I'm don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure...
Actually quite well. It didn't budge at all. However, if I were to transport it I would want to secure it better somehow.
They are not sets, these are extensions that you plug into the original cables. You can find extensions on Dazmode. They work with all psu.
Ps. If you go with the vantec spectrum pci fan card, you should probably mod the molex connector to 7V to reduce the noise. I usually put it at 25% fan speed after the mod.
You gotta do what you gotta do to cool those 390X vrms :')
You're right but theyre vrm cooling fans for the gpu. Its a vantec spectrum pci fan card painted black with another 80mm fan attached to it. I'm using a universal GPU block but it doesn't cover the VRMs. Those fans blow air straight at the vrm and keep the temps down.
Thanks! Fixed and good catch :')
Thanks again for all the comments in my builds :)
Thank you, those are custom 3mm dual white led with black sleeving from Dazmode in Canada.
You make a perfectly valid point sir, the 390X I actually got back from RMAing a 290X with MSI. The hardware in my system is untouched from over a year ago, before the launch of 980/980TI/fury/furyX. Since I'm using a 1440p monitor, I felt the 390X was enough for me (Not enough $$ for gpu + monitor upgrades haha)
Thank you, hopefully someday as long as I keep building!
MOAR INCOMING :)
Would look awesome with some mayhem dye, but that can wait until u switched in your new rads and gpu :) +1
Mainly the water loop, some led bling, another M500, and some fans.
Also Went 290X > 390X for free from MSI RMA :)
Actually I didn't take a photo of it but on picture 13 you can see part of the RX240 in there :) which makes a total of 480mm (hence the noctuas on the front)
390x is stock speed but undervolted -100mv and i7 is email@example.com. This 390x temps on the core is great but vrm heats up to ~85 degrees which is why I added bottom fans for the vrm. If I could go back I'd pick up a full block.
I see how the white nzxt fan is misleading... So the front rad is actually two noctuas in push and I added the nzxt fan in pull on the lower 120mm of the RX240 to feed more air to the 390X.
Top is an ax240 with the stock fans haha
Hahaha I probably got influenced by his videos too much...
Good advice, Ill keep that in mind if I buy any loud fans at max speed. For now the fans are relatively quiet...
Hopefully the pc will be tucked away and my gettoness will be forgotten.
Yes I had to borrow a PS/2 keyboard from my Dads 2005 computer, tell me about it. Even he doesn't use that PC anymore (athlon x2 3500 2.2ghz single core LOL)
Ah OK I felt it wasn't that hard to put one or two more fan headers on the mobo but I had some molex to 3 pin from my last build which made it work
Thankfully this board still had USB 2.0 and PS2. Might've been screwed otherwise!
Thanks! It's the challenges that makes building PC fun :). Defiantly not my last build. Will be looking forward to many more DYIs ahead
Very clean and sleek build, wish I had cable management skills like yours...
Absolutely stunning, well picked parts. Only possible issue is the 840 evo had some slowdown problems, but it's not a deal breaker in any way.
He said he will be upgrading in 2 months
Love that case
The general rule is the buy the best possible single gpu you can buy. Sli later when needed. Nice color scheme, photos could be better haha
This looks a lot better, I'm sure it would look good when it comes together.
If you are planning to sli in the future, that motherboard does not support sli. Also the power supply might be a bit low for sli.
If you aren't going to sli, that build is perfectly fine.
Get a Z97 motherboard if you want to overclock in the future. If not, save yourself some money and get a i5-4690 instead. (Asrock has some stunning blue Z97 boards)
That adata ssd is a bit outdated, consider crucial (MX200/M550/BX100) or samsung ssd (850 EVO/PRO)
Never seen that case before, but make sure you do the research (ie. video card length, easy cable management, etc)
That wifi adapter is (b/g USB 2.0 150Mbps) which is also outdated. If you have a N modem or an AC modem, get an adapter with usb 3.0 that supports N or AC bands. (unless you like lagging :)
Sucks to have to rma, luckily, with that case you just need to disconnect the cables and pull out the mobo :)
Everything looks clean, love the color scheme. If only you could paint those ssds red, that would look even more amazing
Y you hating bro
I wouldnt worry about it if your cpu is running around 60 degrees C under load.
ps. you didnt specify if the gpu is 160 °F or the cpu is 160 °F
Some white ram would've looked stunning, still an amazing build with that ram +1
No it looks fine haha, if you want to fix it I think you can just re-screw the mounts with the gpu straight.
Is it me or does that gpu sag upwards?
Glad you took the advice! That voltage is great for 24/7 use. Enjoy your new build :)
You should watch the voltages and make sure it's within normal range. I tried applying auto optimization once and it put quite a bit of extra voltage on my chip
I think you mean x41* but yea seems like it was a gift :)
Z97 board, Kraken cooler... 4460. Please tell me you plan to upgrade to a K processor eventually. Still, she's a beauty.
I guess theres only one way to find out.. :)
I see you recycled the old mobo, but might also want to consider reselling it and getting a z77. You bought an overclocking cpu and a good aio cooler. Plus you would need to overclock that cpu eventually. Otherwise great build +1
it looks quite clean to me
So... clean +1
Red and black theme, get blue ram. LOL still looks good +1
Clean and nice cable management! Pretty good deals all around.
Dunno about the prices but good air coolers cost similar to h100i in Canada, no reason to pick air coolers over the better looking aio. Get a kracken if you are going for some pretty high overclocking.
If it looks stupid but it works, then it aint stupid.
That makes perfect sense since your rear intake and front into do not blow at each other because of the positions.
This thing is just too darn beautiful to mess up the airflow, glad the airflow is well thought out
Is it me or is your top fans intaking warm air?
Although performance would be similar, but it would make more sense to use front and bottom as intake and top and back as exhaust. Though, this may create a negative air pressure since you have more fans exhausting.
clean cable management +1
Hyper 212 evo would be a good choice for even a mild overclock.
The R9 290 temps are a bit high at the top slot, but then again they were made to run at 94 degrees for extended times. If you're unsatified with the temps you can look into Vapor or Tri-x versions. I have a tri-x that doesn't go past 70 degrees in a H440.
This. This is sweet and balanced. +1
