Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Very sexy cooler. Love the extra bracket to mount your own 120mm fan.

Case

Waiting really long for this. It is a very nice case, that is easy to mod. This makes it rather future proof, as you can "upgraded" the case, and never bored of it's looks. If your worry about the dual tempered glass showcase your poor cable management fret not. The glass is a smoke coloured, which hides your cable, unless you purposely put a led strip to showcase your cables. Having that said, I would like to see a clear temper glass option.

Although it is the maker 5t, it does not have the components (plastic handles) to make it a pro 5 or the standard 5 (unlike the maker 5). But for it price, considering it comes with dual temper glass, they have to cut cost somewhere.

Ultimately, it is a really beautiful case, and I have no regrets buying it.

Case Fan

Extremely pretty lights. Will be quite bright if arcylic/glass planel is clear. For this price range it should include more features, (like the Thermaltake Riing 12 LED RGB which can be controller via a software via your phone or computer). It should at least be able to turn off the light!

How do u move your mouse around on your desk? +1 for the great build though

john917 submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

i usually pull the mouse up, just below the monitor. that way i can also rest my fat lazy forearm haha. But by right, I usually use two monitors (one is in my dorm room for the time being), so the key board and mouse will be in the center when i get around to install it.

What are your thoughts on the case?

john917 submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

It is my first time building so i cant comment much. Overall pretty easy considering a beginner like me manage to build one for the first time. The tempered glass is actually dark enough to hide the cables. It is extremely heavy probably 25-30kg. If cooler master does release more stuff for it, should be pretty future proof.

You lucky *******. I've had my eye on this case for awhile, and I am getting this case for my own build. Such an epic looking case.

How did you manage to fit the 298mm video card into the case while keeping the HDD brackets (case can only fit video cards up to 296mm without removing HDD brackets)?

Stunning build...I will be using this for my first build as well. Even the CPU Cooler will be my choice, love the way it looks and has a low noise rate for stock fans. But I also noticed the front fan controller for the HD120s, and that Black on Red looks noice, how were you able to get it like that?

The RED part is vinyl sticker (DIY).

after all that GTX 1060 :V

john917 submitter 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

it is expensive in my country especially since i wanted the strix version, i got the 1060 at a sale for 450, while the 1070 was sold 850. So will upgrade next time.

MARCOzid 1 point 23 months ago

still a wonderful build :) keep
