Description

This build I made for my friend. He play only Overwatch and StarCraft II. CPU @ 4.5 (Scalping, stable 49°C on max stress FPU test)

i3 and 1070Ti give very good FPS in this games. OW gets 240 and heigh FPS and very good speed with Alienware monitor with g-sync.

Cables holder is Nanoxia. The build is very-very silent. I change CPU fan to NoiseBlockers couse NB more silent than Noctua and more powerfull wind pressure.

Very nice, Great attention to detail.

I too am building the in the same case, and plan on using the same cooler if possible. Your fan location has me wondering why you chose the top. Was it due to not blocking the exhaust or ram clearance? If pushing down it seams like the fan would be restricted by intake

Oh +) No. The CPU fan location is just to wind the heatsink of m2. SSD. There is was just experiment that gives me to know tha the small distance up fan to glass case hood make great cooling (Sorry fro my English I am from Russia). You make chose standart CPU cooler to wind directly to back greed where U can mount two 80mm fans +)

Not sure, but your set build looks and sounds like it demonstrates the maximum air cooler available for the Core V1 case. How much clearance is there on the intake side of the fan? Does the 200mm stock fan provide enough ventilation?

clearance of top glass and fun about 5mm - this shows that in this small clearance we have very stable colling with OC. 85°C in LinX (30 min testing) Yes the CPU with liquid metall. Yes the build have 200mm front fan.

Here is my own build - https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Q8jypg before build White Active Balance I buyed all components without CPU Noctua. I tested it with my Noctua and after that get good cooling results (because somebody think thas small clearance prevent good cooling) i byed Noctua and Noisblocjers fan for this build.

In the first 2 pictures I thought you just copied the case spec page or a picture of the case but realised that it was the specs of your PC the images are so good. Love the design you did on the images good job.

I love the case, how did you find it to work in? I am planning my first build and ease of use is pretty important to me... size and location of the case is important to my better half.

LOVE how it looks though, and great photos.

nice build +1 how is the ram going for you? I have heard that in dual channel the ram can only get to 2400 rather than 2666

It`s fake news ) You can make 3333 in 4 RAM stick with Samsung M378A1K43CB2-CRC but samsung is green +) So There is REALY no difference 3333 or 2666 or 2133 =) Just put in RAM pod and play. There is so very little games where RAM speed speed up FPS

Currently doing a build with the same case and gpu. I already trimmed the case as I noticed it wouldn't fit. Were you able to fit the 200mm front fan as well as the gpu? It looks like it would rub against the fan on mine. Thanks in advance!

Were you able to fit the 200mm - it`s stock case fan.

I was not able to fit the 200mm fan with the huge gpu. Ended up using a 140 mm

Yap, With huge GPU coolers it`s impossible cose I use MSI with 2 slots coolers

You could just download windows media onto a flash drive or something then install it without having to pay for it

Very well done. Like what you did with securing the cables, nice extra effort to keep the case tidy. Are those custom length cables from the PSU?

From pics 6 and 34, it looks like you had to increase the GPU cutout a bit at the top, mostly to fit the power cables, correct? How did you go about doing that? Am considering a similar case+GPU setup.

  • 10 months ago

All cables are custom.

I used needle file to cut metall in case.

does the i3 bottleneck the 1070 ti?

For Games that I make this build - no +)

I feel like for the game that he/she is playing, you could easily get away with a 1060. The 1070 ti seems a bit wasted here.

The Samsung ssd and PSU are very overkill but nice build!

That I3-8350K is certainly bottlenecking that 1070 ti. I think you should upgrade to an I5-8400 or I5-8600K in order to let the 1070 Ti to fully stretch its legs. Other than that, neat build. Also, sick photography. It is the best I have seen in PC parts picker and one of the best I have seen in the internet

Isn't the I3-8350K essentially equal to the I5 7600k? I'm sure its likely not significantly holding the 1070 Ti back.

Yeah. You is correct

So does it bottleneck or nah? I have these specs but I'm unsure how to check.

If the CPU is pinned at 100% but the GPU has low usage, the CPU is a "bottleneck" in that application/game. If both are about the same, the CPU and GPU are fairly evenly matched. Most likely, your CPU and GPU are fairly evenly matched but it doesn't matter too much as it is likely your monitor is the bottleneck in your setup not your CPU as most monitors are 60hz. If you want to game at 4k 60hz, you can get away with a pentium g4560 with a gtx 1080ti. It would saturate your monitors refresh rate before the CPU became an issue even though your CPU is technically bottlenecking the GPU. The coffee lake i3 is good enough for high refresh rate gaming

I only want 1080p gaming for now or even the next year or so... If i grab myself a 144hz monitor, should expect some bottlenecking from the i3? this is just at 1080p no higher.

This i3 gives to stable 240FPS in Alienware in Overwatch. My friend play many years only in this games. And StarCraft II. For AAA games like Deus Ex or Tomb Rider or Wither 3 i3 is weak for ultra and high setting. Upgrade will be only if he decides, now he has stable 240 fps fro this two games and he happy +)))
