Sweet build and ultra sweet cable management. I just ordered this case and I'm gonna put my 8600k, 1070 strix and kraken X52 build in it. Gonna be tight...

Nice build! I've been wondering is there any way to fit a 3.5" drive there in the ODD slot?

Have you considered trying the rad as intake? It might lower your CPU temps quite alot without acceting the GPU too much. Worth a try at least.

What kind of CPU temps do you get? I'm considering this case with quite a similar setup. Delidded 4770k 4.5GHz 1.27v and an NZXT kraken X52. I would have to also mount the fans to pull and exhaust cause of my GPU lenght. How much is there room between the fans and the front panel?

Bet it would but I never really look at the mobo so close to notice the difference. As for the AIO, I wanted to use plasti dip in case I need to RMA it. Hmm, maybe I should post my new build here as well...

Yeah, got the 1060 6GB at the moment. I think I'll stick with that at least until vega.

How much clearance is there between the GPU and the side panel? I have this case and thinking about getting this GPU but how close do the power cables come to the side panel window? Edit: I see that you got some special slim fit adapters for the power cable. I think I'll pass this one up although it's an awesome GPU.

It's built over time upgrading one piece at a time. Check out my previous builds and u get the idea. Bought the nano before GTX 1060 was released although the nano mostly beats 980 at 1440p. Had a GTX 970 before that. I also got that freesync display so AMD is good. Besides I paid 399€ for the card so excluding VAT thats $360. At that time GTX 980 was 500€ new and 980 ti almost 700€ so not a bad deal IMO. Another thing is that AMD kicks *** in DX12 games.

How's that? R9 nano is one a year old card that can easily run games at 1440p (though I bought it about six months ago) and the 4770k isn't really any slower than 6700k especially OC'd. I'll upgrade the GPU when it can't run games at 1440p 60fps.

I ordered it with the case from mindfactory.de. It's just a basic USB3 case from fantec.

It's really not that great of a fan for a heatsink cause it's optimised for airflow and I don't think it would have a big effect anyways. Maybe a couple of degrees at most. The 70 degrees the maximum anyways and usually while gaming it stays between 50 and 60

70 degrees for an overclocked CPU too hot? Not in my opinion. I usually run the fan <1000rpm cause it's cool enough.

They probably want you to buy a New card if the warranty has gone. Although it's usually pretty easy to attach a couple of fans to the original heatsink with zip ties or something

I found a 4-pin to GPU 4-pin adapter. I thought about tucking the cable but the fan cable is pretty long and it's between the GPU and the mobo anyway so I don't mind

**** that U3 is expensive there :0 Paid 70€ for mine (from Germany) although it's sold under cooltek brand. It's a great case but not easy to build tidy unless you have experience. You can check out my build for some hints and ask me if you need to :) One thing that will make the build easier is if you don't need extra expansion slot, buy an mITX mobo so it's easier to fit in. You don't need a low profile cooler for this case cause it fits like 170mm tall ones. Just look out for the PCIe slot clearance.

If you like the node 202 you check out silverstone RVZ02 and ML08 as well.

My cousin has an intel stock cooler without the heatsink hanging on his desk lamp to clear the vapors from his screen :D If you have your PC on the desk, it could suck in the moisture but don't think that's going to be enough to short circuit it or anything.

Good job! If the GPU continues to run too hot you actually fit a 120mm fan in the bottom if you haven't already. +1

Theres actually plenty of room for a tall tower especially if you don't use the side HDD bracket. Mine has a 155mm tall coolink corator ds but i've seen some builds with a thermalright hr-02 macho.

Hi, there are some ventilation holes in the bottom although they are quite restrictive and the bottom isn't really meant for a fan. Here's a picture of bottom ventilation from SPCR's review: http://www.silentpcreview.com/files/images/rosewill-legacy-u3/06.jpg I also put a demciflex round 120mm dust filter there so it's not sucking everything in. Of course if you want superb airflow you can always cut some of the bottom away if you got the tools and skills.

In practice my GPU doesn't run that much hotter or louder than in my previous case (Fractal Arc mini) so it's fine. The GTX970 doesn't produce that much heat heat so it's a great card for this case. I think you're ok with a powerful GPU as long as you don't mount a 3.5" HDD in the bottom and of course the size of the case somewhat restricts you from using the most high-end GPUs.

Hi, sorry for the delay :D Unfortunately I no longer have this case. Fractal says the max is 165mm but my best is that 166mm would fit. The specs usually have some wiggle room.

You can really make almost any case silent as long as the parts are silent but you can't make a really silent build with noisy parts no matter what case you have.

Well that depends mostly on the fans and components used. At 7V the stock fans of the case are pretty quiet but of course at load some other components might make some noise which it doesn't really silence because of the open structure.

Yeah I know but pretty close nowadays. Besides, finnish prices include VAT. Isn't it added on top of the prices over there?

Comment reply on Laquel's Completed Build: TUF got smaller

  • 56 months ago

Definitely yeah. The Z97 Gryphon with armor is 190€ currently here. The prices have gone up since € has weakened compared to $ and there's 24% VAT. So the most basic Z97 mobos usually start around 80€ and didn't want one of those. I think they were just emptying old Z87 stocks and that's why it was so cheap. E: I checked the Z97 MAXIMUS VII GENE is $203.99 in the cheapest american store and 205,90€ in the cheapest finnish store so I guess the difference isn't that big if you don't count in discounts.

Thank you! There are 2 SSD mounts on the bottom. 1 in the back and 1 where the fan is. I just velcroed the crucial on top of the Samsung.

The Airflow is decent and the temps aren't any worse than in the fractal arc mini I had before. Noise isn't bad as the fans don't spin too fast. I also got a demciflex magnetic filter for the the bottom intake because it includes this magnetic sticker and aluminum isn't magnetic.

I wanted a decent overclocking motherboard and for 109€ this was a real bargain. The price tag on the box still said 160€. I also came with a 5 year warranty and z97 would't have really offered any benefits compared to this. For the same price I could have a bought a cheapo z97 only.

Oh and one thing I forgot to mention is that I would maybe now consider putting in the PSU after the motherboard. Just put those pcie sata etc there beforehand. It would have given some space to wiggle in the mobo.

Yeah I can upload some more later on. Most of the cables you can't see are behind the motherboard so I can't really take any photos besides the ones that I've got already. You can't remove the other side panel but fortunately the motherboard standoffs are pretty tall.
