[OCN Showcase] Bitfenix Enso Mesh gaming build by Duality92





Hi everyone! Today I bring you a three part build log that will cover by showcase build in the Bitfenix Enso Mesh. This build consist of the following hardware:

CPU : AMD Threadripper 2950X (Overclocked to 4.2 GHz on all cores)
Motherboard : Aorus X399 Xtreme
RAM : Aorus B-Die RGB memory 32GB (4*8GB with 4 dummy sticks)
GPU : Aorus RTX 2080 Xtreme with CableMod Vertical GPU bracket
PSU : Bitfenix Formula Gold 750W
Storage : Gigabyte 256GB NVME x2 in RAID 0
Fans : Bitfenix Spectre ARGB 120mm (7x total)
CPU cooler : Thermaltake Floe 360
Accessories : Bitfenix ARGB LEDs.

The build updates will be in three parts consisting of Bitfenix hardware showcase, Bitfenix hardware installation along with finished build pictures.

This case was a pleasure to work in, the only issue I had was passing through two 8-pin EPS through the mid-plate cutout for these, it’s very minor but worth noting.

I’m not going to hold you guys any longer, here’s the case, fans, LEDs and PSU!

Sweet looking build and a great looking case. Just curious, why did you go with a non-modular PSU?

"dummy sticks"? I assume these are blank PCBs in the DDR4 format with matching heat spreaders but where does one get something like that? Or did you make them from parts?

Edit:

Ok, I googled it. Holy cow ... matching (but empty) RGB ram sticks to complement your existing real ram. I agree with the Tom's Hardware article that described it as solving a "first world problem". Still, makes for a nice build without paying the current DDR4 ransom.

It was the power supply supplied for the build, it's actually quite well rated to boot. It's just non-modular, but with shroud these days, you can see that it's basically a non-issue.

Nailed it with that edit! Makes you not need to buy 64GB to populate everything!

That looks really clean. I see now why it doesn't matter that the PSU isn't modular. I didn't see that the shroud covered the entire bottom of the case originally

Yeah, with shrouds these days, modular PSUs aren't as needed as they used to!
