Thanks for the feedback. Placement in the house prevented me from using ethernet. My dad's a stickler for the rules as well, so he insisted that I include the price of the software in the build. I know the stock cooler is fine as well. But like I mentioned, the Cryorig is quieter than the stock. I also didn't need a graphics card since my dad doesn't play games! We already had a monitor laying around too. Good advice tho.
This is a bit late, but I can barely hear my PC with the Noctua nf-f12s inside. The pump gets noisy sometimes, but other than that the loudest part is the 1 mechanical drive in there.
I'm not sure if it was mentioned before, but what mount are you using for the H236HL's? I have 2 and the stands take up way too much room on my desk. Hoping to find a decent mounting solution that wont equate to the price of a third monitor.
Dark Rock 3 and H7 do not fit in the Air 240. Cryorig C7 or C5 fit alright. Unsure about the D14 since I don't know its specifications.
cool! thanks for the feedback!
Love the Air 240 build. We share similar taste in mobo and and CPUs as well :) Where do you have the Hue+ mounted? I was thinking about getting one, but I don't think the hub will fit in the 2.5in bay.
I think his point was that OP could have saved money and bought a 6700 non-K sku since overclocking in the 202 with a C7 isn't optimal.
Nice Bleach reference. I would maybe consider routing some of those power cables (like maybe CPU power and mobo power) behind the motherboard tray. Overall good build my friend!
I'm super impressed with how you managed to flex the H100i tubes man! How'd you do it?
Not at all! Unless the SP120 fans are up at max speed I dont hear a thing. Replacing all the fans with Noctua nf-f12 iPPC fans today so I'll let you know what the acoustics are after the upgrade!
Agreed! cable management makes everything look better. Good build tho young sir! Welcome to the PC master race!
If youre using an mATX motherboard you could probably get a really slim fan between the GPU and case wall. On my Asus Maximus VIII Gene, the front panel headers and the Start and Reset buttons would be in the way of a standard 120mm fan.
If you have an ITX motherboard like the GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 then the smaller board size would make it easy to have fans at bottom/side of the case (depending on your orientation).
Also, how does the 1070 FTW fit in the Air 240? I know it's a bit of a wider card compared to the 1070 SC. Any issues with the fit?
The tubes on the H100i v2/GTX are too thick for a second fan. Otherwise I would have.
Super nice build man! Check out my Air 240 build I just finished too. I like the way that you did the CPU block. I kinda forced mine into place with a little bit of elbow grease :p Super clean build though man. I love the white case, but I couldn't resist the black either!
Nothing wrong with a Gigabyte board! I went with the Gene for the extra features like Keybot and other stuff. But the Gigabyte mobo is better price to performance imo.
I can fit a push pull into the case with the 1070, but it's gonna be tight. I actually plan on buying some Noctua fans and moving the SP120's to the pull side.
Also you can't fit 120's in the bottom with an mATX board because it has a clearance issue with some of the pins on the bottom of the board. If you build ITX then you could probably get a whole radiator down there though.
H7 and Dark Rock don't have clearance in the Air 240. If you wanted to use Cryorig you'd have to use the C7 or C1.
Any reason why?
Do some good research on case compatibility. From what I've heard Noctua has some great low profile CPU coolers. You'll probably have a better time regulating temps than I do with all that airflow :P
I went for family but I was too lazy to add that to the overall story. Didn't think it was too important haha.
Haha I was there for family xD The 6700K was a great bonus for the trip though!
Thanks! I completely forgot to add the 240GB 840 EVO and 1TB WD Blue drive I had lying around to the parts list, but those are in there too!
EDIT: Updated. Thanks for reminding me!
+1 for being a lefty! Sweet build man. Super clean!
Awesome build! I would have gotten a Cryorig cooler for the cpu just for aesthetic purposes, but there's nothing wrong here! Great!
Digging the Kingdom Hearts crown! Dope work man! Bravo!
Awesome! Thanks for the feedback. I can't wait to actually put the rig together. My Asus Maximus VIII Gene is supposed to arrive today and then it's just a matter of when I can get my hands on the 1070 SC!
I'm waiting patiently to get my hands on the 1070 SC! Any advice for getting through the traffic cone of despair?
Also wondering what the airflow is like. I want the SC for the aesthetics, but a lot of people are saying that the FE blower style is better for smaller cases like the Air 240, which I also happen to be building in.
I'm wondering the same thing. Also Which 970 did you buy originally? Because I plan on building in this case with the same mobo and I was going for the reference 970.
