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?

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

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

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?

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.

Any issues not plugging in the extra 4 pin EPS cable? thinking about getting the same mobo with a PSU that only comes with one 8 pin EPS, just checking theres no issues with POSTing or anything like that

How are you digging that Meshify C?

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

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 :)

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

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!

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

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

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.

How did overclocking go? Curious how the 2600 + B450 carbon combo worked for you in the end.

Would you happen to know if a top mount is possible with the X62 ie. clearance issues? I have the same case and motherboard and am hoping to top mount a 120mm AIO in the event I need the space for a GPU.

Thanks! The build and craftsmanship, look etc. is excellent; I will be doing a 3700x 8/16 with the same general idea.

Do you still need an answer? Saw the question just now. :/

Would these components work with this mother board: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/w9DGf9.

Yes but why would you buy a 2200G with this board? Better go for a Ryzen 5 2600 and a RX 580 GPU.
