Description

So this is My first PC Build, and it went fantastic! I got this up and running in less than two days, which may seem slow but I am proud of it. I mainly plan to use this computer for Gaming(BF1, Watchdogs, FPS, Strategy), mainly most of the newer titles and some old ones like AOE(Age of empires). On top of that I am also a Web Designer, so photoshop, and coding will be a breeze on this machine!

Cool build! How easy was the case to build in? I have been curious about that case for awhile. Also, good taste in older games.

Pretty easy actually, the only thing was the graphics card, as you seen in the picture is held up by a zip tie, because the screw wasn't long enough to lock it in. Also if I screwed it in it would bend the motherboard, and to screw the fans on the bottom you have to take off the case legs to screw it in. But its a really nice case, PSU is in the top left, honeycomb panel on the back, and a light up IO. Loved it the moment I saw it.

nice choice of case. It looks like your cpu cooler fan is faced the wrong way, it should be exhausting towards the rear exhaust fan or towards the top of the case. Also the fan you have on the bottom is face for exhaust when it should be used as an intake so air goes from bottom to top ^

Hmm didn't know that, will it have adverse effects?? All the fans looked the same i didn't know that? Thanks!

This case doesn't support front fans and he also doesn't have a radiator installed.

If you look at the fans, they usually have an arrow on the side indicating which way the air flows. Also the fans have a backside where the sticker will show the brand and "made in china", etc. That is the exhaust side. All you have to do is flip your bottom fan and the fan on your cpu cooler and you'll be straight. You could even take the fan in the back of the case off and put it on the bottom because that case promotes bottom-to-top air flow.

Then why did you say:

"You should install it so fan pulls from front of case and pushes air thru radiator towards rear exhaust"

lol. Nothing was referenced.

Also, still no radiator.

O ok, but now since its built how do i fix it cause i used thermal paste already and its stuck on there right? I can but its gonna be a tight fit because the LED wires, and the front IO cables are at the bottom of the motherboard where the fan is.

Ok I will definitely look into that thank you for the help

After Taking another look at the cooler there is only two ways it can face. Up towards the power supply or down towards the graphics card. Why? Because if I try to face it towards the front IO or the back fan/IO the CPU cooler fans won't line up with the screw holes.

If you are only trying to move the fan, it wont work as the cooler doesn't have mounts for the fans on its sides. You'll have to readjust the actual heatsink itself. You'll have to unmount the H7 and rotate it 90 degrees.

If you don't want to deal with all that, just flip the fan around so its exhausting air from the cooler instead of blowing on it. The back of the fan should be facing the top of the case this way.

I'd suggest just pointing the fan upwards(pull) into the exhaust, and maybe even using the rear case fan as an Intake

How is the keyboard and mouse working for you?

  • 36 months ago

It is actually pretty good, I got it off amazon. The keyboard is great changes to 3 different set of colors, and types great. (breathe effect as well). The mouse is ok, the RBG is cool but you cant use the mouse to scroll. The mouse was made out of very cheap material, it does have different DPI settings as well. It's doing the job right now, I'll see how it works with my upgraded internet, without lag. XD

How are those case fans working for you? I'm actually planning on moving my build to the InWin 303 like you and was looking for a cheap fans to cover those slots. 5 fans for $20-30 is great. Just hoping they work great too.

I really like the fans, at first I thought they were gonna be too cheap and not work too well. But they are actually great especially when you have Led's in your case it makes them look really cool. Also there pretty quiet, the only thing is that I had connected 2 or 3 of them together so I don't know if that would mess with the fan speed stats.

  • 36 months ago

Ok I'll keep that in mind. Maybe I'll get a fan hub to make sure it's all okay. What LEDs are you using?

Nice looking build! That case is so amazing. Hoping to build myself a new rig soon in the InWin 303 too.

Just out of curiosity; are the top 3 fans blowing air away from the glass & toward the back and PSU?

  • 36 months ago

they are taking in air to the back, where the honeycomb plate is

Any reason you got a K series CPU but a B Series motherboard? Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think you can overclock your CPU on a B series motherboard, you need a Z series.

My first build I got a non-Z series mobo and a k-series cpu and I didn't know any better.

Well I wasn't planning to OC because it puts to much stress on the computer components, and I don't have extra cash to fix it. Maybe in the future!

Did you have to update your BIOS with that motherboard?
