Description

Yh i don't know what to title it haha,

Wanted to try AMD out this time around for my build, the stars aligned and Ryzen 2nd Gen dropped just as i was ready.

Loved every bit of this build. The case was awesome to build in. So many options for layout and a surprising amount of space inside.

Cablemod Pro cables are very well made and i initially thought i was going to have trouble routing them how i wanted because they are quite stiff but it turned out very well also.

As for the rest of the hardware, i'm still learning my way around Ryzen and finding a nice fan curve for the S36. The ML fans are awesome though, no motor noise at all so far. Also my first EVGA card! very very well made and performs just like all the other 1080 ti's i assume.

Thanks for looking :).

under realbench, it didnt go over 55c for me. Idles about 25-30c depending on ambient in my room.

Overclocked or no?

Its all stock but the CH7 has all the core enhancement turned on so it pushes it a bit extra. From what i've read so far, theres not much headroom in these chips anyway. I probably will have a tinker when i have a few free hours.

Great! Endless BIOS options, seems stable in my setup. Lighting not to overkill either which is nice.

I like this build in my favorite case, but I may go with the meshify C instead. Did you choose the Celsius S36 CPU cooler because it is easier to integrate into this case or for another reason say over standard included air cooler of Kraken cooler?

Sorry for the late reply.

I also considered the Meshify C but with the length of my GPU it would have been a little tight with a front mounted rad.

I purchased the S36 for 2 reasons really, one was Simplicity. integrated fan hub on the rad, one cable coming from the pump straight into the CPU fan header, job done! not a spaghetti mess of different cables coming from the pump. Other reason was its looks (or lack of), i've had my share of corsair AIO's and built a couple PC's with Krakens and while they are very nice in their design with LEDs etc i kinda liked the S36 simple, goes with everything look. and while the Ryzen cooler is more than up to the job of keeping these CPU's cool, its just stuck in my head from years of intel to buy aftermarket and i budget for it now.

Hey, I was looking at the same motherboard and case but wasn't clear on whether or not the motherboard had USB 3.0 headers for the front panel. Does it? Are you able to use the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on the front of the case? Thanks! Great looking build, btw.

Yes it has USB 3.0 header located along the bottom of the motherboard. I intentionally didn’t connect mine as its an absurdly large and awkward connector that jus ruins the overall look in my eyes. Plus theres so much USB connectivity on the the back, it didn’t bother me. Thanks.

Eyeing using this case/mobo/aio for my upcoming build.

Do you know if there is adequate clearance to mount the s36 on the top of the case vs. the front?

Damn cable management goals. Would you recommend the FTW3?

I feel like with the market as it is now, if you think its not worth it then its only gonna hurt when the prices do drop or new cards come out cheaper. I'm not sure that makes sense but yeah lol. I paid over the odds and i know i did and i accepted it when i ordered it. Its what i wanted to get so there it is haha.

I'm using it to improve my setup for ultra wide monitor and get better performance (not done to much gaming as of yet, you know how it is, you spend the first 2 days setting up and in the BIOS pressing all the buttons).
