Finished my Skylake build tonight.

NZXT S340 Black
Intel i7-6700k
Asus Maximus Hero VIII
16GB G-Skill Rip Jaw V 3200mhz
Sapphire Fury X
256GB Samsung 850 Pro
1TB Samsung 850 Evo
NZXT X61 280mm AIO
EVGA Supernova PS 1000w
2 x 120mm and 1 x 140mm Fractal Design Venturi Fans

Build went great. This is my first atx case build in 10+ years. Been mostly building matx and itx, so it was nice to have all this space and cable tie downs to have a clean build. Only issue was that I planned on going crossfire 390x so went ahead with the 1000w power supply, ended up Fury X instead. Everything posted just have to load windows. Super quiet right now with out tweaking and fan settings. Happy with the way it came out. Probably going to wait till next week to install Windows. Thinking about getting a Samsung 950 Pro.

Wow, nice! I like it. If you haven't already id recommend you check out SpeedFan. You can control all the pwm fans with it. I use it because i like to ramp cpu (intake) fans up when the gpu is getting hot.

This is really nicely done. I wasn't sure If I was going to do liquid cool, but I may. If I do, I would also do the NZXT Kraken. The jury is still out.

Its a little confusing at first but once you start to get it figured out its really handy.

Click configure
Click advanced tab
Click the drop down arrow for "chip"
Mine is IT8721 at $290 on IAS yours might differ. Select it.
Look for PWM Mode 1, PWM Mode 2, Etc.
Select the pwm mode and use the "set to" drop down to set it up for software controlled.

Now you have control of that fan header with SpeedFan.

Use the Fan Control tab to plot fan speed with sensor temps. You can use several temps to plot one fan. For example my cpu/intake fans ramp up with CPU temp, core temp, and gpu temp. I have max of speeds set. Basically even if my cpu is cool the cpu fans will speed up if the gpu is getting hot that will put fresh air in the case for the gpu to use.

A S340 showed up at my door recently smile.gif Time to replace my white Corsair 500R.

Start the 500R tear down


Round 1 of my build "refresh".





I was hoping my Prolimatech Genesis heatsink with cougar 140mm fans (on the heatsink) would fit. In fact it didnt even cross my mind until I went to close the case... neither the fan nor the heatsink fit. I could trim the heatsink pipe thats the issue and throw on a 120mm fan or.... Im thinking of getting a Kracken x61. Some white sleeved cables too. Eventually, would like to upgrade my gpu and put in a custom water cooled loop.

Photo editing/ gaming/ workstation rig:
Dual boot OSX and Win7
3770K OC to 4.6Ghz
Gigabyte z77x-UD5H
16GB Corsair Vengence
Gigabyte 650 TI Boost
2x SSDs
1x 2TB HDD

Its a very nicely done build. It is a shame though about the cooler frown.gif

That was the first thing that came to my mind - Will that CPU cooler fit in the S340? wink.gif That is one of the very few negatives of this case, max 160mm CPU cooler height. That and only 1 fan mount in the top.

Nice system, looks great! smile.gif Amazing how much cleaner the same components look when put in this case vs a more traditional case with visible drive bays . Very difficult to make a build look bad in an S340. thumb.gif

Um no you can't. Well I mean I can't stop you but you realise that cutting a heatpipe destroys it, right? Your temps will not be good thereafter. It's far better to cut the side panel and have it stick out than to ever think of touching a heatpipe.

Thanks for the concern, the comment was kind of tongue in cheek. I was never actually considering it. However, It would be interesting to compare the performance between 6 heat pipes but 1x 140mm fan on one of the radiators vs 5 heat pipes and adding a 120mm fan on the 2nd radiator, I'm guessing the performance might be pretty similar. Obviously not as good as a fully intact heat sink with dual 140mm fans though.

I have a Kraken x61 on the way so it will be a non issue by the end of the week!
