Description

After 15 years of hardcore PC gaming & general interest in computers, I finally had mustered the courage (and finances) to build my very first gaming PC.

This build is mainly for gaming and school related work, but nothing terribly too demanding. Everything works perfectly well except one thing: The T-Force Delta SSD does not light up like it should. I'm probably not doing it correctly, but I can't seem to pinpoint the problem. I had followed the exact instructions, but to no avail.

Anyway, here we are.

Wow it actually does look like rainbow road haha. Insane build, hope you enjoy it. This must have been so fun to work on

Thanks a bunch! It took terribly long, but definitely fun as heck. Total time took me about 10 hours because I had minimal idea on what I was doing lol

That is a sight right there. It looks like your PC ran into a unicorn and 16 Care Bears.

Great job. And I agree with the past comments about having a PSU shroud. Otherwise this thing is a treat for the eyes.

Dang, this thing is a beast. Love that name too. Seems appropriate with all those RGB fans. :D

While I see what cheitmiller is saying, I really do appreciate your compliment. Thanks a bunch! As a first build, I was super nervous that it'd flop, but fortunately everything seemed to work out perfectly.

Im glad to hear that you like it. Though cheitmiller is kinda right, as I have been on this site for about 3 months and started looking at other people's build only about a month ago

Hey, everyone's gotta start somewhere right? All love bro. I was in the same situation too. I actually had gotten my idea from a few builds on this site. It's a great place to give you a slight overview of the next build you plan on making so make sure to explore!

Sure will! I've only been in the PC masterrace for about a year and a half, so there's still a LOT to learn about one of my favorite hobbies. Good luck with everything in the future and with your stunning PC.

Honestly, the best graphics card for the value on the market in my opinion, especially with the OC 8gb. Definitely get one!

-1 for not using RGB sata cable, i mean comon d00d! What do you have against RGB?

+1 for everything else however, this is a great looking system. How many fans do you have connected?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

Hahaha right? I was considering it, but I didn't want to overkill. I have a total of 8, not including the radiator fans. I wanted to squeeze in another one for the bottom intake because of the intake:exhaust ratio (4:7) but even for now the CPU and GPU temps are very stable (never going over 57c)

I myself whould have gone with a case that has a PSU shroud, but otherwise, nice build!

  • 10 months ago

I was highly considering that as well. To be honest, had I known the PSU RGB was going to be that unnoticeable, I probably would have made that move. :(

T-Force Delta SSD needs V5/V12/USB or 9-pin connection on the motherboard to work the RGB. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820331188 It explains and shows how to connect the RGB.

Thanks for the feedback! I did connect it properly, however the lighting was still not working. Possibly a defect?

  • 10 months ago

Yes that could be the problem. Good luck.

Very nice build but why do you have 3 different storages. Im new to this building stuff and i don't understand why 3 and where do you put all 3.

I originally only wanted two storage units: two m.2 2280 SSDs to give my build a cleaner look. One unit for the OS and important programs and the other unit for games and other files. The only problem I was having was that any m.2 storage with a capacity of 1TB or higher (specifically Samsung models) were extremely pricey. Since I was focusing more on aesthetics and massive (probably overkill) cooling, I didn't want to install a 3.5" HDD especially since they were a lot bulkier and considerably slower. The two m.2 2280's are installed in the motherboard while the SATA is located right beneath my radiator.

Hey, great build! Great job for first. I think I might know what went wrong with your ssd rgb lighting. I had been looking at that same ssd and it uses a 5v rgb connector. I read that a lot of people fried it because their motherboard was a 12v. I couldn't find what voltage your motherboard runs, but it should say on it. Please let me know if that was the problem. Thanks.

Edit: Also the ssd Delta S is a 12v but is only one solid color.

Hey, (sorry a bit late to the party), does that cooler come with pre-applied thermal paste?

  • 8 months ago

Hey! Yes, it does, however I removed the original paste and applied some Grizzly Kryonaut.

I was working on a build and thought if I would need thermal paste for it. Please tell me what you think of it: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Q7NPWD

Hey man! I would definitely recommend Kryonaut Grizzly thermal paste. The 9900k is going to run hotter than my 8700k, but so far I've been overclocking about 37% @5.0ghz and my temperatures under load are somewhere between 40-45

Man, I'd watch this set up in my room and sleep like a kid each night. VERY pleasing to the eyes and beastly specwise as well ;)

How are you liking your graphics card? Looking to pick one up at MicroCenter. I love the build! :)

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

DEFINITELY get one. It is honestly the best video card for it's value right now. Throwing in the extra $30 for aesthetics + fan was definitely worth it. Overclocking is great on this too.

Thanks! I’ll add it to my parts list.

The RGB is shining on some wires down at the bottom. Did you fix the cable management yet?

  • 8 months ago

I've managed to clear away some of it, but unfortunately I couldn't possibly do anymore.

Ur airflow prolly sux

  • 6 months ago
  • 1 point

Airflow is pretty good, actually. Front 3, bottom 1, side AIO all intake. Rear/Top exhaust. All the intake is set default @ 700 rpm and top/rear are set to performance @ 1500 rpm. Thermals: CPU: 32 C MOBO: 30 C PCH: 47 C GPU: 35 C Running at 35% OC @5.0ghz

Curious about this because I recently purchased this case and the same fans and AIO for a similar setup. Did you move the case's original 3 140mm to the top? Or how do you have yours setup? I'll be OC'ing the i9-9900k and want to get my thermals on point.

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry for the delayed response, but yes. I moved all three 140mm's to the top as exhaust and installed a 5-pack of 120mm's with three front, one bottom intake and one rear exhaust. My thermals are pretty great overall, even under load. I'm pretty sure you'll be satisfied with this layout, as the airflow is pretty balanced if you also configure your AIO to intake, if you're going with the same setup.
