Yes. These were connected on the board headers with full pwm range accessible.
I used Noctua iPPC fans though now I am using Corsair ML Pros. Sorry for such a late reply.
See if any other 1440p panel with more screen size can be found. I've 0 complaints with this panel but having 27" or so is a plus.
This panel has 59Hz refresh rate. 144Hz is a real treat if you can afford it but go for 144Hz at minimum 1440p.
Going solid. Very thing bezels on them is a love. No glitch so far.
It is always worth considering but I did my calculations and it was way out of my finances.
Nah! When there is no market of Custom loop and importing that stuff would cost heck of bucks! ;)
Yes, it has a support bracket and vertical PCI expansion slots. But it does not have riser cable included in accessories
Yes. Just match the part no for easy identification.
I don't remember the exact distance figure between the panel and the card but vard hits 74c under load. Partly due to the fact that intake fans were set to run at low rpm. As such no airflow issue in the chassis.
hahahahaha. Marketing Gimmick.
Hi, one slot difference.
It all depends upon the airflow. I would like to have positive airflow hence more intake fans than exhaust or more RPMs on intake than exhaust. I was aiming for aesthetically pleasing looks hence my 4th config was what every one liked a lot. So, I stick with it and it is my favorite one as well. Temps were fine in all configs.
Not fully. It is the angle of viewing that would determine it. Some portion of led is covered.
Hehehehe! Thanks. :)
Thanks. Yes, you can change the color to your desire. I have run them on green color as well.
Thanks. Featured or not, I am very happy for my efforts put in the build. I am satisfied. :)
That would depend upon your requirement. If you are upto for gaming only, don't take this route.
Great. Few things for your consideration:-
Corsair has announced their RGB Vengeance RAMs
Rampage V Edition 10 is shipping with amp dac so you may not need ZXR
Asus Strix on Asus board would be sexy. Though, this is personal choice. Amp Extreme is among best out there
H100i? Why not H100i V2 or GTX?
Link to my previous X99 build. i still fell for it
Check my various builds and other unboxing pics there.
Definitely. On front I had two NF-A14 iPPC @ 3000 RPM fans.
After having used 1080s and now 1070s, I'm pretty much sure, I'm happy with the performance of these babies. Upto 2k, 1070 is a very handy choice.
Great. And are you building in same chassis with same board?
Temps on 1080s were reaching 90s easily and could not figure that out. Sold them and started my wait for their hybrid counterparts. Meanwhile, I upgraded or changed to X99 and certain portion of the funds saved for 1080 hybrids was spent in that.
Stock of 1080 hybrids was not settling and I waited like 2 months before giving up on them and bought two 1070 FTW Hybrids. No regret.
ML Pro has beaten Noctuas iPPC fans with a mere two degrees but noise is a critical factor. ML Pro are not that loud for that performance as compared to Noctuas.
Rainbow effect was for pics only. It was settled on dark blue accent which was really good.
Mounting the AIO on the front or on the top does not make any temp difference. At that time I had not modded the case hence, mounting the AIO on the top hid the motherboard top portion and RAMs as well.
Great, man. Loving it. Very nicely done. Last year alone, I changed my PC three times. lol
Excellent build. Colors are well coordinated. Simple yet elegant. Loving it.
Well, sky is the limit. hehehehe. Though, I agree, a simple, less expensive one would have done the job.
That's a good thing that you mentioned. As, it would be helpful for those who would be reading it in coming times. A good handy reference. Thanks for that.
It is just a thing with me that I like Asus boards and always buy their high end offering. Nothing much though.
Hehehehehe! This is not my first build. I've been playing with hardware since 1994. Know these things very well ;)
I'm typical in color liking for the build which is black/red. Hence, the colors.
Thanks for suggestions. I was just checking newly announced, world's first 144Hz refresh rate, GSync enabled 4k monitor for gaming. ROG Swift PG27UQ it is.
It is a nice idea. Will see to it.
TH AN KS. hehehehe
Thanks. In my local circle, one guy named this PC as "Radiator PC" and I kinda like that.
Thanks a lot for kind words.
I'm not really a fan of 4k but still, I am saving for ultrawide now. My current res is 2k but it ain't that much for gaming though.
Yes, display is the area needing an upgrade and it is on my wish list. Thanks for appreciation.
Thanks. Very powerful specs there in your build. Nicely done as well.
Thanks a lot.
Storage is not that massive as I have lot of media on it. Only 1.9GB remains. 64GB is overkill though.
Thanks. Actually, I did not want that much RAM for sure. I already have 32 gigs from my previous build and wanted to populate all DIMMs for better color coordination. Decided not to sell the 32 gigs kit for 8x4 gigs and just grabbed another kit of 32 gigs. Totally over kill but still achieved what I had wanted.
