The fan on the back of the case looks to be set as an intake, instead of an exhaust. Would recommend flipping it if you have not already done so.
Darkness Eternal. It's lovely.
That's a bonding experience. And when you are dedicated to making a themed build come to fruition, that's something to feel good about once it is complete.
How satisfied were you once this was at the point of completion. It's quite smooth.
Those colors give a pleasing nebula theme.
A black/red to get the eyes to water a little in appreciation.
I'll probably never get tired of black/red themes. And the build itself is quite appealing too.
My first thought was that this looked like it came out of a kids classroom project. I guess that wasn't too far off going by that description. I bet it smells flower fresh too.
I apologize for only seeing this comment just now. I don't check the site very often when haven't done anything lately.
The LED can be found in the parts list as a Custom. Amazon or Newegg, though I got it from the former.
Black/Red and some sexy violet.
Possibly overclocked, though it wasn't specifically mentioned in their description. I also got 2666 Speed Ram and it accepted a 3066 XMP preset.
Actually, I used to to that with my phone's light when I wanted to check my GPU fans or.. anything in there really. I'd put it on the top dust filter sometimes because it gave an interesting light effect to the inside. But when I made the Post for this site, I also added a light strip, and this past christmas, I added the second one that came in the combo pack.
I'm quite satisfied with my routing, I managed to keep it out of sight and lint the top and right(Front) of the case. Outside of physical hardware switching, I think I'm done fancying up my case with lighting and fans at this point, don't have any more space for more anyway.
That's about a year's worth. I have a dog that I share my room with, and a ceiling Fan that helps spread that all around. I don't generally dust often until there is an excuse like "well I may as well do it since I'm moving everything from this area anyway". But I do this desktop space cleaning at least once near the end of the year.
I do like seeing the internals, I tend to just start at my GPU sometimes when I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online, or another casual-ish game, knowing my system is doing all kinds of work so I can entertain myself.
I used the same case for my Mother's PC / Home PC build. I also liked the potential airflow it offered, and I wanted to personally do an mATX build.. Actually, I think I mentioned this stuff the last time I posted on your submission.
I don't have much to show about my setup, but I did clean it recently this past november. I've made some further additions after what I put there, but haven't taken new images. https://imgur.com/a/F0IYQsH
I thought that formatting looked familiar. You are clearly not afraid of the brown, and instead embrace it.
Also, I didn't even notice the fans on the GPU at first until I saw another comment that mentioned it.
Simple and to the point description is simple and to the point.
Just get all the colors. All OF THEM. However,
One of these things is not like the other..
Well then.. Browsing through that image stack was an adventure in itself. This build was well documented.
Well, I think it's safe to say that the GPU is not lacking airflow.
That phone is so far away.. I wouldn't want to bother reaching for it. Do you have one of those mechanical grabby arms?
Oh, and that PC looks nice too. How is that sound bar working for you?
Mm, delicious violet accents..
I couldn't tell from the images but is that windows install $0.00 because it's unactivated? it doesn't always show that watermark, just curious.
This color combination always reminds me of a creamsicle. A lot of personalized effort was put into this, That's pretty neat.
Oh man, That tape job.
I'm curious what you are going to do with this system..
Oh, guess you found this here.
It looks a little better after taking care of the extra additions that have been made since then, however I don't have any current images of such.
Regardless of that, thank you for admiring the build.
Blackout with a hint of blue highlights. Not bad.
Well, now it's featured. Good job, that box got a nice little face lift.
Couldn't be any more well planned out than it looks. Clean af.
That's some nice perforation work. I'd probably get too annoyed doing all of those.
My Wii has been on standby for the mast many years just collecting dust.
I'm sure the Silver Surfer will really enjoy his new PC.
That's a lotta images. Well placed cabling too.
I was amused by the peeping cat face.
I can only imagine you are well aware of that GPU placement, and probably also placed it there for aesthetics, but it still concerns me a bit. I'm unsure if that motherboard has multiple x16 slots, And also possibly having more limiting airflow with it where it was placed.
Are we all sure it's okay for that PC to be inhaling colorful flowing flames like that?
Who knows when that'll be, and I really have no idea as far as the parts. Right now I'd would like to put an i7-7700 into my system, as that's the highest my B150 motherboard supports which can't provide overclocking anyway, and whatever future mid or higher end GPU that comes out. AMD currently has my attention on that front.
However, Ideally I think I would like my personal PC, for gaming and whatever else, to be another mATX build as I do like being able to peer at the interior components of a system with some flare. Then I'd have an additional iTX build for any editing, recording or streaming that I may or may not want to do to supplement it.
Inspiration: The Build.
I don't have the the funds to attempt a iTX build, but that seems like the next path one day, since I've done one each of an ATX and mATX build so far.
Talk about a confined rave party.. I didn't know what to do with my "Your need for Speed" sticker from my AOC monitor. I see you gave it a place to live.
I thought this was a staff post or something at first with the way that description is organized.
The build itself? "DIY" seems to apply here as it looks a little roughed up, like it was patched up after an off-road experience with an "Eh, it'll probably hold" view, and Noctua's quality color scheme. Now, that's not bad as long as it works, it's rustic.
It is quite alluring, isn't it. I've recently made minor additions to my setup and gave it the End-of-the-Year-Cleaning. https://imgur.com/a/F0IYQsH
After some snooping it seems I've left a commented of my own on your build first. Came to return the favor did you? You have an amusing icon by the way.
So.. Where in this build does the phrase "low key" apply?
Looks like you didn't hold back and it is well done for all the currently empty space you say that you're going to fill in the future.
I'm fairly sure that top rear fan is acting as an intake with the direction it's facing. If it's meant to be exhaust, I suggest flipping it around.
And despite your mention of not being about appearance, you can push the extra length of that same fan cable through to the backside of the case so it's not reaching across the motherboard.
Very professional. I can appreciate Black/Red themes.
I'll see your KAGOME and raise you a Kirara.
Even though you can't see them, as I assume a solid side panel, managing the cables to a visually satisfactory amount brings peace to my mind. Aside from that, that board is actually ATX? Maybe that case is just that large, making it look like a mATX.
Well that looks like a pretty clean and simple corner with room to grow.
This may not matter whatsoever, but I suggest pulling the PC slightly away from the wall(pulling it forwards) so that the exhaust has more space to.. exhaust. It's looking pretty limited back there, though is just my personal nitpicking.
Man, I sure do wonder what could have possibly inspired this build. I feel like the answer is right in front of me but I just can't quite place the theme.
Mm.. Delicious purple.
This motherboard has one basic RGB header. It is at the upper right of the board, to the left of the AMD Fan RGB header.
I refer you to this Gamers Nexus video about the ATX version of this case. https://youtu.be/IqoGsaYJIzU?t=460
If you are asking my personal opinion, you can hear this PC if nothing else is going on, as it is an open mesh front after all, and the fans are max RPM in my situation, but while listening to anything I don't really notice it.
Looks like you've covered the whole color spectrum there. Your PC is a rave machine.
Curious why you didn't put the Noctua as rear exhaust so all the other fans matched on the AIO.
Actually, After looking at the parts list I can see that you tried to make all three RGB fans work.
Sounds like how I made the switch, except I went from a Lenovo Y510p (i7 4700MQ and GT 755m SLI) to my current desktop. The laptop worked for ESO but it ran hot and a capable desktop just makes things more enjoyable. The learning process can be fun if you can manage to understand it all and how a PC build works.
I can appreciate me some violet in a theme.
Not that you need my approval, but I appreciate the Red/Violet color theme selection.
It's so monochrome it lovely. The box figure sort of looks like it was spot colored.
Thanks you for commenting and showing appreciation for the image eye-candy I tried to provide.
