Description

This was the PC I built second.

Custom painted radiator and the gpu shroud. Dellided the 8600k with liquid metal and re-applied thermal paste to the GPU when I took it apart for paint. I had to grind and cut parts of the case to allow the GPU power cables to have enough room and for the case to fully close. This GPU was a very very tight fit. I scuffed the paint in a few spots getting it in but now that its there my worries are over.

This case is amazing! With all the panels off its just a bare very workable frame. Cable management was somewhat of a pain due to the stiff sleeved cables running straight into the radiator with push/pull. After many hours and re-routing cables I have the finished product you see today.

I have yet to overclock any component of the build but once we both have everything together on a desk I will mess around with it a little.

I really like builds like these with DIY painted parts, it adds a ton of uniqueness to the build. Hopefully your gf understands and appreciates how much work you put into this PC.

I love the V1 Snow. I've had it before and considering it again. Can you tell me what GPU temps you are getting at load?

It's a cheap and well built case. My only gripe is having no filters on the sides but that's fixable. Honestly couldn't tell you haha when I first built it I checked the temps every now and again and I think during gaming 90%-100% load it was high 60s low 70s but I also re-did the thermal paste with grizzly. I had bought the card used. When its on a real desk I will mess around with overclocking ect. and update the build.

Nice I made my first build with this case. Mine is a budget build looking to add an AIO once I upgrade my CPU. Where did you get the Cable Mod for the AIO I think it looks great!

Thank you very much. Just be prepared if your going to orient your AIO radiator in the same location as mine with a full sized power supply because the cables were a issue to get them to bend around the fan attached to the radiator. The company's name is actually Cable Mod, they make all sorts of custom stuff.

Hey, did you put the PSU upward or downward? I see someone put a similar PSU downward, wondering will it be better for the airflow.

This case I did a lot of research on before I purchased. It was between the corev1 and the corsair air 240. My gf thought the corev1 was "cuter" haha. The corev1 actually has a ton of ventilation and I feel like I could have not delided, used a quality air cooler and had been fine. The airflow is amazing. It also just fits the psu just fine, the only hard part was the sleeved cables on that psu were super stiff and hard to work with but after many hours I managed! Haha

I have yet to overclock anything in her build quite yet but im sure it could handle 5ghz. It idles around 28c. Il update later when our setups are complete and I can mess around with it more.

Ps. Im going to do a build much smaller in the future just for fun! I also might switch over her build into the newer version of the corsair 240 (blanking on the name.) It has tempered glass? Its stunning.

Thank you so much! Yeah I put in many hours on the cable management in that case. I would get everything all together and have to redo everything because I found a better way to route one single cable...or they were blocking the fans too much. All in all im happy with its final appearance. If I could go back with the knowledge I have now I would have got a smaller psu, with cablemod cables haha but I do plan to build a much smaller build later on.
