I made a custom aio cooler for the card using some acrylic and two 80mm fans. The card with heatshink will fit in the s4 classic but won’t fit when the shroud is on

great build i love both those cases. Do you notice a sound difference switching to the R6?

its not as thick as the dell but it is much wider. overall it is bigger. good luck finding a voodoo they are near impossible to acquire.

sorry i no longer have this build together. I would say you need to stick to the ddc pump with the 100-110 reservoir. Maybe something bigger may fit but i cannot confirm

i absolutely love it. there really is not other way to take this much power wherever you go and it looks great because it doesn't eat desk space. i built a rendering monster so i moved this over to my 4k 55" tv

You really are clueless mate. Who said I game at 1080p? i was just benchmarking on my portable monitor which i travel. I have a 1440p ultrawide monitor. Yes the 7700k was the best cpu i could put in it based on my limitation for power draw and cooling. Anything bigger i would have difficulty cooling. I get the full boost at 4.5ghz and have zero cooling issues. Prime95 which is a unrealistic scenario test on a cpu hit 85C. I get around 60-70C on gaming. The idea of the build was the make the smallest rig that will destroy most other builds but that concept seems to have missed you. You also probably didn't know that this z board was the only board that could run two m.2 in raid 0. Asus has now released a b board but at the time it was not around. You sir obviously didn't do your "research" and no you couldn't get a build like mine with half the money. time for you to get edumacated. i hope you see what i did there

I don't believe it is am4 compatible you would have to check on id cooling site. The cooler is alright I picked it only cause I hated to cooler of the noctua cooler

how are the honey comb radiators? They had pretty poor cooling performance on the reviews but they look so cool.

DocH's Completed Build: NFC S4 MINI Rare Bread 4.3L

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

the 1080 is more than enough power. Also you could run into some power spike issues with the DC-DC power supplies and that setup. It will take some testing and i just did this build so no reason to get a 1080 ti.

DocH's Completed Build: NFC S4 MINI Rare Bread 4.3L

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 20 months ago

true but you can't run raid 0 with a single drive. So i use two m.2 to reach a faster write and read speed by raiding them,

actually i have it running at a full 4.5 turbo under prime95 at 84C. It is delidded of course. So while the 7700 has a lower tdp rating it does not hit the 4.5hz mark.

This build was done before there was even a 10 series out. At the time 980 Ti was the best and still are fantastic cards. I just uploaded it now so everyone can check it out and hopefully give some people ideas for builds.

sorry for the delay. I is just sitting at the bottom of the case not mounted. I didn't want to drill holes in the beautiful case. Plus i don't move my pc to much so there is not issues. Even then it is a tight fit in front of the gpu and how i ran my pipes i hardly budges

30db while playing games so not to bad at all. This is after the delid and everything

i would recommend changing your fluid as it looks old and has separated in the reservoir. Could potentially clog your pump and break it or get stuck in blocks and cause overheating.

DocH's Completed Build: Old Glory - Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TP

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Sorry for the delayed response. I would recommend against a 250 reservoir. It doesn't look good in my mind and is way to big for this particular case. It can be done if you don't do a pump res combo but there really isn't a lot of room for it. You would have to mount the pump separately solo under the gpu and the reservior on the radiator. The sweet spot for this case really is 150mm reserviors. If you do the pump bracket there is no way to do a 250mm with pump reservior combo.

I would be lying if i didn't get some inspiration from cars. You can never go wrong with black and chrome it is classy.

DocH's Completed Build: Old Glory - Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TP

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I drilled holes in the case to mount the pump on the back wall and low as possible. I would recommend getting a pump mount to mount to the front rad. You will achieve a similar look without the drilling. There was no modding to the case otherwise. You can also do a aluminum plate mod to get a bigger rad on top without adjusting the case but that does take some skill but would be more than happy to share.

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

Thanks! yeah i wanted a clean look and decided black and chrome does just that. There is white and grey of course but it all blends in for a nice look. I am really happy about the build. The black liquid really adds that touch and i wanted to show the before and after.

DocH's Completed Build: Old Glory - Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TP

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

I thought that too, but i have two 140mm pushing in. There are furious F4 and are beastly. Also there is major air restriction on top of the case so really the dust hasn't been as bad as i had anticipated. But i thought the same thing as well going into it.

DocH's Completed Build: Old Glory - Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TP

DocH submitter 4 Builds 1 point 21 months ago

It was definitely worth it. If you can go some time without the pc while you are doing the build i highly recommend it. Yeah it is pricey and you wont see much if any performance over an AIO but is it worth it. I finally did the jump when i thought i can reuse all the materials for all my future builds. Don't let bending tubes scare you. You will waste some tubing but it isn't difficult just time consuming. Everyone has to start somewhere. I really don't know about the SSD as i mostly just game so SSD speeds don't play a large role between each other. EK just came out with an all aluminum kit that is very reasonably priced. There is no feeling once you done and you see the piece of art you made. Just make sure you do your research before starting.

I didn't have much issues. I followed a video EVGA made for the board and the intel 6700k. Not sure if it is around but you may be able to find it. I set it to 4.5 and didn't think twice about it. It is possible you just got a lemon chip maybe. I feel that it is low though and shouldn't be having those issues.

Definitely saw it had some clean runs. I am just OCD so i wanted everything to be perfect which is why i got the kits. There were a two bends i couldn't use the kit for but all in all i recommend it.

i left it at 3200hz. I am sure i could have pushed it faster but i just wanted to declare a war on heat everywhere.

DocH submitter 4 Builds 2 points 21 months ago

Thanks for the tip. What I did since I had the bending kit is I marked both sides of a piece of wood with lengths in a 90° angle. Once I measured it in the case I then used that measurement on the marked board to bend in the exact spots I wanted. For the most part I never had to do a bend twice except for one pesky run. I'll try your suggestion in the future.

DocH 4 Builds 1 point 22 months ago

no problem. I did the same thing with my build. There are two ways to do it one involves modding the actual case and drilling holes. The other is easier and doesn't. if you interested let me know and i can explain it better.

DocH 4 Builds 1 point 22 months ago

great build i did something similar. Only downside is i feel your top radiator takes up so much real estate when looking at it. Otherwise clean and well done. if you remove the radiator mount on top and take two long pieces of aluminum you can pull that top radiator up higher out of the way. it a common mod everyone does for this case.

If you CPU doesn't go over 60C you do not need a delid. My cpu was hitting 100C on prime95. I switch the cooler out and did the delid. It tops at 84C under full load on prime 95 after ten minutes. So the delid helped me quite a lot. But i would not recommend it unless you absolutely needed it,.

As requested. Still have to make more adjustments. I did the run with only a 50% fan on the gpu. I can make some changes and most likely get a higher scores but it will do for now.

The trick was to loosen the top two pins on the case a little. It allows for a little gap at the top but also allows an unmodded GTX 1080 mini to fit. It is dang snug. I mean I am pushing it to the max.

Zotac is a really weird company. They make some of the largest 2.5 slot normal size cards, and then some of the small itx cards. Their itx cards are a little on the large side but they are the only one that make a gtx 1080 mini.

yeah that is my next adventure. If you got the machinery Josh releases the schematics to the pc case so technically you can build one yourself. Just gotta go to his site and download the files.

yeah it wasn't a bad build and they had josh do a custom cut out to the case for the corsair torque ram. Man is that ram sweet.

Cryorig C7 cpu cooler is to large for the case. The recommended size for a cpu cooler height with this case is 40mm but can be stretched a little. Currently the LP53 is the best.

You better hurry!!!! Josh has his preorders up on the NFC site for September. This will be last case run for this year. The case has been getting a lot of attention since Linus did a build as well.
