>got the noctua back in because much better temps
At least it looks tidy on the outside
Aaahhnn, she's a beaut~
Cleaned up the cabling a bit more.
This is as good as it's going to get with this case.
Absolute perfect cable management wasn't top priority with Lian Li regarding this case.
That's okay. I've been watching the temps again and the GPU never goes over ~65 when playing a game.
I thought about that, but I would be concerned about them getting too hot up there. Would they?
Also was planning on cutting the rack in half so the top intake can provide better airflow.
Probably not, you'd just be getting normal temps. And SSDs doesn't produce much heat, right?
Give it a shot, move back if you feel like it. Better than cutting the rack IMHO.
Yes it is small and very difficult to hide all power and sata cables. but i am pretty satisfied that i got all black pcbs and the rest silver aluminium.
I really wanted to. I got so used to that with previous cases.
But, that's how my other HDD broke. The bugle all the cables made was just too much, and I used a little too much force trying to make the side panel stay in place.
That bent the rack slightly and busted the transfer connectors on the drive.
A shame, since it had all my music and movies. Oh well, I'll get it all back in time.
>le plastic gaymur fan company maymay xDDD amirite guys
all /v/ faggots deserve to be exterminated
It isn't too bad for the size and parts. What are you using it for?
Looks pretty good. What are your temps like?
I'm using this one.
It has no space for full-height GPUs, but I'm not going to need them so whatever.
I'd show you the guts, but there's really nothing to see right now.
I know, that is the next thing to do.
The 980 doesn't exist anymore, its now a GT530.
check out mah atrocious cable-spaghetti mess of a tower
Hey there you are, I've been waiting to ask about that foam. I just received my foam. What sort of performance are you getting out of your foam? Is it very noticeable?
I'm likely going to do my psu shroud in plasti-dip or foam, haven't decided yet
>le PC master race xDDD 1337 PCgaming is reeaaalll technologies :DDDD

Yesterday's photoshop was better!
Today the pixels are really standing out!
Why the hell do you photoshop your case photo?
Does your employer (Corsair) ban you from posting an unedited photo?
Can someone confirm I'm not doing anything retarded here?
Yeah, maybe do that before the extra 980. SLI'd 980s is far overkill for 1080p. I'm maxing out with one 960, even.
Consider it secondary noise dampening, rather than your primary means. You need to have silent fans and rubber mounting, etc to do the majority of the noise reduction. The foam deals with the remaining hum of fans or coil whine.
That said, it has a pretty noticeable effect and since a kit was only $15 it was totally worth it.
Don't do it. Get another 1080p monitor and an ultrawide for you center monitor. 980 can run it trust me.
I have the EVGA 980 SC ACX 2.0 and it stomps all over triple 1080p gaming
Still deciding if I want an h110 or not, 280mm radiator would look pretty badass
Even if it is shooped to fix discoloration or whatever, it probably performs just fine. He's probably getting better CPU temps at the expense of GPU temps, but GPU's (at least nVidia's, from experience) can operate warmer than CPU's anyway.
Aren't we here for mostly looks anyway? Go back to >>>/b/
To be honest, I'm not impressed with Corsair's build quality on the Hydro series. The tubes tend to crack, and Corsair are turbojews when it comes to warranty fulfillment should something go wrong.
Might I recommend a Swiftech unit?
The H220 is a "upgradeable" AIO.
You can add a GPU fitting if you want at any point.
Made a few changes, hardly a difference in temps though. and my GPU fan died today too. The next 3 months will be toasty.
More Noctua, there's another two on the front rad.

Switch your motherboard to an H97 model rather than a Z97. The "z" refers to support for overclocking, and you have a locked processor picked. Also, you might want two 4gb sticks of RAM instead of 1 8gb so you can take advantage of the dual channel feature.
Other than that, your choices aren't necessarily bad.
different guy here, but i think the better route would be to keep the 212 evo and instead get an intel processor that is unlocked. anything with a K on the end of the name. not much point in an aftermarket cooler if you aint overclocking i think was his point
Well, seems to be low budget right?
First, you should never be to economical with the cpu.
It's more important then all the other parts.
Choose a i7 in the same price range or better put some money more in it and look that it is compatible with the Mb.
The MB as well does not look good.
I personally would take a Asus motherbord.
Take 2 Ram blocks 4gb instead of the single 8gb and look up if the mb supports dual channel.
The 970 is a shitty gpu, is a 980 to expensive?
It's way better but you could also take a 780.
Can't see the pwu, how much watt is it?
I am going to put you in a box and mail you to Dumbfuckistan.
Should I get sleeved cables? Or a new case altogether? Monry ain't really an issue.

well the temps are only affected by a few degrees so that's why I haven't bothered to switch them. I sold the 680 a week ago and I'm going to be selling the 970 and all that is going towards getting either a 980 or the new AMD 3xx cards that are dropping soon.
The guy who edited that pic definitely cares way too much, but the fan arrangement in that build isn't great.
It could be fixed by simply flipping the top fans so they exhausted. The way they're set up now, they're just blowing warm air from the rad back into the case.
Cable management is pretty good, the PCIe power cable looks out of whack though
These days the EVGA G2/P2 series, particularly the 750 G2, are excellent value and quality. There's also Corsair HXi and Seasonic in general.
>even considering selling a 970 to buy a 980
Please don't be an nvidicuck.
Anyone here with a 4790K experiencing high temps? I just upgraded from a 4770K and I'm getting 10 to 20℃ more on idle/surfing the web.
Already tried reseating the heatsink/thermal compound a few times. Updated UEFI and reset it.
>upgrading from a 4770 to a 4790K
God, you're fucking retarded. How's that extra 0.1-0.2 GHz going?
There's probably bad contact between chip package and IHS. Delid and put CLU on the chip package. Then again, you upgraded to a 4790K from a 4770K, so you probably can't be trusted to not fuck that up.
Thanks. Instead of a "SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold" I had to pick "Corsair CSM 650W - Modular 80+ Gold", is that okay? Also the i5 isn't quad core but it has the dual channel you mentioned.
Here's a picture of what it looks like right now.
After: Pic related
Not a problem.
You may be confusing HT (Hyperthreading) with actual cores.
Most i5's are actually quads without HT, whereas i7's are the same but with HT (and the appropriate markup in cost).
Some exceptions are lower denominators that are actually dual-cores with hyper threading, under the marketing illusion of quads.
Get something better. Is Seasonic stuff available in your country? How about EVGA B2 or G2 series? Antec HCG?
All new desktop i5s are quad,, only i3 and below are dual.
I bet it'd fit if you didn't have that fat, pointless backplate on your graphics card. I don't think Phanteks took fat, pointless backplates into consideration when making the cooler.
They put them very close together to breathe? What? You seem mildly to moderately upset. I'm sorry to hear that.
I'll be getting a liquid cooler at some point but for now I'm not having any temp problems at all.
Ahh, okay I assumed he meant breathing room between the CPU and GPU.
Yeah in hindsight the mobo was a poor choice since I'm not running 4 AMD cards or anything, was my first build so whatever.
You're right, but as I said, I'll switch things out once/if I have heat issues. Which currently is far from a problem.
>Is Seasonic stuff available in your country? How about EVGA B2 or G2 series? Antec HCG?
No - No - The only HCG I found is pic related ( http://www.coolmod.com/antec-hcg-850-m-ec-fuente-psu-precio?virtuemart_category_id=1579 )
I am these posts:
>if you don't plan on installing non-free repos anyway, there's literally no difference
>yes clearly this is a fair, apples-to-apples comparison
>Yes, because the current materials used for cases, steel and aluminium, aren't conductive.
The rest of them are somebody else.
They make alright products at alright prices. They are generally aesthetically pleasing. Noctua is best but they are expensive. You get what you pay for. You haven't stated anything that hasn't already been said.
The CSM is quite poor in quality compared to the HCG, but 850W is incredibly overkill. 650W is too, but not as jesus-fuck-do-your-research overkill.
Don't let people tell you gigabyte is bad, their budget stuff is sometimes questionable, but their high-end stuff is among the best without killing your wallet. Z97 krait is fine though.
Muh rice rig half-finished poor student edition
does 1 noctua count?
My first self-build ever.
4790K @ 4.7 Ghz for everyday usage, 1.25 Vcore
He probably has clearance issues if he wanted to stick the rad in the top, especially if he's running fans on both sides. Flipping the fans to exhaust out of the front probably wouldn't work too well either as he'd only have the bottom fan feeding the GPU (the rear fan wouldn't be doing much) and the two front fans would be pulling most of that air away.
Flipping the rear and adding fans in the top is pretty pointless, and combined with opening the expansion slots would result in negative pressure (4 out, 2 in) with lots of dust being sucked in.
It's custom made. I found a guy offering laser cutting service on mica material in my city so I asked him to make one according to how I want it. Total cost including materials: $30.
>look it up
>not for sale in USA because of Jew lawsuits
>mfw I find a 220x on eBay for $120
Thanks anon this may be what I was looking for. The simplicity of the H100i with the upgradability of a custom loop
you're not a true inverted mobo club member. you're an impostor. get out of here, swine.
I think as long as you have the PSU mounted up front like that, a front fan is going to be pointless. The only other place the PSU can be without making the case bigger is over the motherboard, and there are already cases that do that. Of course, that gives up CPU cooler height.
If you want a space-efficient layout that doesn't sacrifice CPU cooling or GPU length, a front-mounted PSU is hard to beat. For the what it's meant to be (small size, good cooling), there's not much that could be improved on the SG07/SG08.
Dig the case, bruh. Though you could have gone with a black noctua.
I like this a lot.
That is pretty cool. Might make my own custom bench later this year.
New PSU with black braided cables is on its way. Decided to step up to the 980. Probably getting another set of that memory and another 500gb Samsung Evo SSD eventually.
>there's not gonna be room for future GPU's
What's that CPU cooler ? Post speccy too please
CM Geminii M4, but with a Corsair fan for the sake of the color scheme.
You should finish it with some kind of transparent plexi-glass cover (with some holes drilled for ventilation). Make it look like a funky stock exchange telegraph.
Two intakes over the radiator, two in the front, one exhaust. Top intakes draw air to cool the CPU, front intakes draw cool air into the case, exhaust.. exhausts. IIRC that anon is going for positive pressure to limit dust build up and didn't have really bad CPU temps so it wasn't a problem. >>47373789 is bait
I'd like the drives to have more cooling though, they get a bit hot especially when the machine is heavily loaded.
I also bought the 180mm fan that's supposed to fit above the motherboard, but it hits the cooler on my graphics card. Bummer.
Almost complete just waiting on a reference 970 to drop in price. Also there's nothing interesting outside of the window and I don't use those speakers.
Not a single source to be seen.
