Description

A gamers dream, this meticulously put together custom workhorse of a PC comes to life. Phanteks really stepped it up with this builder friendly and stunning case. Words cannot explain how gorgeous this looks with the RGB options included with the case and paired up with an ASUS Aura MB and green cable extensions really make it POP.

Building custom PC's is a passion of mine and I'm glad I got to share this with you all.

I use the PC mainly for photo and video editing. On my off time, I do some gaming but it's strictly meant for business...lol. The added cores is a plus when rendering large files and the 64gb of Ram...well...why not! I originally had a 1080Ti FE on this build but decided to put it in another build that I ended up selling.

The NVMe SSD is ridiculously fast, never going back to a traditional SSD. Paired up with a 3TB Baracuda for Data Storage there's no going back.

I love this machine...enjoy!

Hey tyreshredder,

Thanks for the comment. I've built PC's using a variety of cases and after finishing this one, I wanna say this case is perfect. Cable management is a breeze with the built-in cable straps and the hidden PSU and HDD compartments only make it that much easier. I highly recommend this case for your build... you get SO much more for your money.

Great looking build. I love the floppy disks on the wall too. I might have to steal that idea.

Tfinkbeiner,

Thanks for your comment. I was cleaning my garage and found a few boxes of them. At the time I was building my desk and figured... hey why not use them as a backsplash. The end result was rather nice.

Why X99 instead of Ryzen, considering it's mainly a workstation PC? Overall, it looks fantastic! I like the green cables, it really looks well with the silver/black case.

Hey Dizzlepop12,

That is a GREAT question. I was looking to build around the Ryzen 7 1800X platform but the majority of these components were secured at a great discount, otherwise, I'd be all for it. I agree that Green/Black/White really complement each other!

I can honestly say I am glad you shared this with us. The green accents are choice! NVMe here too. Even though mine is not running at max capabilities due to it being on an AM#+ board it still is ridiculously fast. Can't imagine it being faster.

Hey oneflygtiguy,

Thanks. There was a recent update which affected the performance. If you have a Samsung NVMe you should look into it.

Was it a firmware update through Samsung Magician? If so I did that. Didn't notice much of a speed difference. Suppose I can re check that though.

Hey, nice build! I'm wanting to build in this case and was wondering, can the rad fit up top or is having it in the front not going to be much of a temp change? +1 :)

Hey Moorest, Thanks. The rad will not fit on top due to mother's clearance. Having it up front hasn't affected temps and has a rather good airflow. Hope I was somewhat helpful.

Nice build but I have one question. Where did you put your HDD? Wouldn't it be blocked the radiator?

  • 30 months ago

Hey there. Thanks. HDDs are accessible through the back panel. Very simple slide in trays.

how good are the arctic f12 pmw? i´m looking for that fans but i don´t really know how good are.

  • 30 months ago

IMO, they're balanced fans between static pressure and airflow. The latest Rev. 2 fans do deliver around 70+CFM but I wouldn't use them on thick radiators as you need dedicated static pressure fans to push air through those. As always, if you have dust filters before these fans as intake, I recommend fine intake mesh or they'll be choked for air.

Is it normal if my top covers are a bit yellow-ish, instead of the same lucid white that the entire case has?

Hey, nice build, it's sick bro. I have question regarding the memory you chose. Did you have any problems with getting your 4 sticks read fully? I recently upgraded my RAM from 16gb 2x8 to 64gb 4x16 but only 2 sticks are being read. I have the same motherboard so that's why I am asking.
