Description

I built this specialized for VR gaming and other High-ends games and also I never really seen anybody build a system with Asus Maximus VIII Formula RGB Mobo. So i gave it a try. Clearly you can tell, It's based on Asus Rog. That classic black and red color theme that most people goes with lol. I didn't overclock the system, because i don't really think i need the extra performance. Plus I'm not a hardcore gamer.

Noctis 450 is a beautiful case. It's a perfect case to hide all the ugly cables. Plus it looks very Futuristic.

Is it just me, or is only one of the STRIX LED's on? Solid, overkill build :P, this is all anyone could ask for. How silent is the STRAFE RGB? Do you have any other keyboards to compare it to?

  • 48 months ago

The GPU leds goes on and off. It is overkill, the fact i don't really game that much. lol The Strafe Keyboard is pretty quiet. I previously using a wireless keyboard, so I'm still trying to get use to not being able to hear my loud typing noises.

I'm thinking of getting this case but have some concerns. Since i'm building a similar build, i was wondering if you can tell me a few things. First off, what led strips are you using? the Hue+? and are you using 4 strips or 2 strips? how did you wrap it around the panel window? to get the rotating effect nicely around the window. Lastly are you able to see all the components nicely or does it cut off?

  • 48 months ago

Yes I'm using Hue+ with all four strips that came with. Its kinda hard to tell you how I got all the leds in placed nicely. I'll take some pictures with the windows off for you to get a better look at it, and you can figure it out from there. If you are using the same GPU as I have (980ti OC Asus Strix), its gonna cover up the end of the GPU but its really not a big deal to me since that's how the case is designed and you can still see the GPU logo lights. Overall the build came out pretty nice. Maybe in couple months i'll water cool the system but as for now I'm pretty satisfied as is. Hope you find my answers helpful lol. Good luck on your build. I'll be looking forward to see your final result!

the hue comes with all four strips? i need to check my box i thought it came with only 2 and had to buy the other two. OK so from looking at the picture it seems that the right strip is kinda hanging right?

  • 48 months ago

Yeah mine came with 4 strips. yeah just let it hang it like that.

  • 48 months ago

does it give off a nice rotation like when you sue the rainbow effect you can see it go around or that dim out a little on the hanging side?

  • 48 months ago

It looks perfect rotation to me. Shouldn't have to worry about it :)

Oh yeah one more thing, since the 980ti Asus Strix is quite heavy. It will sag, so I'll also teach you the tricks i did to make my GPU stay straighten. You first need to put in the GPU on to the motherboard and then place a Hard drive bay (Slot) under-need of the GPU. After you did that you then place something small(Eraser with USB taped together) on the Hard drive bay where you can see the end of the GPU kind just hanging and shove that sucker in. Yeah I know it sounds kinda Ghetto but to me its fine and it does the job. You don't have to worry its not gonna show. Remember this is based on the GPU(980Ti Asus Strix) I have and the Noctis 450.

hey thanks! I do have the same GPU so this is extremely helpful! so you mean to have an erase and a usb taped together like stack up and then put it under the GPU? hey along as you cant see it it doesn't existed lol

  • 48 months ago

Yeah, you kinda need to lift the GPU on the end while putting it in. If it lift your GPU alittle too high go find something around your desk and just change out something small and tape it together. Kinda just measure and mess around to get it to perfect height. Of course you not gonna have the same USB and an eraser as me but you get the point.

Yes, I would say I would only play a game for 3 hours max a day due to the fact I'm working 6 days a week from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, I barely have the time to get to play on it. "Why I bought two if I'm not gonna be using both for most of the time?" because why not? Lol If I do play games I want to be able to hit the limits on every high-end games that are currently out or being made at this time of the year. It is truly over-killed for daily regular usage, but it's what we called future proof.

Awesome build man! Love the Red and Black Theme

If you dont mind me asking; What are all those fans infront and on the top of you case? I really like the glow of the outside red and inside black

  • 46 months ago

Thanks man! Those are Thermaltake Riing fans. Front I have "RGB" Riings which comes in three in one pack and the 2 radiator fans are red Riing fans.

Np man! / http://pcpartpicker.com/product/KP648d/thermaltake-case-fan-clf038pl12rea is that the one you are using?, if it is are they any good?

  • 46 months ago

It is correct! They only looks nice in my opinion, i wouldn't use it for radiators. It's pretty weak compares to Corsair SP fans. If I were you I'll go with the RGB Riing pack, because if you so happened to want to change the color theme in the future all you need to do is change the colors of the lights. I would love to see your build! Good luck and stay nerdy my friend! >:)

Hi YuhsienLin, Congrats for the nice build. I'm trying to make a build like yours. Can you please tell me which case fan you are using for front & rear and for radiator? You've six(06) pieces fan in your casing, Corsair SP120 (2pack) = 2Nos per pack = In Total 4 pcs SP120 and 1 pcs AF140, 1Pcs AF120. AF series mainly built for using in front & rear part of the casing. Whereas SP series for radiator. So my question is why SP in front & rear and AF in RAD? Thank You :)
