Hey sorry for the late reply! Yes the case has been amazing over time. It does get more dust but that's also because it has a lot more ventilation
The drive system is very modular. I only kept the drive bay with 2 slots in the basement of the rig. I took out all of the extra ones at the top. 2 SSDs can also fit in front the motherboard. So if you need to use 2 or 1 Hard drives (3.5 inch) then use the 2 slot bay in the basement. If you're using more than 2 hard drives and 2 ssds then use the included bay in the top portion of the case so that you don't block the gpu. Hope that helps
you should put your GTX 1070 in the first or 2nd lane.
Nice tennis ball!
Thanks, you got a pretty amazing build yourself!
Ahaha thanks a lot!
Yeah theyre awesome! The cable combs are a pain to install though.
Yeah thats true, reason for the rad pushing air out was so the hot rad air can go straight out of the case rather than coming in. But yeah youre right
Thanks! Yeah that makes more sense
I probably should've done that!
LOL! Nice way to put it!
Yeah the front was exhaust so I made the rear and top intake to get a neutral airflow in the case.
Thanks! Yeah he loved it
It really is! Thank you!
Nice build! Why dont you try uninstalling the Aura software, the go to your motherboard's specific website (just google the model name of your mobo), then go to support and reinstall the latest Aura software under the utilities tab
Ahaha that would be awesome....maybe ill do that mod
Ed! Whens PC Wars coming? Nice build btw
Yeah the arctic one is pretty nice, whatever I wrote wasn't factual, its just based on what I researched and didnt really come across that one until you mentioned it. Thanks!
Yeah probably, but Ill get it by like summer or september if anything. I sure hope it lasts me at least 5 years.
Yeah same here but the dust...
NP! Send me a message if you need any help!
Yeah it's kinda odd, usually build are here for 3-4 days. its been 8 so far. Maybe Manirelli is on vacation :P
Thanks! Yeah the PSU is kinda overkill but the price difference between the 650 and 750 was like $10 back when i was ordering so i got this. Plus it helps if I ever decide to do SLI
Yeah I really love them, I mean yeah they arent designed for gaming but theyre awesome for everything and really comfortable.
Yup, I got the 6850K for a lot less than the regular price, less than half of the price you might see up there.
Definitely! The 732.25 is the regular price ($649.99) + tax (13%). They regular price also fell now due to I guess Samsung trying to get rid of the older models in prep for newer models. But yeah for $500 and under id highly recommend. I paid less than that so i was really happy.
Thanks! Really? it barely has and GPU sag on it, maybe ill get a holder soon
Nope, directly to the mobo
Yes i heard about that so I went with the Asus. Also, this has a higher boost clock as far as I know.
Yeah I was thinking of overclocking it...
And yes youre right, Id need SLI 1070 or even 1080 for getting over 60fps in most 4k games.
There's actually a grill in the front, you can see it in the 5th pic, It just looks awesome without it as well.
Yeah I normally would've but I got the 6850K for really cheap so I went with that instead.
oh really? Its tough coughing up 13% every time eh? And then they take like 20-40% of your income when you first get it anyways lol. Oh well free healthcare right ;P
Fellow Canadian, but I'm your friendly neighbour to the east. From Ontario.
Thanks! and no problem, it was fun!
LOL I CAN EXPLAIN:
I got the 6850K brand new for much cheaper than the 6700K, so I went with that :P
I got the 1070 because I wasn't originally planning on getting a 4k monitor and so a 1070 would be powerful enough. I might sell this in a few months and get a 1080 or get another 1070 and run SLI.
I feel like this is a troll....
I know, but its an additional $40-50 CAD for a good one and so im using LAn and getting near gigabit speeds.
That sounds awesome, I cant imagine how easy life would be with just 5% tax, we poor Ontarians...lol
The front looks great!
Haha! If only I could...
