Description

No heat issues whatsoever. Running AIDA64 CPU stress test and FurMark GPU stress test at the same time yielded max temps of 60°C on the CPU and 62°C on the GPU. Ambient was ~20-22°C.

CPU overclocked easily to a stable 4.5GHz with no voltage adjustment. GPU overclocked to a stable 2.11GHz.

As you can see in the pictures, I had to make a small notch in the case to fit the power cables for the 1080 FTW.

Little stunner (and those coolant pipes, I see what you did there...)

Love these minimalist builds! You crammed so much power in this while keeping great temps A+

This looks amazing! Nice and compact particularly with those temps! Are those temps above ambient?

Thanks! Ambient temps were 20-22°C.

Mind if I ask what tool you used to 'modify' your case to fit in your GPU? I've just ordered a card which is 279 x 140 1070 card because it was an amazing deal but i'm doubting my ability to fit it in (although i've seen someone manage it here!)

I just used a Dremel; the case was very easy to cut.

Lovely build! Is the aio hard to fit onto this case? I have the same case - thinking about getting a liquid cpu cooler. How do the fans work? Are both the 200mm and radiator fans intakes (blowing towards the cpu direction)?

AIO actually went in very easily. Both fans pull air from the front, though really the rad fan isn't necessary with all the airflow from the 200mm fan.

Thanks for the reply - so just to be clear, the air passes through the rad from the front to the back if the case (where the is space fire the 2x80mm fans)?

Yup, that is correct.

Incredible cable work. How the heck did you get the PSU>GPU cables to fit under the bar, there? I have the same case+gpu and am fairly stumped.

I had to cut out a notch with a Dremel, put the card halfway in, attach the cables, then slide the rest of the card into place. It was a very tight fit and I had to bend the cables as much as I could to get them under the bar without it catching. If I were to do it again I would buy or make a custom right angle power connector.

I am trying to understand why some 1080 cards fit without mod and some dont.

The reason is that aftermarket cards come in a variety of sizes.

Might be a bit late but I've got the same case and card and I've done the same modification on the case as you however I cant seem to fit the power button in. Was wondering how you did it?

This was quite a few builds ago so I can't quite remember how I got it in. What I do remember is the power button being a royal pain. I think I may have lowered the card in with one hand and fit the button in with the other so they both slid into place at the same time. Either way I clearly remember forcing things into place and accepting that something could break in the process. Thankfully nothing did.
