Description

This is an update to my previous build. New monitor, case, fans, graphics card and upped the overclock. Primarily used for gaming as well as audio production.

I can't praise this case enough. The extra cold air I'm able to draw in allowed for a minor bump in my overclock compared to the restrictive NZXT S340 I moved from.

When installing the Corsair LL fans I wish I had taken the time to boot the system with fans installed (radiator not in case) before closing it all up. There is a very specific way to install them so that certain effects (ping pong for example) look right. I'm not sure if there is a way to "rotate" the fans 90 or 180 degrees in the software, but there is nothing worse than starting up the build to realize you need to pull the rad and re-position the fans so everything looks right. In the pictures you may notice that the two fans for the rad need to be rotated to properly match the location of the illuminated LEDs on the other fans. I also had one of my front fans offset on the front, but those were a quick fix.

This will eventually be upgraded to MkIII which will feature 3nd gen Ryzen, but that's a few months out at least.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Wish I had spent a bit more for a better MOBO, but for the price I can't complain. Basic OC is easy to do, but I wish there was an option to WOL, at the time I never thought about it but now I'd love the added convenience.

Yes! another Meshify C Dark Tint... I'm actually going to be redoing my fan setup, and putting a Deepcool 3 RGB Fan kit up front to match the Gammax GT fan.

Looks great. :)

I love that cooler in yours, I am debating going with air or another AOI when I upgrade myself. Initially I was going to pick up that cooler for this project, but decided to drop more on those fans than I initially planned.

The Gammax GT?? so far is great, CPU is not even breaking a sweat 4.4ghz. and it helps the Meshify is decent for air flow.

If I decide to OC more in the future, I may have to go with a Be Quiet Dark Rock or a Noctua... I'm good for now.

You didn't do anything to the front of the meshify to help the lights shine through did you? Ive seen some people saying they did and some saying they havent, +1, nice build!

It's due to how sweet those fans are. I've seen some that the lights just don't look great through the filter and mesh.

I have a set of older riing fans, Im curious if they have improved as I felt they were a bit on the dim side.

Amazing, I can try and snag temps if you want more info. But i am blown away by the performance.

awesome. I was debating having the same fan setup as you but i dont know if temps are better with front mounted aio or top mounted.

Can I ask if there is any space between the radiator fans and the memory? Is there room for a thicker radiator (if you pulled it downwards would it hit the memory)? Is there room for taller memory?

there is a little room, but i wouldn't want to go high profile with this setup. rad in front would also work but i wanted to maximize air coming into the case.

Wouldn't want to or can't, as in there's no room? I'm in the middle of creating a datasheet for people who are confused about the space in the Meshify C.

Here's the link if you want it

Any way you could post a screenshot of your icue setup for the fans?

  • 16 months ago

its just the visor. I'll see if I can recreate that as I haven't set iCUE up like this.

Why use a Rgb psu if you cant see it? other than that this is a really sick build +1

I fried my corsair PSU and was in a tight spot and it was all the local shop had. You can see the rgb out the bottom but barely.
