That user does not seem to have posted anything lately. I would recommend a private message as it may go to the users email(if the user still checks it).

It honestly looks like a white led strip under the case by the dots reflected off the desk. They may well be leftover from a strip used to light behind the monitor.

I don't think that he is using a fan but a LED strip for that, just look at that 4 stronger spots

I made the same thing because i cannot check the On/off LED on the case when I'm going to unplug from the outlet


I stuck the led strip on the front pannel because if they OP (5050 SMD) if pointed downwards

So a while back I bought the Silverstone FT03 and I haven't opened it since (due to incorrect timing etc). So now when I want to start gathering the parts together and building i'm contemplating on what I want to do with it.

1. My main problem - Deciding whether I, someone that has never built a PC before should build this as my first ever pc. OR Finding someone that is a PC Specialist to come to my house and build it for me OR Just sell the case and purchase a easier one.

If someone could give their opinion on that problem that would be great.

2. If I decide to keep the case and attempt to build I need anyone on here to help me out with the parts and whether they will fit together etc

Now I currently have Corsair 900D case and here are the specs
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CASE: Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Full Tower Gaming Case

Thanks!

I don't see any problem with having the FT03 as your first own-built case. The instruction manual from Silverstone is very explicit and helpful. Motherboard manuals are a lot better than they were.

Although this thread itself isn't super active, you can ask for help in the appropriate subforum of OCN and often get a quick response. For example this section http://www.overclock.net/f/6/intel-motherboards has a thread for your RIVG board

One suggestion I have: you have selected a 750W power supply. It's too much. If the GTX650 Ti you list in your 900D build is the intended GPU, then your system will probably not use more than 200W unless under synthetic high stress. I would recommend the ST55F-G or ST65F-G instead. (They are also smaller, perhaps easier to fit.)

Hi, (first post)
After viewing all the great rigs in this thread I've convinced the wife to let me build a new computer for use in the living room! Thanks guys!
I'm planning an ft03 mini build with a 4790k and an asus z97I plus mobo, gtx970,....primary use gaming.

I'm a little stuck on the cpu cooler.
I would like to do some overclocking with my chip and have been asked not to do a full water cooling sysystem(the wife didn't apriciate the amount of time I spent on it)

From what I've read the aio coolers work well, h80i being about the biggest if your willing to give up the cd/3.5/2.5 hdd tray?
With the case being so small Is there an an recommended air cooler? I think the NH-L12 would fit in low profile config with my mobo but my guess is the performance will be sub par? :/
Any thoughts/comments suggested things to check out would be much appreciated.

Hi @pain07 welcome to OCN!

A H60 is usually enough for some mild overclocking, and it allows you to keep the drive trays. I don't think the few degrees benefit of H80i is worth the extra trouble. If you want a higher overclock on Ivy/Haswell then delidding the CPU will do more for your temperatures, and therefore the stability, that a little bit thicker radiator.

For FT03-mini, you really need a reference style GPU. For example the EVGA GTX 970 04G-P4-1970-KR or the Superclocked version 04G-P4-1972-KR. These are 9.5" (241mm) so fit perfectly and have a closed-shroud which helps exhaust heat from the case.

Ah, sorry...yes I have the sc version of the gpu you mentioned. I was actually asking about air cooling for the cpu?
Or is it just worth it to go for the h60?

I would take the H60 but that's because I'm useless at air cooling these days. No idea what heatsink fits what motherboard. Water cooling block CPU compatibility is easier smile.gif

Best ask in the air cooling subforum smile.gif
