Description

I owned this NZXT Vulcan case many years ago, but I gave the build to my in-laws.

Over the years the case has been abandoned, flooded, rusted, lived in by spiders etc.

I always loved this case, so I salvaged and rescued it. Cleaned it, sanded away all the rust and repainted with anti-corrosion gray paint.

Used my spare pc parts to make a backup pc build out of it. Really happy how it turned out.

god i wish cases today had ventilation like that on the side panel so badly. You did a great job with the build well done!

EDIT: nice touch with the cpu cooler fan swap and using that for an exhaust fan. interesting method of making the fan on the cpu cooler exhausting air out the side but i get it.

Yes I really wanted to make use of the side panel feature. There are 2 140mm fans on the CPU doing push-pull and directing air for the exhaust.

So far I've been running this build at stock. But this CPU (Ryzen 1700) however was overclocked before I transferred it. Highest valid overclock for this CPU was 4.1ghz and 3333 ram. And 4.0 and 3200 ram for stress and benchmark testing. What's really great about this CPU is that if I downclock just a little bit to 3.8ghz, it only needs 1.22v. So for this build using the B350 Motherboard, the 3.8 overclock 1.22v will probably work best. Cooling will not be a problem with the 140mm Noctua cooler.
