In Win 805 Owners Club - Page 21

post #201 of 409
Advice needed!

I just ordered this case (IN WIN 805 Gold) and in my signature you can see the build items that I have.

I want to do two (2) ASUS Radeon R9 Fury X (liquid cooled) crossfire graphics cards.

Any advice on getting both of the 140mm radiators in this case?

Let us not forget the 240mm radiator for the Corsair HX100i CPU liquid cooler as well.

Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Stormy

Not easy by any means. The only solution I can see is to have one in the rear exhaust fan (usual spot) and one down the bottom in the 120mm fan location. You may need to make it fit though as I haven't seen one mounted there before, this will also require removing the HDD cage. The other option is to make a cutout in the case at the top and mount 1 there.

Hey guys just got my 805i in time to start getting this built I will be checking in after everything is finished!

I'm about done just going to keep working on cable management. It was fun and challenging. I've never owned a mid tower before.

Hi,

So I've been reading through this thread- I'm getting a 6800k / evga 1080 FTW / evga G2 750W / X99 Asus Taichi / Inwin 805i, and plan on aircooling.

To confirm, I should move the HDD cages up a bit, add 2x120mm intake fans on the bottom, use the 120mm exhaust fan on rear, and add another 120mm fan on the front (facing which direction?) right? I'm also thinking of getting the Noctua U12S as CPU radiator - would be this enough to cool everything?

Also maybe SLIing 1080s in a year or two, is the case big enough? Also thinking of getting both SSD and HDDs - not sure if there is space once I move up the HDD cage? Saw someone shove a HDD in the back of the case near the PSU, so maybe that could work - but would that affect the longevity of the HDD in any way?

Sorry for the many questions! Been around 5-6 years since I built anything. Thanks so much

Some amazing builds in here! Here is my own:





More photos and build description available at PCPP.

@hyperblast Regarding your question about dual GTX 1080s, it is indeed possible. However, I did not use the HDD cage as you can see. Wanted to give the two 1080s as much airflow as possible. If you were to use the HDD cage, it would reduce the airflow to the cards somewhat (unless you put it at top front). Also, note that 3.5" HDDs do generate a lot of heat, so that will add to the thermal load that must be exhausted out of your system. It could possibly affect the temperature of the air that the 1080s would be taking in, as well as the CPU cooler.

Another thing to consider is that you plan on using the EVGA FTW version of the 1080s. This traditional style of GPU cooler will spread the hot air from the GPUs inside the case. I had also considered non-blower type 1080s since they seemed to keep GPU temps down during load, but then considered the fact that the 805 only has one 120 mm exhaust, so the entire case with dual 1080s of the normal GPU cooler type might become a very hot box. Hence, I went with the Founders Edition cards so that the heat would be exhausted out of the case. (In essence, I have three fans exhausting heat out of the case.)

And as for your question about the Noctua NH-U12S as the cooler, compared to the Dark Rock TF I used, seems like it performs similarly at overclock, but not as good at stock. See some charts here.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Hey guys,

Just finished my build inside the 805i, loving it, what a beautiful case! Looks more like a work of art than a computer this thing.

Question regarding the Halo software. Seems to be pretty crappy IMO. I sat there for hours during the build trying to work out why the LEDs weren't lighting up, then realized it was because the lights won't even activate before you have the software installed. Is there any way of having the LEDs light up the next time you turn the computer on in the last setting they were set to? And when I boot into Windows they still don't light up, I have to manually open the Halo software for anything to happen, which is ridiculous to have to do something like this every time you turn the computer on. Can't find a settings page in the program either to get it to open when Windows starts. Any tricks around this?

I have the LEDs plugged into the motherboard via the USB header on the LED controller.

Cheers,
Jacob

I ran into this issue when I finished my build. It's a very easy fix what you'll need to do is create a shortcut and place that shortcut into the startup folder, I'm not at home right now to see exactly what the file path is to that start up folder but you can find the location if you google search. As soon as you place it in there the Halo program will open up when you start your pc. One thing to mention is that from my experience the halo program will start up with the first setting which is static. I tried the breathing feature but it wouldn't save. Hope this helps
post #209 of 409
Hmmm ok. Tried your suggestion, put a copy of the shortcut in both locations I could find on Google (C:\Users\jacob\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup & C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp) and tried numerous restarts but Halo software still does nothing until I open it manually. I created the shortcut by going to C:\Program Files (x86)\IN-WIN\HALO right clicking on HALO.exe and selecting Send to > Desktop (create shortcut), then copy/pasting to those directories. I know each time I open it, it comes up with a UAC prompt. Does that have something to do with it? Won't open the program automatically because of the UAC settings? Thanks for your help.

Appreciate your help, but still seems like a bit of a funny fix, loving everything about this case but the software could definitely be better. Guess the only way to bypass that would be to have a motherboard with a header for the LEDs directly right?

Cheers,
Jacob
