Description

First build, thanks to PCPartsPicker and lots of information available on youtube and PC forums I was able to choose exact parts for my needs and assemble it exactly how I wanted it . Was looking for a build that would destroy in gaming while looking good with or with out RGBs and I think I hit that goal, I will let you guys decide =D

Thermaltake view 37: Absolutely love how this case looks. Two features that I really like about is the side mount for a radiator and unique curved window . I was worried about acrylic getting scratched but I took great care of it , didn't take the plastic off until the build was complete . Originally planed on making a PSU shroud but decided against it. I was not able to fit 2 140mm fans on the bottom with the original mount points, had to drill new holes ( 2 120mm fans should fit fine ). The radiator exhaust point is chocked off in my opinion , drilled a bunch of holes to open it up ( this did not effect overall structure ). Drilled new mounting points for the rad , moving it 3/8 of an inch closer to the front due to clearance issue with the EVGA power link .

Asus ROG strix z370-E: Works as it should. My only complaint is a single 5V ADD_Header , would be nice to have 2. had to order a Y splitter to plug in the V1TECH backplate.

Kraken X72: Sexy, enough said. Pump is silent.

Thermaltake Riing Plus RGB TT Premium Edition fans: They look and work great . But I had the most trouble setting up the fans out of anything else. The case came with 3 fans so I ordered 6 more additional fans . Case fans and the extra fans that I ordered came with different controller and I wasn't able to sync them . If you are reading this do your self a favor and order TT sync controller ( sold separately ) , supports up to 9 fans .

V1TECh back plate: Great quality , easy to install .

Agreed. Was considering getting one of these but ended up buying a GPU that had a nice backplate already. However, the lighting on the back of the GPU is enviable.

I really wanted FTW3 , it has a nice back plate but I would of had clearance issue with the side mounted radiator so I had to get CS2 edition instead which has a plane backplate.

I had the same problem with my thermaltake riing plus fans and my thermaltake cooler. Kind of silly that they would do that. I literally spent like 30 minutes putting together different configurations and looking for a part that I was sure that I was missing, but turns out Thermaltake just wanted more of my money...

Beautiful build. Absolutely stunning. You and I have very similar taste it would seem. The View 37 is so nice and all the room within makes it so easy to work with doesn't it? Congrats on your build, it looks stunning and I'm sure it is quiet, cool, and powerful

Thank you!

It is absolutely silly , they have 3 different controllers for the exact same product line and none of them sync with each other . Put my build on a 3 day extra wait time.

Love the case and it is easy to build in , had to make some slight mods to it for fitment . I wish the view panel was tampered glass . System stays cool and quiet even with 5ghz overclock .

How's the NZXT Kraken X72? Is it kind of overkill for the CPU, or just right?

  • 9 months ago

just right imo, CPU is overclocked to 5Ghz at1.32V so it does get to 80+C at full load when running a stress test.

Do you control the thermaltake fans with the NZXT Kraken using the Cam software by using the TT Sync controller to pass through a PWM signal? That's what I plan on doing in the future and I think it's a pretty cool little concept

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Not exactly. I'm usuing aura sync for everything except the Kraken and GPU . TT fans wont sync with cam and cam wont sync with asus aura sync .

I was not talking about the RGB, I'm talking about the fan speed, hence why I said "PWM Signal".

Custom loop would of been lovely but first time building , didnt want to complicate things . Next build for sure . Not worried about the dust I keep the house clean and all intakes have dust filters . Using this rig for gaming so 8700k was the way to go in my opinion .

Great build Daniel!

I am trying to build something similar and I would like to ask you something. Do you think I could fit in the GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB Video Card with the NZXT Kraken X72?

Not sure about the length as your 1080 is 267 mm / 10.512 " and 1070 is 298 mm / 11.732 "

Best,

Cisco

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Thank you!

Im assuming you will be using same case and radiator placement . If so , 298mm going to be VERY close. I have moved my radiator mounting points over to the front so i cant measure exactly. With that being said , if you do run into fitment issue it is very easy to move the radiator over to give you more clearance so i wouldnt worry to much and just get the card you want .

  • 9 months ago

Thank you so much Daniel!

Yeah! The idea is to use the same radiator and radiator!

Cool!

Here https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/VB9J7P

this build has a 298mm card in it with the radiator and it looks like its just enough room =)

Many thanks!

I think I will go for it. What about the lack of ventilation in the case. Are you happy with that? I have been watching some videos and it is the only cons I can find to this case.

Best,

Cisco

  • 9 months ago

This case does not lack ventilation , I have good temps at idle and load.

Here is the link to Gamers Nexus review on this case https://youtu.be/0l9oJ2Qd-qI Its not the best but definitely not the worst for airflow

Yeah! Same case and radiator. I hope the 1070 will fit there. Still playing with the parts. It will be my first build tho

Thank you so much for all your info on this build i pretty much just build the same system and its amazing, thanks for the info about the TT Sync Controller I was wondering about that! https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Stubakka/saved/JWND23 question for you I see you managed to make the CPU cooler fit with the text facing up, I didnt think id have enough room but now see i was wrong. if i wanted to take it off and flip it would i need to clean the CPU and cooler plate and apply artic silver or could i just remove it and flip it?

  • 8 months ago

Hope you're still lurking around here. I am wondering if the case came with one controller or two. The specs page at Thermaltake mentions an analog controller twice in the cooling section.

Also, you have 9 fans and I will also. How did you connect them all up? I am wondering if you could daisy chain the controllers and then connect the last controller to the PCI bracket controller.

Appreciate your response. Thanks.

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

Case will come with one controller but case controller wont sync with controller that came with the fans .

Do your self a favor and purchase TT sync controller on amazon . It's about 30-40$ and connects up to 9 fans .

Hope this helps !

Hey, Daniel, wondering if you have experienced your riing plus fans randomly surging? I've finally got my new case and fans together, but, sheesh, the fans to surge for no reason at all...

  • 8 months ago

all fans? or 1 or 2? let me know which fans and to which fan header on the MOBO they are connected

  • 8 months ago

I have 8 riing plus fans connected to two controllers...it appears that one or more of the 8 will just randomly surge. i think i have it under control now by setting them all the silent, but worry about temps.
