Took my #2 spot for the case build very well done! looks really sharp with those etching on the glass!
I wish you the best of luck!

Good! Hopefully the high temps and random cut offs didn't damage the cpu in any way.
Yeah the over heating is because you have three intake fans in the front of the case and two exhaust fans on the same rad. You need to fip the two fans in the rad on the inside of the case so they arent fighting each other
You would have to buy it separately. I ended up buying a three pack for the back and two on the top.
Nice thing you did there.
Nice to see another 500D SE build. I would get some extensions for those cables. I found that the thicker ones will look a lot nicer and were easier to get to stay together.
Thanks! I just wish I had a better camera. I was debating if I should take the pc outside for pictures but it was raining three days straight and I didn't want to wait to play games on it.
No problem! I would get a normal board for a pc set up. I went simple with my build with all in one cpu cooler and the rest all cooled. That way I don't have to worry about water or special components.
No motherboards ship with water. That block is there for custom loops and fittings.
I noticed that right away. I should've gotten the RGB one for my build. Looks great!
It looks like you have a ram in an incorrect spot. Refer to your manual to take advantage of the full range. I believe with Arous you should out the sticks in the highlighted slots so there would be an empty space in between.
Thank you very much! I am very happy with the results.
I had to practically stand on mine to get mine to shut as well lmao. I cant imagine how you got the extra power for the graphics cards though. There was no room for another cable for me. Very tricky but you did a great job!
Very clean. I would post more pictures.
Finally another high end 500D SE build. Probably going to take the top spot. Nice build!
1440p is a lot nicer than 1080 and the 100hz good enough for most games maxed out with the 1080ti. I think he made a good choice. I have a 1440p 144hz 27" but I can only max out older games with that refresh rate. Also a 23.6 in monitor is a little small for games. The standard for monitors is 27 in now adays.
Aside from the mistake of being on 4.8 instead of 5.74.. Your GPU is sagging a lot and you might want to consider tightening the screws holding it to the case while pressing upward slightly. If that doesn't work then I would buy a support bracket. Looks like you are putting a lot of strain on that slot.
I was about to say the same thing. I think pcs looks a lot nicer when there is not a lot of empty space. I spent too much time working on that with my build.
I would flip all of your fans around so that you are in taking from the front of the case and exhausting out the back. Right now you are in taking with one fan from the rear and exhausting it though the radiator in the front. This should help your temps
Yeah he needs to intake some air. I would swap the front two.
Very compact nicely done!
Oh is see what you mean. Those fans came with the 360mm aio corsair cooler
Mine is very heavy as well. Ill have to make a loop for mine in the future.
Very nice! how did you like building in the 500D?
The 500d RGB case is the same thing as the SE. Should come with 3 LL120 series fans and a commander pro. Good luck on your build, Slash8675! :)
I got them from V1 tech :)
I built my L desk by hand and I feel its much nicer than any Ikia fake wood desks.
The i cue software allows you to change the color on each led. So if you really wanted to go crazy you could have each fan have 12 different colors. It is a really neat software.
It would be very close but in theory it should fit. My gpu is 300mm and there is just over 2 inches of space between the gpu and the radiator fan.
All of mine are 120mm. It provides great cooling with my chip at 5.1. It keeps it at room temp or just above. Changing two fans to 140mm wouldn't make a difference in cooling.
I have not tested this so I cant say for sure
I feel like it would too close and not allow enough air to get to the card. I would pick up a CableMod Vertical PCI-e Bracket – 2 x DisplayPort – BLACK and mod the case to have a really nice looking vertical GPU build.
You don't need that stuff at all but I just added it since I like the look of it. Building a pc can go two ways. In my case I went with performance and looks. I picked parts that all go nicely together with looks in mind. If you went with pure performance you could have the same specs as my pc but easily save 400$ or more.
Nice to see another grey and black build. Great job!
Yeah I only see the 1 Gpu and a 140mm AIO
Its also for dust. Having a positive pressure in the case will help you out a lot when it comes to cleaning every so often. The front of the case is designed to take in cool air so it should help out. Having one intake from the rear pulls in heat from the GPU since some of the air exhaust out the back.
Thank you very much! It is tough getting all of the stuff to fit in the back and still have the door shut.
I build in the same case and I spent close to 8 hours on just the cables. I had a lot more drives and cables than this build though and I wanted it to look really clean. For builds with less drives and fans it should only take an hour or two to cable manage. I would get lots of cable ties like Hemi said.
Awesome to see another 500D SE build on here. Nicely done!
Right now you have the rear as the only intake and the rest are exhaust. I would look at the fans again since you have them mixed up. The fans intake from the corsair sticker side and exhaust from the side with the exposed wire and X brace. The fans also have an arrow pointing the direction of airflow.
I would swap your front and rear fans so you can achieve positive air flow in the case. It also would help out with temps since you are pulling hot air from inside to cool your rad.
This is the first ITX build I really like. Everything is done so well. Great Job! +1
I believe there is a way to get the ram to light up red white and blue with the lights at the same time like your AIO cooler. Might be a nice touch. Nice build +1
You could get some 3m tape or buy a different strip that has a magnetic backing on it. That's what I did with my build. It would look a lot cleaner without those zip ties as well. Everything else looks really good.
CableMod PRO ModMesh E-Series G3 / G2 / P2 / T2 Cable Kit. This is the kit that would work with your psu. Any time! I think the Black and White one would fit the build perfectly
