bearylazy's Completed Build: First Build: 1070 Ti Gaming

bearylazy submitter 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

Yeah, I think I'm going to get a couple intake fans for the front. I've looked at reviews for this case, and the current configuration actually works pretty well from a thermal perspective with negative pressure compared to moving the fans to the front. That being said, I don't really want the dust build up inherent in a negative pressure situation, and the GPU could use some fresher air. I'm planning on adding 1-2 intake fans at the front to have more of a neutral air configuration.

I like your build, btw. Very sleek, well thought out, and well constructed.

you can plug in the 3 pin into the 4 pin one, just leaving the far right one out.

It looks like based on your pictures the fans are all configured for exhaust, at least I think. My understanding is the fan framing points to where the air goes. So if the fan framing is against the frame, the air should be pushing out through the opening. Same with the pump, I think that's in the push radiator config, typical for top mounted radiator placement.

I got done with my build today, and i have a pretty loud gurgling/rattling pump sound from the coolmaster. I hope I can figure out how to fix that, otherwise I'll have to replace it. Not sure if you ran into similar issues with your pump.

I was thinking about having the fans as intake at the front, ie, blowing inwards, but I would have to use the "ugly" backside of the coolmaster fans. Is this something you considered? Trying to get optimal airflow/noise level, and a bit confused how to set the fans up at the front and rear. The filters seem set up in the front so I'm thinking front intake is what the case is designed for.

This is actually funny. I'm building almost the identical rig as this, just with a blower GTX 1070 Ti and a H500i (because the lights and CAM software weirdly appeal to me for no reason), down to the exact same PSU and motherboard. We probably had similar selection criteria at a very similar time. Starting from the build guides, modifying as made sense, adjusting to use not too many sites (and preferring amazon), clean looks including clean motherboard face plate, and adjusting for budget. I've got to say, I'm excited how your build looks and the comments so far seem to say "this was fairly easy and pretty rewarding". I hope mine turns out as well as yours. Tell me how it goes, I'm curious any tips, drawbacks, benefits, you have with your build. This is the first build I've done, and I really want it to go well.
