"Hey, I heard you're building a PC. How much are you gonna spend on it?"

"Well, I've been thinking. At first, I was thinking of 3 grand. But Nah I'm gonna hit it with 5 grand."

(Sweet build BTW +1)

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Haha! I laughed more than I should. Thanks!

Looks awesome! And it was only like 5 grand xD

"only" lmao

Amazing and clean setup... I love the combo of that case and the fans... also good choice on the speakers +1

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Thank you!!! :D I love it too!

Battlepants00 2 points 4 months ago

hey what are your gpu and cpu temps I have the same cpu and case and fan orientation which btw look so much better than having the fans up top as outtake. I was just wondering what the temps were. thx, and I love the build.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 0 points 4 months ago

GPU stays as low as low 40s. CPU stays as low as mid 30s. Pretty average I think. Thanksss!

Looks great man. I'm getting the same motherboard. Do you think 140mm fans will fit on the bottom?

Trobes06 2 points 3 months ago

This an amazing looking case but it gets very tight on the bottom with the cords next to 120mm fans! I ended up having to notch out the case under the motherboard and add two 90 degree adapters to get the USB 3 cable to fit on an MSI MATX B450 Mortar motherboard. 140mm will likely have even more issues. Not insurmountable but I'd plan on some time working out cable routing with this case. BTW, great build thedannyshin.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

It should. :)

McDoogie 3 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

Perfect! I can't wait to build in this case!

SteelDragon2002 2 points 4 months ago

How's the overclocking on that board

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Haven't tried, but I'm expecting somewhere near 5 gHz.

inanis-x 2 points 4 months ago

Hi, looks great! I would like to ask where you got your desk though. IKEA/BestBuy?

12 gb of vram, I'll be drooling at 11

Why the titan V? If you get good performance, then it’s all good but I’ve never seen if it’s good fir gaming or not. Regardless, +1 +1 +1

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Honestly, Titan V works really good with games. NVIDIA doesn't want to advertise that because the price to performance ratio is ridiculous compared to a much more reasonable GTX and RTX series cards. I can run almost all games at the highest settings and easily get 100+ fps. Not to mention this card scored just shy of 5,000 on Heaven Benchmark :)

BenTheAryan 2 points 3 months ago

Ok cool, good to know, thanks!

WillJonathan 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Nice Build!

Question - I was thinking of mounting a 115i Platinum RGB on the top of the case. With this motherboard, do you think a 280mm radiator with 140mm fans would fit, or will only a 100i fit?

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Corsair says the case will fit up to 6 120 mm fans. There are extra mounting holes at the top so it might fit a 280 mm radiator. I can't guarantee tho because I haven't tried it.

WillJonathan 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Gotcha, thanks!

One last question - Are you happy with your temps in this case? I don't plan on doing any over-clocking or anything, but my concerns with the case being so compact are that the temps might be higher than comfortable. Thoughts?

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

CPU temperature stay around 35-38C under modest web browsing. GPU stays 50C (at no load) which is normal for Titan V. Under load, it goes to about 83C.

thndrmatt 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I just built this case up with a 115i Platinum RGB in the top no problem. Box manual actually states you could put a 280mm in the top, front, or bottom, but the bottom seems near impossible with the previously mentioned mobo cabling on a micro size and any modern sized graphics card.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

It might work with a miniITX board? But personally I dont like having a smaller motherboard than what the case was meant for. I would just use 120mm fans. :)

thrty8street 2 points 2 months ago

How do you like your motherboard? Also, what type of headphone dock is that (where did you get it)? Thanks!!

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

It's a good motherboard. Support WiFi AC, comes with WiFi antennas, has 1 USB C, and the software is pretty good. Headphone hanger is by Elevation Lab called The Anchor. Highly rated on Amazon. Hope that helps :)

thrty8street 2 points 2 months ago

It does, thank you! Also, how is the audio quality on your motherboard? I'm really stuck deciding between your motherboard or the ASUS ROG z370-G (m-atx) for my build.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I rarely use my headphones. And my speakers have a built in amp. And I don't think you'll see much difference between the two motherboards. If you really care about audio quality, I highly recommend buying a DAC rather than using the on board audio.

thrty8street 2 points 2 months ago

Thanks for your help!

Bengemon825 2 points 2 months ago

Love the glow that the bottom fans put on the titan

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Yeah, sadly Titan V doesn't have RGB lighting. But the RGB fans make up for it. :)

PotatoPCwithi9 2 points 2 months ago

Literally the titan V cost more then double all your parts put together XD. Nice build btw! +1

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Haha yup! :D

omnikron702 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Nice setup can you tell what montior arm that is and what speakers you are using Im using the jbl slr305 and they sound great but take up alot room on my desk next to my alienware 34.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

Monitor arm is by Mount it. Bought it from Amazon. Speakers are AudioEngine A5+. Amazing rich sound, but they are not cheap.

omnikron702 2 Builds 2 points 2 months ago

Thank you gonna look them up

omnikron702 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Thank you just got the arm in today

RMuzzy 2 points 2 months ago

What speakers are you using? I've been looking for a nice white pair for my new build and I'm loving the aesthetics of yours.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

AudioEngine A5+. Very nice speakers but it’s not cheap. If you are simply after aesthetics, I would look elsewhere.

Vinyl_Scratch_ 2 points 2 months ago

All the RGB ;-;

On another note, how are you hanging that monitor up? Looks sweet

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Its not hanging. It uses a monitor arm. Dell's monitor arms are too big and clunky.

Vinyl_Scratch_ 1 point 2 months ago

What arm is it then? Can't say I've seen it

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

It’s by mount it from amazon

Yo! its jeff from fb! +1

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Hey!! Thanks for the support! :D

cgbuckeye08 1 point 3 months ago

Hey man! I had a question for you. I'm thinking about using this case for a build. I was curious about airflow. Are you pulling air from the top and side and pushing out the bottom? I just want to make sure I get it right Thanks! Awesome looking build by the way. Well done!

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

My fan setup is a bit controversial because I focused on aesthetics more than the performance. I'm pulling air in from the top and front. Exhausting air out the bottom. People say it honestly doesn't make a big difference. My temperatures are perfectly fine too. Hope that helps.

cgbuckeye08 1 point 3 months ago

It does! Thanks man!

xXEpicGamer69Xx 1 point 2 months ago

You could have way better temps if you put the fans on the bottom as intakes and the top as exhaust, since heat rises, you know, and the blower card is a bad idea just in general lol like the titan branding is basically bs because you could get a 2080ti for less and have way better performance plus temperatures.

TacoBoi_22 1 point 2 months ago

Why did you not go with the i9-9900K? Same Socket too.

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

No real good reason...I'll upgrade to 9900k later.

xXEpicGamer69Xx 1 point 2 months ago

But in all honesty you shouldn’t have bought a $3500 graphics card that performs under the 2080 ti that idles at 50°c and “83°c” under load and is about $2000 more expensive

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Got this Titan V for a really good deal. It would be very illogical to pass up.

Keyboardcheetos 1 point 1 month ago

im surprised you didnt go for one of the star wars edition titan xps

thedannyshin submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

That would've been cool! :D

xXEpicGamer69Xx 0 points 2 months ago

uwu owo rgb make my build pretty yes my GPU is at 50°c at ambient but yea look at the lights not my horrible airflow or my 83°c under load lookin graphics card
