Description

Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.9Ghz 1.36V, GPU some lite OC +150mhz core and +300mhz memory. Boosts almost permanently to 2000-2050. Temps in a 25C room top at 65C GPU even there is no venting for the AIO and 60C cpu after 2 runs of Superposition. Cracken is set on silent mode which is barely audiable and usually howers around 60-65C in gaming. Fans are set to go to 100% only over 75C which it never happens. The only way to get it to 75C is stress testing. Initially had the GPU AIO veritically but much better temps horizontally with the fan on pull (blowing up).

Happy to hear suggestions.

I just received one of my two Shifts in yesterday. Can’t wait to buildnin them.

Great looking rig. Please, have my +1

I always found the shift case to be kinda weird because 2\3 of it is empty with nothing in it but man, it looks good +1 great build

Well I think it will end up being full if my H55 fits on the 1080 mini and if I manage to fit it where the 3.5 HDD is sitting right now.

Without a doubt, it is a great daring design of Phanteks people

Very cool, I'm dying to build one of these with a custom loop

Yea, still between returning the kraken and getting an EK A240G or an A240, but my 1080 is not on the compatibility list. I will give it a try with the H55 on the 1080

Can you fit a GPU hybrid at the bottom with a Kraken or only a fan?

with an ATX psu like I have no chance. Maybe with SFX?! Although you can just fit it on top of the ATX psu like I did since not using that metal shroud. It will not take air from outside or exhaust it but temp still way better than the normal GPU. My Zotac was hitting max around 65C where it was throttling with the default cooling, before it got fried. Probably the VRM's popped as no cooling.

Hey Blaze2k,

Your build looks good. But there are a few improvements that could be made. First off, your power supply could have been a better choice. The price is economical enough however investing a little more could have resulted in a much better rating and overall performance and life span. Second your choice of storage could also use a second look at. The m.2 drive is a great choice however the Toshiba drive is a questionable choice. There are plenty of cheap Solid Sate drives that would greatly increase your overall system performance. Also the case has allot of options for mounting 2.25 inch drives that you could take advantage of with that. Also next time do a little research into your mechanical drives next time it will always pay off. According to stats from last year the 3TB model has the highest failure rate out of everything in there high capacity lineup. Last using a massive TV for your display is pretty bad idea if you are doing any kind of gaming unless all you are looking for is console level performance. There are many good monitors out there at great prices. No courtesy comment here you should really look at your build again. I wish you luck on your future improvements.

Good suggestions/remarks but some parts are coming from a previous build, 3.5 Drive is already 2 years old, PSU more than that. Been only trying to lower the upgrade costs. I have already ordered a 2TB 2.5 Segate Firecuda to replace the 3.5 drive. Ordered an MSI Sea Hawk 1080 as well to replace the formerly cocked Zotac 1080 mini+h55. PSU for now its going to stay as even getting an SFX L psu would not help much as I'm going to be mounting the AIO of the GPU on top of the PSU so the SFX PSU cover will have no place.

When it comes to screen I do have a second HDMI cable going to monitor in the next room but I do prefer lying down a lot, console like gaming. Only use the desk when playing high precision competitive games.

Newegg is delivering my Asrock Itx and Shift case next Tuesday. Glad to see the builds coming out. Looks good.

Hopefully not to many people buying shift or shift X will be having issues with the riser cable as I do. Seen a thread on reddit where a few people are complaining about issues with the riser cable. Will see how it goes with the GTX 1080 but with the RX480 my system is stuttering badly, cant even watch a youtube video. Changing PCIE to 8X fixes the issue by around 95% of the cases. I know for sure it is the riser cable as I had exactly the same parts in Silverstone GD05 without no issues.

blaze, I have not had any problems with the rise cable in my Shift X, however, IF you do, Thermaltake makes an EXCEPTIONAL riser cable in several lengths that is reinforced. I have a couple I used on my Core P3 builds. These may help.

+1. Best looking Shift build I've seen yet!

Any update on the riser cable issue with the 1080? I am thinking of getting the same case with a 1070.

Also, how is the performance with the X62? Is there a major reason why you are planning to get a H55 to cool?

Works fine with the GTX 1080, with the RX 480 had issues which I know for sure the source was the cable as I had all the parts in a different case before with no problems. Probably a blower style GPU would be a better idea in this case but the Zotac 1080 mini barely throttles if any although a bit loud when it reaches 70C + (founders gpu def throttles more) but I know from reviews it doesn't throttle at all in larger cases. CPU temp is around 60-70 depending how heavy the game is with the CPU OCed, it can reach 75 under stress tests and stuff. I would use the h55 for 0 throttling at max OC and lower noise levels.

I love this build. It looks great. We need more Shift and Shift X builds on here, so I can get ideas for better layout on mine. lol. Take a look here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/WKhypg. I love that you went with the Kraken, it seems to work so much better than my H100. You did great. I like your lighting as well. Your build is SOOO much cleaner than mine. Just gorgeous man. Love it.

Where did you fit the 3.5" drive? I thought if you had one you couldn't use a AIO, and vice versa... :/ Nice build either way! +1

When I had both AIOs the h55 for gpu (before the gpu got cocked) and Kraken X62 I was about to replace the 3.5 HDD with a 2.5, temporarily I had it under the top cover. Now that I'm waiting for my refund to get another 1080 I've moved it back vertically on top of the PSU, zip tie ghetto mod but it looks quite clean and its stable. Going to add refreshed pics when I will get my new GPU and tweak a bit the cable management as well.

I'm an international student and will be doing back to Malaysia for the summer and I intend to bring my system back with me. I thought the Shift X would be better as it's "flat" compared to the conventional ITX cases.

Does the system fit in a luggage? How much does the entire system weigh roughly?

  • 28 months ago

Box is quite tall, just under 1meter and 7.5KG so I would assume a complete build would weight under 12kg depending on parts.

How was H55 AIO doing in that position ? Is there a proper mounting hole for 120mm rad there ? or how did you mount it ?

  • 28 months ago
  • 1 point

Because the tubes were quite stiff it was sitting there on its own but you can add some zip ties with screws to the back of the case the way I previously had my 3.5hdd. Would advise to use some heat sink on the vrms/ram if you are going to do it or get a gpu which has them covered and you can just remove the tip with the AIO. Going with something like the cracken G12 (will require to cut off some of the extra bracket) might not be sufficient without any vrm cooling as the gpu is air starved. I've just ordered an MSI 1080 hawk for 570 shipped so I need to figure out something for the 3.5hdd otherwise it will have to be replaced with a 2.5

No holes in the back but temp was topping at 65C compared to 84C throttling with the stock Zotac 1080 mini cooler. Not to mention almost 0 noise. Was sitting there pushed by the stiff tubes of the aio but you can use some zip ties to the back of the case with some spacing screws. Going to be doing it soon as my MSI hawk should be here next week.

Im going with this. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=11G-P4-6698-KR So the VRM should be fine. My current MSI 1080Ti Aero (blower) is hitting 80+ c and the noise is kinda loud.

Nice one, quite expensive. After you get it, I want to see if you come up with some better ideas on installing the AIO

  • 27 months ago
  • 1 point

Don't know if switching from ATX to SFX power supply would make some space for mounting 120mm rad on the bottom with 280mm mounted in the front at the same time or not. Otherwise, I would have to do what you did, zip tie it to the back above the power supply.

  • 27 months ago

I dint think it makes enough space, not even sure the tubes are long enough to reach the bottom, cause they are about 30cm

  • 27 months ago

Let me know when you get it cause I want to see your way on dealing with the AIO. Still waiting for mine and been thinking what is the best way to mount the AIO above the PSU

  • 27 months ago

Got the GPU some updated pics. Fitted the AIO only with some rubber feat between the sides of the case for now. Temps are not great but not bad. Gpu tops at 65C in superposition with a bit of OC +150 GPU and +300 Memory. Boosts on its own to around 2000-2050 constantly. CPU temp 60C , Ryzen 5 1600X OC @ 3.9 1.36V

it says this case supports SFX or SFX -L psu. i see you put a ATX PSU in it. how does it fit? Does the ATX PSU conflit with the bottom radiator?

  • 27 months ago
  • 2 points

It can fit ATX as well as long as it's not one if those monster ATX PSUs. You can't use that cover which goes on top of the sfx psu, that's it. Doesn't conflict with anything. Just get a standard size ATX and you will be perfectly fine, save some money and get a more silent psu at the same time. If you are doing custom loop you might care about every inch so then you need to do your measurements, otherwise the bottom in shift X can't be use for AIOs as the tubes of the gpu or cpu would not be long enough

Hey Man Nice Build you got going on here Looks Nice Done a Great Job Building in that Shift To!.+1 Looks Nice As, Quick Question Though How Is That PSU Doing..? I’d like to know since I’m thinking of buying It a bit later on it time for a gaming build.
