Description

Hi everyone,

I'm a part time videographer and I been dreaming of building a pc by myself. So, this is the very first PC I build after watching many tutorials on YouTube. The prices of these parts are not the same at the current market since I bought them during Black Friday and I also got some parts from my friend because he can get them cheaper. I chose Thermaltake case because of its look, and I feel like it would give me enough space to work with since I'm a noob. Besides these part, I also purchase a pack of rainbow cable from Thermaltake to add to the theme.

When I installed the GPU, I found an issue that it hits the CPU cooler, so I have to reinstall the CPU cooler to the top of the case. Since I have 7 fans and 3 fans from the CPU coolers, I have to use the fan controllers come with these fan packages so I use their software to control these fan. Here is another issue that I have, the Windows can't recognize two controllers come along with the fan packages but it can recognize the CPU cooler's controller.

Holy Moly guacamole, you got the perfect case for the best RGB build this month. I love the 16 gig sticks. Not over kill at all. I am so jealous

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

Thanks :)

Liinkehpoop 4 points 16 months ago

You better have one of those RGB chairs, that would totally complete the build. Just hope someone with epilepsy comes into your room, really nice job anyway!

AseemDaSpark 3 points 16 months ago

It’s like if a gay man ate a bunch of skittles then vomited it out on your case (it’s a compliment/it’s beautiful)

Nater650 3 points 15 months ago

Yeah

Or Nyan cat spewing out rainbows while flying

SwordOfDamocles+5 1 point 2 months ago

I agree.

TheGreenSpy 2 points 16 months ago

Not sure what to say about this, SOOOO MANY LEDS, but your missing something very important, an rgb strip (Would be wayyyyy to overkill) but still.

SwordOfDamocles+5 1 point 2 months ago

It would look tacky with RGB strips.

Man this is really nice, I got the same motherboard too but for my 8600k.

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

Yeah it's a hella good looking motherboard.

GamingInfernus 2 points 2 months ago

Where are the rest of the fans that you bought though? Are they like hidden in a secret compartment??

Chubbby 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I love it, however one questions. Why did i go with inly half the rainbow in terms of color on each of the gpu cables instead if the full set of colors like the 24 pin connector

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

These cables already come like that Chubbby. I would change 1 of them if they have different color tho.

Chubbby 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Ok just curious. Just so u know i believe cable mod lets u make custom cables, granted they are pricey but it would make it look 121 percent compared to 120 percent lol

RogueRenegade 1 point 16 months ago

Does your trio GPU sag alot? Looking at the same one and I have seen many-a-video-and-review showing how much it sags

ggggovi 1 point 16 months ago

Those cables are crazy. Sweet build.

Wolklung 1 point 16 months ago

Are you secretly a unicorn?

Very nice indeed!

I bet you dont like Trum...

imcintyr 1 point 15 months ago

Nice color. Serious question here, I've read reviews where some are having trouble seating their 1080ti cards in the top PCI slot. They were zotac cards and I'm an EVGA fan but checking all the same. Thanks in advance for your help!

SnowTheJester 1 point 15 months ago

where did you get the rainbow cables?

KnoDeWae 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Hi there, looking at the 8700k and the Floe Riing RGB 360, what temperature does the cooler keep your CPU at when at high load?

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

It's falling between 60 - 70 Celsius degree.

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Where do you get those custom cables

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Amazing I’m planning on a build but this is amazing

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Go for it bae and ty <3

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Do you have a video of this build

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

You mean tutorial and progress video or final product video?

Leerivas 2 points 14 months ago

Do those rainbow wires come with those clip on cable holders o they come seperatelu if they do plz send me the link

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

I bought these cables seperately, I suggest you check out cable mod or cable extended set on newegg to match with the color theme you want :). And this is my first time I didn't record the video during building it. There are plenty tutorial videos on Youtube about how to build a PC. Good luck with your build and post me an update when you finish buddy.

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

The second build of mine is what I’m building help me with those incompatibilities plz

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

send me your list. I will take a look :D

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Any I want to know how to build this amazing pc

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Mainly tutorial

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

I am recreating this but with a nvidia 1080 ti founders I want to make my 1st pc look like this but Ima change the lights to green to accent my graphics card that’s my idea

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Do the rainbow wires come with those black cable holders though if they don’t send me the link plz

Leerivas 1 point 14 months ago

Hey do the rainbow wires come with those clip on wire holders or their separate

Salem434 1 point 14 months ago

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Take me photos, and email me @ tn20992@gmail.com

badmini 1 point 13 months ago

Which M.2 slot do you have the Samsung - 960 EVO 1TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive in on the MOBO?

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

hey, I first installed it under the GPU, then move it back into the slot where it has the cover.

sdenomme 1 point 8 months ago

I have a question I see that you have about 10 case fans in the build description however I only see about 4 of them. Just wondering where you hid the other 6... I have the same case and was about to do a similar type build but was thinking of doing case fans across the top and then the liquid cooler right beneth it but now I'm worried it might be to packed.

MatthewThomasA05 1 point 5 months ago

awesome build, i plan on building an RGB version as well.

Luciditi 1 point 5 months ago

This made me blind

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Enscrybed 1 point 4 months ago

I love how you have a ridiculous power supply. Where are the other fans? Did you have to remove some because you moved the cooler, or is there more above the cooler?

HiroNewf 1 point 3 months ago

I dont want to be mean but this is hurting my eyes. It is a great build but I am not a fan of a rainbow color scheme. The specs are good though.

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

I actually showed up there for a troll cuz I switched to black and red after that xD.

HiroNewf 1 point 3 months ago

yeah black and red is much better than nice, safe color scheme

GamingInfernus 1 point 2 months ago

Sooooo muuch RGB !! Wow. It looks incredible. Good job on an amazing build.

Cookienese 1 point 2 months ago

how're the fans?

SwordOfDamocles+5 1 point 2 months ago

I think it could have done with a custom water cooling loop.

Im epileptic... jk! Nice build

kryptic41 0 points 15 months ago

Look into the NZXT Hue+ to spice up your PC with a little more RGB. Sick build though!

dumboloco 0 points 8 months ago

Hey, I am thinking of getting this same Case and SSD. Where did you put your SSD? By looking at the specs of this Thermal case I do not see a slot to put M.2 SSDs on the back, just 2.5 and 3.5 (or am I wrong?).

Nice build man, very colorful.

tn20992 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Thank you for stopping by my post. The M.2 SSD is installed directly to the motherboard. There are 6 slots on the back of the case for 2.5 SSD and 4 slots for 3.5 HDD. If you don't use HHD you can buy the mount to install extra 2.5 SSDs. I modified my rig lately a bit with the color theme. Check out the following image. https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.15752-9/s2048x2048/33066046_2064349943887491_8673079472313860096_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=5c20e4f3082ce35749e54f51def8258f&oe=5BCDF7FF
