Hey, already with another build :) Great work! Very clean too. I did not know CoolerMaster made an all aluminum case. At first I thought it took styling cues from Phanteks. Wow for that price you'd expect CoolerMaster to go "All Out" and take the build quality to the highest. Thanks for listing all your user input on the SL600M. But all-in-all, your entire setup is pretty sweet! I need that kind of space.
Have you tried velcro straps? I cut mine either in half or a bit shorter so there's not so much to wrap. I have tried those zip ties, but I constantly like to adjust those wires until they have a flow to it.
Wow! That is PC mod-ART. I absolutely enjoyed viewing those pics. Awesome build!
Your builds are works of art, Vreaker12. Great combination of parts, and I love the cable organization. Even the NZXT Kraken tubes are nicely done. When I saw "Palico" I knew it was Monster Hunter ;) And for your little brother too! Very nice :)
Thanks! Right now I'm running it stock and it's idling around 32°C. I'll probably push it a bit on my next day off. I'll post updates when I do :)
Thank you! :)
LMAO!!! XD I was seriously thinking about it! But I kept true to the winnings. That Threadripper would be nice though.
Thanks :) I've never won anything from that Gleam io until the i7-8086. Criticism is always welcome! Without it, folks will be on "The Verge" of disaster xD. Also, I'm a sucker for those sound cards ;)
Yay! xD Although I was almost considering an LED strip ;D … Almost.
Check out the Noctua NH-D15S. The cooler is offset a bit to accommodate room for the GPU. Some motherboards have the PCI-E slot close to the CPU, and the bulky NH-D15 (non S) might cause issues.
Thanks! Of course you can use this build as a guide for your build. That's what PCPartPicker is all about :) Yes, the 80mm fans are setup for exhaust and all 3 of the 120mm fans are set to intake air. By the way, you said 9 years and now you want upgrade? I would like to see the before and after pictures please :D
Sweet build! Those Phanteks Halos you were asking about earlier? You should definitely include it to your build! Those Halos will glow nicely with all those parts. Especially your custom GPU and cables. Nice work! Looking forward to seeing more pics of your build. Also, much love for that optical drive;) I too have a lot of CDs, DVDs, etc. which is why I made my HTPC.
Thank you :) You should definitely include the Phanteks Halos for your build. The Halos' lights bring the best in any fan (white fans for best result). For your question, the lights around the Halos have a nice brightness to it, but not striking or distracting. It's more subtle glow with its diffused ring making the fan(s) glow nicely. It is not strong peak blindness like a direct LED shining on the corner of your eye. It is not distracting either when I am gaming or browsing the internet in the dark. But it can get distracting when your eyes wander to it, and you admire your build with the addition to the Phanteks Halos ;)
A great build! You went through a tough challenge to get all those components in there. AIO Watercooled too. Never expected that CoolerMaster 120mm AIO to fit into a mini ITX case, but you made it work. I was gonna ask about the radiator+fan clearance, but you used the stock SilverStone slim fan. Smart! And the other fan as an exhaust. Nice! Also I took a look at your other post "Pi" as well. It's great to see that determination in this post to really get your PC the way you want it. Also, I really like the size and look of that Silverstone case too. That is ideal for portability. Awesome read man, thanks for sharing! \m/
Thank you! It's a great case and you should get one as well. There are 2 versions of the case. The GD09B has the front power & reset switch wires running normally under the Disk drive and the GD09B-V2 has the same wires routed to the front USB 3.0 area which ideal for cable management.
Oh you weren't kidding about those banana comments xD Love the name of the build and those great deals. You also gave it that Tech Yes Lovin' on all the parts ;) It's so clean! By the way, how is AliExpress? I'm always on the fence from buying parts from there. Also, your punctuations and grammar is on point. Awesome job on R.A.G.S!
Indeed, gotta have a banana for scale ;) It also makes the build appealing xD Thank you! I have not overclocked it because it was kinda warm on idle with the single fan GTX 1060 and low profile cooler from Noctua. Cabinet door stays open while the HTPC is running. The cabinet inside does get warm too. I'm going to cut some relief holes and install a cabinet fan to expel the heat.
Sweet build! 12 year upgrade? You went all out with the custom water loops and it turned out great. First thought scrolling through the pics was: "Where did he get those white Noctua fans?! lol xD They look so good I could only wish Noctua would consider a color change ;) Here's to another 12 years \m/ Cheers!
Sweet build and a clean setup to match. Love that NZXT combination of parts. This is a wonderful birthday gift for your daughter. You're an awesome Dad! +1
Thank you :)
Thanks! Good luck on your build too. For the Phanteks Halos Lux RGB fan hub, it comes packaged with the RGB LED 4 pin adapter to connect with your motherboard RGB headder. Or to save money, you can just buy the RGB LED 4 pin adapter by itself (it's on sale on Amazon) ;)
Thank you :) I too love the Ryzen 1600X. Together with the Corsair H115i, it is an excellent choice. Good luck with your future build.
Thanks! Gaming was the highest priority. But as I was building this, the more I wanted it to look nice :)
