Description

Well this was my first build and it went great! With the help of pcpartpicker.com and many YouTube videos putting it together was a breeze. Also lots of help from linusTechTips! I am still new to this and haven't overclocked anything yet but will do some tinkering down the road. If you have any questions let me know!

Was it hard to cable manage, your case looks kinda small.

wasn't bad at all, there is a nice space below near the power source for cables. I'd say hardest cable pain was the fans, I just used twist ties for their small size and tied everything near the edges to keep a clean look.

Can you play all the latest games at Max settings and ultra with 60+ fps?? I'm trying to build a PC for the predator too.

yeah, Unigine benchmark with everything maxed 1440p avg frame rate was around 70. played fallout 4, GTA V, and Skyrim all above 60FPS with everything maxed

Man, I'm loving this build! Tell me about your temps in that case. Love the v21.

Temps have been great! Max I've got on CPU is 76 and GPU I think about 80. I have the 2 SP fans on the radiator pulling in fresh cool air, and the big Air flow guy up front pulling in air. Then an exhaust in the back and two exhausts above the GTX 1080 to push out its heat. Seems to be working well.

congrats on the build, I have the same case with the same CPU and GPU (FE) and an h115i instead of the h100i but my Temperatures never exceed 50 on the CPU in stress tests. even though the radiator is bigger, but it shouldn't make a difference of 26 degrees. I've read that these open fan GPUs are bad for small cases compared to the FE with a vapor chamber. also bad for SLI in small cases, all for the same reason, they blow very hot air to other components. but still 26 degrees!. you could try a few things, 1- download corsair link and set the pump speed to maximum or "performance" at all times (which is something you should do even if the temperature was not an issue) this will give you better cooling and help your pump live longer. 2- change the fans' locations or add new fans (read about difference between having a positive or negative pressure inside your case) I've been wanting to share my build for a while now but I keep procrastinating

How is the one 1080 performing? Have any benchmarks?

This being my first computer build I am new to the whole overclocking and such. I watched a linus tech tips video on overclocking the 6700k and have successfully overclocked it to 4.5GHz on the first attempt and will try to push it further tomorrow. As for the 1080 I am unsure the proper procedure to overclock it. If you have any tips or software that you use to benchmark and/or keep an eye on temps and such please let me know

Hi there nice build there wanted to ask you a question I see you are using a thermaltake 200 led fan for the front of the case. I also have the same one but its white led and I cant get the front panel to shut close all the way does your close evenly?
