I'm really loving it so far! Great feel, great build quality and finish. I got mine with MX Browns because I prefer getting some tactile feedback from my presses, and its about the same pressure as a Red switch. The ROG Armoury software is great. If you do get one, make sure you do a firmware update on it ASAP though, an older version (0.29 I think) has a bug that bricks the keyboard if you press the lighting key between post and the OS boot, I had to exchange mine a day after purchase because of that, but apart from that hiccup it's been pretty fantastic so far!
Thank you! Turns out the CoolerMaster vertical GPU kit fits on pretty much any case as long as you don't mind sacrificing the PCIE brackets lol. It also doesn't starve the airflow to the GPU by sticking it so close to the side panel it chokes :) So yeah, I'm really enjoying this case, great airflow, great features, amazing look.
Actually multiple reasons I went with the black and white version! To start with, the case comes with a pair of Halos, which allows me to only get regular ML140s for the front, not coloured ones to match the theme. Second, the nice thing about a white interior is that it reflects and takes the colour of any lighting you set up in the case. If I end up wanting to change some lighting element inside, the case itself will reflect those changes. Black interiors absorb all lighting so they basically just look black. It's pretty nice, but IMO it shafts the whole point of RGB lighting.
Haha, mostly some Linux Distros here for dev environments, but yeah!
Haha how come? :p
Thanks! I know black/red builds are rather cliche but I think I pulled that one off right :)
Asus' website, they have a wallpaper section!
Nope. Ryzen Natively supports up to DDR4 2666. Anything above is a tossup. This instantly booted at 2400.
It was heavier than I thought, felt very sturdy and solid. I'm pretty sure it'll be able to handle it.
Given it was with a none PWM fan, its speed was nesr constant. Its a Corsair SP120 silent edition with LED lighting. Honestly that wasnt loud.
Theyre indicated, climbs to about 74-76 under torture test loads after an hour or so
Awesome! Good luck!
Mostly means your cables were bad, it happens :p
Wait so the fans are shooting are just for decoration?? Fair enough, though that wasn't eeally needed since that is indeed an open air case. Your fans are ventilating the window right now :/ Regardless, riser cables do not affect performance at all, thats a myth
Nice build! How did you find building in the Core P3? From the looks I'm guessing you did not get the version with the PCIE riser cable? I'm considering it for my system but I've seen lots of mixed reviews on the case.
EDIT: Also I'm not sure I'm getting this right, what are the three fans shooting air at? Or is there a liquid cooler in the case not included in the part list?
Pretty sure that "getting coffee lake" right now is more of an exercise in patience than common sense option. I doubt everyone wouldn't buy new kaby lake systems if it wasn't for the fact that coffee lake stock is nonexistent (especially in Canada) and that >200$ boards won't be a thing for the next two to three months. Regardless, pure gaming performance across both generations are very close to one another.
Add Youtube Red and I think we've got them all
Glad you do :)
