I do believe your CPU heatsink is installed backwards. The fan should be blowing hot air out of the case, not into it.

It's reminds me of the conundrum, should I build what I can afford, or save up to afford the best. I always build within budget, waiting takes too long :)

I'm glad you got the boot issues solved. I do like the case you chose, it is very beautiful, how was the build process in this case?

I think what swazitron is trying to say, is that the case you have isn't very compatible with your motherboard.

This may be causing your issues with your NVME drive, as your motherboard may not have all of the proper standoffs and screws installed. I would double check your motherboard documentation and your install, to make sure there is a screw and standoff where there should be one.

If you can't install the standoffs in the proper position, you have a few options. Get a different motherboard, Get a different case, Build your own case, cry, bleed, ect.

I wish you luck, because all the documentation I've read about your motherboard and case say they should not be compatible.

EDIT: your motherboard MIGHT be compatible at 272mm, and the case supporting a max of 272mm ATX board.

Things that Noctua Fans match: 1. Brown 2. Cardboard 3. Rust 4. Other Noctua Fans

Well done, very ingenious solution to color-coordinate those fans!

The only problem with briefcase builds, is anyone can pick them up.

I kid, but consider adding a cable lock down to this build!

Comment reply on Umarrii's Completed Build: First PC Build and setup makeover

When I overclock my systems, I have to know the voltage limits, and the heat limits of the hardware. An example of the heat limit, my motherboard is rated for 180 watts of heat, but my CPU is rated at 220 watts. My CPU could damage my motherboard if I'm not careful with the heat!

Voltage limits are more of a "if this voltage is reached, how hot is the hardware." Also, can the hardware withstand this high voltage, and for how long?

once I have this knowledge, I then make a goal on overclocking. For CPU, I usually aim for 500mhz overclock. For RAM, I aim for the next level of speed, ex 2133 instead of 1866mhz.

for GPU, it all depends on your needs. If you want it to be quieter, underclock it. If you want it faster, overclock it, but be slower than with the other parts, you don't want to fry it. 10hmz increases without any voltage change, to see where you get first. Then, change the voltage till it's stable, and your happy with the result.

I also only overclock one part at a time, just so I can keep track of it in my head.

THEN I play Doom* and see if the system is stable, with HWmonitor running in the back ground to see what the temps are. I do something real world, others like to use Prime85 to stress the CPU at 100%.

Hope this helps, and good luck with your overclock!

I hope a new BIOS update helps with your RAM speed issues. Otherwise, lovely build!

it looks like a good build! However, it does look like your CPU Heatsink Fan is turned the wrong direction. I would double check your airflow, but otherwise it looks good!

as an alternative, you can flip the fan on the heatsink over, and it will push air out the top of the case.

I agree, it's the difference between single channel and dual channel. Just take them both out when the system has no power, and put them in slot 2 and 4.

on a final note, this build looks great, and it seems like you managed to get a good overclock, so +1 for it all!

depends on what you want the monitor for. Are you gaming, or creating CAD files? it just depends on your need.

Hi, I'm Vergere, welcome to PC Anonymous, and I too, have a building addiction. I can't follow a budget, I draw my builds by hand, and my test bench is covered in tools and parts.

I wouldn't have it any other way, +1

I happen to agree, the front fans on your case seem to be pushing air out the front, instead of taking in cool air.

Time spent doing cable management has not been wasted!

I do have one part of feedback, You should double check which way your CPU heatsink fan is directing the air, as it looks like it is mounted backwards.
