 1 point 31 months ago

If this is for gaming purely I suggest you get 8 more Titan Xs and 2 more CPUs, Maybe another 500GBs of RAM and 10 more m.2 SSDs

Oubadah 1 point 25 months ago

Can the M.2 be installed/removed with the Noctua mount and heatsink in place?

stustison submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Yes. Sorry for the late reply.

Hey man sweet build +1.

How's that motherboard running? Run into any issues? I'm thinking about using the same one.

stustison submitter 1 Build 2 points 31 months ago

Board seems fine so far. I've put maybe 25 hours of gaming on it.
