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!
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!
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.
