Description

This is my new rig. My pride and joy of gaming PCs. I have never built a computer like this before. You can see the computer parts but I didn't skimp anywhere. (except I noticed later I could have done better on the ram whoops) only thing left is to drop a M.2. I already had a 256g Samsung Evo so I do have an SSD. Corsair did a really nice job with the H100i GTX and with EVGA including the water cooler with the hybrid my pc runs incredibly cool. I have an extra stock fan I don't know where to place. I'm open for ideas. The air 540 was an amazing ING case to work with. I know that lighting is not the best inside the case but that can be added at any point

I want to say the GPU should be in the top slot for performance reasons but some extra input might be needed from some other PCPP user's. . . ( help me out guys)

Cool build ! You could throw that extra fan on the bottom-left side.

OK awesome didn't know it mattered. Was just easier to put it there with the tubing for the water cooler. Doesn't bend so easily.

OK I moved it to the top. My airflow is now in through front and top out through back. Fan will not fit on the bottom in back.

Great powerhouse build; should have enough power to handle just about anything that comes its way. I'll try to let you know if I think of a name. +1

No SSD at this price point, though?

He has one already, he just didn't put it in the list.

This is beautiful. The cable management is almost flawless:) Name it terminator...??

It's that case. It makes cable management impossible to screw up.

Btw I would mount that radiator in the back for the GPU so your intake fan doesn't blow hot warmer into your case.

(Sorry to repeat, im not sure you saw my other comment)I see you posting a lot in these forums and you seem very knowledgeable on various PC building related subjects, do you think you could help me with my in desk pc hardline water cooled pc (I need to think of a better name XD)? https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/137246-hardline-watercooling-in-a-desk-pc

Nice water cooled machine! Great part list too ;p +1

I would probably call it "My Personal Refrigerator" or maybe "Black Ice"

Idk, random stuff :P

Swap the hybrid's radiator to the back, it looks cluttered in the front.

I love the build. Honestly for optimal cooling purposes I would have mounted the CPU cooler to the front of the case and mounted the GPU cooler to the bottom. This way they are booth pulling fresh cooled air through the rad instead of the CPu pulling already heated air from inside the case. Other then that pretty awesome build.

Well the cpu cooler takes two slots so it ld be mounted to front easy enough. But I have it set to intake (mfg recommended) and the front is also intake the rear is exhaust. Went for the positive airflow. Not sure about cooler on bottom. So both rads such in cool air.

I was excited for a second thinking u got an optical drive in a 240 but really nice powerful build

Would highly suggest you put the GPU rad in the back, not the front intake. Caking in the radiator fins is a disaster for cooling a card that expensive.
