Description

So finally got enough money together to ascend my GF's current laptop-on-a-couch setup to something i truly take pride in.

The parts are all as listed except the RAM is white and also has the Dummy 0MHz ram kit and the PSU is the White edition as is the Ducky One 2 (White, white LED).

Unlisted parts are the Cablemod vertical GPU holder (wish it came in white :/) and the Cable mod AIO tubing covers that complete this White/Sapphire look, and the two curved samsung screens (24inch 1080p 75hz IPS).

My build is Star Wars themed and she loved the idea of my huge black (Empire) build versus her small but colorful (Rebel) build so we got an X-Wing fighter from Revell and custom painted it to match the Sapphire blue.

I had to use some ingenuity to fit fans on the radiator in the small space in-between the front panel cover and the case. This leaves the front panel slightly bent but the 3D effect it already has (meshify - DUH!) makes it not noticeable.

All in all, we loved building in this thing and it is gorgeous.

why are you running the front fans as exhaust?

He is running them as a pull through the radiator, and there is space limitations with the GPU so regardless it would be tough fitting them both in there.

Impossible, actually. Ad least with the included ML140mm fans that I then mounted to the top of my case.

also another thing, why didnt you just mount the fans inside the chassis, so you didnt have to bend the mesh panel over them?

Front and Rear seem to be exhaust, while the top is intake.

The vertical GPU doesn't seem able to fit with the radiator and fans at the front. The radiator seems to already leave very little room in front of the GPU.

That is correct! Absoluetly no room and this option is way more aesthetically pleasing than trying to somehow mount thinner 120mm fans.

thanks for pointing out the top intake, didnt spot that before, either way he has the room in the front for the fans to be inside the chassis/case, atleast it looks that way from here.

Well actually.. it doesn't fit! :( Trust me I tried really hard but it is just pushing on the gpu if I use the fans that came with the AIO (and I should because they are amazing.). In any case, this was the best solution for me and it is seriously not noticeable unless I point it out to ppl (from IRL showing it)

they sacrificed practicality for looks.

Idk how this case is laid out because I was able to fit a hybrid card in the Define Mini C with a rad in push pull mounted at the front.

The vertical mount has some clearance because it's a one good that doesn't require you to cut up your case because it has a small chamber for your display cables.

In any case nothing was sacrificed here if you discount the usage of a vertical GPU mount in and of itself. The fans just would not fit otherwise.

Nothing says true love more than a custom PC build. You get the first World's Best Boyfriend award of 2019.

really nice rig. Really high quality headphones for this price range. Why so much ram? Most people would be more than fine with 16GB. Unless she is doing video editing, high quality photo editing, video rendering, or programming i dont think it is needed. For general use or gaming 16Gb is more than fine but whatever. Like that is a Ryzen build I like them so much more the Intel. It is a really nice graphics card as well the blue is something you dont see often on cards. All in all nice build +1 (Also what monitors is she using?)

Samsung Curved and normal, FX 24in 1080p 75Hz

Also the RAM is only 16GB, the other two are the amazing corsair Dummy ram modules that have 0MHz but all the looks to make your build feel complete!

I have the meshify and it’s pretty loud. Do you have the same issue?

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

I actually prepared for that in advance, almost ALL of my fans are magnetic levitation (and my PSU is a smart one that doesnt start up until a certain Wattage and it also has the Corsair ML fans). This case is actually quieter than my own Define S (the S is for Silent btw)

Sir , Did you change the fans ? Which fans did you use and how ?

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

No, I used no extra fans other than the ones that came with the case and AIO cooler - except for the single back exhaust 120mm fan that has the White LED's (it's from Corsair).

I love the vertical placement of this gpu and i'm thinking of making a build like this. Is the liquid cooler really necessary? How is it that the graphics card is not so close to the tempered glass? Does it have to do with the case?

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

No it has to do with the CableMod Vertical GPU holder. I highly reccomend it! It's by far the best way to get a vertical GPU without any temp sacrifices (it's running at 30-60°C max). The Cooler-master holder is also good but requires you to mod your case.

The liquid cooler is kiiiinda necessary for my situation because this case isn't as spacious as some so you could encounter higher temps if you go with air cooler and don't want to sacrifice silence. But if you dish out on a Dark Tower Pro 4 or a Noctua air cooler for your CPU I'm sure you will be more than fine. I just wanted a super quiet build :)

wow wish my sapphire card lights hadnt turned green on me it looks so much better with blue :( hope yours doesnt change but ive looked into it and it does seem to be a problem after some time they tend to change to a greenish color. mine changed almost immediately but others are luckier and it takes a few months

Have you had any issues with the RAM? Building a 2600 and am deciding between 3200 and 3000 (ready to gouge my eyes out)

  • 5 months ago
  • 2 points

Ugh huge problems. Couldnt get the PC to stay booted longer than 10 Minutes without crashing... In the end it turned out that using the exact slots the MOBO guide tells you to and using the built in XMP profile is all you need. So yeah go ahead with 3200 no worries just make sure you read the manuals! :)

wow people actually bought this card? doesnt it outperform the rx 580 by like 5 fps? so $40 to $60 more for 5 fps, well done amd.

Actually you couldn't find any Sapphire blue Rx580s in my country any more And the price of the blue rx590 was like 5 dollars more so yeah well done retailers
