solid. In that price range, it's epic. Especially for a 13yo.
oh man... one bump is all it would take ;)
I learned a long time ago the rebel alliance is cheaper and offers the same (or better if we are talking about Star Wars) performance. All you have to do is not go to the RGB. It will take you to dark places.
They do make some really cool stuff though. And having it all integrated makes things easy on the software side of things too.
But maybe take the "caution" sticker off the glass ;)
You can get the noctua's I have. All noctua's are quiet. Just depends on the RPM you run them at. Now they have chromax ones in black... you don't specifically need the ones you have there. Unless you are testing db's, you won't notice a difference.
It's great, I think we all love it... but there is some serious confusion about your 8600 choice here. For a 2080ti and your choice in resolution, an i7 (or i9 - but keeping it relative to your z370 mobo) would serve you better. Even a locked i7 would be okay, and your temps would be somewhere in the negative degree range lol. I also don't understand the 3440x1440 @ 60Hz... I like the monitor setup and everything else overall is an awesome job, but I would want that beastly resolution to be my main game monitor at have GSync. Cost of that Alienware (Dell) monitor is only a little more monies. Did you get that monitor when the "Alienware" was over $1k? Cuz that wasn't that long ago, and I think the one you have is around $500 now. Hell, when I bought my dell 2560x1080 is was $500. So... not knockin your build here dude... it's great... just some questions about the monitor setup and the 8600. Do you plan on upgrading that 8600? I mean, for your build, that would be an easy task (aside from draining all your liquid).
I love it, but I have to say I don't understand why these cases cost so much and why more manufacturers are not making them, like phanteks, fractal, corsair and such. There is a huge market for them now days but for some reason they still cost so much and the majority of them are from smaller companies. Would be nice to see some affordable cases like the NCase's and yours. Anyways... /rant.
How is the monitor working out for you? Vesa compatible? Any issues with freesync and the 1080ti? I really want to try that monitor for a 2060 super build.

Thanks. That's what I found too. I would prefer something that screws into both ends somehow, but I think it'll be stable enough.
"What is my purpose"
"You make coffee"
"oh" *Subliminal thought occur.
Nice setup and build. +1
Does IKEA sell those risers? I am looking to upgrade my desk with the ALEX drawer units, but need that extra space too.
It's perfect. I love everything about it.
lol. ok. I spent over 3k on my build in 2016. I learned my lesson. You may one day too, ya know... when you get a build and all.
When $700 for a GPU is cheap...
upload when done! so much potential.
Literally the best car ever made. Missing some features tho... Like cup holders.
Looks much better without the bulls of handles on top.
+1 for being creative as fffff
Nice cat stand.
Yea. Usually the fans do not protrude so much in the front of a case and the filter is in front of them. I think it's correct, but that means they manufactured is bassackwards. Still, nice build. Just an odd case.
The dust filter is behind the fans?
I'm still using it. Probably going to be next year until I refresh. I want to wait for the next GPU's and chipsets.
I hope you get featured so everyone can see the pics on your wall. In fact, those alone are worldwide news worthy.
Definitely a leap from your last build. Very nice.
well yes, but there are top and bottom slots to allow some air flow to be pulled. Unless it's a completely open case in the front, there are always restrictions. So at least it does have some air flow. Still does not change the challenged idiot who put them in as exhaust at the factory. I agree. Just wow.
When your apartment is so nice, you can use it as a backdrop.
So jelly, but at least I'm honest. +1
Very cool and very nice build. I'd probably still throw a low budget GPU in to keep the load off the CPU.
How do you control yourself? Even if I had a 5k gross off a build, I would still want to keep it ;)
sharing is caring ;)
I feel like this is an ad. But I like it. +1
Good thing too... it would just hurt the local community ;)
Well, here is the next feature.
I never trust those apps or any auto kind of setting to OC though. Most times, the voltage is too high.
lol... they get a little worked up. Especially the ones without their own builds ;)
C'mon quit playin.
+1. Very clean, well done. Just stick with an air cooler. Simple is better, and a good one will get you the same OC as an AIO.
How do you like the monitor?
feature or we riot.
2080ti or doesn't count ;)
Now do a recent one ;)
Usually, I am concerned about air flow as well, but this case will do just fine with all intake. All exhaust will find it's way through the top because air is being pushed in an upward and towards the rear direction, allowing the "heat naturally rises" theory to be taken into consideration. You'd have to find that balance though, where the fans are not pushing too hard and recirculating most the air. I would just make sure the bottom fans are on double what the front intake are. Honestly, he could probably keep the front intake on minimum speeds and increase the bottom to full rpm under loads, and be fine. Dust though, well, there is no solution to that even in the best air flow cases.
you seriously do not need them with this build. It looks great. Actually, the look with no backplate is kinda sexy in this build.
+1, congrats on the feature.
What works really good for thermal pasting, are those scotts shop towels (mechanic blue paper towels) because they are lint free. Plus, they are just awesome towels.
It certainly held it's own in 2014. If does what you need, then it's perfect. It looks great too.
It's a beautiful setup. Truly impressive. But I think we are all a bit stunned by the lack of power that resolution deserves. What do you use it for? Personally, I think it's great. If you don't game and just browse or HTPC, that set-up is decent. Maybe a 2060 would've been a better route considering it would last longer, but I am still too impressed by the set-up to care about the choice in parts. It's beautiful. I use mine for gaming occasionally, and the games I do play require some power, but my rig is basically the focal point of my bachelor pad and handles everything from cable tv/movies, to browsing and gaming (I truly only play open world games mostly). So I get it. Most may not and knock your for the 1050ti, but if it does what you need and looks that good doing it... who cares what others think ;) You got style... and I am stealing your lamp.
Pretty cool setup/desk area. Could use some cable management though. Hide all those cables and it's going to look a lot cleaner. Also, I second the new PSU. Those ketchup and mustard cables really stand out, and that PSU is far from reliable.
12 pixels of glory.
Just so expensive tho. No reason a GPU should ever cost that much.
Looks great! Do you just use it for a media HTPC and browsing? Youtube? Amazon prime/netflix and such.
I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
+1. Very cool!
Thank you for turning me onto the Ghost S1. I have fallen in love with these minimal cases, and since I am planning a new ITX build I may end up going with one of these cases. Definitely leaning for the Ghost now over the Ncase. Originally planned for a Fractal Define Nano S because I have an ATX Define S and love it, but these cases are so simple, how can you not love them?
Never seen a monitor setup like this before. What do you use the side monitors for?
no might about it. All exhaust will create a dust magnet. plus, the rads need clean cool air to help them cool, not heat from inside the case.
I like it. But...
Is there only exhaust?
