I think the people don't want to spend as much time taking the time to comment. They might look at some builds, but won't like or comment.
You're welcome. Comments on here aren't as much of a thing as I used to notice them to be.
Amazing use of the EVGA powerlink. I used it with my old build, amazing piece of hardware for use cases like mini ITX.
I'm working on getting one of my old portable HDDs as a portable game drive soon.
I don't have room for any more actual HDDs in my case any more but do have two just sitting around. Lol.
It was a major jump in performance for a recovery, but I love it and the performance I now get with the amount of work I put into it.
This one I ended up going a bit more for aesthetic, but it is absolutely amazing now.
Indeed. I got an SSD later on and the initial general performance is near the same, but obvious actual read and write speed is SO much nicer on my SSD.
Understandable. Glad to hear the feedback. But yeah. The surge was not very fun to deal with at all.
Looks amazing. I have to say, this is the second build I have seen on here outside of my own, https://pcpartpicker.com/b/8bP323, that features the 011 Dynamic as a Stormtrooper build. Cable management is clean and the coloring of the 590 is on point. Keep up the great work, hope it stays as a good build for you as long as you need it.
Amazing build. I too made my build a Stormtrooper build once Razer put out their officially licensed Stormtrooper gear. Corsair LL fans look good.
This would work with your current setup with a simple case swap just as I did. Lol. I literally also did a Stormtrooper build with the 011 Dynamic but have less white parts. For now.
All you would have to do to make it work would be to swap the parts carefully as the rad and pump/distro block setup come pre installed and need to be removed with a small hex set as the entire bunch of EK stuff uses. The hard part is to put in the distro block you'd have to drill out the two rivets on the front panel underneath the front glass.
The literal only tweak I can think might offset using that is the fact that it supports the Maximus X motherboard and yours is the XI. All that might be wrong is a tube or so, like mine was even though what I swapped was the GPU block and nothing else. Just depends upon if you order extra tubing and feel like cutting it to size if need be. I did so with just soft tubing as it was easier and cheaper and makes it so I can get to my RAM easily.
TL;DR, I did a Stormtrooper build as well and congrats on your first build.
Thank you. Yeah, I remember seeing the loop in an old video of JayZTwoCents forever ago as I was looking into water cooling and in that moment I new I could easily use it as I already had my waterblock which was aluminum and my motherboard was supported. Took a lot of work, but I think it turned out very well. Hardest part was swapping the cases. Lol.
It looks great. Amazing use of the EVGA powelinks to for sure help with cable management as you're running SLI. I too used one in my build which is a total Stormtrooper theme if you wanna check it out.
I got the Power Spec Liquid Gaming case off of Amazon and swapped the case to have the Lian-Li PC-011 Dynamic in white just as you do. An amazing build if I do say so myself.
Amazing build. I myself am working on a stormtrooper build with the release of the Strormtrooper accessories put out by Razer near May The Fourth this year and found you build as I just got the MSI Aero 1080 Ti and was looking at other builds for it.
You're welcome. Best of luck with your build.
Back wall to front wall it is right at 13.5 inches (342.9mm), from back 80mm fan to front fans it is barely over 11.5 inches (292.1mm) and with a full ATX motherboard I still have around 2.5 inches (63.5mm) space before the fans. I am proud to provide an measurements as PCPP won't. Lol.
Lol. The main details are just for the quick and easy once over look at my PC. You asked, I answered. I don't run many benchmarks so I'm not the exact kind of numbers guy for my PC yet, yet, but I can for sure tell you how it all works aesthetically and physically as you asked. You're welcome, I hope I provided enough information for you and anyone else asking about this case.
(skip to the bottom after the blank line for short and simple version.) I 100% understand where you are coming from. I literally couldn't find any great in depth reviews for it online anyways but was really interested in dual chamber cases and this one caught my eye too well to not upgrade to it. The dual chamber design is great, providers better thermals theoretically having all the extra things that don't need to be 100% directly next to the motherboard in a separate location to provide an easier airflow space and especially better looks too. The glass side panels are only annoying in the fact that the thumbscrews are in these anchors that also screw into the case that you have to make sure and not lose the rubber gromits for, and the anchors themselves can sometimes come loose. I appreciate the dust covers on the top, PSU side panel, and bottom. The only thing about the bottom fan placement is since the conserved space making it a very thin dual chamber case, you absolutely can not fit fans in the bottom properly with any ATX motherboard. Also, PCPP lists the case as having 0mm room for the PSU and graphics card length as just being off. I can assure you my Titan X with the EVGA powerlink fit in there just fine, and it fits any normal ATX PSU. I love this case as you can fit 240 or 280mm radiator up top and up to a 240mm radiator up front, and I would assume you could possibly use another 240 even on the bottom if you used a micro ATX or mini ITX motherboard to allow for such radiator and fan spacing. The brushed metal on the front panel with IO looks amazing, and also the front panel provides a full 15mm breathing room for those front fans so airflow is completely dependent upon if you switch out those OEM fans and what you switch them out for. If you have any other questions, ask away. I know its a lot, I've spent a lot of time managing my PC I just don't have the money to do any more upgrades right now, lol.
Overall, to build in this case is easy so long as you be careful with the rubber spacers on the side panel and understand you can't properly fit any fans in the bottom of the case if you are using an ATX motherboard. Otherwise this case is an amazing dual chamber case and priced in a decent budget but slight enthusiast mark.
Crazy stuff dude. I was literally watching all of your videos today as I appreciate my first build, but really just want to go smaller. Other cases like the Corsair Crystal 280X were looking good, I like the idea of dual chamber cases but at micro ATX I would rather go a little bit taller rather than wider, and that's where looking into the NZXT H400 came in. Anyways, so I've been looking into the H400 and want to go from a Titan X with an 8700 to hopefully a Titan XP with either a 9700k or 9900k.
Lol. Yeah. I even got a bit of flak for it from the only PC building friend I had as he has been building for a while and doesn't even overclock. I don't overclock now but hope to do so eventually so I just have it.
The original cooler I had did not fit in the new case I bought (a Cooler Master Hyper T2) and I needed to buy a new one, so I kinda did just go overboard and bought the CLC for aesthetics and upgradeability.
SLI isn't near as good as NVLink and its a great card but really starting to get dated with the release of RTX. If I could find another card for the same price I would probably go for it, but at the very least I would need to upgrade my powersupply no matter what I do.
razer.com/downloads I don't have much anything but the Naga Chroma mouse that is Razer (and an extra mousepad) but I couldn't find many other good backgrounds and found that one whenever I went to download Synapse.
For sure. It runs great and is honestly the only bottleneck of my build for now. Lol.
Found it on Facebook marketplace. I at first had a terrible Quadro K5000 that I bought for $300 simply so I knew it would run CAD programs great and just do okay gaming. Once I saw and immediately bought the Titan X I returned the Quadro.
Thank you. Personally I would give the overall look to the Rosewill Culinan PX case. I at first had a TERRIBLY picked Apevia X-Dreamer 4 mid tower case. Fit everything and had a nice 200mm fan on the side panel but it just looked bad. It looked okay at first, but then finally once I had it all together and in my room it just looked bad. I do think the price for everything was still a bit bad, but at the very least I got a bargain on that Titan X. (Link for the original case https://www.amazon.com/WALI-Premium-Adjustable-Capacity-GSDM001/dp/B0779JSRH5/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1543702036&sr=8-16&keywords=monitor+desk+mount )
I had to switch from the stock cooler anyways and its quieter and just looks nice. I can't overclock now, yes. It is slight overkill but adds to the aesthetics and upgradeability factor.
