There are two modular cables each with 3 SATA power connectors. One of them is hidden :)
Luckily everything just barely fit without modification (I was about to take a dremel to the ram heatsinks!). The DIMMs just barely touch the rad :)
Darker gray. Thanks :)
My previous build was an over the top custom loop (cooled the CPU, 3 GPUs, and 2 areas of my mobo with dual pumps and 2 massive rads). I was going for a more modest (and more affordable) appearance with this one which I think turned out nicely.
It's a solid board, but I seem to be getting some strange sound artifacts. Not sure exactly what is causing it though.
Just some old NZXT ones. I should probably upgrade them to fans with higher flowrate.
This is what I planned to do initially, sadly the 1080ti is too long to fit that config.
No issues here! The 2x 140mm fans I mounted to the front provide plenty of fresh air for the gpu. Its fans only hit about 50% speed on stock settings at full load, but I usually push them to 75% just to keep it relatively cool (~50°C vs 70+). Personally, I rarely use my spinning hdd so heat isn't a problem there. It is possible to mount a single 3.5" drive in place of the hdd cage which would provide better passive cooling, and I'm sure you could stick a small (>100mm) fan in front of it under the shroud if you wanted.
The software is a bit iffy at the moment but I got it working how I want it to. Hopefully they will improve it with time. It cools really well and looks amazing which are the reasons I bought it despite hearing about software issues and pump failures.
Go for it! I think it would make your build look a bit more tidy :)
I'm not going to bother OCing until I delid and apply LM, it's running quite warm as it is.
The two 128 GB drives are running in RAID0. I used them as a boot drive for my old pc, I'm surprised they still work (one of them is 5 years old).
Hmm I didn't even think about that, thanks! I suppose 32 GB is a bit excessive anyway.
