Description

Stable with prime95 for 1 hour - AIDA64 1 hour

I use this machine mostly for gaming (cs:go, dota 2, diablo 3 RoS, sc2, WoW) and communication (skype).

Someone asked how I applied the TUNIQ TX-4 thermal grease. It is much more fluid and very easy to spread when you heat it with a hair dryer or you let it sit on a lamp for 5 mins.

I gave roccat isku fx 3 stars because the rubber domes feel so soft, and I have been used to typing on keyboards that needs a bit of a pressure on it. But!, this is merely a personal preference as some of you might like soft keys. It is much more quiet though than the keyboard on my other rig.

The reason why I bought it, is because of it's customizable lights and the thumb keys (I use the thumb keys a lot when gaming, especially on WoW)

4 stars for the H80i because the stock fans are too noisy @ 100%. But it is quiet at 50%.

These are the sleeves that I bought:

lots of color choices

Looks nice, how was working with that case?

Seems like you need a proper desk next ! lol

nin9liv9s submitter 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

I was only using the samsung ssd so I had to remove the storage bays and the metal bar in the middle, made things easier working with the case. Using an external for the extra storage.

lol I purposely used that table because my room is too small, as you can see from the picture.

Damn, you might want to be careful with load temps upwards of 80c, but nice build +1

nin9liv9s submitter 1 Build 2 points 28 months ago

Thanks! Yeah I am off the safe limit there. Those are from prime 95 temps. Normally when i'm gaming it's just around 60 more or less. It would be lesser if I put the Corsair h80i fans to 100%, but damn these fans are noisy as hell, like it's about to take off!

IN3RT1A 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

Lol yep I had to replace the fans on my h100i, they were ridiculous. Went with quiet edition sp120s. Nothing i do requires extra juice from my 4770k so no OCing yet for me yet.

Look at dat cable management!

EngageTheSun 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

Wow, how long it took you to fit all those cables? Love the build! +1

Thanks! I'm using the silverstone pp05 set, and it took about a day to sleeve them (24 pin, 8 pin, 2x 6+2 pin pcie (removed the 2 extra wires), sata 180°, and 1 4 pin connector).

I'll be putting up photos of the sleeved cables after work.

This is what I like to see :) Only thing I would suggest is getting a 2-pack of Corsair SP120 PWM QUIET edition fans for your radiator (red color rings! and silence!). I will have my new ITX build posted soon. Hopefully, going to snap some pictures tonight and get it up.

EDIT: Also, how did the sleeving go using paracord? I've been considering that, but I felt like it would be sort of loose on the cabling. No?

nin9liv9s submitter 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

AH Yes I have been planning to get a couple of sp120s (the red ones).

Well, sleeving with the paracord took me about 24 hours for the pp05 cable (24 pin, 8 pin, 2x 6+2 pin pcie (removed the 2 extra wires), sata 180°, and 1 4 pin connector). I'm using the lamptron modding toolkit.

I didn't have any problems with using paracord. Just stretch it out when you measure it with the wire so it'd be TIGHTASTIC!, and make sure to put a bit of allowance because you're gonna be burning the ends of the sleeve.

This is how I did it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFUDqEvhmho

Oh btw am I allowed to put up links here? I'll put up pictures on the sleeved cables.

The SP120s come with all 3 color rings (red, white, and blue), FYI.

I would personally get some Noctua NF-A12s to replace the stock H80i fans. They will probably knock off a few degrees while staying much quieter.

nin9liv9s submitter 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

The performance on the Noctua fans are outstanding. I just don't like the colors though :/ wish they had more options for fan colors.

skemble 24 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

I feel you on the looks... I just got a pair of NF-A14s for a Kraken X60, but luckily the Switch 810 has a great hiding spot for them. If they came out with an all black or all white like the Bitfenix Spectre Pros they would sell out the world.

that load temp seems HIGH for liquid cool
