Update_Otkober 2018 New Fans , Overclock Timespy: 6665_55C 66C Max CPU/GPU
Update_Oktober 2018 Changed the Fan configuration for better Colling (negative Pressure) also enabled the Boost Clock of the CPU_ Firstrike: 15459_49C 60C Max CPU/GPU Timespy: 5975_46C 60C Max CPU/GPU
Build September 2017_ The goal of this build was to follow the black and white theme like ying and yang, also it was very important to have a very cool inside of the PC 33°C CPU and 34°C GPU idel and 43°C CPU and 58° GPU on max load. Not Overclocked, even the clockboost of the CPU is disabled in BIOS to get the temps as low as possible. Firestirke score: 15443 Timespy score: 5823
FPS average on Heaven Benchmark 4.0, Quality High, Tessellation Moderate, Mode 2560x1080: 117,3
AIRFLOW: The NZXT Elite S340 is relative short so the air does not have to travel much, but the front panel only has a small intake on the top and bottom! i tested it without the front panel and i got 3C° Cooler results after benchmarking. So i made a Casemod for better Airflow i cut out the plastic on the front Panel underneath the Metal so more air can flow in -2°C was the result. The Radeon RX Vega 56 is a blower style, the heat goes out directly behind the PC and does not pass the CPU witch i find is a good thing, because the CPU Cooler is relative small (good enough) but it would not be good if it gets the extra heat from the GPU. Playing Rocked League with 150 FPS and 2560x1080p the Temperature are 43°C on CPU and 58°C on GPU MAX.
I got the sapphire Radeon Vega 56 for 430€ which was a very cheap price for the time. Now you can find a GTX 1070ti sometimes for 390€ but if i get a Radon Vega 56 for under 400€ i still take the AMD GPU because of the Freesinc Support.
For RGB Lighting i bought a cheap 14€ RGP Lighting strip with USB Connector and Remote control. The Monitor i got on Amazonday for 450€ instead of 550€ LG 34UC79G-B 34” Curved UltraWide Gaming-Monitor 144Hrz.
I got two white ring LED Fans PWM 4 Pins from upHere for 14€ + some anti vibration rubber from Noctua
