Description

Thought it would be fun to play around with some new Tech and showcase some RGB action. More upgrades to come. I wanted to not break the bank with this build but showcase some basic level builds, no liquid cooling, and show off the View 37 RGB case. I moved the two front stock 140mm fans to the inside and have them bringing air into the case and replaced the two stock 140mm with the RIING 20 (200mm) Thermaltake fans. Still messing around with it, but if you like RGB I think it looks awesome!

9.23.19 Update - Upgrade GPU to the new Sapphire Pulse RX 5700XT.

Damn, all that RGB has to add like 50-100 fps on every title...

How's the ThermalTake case treating you?

I like it a lot. You have to be very careful as it can scratch really easy, but air flow has not been an issue thus far

New with pcs. Is this build powerful enough to run 4k? Example, bf1 4k.

  • 17 months ago

Well most definitely the processor could, only trouble is that we have no idea what GPU there is in there. But... the 1070 can run maybe some lighter titles at lower settings at 4K pretty well, the 1080 is decent at most AAA games at 4k, and the 1080ti is the flagship card (excluding the Titan V which is near 4,000 dollars...) should be able to handle almost all games on high settings at 60 fps at 4k! hope this helps!

Absolutely, a lot of that is graphics card dependant and your monitor of course. I have my old GTX980 from MSI in this currently and it handles 4K resolution no problem

Do you plan on upgrading the gpu from 980?

1000% yes. Just haven't made the move yet clearly. Currently looking at the Sapphire Pulse 5700xt, however I was hoping to see some more RGB from the AMD cards which I haven't seen yet which is why I was waiting.

How about a 2060/70. They have a variety of cards with rgb from various manufacturers

  • 2 months ago

True that, and I have bounced back and forth between 5700xt and 2070 Super, but price per performance and the fact I rock FreeSync monitors I am going to go all in with AMD this time around. Worst case scenario I can get a card cooler thats popping with RGB to put below the card.

I really appreciate how it doesn't break the bank too much, and still looks awesome. Was wondering what kind of graphics card you have in there.

It's my old GTX 980. STILL holding out for the 11 series from Nvidia

More like 20 series now :D

Wow, first one I have seen with wraparound glass like that. Because your cooling fans are so massive, it looks like it could be a double bass speaker with integrated amp (whimsically speaking). #8) Well done.

Pretty nice build, although I think it could use some more RGB, bit too dark for my tastes.

Hi I just bought the same case and psu. Looks amazing in picture can't wait to start my first build. Could anyone suggest a good liquid cooler as I was given a i7 8700k (someone owed me some money) I still need to buy a motherboard too any advice would be appreciated

The NZXT kraken v.2 is pretty good ngl. My friend has a 9700k and it tames it even at 4.6 ghz on all cores

Amazes me how you can do a build so focused on looks and then have a GPU with no backplate...

You took RGB to the next level for sure.

Thanks for Sharing !!

Agreed. I haven't done much on the GPU side yet since I'm waiting for the 11 series from Nvidia to come out. Currently running my old MSI 980.

That build looks amazing. Now I'm thinking of doing an RGB build also :). Are the RGB fans easy to setup though? Software-wise?

  • 17 months ago

Extremely easy! Thermaltake does an awesome job with their software. Gigabyte's RGB fusion app is decent as well allowing for more customizing.

Hey man (or woman?), just wondering does all of your RGB sync?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Sorry for the delayed response. It does, the only thing right now that does its own thing is the LED ring around the AMD Stock Fan that comes with the 2700X. There is supposed to be a RGB upgrade coming out soon to fix that.

This is amazing yet the more I look at it the more I start to see it as a Rgb Toy.

Thank you. Performance has been great! Crossing my fingers for the GTX 11 series to release here next month.

Great looking build!

The 2 fans on the mobo side of the case...those are exhaust fans or intakes?

I have a Thermaltake Core V31 from a few years back and am wanting to change the case. I love that this V37 doesn't have a psu shroud and has all the view into the case to see custom cables, rgb fans and stuff, etc.

But I worry about the airflow. How did you set up your case fans?

  • 16 months ago
  • 1 point

The two fans on the MoBo side are intakes. I too was worried about airflow so I thought i better bring more in. The only Exhaust fan for this case is the rear case fan. The two front 200mm Fans are also intakes, but the View RGB case only has about a 1 inch vent on the front to bring in air. So far so good on keeping things cool. I was hoping I didn't have to upgrade to a huge Liquid Cooler and I am still crossing my fingers there.

It is in there. MSI GTX980. I was waiting for the RTX2080 Ti to come out.

Hi I have a question, did the front 200mm fans come position like that? Or did you move the two fans apart? I am looking to get this case. Thank you.

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

There are specific holes for the 200mm screws to go into, so for this case that is the mounting position they go in. Very easy to install, however the front cover can kind of be a pain to snap back on as the fans have to be perfectly positioned

Okay, thank you. I just thought the two fans are kinda separated, I dont really like that.

Maybe i got bad sight but still i'll ask you, where did you put your Crucial m.2 ssd ?

it is located right under the GPU, kind of hard to see cause it has a black heat shield on it.

I have been looking for someone else who use this case in an AMD build on here. I'm currently planning a build with this case, and almost as much RGB lol but I will have colored liquid cooling.. It's nice to see one that looks great.

  • 10 months ago

Cable management is hella easy, and yes, the portion where I used the two extra fans on the back of the case is the exhaust/intake area for your liquid cooling so it will run nice. I have yet to have any issues with just fans so far but I am not overclocking this guy.

Saying "Not being rude" does not, in fact, make your comment any less rude.

@HallowRace, I googled your case and it looks like it comes with 2x120mm fans. Your case supports up to 4 more fans. You might need to do some research to make sure you can plug them into your motherboard (like looking at a fan controller). You can also look at the specifications for your case to know the sizes (http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/define-series/define-mini-c-tg) and browse completed builds with that case to see what other people have done.
