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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Comment reply on jarc357's Completed Build: My First Rig

  • 50 months ago

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!!

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.
