LAN was actually one of the easier ones.
Most of the ports were accessible, but not easily. I had to buy some low profile plugs, cut other plugs up a bit and then plug them all in before I mounted the rad.

Ah man... I received the In Win 901 and am stuck between returning it or not. The Lian Li PC-O5SX is just to die for...

Edit - Just received notification from Newegg the PC-O5SX is in stock, my 901 is going to UPS tomorrow redface.gif

Hi folks,

So I went ahead and built my rig! I'm still fairly new to all this so any tips and suggestions are very welcome.
Final specs are:

I5 6600K
Asus Maximus Impact VIII
NZXT Kraken X31
16GB Corsair Vengeance 2666MHz
Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming
EVGA 750 G2
120GB 850 evo SSD
1TB WD Blue

I've still got some tinckering to do so will give cable management another shot next week wink.gif






Overall I'm really happy with the build. The rear I/O layout of the maximus isn't ideal though, so the USB cables were a bit of a pain to fit. Also, as the maximus doesn't have usb 2 headers I have had to run a cable into the rear I/O to connect it up; not perfect but it works!

My only real concern at the moment though is the ridiculous amount of vibration caused by the 1T HDD. It's literally vibrating my whole desk. So any advice on how to sort this out would be very much appreciated!

One more thing. For the time being I just shoved in an old 120mm antec case fan for the intake but want to change this to something better. Should I be looking at High Static presssure fans? Or airflow fans for this?

Thanks!

A high airflow fan will do well for the intake since you need quite a lot of air pushed in there, for the PSU, and outtake radiator fan.

as for the HDD, I have no idea. I have two hard drives in the cage actually, 1TB and 2TB WD blues and I can hear them, but can't realy feel them vibrating as much. Did you screw them in really well? Maybe try to get a slim piece of rubber between the drive and the cage so when you slide it in it has a little pressure on the connector, that could keep it still.

Then again, it could be the drive itself, which drive do you have?

Thanks for the reply. Yeh I'll have a look tonight at some fans. Is there any you would suggest?

It's also a WD blue. So far I've removed it and given the screws a good tightening which seems to have made a difference. Not vibrating the desk anymore so that's good!

great to hear. Well, depends on what you want, if you're not after silence then any fan at high RPM will push tons of air, but if you are you might go for a more premium solution, like a Noctua fan or some others, I have a nanoxia deep silence PWM for the intake for example.
