[OCN LABS] First Build of 2020! The Vulcan Build Ft Team Group T-Force Vulcan SSD and Vulcan Z DDR4



Hello good people of Overclock, I am bluedevil. Meet the Vulcan build, my first build of 2020. This PC build was inspired by all the grey components, giving it kinda a volcanic look. Housed in the BeQuiet! Pure Base 500, which mind you has a new version that was announced at CES called the Pure Base 500DX, providing power is the Silverstone SX700-G SFX PSU, with memory and an SSD from T-Force, subsequently the DDR4 is named Vulcan Z, and the SSD, Vulcan. Also present is my older but fully capable Asus Z370 Maximus Code X motherboard, with my 8700K, cooled by a DeepCool Castle 240EX. Handling graphics, is a Nvidia RTX 2080 Super founders edition. So why don’t I get my build on, as well as some benchmarks.



























So a few things to get out of the way, does the Pure Base 500 really support 3 140mm fans in the front. No it’s not officially supported, but I did manage to fit 3 Silent Wings 3 140mm fans, really supporting 2 140mm fans or 3 120mm fans with supporting radiators.


Alight OCNer's I hope you enjoyed the Vulcan build, I know I love how it came out. Thanks again to BeQuiet!, Team Group and Silverstone for supplying the parts. If you could drop a like and a sub, it’s much appreciated!

bluedevil out.

Oh I almost forgot, ratings.

BeQuiet! Pure Base 500


Airflow was a slight issue, temps slightly higher than anticipated. Same BeQuiet features, smaller package. Great case for the money!


Silverstone SX700-G


Great SFX PSU, if using cable extensions, cables are perfect lengths.


Team Group T-Force Vulcan SSD


Low key, straight to the point SATA SSD.


Team Group T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4-3200


Low profile DDR4 ram that fits into just about any build.

Looks great dude. I just rebuilt mine too. Would love some feedback, I did a full build log here and it hasn't gotten much of any replies If you click Pics in my sig it'll go right to the build process pictures

I would've liked to see more of the cable management process + rear panel after full cable managing, maybe next time, or you can post a photo. Either way it looks great and the case was a nice choice, as it matches the "tactical" esque dark green-gray of the board and the cooler. I went for a powder coated dark gray and chrome for mine which matched my board well

Anyway, good work, greetings from the Badger State too

I actually have a little snippet of that. Sorry it didn't make it into the video.

It looks good. Using sleeved extensions myself in my last build, and having used them for years (including from Bitfenix and TTMods/Thermaltake) I know how rigid they are.

If you feel open to suggestions or improving it- maybe you know this already- there's a little vertical groove on the left side of that photo, where you put your PCI-E extensions through at the bottom. This is a cable management groove and maybe you'd notice that its about the thickness of the stock psu 24-pin connector lead. Ideally you would want to route that into that groove going up and anything else that can be (for example, take your pci-extensions out and off then run the pci-e cables from the psu into this groove, fold them down on themselves and tuck them into the groove, then attach your extensions and run them the same way. Do this for as many wires as you can)... if that makes sense. The way you ran all the wires up already looks really good, if you undo the nylon velcro cable ties and move all those vertical runs of cables over to the left and into the groove it'll look even cleaner.

My case has a similar cable management groove and it really is a pretty great innovation in case design recently. Though with 3 hdds, a SSD, 2 GPUs that each require 2 8 pin, my motherboard requiring both 4 pin ATX and 8 pin EPS power connectors, etc it didn't help much

Also I realize why that 24 pin is like that, to keep it flat where it connects to the extension, to be able to put the panel on.

Anyway there's my two cents on the cables and it looking great from the visible side matters more than the back that only you will ever see Don't take my criticism seriously but I wondered if maybe you knew the purpose of the cable management groove.

Yeah I seen that cable groove there. I have used them in the past, which I will be doing for an upcoming case review (which is under NDA).
