Description

Built for light video editing and gaming. I absolutely love the H100i in Push Pull Configuration. This is the 3rd PC I've ever built. The color scheme of this build is black and red. Most of the pictures are outdated because I keep adding on to this system. My two GTX 970s are running a QNIX QX2710 overclocked to 100Hz.

LOVE the case. Are some parts older? Also, Bitfenix Spectre Pro LEDs are very quiet, and push a lot of air. They also look sick :D

Nice build. However why the i7-2600k? old part? Aside from that this is a good build in a cool case. btw do you work for corsair or something?

I've decided to move this part over from my old build. I didn't find any reason to upgrade to Haswell or Ivy Bridge. Just didn't need any of there features.

That is one funky case. I like it ;). Why'd you get that CPU though?

It was from my previous build (The MB died on me.), I've decided to say with my i7-2600k. I didn't really need any of new features of Ivy Bridge and Haswell.

Well, I planned on having the first Air 540 case build on here, but I guess you beat me to it. Good build all in all.

Thanks,I have major problem with this case. With my Motherboard the front panel connector is in the bottom center of the board. I just barely got the pins to reach it.

Just got done seeing that case over on Linus' channel. I really want one now.

How quite is the H100i w/ those fans in push/pull? My H100i seems loud.

And are the stock case fans 140mm?

The H100i fans are very quiet at idle. The stock case fans are loud in my opinion. I'm definitely going to get them replaced with quieter fans.

Thats a really bulky case, looks nice anyway. Good work tho CORSAIR <3. Almost Perfect corsair build BUT WHY NO CORSAIR RAM!?!?!11!!?! :(

I'm saving up for Corsair's RAM. So close to a complete Corsair build. Unless they start making mother boards, lol.

I really like the build. Nice job and that case is sweet. I like that you have the 4gb version of the 670. How is that EVGA performing for you? I think with the Z77 chipset you might be better served with an IVY Bridge CPU (3770/K). But I'm quite jealous at the moment.

The 670's is preforming very well for the price point. This card is very good for 1080p gaming and having extra monitors on the side. Later on I might want to upgrade if I decide to get a 2560x1440 monitor. I kept the Sandy Bridge CPU because I don't need any of the newer features on the later CPUs.

Very nice build. Call me blind, but where is the psu? I've been looking on these photos and can't find it. I did go to the link and saw the frame where it would go. Is it behind the mobo?

Just saw LinusTechTips overview of that case

I saw that to. By time he released that video I already had the PC built.

Great Build other than the CPU, why the 2600K? Love that case :D

  • 77 months ago
  • 1 point

I kept the 2600k because I didn't need any of the new features. Plus I was in a hurry to get it running. In my previous build the motherboard died on me.

Fair enough, no point buying a new CPU just yet. Since you already had it that was the best way to go.

There is actually a spot for the PSU behind the motherboard.

I would like to know how you managed to get your hands on that case so early? It isnt supposed to be released until the end of July, unless you were given a review unit.

  • 77 months ago

I ordered the case from Corsair's website. I live in the US so maybe the release dates are different.

  • 77 months ago

I live in the U.S. too, and it lists the release date as 7/31 on Newegg. I did find it on their site though, where it says it is out of stock. I would be willing to say that you got pretty lucky when you were able to pick it up like that. It's such a nice case.

For better choice , you should use GTX 770 not GTX 670 because you can find some brands of 770 at the same price or a little-bit higher

Eventually I plan to upgrade to better card because I'm thinking of getting a 2560x1440 monitor.

Thats a really nice build. Planning on using that case for my new build.

Just wondering but.. Why did you go with Quiet Editions over High Performance? You can just turn down the High Performance...

  • 76 months ago

I looked at some benchmarks between the two types of fans when I bought the parts. The thermal difference was about 18% (7.1C). Acoustic difference was 23% (6.9dB). Now I have 7x 120mm fans and 1x 140mm fan. If they were all high performance fans it would be very loud at idle. Plus the H100i fan controller would only support 4 fans. Honestly whichever fan you choose you're going to get good quality.

Thanks for the obscene amount of pictures of this build! It's one of my favorite builds.

how good is this case? I am thinking of building gaming rig after xmas with this Case

I've had no major issues since I've bought it. It can get loud if you install fans in every available spot. Probably the most deterring factor is the fact that it can only support two hard drives. This doesn't affect me since I have a server which holds most of my data. Overall it’s a well-designed case that easily show your all your parts, minus the PSU.

If he says he's video editing then he will need that for recording and rendering if that's what he is doing
