Part Reviews

Memory

G. Skill always killing it with looks.

Storage

Works great as a boot drive.

Storage

No noise and great speeds.

Video Card

This thing is fast, silent, and fast.

Case

Great looking case with lots of room for cable management. Airflow in this case is tricky, but luckily there are guides online for getting the optimal solution.

Monitor

When the screen is black, there is a little bit IPS glow. But other than, it's pretty amazing. 1440p, 144Hz, IPS all in one monitor? YES. You better have a ballin' graphics card to support this beast.

Keyboard

Fits quite well with the rest of this build. Before this, I had a refurbished K70 with red switches for 2 days before I returned it back to Newegg. I then bought this K70 with brown switches since it went on sale. Good news is that this keyboard is the one with the Corsair logo with the sail.

Mouse

Great mouse, fits my hand comfortably and no problems with it.

Other

What's the point of glass if you can't really see through it?

Other

Braided cables are a whole lot better than your regular cables. I got tired of regular PSU cables being so bulky. With these, I can have my cords flat and look great.

Ah yes, the classic mullet in PC wire management..

Clean and nice in the front, a weird somewhat organized mess in the back.

+1 for an exceptional, no expense spared build. Looks great buddy.

I'm terrible with games

Tell what do you think of the h115i cooling performance? I am a little disapointed, i got the best Static Fans for it,the noctua NF-A14 industrial and the temps are very high. I use the pump in performance mode always and altought the radiator is not hot. My i5 7600k at 4.7 ghz goes to 68º-69º gaming.

Is there a trick about the contact between the plate and the cpu that i am missing?

I love that case, try mount the radiator on top so u can put front fans airflow the insisde of the case

The 115i has okay performance, although I'm looking to upgrading to one of Swiftech's or EKWB's AIOs in the future. I set a custom fan curve so that the fans don't go to 90% during load. Now they operate at 70% at 70 degrees. For what made a difference for me was the position my rad was mounted in. This case a gap between where the rad is and the top of the case. Moving it to the front dropped by temps. by at least 5 or more degrees.

That is exactly the position of my RAD in front of the case. using artic MX-4 paste and Noctua Industrial PPC 3000rpm fans.. And the temps are horrible..i have the cpu at 4.7Ghz voltages between 1.220 -1.260 Only Gaming reaches 70-71 one core or two.. dont understand what is wrong..

Hey man, Sweet build! I have a question concerning the SSD Bracket from Phantek, did it come with 4 screws for the SSD or did you have to purchase those separately? Thanks,

brigittebeau submitter 2 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

I believe I used some from the box full of screws that came with the case. So yes, it did come with it.
