I built my first PC 3years ago and have been addicted ever since. This was my 3rd case move in that time period (ATX > ATX > mATX > ITX) and I can confidently say I've finally achieved a build I will keep until the 21 series comes out. My last build was in the corsair 280x and was decked out in rgb. This time around I went minimal rgb with all noctua fans.

This rig is silent as snow. Overclocked CPU (i7 7700k at 4.9ghz) and GPU (2080 ti at 2100 mhz) which settle in the mid 70s for CPU and mid 50s for GPU.

Hi there, what's that thing cover up your GPU? NZXT cooler?

It's an nzxt g12 bracken and corsair h55 aio used to liquid cool the gpu

Man, you messed up with the 120mm AIO. If you had gone with a 240mm or 280mm in push/pull you would have had used up every bit of available space in that case

I assume, if he used 2 fans AIO he would have worse temps for the processor because the cold air coming inside the case from the front would immediately become hot while going through the 2 fans radiator at the front. Next, this hot air would go to the CPU cooler which already blocks half of the case, so no way to take cold air from anywhere else.

Apart from that, GPU doesn't really need more AIO than 1 fan radiator.

hey I was wondering where did you fit the 3.5 HDD I am about to build my pc and I have almost the same parts plus the 3.5 HDD IDK if it's gonna fit

Fits no issue in front of the psu

Looks fantastic. Any reason why you went with liquid cooled gpu and not cpu? Is it even possible to do both in this case?

Thanks! Liquid is better for GPU, noctua air cooler is quieter and equally as efficient as an AIO and I just really like the looks

Nice! What did you do with the original (brown) fan that came with the D15s? I saw no option to buy them with the black fan(s) by default.

Sold it on Ebay.

Do you have 3 Noctua NF-S12A Chromax’s installed? Front, back, and on the Corsair H55?

Do you ram modules sit up in between the heat fins and the front fan? Looking to change over to this cooler and wondering if I need to change my trident z modules or not

As long as you get the d15s, no clearance issue

One other question, what AIO are you using for the GPU? Im wondering weather to reuse my 240 X52 for my GPU but concerned about the hot air from that entering the case for the CPU Cooler. Or just sticking with my 120 H55 AIO. Or maybe get a 140mm AIO.

I'm using the old corsair h55. The new one isn't compatible with the g12. What case are you in? An x52 wont fit on the GPU in the h200i not enough clearance beneath the GPU. A 240 aio would be awesome for the GPU. I'm considering giving one a try.

Yea the H200i im using atm. I was actually looking at that last night thinking the X52 Pump might be to big but was going to give it a try to make sure, I thought it might just squeeze in. Have you come across anyone who has tried this an failed? Or do you know of any lower profile 240 aios?

Yeah I saw someone online that tried and failed. I THINK this would be your best bet: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F272511955031 but I'm not entirely sure

Can I ask what desk you're using? Looks like it's Ikea but I can't find any L-shaped desks from there.

what kind of push/pull configuration do you have for your fans?

  • 9 months ago

Nice build! Have you noticed any decrease in gpu temps with push-pull fans mounted on Corsair H55 radiator? Because I run exactly the same setup 2080ti with only pull fan mounted on radiator and temps are great max 62c. I also removed the midplate, did you put any heatsinks on the 2080ti VRM-RAM? Thanks for the reply.

Love your build! I'm curious as to where you got your ATX cable extensions. I'm building a white/black/grey machine right now, and they would be perfect.

Hi, very nice build. I was wondering, NZXT says the maximum CPU cooler height for the H200 is 165mm, the height of the Noctua D15S is 165mm, but mounting the Noctua Cromax increases the total height of 5mm, so, how did you manage to maintain everything "inside" ?

cheers

Wow, this is such an amazing build! :))

I', considering building in the same nzxt case and save some money and buy an ultrawide monitor too :)

However, I wonder, what are the sizes of two vertical monitors, are they both 24 or 27 inches ??

So did you switch cases? This is not the one posted in your part list....

Conventionally, you would have front fans as intake and back + top fans as exhaust

With the NHD15S I have ample clearance. I wish I could get w picture of it but there's still a good amount of room even with the tridentz ram.
