stevensmeister's Completed Build: My Coffee Lake Rig

stevensmeister submitter 5 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

They weren’t great ended up switching to an Atx set up and gpu temps dropped 10 degrees. It was not great but I also didn’t go with a sfx psu which lots of people do with this case.

It's very doable. You can do an air cooler with two fans on the front.

To be honest, I've heard a lot of bad reviews about their RGB sticks not being very reliable. As it seems, you are running into those issues too. I went with the safe bet and went with non rgb ram from TridentZ. But, yes to have the ram work at the advertised speed, you have to go to your XMP profile on your bios and set it to the 3200mhz its rated for. As far as the dying goes, you may need to RMA them.

Yeah depending on GPU, you won't even see the RGB lighting that comes with the case, or the red leds that are on it.

I mean I guess if you went with the Hybrid 1080 or something similar.. or even a sfx power supply it would be great for sure. Just wasn't the case for me.

Thank you!

Yeah, plus my gpu was terrible for the Nano S as far as airflow goes, and my temps were through the roof. This definitely took care of that.

Managed to reach 4.8 on 1.375 voltage. I definitely didn’t win the silicon lottery.

Just bought one off ebay that had a little pixel that was missing.. the warranty is still good on it so I may try and RMA it.

Yep I'm in the USA. It does say preorder, but underneath New Item Coming Soon should be expected availability November 28th, 2017.

I actually have one coming from B&H I ordered on 10/09 that just shipped today, but I read that they are getting their stock for the 8700k and the 8600k on 11/28. So I'd assume they wont get more stock until around 11/28?

Just built a pc on my page very similar to yours. Looks great!

It's not too bad really. Cable management is definitely harder though. I'd recommend at least a semi modular psu for it.

I know it's a little bit different CPU but the 6100 clock speeds are higher.

So far ran firestrike and the tests came back fine. I know there's a website that did bottleneck tests for the pentium 4560, and there was no noticeable bottleneck all the way up to the 1060 6gb. Anything after was significantly bottlenecked.

Yeah I tried to find that psu on the list but for some reason I couldn't find it? And I definitely recommend though if you ever decide to build with this case to get a modular or semi modular psu. And thanks! I managed to get it before the mining craze really ramped up.

I went with a similar build as well, almost only difference is I went mini itx. But nice build, love fractal design cases.

I'm using a 27 inch Samsung Curved monitor. It's 1080 with a 60hz rate. It OC's to 72. Came with freesync and cost 200 and it was local. So I picked it up. Will probably switch to ultrawide though after a bit.

Thanks! Was lucky enough to actually get a RX 580 and retail and was in stock at the time too.

I'm pretty new to pc's as well, but I really liked this case. I haven't really had experience with that case. I wanted to go with a smaller build this time and this case is great. I appreciate that, it was fun being my first one.
