BeQuiet! Dark Base Pro 900 Vs Phanteks EVOLV Tempered Glass ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to buy my first and beautiful gaming rig and the thing i really can't decide on is do i wait for the Dark Pro 900 or just go with the EVOLV tempered glass edition case.
If im going with the Dark Pro il probably go with the 1080TI but if i go with the Evolv im not sure i might get the Non-TI 1080.
By the way this is not only a gaming rig this is also a video-editing rig (no high end rendering just colorful music videos for electronic music maybe more complex in the future).

Motherboard: Asus Maximus VIII Hero Alpha.
CPU: i7 6700K.
CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i or NZXT Kraken X61.
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Red LED 32GB (2 x 16GB) 3000 MHz or 3200 MHz.
GPU: 1080 or 1080TI, depends on the release date and performance of the TI against the non-TI. don't want to be one of those who wanted high-end and went 980 and then felt heartbroken when the 980TI came out.
PSU: Corsair AX1200i.
SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB.
HHD: Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB.
Keyboard: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Rapidfire or K95 RGB.
Mouse: Logitech G502 RGB or Corsair M65 RGB.
System: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit.
Monitor: Acer Predator X34P G-Sync Ultra Wide (3440x1440@100hz)

Basically I'm 20 years old and i never had a gaming pc in my whole life.
My PC is out of date , if you go to my channel and see the latest video it took me 4-5 hours to render that.
Links for my video:

Links for what kind of video's i plan to render with new rig:

I wanto to render those kinds of video's in a minutes and not hours frown.gif

So basically for over a year now i've been saving up and wanting to build my first system and let it be my high-end dream system gift of heavens pc.
I also plan to render my "music videos" on it and in the future render more complex stuff as my channel grows.

PS: i chose an AX1200i because i plan to SLI in the future (maybe 2 1080TI's).
plus it has red in it and i want a red/black or red/purple/black PC.

What do you guys think for the case choice and small choices like cpu cooler,gpu, keyboard,mouse. what do i chose and is there a better choice not listed.

First thing, welcome.

For the price you are willing to pay for the MB and CPU, you could as well go X99 and the fact that you want to render even better.

Yes, tough choice between to two cases but I would go with the Evolv for pure looks, modularity(lol not even a word) then the DB 900.

AX1200i is not need for SLI especially on these new cards. Also I would consider corsair's new line of PSUs - RMx/RMi

Forget the Kraken
Forget the M65, if anything get the PRO version of that
