Description

I LOVE this case. Anyone can build a clean, clutter free system easily, it is almost cheating how professional it looks! I did make a custom board at the bottom to cover the ugly looking drive bay holders.

I would have preferred to have had GPU's with backplates, but when NVIDIA release their "PASCAL" line, I will update to an SLI config with those next year.

The Deepcool RGB lighting REALLY makes it look great, you can change between any colour you want, and match the colour with your other accessories.

I installed the Phanteks 140mm fans, 2xMP for the radiator, and 3xSP for case ventilation. Was it needed? No. I was chasing a lower DB level, but would stick with the corsair generic fans next time on a fan controller.

That'll do the job, but just curious, what's the job? I assume some pretty sweet gaming at high framerates above 1080p. What sort of monitor do you have?

The title says "Craig's 4K Gaming Rig"

My monitor is that sweet *** 40 inch Philips 4K job. I just upgraded from that 28" Samsung. I really need to check the model numbers of them properly, but you may very well know them. Yes, I am gaming my butt off on this setup!

Very nice! The endgame plan with my build is 4k gaming but I'm not sure if I'll reach it satisfactorily with only dual 980s. I might have to settle for something a little less intensive. G-sync 4k might be the silver bullet though.

I would agree with this, except for myself because I struggle with it every time. The goal to aim for this is a lovely one. :)

Also, pretty please to see more photos? I like your build, a lot. +1

Hey, no worries! You gotta keep those cables out of the way for your components to breathe and to keep them cool. :)

The 540/240 are beautifully engineered cases. Makes cable management a breeeze! +1

Yes, I agree FULLY. I am planning to build a small lan rig with my old parts in an AIR 240. I cannot recommend these cases enough! :)

Your build looks SO good! You sure did a lot of over clocking on the 4790K!

I had an Old Noctua 120mm Tower Heatsink on it, and even then it was hitting 4.8GHZ EASILY. I can boot at 5GHZ, but thats about all. Overclocking is done because I can, it really serves no major framerate boost honestly, from the 4790k Turbo'ing to 4.4 anyways!

Is it easy to turn off the LED's on the GPU's by the way?

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

There are no LED's on the GPU's. I assume you see reflection for the RGB lighting strips? You can turn them all off if you wish!

Very neat build!

In about a week I am ordering parts for my PC, and I'm building in the black Air 240.

I'm building an X99 system but I still can't decide between a 5960x/5930k and the Titan/G1 980 Ti.

Anyways, my questions are:

How is the monitor? Do you recommend it in terms of quality and overall experience?

What FPS are You getting with 2 980's in 4K?

Are the Gigabyte cards fairly quiet?

Thanks :)

I was REALLY impatient :) and bought standard 980's is why I have them! Needed 60fps in GTA V! and needed it ASAP. I will not ever look at Radeon again, been there, Crossfired that. and yes, when the Pascal line comes out, they will trounce current Titans, and probably cost the same as a 980Ti, so 4GB of VRAM is plenty for this year, especially when DX12 lands with Windows 10 and combines VRAM.
