Description

Recently decided to switch to the IN WIN 805 (Black) from the NXZT H440 (White) and swopped to some Thermaltake Riing fans. The case does not have the best thermals, so I took out the HDD cage for additional fans. It does look a lot better in person than the photos.

A little bit of history, I built a new pc in back in August. Link to my previous build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/fG4CmG

I’ve been tinkering around with a few components and decided to stick with this build as my main rig. After a few months with these components here are some of my opinions on the parts.

Noctua NF-F12 industrialPPC-3000 PWM: These fans are powerful and LOUD! I ran them at 50% max. The black does look a lot better than the standard beige ones.

Asus Strix R9 390: Not a great overclocker, runs really hot and there is noticeable coil whine. I got it because the cooler and back plate looks sleek. I don’t game much so there is no point getting a better performing card.

Corsair H100i GTX: Efficient AIO but the pump makes an annoying ticking noise. I will probably try the EKWB X240-kit as my next project.

Corsair AX760i: Not sure why it’s discontinued, but it’s a quiet PSU and the fan doesn’t run until it draws 400ish watts of power.

The rest of the components are average and nothing special.

Not sure of the placement of the GPU is affected by the PCI Lane multiplier. X16/ x 8 ETc.

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

You bring up a good point. I've checked the manual and it appears to be fine. I should still get the x16 multiplier.

Thecautiousone 10 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

Good. Just wondering. Nice Simple Build.

Your only getting 8x. The slot is physically 16x size, but it is electronically wired for 8x. Its not a big deal to only run 8x, and your air flow really isn't affected in this particular setup.

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Out of curiosity how were you able to check that?

jaredt 1 Build 3 points 23 months ago

The Z97 Chipset only has so many PCIE 3.0 Lanes and I know that board doesn't have a plx chip that adds more lanes. Plus if you really look at that slot on for say the newegg page (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132414) You can see that there is gold only half way up the slot. Look at the 3rd picture on their site.

I never noticed. Thanks for sharing!

Ug I want that case so bad but I cannot bring myself to pay $250 for a case

TitanG545 1 point 3 months ago

Good news it is now $150.

Pictures really do this build justice.

ProfessorPancake 2 points 23 months ago

This is a beautiful build.

rosemountboy 1 point 23 months ago

Might look diffrent irl but that heavy tint on window makes it impossible to see anything but the fans. Still looks awesome tho

That case looks sexy +1

parpoint 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Great part list, but most of all, such a clean look. In my opinion, this build is in the perfect spot between flashy and sober. +1!

jalangdo 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

What a sexy build, do you think that case has sufficient space to throw an additional GPU?

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Yes there is sufficient space. It can technical fit 4 GPUs, but the airflow is pretty bad so I would recommend 2 GPUs max.

jalangdo 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

I love the case thinking in getting one for my next build but I'm a little worried about the airflow. Can you give more details on your fans configuration? I see you have installed the CPU cooler in the front part of the case but that part of the case is sealed so where are you pulling in the cool air from? how is that working for you? Thank you!

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

I'm running push (Noctua NFF12ippc) / pull (thermaltake riing 12) on the radiator mounted at the front. The Noctua fans are hidden behind the IN Win logo. As for intake, there are 2x120mm fans at the bottom. You will have to give up the 3.5 drive cage to install the bottom fans. For exhaust, there is 1x120mm fan at the rear. Temperatures are decent, better than my NZXT H440 setup. I'm overclocking the CPU and GPU and max temps are 75c and 80c respectively. You'll need to invest on some fans, it comes with only 1 mediocre fan at the rear.

jalangdo 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

I see, guess I'll have to choose between this case or the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower. thanks :)

Iceman320 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

That's one sweet looking build and I really like the looks of your MOBO

ABundleOfBunnies 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

OMG I LOVE THE 2 COLORS OF RAM. OMOMGOOGMOMGOMOGMO +10000000000000000. IM definately stealing that idea for my next build.

cbc00 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

I love the r9 390! How's it treating you. I haven't put it through too much but its treating me nice so far?

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Maybe I was unlucky with the binning, my card doesn't overclock too well and it runs pretty hot. But it's definitely one of the better price per performance cards out there right now.

cbc00 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

Yeah I just recently tried overclocking. Doesn't work too well

Fsylar 1 point 23 months ago

No performance difference between card in x16 or x8 check linustechtips video

That is a really nice build, I like the theme that you went with.

sleazefrenzy 1 point 23 months ago

Looking at buying this case for my first build. How much of a difference did removing the hard drive bay and sticking two fans down the bottom make to the thermals?

I was originally planning on getting a NZXT X61 AIO 240mm radiator in the front, but now I'm thinking maybe pushing the hard drive bays into the top corner, fitting a single 140mm NZXT X41 AIO below, which then frees up space to fit a couple 120mm fans down the bottom.

Beautiful results with the LEDs though man, this is exactly what I had in mind aesthetically.

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

Thanks. I can't say what the difference is because I didn't test it with the drive cage. But you can check out the review at http://www.techspot.com/review/1058-in-win-805/pages.html 2x140mm intake fans at the front should be sufficient given that your hardware doesn't generate too much heat. If not add 2 more 140mm in push/pull on the radiator.

cpenland 1 Build 1 point 23 months ago

How did you space out the LED's using the thermaltake led strip? Did you have to buy additional adaptors or did you just plug the leds into the psu with a molex? Nice build btw!

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 23 months ago

The LED's shown around the case are the NZXT Sleev​ed LED Kit. The Thermaltake LED strips are hidden around the radiator to highlight the honeycomb pattern at the front. All the LED's are attached to the PSU molex.

E7 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

Very inspiring! I have this exact case and am in the process of researching/assembling the rest of my components. As one other person pointed out, I spotted the RGB switch for your Riing fans, and I was wondering if you were able to get all 5 of your fans running off of it (and change colors)? Did you need a splitter? If so, which one?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Kudos to the truly amazing build!

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 22 months ago

Thanks! No I was unable to sync all five fans, I actually need 2 RGB controllers, the other one is hidden on top of the PSU and out of sight. It's important to note that the fans use a 5 pin connector into the RGB controller. As of right now there doesn't appear to be a way to sync both RGB controllers.

E7 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

Thanks for the quick reply! Good to know.

ShoutingAtCats 1 point 22 months ago

I really want this case but I need the 2 bottom fans for intake so what do I do for mass storage, just buy a external hard drive or what?

Monty1990 1 point 21 months ago

Could get SSDs to go on the back so could get 1tb or 2tb but at a huge price.

Rather than a mechanical HD so you can use the 120s

[comment deleted]
Huckerman 1 point 22 months ago

I'm in love heart eyes emoji

Monty1990 1 point 21 months ago

Are you running a negative pressure case?

The front rad does it have a separate exhaust or intake than the bottom 120 fans?

And which store did you purchase the case from? I can see three stores but some don't specify if it's the 3.1 type C case.

My plan was to run the two 140s at the front as intake as well as the 120s on the bottom, with a rear push pull corsair h80i gt aio as the only exhaust. So a positive pressure case what do you think?

Thanks

canucks110 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

It should be positive pressure (2 intake and 1 exhaust). The front rad intakes from the 2 bottom fans. I got my case from ncix.com (the Canadian site). Your configuration should work, with my current setup I don't have any dust issues.

Hope that helps

I'm curious where you're hiding the Thermaltake fan controllers?

Nerux 1 point 20 months ago

I just can't find this answer. But how many of those Thermaltake RGB fans do you get in 1 package (21.99 dollars)

PC_Alex 1 point 18 months ago

Did you replace the stock water cooling fans for your Corsair H100i GTX? If so what did you replace it with.

PC_Alex 1 point 17 months ago

Why do you have fans on both sides of your nzxt x61? the thermaltake and the noctua? isnt the thermaltake where it is in the picture good enough?

1xrainbowdashx4 1 point 13 months ago

How are the led fans? Do they connect by molex or pins?

Atranox 1 point 13 months ago

I'm curious - how do the 805's noise level compare to your previous H440?
