Very nice build, and great pictures. What made you go with the 1000W PSU?
Finally... A non-RGB build is featured. Well done sir.
Thank you! It is quiet to the point where every time the fan goes a little bit faster, it annoys me. I got used to the silent operation. Noctua's the best.
35C under regular use (no gaming). It's not really tucked though (as opposed to motherboards that have the M.2 slot on the other side) - it's ventilated pretty well.
Super quiet. No vibration at all. They keep everything nice and cool.
Cleanness is underrated. Superb work!
Beautiful build. So much power in such a small case. Do you think they'll make the V3 with see-through side panel as well?
That is sick sir.
Very interesting case! I've never seen that style before. How are the GPU temps? Does the vertical position make it a lot warmer under load?
That would be great to see how you improved your build and cable management (which is pretty sweet to begin with)!
That cable management under the desk. Beautiful!
Thanks man! I spent hours trying to make it look nice, but I feel like it could've been better, just not sure how...
That toilet paper!!! Epic.
Thank you sir!
Steelcase Gesture, cost me $932. Thanks! I love keeping things simple.
Lol. Yes, I guess you could say that. They make the best fans!
Fake. Search this image with Google Images, and you'll find tons of references to this photo. Wouldn't mind this setup at my bathroom, though.
...Possibly some light gaming.
...Possibly some light gaming.
Damn son... What type of "light" gaming are you planning to do? 2 player VR?
Beautiful build, though!
So you actually bought the 1080 Ti for $1200? Damn... And I thought those prices will stop gamers from buying high end graphics cards.
Looks dope man. Perfectly executed.
i7 7700 is locked, you can't overclock it.
I'd replace all the fans that came with your case with quality fans like Noctua has, and probably the CPU fan as well (I have the same CPU with Noctua NH-D15S cooler, and getting no more than 71C when playing BF1). I'd replace with these fans:
Front: 2 x Noctua NF-A14 PWM
Back: Noctua NF-F12 PWM
That's my current configuration with the same case. My 1050 Ti never gets above 65, and the CPU, as stated above, never above 71. Hope that helps.
Thanks! It was the same for me - I got inspired from someone else's build.
Beautiful , clean build. +1.
Nice build! Yeah... It's quite amazing how these chips remain relevant in today's world applications. I'm curios, what games does your friend play with this chip?
Yeah, I'm kinda surprised how good it is, even after 8 years.
I can relate. I work as a helpdesk tech, and my CPU is i7-860. It came out in 2009... Our clients have i7-7700 and NVMe SSDs. Oh well... As long is it's working.
Your dad is the head of IT, and he was running Vista? Damn son... Vista's support ended on April 11, 2017.
Cool build, though!
Very nice build! I like how clean it is.
What temps are you getting on the CPU while idle/load?
By the way, season 2 of the grand tour came out today! I saw the beginning of episode 1, and it looks awesome!
That's the coolest hack I've seen in Windows so far. Thanks for sharing!!!
Great build and great pictures! I'm thinking of building something very similar to this.
I love how clean your build is. Well done sir!
Very cool build! What temps are you getting on the motherboard and CPU?
Beautiful build +1
Really? How (I'm asking because I seriously don't know)?
Thanks for the info! What taskbar customization program are you using? Looks cool.
Do you see any serious temperature difference if you disable the 2x80mm fans while under load? I'd think no, since you have the CPU cooler blowing air right into them...
I love your build! Clean, simple, and fast. I'm considering building a very similar rig for my work computer. One question about the case fans: how did you connect them? I'm planning to use a microATX board with only 2 fan headers. I was thinking to connect 2x80mm fans to the 1st header, and 3x120mm to the 2nd header. However, I'm not sure if using 3x120mm fans on header is such a great idea, but I don't want to use a fan hub (Noctua NF-F12 PWM uses 0.05 A, and my motherboard supports 1 A for each header).
Very nice build. What temps are you getting on the CPU? It's interesting that you didn't put any exhaust fans, how does it affect the airflow? The only exhaust is coming from the CPU, as far as I can tell.
I have a quick question regarding the case fans. It looks like all 4 case fans are pulling air inside the case, but I don't see any exhaust fans. How does it affect cooling the motherboard and CPU?
Overheating? Strange... I overclocked my i7-7700k on air (NHNoctua - NH-U12S with 2 fans) to 4.8GHz, and it hovers around 80C when playing Battlefield 1.
Beautiful little build! I love it. What temps are you getting for the CPU and graphics card?
I apologize if I offended you.
No, but this computer isn't for me (it's for my father-in-law), there's no RGB in it (color scheme isn't RGB), I really didn't put a lot of "expense and effort" (picking red RAM and red graphics card were my only considerations, and that took 10 minutes), and he doesn't play video games (FPS doesn't matter).
Yes, I think RGB is a complete waste of money. Putting RGB in your computer is like guys who put a huge exhaust pipe in their car. I guess they're doing it to compensate something else ;)
Thanks! That's the fan controller that comes with the case. You can connect up to 7 fans directly to it, but you can't control the fans individually. Whatever speed you set your CPU fan to, that's the speed that all the other fans will spin (AFAIK).
Nice build! What temps are you getting for the 1080 Ti?
Not bad for first build. You chose some decent component that will last for years. What temps are you getting for the 1080 Ti?
A small recommendation: add some 140mm fans to the case, it'll help cooling everything down.
Nice build! I really don't dig the whole RGB thing. Does it give you more FPS? No. So why bother?
That 200mm looks awesome!
