+ Total (United States):
Here we have my first PCPP completed build. I saw this case and fell in love with it. I am someone of minimal taste. I actually don't care too much for RBG which is why I went with a clean look. I am slowly building this into my own touch. This build is not "perfect" though and I learned a few things since building it. For once I made the mistake of going with the H60 AIO. Now, the mistake is not the cooling performance. Frankly, it really keeps my 2700x at 65c max at any stress point. The thing is with it mounted in the back fan slot, There are very little ways of exhausting hot air. I tried having the side fan as an exhaust, but it doesn't really work well particularly because of then fans I bought. I also realized the fans I bought are not the best fans for this build. I will be replacing them with Noctua - NF-A12x25 120mm fans.
The biggest issue with this build is the PSU hands down. It is absolutely terrible! Cannot handle any load at all. I will be replacing it with the Silverstone - 700 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply and custom cables from Cablemod. I also saw that with the PSU replaced you can get enough space for a bigger cooler so I plan on getting the Dark Rock pro 4 as well. Still, I love this case. If you have any questions regarding the Inwin A1 let me know. :D
CPU is amazing. I didn't use the Wraith cooler, but it's really nice and well built.
Handles well and keeps CPU cool. Only gripe is that I can't control the speed of the pump. It's all automatic unlike the h100i v2 I had before. Installation was pretty easy and with the case closed I don't hear the pump. During idle it's very quiet.
Great MOBO. It has 3 fan connectors, but one is for the AIO pump. Recommend buying fan splitter. Bought fan Splitter to connect my fans under one header. Everything works well and I was able to OC RAM to 3200mhz no problem.
Honestly aesthetically it's remarkable and unmatched. Prior to this case, I had a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX glass and it was beautiful but too big for my liking. I turned to this little guy after some research. Airflow is alright in this case if you set it up right. My setup is one fan intaking from the side, one fan at the bottom right (though I will be adding another). My back slot is taken by AIO for now. So far the temps are good. I was worried about the PSU, but so far no problems with it at stock. That being said the PSU is really garbage for OC. Building in it is a challenge specifically because of cable routing. You cannot connect something in random order. It has to be precise. Also, the PSU cables while custom-made, are still quite stiff. it takes some maneuvering to hide them since there's little space for cable management. Still, I made it work. Chi charger doesn't quick charge, but sitting for an hour it charges my phone decently. Case is great but with flaws.
UPDATE Great fans with amazing build quality. These are good case fans if there's good ventilation. However, not good for AIO or in restricted airspace. No static Pressure. Also a bit noticeable once they get up in RPMs around 9000rpms
