Mostly for gaming.

Max. GPU temp on load 55ºC overclocked to 2050/6000 MHz.
Great build! I ordered something very similar. (Nano, 8700k, GTX 1080Ti, 1TB 960 Evo) I just haven't decided on using an air cooler (NH-DH15S) or an AIO cooler. How do you like the NZXT Kraken?
My 8700k won't get here until Wednesday and I can't decide on a cpu cooler yet
I love the x62 but I HATE the CAM software, is a joke, seriously.
Thank you for the comment ;)
Which 1080Ti did you order? Unless is a blower style cooler (like the FE where it exhaust out side the case) you'd do better with an AIO. If the heat from the GPU is being dumped inside the case, the D15S will be cooling the CPU with the GPU's exhaust.
NH-D15s with Chromax NF-A15 HS fan :D !
bruh cant wait for the upcoming build - i bet its gonna blow everything out of the water - hehe aio pun - anyways they are both equivalent in terms of temps but the aio looks better. the aio is reliable - honestly - but the Noctua has less points of failure (even though that should deter you from an aio)
DUDE THAT IS SO CLEAN. i would delid the cpu if you have balls it will give waaay better temps like - 10C but then again you void your warranty soooo
Yeah, im not sure about delid yet :\
Thank you :)
I love the idea of ITX (small form factor) but i have major issue with limiting RAM by 2 slots.
I love the the Nano if for one major point, smaller foot print but taller for twin cooler up top...heat rises, duh fractal design.
But i will say, I totally dig your parts list inc the 7700k/ 1080ti-hybrid. nice my man.
I wanted to go for the NCASE M1, but I wanted a big AIO, and the graphics card hybrid, thats why I went fot the Nano S instead
Very clean. I have the same case and it's really nice.
Yes it is! I love it!
So you bought a 1080ti just to play at 1080p?
Just 1080p, up to 240 frames per second. Yes please.
Yeah no. The monitor and the whole 240hz 1080p is a complete meme.
How does your cooler fit in that board with those rams? I have corsair dominator platinums and I can't fir the cooler :(
I think I answered you in reddit. The Platinums are taller than trident :(
Thanks for posting, nice build. I'm doing the same MB, CPU AIO cooler and RAM build, when the MB is available here. Is there an issue with the RAM, AIO clearance?
Yeah, the hoses of the x62 are touching the RAM and once fixed the pump, you cant move the hoses anymore but I didnt want the NZXT logo upside down.
Thanks. Thought so shouldn't be a problem, though you can get copper shims to raise the AIO. I'm getting no cooling problems and my GPU is fan cooled.
It would be good to have the PSU fan pointed down, up until the heat passing to the GPU?
I wasnt sure tbh, but seasonic recommends that position in ITX cases
Mmm ... how strange, but being a 80+ Titanium PSU the heat is minimal. Although it is rare for me to recommend this position.
Wow slick build! I almost got the same parts ordered :) I7-8700K, KrakenX62, Fractal Design Define R5, PRIME 850W power supply :) Hope my build will turn out as dope as yours!
What graphics card? I went for mITX format because of the space. Post the pictures when its complete!
I was allowed to borrow a friends GTX 970 :) I'll wait to buy a new one until I got enough money to buy/ till the new series gpu's come out :)
Sick. I can't even imagine what 240hz is like, I've only gotten to try 144hz.
I think this build will last you for a while, lmao.
I come from a 120hz monitor and you definitely can tell the difference. Really smooth :)
what mouse pad is that?
How are the acoustics of the case? Do the pumps or fans dominate the audible noise?
Not really, i've kept the moduvent on top and only on stress I can hear the x62 fans. I can hear the EVGA fan without my headphones tho.
I have always went with full cases and large computers but only this next build within the next few months (hopefully) I will be going with the mITX, 2 RAM slots is OK, especially when they are 8GB each or 16GB each. My current desktop is a 2700K and still kicking but I want to upgrade and last myself for the next few years.
How tight of a fit was the Kraken x62 in it... I was looking at doing something similar but read that it may not support it. Obviously you got it in
Really tight, the hoses are touching the ram but its working :)
On the Fractal website, it says that PSUs up to 160mm are supported, and shorter lengths for easy cable routing. The PSU you used is 170mm, so is the model you used on the list right? Or are you sure its 170mm and your custom cables that you used can allow that long of a PSU?
Im using the one on the list, yes. I’ve used this PSU with both cable kits, the original one and the custom from CableMod. No problem at all.
nice build! do you have any issue with ram speed?
I plan to buy Trident Z @ 4000. thanks!
