Description

My 1st build.

I wanted to have a black / white / green color way and reuse the i5 4670k from my old system, so obvious choices were MSI Z97s Krait and the MSI GTX 970 100ME. I liked to stick to Corsair so RAM and PSU were easy picks too.

Since the Corsair 100R provides little airflow i choose two 140mm Noctua Redux as front intakes, planning on redirecting the air straight to the GPU to keep it as cool as possible. Nanoxia FX Evo are great fans and fit the color scheme so i went for those to do so, which included attaching one onto the harddrive tray via zip-tie-ghetto-mod. The PSU's fan isn't the best quality, so i put a Nanoxia FX Evo 120mm 1000 RPM IFC in there.

I painted the CPU coolers color ring, spent a fair share of time on the cable management and the result does match my vision for the build, is dead silent in idle and pretty cool under load with the CPU overclocked @ 4.3 GHz.
I'm very happy with the Coconut Lime.

Where are the cables? What kind of computer is this?!

Neatest PC I've ever seen. I also love the consistency with the colour scheme. If I had a medal to give, you'd probably receive it.

How are you liking the fans you have?

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

A lot! FX Evos could still be more silent, but since they are PWM controlled and i always got wether speakers or headphones playing when under load, it's all good! ^

How dod you paint the cooler rings?

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 29 months ago

I got myself some cans from a graffiti store. White for priming and green for final color.

Brilliant cable management and parts selection :) I will be very happy if you take a picture from the other side of the case please. Because I have same case and amazing looking but really hard to close it once all the cables put together :)

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 2 points 29 months ago

True! That's why i hope you'll understand that i don't want to open the case again unless it's necessary! ;)

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 28 months ago

Great! Haven't felt any issues with the vram yet…then again, i'm only playing at 1080p.

leongill 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

Do you have your cables hidden in the drive bays?

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 27 months ago

I got 'em hidden everywhere! ; )

leongill 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Mines was a nightmare trying to find places t put them.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 27 months ago

Yeah, the 100R provides very little room for cable mgmt, but where's a will there's a way, i guess… ; )

leongill 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Yeah time,effort and 60Kg on top of it got mine closed.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 27 months ago

Zip-Tie-Ghetto-Mod.

norosesnoskiesx 1 point 23 months ago

which makes the HDD cage non-removalable right? I've been looking high and low for the answer to this.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 2 points 23 months ago

Yes, the hdd cage is not supposed removed.

Are we talking Corsair 100R?

Answers:

  • You propably can route fan- and front-panel-cables behind your MoBo.
  • No, it's not, if you don't squeeze them in too hard.
  • Use zip ties to fix them behind the back.
