Description

I built this machine mostly for gaming, and that's really what started it, I build more to build now, the games are just on the side. I started with a full loop housed within the hadron air and it was gorgeous, fully looped and hard lined, however I just wanted change like an extra radiator and more 3.5 drives for redundancy, so I moved to the Nano S which was awesome and still love it. Problem with clark 2.0 was I had to downsize my desk for my family... so I wallmounted my internals. It was neat but 3.0 just didn't run me the right way with how I went about trying it out. So after figuring out how to downsize and keep Clark 4.0 on the desk. He's here to stay with that RGB and Tempered Glass Glory! I absolutely LoVE the PC-Q37. Lian Li killed it with this one! Colors are Superman if you couldn't get that from Clark's name lol!

Edit; added a few pictures of my final revisions: these were the plan from the beginning just never had the parts, and couldn't get my pc together in time. Now that Clark has gotten a little bit of dust, I've switched the CPU block to the Evo rather than the mx, changed out my fans to NZXT aer RGBs and also some cooler master slims I cut up for my first ever custom loop housed within the hadron air.

I decided to add my res to the build and switch to the DDC pump so I could house it in the back chamber for sound and also space. Should help on refilling it too!

I think he's referring to the colors of the flag of the Philippines; its similar to your color scheme.

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Oh hahaha thank you for the clarification, even have visted the Philippines before, I would not have known lol

Anyway you could take a pic of the bottom? I would love to see the clearance for the fans. Also, post your temps!

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Okay yes I can do that because I had wondered the same thing and could not find it anywhere and had some cooler master Slim fans ready for in case they didn't. But I do have EK VARDARS at the bottom and they do fit, a bit unconventional but they do work.

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Temps are decent too, a bit warm for me on my CPU- I'm using a Used Supremecy MX i will be upgrading to a brand new Evo to test temps, I just can't choose which one yet, but GPU sits at 45 max load. But I'll get them screen shotted later.

Hi bro, i am building the same rig with custom wc

My parts are: AQC Cuplex Kyros 2 x Hardwarelabs GTS240 EKWB D5 Pump/Res Combo 100mm 2 x Gentle Typhoon 3000RPM 2 x Scythe Kaze Jyuni Slim Fans 2000RPM

Can i check if you have any bottom mounted fans? Did u elevate the case for more airflow when u have bottom mounted fans?

15mm fans will fit with around 10mm clearance.

Petrdolezal 1 point 19 months ago

chinamanch 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

like until you turned on the lights like boom !!!! awesome theme....the chipped fan kinda bothers me but great rig you have here:v

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

haha it REALLY bothers me, im polanning on HD120s from corsair, but i havent fully decided on my replacements

chalupa 1 point 18 months ago

Those fans weren't too large under the case? I'm watercooling my PC-Q37 in the near future and was planning on buying slim fans. How's the cooling??

Also do you have any space between the GPU waterblock and glass panel? I think the 1080 ti waterblock is slightly thicker due to a different terminal.

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

No space between fans and desk, but they fit! Also my glass touches my terminal AT ALL TIMES. But still fits.

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

I reccomend the DDC for the back side of the case if you want to mount a res in the front, my D5 does not fit in the second compartment; also yes standard fans BARELY fit, the even touch but they work actually, but I'm switching to COOLERMASTER's Slim fans idr the names but I enjoyed them on another build of mine

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

jackhammer41730 1 point 12 months ago

Question can the case hold a 240mm radiator? Thinking on using this case for a build

OMGxGage submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Yea, I have two, although only one is officially supported

How warm does your 960evo get, idle and load?
