I built this around the Ryzen 9 3900x + Quadro RTX 4000, and the NH-D15 Chromax Black (because it looks amazing...) I mostly use SolidWorks and Keyshot for Industrial Design freelance work. I wanted to keep this under $2800, but also make it look super clean. White / black / single color accent with the Trident Z. It is so fast and super quiet, it looks business-like & unobtrusive in the office. Absolutely loving it so far! Thanks to all who helped with kind advice.
This is a beautiful piece of work. The matte black finish looks incredible, and it works just as well as the old brown brown. With the CHROMAX covers, it just BARELY fits into an NZXT h510, maybe 0.5 mm to spare. Plenty of room without the covers on.
Very fast. The RGB effects are super smooth and bright, really well done.
I am happy with this so far, it has worked seamlessly in all my 3D programs. It is silent most of the time, only becomes barely audible around 60C. The hottest I have seen it was under max res benchmark at 79C. I really appreciate the understated and professional look of it. Black tie.
Reeeeaaallllly fast. One of the only options for PCIe 802.11Ax right now. I picked it based on brand name and it comes with a nicer antenna than the few other options. The antenna is magnetic and rotates 90deg in its base.
