Description

Named after Douglas Adams' famous fictional supercomputer this is a replacement for a previous build which I lost in a house fire. As my third build I think it went quite well and my cable management is definitely improving. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the inside, but I'll do so and upload ASAP.

Nice build. I am using MSI products in my build as well...Does the front door come off so you can show off you cool fan controller? I think it would would like nice either way...

With this being a gaming build, what are you using for mouse and keyboard?

Thanks!

Sorry about the late reply - I don't check this site much...

Unfortunately the door doesn't come off, no ):. That being said, I don't find it an inconvenience to open the door to access the fan controller. With a little setup, the controller will actually beep if it sees temps going up past a pre-determined amount which is always useful when i forget to ramp up speeds before gaming.

With regard to mouse and keyboard, I use a R.A.T. 9 Albino edition and a Corsair mechanical keyboard.

Nice ! pretty simple , pretty straight forward. Although if youre gonna overclock you might wanna take a look at some after market coolers. That case is pretty much capable of a push pull setup with liquid coolers. Use it to its full potential. +1 for the build.

I'm actually looking at fitting it out with a Corsair H100i right now; unfortunately it looks like the NZXT Kraken is hard to get here.

i personally have a NZXT KRaken X60 cooler setup in there. I have the same case , please check my build ! Anyways , You can put it in Push pull i dont have it in push pull. Also that case can manage a H100i too easily.

What's that case in the first pic, it looks like a custom paint job! EDIT: Never,mind, saw your other build.

That is a special edition Aerocool that took use ages to get at a fair expense, but it's what my sister wanted.

I personally do not have experience with it. I hear they are good, as well as the dual bay touch screen one.

It is good, but you need to know its limitations. For one, it's not exceptionally good at automatically adjusting fan speeds based on the temperature readings it takes with its probes (this might just be because I don't place them very well) so it really is a good idea to cut them off and just go manual (as I ended up doing, using some software to monitor temps).

Despite that and the bizarre lack of documentation you get with it (I hope you like prodding screens and trying to work out if that last tap did anything) it really is very reliable, affordable and looks awesome in a dark room.

Nice Build! I am finishing a build similar to yours but not as geared up: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3fWbj I need to get a GPU. How is that 850W working for you? Any recommendations?

  • 67 months ago

Admittedly, the 850W PSU is complete overkill for this build; however, I do plan on adding a new GPU at some point so that's my reasoning.

Also, I would really recommend NOT going Corsair (which i did, this list isn't totally accurate). Everyone who helped me assured me they were the best PSUs on the market; however, I'm now on my third one after RMAing twice and I still get terrible coil whine (I've just given up caring now and try to ignore it)

why does this case needs case fans? isn't it has good airflow?
