Nice build man +1
Also, I may be wrong but it appears as if those 3 arctic fans are actually setup as intakes contrary to your description :)
OP didn't set prices so it just displays current prices
Don't get me wrong, seeing builds double the price with custom loops are cool and all, but you gotta appreciate really well thought out, balanced and great looking builds like these. +1
Unfortunately this build has since been rebuilt into a different case due to upgrading to a better GPU :(
There are standard mounts for a 3.5inch HDD on the floor of the case only. However if your CPU is 20mm lower then I really doubt it will fit, but it's hard to say.
Beautiful. But I would say that those Corsair AF fans are not up to scratch compared to some 140mm Noctuas (I've used both!). The NF-A14s would move more air at the front due to better static pressure :)
Very nice, but let's see the PC
The desk never used to be that neat xD
For CS:GO, very easily. Overwatch for example, I run with mixed settings at about 150. Really depends on the game. The G sync helps regardless.
It does require an adapter, but it makes cable management so much easier, it meant I could tuck 3 SSDs behind it, and cables to the left of it, also.
The cooler does bits, especially with the second fan, it means you can run them at the lowest RPMs possible. If I'm not mistaken you could probably fit a larger noctua cooler in this case. I believe I've seen a 120mm fan tower cooler before in a similar build!
Dude, considering you used a full atx semi modular PSU, your build is very very neat indeed. I wish I had the patience to cable manage like you did xD
Thank you, I believe I up voted your build in the past! Very clean
A couple of mm? It's not a very fine mesh so wouldn't choke it, if that's what you're concerned about.
It was about £80 from Overclockers. Which is a decent price for an ordinary case and psu anyway, don't think I could have done any better for that choice at the time tbf
Only takes 2 2.5 inch drives! Regarding your question on power draw I would imagine about 50-100 W for everyday use, under full artificial load it is well within the PSU's capability, though I don't think you could get away with much more if you added a second drive.
The whole idea was to build something that would last and be more quiet and reliable :)
Testing using prime95 for about half an hour never saw the cpu go over 60/65°C
Quick question, I don't suppose it's possible to mount the GPU rad/fan in the front (possibly with the pump tubes going under that little res/2.5"drive stand)? I am thinking of getting a hybrid 1070 in the future (when it comes out) with this case and want to minimise fans as much as possible. Thank you in advance. Nice build!
Having the same motherboard myself, and after changing the appropriate settings for the CPU (unlocking it, etc etc) I can't seem to manually overclock my FX-8350 processor on this mobo. Which BIOS are you using? I have given up on trying to overclock it.
Also, really nice build, the case and the sleeved cables look very nice. I really like your whole set up to be honest; the desk with all the rubix cubes are awesome. It looks both practical and good to look at.
