Description

What started as a aio cooler on sale during Black Friday morphed into a new build. This is my second one. First time doing cable sleeving. Spend 30+ hours doing cable management and sleeving plus build work. It turned out wonderful. Over clocks are great 3.9 on the cpu with only 1.375v 2ghz on the gpu with 8600mhz on the memory. I’m super happy and it doesn’t even hiccup playing most of my games. The final has the gpu mounted horizontal to keep temps in check.

What did you think about building in the HAF case? Was it pretty easy? I thought about buying it for my next build bud had heard some not so good reviews.

It was super easy. The cable management is amazing. I love the covers in the back as well.

My only complaint is the top and front cover feel cheap as hell. I wish they were glass and metal instead of plastic.

I see in one of your pictures that you are using the stock AMD cooler. Did you not buy the liquid cooler, or was it just too ambitious?

I had an old air cooler floating around. It was to make sure everything was running before I started doing sleeving. Had to wait on the bracket for the aio from Corsair which just showed up yesterday. It’s on water now.

Would you recommend the 1070ti over the 1080? Is the 1080's extra FPS really worth it?

They are pretty similar. It would depend on what you can find cheaper. The 1070ti and 1080 have almost the same FPS. Now if you can get a good deal on a 1080ti that would always be my first choice.

The cables look great! The learning curve may be steep at first, but it's cool to have the satisfaction!

Thanks. By the end I found how to do it faster. It came down to not trying to reuse the atx terminals and just cut them and replace them.

Do you use PET sleeving? I've only ever used paracord, but I think PET looks a little nicer.

1/8" PET High Flame Retardant Expandable Braided Sleeving - Black w/ White Tracer - 100FT https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0731S85L5?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

That’s what I used. Way cheaper than buying from a pc company

Hey, I wanted to know. Did you get the ram to stay stable at 2933mhz? If so, with what timings/voltages? I have that same exact ram and a 1600x running on a MSI x370 GAMING PRO Carbon mobo. I'm having issues where the RAM is crashing so I wanted to know if it was the RAM or if it was the MOBO.

Biggest thing is to check the compatibility list from your MOBO manufacturer. It was on the list for my asus board and i used the standard DOCP profile for 2933. Advertised timings from the ram, and 1.35v i think. I'd have to go back into the bios to check. Of course make sure you are on the newest bios.

I just checked and the corsair CMR16GX4M2C3000C15 is not on MSI's compatibility list. I would recommend returning it for something that is on the list.

G skill F4-3000C16Q-32GTZR is an rgb thats on the list

Dumb question, but how am I able to adjust the RGB 200mm fans? Mb and top corsair 120mm fans I'm able to change via gigabyte RGB fusion, but can quite find a way to change up the front case fans..they just keep blinking r,g,b. Can anyone help?
