Description

Development and Gaming Machine.

Went all out for most parts and had some drives I moved over from my last build. I'm never doing RGB lights again. The cabling was obnoxious and at the moment don't feel like it was worth doing it.

Case was pretty great to work with. Plenty of room and separating out the power supply in its own chamber in the back made it neater. Also made room for an additional 2 140MM fans at the bottom too.

Runs like a dream and haven't pushed it past 55C yet.

All in all great performing machine but wouldn't do again.

Update: Moved the 2nd fan back so you can see the ram and the fan draws air out of the cooler.

why not liquid cool?

RespectTheFish submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

Didn't want to deal with it.

An AIO is just as easy as installing an air cooler and looks infinitely better

JoeSpencer 1 point 7 days ago

Yeah for the price of the Noctua you could have gotten a basic aio and not had to deal with RAM clearance issues. Right now you can't even see the Vengeance RGB pros which seems like a waste imo.

You're all missing the point. OP didn't want a liquid cooler, and speaking from experience, the NH-D15 can perform practically just as well as any AIO.

Not to mention >16gb of RAM can't be utilized by Windows Home... needs to be Pro to exceed 16gb.

RespectTheFish submitter 1 Build 2 points 7 days ago

Windows 10 Home does support 128. System recognizes all 32gb.

JoeSpencer 1 point 7 days ago

:o really? I never knew that. Seems really arbitrary of windows to make you pay more just to use all your RAM.

JoeSpencer 1 point 7 days ago

This page claims windows 10 home supports up to 128gb of physical memory

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/memory/memory-limits-for-windows-releases

There was a 16gb limit on windows 7

RGB RAM with a D15? You can’t even see them ;)

ABCDEFFF 1 point 6 days ago

Was it hard to put ram under d15? I am building almost identical pc, i9 9900k with noctua and G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory just being worried if the there is enough height between mb and cooler.

RespectTheFish submitter 1 Build 2 points 6 days ago

The later pictures i put in had the cooler to the left so there should be space for the ram and cooler.

Awesome build! How did you manage to install 4 RAMs with a big CPU cooler? There might be a space issue.

RespectTheFish submitter 1 Build 0 points 7 days ago

The case has enough room to allow the cpu fan to be placed higher.

Could have got a 2080ti at this range. Also could have had threw out the nvme and got a 2tb ssd unless you find yourself moving mass amounts of data.

RespectTheFish submitter 1 Build 0 points 7 days ago

Yeah I bought the 2080 first since it was on sale then I just went for the rest.

only compromise was the cable management behind the computer lol! Great Build!
