Description

It took me quite a while to share my latest build - I started it back in the beginning of 2017 with an Intel SkyLake platform and an AMD RX 470 GPU. I haven't had a gaming rig for about 10 years and the configuration I started with was pretty much enough for my needs.

But then... I fell upon pcpartpicker, I saw all these fancy machines and the sickness got me damn quickly. I was on a very limited budget for the next year and also the prices in the GPU and RAM segments went crazy - so I was waiting quietly in my shell, putting every penny I could on the side until the chance to get the GPU I wanted got real (I snapped it on a deal for about 500 euro here in Eastern Europe in May this year) and also NZXT released this gorgeous case - like exactly for my taste.

I don't see any advantage in paying the price for an AIO, except the ease of build so I spared me a 100 bucks and took the H7 Quad Lumi - it's beatiful, and does a perfect job with my Ryzen 1700 keeping it at a maximum of 55 degrees Celsius while clocked via voltage offset of 0.0250 at 3.8GHz.

I also could have gotten a better and higher frequency memory I suppose, but I had that one from my previous build and didn't want to break the bank any further, I have already changed the MoBo, the CPU, the GPU, the PSU, the cooler, the case aaand the monitor :)

The rig performs as a beast and I have never seen thermal issues, actually never passed 55 degrees C on the CPU and 75 on the GPU. What really makes things amazing though is that marvelous (for the price) monitor.

Can't wait for your judgement and comments! Thanks!

How well does that card perform in game as far as temps go?

Well the hardest pressure I've thrown at it was Doom - 1440p @Ultra for about 5 hours straight - it never passed the target of 75 degrees C.

Very nice and clean build! I love this case :)

Thanks mate, the case rocks, challenging for a tower air cooler if you don’t follow certain sequence, but absolutely satisfying at the end.

Hah, I know, I have two of them :). I'm not a fan of AIO. Air coolers rock! I was building in D15s few days ago and for the first time I wish I had a full tower case :)

Great job,mate, very slick and clean. Love the dual-color combos at the last few pics. Waiting for the next one.

Nice, clean, compact build! +1 to the black and white interior which will fit any RGB light!

Great build! Can you tell me how you were able to fit the H7 with the top fan in this chassis? I'm having a tough time with it

  • 9 months ago

:) Hi and thanks! And yeah, that was the toughest part. You'll need a long screwdriver with magnetic top and steady hands for that :) I have mounted the top fan first, otherwise putting its filter in place would have been impossible and yes, according to me you need it it's meant for exhaust but when PC is turned off most of the dust comes from above. Then I mounted the H7 and attached the EPS cable and CPU fan cables on the mobo, basically all the connectors that are at the upper part (don't know what type of mobo you have) and screwed it on place with all screws except the one in the upper left corner. That last one was a nightmare - I dropped it like 15 times until I finally managed to tighten that little **** up. Last goes the rear fan. Hope that will help you!

Truly, thanks for the insight! I think with my asrock z370m, it's impossible for me to have the top fan and the H7 because of how high the CPU is seated on the motherboard. The H7 actually sticks out :(. I think I might buy a different cooler lol. That top left screw though >_<

Yep, I checked your MoBo and I saw what you mean, quite unfortunate, the H7 is a real gem.

Hey, nice build, but I was wondering how you got that “classified” thing on your ssd. I have the same sad and the original sticker is really ugly, like did you just peel off the sticker and put another one on or buy a ssd plate cover?

Hey,I bought a ssd plate cover, yes :) Cheers

Great build.. i had bad luck using air cooled gpus in this case because they get hot and loud so I switched to a water cooled gpu to make my pc quiet.

Thanks man! Never reached more than 75.0° C on the GPU actually - I guess the nano PCB really helps for that.

Great build! How did you get the four fans connected to the mobo? It has only 2 chassis headers, did you used splitters?

  • 5 months ago
  • 1 point

Hi, and thanks :) I am using the built in nzxt controller it has 3 headers, for the two front fans I've used a splitter

I just bought a Seasonic f+650 and vega 56 pulse. There are some posts about this psu and gpu combination give errors like crash in gaming and black screen etc. ( psu produced before January 2018). May I ask do you have any problems like this.

Hey mate, sure - nope, not in my experience. There was a period of time when I was getting random black screens and GPU fans spinning it turned out to be Asus Aura causing some conflicts. Uninstalled that crap. Never had issues after that. I play 1440p only and put quite some stress on that GPU.

Ok. Thanks for the info pal.

How thick is the vega??

  • 2 months ago

2.5 slot, quite thick actually, but it gets thinner from back to front, which makes it suck air easily and cools pretty well, regardless of the few mm clearance from the PSU shroud

i have the same setup & im thinking about that same card you've never had any kind pc crashes with 650w psu with vega because amd says a 750w requirement

Where did you pick up the paracord connectors?

Thanks mate! This Nano-PCB design and the bare part of the radiator really help in terms of cooling.
