[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club - Page 83

post #821 of 1945
Hi All - seeking your advice on what I can do differently with this set up as currently I am a tad over what I had hoped to spend (note that at this point the only item I have actually bought is the case).

Budget: Originally wanted to keep this build at around $1000 Australian, current parts list have me about $600 over that mark.
Purpose: Video Editing using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Photo Editing with Adobe Lightroom 5.6 and Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Part's List:
Case - Thermaltake Black Core V1 Mini ITX ($65)
PSU - Corsair RM-650 80 Plus Gold ($159)
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z170N WIFI ($245)
CPU - Intel i7 6700K ($519)
CPU Cooling - Corsair Hydro Series H80i GT 120mm Liquid CPU Cooler ($149)
RAM - Corsair Vengeance (2x 8GB @ 2400Mhz) ($179)
SSD (for OS/Programs) - SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB 2.5in SSD ($185)
HD (for storage of photo's and video for editing) - Western Digital WD Red 1TB WD10EFRX ($99)


Notes:I am not so much worried about storage, I have 3x HP N36L Microservers with total 30TB storage. Have left out a GPU at this point as I am not a PC gamer and have seen little additional benefit with the types of rendering being performed (and already over budget).

This could be reduced to a 400-500w psu.

Where are you buying your parts from online so we can the offerings?

If you don't plan overclocking you an get a H series board and a non-k 6700. Also a air cooler would drop cost.

Bought a new PC, see Rigbuilder in description. This case is great, actually quiet good for the price, but one thing that annoys a bit is the blue led light of the power is very bright compared to the tamed hard disk red light , that you can barely see.
Anyone knows any mod to bring down the intensity of the blue led? My only idea is to paint over the led ?

Hi, Why don´t you change the blue LED for another one with less intensity? just remember you need a 5mm LED size that works with 5v. by the way I´m thinking on change the mine with a white LED.

This looks literally exactly like the Core V1. When i looked deeper into it there isnt many noticeable differences between the two, which leads to my speculation, the side panels as well and the front panel seem to have dust filters, something that the Core V1 doesnt have originally. I guess the next thing would be to see if you can use the side and front panels between these two cases interchangeably. When you look at the specs for both, the dimensions are almost exactly the same, the core V1 being 276 x 260 x 316 mm and the suppressor F1 being 276 x 260 x 319 m, literally 3 mm difference between the two in depth but all the rest are the same which could be because of the different front panel. If indeed the front and side panels can be changed out then i might have to see if you can purchase the front panel from the Suppressor F1 since it looks much more sleek than the Core V1 in my opinion although it does seem to restrict air flow more.

not to mention when i looked at the gallery pictures of base cases, there were the same pictures for both of the cases

Thanks for the ideas. I hadn't planned on overclocking at this point, but didn't know if it was worth the flexibility in the event I wanted more out of the system at a later stage. But to cut costs something has to give I guess smile.gif Will also look at a different PSU.

All parts will be coming from - http://www.pccasegear.com/ as this is the cheapest I've seen at the moment.

Just joined here because I plan to put my first build in a Thermaltake Core V1! Read all 83 pages of this forum and I am ridicously impressed with some of the mods and the stuff people can do!
Although I don't plan on trying the crazy watercooling you guys are amazingly putting in that case I am hoping to maybe add a few RGB LED strips so a)it looks grat b) so we can see inside the windows
If you guys could critique the build I've got down so far that would be amazing, thanks!

Thanks!

I use an Enermax ETD-T60 and it keeps my 4670k nice a cool. Only possible issue could be RAM height. My RAM is pretty low profile(G Skill Ares) so I don't have an issue, but it might be something to consider if you decide to go with that cooler. Onlt thing I would consider changing is adding an SSD. Otherwise, everything else looks good

Since SSDs are £30 or £40 I figured I can easily add one later, for now I need space for games, programmes, music and all that
In terms of that Enermax, are you running it overclocked? My i5 is non k but idk I feel like I may as well get an aftermarket cooler because why not, I think I might stick to the one I've selected, but now I am worried about the ram and the CPU cooler, think the might be okay. Anyway to find out you know of?

Mild overclock up to 4ghz and temps stay in the low 60s. I switched to the Enermax from a Corsair H55 cooler and temps are within a few degrees of each other. Best way to check CPU and RAM clearance is just to read user reviews to see if its ever mentioned. Just taking a quick glance at the one you selected, it looks like it'll be fine. I was temporarily using a Coolermaster TX3 when I first built the rig and that worked very well too

Hello

just signed it today after reading in&out this thread for few weeks.
I bought the case few weeks ago to build a simple,no fuss,gaming pc.will certainly mod it in the future by paiting the case,put some LEDs and also squeeze in an optical drive

My set is a Z97N mobo from gigabyte,a 750ti GFX card also from gigabyte and then an Intel g3258 in view of OCing it in the short term

and that's the problem I am having today,hoping someone here could help with my concerns.
I see CPU temps at idle around 40-45degC in what is no longer an Hot summer here in Japan where I live.

I have been reading lots of threads around about this CPU with people having stock CPU idle no load temps around 30degC so I wonder what is wrong with mine then.
when I do some stress test with aida64 or intelburn I got CPU load temps around 80degC so I am worried to go for Ocing now and making early harms to the CPU

if anything,could it be the stock cooler I am using and the way I seat it when building my rig or the thermal paste quality?

what is maybe another possibility is that the actual CPU core voltage seems high for the 3.2gHz stock frequency,I got indeed readings around 1.120V

I am also considering the actual influence of the case cooling,maybe silly but I feel the 200mm fan is acting as an exhaust wher I saw the advert from thermaltake mentioning it act as intake to bring cool air inside the case.
Is there a way to alter the exhaust or intake behavior?

sorry my concerns might not be all related to the case itself but if some knowledgeable people here could confirm if nothings really wrong with my CPU as is and I shouldn't worry too much or suggest some way to improve my CPU cooling if you really feel like me there is a problem then I would appreciate

thanks in advance

regards from Japan,its a great forum and thread here!

Olivier
