Description

Downsized from a Fractal R5 all because of this case XD Pretty much tried to fit as much power in as possible. Temps are a lil higher than I would like going to try modding an exhaust fan on the lid.

Changed a few things to improve temps, got some 90 degree USB cables for the top and managed to fit two fans up there and cut a custom cut perspex side panel so I could get the GPU pulling air from the side.

CPU temps are now in the 60s under full load and GPU in the low 70s

Even if that isn't what he uses it for, it could easily be used for that and it would be awesome

Biggest thing I'm curious about is the Sennheiser GSX 1000 along with the Xonar U7 MKII. Why two different sound systems? Also, how is the performance of the Sennheiser GSX 1000 unit?

Actually I have three as I have a Schiit Modi multibit and Jotunheim dedicated for listening to music. Basically though I didn't realise this mainboard doesn't support 5.1 as it only has Stereo, Mic and Line in ports and the GSX 1000 only has stereo out. It only does virtual 7.1 for headphones. GSX 1000 is pretty amazing for positional audio in games, defiantly a notable difference over my old Creative X-FI. But I needed something else to output 5.1. GSX 1000 - Gaming Xonar u7 Mk2- Speakers Modi / Jotunheim - Music

Did you have a clearance issue with the cooler on the GPU?

  • 25 months ago

It fits with zero clearance on the H80i V2 (it is touching the top of it) and you have to bend the GPU bracket a tiny bit as it is a couple of mm to thick. Basically it juuuust fits anything thicker wouldn't. If I didnt already have the card, blower would be the way to go in this case for sure

No, the latest H80 comes with a Ryzen bracket in the boxI switched the stock fan to a noctua but that wasnt needed just quieter

Yes, super fast compared to a HDD but not as noticeable going from a normal SSD

Color me impressed with the custom cut tempered glass! You could potentially get better performance to noise ratios with the H80i using the Fractal Design HP-12 fan. I've been using HP-14 fans on my 280mm AIO and I couldn't be happier.

Hi First of all cool looking build. Quick question, how did you manage to fit the strix 1080ti that way with the riser cable that was provided?

  • 18 months ago

I did not, I have a 60cm Thermaltake premium cable

I found this a bit funny I just want to know why you have m.2 Samsung SSD, SATA Samsung SSD, Intel m.2 SSD, and a Intel SATA SSD what’s going on there lol

So I can have lots of storage space and no HDDs

  • 17 months ago

yeah but Im thinking you could of just got 2 Pci-e SSD's and 2 Sata SSD's of the same SSD's but you got 4 different ones lol

I still can't figure out how you fit 2 fans at the top. I already did what you did with the 80mm noctua near the front.

But how the heck did you get the 120mm in without blocking all IO completely (I also have the same MB)? I already lost 2 usb ports underneath the 80mm fan. Any chance I can see the right angle connector setup under the 120mm plz?

Hey arsh89, where did you get those Up/Down angled USB cables and the angled Displayport cable from? Do you have a build log?

  • 9 months ago

I'm sorry man. I haven't checked the site in a while. If it'll still help, here are the USB adapters I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CF7243G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And here's my build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/TRChtg

It's a pretty tight fit and I used ALOT of fans to circulate as much air as possible. I also ditched the cables that came with the PSU and used these thinner, more flexible cables to make everything fit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRWN5M2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Oh the things we do for a small form factor

Hi out of curiosity.. the cut that you made for the side panel.. is that the actual tempered glass that came with the case? From what I understand you cannot cut tempered glass right? Thanks

No, it is a custom cut bit of tinted perspex in the same thickness / dimensions as the original with the mounting hardware swapped over.
