Thanks! That's really what it came down to. All black. With some RGB for accent lighting. It's always set to a static color. Usually purple lol

Thank you! The H150i Pro is by far the best cooler I have ever used. Pump is dead silent. Fans are dead silent on idle. Very quiet on load. Keep in mind my CPU is delidded with copper iHS. I get awesome temps even during stress tests. After 12 hours of testing my CPU never went over 55C. And that's with a very quiet custom fan curve.

Nice clean build. You may wanna flip your front fans for positive airflow.

Why not so much storage? But mainly just because I took advantage of an eBay promotion and got the HDDs new for $120 no tax. I also wanted dual parity off the bat.

Most concurrent streams would be 15. But most transcoded streams is 10. The cpu or Quadro don't break a sweat and bandwidth is only 4Mbp/s per stream.

I just retired my old ones after 5 years of running 24/7. Do you have any source of information on their longevity? Because I've never heard of that or experienced it.

Thank you!

I use the Quadro to transcode audio/video on my Plex Media Server. The Quadro line has no limitation to how many transcodes it can do. The gaming line (GTX 10xx, RTX 20xx) have a limit of 2 transcodes. I have been able to transcode 10 streams at the same time and the P2000 was barely at 35% utilization. Plus its TDP is 75w. I also use it to convert content sometimes with handbrake or VLC

Correct, the term used is "shucking". These drives are rebranded HGST Helium NAS HDDs with TLER, 256mb cache. Something like this usually costs $350ish USD. I got lucky and bought a lot of them during an eBay promo which came out to $120 each, no tax. There is some issues with power, most of them require light modding to get them to power on with regular sata power cables. Most people just put tape over the 3rd pin. I opted to remove the pin completely with a razor blade, worked great. Only downside is I void the warranty. That's a gamble I am willing to take.

Thank you! Temps are pretty good. Will peak at 50C during heavy load and stay at 40C during idle and normal load. They all work well but what I like the most about the EKWB is the clips. They have a very strong tension to "mush" the heatsink to the M.2 with the thermal pad in the middle. Better heat transfer. I've used some $10 ones on Amazon and they come with little o-rings which holds the heatsink in place, doesn't work as good as the EKWB clips

It's dead silent. The stock intake fans are silent, I replaced the exhaust fan for a large 140mm Corsair ML Pro. Stock AMD cooler is dead silent since I'm not overclocking. 16 dB.

His way isn't wrong. You can go either way. However I am interested in the air pressure in the case.

OP, traditionally you have the 3 front fans as intake and the 1 rear, 2 top fans as exhaust. This will give neutral flow

Hello great build. You're inspiring me to do a dual 1080Ti build with this. Can you fit both rads at the top of the case? Or is that not possible so that's why you mounted them the way you did?

No, due to the current market. However I tore this build down. And kept 2 cards for my 2 personal rigs. I am still mining though with 28x 1080Tis.

Dual booting or soley booting Mac OSX will always be a more difficult task opposed to a VM. It all depends on your current hardware though. Some boards and CPUs don't play well with OSX and requires a lot of tinkering. So a VM will most likely be an easier route for you. Yes performance is determined by the OS you're trying to run and the resources necessary to run it smoothly.

It all really depends on the OS you plan on on running and on which virtual environment. In terms of running OSX on your i5-7600k I know from experience I was able to load OSX Sierra on VMWare on my old 7700k rig. It was fairly easy. OSX being a pretty lightweight OS will run fine with a single core and 2-4gb of RAM. You're host PC will run fine as long as you're not doing anything heavy such as gaming. I mess around more with old Windows and newer Linux VMs mainly through Virtual Box. With the Windows VMs set to use 2 cores and 4gb RAM. Single core and 1gb RAM for Linux. My host PC Runs like a champ. I picked my ram wisely. It's cas latency is 12 with short and snappy timings. My 1TB SATA SSD is really only for storage. All VMs are on the NVME. Another option you may have is dual booting. So when you boot your PC you have the option to login to Windows or Mac.

The Black Microwave really inspired me to do this build! My ram is low profile I'm sure if I could fit the Dark Rock Pro 3 in here without issues. There was some issues mounting to the front. So I did on top which is better imo to better exhaust heat and also cover up unused space.

Also very good. I love the Slim Rock cooler. Very compact and works well. I know they make some great fans as well. If I wasn't looking for small coolers I'd definitely get their Dark Rock Pro cooler.

I do love Cryorig's products. Unfortunately they don't make any small all black air coolers. Otherwise I would've had it, no matter the price. I was close to using the H5 but didn't like the size of it. Of course the R1 would look nice but same thing, size. H7 would've been great if it was all black. Oh well.

I agree. But I prefer it this way opposed to unused space which I see a lot of.

Pretty good. However in my current setup it does run pretty hot at 62°C. I'm sure if it was in a traditional tower case setup the heat wouldn't be an issue. I only got it cause I found it cheap on Reddit.

Question: is there enough clearance to use ram with a heatspreader such as G.Kill Ripjaws? Or only low profile ram would work for you?

Amazing build. I'm planning on getting this case. But there's very little space between the GPU and PSU shroud. Do you have any issues with heat?

In my description I stated I was using a Nvidia Shield TV before. And no, I do not need a 1080, but I also stated I am mining it to make some money. The Shield TV has a low power octa core CPU and 3gb ram. Plex media server is a great free software where you basically make your on personal Netflix.

For my choice in CPU, it all depends on the number of transcoding streams you want/need. For me it's 4 and sometimes 5 streams at once with my family. A passmark CPU benchmark score is used to calculate which CPU is best. A score of 2000 is a single 1080p HD transcoded stream. The Ryzen 7 1700 scored 12,500 if I remember correctly, leaving me room for 6+ transcoding streams.

Thanks for pointing that out to other users who apparently don't read descriptions. This thing puts how serious heat. Window wide open, it will be 60F outside but my room is 85F and the rig is right next to the window. I will be moving it somewhere else come summer time.

No. Not much of a PC gamer. I prefer console. But I'm sure it would crush any game out there. I was using Awesome miner for a couple weeks. During then I was using miningpoolhub and zpool. But my miner favored zpool much more. I have switched to NiceHash, much easier to magage. It really is a set it and forget it program. No pools needed to configure

Thanks for that! There's several ways to calculate. If you're interested go to whattomine.com it's a great tool. As you can see in my parts list I am using a TP-Link smart energy monitoring plug.You setup the phone app, It gives you a full breakdown of current power being used, how long the runtime has been, and stats for last 7 days and another for last 30 days. It's definitely worth the money to get one.
