INTRODUCTION :

Hey guys ! I'm GImBIS from France.

I wanted to share my gamign rig, which I use for games like :

  • Portal 1 and 2
  • Minecraft (with Shaders, heh !)

... and also for working (graphic design, webmastering).

Actually, I have pretty good parts...

You need fans on a radiator, that's extremely dangerous. You need something to move the hot air away from the rad.

1 years and 5 months it's running like that. The back fan is pulling the hot air inside the case, so the fresh air, on the top comes from the top of the case and so pass by the radiator. + read what I said, I'm going to buy an other AiO. + I know what I'm doing mate.

Alright. As long as your careful, I'm sure you can handle it. My usual thought is using an AIO with fans for cooler temperatures. Fanless is unorthodox to say the least.

Maybe just my OCD coming in for you but the wire cluster at the bottom could be routed to behind the case. Cool beans on the other cable management. And echoing the need for fans on that radiator.

No they can't, too much wires. + read the description please, going on fully modular.

Even car radiators have fans on them, and cars move.

For the glory of satan of course ! Just didn't have time to create the full components list ! :P

Good looking build all and all, I would agree with getting a ran on the radiator like most people but no need to beat a dead horse. I have OCD my self, and the parts list being in the description and not the spot detected to the parts list is bugging me a bit.

+1 for sure for a clean build, but I would look at getting a fan for that rig.

Yeah, agreed. Fans on a radiator are a MUST! You could kill your AIO unit.

An AiO is a pump and a radiator with liquid in it. You CAN'T kill something which is made for high temperatures. The only thing I could ""damage"" is my CPU and maybe you don't know, but a CPU can auto-extinct when the temperature is too high.

  • the max temperature recorded on my CPU was 57°C. While gaming, it's between 35 and 50.

Those are impressive temps, could you put a screenshot of core temp or whatever temp software you use on here?

I still will never recommend a fanless rad, air needs to be sucked into the radiator to cool the liquid.

I bought everything together, and this is my first rig. Sorry, I didn't know there was a mistake of 3mm missing for the fans to fit between the radiator and the MoBo.
