Description

Coming from a 4790k/Z97 system, this is the first time I've dealt with Skylake, and that is one of the motivations why I went with a Skylake built.

Honestly, I'm indifferent to the Skylake, the improvements are minimal. However, the Gaming 7 motherboard by Gigabyte is gorgeous. Also, the mobo's support for 2280 standard M.2 SSDs is one of the main reasons I chose Skylake. Huge downside is that you have to jump through a chain of hoops in order to install Windows 7.

The main focus of this build is the case, which is the most beautiful case I've seen. I have already had experience with the Phanteks Evolv, but the duo sided tempered glass raises the bar even further. It's now equiped with an RGB lighting system that is controlled by a small button on the front IO - which lights up the power button, and a light slit in the front panel. You can also add RGB LED strips to the case.

The biggest downside to the case is that the tempered glass panels are a pain to remove, and obviously the fingerprints that you leave are hard to clean up. The quality of the glass is top notch and downright gorgeous, and if you spend some time cleaning up the cables, the backside can even look stunning! I personally got lazy and didn't do too much management, but I added a NZXT Hue+ to add some lighting to the rear and to help cover up the mess of cable.

I got this case from a friend who does tech reviews. So I quickly threw together some parts lying around for a photo op, and of course, to test the Skylake and Z170 system themselves.

After 2 weeks of using Skylake, I've decided to permanently migrate. The internals of this build will undergo change as I switch out parts gradually.

I stuffed the ssd in the space between the PSU and the HDD cages. Imo, the mounting SSD in the bracket would warrant more cable cluster.

Man, I love Phanteks Enthoo cases. The glass panels make them a lot better also.

The Natural lighting made the first pictures turn out really good. Very sexy build.

The only downside of Phanteks is they don't use the best acrylic. It scratches easier than the Corsair, Thermaltake, NZXT etc. cases that I've built in recently(I honestly don't know why). So to have Glass makes cleaning 10x easier and you don't have to worry about scratches plus it's just sexy. Putting in a custom glass panel into my Luxe definitely made my life much easier.

chris.3488 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Are the cases stock fans any good? Are they loud or do they vibrate?

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

They're surprisingly decent for stock fans, not loud and no noticeable vibration. They move a lot of air too, right now I'm totaly content with them.

Alsteblieft 1 point 20 months ago

I'm gonna buy one extra stock fan and add it to the front. It's also nice that you can connect the fan hub to your motherboard to control them via pmw. That should give me plenty of airflow.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

The front can only support 2x 140mm fans, which is already fully populated out of box.

PureBlackFire 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

phanteks 140 SP are very good fans.

Alsteblieft 1 point 20 months ago

http://www.phanteks.com/PH-F140SP.html They're very low noise and have pretty decent airflow. You can pmw control them via the fan hub if you hook it up to your motherboard.

dax_olesa 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

can't decide what's more beautiful, the build or the photos. thanks for making me crave this case even more >.<

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Thanks! It's a great case; it's very well built, and designed - and only 20 or 30 more than original EVOLV.

I lose myself mindlessly admiring it on daily basis lol...just an awesome case.

dax_olesa 2 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

if i had some crappy case i'd buy it in a heartbeat but from an H440 it's not really worth an upgrade. also the glass backpanel would require me to scrap the sleeved psu extensions and get fully sleeved cables so that would be another hundred bucks on top. guess i'll just mod my case then

Alsteblieft 1 point 20 months ago

I assume only the Phanteks Led strips are compatible with the built in rgb led connectors? Also how many are built in? I've read the adhesive on the strips sucks so I'd rather use CableMod rgb magnetic LED strips. (I'm also gonna buy the rgb adapter to sync the case LED's with my Asus motherboard (don't think NZXT hue+ is compatible with that). Also how's the quality of the RGB led lights itself? I assume it's not RGBW, seeing the led's are having trouble with the whites.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

There are no RGB strips built-in, the only stock parts that light up are A) the power button, and B) the slit in the front panel.

The adhesive based strips are the old kind. The strip I'm using is Phanteks' new magnetic RGB LED strip, it actually has a very firm hold on the case. It has a very high build quality and the brightness is great, but no, it's not RGBW. I don't know how it holds up against cablemod's strips.

I can also confirm that NZXT hue+ is not compatible with the ASUS's aura header nor the case RGB header.

I've swapped out the Gigabyte motherboard since the time of photos and swapped in a ASUS FORMULA VIII, and I've been trying to buy an adapter too. Since the header for the Phanteks RGB magnetic strip is not your standard 5050 RGB LED strip header, and therefore, not natively compatible with the Aura header.

Alsteblieft 1 point 20 months ago

Thanks for the detailed reply. Where did you buy the magnetic ones(phanteks' store, I assume?)? Or do they all come that way now? The widebeam rgb's from cablemod aren't rgbw either, so they should be similar quality. You can get an Asus aura compatible rgb adapter from phanteks on amazon for $7.23 (free shipping).

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

I'm not sure if Phanteks has decided to discountinue the old adhesive strips...

I actually got the LED strip for free along with the case from my friend, lucky me :) so I don't actually know how much the new Phanteks strip will cost...

any way, thanks for the tip about the adapter, I've been itching to see how well all of the LEDs sync.

Alsteblieft 1 point 20 months ago

Apparently the Phanteks' LED's I found on amazon.com are magnetic, so I'll get those. They are gonna cost me $19.99+ $5 import fees to Belgium each (1m). Still cheaper than if I'd buy the 60 and 30cm cablemod ones twice.

chrispdm1 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

So explain the hoops you had to go through to install Windows 7. I'm getting ready to install Windows on an M.2 and am not sure how I should go about it, try to install Windows 7 or bite the bullet and upgrade to Windows 10. I would like to stay with Windows 7, but if its going to be a hassle, then I'll just go with 10.

Other than that, awesome build!! Just beautiful!

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

It's not that Skylake doesn't support Win 7, it does...it just doesn't support the installation of Win 7 lol. IKR, wtf!

So, depending on the type of SSD, installing Win7 can range from difficult...to downright 'I wanna stab Intel for backing Microsoft's Win 10'.

If you have an existing Win 7 system, the best way is to just migrate the entire system to your desired SSD via a data migration software like Samsung Magician. However, the problem with this is that there can various driver/compatibility issues...so whether it works well or not will depend on your luck.

To install fresh copy of Win 7 on your standard SATA SSD's...the easiest way is to have a second PC readily available. Install Win 7 on your desired SSD and then just relocate said SSD to your Skylake build.

However, if you don't have a second PC readily available... then the only way that I know works is to first install a linux system (I personally used Ubuntu). Inside Ubuntu, create a partition, and then install Win 7 on to said Partition. After you successfully installed Win 7, you can go back and remove the Linux system.

I'm by all means a complete noob in Linux, and this is the first time I've dealt with Ubuntu. But there are guides online about how to install Win 7 via Linux if you really want

Also, if you have a M.2 SSD with 2260 or 2280 standard, going through Linux is the only way to install Win 7 as far as I know.

chrispdm1 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

Thank you!! Nice to hear a bit about someone doing it.

Yeah I bought a Samsung 950 PRo M.2 and I reading a wide range of things about installing windows 7, anythig from yeah, just migrate it to the M.2 and it works, but then I hear people say that it doesn't seem like it performs the way it should and doing a fresh install gets it working right. I don't know what to do, but I'm leaning to installing windows 10 and using my retail windows 7 key to upgrade. I think I'll give it a decent effort to install 7 first though, but if it looks like too much hassle, I'll cave to Windows 10.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

I actually recently purchased the 950 Pro myself...I tried to install Win 7 by installing a fresh copy on to a SATA SSD from a Haswell PC, then moving then the SSD to the Skylake PC. My plan was then to migrate the entire SATA SSD onto the 950 PRO. But apparently Win 7 can't detect the M.2 950 PRO. So much for the short cut huh? Didn't work lol.

Although there's one more way that may possibly work, which is getting a M.2 PCIE adapter. I had a Hyperx Predator PCIE M.2 SSD before the 950 pro, and I know for a fact that for the Predator, Win 7 was able to successfully detect the SSD. So maybe getting an adapter could work?

chrispdm1 1 Build 2 points 20 months ago

I actually was able to load windows 7 fairly easily on my 950 Pro last night. I wanted to see what would happen, Windows 7 install disc obviously could not see any hard drives, so I looked how to install the nvme driver for the samsung 950 Pro. I found the driver here: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/3rvoop/samsung_950_pro_nvme_ssd_windows_7_64/ I unzipped it and burnt it to a dvd and used the find driver on the windows install and replaced the windows 7 install disk with my driver disc and then loaded the driver, it showed up after that, I put the Win 7 install disc back in and it loaded fine.

In fact, it worked fine every time I loaded windows 7 last night... I had a driver issue with my motherboard, no usb driver installed on it, so limited mouse and keyboard input, and when I went to update it (so that I could use all the buttons on my mouse and the lock buttons on the keyboard), I would lose any input from either of them in Windows. :( Finally was able to find a driver and sequence to install it so that it would work on the 3rd try...

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Hey thanks for the info,

Your way seems alot more straightforward than going through linux lol, ought to give it a try some time.

boadicea 1 point 20 months ago

props on your new TG model! i got the satin one myself, i like your cable management in the back but i think with your custom cables it may make it easier then using the big bundles with standard psu's. i will certainly have to go back and revisit that for mine.

+1!

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Thanks!

Yes the custom cables definitely makes it infinitely easier. Although honestly, there's still a huge mess in the PSU area which I blocked off with a NZXT Hue lol.

boadicea 1 point 20 months ago

trust me, i know lol. same on mine. i was able to use some cable ties and clean some of the excess psu cables up and i routed them under the 2nd bracket of the HDD area.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

IKR, Finger print is horrible! And it's especially hard to clean since the panel is entirely glass lol

KB_Evolved 5 Builds 2 points 20 months ago

Really, I switched from Phanteks' pretty bad acrylic panel on my Luxe to a custom Glass panel that I installed and cleaning became SOO much easier.

The only downfall of the Phanteks Enthoo line is they have a worse Acrylic panel than most other case companies I've built in recently. I don't know why but it scratches far easier.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

The glass panel has no frame, the black part that you see, is also glass. Because the way the panels are attached, there's no place to place your fingers/hold the panel whiling trying to mount them without getting fingerprints on them.

But yes, I meant to say that it's hard to keep clean - not that it was hard to clean. It's definitely easier without having to worry about scratches.

KB_Evolved 5 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

Yeah, that's how mine is. I just bought some black rubber trim for the edges so I don't cut myself when messing with it. So I guess I have a little area to grab onto but not too much. It's just part of the sacrifice to have a great looking case. It definitely looks better than Acrylic.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

It's very smooth, and the modularity makes the case so fun to work with.

The cables took a long time to tidy up and it was difficult to get a clean look, but in the end it was so rewarding!

This case would be my first pick at the moment. Inwin 909 is great too... but the Phantek Enthoo wins out for my personal preferences.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

No noticeable pump noise at all. During idle, it's barely audible with it standing on my desk. However, it is somewhat noisy when in load, but not particularly louder than any other cases I've had.

GoingMerry 1 point 20 months ago

did you have any issues with installing the PSU on this CASE? i just got this case and completed my build, but there was a ridge on the bottom corner where you install the psu, so there is a gap between the psu and the back of the case. anyone else who has built with this case having the same issue??

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

No, I didn't have that trouble you are experiencing. That's odd...

refused9150 2 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Great build. One quick tip I noticed that I did with mine with the Hue+. The strips actually fit on the front lip of the case shining towards the back. It helps because you cant see the strips and you never catch them in the eyes. Still has the same great color effects too.

FireSeth 1 point 18 months ago

All i can say is the photography is good.

CrimzonSlayeRx 1 point 16 months ago

9ice build.. quick question. why do u have an extra LED strip... is the NZXT hue LED's not sufficient? or what else were they used for

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

Well I got the LED strip for free...it's the new one from phanteks, a lot brighter than the NZXT Hue+ strips, and it's directly connected to the case. It can controlled by the button in the front.

And because the case is windowed on both sides, I used the NZXT hue to light up the back side.

DeNo49 2 Builds 1 point 15 months ago

Lovely build and cable management. Love the 14-24 too lol. I have the same camera and those 2 lenses as well. My question is how did it work installing the Hue+ at the top of the case ? I hear people say it is a pain to do. I am planning on air cooling my build so I don't foresee an issue with the radiator getting in my way.

rmckellar 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

i am planning a build similar to yours. I have a question about the NZXT Hue+ and the Phanteks LED extension. You weren't able to interface the two, correct? I'm assuming the hue and associated LEDs were for one part of the case and the phanteks extension for another?

tschmitt 1 point 11 months ago

What kind of monitors you got with this bad boy?

PiChart 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

These pictures are sharp, and the build is fantastic!

I'm assuming you hooked up the Phanteks strip to the HUE+? How does it work with CAM's lighting profiles and all that?

fabian6uerrero -4 points 20 months ago

r9 390x? seriously? with rx480 coming on june 29 at $200? what were you thinking? regardless of the fact the you had a limitless budget it is stupid to buy a 300 series at that price.

jjkfeng submitter 6 Builds 5 points 20 months ago

This rig was build mid-may, which at that time, AMD hasn't announced any pricing for their new line.

Also, I didn't buy the card specifically for this build, it was just an extra card I had lying around.
