Description

This is my first true build. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how these parts would look in the white Enthoo Pro as there aren't many out there that I could find with the same style that I was going for. I wanted a white build, but it has been done plenty of times in the h440. I decided to take a risk and get the Pro, and I have to say I am extremely pleased!

For anyone unsure of getting the Enthoo Pro because of the tinted windows, don't be! With some decent LEDs (I'm using a Silverstone White strip), the window is as clear as the h440! Cable management is phenomenal right out of the box, great airflow, awesome texture. The case is perfect for the price.

As for the motherboard, I would say that the Mark S warrants the price tag. It just looks so clean and has that nice heavy solidity to it. The h100i is working great so far. I did encounter the "looseness" when initially installing the back plate that other Asus mobo owners encountered, but when fully tightening the thumbscrews it was nice and locked in, no additional washers needed.

Overall I'm pretty happy with this build. In the future I'd like to get a gtx 980 and maybe implement a full water cooling loop. I need to get another set of white Silverstone extension cables for the top left of the mobo, but after that I think I'm gonna leave this build alone for a while!

If you have any questions or would like specific pictures feel free to ask.

My only question... Why three different size monitors?

Good question! I didn't buy them all at once, which indeed would be very weird. For the last year I've been studying film production and editing, so when I started using Adobe Premier I grabbed some of the monitors I had lying around, which were unfortunately different sizes.

Great build! You should do the light mod where you use sand paper to get rid of the green.

Thank you! That's a great idea, I might try it.

Nice job. I love picture eight. The case is brighter than the monitor.

Thanks. Yeah, I was so worried that it wouldn't be bright enough with the tinted case windows, I'm glad it turned out ok.

Even with the shroud, you still ought to flip over the psu.

How loud is the case??? I mean with everything going. I was looking to get the White Fractal Design R5 with a window but it's sold out everywhere. Mine will be going on top of my desk.

Based on my previous experience the case itself, with the stock fans, is "normal" mines louder because I have the h100i with stock fans aswell. Swap in some Noctua's and I'm sure it'd be great.

Beautiful build! +1 for Heisenberg. ;)

Do you have your H100i as intake or exhaust? I'm going with this same case and a similar liquid cooler. Thanks!
