I think it looks pretty dope! (Do people still say that?)
The cables and the coolant look nice. I would suggest you make the fans match or leave them a classy white.
From what I can see it looks like you didn't apply enough heat to the bend or didn't heat enough of the PETG to stop it from wrinkling while bending.
Add some pics from further back showing the whole case overall please and maybe your back panel if the cable management is neat! [EDIT] Just noticed the videos, d'oh!
I do not have any pictures to explain how I did it. However, it's not terribly difficult. I bought an L shaped aluminum channel piece. Laid three fans down and marked and cut the aluminum to that size. Then marked and drilled the 6 holes for the fan mounts. Make sure the holes are just undersized from a fan mount screws. Then I drilled a few holes for mounting the aluminum to the case. Paint it up.
Install the bracket to the case with some small #8 or #10 nuts and bolts. Then mount the fans with normal fan screws. I placed the fans so they were "inside" the L otherwise I couldn't use normal fan screws.
Maybe that helps?
I'm a fan ...
I'm curious about your H100 mounting. Can you go into a little more detail on how you did that? Thanks!
Great looking computer BTW! The PSU shroud really helps tidy things up.
Steel be with you.
Awesome build! +1
I do so dig those Meshify cases.
Uh, duct tape? I hope it's just a temporary thing, cause that EK stuff will look sharp.
Something about hardline with clear coolant and lighting makes for a really sleek and sexy build. Come on feature +1!
A custom loop in a small case makes for a sweet build, +1!
Clean build. You can set custom fan curves in the bios or maybe in some Gigabyte software if you want to try keeping additional fans if the thermals aren't good.
That is an impressive amount of horsepower in a small box!
Digging the sticker bomb too!
+1 from me
Thanks! Yeah I am suspecting the IR is picking up stray heat. I will dig into the delta-T across the two rads.
The next build will have those nifty temperature sensors in it.
Mostly for fun~! It will be used for media downloading into a server.
Thanks for the link, your build looks awesome!
It is a Funko Pop of Arthas
Haha! I have to redo all the temp monitoring. I meant that the internal loop temps in the tubing between components is not consistent. My thermometer has a 10:1 ratio so in theory I should be able to hold up to 10cm away and get just the tube, but I think I'm seeing heat from other components.
Haha! No sorry the parts list needs fixing. 1 was new back in 2011 and the other I bought in eBay.
Wha... is that CPU cooler?!
Dude! Totally awesome!
Talk about a makeover, phew! Honestly I like this better than you're other build. This one obviously took more effort. Don't get me wrong the carbon fiber wrap looks great on the other one, but this build has character!
The only thing to be done different is perhaps go with matte or flat paint as gloss is super hard to make look nice.
It looks like the SLI bridge is routed behind the top card to the bottom card. I can't see it in the final product picture. Hopefully the builder can elaborate.
Firstly, I appreciate the comment and it's candor! This build should've been called Late to the party, again.
Secondly, after a little digging (thanks) it appears from looking at my Newegg history I actually built this system Christmas of 2015 so my remark on the Ryzen release was way off. This computer was technically being built and re-built since Christmas of 2015. I do not recall exactly but I believe the i5 6600 was recently released at the time for about $200 like you said.
The monitors were bought off Craigslist for $200 total. The GPU was a transplant from my Ryzen system. The memory and CPU at the time were only $210 for both. At the time it was a "budget"-ish build and the extra $100 or so wasn't an option.
To be quite frank, I don't like Intel (and Apple for that matter). I've had AMD processors since the ol' K6 & K7 days. Flame on! I have fire-resistant clothing. The only Intel processor I had was a Pentium 2-400 that went into a slot! Boy those were the days! (again, thanks!)
It should be noted that I recommended Intel processors for anyone building their own system until just a few months ago and often times it was Sandy Bridge, Haswell, and Skylake chips instead of newer Kaby, Coffee, etc.
The RGBling I do not consider a performance option. It's just something she wanted for fun and at the time I was able to do that splurge without a problem.
I do agree the FX isn't and hasn't been a great choice. AMD was/is always playing catch-up with Intel just like they are with Nvidia.
My only regret with the system during the holidays of 2015 was buying the R7 370 and then another one! That was the truly terrible choice when I knew that 2 GB of memory was going to be bringing her up short. Then to complicate it with Crossfire, which I will never do again, only made things worse.
I totally accepted the hate that will come from posting an FX build. People asked for it so I provided. It's still fun to click through the pictures, read the specs, and shake one's head :)
As promised here is the companion guide for my wife's matching computer Rainbow Brite.
I haven't put up her PC's guide yet. I will put in the description and comments when I do!
Thanks! I really like the case concept and was going to build a DIY version, but this was much easier!
Thank you! Wasn't love at 1st site, but it's growing on me :)
