Description

I wanted a powerful computer that I could take with me on the go. I ultimately landed on the TU150 from Lian Li since other SFX cases were too small for comfort. I also got a great deal on brand new 3600x (250 CAD before tax) and 2070 Super (599 CAD before tax) so i jumped on that combo.

Why did you go with that bulky air cooler in such a small case. When building this were you worried that it would not fit?

I checked the clearance on Be Quiet!'s website and it seemed like it would fit. In reality it did fit but it's very tight and the fan touches the Ram. Any RAM with taller heat spreaders won't fit. I was more worried about thermals and picked this cooler over the Hyper 212 which i had initial picked out.

This is the exact build I'm looking to make. I already have a 500W PSU do you think it will be enough juice? Also how many drives can you fit?

The cooler is impressive, I was looking for a small case that could fit beasts like that.

Edit: also how much noise does it make? my current build is very noisy. Also did your motherboard need a bios update?

I think you can get away with a 500W PSU as long as it's from a reputable branded. The estimated wattage for my build is 403W however I've overclocked the GFX card, RAM, and CPU (auto boosted only) and have 4 x 120mm fans running without issues. Since space is limited, I'd get a modular PSU and note that it needs to be an SFX/SFX-L form factor. Another issue is that the cables that came with my EVGA PSU were too short and I had to get an extension kit from Cablemod to have enough slack to route through the back and top of the case to achieve a clean look. The case can fit 2 x 2.5 inch SSDs or 1 x 2.5 inch SSD and 1 x 3.5 inch HD.

The case is rated to fit a Dark Rock 4 Pro (or any cooler up to 165mm) so if can definitely fit massive CPU air coolers. Make sure to check the height first before buying a cooler.

During gaming the 4 x 120 mm case fans are audible however it's not loud enough to be noticeable if your game audio is coming through the speakers / headphones. When everything is quiet and the case fans are at 50% its very noticeable and annoying. The Antec fans I used are definitely not quiet and I've been mulling over swapping them with 4 x Silent Wings 3 fans. The CPU cooler uses 1 x 140mm Silent Wings 3 fan and it's inaudible even at max RPM.

My board needed the bios flash to work and I got that done at a local computer store, note that this motherboard doesn't have a USB flash option so you need a Ryzen 2000 series processor to flash otherwise.

Are you able to achieve 3600MHz with this RAM?

  • 6 months ago

Yes it's sitting at 3600mhz. I had to select that speed in the bios because default was 3200.

Has the ram given you any issues so far being set at 3600mhz ? ive been told a 3600x with 3600mhz ram slows the computer down sometimes. Have you noticed anything?

No issues so far though I haven't run extensive testing.

I going to build almost the same as you with dark rock 4 and silent wings fan, my only concern is do this motherboard enough to connect all fan and dark rock 4?

It depends on how many case fans you'll use. The motherboard has 1 header for a CPU fan and 1 header for a system fan. I used a fan controller from the Antec that let's you connect up to 5 fans to 1 fan header to power and control the case fans.

Love the fans! How do you have them hooked up? I am building in this case soon and I only have two fan headers. I ordered a hub for now to put the case fans on (I have three at the moment but wouldn't mind populating all four spots if possible). Do you have the bottom and front all as intake, with the CPU cooler and rear fan acting as exhaust?

The Antec fan kit I purchased had a fan controller so it wasn't an issue to hook up four fans to it and have it run off one system header. The bottom two fans and the one fan in the front are intakes with the CPU cooler and rear fan are exhaust.

This is an excellent build. I'm not a fan of the way the PSU faces, but this is still an awesome build!

Thanks! The tempered glass is blacked out on the top and obscures the PSU wires.
