Feeling your Razer +1! Looks pretty much like an enthusiasts build...as its got overkill written all over.. that said amazing components wish they'd got more room to breath.
Please share as I'm always after a good deal myself
Well done for attempting a PC build +1..great components ...next task is cable management
As for testing intense games...get ready to play on low settings :D
You mean for the price paid?
Great to see another Enthoooooo!! +1 for the case.
Change the 1x 200mm fan for 2x 140mm ...much better air flow...did you get free phanteks 140mm fans?...they do an excellent job
With regards to benchmarking the i5 processor appears to be the bottleneck...for intended use its more than adequate.
Nice case. Like the temp monitor +1 for picking it.
Welcome to proper gaming +1....the head light "why so serious,son"
Check this out
Go watercooling. Best option as these babies run hot. Full tower case. See this
The wow factor!
Very neat +1. Love seeing crossfire build.
Same config as mine. Interesting build. Love seeing crossfire builds +1. Although I'm running mine on the AX760i. What are your temps like in there?
Wow 390x x2. Green with envy lol
Nice to see crossfire builds +1
Thanks mate. You are right, not many full custom loops on PCPP
Thanks....Phanteks designed this case for that purpose and they did an excellent job. You may have noticed there's another 240mm radiator at the bottom with push/pull config.
Well spotted :D
Not checked yet, will update as soon as I get it
Really like the fact that the heat rising is sucked out. Very interesting layout.
That's right, I can only manage 4.3Ghz on my H97M-Plus and OC'ing options are VERY limited.
I'm sure I saw your youtube video. Where did you get the phanteks velcro straps?
i7 is an overkill, 16GB RAM is also overkill......your statement made me chuckle...made my day. You are right though people are quick to judge.
Well done...very tidy build.
Finally nice to see an all watercooled system +1 for keeping it neat...no mega huge loops...excellent color scheme...we should have a photo in pure darkness.
I will be getting the Riing in m new setup, love how the led's light up
Looks frosty with so many fans in.
Lower temps aid component longevity.
Some 90o or 45o fittings will make things neater (less bends)..consider where you'd want to have them. ...well done for attempting a custom loop. Performance improvements are noticed more on full load, I've shaved off 45o celsius off my R9 290X on full load and 12o celsius idling
Nice color scheme too..very neat
My thoughts exactly...WEEP
Tight squeeze at the top but well done for being able to fit all that in there and neatly executed. Persnally, I'd rotate the CPU rad 90o to the left; better air flow, although i appreciate that'll have some effects aesthetically.
It'll benefit from that..overall great parts picked.
Gaming on a stock cooler??? hmmmm...what you playing, angry birds? You don't always need to overclock to get a better cooler. The Cooler master Hyper 212 Evo is a good entry level.. excellent price to performance ratio.
How I love In win cases...green with envy!! haha
If that works efficiently thumbs up...nice build
It should do to keep the temps in the case lower especially for your motherboard. In my current set up I tried sticking in a 120mm rad at the front and have an intake from the back and noticed a 10 degree celsius rise in temps on my chipset heatsink.
After long hours of gaming temps will rise eventually due to heat build up not exhausted effectively.
Thanks for the insight. I've got a watercooled 290X so will defo do some measurements first.
I'm just saying maybe gamekaze wants to wow viewers...it's jaw dropping! haha!, considering he's taking his time.
why wouldn't you?
If you've got a little extra to spare, go for the Noctua NH-D14 instead.. much better overclock heat handling even with just one fan. The colours though might put you off haha!
What kind of temps are you getting as presumably warmer air is being blown into the case?... considering this case or the Phanteks evolv
Wow! You should get a t-shirt, calender and a badge from Noctua!
I would go for the Industrial PPC ones with PWM anytime though for a dark theme. I got the 3000rpm ones run at less that 800rpm.
Be mindful though, the 140mm fans may not push as much air if the perforated openings on your case block the fan blades round the circumference...you'll experience less air flow. I had to swap mine to 120mm for better air flow.
But all the same... I like how the fans stand out! Good job picking that case to accomodate so many fans....it's got to be UBER QUIET and MEGA FROSTY!!
All those components without a GPU.....I think we in for a surprise...watch this space :D.
A Titan Z perhaps?
Great choice not getting the MBP (overpriced machines - sold mine to build too)..I like your case choice too...looks very airy.
It will certainly assist with that too. :D
Reference AMD R9 290X
Cable management perhaps...that should improve air flow ;D
You'd be surprised! ;D
The i7 4790k has 4 cores and 8threads compared to 4 cores 4 threads of the i5. Having 8 threads will handle more tasks simultaneously if the software run is designed to make use of hyperthreading.
The i5 will handle it but in theory the i7 will do it much faster.
You should get a 2 pairs of 45 deg angled tube fittings, will prevent those huge loops in the case. that's if your kit allows that.
cable manage behind the MB panel, may be worth changing the orientation of your PSU so fan faces bottom of case.
what's preventing the rad fans to be inside the case/
