Built this for a friend, going to be used for high refresh rate gaming and youtube, ;)
oof the AIO is umop ap!sdn. Can you post more pictures? +1
Creative ʇuǝɯɯoɔ! :)
the aio is that way since the tubing ran cleanest in that orientation and you can turn the nzxt logo off after in cam :), more pictures on the weekend.
all done :)
That is seriously the cleanest RGB I've ever seen. Really well done. And good to know he's using it for high refresh rates on Youtube. ;D
Appreciate it a lot, spent a while with the wiring for those fans, definitely worth the result imo.
I usually prefer uniform RGB, but this is one of the occasions I really like Rainbow RGB. That side on the GPU match's the Evolv X's strip so nicely. Would have loved to see more pics! But great work either way!
likewise, looks good in this circumstance
sweet jesus my eyes have gone blind. It's too good +1. The rainbow isn't overkill for once
Where did you get your evolv x?
amazon, got lucky :)
Blocks upside down ?
the orientation was ideal for our scenario
let me get this straight a $1,200 GPU to play 1080p? Well damn ... Overkill like a boss!! Looks great tho!! Can we get more pics pls like with some light possibly
sure thing, and the monitor choice was my friends :P
Probably the most tasteful implementation of RGB I’ve seen in a while. How did you get your hands on an Evolv X?
amazon, there were very few at the time
+1. Add some more pics and i'd call possible feature :)
appreciate it my dude
Wh didnt you go for the 570x?
Sorry i meant the case Corsair 570X, what made you choose yours over that,i dont know which i want for more rgb
570x is a bit cheaper and more avaliable, so whatever, its all opinion anyway :P
Gotta ask...I'm planning on using this case myself, but I have a couple of questions;
How are the airflow and cable management in this case? I'm a beginner and I want an easy-ish experience.
Where would one put the Hard Drives in this case? I don't see a drive slot in the front.
Ok, coming from a slightly more experienced builder. I have built in easier cases in terms of size and weight such as the fractal design define series. Although for its size and caliber this was in no means difficult. The installation should fairly simple and straight forward, with easy to remove fan/radiator brackets and cable ties around the back, everything is made to make the experience easier for you.
In terms of cable management, the components I was given to put inside looked as if the end result would be impossible to look clean, but thanks to the channels on the back and some panels to cover the cables, everything is flawless. No worries there.
The airflow is much improved in this case upon previous iterations and so it has been brought up the the standard of many good airflow designs, although I'm sure its clear that the case is designed primarily for aesthetics, you can feel very comfortable going for components that require large amount of cooling and active airflow. Basically the airflow is good.
In the basement area of the case there is space for you to install 2 full size 3.4 inch HDD and inside the back cabling area and cover panels is space for 9 SSD's. If you need more storage you can go to Phanteks website and order separate HDD cages which then attach to the front main area.

Hope I managed to help you out, Good luck :)
Does this case have enough clearance at the top for a push pull radiator configuration
I'm not sure about push/pull on the top, but you can definitely do it on the front for sure :)
Did you have to get a special mounting bracket to mount the AIO upside down onto the CPU or did it fit without one? Looking into a mitx build and want to use RGB ram but don't have enough to clearance with it standard
Step 1: Rotate 180 degrees
Step 2: Finished
Really love the z370-e mobo. Too bad its all out of stock
alot of these parts are out of stock because of the holidays, luckily when this was built everything was only just about to go out of stock :)
Damn that’s too bad. Nice build tho
What do you think of the monitors screen colors? I'm looking to buy a 240hz monitor and i want one with decent colors.
This build was for my friend, he will have more experience with the monitor than me, although I can talk from the perspective from when we used the pc after have built it, with his 240hz monitor there. I was surprised to see that the monitor was advertised as TN since I thought the colour representation was close to that of a IPS panel. This was in comparison to my asus 144hz TN monitor. I have spent a while trying to modify the colours of my TN panel to look acceptable with IC profiles and everything. The Alienware monitor seemed to have great looking colour out of the box, and i doubt you would have any issues with the colour on this monitor. Very impressive for a TN panel. Must be one of the best out there.
Thanks! I think im gonna buy the alienware.
Glad to hear it man, have fun
Have you had any problems with the GPU temps or problems with it in general
No issues, luckily this card wasn't affected by the 'first batch' artefact problem. If you buy a 2080ti now, then you will most likely not be in danger of getting a damaged card.
Wow!!! I'm loving the whole look of this built. Really impressed. I'm about to venture on my first built soon and I may have to mimic this one. Great job!!!
Appreciate it and good luck!
saw your post on the quad sli build but yours is better
means alot, thanks man :))
Hi, any problems with replacing fans on x52?
i have read, that they won't spin until you ran CAM
I want to say this is an amazing build and has inspired me to build a similar one to this. Though what is that keyboard man? I've been searching for a TKL keyboard that has good switches that looks decent.
First of all thanks, I'm also glad how it turned out :). The keyboard is a corsair k65, but has recently been swapped out for a logitech g pro, which seems to be better.
I only see 500GB of storage on here is this a mistake?
not a mistake, my client only wished for 500GB upfront, but knew that they would most likely purchase another m.2 in the near future.
you build PCs for other people? nice.
Gpu bracket, prevents excessive gpu sag
