Description

My previous rig was an i7-3770k @ 4.2, which was still on DDR3. I wanted to upgrade my CPU, but that would require upgrading the CPU, RAM, and Motherboard as it's all dated hardware. My last PC looked good from the outside, but was upgraded over time so nothing inside really looked aesthetically pleasing to me, although the cable management was still good and it was clean. This time I just said **** it, I may as well get a new case and cooler as well, since I wanted to go back to air and try out the NH-D15 and the cool Chromax covers rather than just another AIO. Spent the extra dollarydoos as well to get some red cables from CableMod, as red and white is my favorite color scheme. I say almost full rebuild because I kept my GPU and all 4 of my drives, as the GPU is still good for now and I have no reason to buy new drives. Booted on the first try no issues, and I went straight into the BIOS and bumped the 9700k up to 5.0 GHz before reinstalling Windows. No RGB for now as well because where my PC currently is, you can't really see inside the side panel. If I do ever get a light strip for the case though, every light inside will just be white. I'm really happy with how it came out in the end so I thought I would share :)

Nice build man! I love the look of the giant cooler with the chromax covers, really made me decide to go air over AIO this time

Do you feel like the Chromax white covers and the white of the case are slightly different? Looks a little off in the pictures but it's hard to tell. Just ordered a Chromax NH-D15 and white Meshify-C and I'm trying to decide on the black or white Chromax cover. Build looks awesome and not trying to be nit-picky, by the way. Looks to be almost exactly what I plan on building just with a different shade of red for the custom cables, and a Ryzen CPU/mobo.

Sorry for the late reply! I never thought twice about it honestly, I also can't see into my computer where it is right now so I'm not constantly looking at the Chromax covers. Didn't bother me one bit when building it though

Ha! Thanks for the reply, regardless! I couldn't decide whether to go with the white covers and paint my 1080ti shroud/backplate white, or just go with the black shroud and have primarily black internals. In the end, the latter option was easier so that's what I did.

Looks good, i like the chromax noctua brand, they made their ugly great performing fans and coolers into something that looks amazing

Is the 860 EVO a good boot drive?

Yep! EVO drives seemed to be the standard for a long time
