Description

I've been working on my own PC for quite some time now and finally think I have built my own personal GOAT (greatest of all time)..

My desk is the MALM series from IKEA. It's a great, standard black desk. It has some shelving on the right or left depending on how you want to assemble it. Figured I might add that in - seen people ask before.

The Ram is over clocked slightly, CPU is on 4.2 turbo and GPU is at 1898 - 1924 mhz on turbo (fluctuates but mainly sits at 1898). That being said my temps are very good. GPU hits 70 Celsius max at 99% load and CPU is at around 45 Celsius during stress.

Anyway, I don't have some huge script prepared and really I'm just hoping to get some feedback on my build. If anyone has any questions or w.e, feel free to ask.

  • Witcher 3 MSI afterburner shot and DOOM in-game monitoring software shot...

I know that my images in-game are crap.. I've been trying to find a better way to get screenshots. MSI afterburner and windows 10 aren't working so I just used my phone. RELAX.

CTRL + Printscreen = Screenshot

+1 Was really looking into that case

I tried with no luck. It shows that my cpu usage changes as I take the screen shot so it is doing something. Simply can't find it afterword. Thanks though

I would set up those cpu fans in an exhaust config.

Why is that?

because there is no dust filter on that fan mount.

Decent idea but I prefer the cooler temp. I'll try and see if I can install one.

doesnt make a huge difference, basically ocd

Typically since heat rises and its best to go with physics in the cause of thermals versus trying to fight it, the exhaust fans on the top and rear of the case are meant to exhaust rising hot air as opposed to trying to bring in cool air that will mix with the ambient temperature air currently in the case. And as Stereotypical_Whale stated there isnt a filter, youd be pulling in dust along with mixing air. Still a very good build.

Lol well, I've done this many times in the past and from my experience I've seen temp on the cpu drop 5-10c just from flipping it. Blowing cold air through the radiator is much better. But also, ideally I should use a dust filter infront of it. But again in my experience, I haven't seen anymore dust fill inside the pc than would otherwise. Last build had a similar system and I didn't see more dust build up at all. Lasted about 1.5 year and 0.8 ish of that was exhaust set up

To each their own. I can see the benefits of each situation but its just a config Im not a fan of. Possible pun intended?

What you need now is a rear fan filter.

I need a 120mm intake at the bottom and ya I guess I could throw one of those on

You can also remove the top hard drive cages to increase your airflow.

Oh something I should add, I moved my rear fan above the cpu and added 2x 140mm corsair red led fans to the top if people are wondering why there is only one in that picture.

Dude, the tubing from your radiator is pushing down on your video card and causing stress on the PCIe bracket... That pressure on it can ruin either your card or your mobo... or both! Just FYI. I would move it to the front as an intake, or flip it 180 degrees so the tubing comes from the top, rather than the bottom.

It's been awhile since I've checked this site I know, but I actually checked that when I was building it and there is about .5 inch of clearance.. Even now I just checked and it hasn't been close to touching it since I put it together. Thanks for the concern.

Incredibly. That's the point. Attention grabbing. Clearly worked as you were forced to post even in disgust.
