Ram is actually HyperX Beast 2400hz and Turbo is 4GB version

Build is featured on NZXT webiste aswell :D http://blog.nzxt.com/2015/12/white-shadow-s340/

Very thing is running at stock at the mo and the total build cost was £550 :D

Hoping to do another build like this in the future but hybrid cool the Asus turbo with an AIO and keeping the shroud. Also my step up the Phantek cooler to a 140mm version

Part Reviews

Memory

I got the Hyperx Beast 2400hz for cheaper, easily OC to 2666Hz with same timings

Video Card

Looks amazing! Run warm!

No back plate even thought the Strix will fit. beeing trying to ask Asus for one to paint white and install but falling. The way the fan housing it constructed their is a ramp the forces the air onto and over the heatsink, not underneath to prevent dust. This means none of the ram chips are cooled, and the heat sink sits just above them so i installed thermal pads to help out

Colour scheme is superb - hope it sets a trend as I'm totally fed up of seeing red and black.

I WANT TO SEE MORE PURPLE BUILDS

Fomrbyman 2 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

What about pink?

vVTyfighterVv 1 Build 2 points 41 months ago

Pink can be pretty cool too. I just like dark, majestic purple builds

Fomrbyman 2 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

My next build will be peach.

Trying to do this build of my nephew and niece on my bros side. Would kill to powder coat it baby blue :)

Insaneiron 2 points 41 months ago

I am so impressed with this build... as in the colour and tidyness...

I'm thinking of copying your build... I want a gaming /streaming machine this be any good?

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 0 points 41 months ago

Should be, i5 quad core should handle the streaming just fine. 960 is great for 1080p and I do run some indie games and RTS at 1440p :)

TiGGa 1 point 41 months ago

Beautiful!

Now be honest, did you get the name from my suggestion post a couple days ago in ThisBuild ?

:)

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Thanks , it was named after a member suggested the name on overclockers.net s340 forum :)

Kippors18 1 point 41 months ago

Where did you buy the sleeves? They complete this build.

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Got them from scan , and cable Combs from kustompc

SpecificAlduin 2 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Ditto to TiGGa, love this build! You might consider getting a Hue+ if you want some colour changeable lighting.

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Did try to blag one from nzxt but no luck . build was for my nephew and was trying to keep cost down, not sure if my sis would dig a glowing box haha

_Wippy03_ 1 point 41 months ago

Color scheme is great but you spent so much on SSD + CPU when u could've got a GTX 970 had you reduced a little... Still, one of the nicest builds I've seen +1

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

SSD was free, i5 was £173 when price was at an average of £190. The Turbo 960 is a 4GB version for £150. Originally it was a Gigabyte wind force triple fan 2Gb for £110 bit got screwes over

Total build cost was £550. Perfect for...Minecraft haha

Pyromaniac579 1 point 41 months ago

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Thanks, black and white is cheap this season pmsl

MightyHammer 1 point 41 months ago

hmm this is awkward I can't think of anything to say

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 2 points 41 months ago

Cheap builds can look just as awesome as triple titans and can use rest of cash for beer :)

Whiteshadow001 1 point 41 months ago

Wait a second....HEY!!!

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Pmsl :) thanks , will add 002 to it :D

Whiteshadow001 1 point 41 months ago

lol it's cool man, I was the first whiteshadow on Xbox live back when it launched. Don't see the name often, you're build is fitting of the name!

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Whiteshadow001 1 point 41 months ago

Oh man, that'd be so niiiiice

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 40 months ago

Thanks :)

BJH 1 point 41 months ago

Awesome looking build. Wanting to build a white and black themed build myself :)

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

I used this site and forums to gain some insight . specially with air coolers to see of it would fit

wrjohnson2000 1 point 41 months ago

Great build, looks great! Where did you end up putting the SSD? I don't see it in the mounting bays where it usually is...

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 2 points 40 months ago

It went in one of the bays above the PSU. It arrived very late so wasn't in the snap shots I took :(

wrjohnson2000 1 point 40 months ago

Ah thanks for the reply man

JustARandomPancake 1 point 40 months ago

Wow! This is almost exactly like the one i'm except with a black s340, and a sylake cpu. I'm just wondering, how hot does your cpu run? And are those heatsink fans kinda loud?

And about the gpu cooler, ASUS seems like they don't know how to cool vram... They did the same on the asus strix 390 and 390x.

vexa 1 point 37 months ago

if only you could apply black paint to those red lines on your gpu... sorry, my ocd sense is tingling.

Zman123 2 Builds 1 point 36 months ago

clean af

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

Thanks, should see the more powerful version :D

Epicness937 1 point 33 months ago

only thing that i would change is because of me being me the two little red lines on the 960 should be covered as they drive me crazy but this build is so nice looking :)

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

True :) maybe a black marker to have coloured it in quickly :) And thanks :)

Epicness937 1 point 33 months ago

:) it such a nice build i HOPE mine will turn out nearly as nice.....

orbitalwalsh submitter 13 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Thanks for the comments , price came first the looks, then colour haha. Just worked out. The gtx turbo was a very last add. Have been trying to ask Asus for a Strix backplate to spray white and carry on the red stripes but no luck :(

If money wasn't an issue, I'd have custom cables made up, white and black with a single red stripe
