And maybe you should go with a psu of well known, higher quality brands like seasonic, super flower, evga, be quiet, corsair etc.

To utilize the full potential of the z370 chipset you may go with an i7 8700K? Other than that, the config seems fine, maybe the price is a little high(?).

I never really took advantage out of all the cores and wanted to build a 2nd PC and needed the $/€ for it :D.

Hey, with this machine I am using HTC Vive+Deluxe Audio Strap and a wireless addon from TPCAST. I think a GTX 1070ti/1080 is a sweetspot for vr and a i7 8700k isn't really necessary. I think even with a budget of around 1300-1500$ you can build a powerful vr machine (intel i5/ryzen 5 + gtx 1070/1080). Maybe you should check out the oculus rift too. I am using a rift on my other computer more often because of the better controllers, but that's personal taste.

Thank you =). Sorry, but I can't tell you the temp differences because I use different parts after modding the case. The mesh is custom. I am using a non-delidded 8700K @4.8 and it stays under 70°C while playing cpu demanding games like CIV VI. All fans are fixed at around 800 rpm. I used another front grill in the previous evolv-build and there was definitely a massive temp drop compared to the stock front cover and now with a vented top cover it should be even more airflow.

Hey, thank you! :) I haven't tested the cpu's true capabilities yet. I am at 5GHz, 1.3 Volts now (GPU 2050MHz, 11500) and the system keeps quiet and cool. I got the elgato used for less than 90€ and I read it should be the best solution(?) for full hd recording. I am satisfied with it, but I am not a 'PRO' twitcher or 'lets player' and can't really tell which device to get^.

hey, thank you =). 8700k @ stock, non delidded and temps are around 50°C while gaming with ultra low rpm settings (silent). I was surprised how well those fans and the silent loop perform. Even the vertical gpu bracket has no negative impact on gpu temps. I have a local shop in my neighborhood where they do custom cnc jobs (www.gosumodz.com).

those are the fractal stock fans. the components are easy to cool, the case has good airflow and it is very quiet.

Thank you! the poseidon definitely fits without using the vertical kit. the glass panel is slightly touching my sleeved cables, so it is tight but no problem at all. thickness of the rad is 38mm and it is a d5 res pump combo from ek with a EK-RES X3 - TUBE 250 (204mm).

np =). with a single radiator the case is nearly perfect. I just ordered a 2nd radiator and would like to give some advice.

  • non-watercooled or aio components would look a bit lost inside this big glass box.
  • If you use shorter psu's like I did (evga g3 for example), cable management is easy.
  • For "EATX" motherboards the mainboards standoffs / the overall design should be slightly higher. It is such a tight fit, especially for the 24 pin connector or sata cables (the bottom sata port row is not usable). Using alternate cable holes would eliminate the clean look.
  • The whole construction feels a bit to wobbly without glass panels.
  • Some people say the main chamber is to narrow for 'normal' mounted wider graphics cards. I can't confirm this, because I am using the poseidon fatso and had no problems to get this thing inside. Only the glass panel is slightly touching my sleeved pcie connectors.

If you try to fit more than one radiator the case shows a little more flaws:

  • The bottom and top radiator mounts aren't aligned parallel. If you want to connect them directly, you need to improvise to get a clean, straight tube.
  • If you populate the bottom with fans and/or a radiator the with coming vertical gpu kit is not usable without modding (or you accept the fact the half of the back of the case is open).
  • The radiator mount on the right of the motherboard has limited space (especially, if the bottom is populated), a good performing radiator would collide with the front I/O cable. Fan clearance in the motherboard chamber is to limited with a radiator mounted to the bottom.
  • A cable hole/grommet from the back chamber to the case 'socket' would allow to use the space to do push/pull configurations with a bottom radiator.

Apart from that, building in this beautiful case is fun and easy.

Side note: Lian Li customer support is one of the best I experienced in the 'tech world'. Fast responding, friendly and accommodating.

thank you! it is a very tight fit for eatx. you have to remove the gromets and with my zenith extreme only the top 3 sata ports and the bottom usb 3 header are usable. It is important to route all the cables (especially the 24pin, ideally custom sleeved) before screwing down the motherboard. In my configuration a rad on the side would be possible by placing the fans into the front chamber and the rad into the psu chamber. If you want to use a bottom radiator with fans too, I don't know if the clearing space is enough for fans with standard thickness. The fan cables can be routed through the holes under the motherboard. the standard PC O11 has definitely more room for eatx configs, but has other weird design flaws.

thx! the board works well so far (newest bios), sometimes software like AURA has some strange behaviors, where I need to reboot to sync all colors. But Asus is not known for the best software experiences (I had to reinstall windows after trying AI Suite III). I am running my ram with 3200, but while coldbooting the system reboots itself (like a failed overclock, but finally in windows cpu-z shows 3200). With 2933 the system starts normally. I recycled the psu from my 'old' build with two 1080 Ti's and if I win the lottery I maybe do SLI again in the future. Someone told me it is super energy efficient to use a psu with 50% load. Maybe a myth, but I am using it like that for now. With a single gpu, 750W should be enough. All in all, I am satisfied how the system is running.

thx! It is also soldered. temps are fine for a 16-core cpu

PTjutsu's Completed Build: Poseidon

PTjutsu submitter 9 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

stock bios was trash. I am using an actual beta bios and the system runs super stable. temps are a bit high at silent settings due to only one radiator (ordered a second 360 today and will update the build/log soon). the gpu reaches high 70's with an oc around 1900Mhz. haven't tested the cpu's oc capability yet; will do it with the 2nd rad. cpu@stock reaches around 63°C at full load with low rpm settings. The screws of the cpu socket frame are a bit to short, but with brute force np :D. It is important to tighten all screws of the socket 'correctly'. I had one loose screw and the system could not detect dimm a2. this costed me an half of a day to troubleshoot this.

thank you! for a custom loop I prefer the lian li and I think it is worth the extra money. but for an aircooled or aio build I would definitely go with the phanteks or your components may look a bit lost inside the roomy pc-o11 wgx case. both are high quality, both have its flaws, the lian li feels a bit more premium.
