Description

This is a pretty simple build and my first experience with iTX. I went with optimal airflow by adding 4 fans, 2 intake and 2 exhaust. I tired and AIO one and wasn't really a fan so I went with a low profile cooler just in case I decide to even switch to a smaller case in the future.

The only problem I encountered with this case is screwing the top left motherboard screw. I still actually haven't and the motherboard only has 3 screws holding it in place. :\ I also have cable sleeve expansions but I saw no point in using them since it became more of an annoyance to tuck away even more cable.

I expected the GPU to run a lot hotter than 75 but after stress testing for about 40 mins with FurMark, it doesn't seem to go past 75, it usually will idle between 73 and 75. I do have all 4 case fans cranked up to max so that may aid with the cooling as well. CPU fans are on stock.

That's gonna make some noise.

I figured I may down the line but not right now. Definitely love the case. Only major downside is you can only use GPU that are dual. The bigger GPUs won't fit the case.

maybe you can customize a AIO to make the tubes go to a gpu waterblock.

I have the same case, what are the temperatures of your gpu in gaming ? (clock/fan speed) At what speed do you run your case fans? (RMP) I have only 2 stock fans and I'm thinking about adding extra 2 (140 x 2 possibly) and I wonder what difference could it make for temps

I'll run a few test when gaming this weekend. I played a half hour of MHW and it got to 73, didn't go past that. In terms of RMP, they run at 1440. It's noisy but not super noisy to where it bothers me. I play with headphones on anyways so it's not an issue.

Bottleneck?

from what ive heard this combination creates about a 20% bottleneck

nice build, I have the same case in and was looking at the same 2080ti as no many cards fit the case, how is it for temps and fan noise?
