Mainly used as a workstation for digital painting, 3d modeling, animation and of course 60fps gaming.
It's named 'project Akira' because the color theme is red+black+white/silver.
Everything looks stunning. Excellent work.
That case looks fantastic, really nice build m8 :)
Dat Druff! sticker tho... +1 for everything man, this build is stunning. What is that art piece in the background of your first and second pictures?
Thanks! Well the sticker... it was the only one I had that fit perfectly onto the ODD and the color theme. The art piece you are referring to is a line-art illustration I did some time ago.
Oh that's dope. Yeah I was amazed by the perfect fit on the ODD; I assumed you cut it to fit the size.
There is literally so much awesomeness crammed into this build .... you even rerouted the external antenna back into the case???
(In my best George Takei voice) Ohhhh myyyyy
Well done, this is freaking amazing!
Thank you! I had to build the whole thing twice because the first MB was defective, in the end it was a good thing since I learned how to start. I routed the antenna cables through the case even before installing anything else (accept PSU) they are very well hidden behind everything.
Yeah they are!! I mean thats pretty awesome, never seen that before and hadnt thought of that before, def gonna have to add that to my list of tricks. Im alllll about a custom build being aesthetically pleasing so thats def a plus! Guessing the difference in reception is negligible/unnoticed?
I don't know how to measure the reception quality, but I don't notice any short-comings.
Wow, I'm amazed by the temperature results of this build!!! Not only does it look amazing, but the results are outstanding! Well done! I'm so jealous and envious. How'd you manage to keep your temperatures so low? (Probably the CPU cooler and the GPU is a blower right?)
Both CPU and GPU are cooled by a AiO cooler with one static pressure fan for each blowing air out of the case + a case exhaust fan. That way the top venting wholes act as passive intakes.
As a bonus I can warm up my cold hands in winter time with the hot air from the double heat-sinks ;)
The GPU has a additional intake fan to cool the vram.
Wow, insane build ! Love the colors.
That case is so beautiful ...Nice beastly build too
This is just an incredible build, with tons of attention to detail, and clearly (CLEARLY) you put some thought into the overall aesthetic. Really, this is incredible work.
Nice, something unique. Great case by the way.
Your build looks stunning, great work on it :D If you're using it for animation and 3d modeling you should have focused more on the CPU rather than the GPU ;) (Ryzen FTW xD)
Thank you. AMD is famous for building components that are like small ovens. Small cases get hot realy fast so I think Intel and Nvidia is the better option here.
That's not really true with the last CPUs though, and you have a nice powerful CPU cooler anyway :p
Hows the optical drive? I skipped getting one for mine as I have an external, but it would be nice to remove that extra piece of clutter at some point.
Does its job good, not silent but quite enough. The eject mechanism gets noisy when pushing the disc out or on boot-up. The ODD is definetly the loudest part of this build but only during eject/first reads. It is somehow satisfying to watch the disc coming out of (nowhere) the case or beeing eaten by it.
I was a little wary as I saw some users on the Ncase/hardforum complaining about the optical drives not working right in the upright position the Ncase requires.
+1 For the Lancia Stratos Rally Model
OMg that Keyboard looks sick!
Logitech G413, it's very solid build and heavy.
That looks awesome! Definitely a fan of that setup.
Yo awesome build! This is literally my exact workload!
And sound matters so much more than people give it credit, having a silent system is so satisfying. Size and looks too. I was thinking of doing a similar (but lower budget) build with the new 65w ryzen chips.
That's a CoolForce cable clamp with double-sided tape.
I think you did a better one! Welcome to the silver M1 club.
Bear in mind putting the cables through this clamp is very, very annoying, it also does not help when some single pin connectors have two braided cables coming out for whatever reason.
