Ya, I need to update that parts list, went back to a 1080ti
The EVGA 1080ti runs much cooler. Doesn't get warmer than 75c under load, most of the time hovers are 70c under load. This is a great little setup.
At the moment, I like this build, till something newer and shiny comes along. :)
All done using NZXT CAM Software and their hardware components that they plug into. The video card is set separately.
Saw your build on Instagram looking good, here's my finished build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/8JBbt6
Good idea about the rad. Only problem is it's 140 mm so wouldn't fit at the back, however NZXT now sells this rad in 120 mm so I might sell this one, and get the smaller rad so I can mount at the back.
Yup sure did.
X42 has the infinity lights as well. :)
Thanks. :) I didn't experience any vibrations.
Thanks, I think the dual 120's might work, but all depends on your motherboard I think. The height of the heat sinks can really hamper install.
They do, most comfortable, best sounding headset I've owned. I've tried internal audio card, usb audio, and keep going back to the motherboard audio, as I feel it best drives this headset. I upgraded the Smart Headphone Amp, which really up'd sound volume through the front audio port.
I didn't need to add any further lighting. Everything controlled from the case controller, or via my Motherboard. This is my favorite build so far. I have no plan to replace anytime soon. I love the Halos!
It should fit if you do push pull.
Thanks!! I am enjoying it, think I might have finally hit the sweet spot for a system. At least for me.
No worries. :) It is pretty big. LOL
Not sure, but your graphics card needs to be short, if it does.
I run the fans on low most of the time, even with an overclock on my i5 and it's very quiet. Like any system once you kick the fans into high gear, you can hear them. But I am super happy with this case.
No real reason, eventually when i7 prices drop a bit I'll move to the i7 :)
:) All good questions. I think a good amount of air gets through due to push pull on the RAD and below the RAD I have another 140 mm fan which moves air over the graphics card. I've got the x42 Kraken, so I can do push pull. I don't think the 240 will fit if you have a long video card in a push pull setup
I'm not certain of the difference in the Lux, other than I think that on the white fan blades the color looks more dispersed, for me I compared the ascetics and really liked how it looked.
It comes with a strip that lights up the bottom near front of the case, but doesn't extend to the back. There is no spare led strip, I think I read that was one of the differences between it an the P400.
Yes with a 120 fan up top, it's very very tight. I had to get one screw into the fan and then push to get the others in place. It's close but it did fit with 4 screws.
I am enjoying the case. A lot less dust getting into my system, which was a major point for me, as other cases were letting too much dust through the filters. With my fans on low, I sit at 27 to 28c and that's with the CPU overclocked. And when it's time to game with the fans cranked up, it still keeps the system nice and cool. If I had an I7 that might be a little different, but with the I5 it's very much to my liking temp wise.
Desktop footprint is so nice. And I have no issues taking it to a lan party. Of all the cases I've built in, this compact seems to meet all the needs I have. 0 complaints.
It's a Phanteks 120mm, PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Retail Cooling Fan PH-F120MP_BK_PWM with a Phanteks PH-FF120RGBP_BK01 Halos RGB Fan Frame High density LEDs RGB 120mm fan mounting on top, really sweet looking setup. Yes that fan setup should be plenty.
It is in the highest slot.
Love this case! And as you can see from my previous builds I try a lot of cases. I think this is the best so far. I love the aesthetics, plenty of space, and good price.
1ST :) LOL
Liquid cooling to me is a personal choice. I love the look of this cooler, and it's working well.
Temps are better but it could be my fan configuration. I build based on what I like looks wise. :) Nothing scientific to my build.
Using the NZXT Puck, and using NZXT Cam Software to monitor temps.
It fits, my problem was how tight the power cable was pushing against the drive cages, it worked, but was super tight.
I took the drive cages out since I use M.2 drives. PS fit, but cables were tight, until I removed the drive cage. After that plenty of room. :)
I like it, easy to build in, smaller desktop footprint, can't beat the price, the front piece is steal so I was able to put my NZXT S340 puck on it. :) It's a quality case I have no complaints! Plus much lighter to take to Lan Parties.
55 Inches. :)
I think it would work, see no reason it would not.
A friend of my wife's makes them. https://www.facebook.com/JonesCreativity
I highly recommend him. He makes all kinds of things, and even special requests.
55 Inches, It's a Sony XBR 55X810C and it works like a champ as a monitor. It actually got really high marks to be used as a PC Monitor.
It is sooo nice, runs cool. Looks sexy as hell. I love it. Have to wipe it down every so often because you can see dust on the glass, but a small price to pay. IMHO
Ya me too, I was able to shut down most of the red led's so that helped a bit. I love the purple color of the fans though.
I changed the name of the profile. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
Looks like I could turn it off. I can also change the color are the leading edge of the Motherboard, but unfortunatly I don't think I can disable the red audio channel.
Looks good. The best part about building your own, is well you get to build your own.
I had it in a smaller Inwin 303 case. And then went by Fry's and they had this case and just had to get it.
Not to bad. :)
Love the case.
Love the paint job, is that custom? Nice unique look.
What fans are those at the top?
How would you rate the pump noise. I got one on Friday. And the pump does have an audible whine to it.
Nice where did you get the white power supply cables?
It actually goes in the top behind the 3 top fans. Thanks, it's a sleek build.
Not sure what you mean?
Thanks! Your's looks great as well. For the Fan's I control them with a NZXT Grid+ V2 that coupled with NZXT's CAM software gives me control of the fan's from Windows. Love it.
Good Idea I may switch it up.
