Yep, only comes with Red LED fans. No LED strips, unless you count the ones attached to the fans. I'm not entirely sure if you can take the LED strips off the fans, but you can definitely remove the one fan on the back in it's entirety with just a few simple screws. The ones on the front are the exact same, however the screws are on the side with the dust filter. It looks like there's a way to take the dust filter off in the inner part of the case, but I didn't want to mess with it. But I'm sure you can get in that way.
Hope it helps :)
The male molex connector built into the case will connect to a corresponding female molex connector on the wire attatched to the PSU. If the PSU is not modular, it will have a female molex connector on it. I've never dealt with a fully modular PSU, so I cannot confirm whether or not it would have one.
I can confirm that the Wraith Stealth cooler will fit. It is currently being used in my PC to this day. I'm assuming that you're talking the ram clearance in regards to my mobo.
Cannot Confirm that the Wraith Spire will fit though, but it does seem relatively the same time.
Apologies for the late response, I haven't messed around too much with my overclocking settings because the things I do aren't too demanding.
At first my ram was reading as a lower mhz rate so I manually bumped it up to 3200 till I resolved it.
I run my CPU most of the time on turbo @ 3.8ghz, so I'd say it handles it pretty well. I tried running it at 4.0ghz and it was handling that just fine as well. However I only ran it for about a half an hour because I use the stock cooler and was worried about the increasing temps.
As for the GPU I've used it in the OC preset on the MSi Gaming App, but aside from that I haven't messed with it too much manually.
Personally I love this case, when I first saw it I knew this was going to be a staple in my build. So I may be a bit biased towards it. My first PC was built w/ a Rosewill Galaxy 02 Case and I actually like this one much better. The SAMA Maxcool has a ton of room under the PSU shroud for Cable management, tons of room since it's a Mid-Size tower for mATX cases (It will not fit regular ATX MOBOs). It has tool-less drive mounts under the PSU shroud, so your HDD will be easy to install. The SSD will fit there as well, but also has a spot towards the front near the case fans for mounting directly onto the case, but I prefer the mounts.
The only issue I can see with this case is the acrylic side panel, if you're not careful when you're taking it off and putting it down it's possible to leave a scratch mark on it. I don't notice it but I did get one towards the corner of my side panel. And it might not be as premium as a tempered glass panel, but it's great for a budget imo.
Also since this is your first build do you plan on using ethernet? Because I peeped you build and saw you didn't have a WiFi card included with it. And do you plan on overclocking your CPU?
I think that's the best solution for that problem :P
Since I was not going for a WiFi card I just decided to use my Xbox One S controller wired to save on batteries and such until I could get both the USB adapter and a charging station.
Also I peeped your saved parts list real quick and was just curious, What do you plan on using your future build for?
Yep! In the first picture you can see the little fan controller next to the SD/TF slot. It has 3 settings in order from top to bottom of the slider:
Top━High + Bright LED
Bot ━Normal speed + slightly dimmed LED
I'm 90% sure that there's 1 or 2 extra connectors just in case an a top exhaust fan is desired (I'll open it up and double check if you want 100% confirmation on that)
And thank you :D
Sadly it does not come with either of these (Had to double check in the Device Manager to be 100% sure of the Bluetooth part xD)
I plan on buying a Blu-tooth adapter in the near future to tackle that problem though. However I never really accounted for Wi-Fi because I planned on using an Ethernet cable from the start. The GPU covers one of the PCIe 1x slots, and leaves little room for the second slot. It looks like a Wi-Fi card would fit, but it would be very close to the GPU fan. But I've read that this isn't a huge issue, might impact cooling slightly apparently. And thank you :D
Possibly, but it definitely wasn't for a dedicated mining rig if anything. The seller said he only used it for light VR and never overclocked it. The reason he said he was giving it up is because he was going for a mini PC build. Regardless of whether it's true or not I'm happy with the performance of it, and thanks :D
I didn't even think of an extension cable, that's a great idea xD
I'll keep that in mind for the future though because I really like this idea.
Again, great build and thank you for responding :)
Thank you! :D
Thank you! :)
Used 1070s are generally within that price range at this time. I'd suggest reading the sellers description of the item and getting in contact with them before purchasing though. Also skim through their reviews to ensure they're legit.
You can find more here :)
I love the fact that the PC is on the other side of the wall, makes the minimalist look fit even better :P
Is pulling the headphones through the wall a bit of a hassle when bringing them to use somewhere else though? Never ran wires through the wall so I'm just curious.
How much did this go for on Facebook?
