My Rig in my Dark Room..
Here are few pictures of re-finished loop,added EVGA GTX1080Ti and extra 120mm 30mm thick radiator to loop
Hope this helps
Very nice ^^
The only thing I can think that could improve the look, but I imagine would be fairly difficult but worth it IMO, would be getting those GPU cables perfectly straight, they draw the eyes to them straight away, and the 24 pin looks slightly twisted too
Not that I can talk with my dusty-ass machine
Thank you for your kind comment
I've got these combs and have few other individually sleeved cables for GPU with combs but with 3 GPU plus 240mm radiator and push pull fans is very hard to get cables there, trust me tried and failed miserable on this front
Previously have used Shakmods but they're bit thick and hard to pass them through the grommets if you are running more GPU, if you are running 1-2 its OK and for 24 pin is pain in arse there pass through
lol yea I thought it would be difficult, amazing build all the same though
Figured I'd post some pics of my rig too, now with a 1080 Ti in it. As you can see, I'm all over the white/black/red theme. The interior of the case is an ancient CM Storm Trooper, but with CM Storm Stryker panels on the outside which I bought last year. I really like the oldschool-SW style of it. :nerd:
Cables could be a bit better, but then again there's only so much I can do, considering the number of HDDs/SSDs that I have, not to mention how super tight fit the H115i was.
I have owned in past same case but CM Storm Trooper in black, has been nice case but I give it to my friend because has been too small or smaller for my needs, that time have run Z97 with i7-4790k
In Enthoo Primo I've 7* 3.5" HDD, 3*SSD and its pain to have nice cable management in back of the case plus running 3 GPU etc
Did you tried route cables behind the motherboard or through the grommets and turn the HDD cages as I know you can turn the HDD cages and these cables will be not very visible
I'm pretty sure I've still old pictures of my previous build and how is been done, but mainly due this I went with Enthoo Primo as this case is big and routing cables and wires is easier and plus have better airflow
Black and red scheme this I've previously in my Enthoo Primo as well but my current extensions are very thick cables and route them in case is simply not possible
But still looks good there and what is counts you are happy
Just wish Enthoo Elite is cheaper :nerd:
Hope this helps
Yeah that is it's only downfall, despite the fact that the case itself is pretty BIG, on the inside it's rather limited. Especially since my current mobo is e-ATX it covers more than half of the grommets so it's VERY tight. It's the same reason why I reversed the optical drives cage, because I couldn't reroute the cables back there.
I'm pretty sure I will keep this setup for at least 1-2 more years, and might keep it as secondary rig after. My next case will definitely have to be more up to date, dimensions wise.
I forgot about you have e-ATX board and that case really is not the best for these boards, but still looks good there
I have used in this case E-ATX board as well Asus X58 and I remember have few issues there
If you will be going with new case, get Phanteks case, I can only recommend these cases there
My friend which have my case, he is very happy, we are modified his case a bit but still is very happy with the case
Me personally I'm looking at new case as well, just wish over here in EU I could get Caselabs case
Hope this helps
Hello, a lot of time since my last time here..
This has been my older air cooler setup which has been awesome
After a few years without posting my config, I come back with my last baby.
The last time I came to show my job was:
Since I had several editing always in amd:
then Fx 8350, 8GGo corsair
R9 290X, asus raidr express
Then change of body (Thermaltake urban T81) and modification of the watercooling:
And for some weeks:
Amd ryzen R7 1700X, asus crosshair VI hero
16 GB GSkill ripjaws 4, samsung 960 evo, and still the R9 290X while waiting for vega
Several albums to avoid the abuse of photos here:
My 1st watercooling in rigid monsoon, rads 360 EK PE after cg and rad xspc 240 after proc, pump aquacomputer aquastream ultimate (excellent), inside of the box (modified at the passage of the cables) covered with carbon.
Some photos of the preparation and editing,
Prepa: (the rad from the top has been changed compared to the photos because too thick (phobya360 G-Changer V2) and I wanted to replace the hood without the massacre)
And while waiting that it is mounted I tested a little the gear and installed the old config in air to the air:
And once finished, it gives ...
ps: I can not change the description of my configuration :s
So heres a small update on my new parts. Original build is at the top of this page.
Stupid noob... here is how you build a PC!
(Don't worry new mods, i am quoting myself!)
(that is not the same freezer extreme, it is a new one, but i loved it so much, best price/performance ratio for a cooler)
I see killer rigs here (solfaur) ... wow you have come a long way, and that red and white theme on intel+nvidia... makes AMD fans cry
But really, i just need 1080p at 60 fps locked. These specs do the job, actually forcing games at 1080p@60fps saves heat because CPU+GPU are not 100% load. It is enough for me!
Custom water cooling update with a waterblock for my Palit GTX1080 JetStream
Excuse the filters
GPU sag pencil mod PSU cover for my 750D airflow edition case from ColdZero
You know the best part is the Snoopy + Charlie
well as my darth vader is too tall to fit i had to steal that off my daughter
It is cute.
My New Ryzen Buid
Hi, time without posting.
I recently update my 2600k to Ryzen 1700. Here are some pictures
