Well, took some time but I'm done now
Intel core I7 - 6700K
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X
Asus Maximus Impact VIII
2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB (Not shown In picture)
1x Samsung 850 evo 250GB SSD
G.Skill TridentZ DDR4-3200 C14 DC - 32GB (2x16gb)
CoolerMaster V650 PSU - 650W Gold
4x Be Quiet! Silent Wings 3 140mm PWM
Kraken X61 WaterCooling
First off - Good case, love the size of the thing. But ended beeing kinda of a "hard" build, because of the temps and that I wanted to make It dead silent.
This Is what It's suppose to look like^^
This Is after some cutting and the final result
Running silent fans all over, so can't barly hear anything from the case. But still, because of the modding I was able to get the I7 6700k up to 4.6 Ghz at 1.31V. Temps Idle is about 30-34 degrees.
The problem with the "normal" holes that was In the chassis, Is that when you get some good quality fans, you get noise from the fans trying to suck air tru those small holes in the chassis. So i decided to get It more "cold and silent" by just cutting It away.
Then you have the PCH and VRM that In the start (before the mods) was crawling up to 70-75 degrees - WAY to hot for comfort, so I ended up bungie strapping two 80mm silent fans inside the case. The fans was locked Into a V symbol, so if the temps reach 55 degrees, they turn on and cool off the VRM and PCH. After running AIDA 64 with stresstest on Ram, cache and CPU - Combined with running Vally benchmark for the GPU. My components ended up with these temps with an ambient room temp about 24-25 degrees:
*temp range Celcius final result -- 5 hours test time*
CPU: 64 - 68 (overclock 4,6ghz)
Ram: 44 - 47 (3200mhz XMP profile, 1,35 volt)
GPU: 68 ( overclock +125mhz core and 300mhz vram )
So combined I now have 9 fans because I also found out that the GPU was getting way to hot. Not because I't did'ent get enough air from outside, but all the air that was pushed into the case, was trapped. So before all mods It could get all the way up to 75 degrees (and maybe worse If I had let the test run longer *30 mins*). So i modded in a thrid 80mm fan into the case right beside the PSU in the front. And because of the cutting and space issues in the chassis, i decided to put the fan controller under the front panel.
This fan Is triggered by the PCH temps, because the PCH Is so close to the gpu that when the gpu heats up, the pch follows. So at 55 degrees for the pch this fan also turns on to push air out of the "heat bubble" that normally was created on the side of the GPU. Now the air is wented into the front panel, and pushed out the rills in the front.
And then some final pictures of the cable management:
And last picture - after i bungiestrapped the two 80mm fans (only see one fan, because the other is right behind it) *I had to remove 1x 140mm fan from the radiator. So It runs on 3 fans instead of 4.
So the conclusion. Loved It! Went from a fractal Define S, and this was really a neat and tiny build. But It's heavy as F*** x)
Forgot to mention - Have also put in silent isulated pads all over the chassis to make It more silent and changed from the original Asus Strix 1070 to an MSI Gtx 1070 (because of the more silent fans)
Cheers guys! Hope you liked it Edited by Dizato1 - 9/29/16 at 7:45am
