+ Total (United States):
This is now my 2nd (personal) build.
I know it won't last long like this, but it looks good for now. Planning an open loop currently, just gotta get the Mrs. on board.
Disclaimers: I'm not the best at explaining things. This is my first time using a real camera. PCPP won't let me rearrange my photos so I can't organize them :(
Couple of mods I did: (I put pictures in of them if you want to see)
280mm acrylic fan shroud for the cpu rad because the Silent Wings are amazing fans, just not made for radiators.
The back of the case has a 140mm spot but I have a 120mm rad so i sealed the gap with a 120mm to
140mm acrylic sheet so that the airflow is more focused.
Also on the back left edge of the case there is a quite large lip and as you know fans don't blow air straight. When I would game for 30 mins plus, that lip would catch the hot air from my gpu rad and heat up the case and make it harder for my components to stay cool. So I bent a piece of aluminum and stuck it on there so it deflects the air straight out of the case.
You might think that I'm a little OCD with the airflow and temps but just by doing these simple mods I was able to bring my average temps down 15 degrees. Also, I love doing this kind of stuff so I constantly think of little things to do to my pc so I don't have to convince myself not to build another pc.
Soon to be mods:
Lcd panel inside the case for CAM/hardware monitoring software. Custom loop (hopefully) Who knows with me....
I am more than willing to answer any questions you guys have. Thanks!
