Description

My main computer used for mining, gaming, photo/video-editing etc Everything fits perfectly even though Meshify C is a small case so it is a tight fit.

Pictures of the backside added as well upon request. I have not done my best to tidy up all the cables in the back since it is all covered by the non-transparent backside plate.

Love the look of this build, AMAZING. But is the Noctua air-cooler able to cool that beast?

The Noctua cooler got a big base to fit the Threadripper cpu better so it works very well. Added some temperature stats to my details page. I have replaced the Noctua fan with a Corsair LL fan though. At idle with the fans running at around 650rpm the CPU stays around 34 Celcius degrees (93 Fahrenheit). At Load with the fans running at 1200rpm the CPU stays around 65 Celcius degrees (150 Fahrenheit)

Well I guess Noctua does make some pretty good cooling gear...

Question: I'm planning a build with the same exact air cooler with both a Asus Strix 1080Ti and a 64 Vega.....can you use the first PCIe slot with this cooler or is that simply not possible?

2 different dedicated GPUs in the same PC isn’t possible o

You can use a AMD gfx card and a nvidia gfx card in the same pc, all depends on what you use your cards for.

I have not tested to put my gfx card in the top pci express slot but i dont think it will fit unfortunatly, not even with my 1070 with no top cover on gfx card.

Nice build +1

I haven’t looked into any x399 threadripper builds or platforms but i am curious why you went with the taichi if you needed the gigabit lan port ? My guess would be that the taichi has better vrm cooling or a better performance/quality phase/mosfets than other boards. Im a little surprized the taichi didnt come with a gigabit lan port included with that price tag. $375 taichi + $100 gigabit port... what was the reasoning behind choosing the asrock taichi vs another board with the gigabit port included for $375-$475?

There are a couple of reasons i got the the Asrock Taichi motherboard instead of Asus motherboard for example.

  1. I did not want any fans on the motherboard.

  2. Since a 10gigabit NIC gets very hot i did not want that interfering with the temps on the motherboard.

  3. I was not sure how good the 10gigabit Aquantia chip (used on most MB and on my stand alone NIC) was going to be. It works fine though so that is not a problem, so i will not have to get a intel 10gigabit NIC.

  4. I like the design of the Asrock Taichi rather than the Fatal1ty!

Hello there,

I’m making a build pretty much the same as yours. I’m so in love at how everything fits so well together. The only difference will be the gpu. I have few questions and I really hope you respond.

I’m getting an error on this site saying that the power supply won’t fit in the case and I’m getting the exact case and power supply you have, is there any truth to that statement?

Are you having any issues with this setup after using it for over half a year?

If there’s anything you’d change in this build now, what would it be?

I really hope to hear from you. I’m really nervous/scared on how it will turn out.

Thank you for this build it’s stunning.

There is no issue with the power supply and case as far as i noticed when building it. I don't use any hard drives in the cages in the bottom though, it might be difficult to route all the cables there.

So far so good after using it all the time since i built it! I have removed the dust filter in the front to make the RGB fans show more so i had to do some dust cleaning, but i expected that. That is all the maintenace i have done.

I wouldnt change anything, possibly i might upgrade the gfx card and add more m2 drives later.

How loud are the fans?

  • 11 months ago

Not very loud, currently i have it configured so that some of the fans stop completely in idle using Corsair's iCUE software.

Would the cooelr be enough for the 2600x @ 4.1 GHz?

The Noctua CPU NH-U14S is rated to be able to handle 180 W as far as i know, probably more if you add a second fan and have a good ventilated case.

Did you have any problems when switching out the fans on the CPU cooler? Arent the 'arms' meant for 120mm fans?

  • 10 months ago
  • 2 points

The Noctua NH-U14S cooler has a 140mm fan by default but that fan is optimized to fit the CPU cooler without blocking any RAM slots or extend the cooler higher. There was no problem replacing the default fan with a Corsair LL 140mm but it does block some RAM slots. The case is wide enough to manage the extra height of the CPU cooler.

I really wanna know this as well. And what did you use to plug all those fans too?

  • 10 months ago
  • 1 point

See answer above. I use Corsair iCue software to controll and monitor everything and all my fans are connected to a Corsair Commander Pro.

Did you put the Commander behind the motherboard or in the basement? is there space enough to mount it aswell as some ssds in the back?

would you mind sharing a picture of your backside? Im looking to maybe swap case and i use a commander aswell, so im curious! extremely nice build btw

I got it behind the motherboard as you can see in the additional pictures i just uploaded :)

that is a beautiful build. i loved it !

i have two questions. 1-through which hardware you are controlling the fan speeds? 2- how is the CPU fan "corsair" temps compared to noctua fan? are they 120mm or 140mm ?

dang dude. I spent a weekend looking at different cases and thought I had finally settled on something, but wanted to see if someone else had done it before. I literally searched for "fractal design meshify c with 2 140mm rgb front fans" and your build was the 4th image to pull up, and it was exactly what I was picturing.

Once I've saved up the money I'll be doing your exact case and fan setup just about. Thank you for the inspiration!
