2013 Corsair/ASUS "Fanboy" Build. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
After some various shipping issues I finally got my Platinum.



]
Have to say these look much much better than the Vengeance kit.

Next purchases will probably be NF-F12's for the Rad and maybe some lighting, I'll continue to post as it grows.smile.gif

Looks better with the new ram.
I have a question,does the Matrix cover the second PCI-e x16 conector?is it too tight for 2 Hd 7970 DCU2 to work in crossfire?

That's awesome. I have a similar build with the white 600t, and I guess you could say overall Corsair and Asus fanboy-ism, too. The Thermal Armor looks amazing in these cases.

nice looking build, well done.

just a note. a bitfenix spectre pro 230mm might fit into the front instead of the 200mm. i have the corsair 500r and the 200mm mounting holes are perfect for 230 bitfenix. may be worth checking out.

From what I've seen/read about the DCU2 Coolers, they're about the same as the Matrix and yes it effectively renders the lower PCI useless or atleast I wouldn't want to try fitting another underneath it for the airflow.

I've fitted 2x120mm's in the front for now but yeah I've been looking into that the Bitfenix 230 smile.gif

Noctua fans on the rad? YES. Do it. 100% yes.

Even if you hate the colour scheme, you won't even be able to see them.
