i'm moving from my last case ( bf prodigy ) to this case. Here the link for my last build :https://pcpartpicker.com/b/zJNNnQ. well the case quality was top, really different from the last. in only 5 month usage the prodigy handle and the soft touchfront panel start to yellowing. it's really UGLY.
i'm using this rig for gaming in 4k res. yeah well not in constant 60 fps. range from 35-55 fps depend on the games. some setting need to be dial down from ultra to high ( crysis 3, far cry 4, shadow of mordor) and only use fxaa for the anti alliasing. Well the picture quality was really an eye candy. well this rig can push that pixel while remain very silent thanks for the noctua fan really a great fan. For black case like this node it's really a beauty imho.
The only thing need to be changed in this buil was my psu a little to tight for this build. Any reccomendation on that? If possible i'd like to have a hybrid fan like this seasonic x series. really help silencing the build :D .
The nh d15 3 fan setup was possible in my node because i'm not using the stock psu cage. the psu sits on velcro straps. The third fan was really helping in silencing the build further ( in pwm mode ). And for my silent freak ear i'm adding some sound dampener in this build. Really help the sound from leak from the case ,in my old build the 100% fan speed it was really loud maybe because i'm sitting next to it.
Ps: sorry for the crappy pict :p
Super silent and can cope with 1.3 volt from devil canyon. give this beast a third fan for maximum silent@ lower rpm
a very nice layout mini itx board for high compatibility air cooling.
Very silent at non gaming condition. The fan barely spin 60% while gaming at 4k at 1450 mhz overclock.
Very sturdy and very high build quality. After moving from the prodigy you can tell the differnce in quality.Very nice fractal design.
Semi fanless a must for a silent operation pc . The fan noise are very inaudible even when reaching 500 watt usage.
Solid build and do you find this fan ugly. For me it's a nice non main stream colour scheme. Well for people who find flashy led fan or rubber ring fan a beauty , then this fan was not for you.
well aside from the stand, can't complain on anything else.
Great 60% keyboard. Just don't like the space bar sizing it's 5.5 and it was pain in the *** to find pbt replacement for it.
solid mice with a very good sensor. For those who play games a lot then this mice won't fail you.
Now this can was a black horse at audiophile world. A nice wide soundstage for immersive gaming with good amount of bass. For music maybe the high a bit on the harsh side. Please give this can a try you will be blown.
