Description

Build Photo Updates coming shortly now ive added corsair h115i cooler and 2 corsair ML140 mag lev fans!

UserBenchmarks: Game 120%, Desk 104%, Work 84% CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K - 108.8% GPU: Nvidia GTX 980 Ti - 143.6% SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - 95.7% HDD: WD WD10EURX 1TB - 70.3% RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 C16 2x8GB - 105.4% MBD: MSI Z170A GAMING M7 (MS-7976)

Been building this now for 2 months, primarily built for gaming at high res! the case itself is a dream to work with, seperating the components from the cables is a massive help for ease and looks! the window really shows off your build well with no messy cables hanging about.

Enabling XMP IN bios ramped up my 3200 ram to use its full potential .

Really is running like a dream this machine ... Everything has gone plain sailing . Running at idle 21 degrees , and 68 under load , still plenty of space for overclocking , but to be honest it's running quality as it is !

Benchmarks run smooth as hell on heaven 4 benchmark, photos show results running on extreme ! With x8 AA

Plays Crysis 3 , everything on VERY HIGH..antialiasing x8 , runs smoothly at 70-90 FPS at 1080 Battlefield 4 everything on ULTRA ..manages this game easy! not even trying :) 150 FPS + at 1080

As from 28/06/2016 overclocked CPU @ 4.5ghz with a v core voltage of 1.280 running smooth on prime95 for 10 hours with no errors , overclocked DRAM voltage to 1.375 seems to stabilised the errors I was having before on prime95 GPU overclocked at 1490mhz with Evga precision X software with a core of +170 and a mem clock of +475 running at stock voltage , stress tested and running smooth !!

Added 3 x HD120 corsair RGB fans 7/01/2017 and its looking sweet, along with an EVGA powerlink and red sleeved cables! and scrapped the Fan controller and all running off PWM now cool as a cucumber!

Why AF instead of SP for front intake ?

Static pressure fans are mainly for radiators and heat sinks ....af are for the case

Gorgeous build! I want to get the white air 540 too, although I'm going to be doing blue fans. Your pics also answer a few questions I had about this case, including whether or not the R1 Universal would be comfortable in it. So thank you very much for posting.

I am curious, do you have the top fans on exhaust or intake? And if it's on intake, does that create any issues? I am new to the whole PC building thing and I read that having intake fans blowing at each other can create issues like turbulence and spots of dead air.

Thanks again for the great pics of this sexy machine.

i have 2 140mm fans exhausting out the top mate, and 3 intake on from 120mm..and 1 on rear exhaust out the back...run the front 3 on full...top 2 on half and the back one on half on my controller..seems to keep it well cool enough...

love my build mate its really done me proud and yes the r1 fits perfectly mate and im more than happy with the results its given...all in all...its beat my expectations this build...very happy..

thanks mate for the comments :) appreciated!

Half the price of mine and will probably run circles around it. I really like the red and white fans setup.

cheers buddy, yeah im thinking of upgrading to the corsair HD 120s on front..they look better. the 6700k overclocks well like, and im glad i opted for the cryorig cooler instead of water cooling. the GTX 980 ti superclocked really is a monster of a card..and i got it DIRT cheap brand new from scan few weeks before the 1080 release . if anything....i was a M2 ssd .. get all operating system installed on that...i hate it because im always wanting to spend money on it!
