I second NORD VPN. I've used them for years, they're fantastic
Awesome build! I'd like to see how you routed your cables!+1

And this is what you may want to invest in. I don't know if the parts I put together at the top are EXACT but hopefully it's close. As for your GPU I'd upgrade if you can afford it to something with at least 8GB of VRAM. Use your GPU as long as you can. I'd upgrade the PSU. And I put it in a case that's nice to build in.
Any questions let me know! Good luck!
Is your coolermaster 2 fans? 3 fans? 1 fan?
so david you already own parts? what do you own exactly?
Mine is a little over. But I added 6 Corsair Blue Fans with the commander Pro. Good luck man
would this Noctua work? https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/8pgPxr/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhd9l
great idea, but definitely will not fit. only 5.75" of clearance
I do have an old pair of those somewhere! I totally forgot about those brackets for the HDD
Thanks for the tip on the button. I did find something to solve that issue. We may have to use 92mm fans. 2x 120mm at the bottom won't fit for what we're buildling, and there is no GPU because Ryzen 3 2200 will be enough to stream movies :)
Thanks Imp as always. I know Ryzen benefits off speed of RAM and I'm aware what I have is only 2666mhz but do you think it'll be good to use? Trying to penny pinch at this point
yes as shown in the photo the bottom cutout is for the SF600 (picked up new for $80CAD) and we'll make two more with dust filters at the bottom. then I'll mount the HDD on the side next to the mobo.
could someone please help me with airflow in this case? should I put 2x 120mm fans at the bottom for intake and one at the back for exhaust? i'm unsure what to do for airflow purposes
that much i do know. but a custom case i know i can do what i want. so if maybe put two 120mm at the bottom for intake and a 120 at the back would that work as well?
where would you place them ace? thanks for the feedback!
I was looking at that one. My main concern is the layout and airflow. Just wanted to know if it makes sense to everyone
Nice looking builds! Congrats on feature Kwerpi! +2
that's a great idea sir, thank you. now i'm just trying to process how that would work and how it would be installed.
It's going to be a timely process but i do appreciate the feedback
More than a fair response, thanks Tets. I want to showcase the glory lol I want to do a water build, and make it pop in my office which is red/black (can always be painted; not the point) and I want to either incorporate my server currently resting in a Fractal R5. Only reason I say threadripper is because i do photo editing for my wife, music editing for myself, and gaming when I have the time.
Valid feedback, thank you very much
Found it! Thanks so much
Looks good man! +1
I want to make a water custom loop but i'm terrified lol
I like it. but he's pretty set on his case.........which i hate. it's outdated, and looks hideous
but likes it and it has lots of room for storage. it's more so airflow i'm concerned about
see what next gen offers
what cable did you use to extend the PSU to the back?
Icetorch thanks so much man. Will a dualcore hold up ok vs quadcore/ And do you think the stock CPU Cooler is enough in a wood case?
I'm getting paid to assemble. The guy I'm working with is making the case.
what mini itx would you pair it with? i'm trying to keep a lower budget, but still have enough power and heatsinks so the CPU doesn't overheat if consumer lets it run 24/7
even if I'm no OC
Gorgeous art man! Congrats on feature! +1
You're always a lifesaver man. I do like the usb dock. IT'd have to be >1" thick.
However would I need a splitter for anything? And i'm watching the power button video now
Could I purchase standoffs for the mobo to sit OFF the wood in this case?
I'm unsure how to lay the storage out in here. I'm also unsure what to do for a power button or USB ports? Buy an old case and part it out?
An SF PSU would be great but where do I put a power button? This is what we have drafted for a case. I'd be building in the lighter tone. The dark tone wood is only an inch thick. Maybe room for a power button.
I don't need to be a Warcraft player to appreciate this build! This is gorgeous and clean and dude, you did SUCH a good job! Congrats on the feature! +1

upgraded your storage and RAM. changed the case just .... because? no reason really. totally up to you. good luck
Yes thank you! lol I just found [this build] and he's only using 650W
any other case suggestions? or does that one do the trick for simplicity
true enough imp thanks. is the 140mm for intake
That's a good idea. I just tossed the 1tb in there for storage in general. students save files, now that you say that they're probably kb or mb lol
it's my own personal build. i dont' have a "budget". i already own the MSI Z390 Gaming Edge AC. for air cooling i may go with the be quiet dark rock 4
