Description

time for a change, new case... loved the look of the meshify c when I came out, so I had to try it. Temps are amazing! lower then any other case i've tried, and surprisingly lower with an air cooler than an AIO. Originally got an H100i V2 but had some issues with RAM clearance unless I used the stock fans it came with which I didn't like to I switched to the Dark Rock 3, and haven't looked back. Other then swapping the included 140mm for two silent wings 120mm.

PC looks great, as does the setup. Love the wallpaper as well. I'm curious did you screenshot Wonder-woman to get that image, because if so that is some stellar reaction time to press those keys a just the right time to get that image. +1

Nice Build! what temperature does your CPU reach with the new Dark Rock 3?

thanks, idle is mid to high 30's and most gaming is in the 70's.. wildlands hit 81 and nfs payback has hit 89-94. not sure why on that one game. perhaps optimization? or maybe my settings.

I love that case, and your build looks great (no unbalanced colors). Enjoy your new PC! :D

That table top is just beautiful man. So is your computer. Nice build! +1

Edit: Where’d you get the table top from? Ikea?

Setup-wars worthy PC and setup. Very beautiful. One thing I'd suggest is wall decor above the monitor.

This is a really good look. I like the black and dark blue look, reminds me of dark magic of sorts. Maybe even a build name like "Grimoir" or "Nosferatu" or something +1

Sweet build. Do you think it'd be possible to install two led strips on the sides on the inside of the front mesh?

Damn, you hit 5ghz with the Air cooler? Thinking of getting the Noctua DH15 and was hoping I could hit 5ghz with that.

yeah, I was surprised too. didn't try to go any higher since that was already a setting in the bios. but, not only didn't it get there, it's actually lower temp than when I put an h100i

Hey man. I have a question on the tabletop. I am going to get it for my setup that I am going to put together in about two weeks, and I was thinking about a few things. 1.) The depth of the alex drawer is listed to be shorter than that of the countertop, so that obviously would mean that it overhangs a bit, but I don't see any overhang here. Do you have it overhanging in the back? 2.) What did you use to secure the tabletop to the alex drawers? Does it just rest on top of the drawers? I would imagine it has a bit of weight to it, so I'm sure it wouldn't move that much (especially with my setup on it) but still... I would like to secure it if possible. I am going to get the countertop and alex drawers next week so if you could respond quickly that would be wonderful. Thanks so much in advance my man!

sorry for the delay, just seen this.. to answer your questions 1. yes, i have the over hang in the back, about 3 inches. works well for cables and the outlet. 2. no, i did not secure it. I just have sitting on top, and no it doesn't move unless I intentionally do it. most people that secure it tend to use the risers from ikea (i'm not really a fan of that look personally)

Hey man it's me again lol. What size is the countertop? Did you get the bigger version (90 or so inches) or the smaller version (70 or so inches)?

Love this build man. I'm still ordering parts but I'm modeling mine after yours.

How do you like the NZXT Aers? I'm considering picking up 2x140 for the front but I'm seeing complaints about the CAM software.

I'm gonna give the DR3 a shot with my 8700k after seeing this. Didn't think it'd be enough but if temps are good for you it's worth a shot.

thanks! sorry, just seeing this post now, did you get it finished. love to see it.

I like them. especially when they're mounted on top. i think they look better than other options out there. I've tried several, ML, LL, riing plus, etc. As for the software, only real issue i've had with it is it not opening or not wanting to sign in.

yeah, I never had any issues with temps with it especially it being in push/pull. i have recently changed coolers though, more of an aesthetic thing for me. the air coolers are too big and cover the mobo and ram.

Beautiful build; I love the subdued look. I'm planning on using the same RAM with the Dark Rock 4 cooler. Just to confirm: you used a Silent Wings 3 120mm on each side and ditched the included 135mm fan, correct? Did you have any problems with the wire fan clips? I know they include four so that you can mount 2 fans, but none of the information online says if the clips are the same for both the 120mm and included, larger fan. Also, is there any clearance between the bottom of the frontmost fan and the first RAM stick? Or are they touching? And is that fan centered on the fin stack, or did you have to raise it up closer to the top of the cooler in order for the fan to clear the RAM? Last question: did you test the performance at all with just one 120mm fan, or did you go straight for two? Sorry for all the questions, and thank you in advance for the help. I'm going into my first build, and I'm just trying to make sure I have all the details figured out before I order parts and start building.

thanks, I like it a lot. my only complaint is back light bleed in bottom corners but I see the same complaint on most reviews. aside from that, huge upgrade from my previous monitor. Went from 80 hz to 120 and g-sync

depends on the game but yes, most of the time. wildlands hovers around 80, nfs payback is in the 90's, but anything else that's not super demanding will hit well over 120
