What kind of GPU temps do you get at idle/load?
Its good but the H7 is much larger and I don't really think they are comparable. The H7 is about 8-10 degrees cooler under full load
Not sure what 2 builds you're referring to cause I have 5 builds. All of the recorded temps I put down are correct for those components listed. Also don't know what cooler you're referring to
Thanks! Haha it's actually just an old desk that comes with the apartment (I live on campus at a university). You could probably find something similar for free or very cheap on craigslist if you live in a populated area
Classic Shell can change a lot of different appearances on windows. I cleaned up the start menu as well using it. Check out TaeKeyboards on YouTube, should help you get a good idea of building keyboards. The ones I made cost about $150 each but they're exactly how I want them. Its pretty easy to do, might require some soldering depending what kind of PCB you get but other then that as long as you follow a guide then you should be good to go. Most kits or parts are only for tenkeyless or smaller size keyboards, but if you want a full size and still get customization look at the GMMK keyboard
I used an app called Classic Shell, highly recommended. And yes I built both keyboards
Could be the lens on the camera
I might at some point but for now I'll keep it as is
He has the wrong cooler listed in his parts list. He's using the Dark Rock 4 but has the Pro listed
How did you get your GPU temps so low? Mine sits around 72 C, but thats when I take the power draw down to 80%. Check out my build, we have similar setups. I'm looking to upgrade my M9 Plus to the U9S I think. Nicely done by the way.
Its the Aukey RGB lamp from amazon
Yes, I like it and would recommend. It stays pretty cool for what it is
Will do, thanks!
Yeah it seems like this is almost the best I can get it for now
Yeah just had to swap out the CPU cooler!
The keeb had Box Browns installed and it must have been a defective batch or something because they started to click on the upstroke and downstroke after only a few weeks of use. Really disappointing because I loved those switches. The issue was stemming from inside each switch so there was no easy way to solve it.
Either way, I know what you mean about the arrow keys. Just waiting on some more browns and keycaps to come in before I do a 2nd version of my keeb, gonna add arrow keys and shrink the right shift to make it fit. Really tempted to jump on some new boards though...I hate this hobby haha!
It does not interfere with HDD installation in this case
Closest thing I can think of is the Ganss GK87
No problem. I can't recommend the V1 enough, very nice little case
It has no problem fitting. With the top panel on, there is about 1-2 mm of clearance between the top of the cooler and the acrylic window. Not sure why PCPP lists it as an incompatibility, but the real clearance of the Core V1 is something like 147 mm. Also I think it looks excellent in this case
Can you connect the strip directly to the included smart device or do you have to plug it into your mobo? Not sure if I really want to buy a Hue+
Really great build! Does that case have a built in RGB strip in the top?
Sweet build! I'm looking to move my rig into this case. Do you use the hub included with the case for your fans, lights, etc or do you use the internal USB hub you included on your part list? Just wondering what the hub that comes with the case needs to connect to on the motherboard, since my motherboard doesn't have a RGB header.
Yea it is weird. The two fans spin at one speed no matter what I set them to, and they only rev up to full speed after waking the PC, but then it settles back down to the 'silent' setting. Wish we had one more fan header on this board so we wouldn't need a splitter but this will have to do. Not sure how much effect PWM control would have on the temps of the PC anyway
Ok well I went into my BIOS and it does look like the speeds can be changed. All of the fan headers on the mobo are 4 pin, and the splitter I use is also two 4 pin connectors. I can definitely hear and feel an increase in sound/airflow respectively when I raise or lower the RPM of the two 80mm fans. Are you sure you have a dual 4 pin splitter? I have no other controller or hub
Yes, they work on PWM. I'm also using a fan splitter. Did you check to make sure the header you connected the fan(s) to are PWM supported?
I haven't overclocked the CPU because I don't really have the need to right now. At idle it sits around 29-32 C at room temperature, and under load while gaming it is usually around 51-54 C. The H7 is pretty quiet, and so are the case fans I installed, but the blower GPU is quite loud
Thanks for the recommendations. I already checked out the ATH-M40x but returned it because the clamping force was too much and the earcups didn't fit my huge ears. I might try them again with some different earcups once I get some money
Thanks! Its not awful but it does sound fairly muffled and nasal-y. It's good for the price
I recommend just getting a 240mm AIO instead of a 120mm. The latter's power isn't worth it for it's cost
Ah nice. Ouch on that mobo haha. Nice work!
Real nice build! Very similar to my own too. How'd you get a 1080? I'd kill for one
What kind of temps do you see at idle and heavy load? Curious because I'm looking into that cooler and I have the same case with an i5-8600K.
