Description

  • i5 is delidded and OC'd to 4.6 on all cores
  • Ergotron LX Monitor Arms
  • Desk is IKEA Galant (Corner Right), with IKEA Lack Shelf on Capita 8" Legs and IKEA Dioder Multicolor LED Strips for lighting
  • Corsair H100 and GTX 780 on it's way
  • Monitors will be replaced soon

Funny thing happened with the H440. I had everything plugged in and powered it on, one of the fans wasn't spinning. Pulled out my mutimeter to test the case fan hub, it was fine. Long story short, one of the HDD rubber grommets came off in the packaging, stuck to the inside of the fan blade, and caused it not to spin. All works now. Great case! Love the cable management!

It is an IKEA Galant Corner Right with an extension. The shelf is an IKEA Lack with 8" Capita Legs. The smaller shelf is the IKEA Galant Shelf.

Ahhh no wonder. I am glad though. I am debating on this case. Pretty sexy if you ask me.

Aww lucky, when I pre-ordered mine they were out of stock (red and black one). Not knowing when they will be back in stock I canceled the order and went with something different :(

Everything is wired, even the mouse. The mouse is capable of being wireless, but I leave the cord plugged in while I use it. Same with my headphones, unless I'm moving around. LAN is wired too, running to other things throughout the house via CAT 6.

Nice build! +1 from me. Make sure to update pics when you get your 780 and H100 in there. It's going to look even better!

although i may be in the minority one this one, i dont care for the case. the lack of 5.25 bays kills it for me

Can you post temps? I love the plate above the PSU but I am wondering if I got that case and used water cooling and the radiator replaces the rear or top case fan would it still have some airflow?

Unnnfff I've been LUSTING for that case, seriously considering redoing my entire (WIP) build for the white h440.

And the whole setup looks so clean and work-conducive!

How is H440 for intake in the front? I might go with it for a build in the future.

Nice job with everything by the way! Really nice set up.

What do you mean when you say the i5 is delidded? Great build +1

Permalink 12 months ago

Pretty sure he means it's unlocked. Like a delidded jar? I guess idk lol.

Permalink 12 months ago

a delidded processor means taking the copper metal on the top off and clean the thermal paste off of it, and put your own thermal paste for better temps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ppql7sTmQIc

Oh, thanks for the information.

Does the cooler come with thermal compound or do you have to apply it yourself? I am a novice and would prefer to not have to do it myself.

Nice build. You should pick up a sound card or something to fill that extra space though xD

GG. wait for your chip to die. That thermal compound is a bad idea, especially on a delidded cpu. After a year or so, it will set and temperatures will skyrocket. Good luck taking it off without ripping the die off the cpu.

And I'll buy a new one. I know the risk, and am familiar with voiding warranties, but thanks.
