Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 7

post #61 of 3052
Well I'm up and running - decided in the end to go with the impact and 4670k - couldn't resist I suppose.
My phone is taking garbage pictures at the present so anything else will have to wait.

4670k
h100i
770 DCII
2x4GB G.Skill Ares with the heatspreaders removed
Overkill 760 PSU
WD Black 1 TB and Evo 120
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Idle temps on the CPU AND GPU are both around 35c -- I'm having a tough time getting Corsair Link control over my h100 with windows 8.1 so that could be a pain.
I really like the 250D - My gripes would probably be the 5.25 bay - the side panel fit and thumbscrews - cable length and .5 to 1 inch more width. The HD/SSD enclosure/area is really cute and works well. Time to find some shorter cables and we'll be good to go thumb.gif

Hi ! I am very interested in building one of these things. But I want to connect it to a Apple 27" thunderbolt screen.

Does anyone have any idea which component I should use, in term of ITX board and GFX to get it working without tweeking too much ?

Right now I play on a older 7970 an i7 2600k.

But I kinda want to build a Apple/Gamer stylish. And use bootcamp on it, so the computer will act as a Apple computer and a Windows Gamer.

If Apple's iMac or Mac pro was build more modular and more towards gaming ( I know Apple computers are not meant to be gamer pc's) then I would have bought them straight away !

I hope someone can help rolleyes.gif

I'm guessing you're wanting to build a Hackintosh? You may want to start HERE. That's a list of Hackintish Compatible mini ITX boards. Just a bit of googling should find you other components that have been tried and are known to work. Shouldn't be too difficult to pull something together on the cheap.

Just to be clear, you have the monitor only right? Just like the Apple Cinema Display, but the updated thunderbolt monitor?

I have the 27" Apple Cinema Display connected to my GTX 780 with this adapter. I've used this adapter on a 580, 7970, intergrated GPU, etc and works great.

post #66 of 3052
Just ordered a 250D off Amazon UK, apparently they will ship tomorrow biggrin.gif

My current build sits inside a CM Elite 130 which is a great case for the money, but things are a little too cramped for my taste and since the PSU sits right atop the CPU socket I can't utilize the 2nd fan for my Noctua cooler.

Parts currently installed inside Elite 130:

Asus Maximus VI Impact
i7 4771K
Noctua NH-L12 low profile cooler
2x8GB Crucial Ballistix 1600Mhz
512gb Samsung 840 Pro SSD (for games)
128gb Adata SP900 SSD (OS drive)
2tb WD Green HDD (for data)
GTX 780 Ti reference (Palit)
HX1000 PSU (yes, it fits inside the Elite 130!)


Funny thing is, I initially started this build as an HTPC project but somewhere along the way I decided to turn it into my main rig. Love the mini-ITX form factor!

Question: where can I find these 5,25" adapters that allow for a slim optical drive + USB card reader?

StarTech.com Slim Optical 3.5-Inch Hard Drive Mounting Bracket for 5.25-Inch Front Bay

Just be aware, it only comes with an IDE adapter for the slim drive so you will have to purchase a SATA adapter seperately. rolleyes.gifTHIS is the adapter I ordered. But I ended up not needing it because the Archgon Slot-Load BluRay drive I ordered came with one.

Well, I am going to buy the monitor and it seems like the only one I can get is the new thunderbolt version which I don't mind since all my other gear is from Apple.

That leads me to build a (Hackin Tosh) Since I want to game and have the benefits a normal/gaming pc have. But have all the options as a Apple computer have.

Your setup looks like the one I am aiming for. But does the connector works with the new screen straight away ?

Thanks for the swift answer!

EDIT: parts ordered!
