In my old build - I had the GPU as my exhaust fan but when I tested the rads in push/pull on intake - I ran only 1C hotter. I actually only have GPU now and I still run it on the front of my case as intake.
no offenSe taken
You can def fit a 280 rad and fans in the case. I only went with 240 because of the previous case I had - otherwise I would have a 280.
They were a custom order from CableMod using their configurator and the Hue from NZXT is the lighting sytstem.
Bought my first 980ti before the 1080s dropped
Hey man - thank you very much.
On my work computer so I'll follow up with some specifics.
Monitor - I really enjoy the monitor but it most definitely needs the proper adjustment to make it shine. I tweaked my NVIDIA desktop color and gamma settings to clean it up. I have it next to 2 IPS monitors and the blacks are probably a 9.5/10 compared to those. I also love having an HDMI input for my PS4.
Fan Speeds - I'll have to check this when I get home. But the fans are in push/pull. The push fan is connected to my fan header which runs pretty aggressively (above 1100 rpm) at all times and the pull fan (connected to the GPU) runs the stock fan curve on the GPU.
My machine is probably not the quietest out there but I prefer to sacrifice a little bit of ambient noise for cooler temps.
Hope this helps!
I'm assuming you are talking about the upper front fan - I use it mostly to ensure no dust re-enters my build from the upper chamber area. With the fans above the rad being so close to the top of the case I wanted to make sure the dust never re-circulated in the camera.
Haha I am submitted - just waiting now!
Congrats on the feature - well deserved!
Congrats on the feature!
Makes sense - I need to do mine like that
Thanks for the info!
Thanks man! All the positive comments have been encouraging as hell!
How did you secure the lowest most front 120 fan? Screwed from the back?
Mount is below:
I cut the bottom of the pole off and bought 2 of each of the following to clamp the pipe:
& 1 pc of 3/8" threaded rod
Thanks man - my submission is in with Ed and Randonfrank - hopefully I get on!
Haha they are good cables. Very durable.
No need to be single but it does make diverting money a little easier when you are ;)
Well I break up my pay checks into different bank accounts using direct deposit. This allows me to split my money before I ever see it. I have an account designated for spending on fun that I set aside some money each week for.
It's a Custom Shop Guitar Center Exclusive. Iced tea Maple top, solid body and Nashville pick ups
I got them from CableMod - ModMesh using their configuration.
About 3-4 months. I had some of the parts already and I get to buy building materials wholesale which helped my cause!
Good question and thank you!
The extension kit is used for the LEDs in my desk. I have an extension that runs out of my case and into my desk behind my shelves and then behind my monitors. That way I can coordinate my PC and desk together - color wise.
Thanks man! Love your 1070 SLI build
Thanks! and Nikon D5100 with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED Lens
glad I could be an inspiration!
So sick man
They are the few variants I made
I just submitted to Ed today - hopefully I make it!
Thanks for the input
The front 120 that's out of alignment is because I am waiting on some bolts and nuts to arrive because there are no pre-threaded holes for a 120mm fan - I had to tap the screws that are shown myself.
I'll think about the LEDs - I like how simple and consistent they are
Here you go man
Thanks man! I am pumped!
Thanks a lot man. My family runs a commercial construction company so I grew up around tools and have access to some heavier duty stuff which absolutely helped.
I had a loose set up drawings that I started with, yes.
I have the frame legs on carpet sliders right now (I rent the house and don't to mat the carpet) which makes it easy to slide the whole thing forward.
Desktop wallpaper is homemade in photoshop - want a link?
Thanks a lot man - I did roughly draw it up in CAD and new some maximum sizes I wanted to stay under for efficiency of building materials. I made some minor changes along the way.
I mean I could create another - feel free to reach out if you are looking for something in particular
I fought with that decision for a month or two - ultimately I like how the exposed edges of the case and LEDs are concealed with the regular case. The acrylic that Phanteks used on this case seems to be far more durable than my old H440.
The tempered case is super sexy as well. No doubt.
Thanks a ton!!!!
Thank you! The red oak is finished using Tung Oil Mix (Minwax)
Honestly it's pretty easy (relative term) - take a look here - https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/477097-phanteks-enthoo-evolv-atx-top-fan-cavity-mod/
Sure man - I am at work now - but I will add a few photos to the album later.
Thanks dude - fair question for sure. I've had one of the 980Ti's for just under a year now and based on benchmarks I was seeing for 1080's - I didn't see enough of an increase to warrant selling (and taking a hit price wise) on my existing card - so I stuck with the 980Ti's. Now when the 1080Ti Hybrids release - I will upgrading my SLI to that!
Good call - thanks!
Thanks a lot man! I was Black and Red before but decided to go bold for this build
