Build

Fractal and fabulous!

by Gemuesesuppe

Description

I have been into computers as long as I can think of. The first and last computer I built was in 2004 and I was the proudest teenager of all time. I even added SLI later on, but figured that it sucked back then. When being in university I was using laptops with graphic cards and was a dedicated gamer to CS and DOTA. I upgraded last winter to a heavy Gaming Laptop from MSI because I started earning my own money but realized that I am not dependent on a laptop anymore. Especially I hated the noise the laptop emitted, but it was able to run PUBG. So after using it for nearly one year I began checking beautiful builds at pcpartpicker.com and fell in love with these new, clean and high performance machines. Next I sold the laptop and spend four weeks grabbing hardware for reasonable prices and finished my computer on November the 7th. The Mainboard is the MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, but it is not listed in the part list. Hope you guys like it, it was inspired by you all.

Cheers, Maximilian

PS: I'll add some daylight photos of the case, inner parts and with the site open as soon as I am getting out of work before sunset. Overclocking results of CPU and GPU will be added too.

umm i think you listed the wrong mobo... you probably didn't use a mini ITX board. Nice build though! +1

Thanks for the reply, yes I did state it in the description. Poorly the MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC is not listed. Ill change it to the ATX Board MSI B450 Tomahawak. Cheers!

Is it possible to use all your Ram slots, or does the AIO cooler get in the way?

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I didnt try it out but with the eye I see enough space left. Even for the TridentZ.

I bring good news, pcpartpicker has finally added the b450 gaming pro carbon ac! we can now all add it to our partlists.

Can you see the Corsair LL fans through the front of the case? I can't really tell in the pictures.

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Barely because the radiator is blocking the view. Anyway I wanted to not see fans from the front, because the front is beautiful on itself.

Hey, I was just curious how the case is doing with that fan setup (looks like 3x exhaust...?) in terms of dust?

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Thats true, I was "worried" at the beginning but until now I there is no dust problem. I think negative or positive pressure is a little overrated, but time will show.

How are you digging that Meshify C?

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

It's perfect and suprisingly small. I had to check for GPU length with the radiator in front but it worked out great.

good to know the gpu i picked will fit with a kraken installed, thanks

Hey, did you manage to get the ram clocked to 3200 MHz or nearabouts? I'm planning to get the same G.Skill Trident Z RGB RAM and B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC mobo. Thanks :)

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Yes, the RAM wasn't listed to be supported by the mainboard but it was. Just one neat click on XMP Profile 2 in BIOS and tadaa 3200 MHz

sharktopus 1 point 1 month ago

Are you running 3 intake fans and 3 exhaust? I'm going to be getting the same case soon as well as the Kraken X62 so I'm trying to figure out my fan set-up ahead of time. Thanks!

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

No, right now it is negative pressure with 2 140mm in and 3 120mm out.

Takylo 1 point 26 days ago

if you wanted to could you have installed the Kraken Liquid cooler in the top area instead of the front of the case?

Gemuesesuppe submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 days ago

It is a difficult question because it matters which motherboard you use (RAM slots start at different heights) and which RAM module you are using. The TridentZ is really tall and with a 280 mm RAD you will have trouble.
