Description

This is my backup pc that I use when my main pc is being upgraded/maintained. I've been building a lot of water-cool/liquid-cool pc's with RGB lights recently but this time I wanted to build a simple air cooled pc with no crazy RGB lighting.

I've used some 140mm noctua fans before and I loved how quiet they ran and I really wanted to build a full chromax themed pc since they released chromax line-up.

Noctua fans move so much air while keeping acoustics low and nice, the end result is a very quiet pc that runs as cool as some liquid-cooled computers.

Hope you guys like it. Thanks.

Yea I love white cases. I still have 2 more white cases sitting around that I will build systems in the future.

Meshify C + noctua cooler/fan setup seems to be very popular on PCPP. :)

Wow, really nice build, congrats. I think I'll build the same system but instead of the i7 I'll go with the Ryzen 7 2700X. How is the Memory clearance? No height issue between the Noctua cooler and the Tempered glass? Congrats again!

I had to use corsair vengeance lpx rams which are low profile type rams because of height clearance. You could raise the fans on nh-d15 if you have taller ram sticks but since there is not much room (I'd say there's about 10mm or so clearance) between the cooler and tempered glass I'd stay with low-profile ram sticks such as vengeance lpx.

thank for the tips, I think I'll go with LPX Memory as I thought, cheers!

I have the same case with 3 120's in the front, how did you go about cutting the pop out shroud so you could still have it installed with the bottom fan in place? Dremel?

Yeah, I used dremel to cut it out.

Amazing build, just like all your other ones! Thankfully there's no more cutting required with Noctua's new Chromax black swap slim 120s https://noctua.at/en/nf-a12x15-pwm-chromax-black-swap.html

Wow, thanks man. I turned off all of other lights except that red led and I was getting annoyed TBH. haha

I'm going to try and do this exact build. But is it possible for you to mount the front fan on your noctua cpu cooler behind the second fin stack for a pull/pull configuration? I'm only asking because I want to do this but still be able to see my RGB ram.

  • 13 months ago

Yeah that's possible.

Really nice build! I'm currently trying to decide between two builds; the NZXT H500 case with AIO cooling on the CPU, or the Meshify C case with a Noctua CPU cooler and case fans like you. I was worried that the Meshify C case would be loud due to the front mesh, but it sounds like that is not a problem.

This cooler is far better but more expensive and I don't think noise would be a problem

Really digging your build and I hope you don't mind, I'm copying the parts used on this. Though mine will be using ryzen cpu.

Can you close glass cover with Noctua white radiator covers?

yes, it barely clears the glass side panel but it closes just fine.
