[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club - Page 118

post #1171 of 1945
Hi there,

I have a Corsair H90i + TT core V1 build, and with the advent of the GTX 1080 from Nvidia, I'm just wondering if someone has built
a nice setup with CPU and GPU liquid cooled ?
I know EKWB are doing a lot of things (1080 recently announced), and just want to know of any core V1 + CPU/GPU liquid cooled.

Thanks for any input.

Check out my build... I've put in a k|ngp|n with my 6700k both water cooled just to give you an idea. You will have an advantage because of the pcb for the 1080 is not as large as the KP. So your routes would be easier per say as you don't have to modify the case in any way, but then that would take the fun out of it... biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Hi, I was trying to fit ASUS Gtx 970 Strix inside the case and for some strange reason the back of the card is very close to the front part frame of the case and the second fan isn't spinning. Not sure if is a case defect or I have to refit motherboard. Any thoughts?

@killrMODZ,

Wow, very impressive setup ! I gathered (hardly) you have a single loop, here. I think this is my upgrade path, with the 1080, but again, not right now ...

FYI, you may consider changing the MB to ASUS Maximus VIII Impact. The reason I'm mentioning this, is I have the VII (chipset Z97) and the
automatic overclocking capabilities are awesome. Don't know for the Gigabyte gaming, though ...

Quick one, what was the total cost of your build ?

For the length, have a look at http://thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002373
States the Strix (280 mm) will fit into max length of the core V1, even if outer chassis (285 mm). So, yes very close.

For the second fan not spinning, if it still doesn't under load, I'd return the card.

It isn't spinning because frame is blocking it.

After putting rubber piece between card shroud and a case frame.

Best air cooler that fits in this case without any modification?

So far, it seems that the Thermaltake nic L31/L32 or the Cryorig H7 seems to be the best as far as performance goes.
Any other suggestions?

The Noctua NH-U9S fits fine too, 125mm high. It has a 92mm fan but cools my CPU pretty good.
