Description

This is my recently completed build in the excellent Dan A4 case.

The MSI GTX 1080 Ti fit with no issues whatsoever. In fact that was one of the fastest builds I've ever done.

The i7-7700K runs a little hot with the Cryorig C7, so undervolting is worth consideration. The fan on the C7 is also noticeably loud because it's placement falls too low relative to the side panel.

The videocard idles slightly high because the fans don't start up until it hits 60 degrees or so.

Many thanks to Dan for his well run Kickstarter campaign and all the hard work he poured into making this case a reality. It's as close to perfection as I can get.

Did it fit?

Everything fit. The stock cables on the SF600 were a little long though.

please custom order some cables so there's more airflow, I hate to think of the heat that thing is taking because of poor cable management.

otherwise nice build! 10/11

Could you post your CPU temps please? I want to go for a similar build with the same CPU and cooler but I want to know if it keeps it relatively cool for at most medium gaming. Thanks!

Nice build! I was wondering if you have any indication of what the noise levels are like?

It's almost identical to my dream build. I need thunderbolt, so I would be using that, almost legendary, Asrock Fata1ity Z270. Thanks for the pictures, really helps with inspiring others!

Where did you buy the DAN Case?

I purchased the DAN case as an original Kickstarter project backer.

Do you know if it is possible to use m.2 PCIe drives in this case? I believe the slot on my motherboard is on the back, just curious if i'd be able to use it.

Ouch.. that ARMOR card is practically PCB, and in that case? That has to be a cooling nightmare.

Yowch, that 1080 Ti cooler just is NOT enough. You should replace that, it's known to thermal throttle.

You're absolutely right, the MSI Armor 1080ti was woefully bad. I wound up selling it and will be replacing it with something that doesn't throttle.

Quick update: I've decided to take another crack at this build after selling off the 1080ti. Expect updates on a new cooling solution and system layout very soon.

So my question is that if it doesn't have a price on it when you buy it, does that mean you basically get it for free?

I don't understand your question. What's the "it" you're referring to?
