Gaming, streaming, extravagance, etc
I was originally going to use the Thermaltake custom loop but after I got it heard terrible reviews so I'm reevaluating it.
KEYBOARD +1 nice set up
What's the name of the keyboard?
it's just a WSAD Code keyboard with custom keycaps. Cherry MX clears switches. Not my gaming keyboard but one more for work stuff.
Why did you get 6 HD Fans for?? haha
Good idea to not use the C1000 coolant. This garbage completely clogged my loop within two days.
Go with Primochill Vue after flushing it out and priming it for just over 24hrs. Flushing the loop should not be rushed.
What kind of airflow/ cooling specs does this have? Im going to guess not the greatest, this case provides no way of building negative air pressure in the system which im 99% sure causes stagnant air to build in the system causing hot pockets in certain parts. Without fans to push air in and suck air out this problem will occur which is why im just not a fan of this case. Perhaps im wrong? Leave me a comment im interested in the stats.
This is partly aesthetic appeal and partly having it work as a test bench of sorts being that it's very accessible. You can't create a directed flow for where the air is going to go sure but it hasn't been a pain point. Heat seems to escape away on its own easy enough being an open case. Nothing above 65c so so far I've yet to even get close to hitting any thermal limits with a 4.1ghz overclock on the CPU with the simple h100i I have on it right now. The radiator fans run enough under the glass to push some air around a bit. 50% of the time the fans don't even kick on my GPU or PSU under load when set to auto.
ahhh nice i was curious to see how that case would do when i seen it come out, mainly i was worried it would allow for stagnate hot air in parts but if your not hitting any thresholds then i cant really say anything bad about it. It is a great case for accessibility no doubt, nice build man. (PS: why six fans lol?)
how hot does your gpu run ?
im considering the evga sc 1080ti but i dont know if the 2 fans cools it enough
