Description

Hi guys! This is the first pc that I have build. I built this to replace my old gaming laptop. The computer runs everything much more smoothly than my previous computer. I decided to use only parts that would sync up to Gigabyte RGB fusion (except for the keyboard). I think that it looks super nice will all the rgb synced up together. I also decided to vertically mount my GPU since I think that it looks so much better when it is vertically mounted. I was originally going to get a ROG STRIX, but after seeing such an amazing deal on the Gigabyte model, it wasn't worth it. I decided to use all of the room in the case by mounting the liquid cooling fans on the right of the case since there was a ton of space and it just looks so much cooler there than it would on the side or top. It took a bit of time since it was my first build, but it was definitely worth it.

Fans, fans, and more fans! Love it man. And yes I agree, the GPU looks great vertically! Check my build out bro! +1

Yeah lol the enermax 6 fan pack was such a good deal, I just had to buy it. Now I'm super happy I did.

Right! I'm gonna grab some Corsair AF140's for my case, and the SP120's for my h100i v2. Soon lol. No rgb though. I like the black fans with the white ring. I'm gonna be mad out spending almost $100 for 5 fans though...

Nice parts... And peripherals as well.

Looks awesome. One note, your radiator is mounted against a wall so your fans are going to struggle to push air through it. Unless they are really high static pressure its inhibiting the ability of the radiator to cool the CPU. I highly suggest moving it to the front or top and mounting it so that the fans can exhaust the air out of the case rather than it circulating the hot air in the case and struggling to move air.

It's kinda hard to see, but the radiator is actually mounted about a half inch off the wall so it does get air through. Although it does inhibit the airflow in the case, temperatures under a full load only reaches about 52°. If the temperatures go up or I decide to overclock the CPU more, I will probably move the radiator to the top of the case. The plus side of having the radiator on the wall is that it looks so much cooler.

Where is the air from the CPU cooler going?

I love the design of those enermax fans. Ever since I saw them I wanted them in my build but 9/10 times people say they get this internal fan rattling noise :/ they look really good though! Btw nice build. Well put together
