Description

Will mostly be Autocad/fortnite/roblox playing unless I get into some gaming. Lol

So far I wish I had gotten the 240mm cooler so I could have top mounted it. I’m sort of concerned about airflow and I may need to add 2 more 120mm fans in the top. Now rad is setup with push/pull so we will see what happens. Did I mention I don’t know what I’m doing?

I don’t like the rear fan covering the mobo led. It’s really bothering me but I’m not sure how to fix it.

I won’t have a cpu until Tuesday, that’s why it’s not installed. Yes, I know that’s kind of backwards but I couldn’t sit and wait around on it to get here before I started.

Gpu is set for Tuesday delivery also

Cable management in this case is meh.

EDIT: This thing is a freaking beast. I am shocked how good it performs and it fired up the first try. Pretty proud of myself.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU. It's hitting 4.95GHz and not missing a beat. Glad I didn't spend the money on the i9.

CPU Cooler

Great cooler. Performs really well and keeps my i&-9700k running 4.57GHz under 70 degrees Celsius.

Motherboard

I mean, it's a great mobo. The BIOS is a little funky to figure out but other than that it pretty much has every option I need. Fusion RGB could be a little better, and allow you to control it better. But it functions pretty flawlessly.

Memory

Seems to work decent. I don't really have any complaints about it.

Video Card

Holy freaking crap. This thing is an absolute beast. It literally shreds everything I have played at all epic settings. The only drawback is the driver seems to not like Windows 10 pro. At startup it locks the screen up, the screen goes black and restarts. That's the only real drawback I have found to it. After everything is booted it works fantastic.

Case

It's a solid case honestly. Cable management is pretty difficult and that's why it's not a 5 star. If you have to front mount the rad you will can only get 2 screws in your SSD unless you buy the drive bays and put them down in the HDD slots. Not a huge deal, but it is an issue.

Power Supply

Great power supply. I like the flat ribbon cables better than I did the round cables with my EVGA.

Hey for someone not knowing what they are doing , You did a pretty damn good job. the rad on the front works in this case since you can't pull from the floor . Your shroud blocks that . IMO if you pop a couple of 200 MM fans up top you shouldn't have any problems with airflow bottom/right to top/left . Thermaltake CL-F015-PL20BL-A comes to mind as a good choice with a 129 CFM air flow

Thanks! Yep that’s exactly what I was thinking. Either the Thermaltake fans or a couple Corsair rgb to match the rad fans.

I’ve also learned I dont like headers. Trying to figure that out about made me break ****. Some of the front panel cables were not labeled. Wasn’t fun at all haha

A slim 15mm fan should reveal the A in your AORUS. Also you can consider mounting smaller diameter exhaust fans using the honeycomb grid rather than the conventional screw holes.

Yea That’s what I’ll have to do. Just made a gpu change too.

The Aorus brand will be one of the cleanest looking cards on the market right now. Really like your build!

Thanks! Man I wish I had room to vertical mount it. The rgb that card has are freaking awesome looking.

Not only does it look good, it performs even better. Really wish I could see the LED lights on the fan because they really are awesome. Debating if I have room to vertical mount it and not choke the fans out.

Correction: cable management in this case is terrible. I’m starting to wish I had gotten a full tower.

Just made a gpu change to the Gigabyte AORUS 2070 SUPER

Made some progress today on cable management, got rid of the Thermaltake exhaust fan and replaced it with an LL120RGB and added 2 more of them in the top of the case. Really wish they’d make these fans with the airflow going the other way too. Grabbed a commander pro to sync them all up.

Ok guys, some help if you can.

There are 3-120mm (stock case fans) in the front pushing through the rad, and the 2-140mm (ML140 Pro) fans pulling to the inside. I replaced the exhaust fan on the back with the LL120RGB, and added two more up top. My intention was to let the top two blow down in the case to push air over the gpu, which also puts the RGB facing inside the case.

You think that will work? I have debated several times making the top two 120mm fans exhaust, but the RGB will be turned the wrong way. Yeah, that sounds stupid. lol

Did some benchmark testing with everything stock and was more than impressed. Under heavy load only saw 57 degrees Celsius max. Thing idles at 32 Celsius so we’ve got plenty of room to OC.

Realized I had the rad fans blowing the wrong way. Flipped them around and now it idles at a cool 26 Celsius, 52 Celsius under load. That cooler is fantastic.

Doing a psu change tomorrow. Went to OC and the mobo needs the extra 4 pin power and this power supply doesn’t have it. Going 750w Corsair.

Changed psu to the corsair RM750. Made a HUGE difference in benchmark numbers! PSU matters!

Added a picture of the difference.

Running at 4.95GHz and staying under 70 degrees Celsius. Finally figured out the BIOS for the Aorus mobo. It's sort of wonky but once you figure it out it works.

I did liquid cooling, and I won't be returning to air cooling for anything now. It just works man. I did it because it's quieter and it looked cool. lol

I have no airflow issues with this case at all. It has 3-120mm fans installed when you buy it, I front mounted the rad and put the 2-140mm fans on the back side of the rad. It is setup as a push/pull configuration. I added 2-LL120 RGB fans in the top for exhaust, and replaced the rear fan with an LL120RGB fan also.

I build a 2nd one with the V200, different mobo but still the same results. The temps hover around the same as this one.
