Sorry for the late reply but motherboard's been holding up just fine. Runs my 8700k at 5.1 ghz daily for the past 2 months or so without any problem.
They require their own software to control the lighting. Corsair's iCue software is the only thing that can control the lighting on them.
That aio has a removable plate for the logo so you can turn it any way you like. That's such a great feature that doesn't get appreciated nearly as much as it should.
Sweet build, nice and simple. +1
So far it seems great! I haven't had to do any special cleaning on it so far. I do dust once a week or so because I like the room clean. In terms of rigidity, at first I was hesitant to put more than the weight of my arms on it but that has kind of disappeared and now I'm less careful with that and just use it as any regular desk. It has shown no signs of bowing or warping, I tested that with one of those level bars last week just out of curiosity. So yeah, pretty happy with it and all my initial concerns of bowing seem to have disappeared. I do however keep a spare leg for the middle, just in case it does start to bow down the line.
Thanks for the reply! That's actually not a huge deal as that card would probably get way too hot in such a case anyway. I'll keep it in mind if I do decide to get this case :)
Love the all black look! +1 for the clean cabling and custom cables as well.
I love your build! I'm surprised to see the Strix fit into this tiny case. How hard was that to pull off? I'm looking to build a 2nd system that will share gpu with my main system but that's a strix 1080ti. I'm wondering if there's enough clearance to put that in the Rocket.
This build looks really good! I love the purple lighting as well, went with that for my personal build as well.
Tbh, it's fine! It shows how good this case is for cable management when you don't even need to tie down cables for it to look presentable.
Nice build! Love the colour coordination and simplicity. I'm surprised at how well your cables trained into place. Do you happen to have a picture of the back side of the case?
It's not just that. I'm not a fan of the Crucial Storage Executive software, it's slow and unresponsive and I think that shouldn't be the case for one of the more popular SSD lines out there. Furthermore performance is sometimes very hit or miss. In my opinion a good product is only as good as the complete package. For me, it didn't live up to my expectations. While it's good SSD overal, it's not perfect and I believe that people should know the full picture of using a product and not just the first impressions. Now that I'm typing this I realize some of my points aren't in my SSD review so I'll update that.
Thank you for the kind words. Interested to see how your build turns out! :)
It's actually better than I expected. My dad plays on a 1440p 60 hz monitor that's also a work monitor. With vsync he locks at 60 fps and has enough overhead in terms of GPUusage for at least a few more years. Newer games are being limited by the 8 gigs of ram and relatively low clock speeds of the 4770. The upgrade should last him for a good 3-4 years before having to touch the GPU.
Haha that's awesome! Thanks very much for checking this one out :)
Just like your V1 build, this one's gorgeous! Cable management is something we can all aspire to. Love the lack of rainbows in your PC however I am of the opinion that a bit of well placed colour can make a system look even better. Nevertheless, hoping to see more builds like this!
I'm in love with this build! Pictures are top notch as well, lighting and framing is on point. Please build more PCs!
That's a great looking build!
One question about the R6 though. I'm looking to get one but the fact that it has no psu shroud cover bugs me. I was wondering how big the opening is in the front where the cover fits. I have a cover left over from the Define C and I was hoping I could fit it in there. Otherwise I'd probably look into the Define S2.
Such a good looking build! Part selection, cable management and aesthetics all on point.
This build looks great! The cable management is amazing as well as the overall look of the case and your setup. I hadn't seen that approach to using the velcro straps in the define C before. By default they span over 2 horizontal loops but this looks so much cleaner.
Beautiful build and very nice looking setup!
No. I have the Define C with window and a strix 1060. There's around 2 cm left between the card and the fans. I had to mount my 240 mm rad up top as exhaust. It's a bummer but then again the strix cards are ridiculously big.
Here's a pic of how mine fits: https://cdn.pcpartpicker.com/static/forever/images/userbuild/224761.476d57986ed1a767755275428ef0897a.1600.jpg
Thanks, what are you planning on building?
That's something I hadn't thought of yet. Thanks!
The prices listed on Newegg and Amazon don't match pricing in the Netherlands. Was too much of a hassle to do pricing per part manually. Ram cost me 135 euro for the kit.
As for the sub, it's cables aren't long enough to reach the pc from under the desk. I would want to put it under the desk on the left but I sadly can't.
Very nice build. I recently built something very similar and will add a 1060 6gb to it as well. If there's one thing that I could critisize it would be the AMD logo orientation on the cooler. If you pry off the black ring you can unscrew the bracket (not fan or anything, so no need to disassemble it) and turn it so the logo's on top!
I found a great deal on it. Got it for 70 bucks!
It's a card I had left over from my old PC. It's getting upgraded asap.
Great looking build!
I spent around 500 euro to build it. However the GPU and storage was pulled out of an older PC so those were "free" :)
