It's great except for it can't be overclocked, even with the hacks and stuff.

About $130 to build it and took half a day with the paint and everything. which includes the pipes,melamine desktop, IKEA legs,degreaser and Rustoleum Spray paint for pipes.I had to degrease pipes using simple degreaser from autozone and then paint it. The gas pipes,flanges for feet, and tee's were the biggest expense bought from Home Depot, but you may be able to find them cheaper or as used parts from a plumber.Home Depot even gave free cuts for the tabletop so just know what measurements,height,etc you want. I used this as a reference and modified it by not using bottom shelf and I moved the cross member support: https://imgur.com/gallery/Omh7V

Thanks, that's next on my list and some sort of rounded passing for the edge.

Are you running the 2 stock fans (rear and top) off the PSU or MOBO? Mine are 3 pin(not PWM) and I can't control the speed and they're 100% off my PSU

I think you' d be fine with 2X4Gb on the memory. Fans are good but if you're not on a strict budget, I would get quiet edition, silent wings, or some noctua fans PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

39-44 on idle on GPU and up to 68 under load, but I'm running my stock rear and top exhaust right now. Putting in two 140's front intake tmrw which should help. I think stock fans are fine if you're not overclocking, but recommend some sort of intake, which the s340 doesn't have stock.

Way underrated, but i think for the price it's the best. Love the look too.

Thanks, I read lots of builds and posts. Probably could have gone 6500, but no regrets so far.

Yes, I'm upgrading sooner rather than later so I figured why not. Thanks dude!

Forum Topic "NZXT S340 fans to mobo or to Molex?"

jawash22 1 Build 1 point 38 months ago

I can't control my fan speed using mobo as they are 3 pin and not pwm fans. I'm using the msi z170a pc mate mobo and thought I could at least control them through voltage but no luck.

I'm just finishing my build with same gpu and cpu, but I got the cryorig h7 cpu cooler just because of looks and better cooling than stock cooler. I used the NZXT s340 case and have 1 intake fan in front and 1 exhaust in rear. I left my top fan mount opening clear so heat can escape above. It's my first build and i'm nervous...lol. I just want 60-80 fps 1080p, although I could have gone 1440p. 2-3 years from now i'm upgrading cpu and overclocking. Glad everything worked out for you as I don't see many i56400 builds.
