2/13/19 Recieved an Aorus Xtreme 2080TI(temps are about 5C warmer underload than the Asus Strix 2080TI) and ordered a Aorus Z390 Master. I'm probably going to go back to my Castle 240 AIO, since the Ryuo doesn't work with Gigabyte boards.

2/5/19 Asus Strix ROG 2080ti OC GPU failed, displaying artifacts and crashing/BSOD.

1/23/19 Razer Nommo Pro stopped working over USB. Going back to reliable Razer Nommo Chroma. Bought a i9 9900K, Asus RoG Ryuo 240mm OLED RGB AIO CPU cooler, Razer HDK, Razer Nommo Pro Chroma THX speakers, Razer Nari Ultimate Wireless Headphones with Haptics Feedback & Cablemod Pro Blood Red/Black cable set. Relocated the Quadstellaer's temperature probe to the GPU compartment so that it automatically opens the power actuator doors when the 2080ti hits 56C.

I decided to do a mostly air build, because I like to upgrade often. My previous build is a C700P with 1080TI SLI. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/ML7WGX

Her name is Shelby. She is definitely a part of the fam! As much as I love my PC, If I had to choose between this build and her....I'd choose her :)

Just add some RGB on her and sync it with your PC.

I really like the RGB lighting profiles and diffused lighting of the Quadstellar. I may get a Gamdias RGB PSU.

Amazing. And what are your cpu temp.

  • 15 months ago
  • 2 points

Thanks. CPU temp is 29C at idle. 49C to 55C gaming. The reason why a few of the YouTubers say that this case can run hot is because they starve the case for air by putting a radiator up front. When you use air cooling, the radiator should be in the motherboard compartment below the motherboard. I also removed the top GPU compartments GPU bracket. It lowered my GPU temp 5C.

How do you add all the extras to your list, I’ve been trying to find out about this. (By extras I mean everything in the “other” section of the list)

You have to create the part in the list, when it is not available to be selected.

Thank you. The building was definitely interesting, because you have an inverted motherboard... and you have to continually rotate the case to get to certain areas.

I was wondering, are u planning on making a costum loop on this case, cuz costum loops on this case looks so cool, but it’s okay if no, cuz the build looks so cool

  • 15 months ago

Thanks. I thought about doing a loop, but current AIO look better than CPU water blocks and I upgrade too much for a liquid loop. Asus has 2 types of OLED screen CPU AIO's coming out this year.

This Quadstellar 1080ti sli build runs cool with 7 CF 120 fans.

I’m going to watch the video later and give u my thoughts about it, But oh my god it’s so amazing to have sli gpu running cool with these fans

  • 15 months ago
  • 1 point

The video is just of the actuators opening and closing the 4 compartment doors. It's very short. I also wondered if air cooling would be enough to cool this case....since most builds have a single GPU in the GPU compartment or a liquid loop. Fortunately they leave room for 2 more 120mm fans right in front of where SLI GPU's would be seated on the motherboard. With the 2 extra fans I am very happy with 1080ti sli temps in this case. I haven't seen anyone else do it, so it was a big gamble coming from a cool C700P.

I like how it's not a wall of RGB, more of accents. It's not like that GameMax Abyss, the one with the infinity mirror. 255/255

That would be good, but would the rgb be visible?

It would because the PSU chamber has a tinted glass panel.

Thank you. I play games, watch anime, torrents, movies etc.... My last Tower was a C700P. I started building many many years ago because I was sick of the progression of consoles. Even though I own every one of them since coleco. I wanted something that looked futuristic, and that didn't look like a typical pc tower.

Hi,

Did the 1080Ti fit in SLI in the separate GPU chamber? Could you post a pic of it?

Thanks

  • 14 months ago
  • 1 point

I only tried one 1080ti in the GPU compartment. Although I didn't experience any thermal throttling, I didn't like the high temps off of a single GPU. So because of that, I didn't even try SLI in the GPU compartment. If you are going liquid loop, I would recommend the GPU compartment. If you are going with air cooling, you are better off using the motherboard directly. SLI also looks way better through the tempered glass from the motherboard, once you remove the GPU bracket panel. One of my pictures shows this. You can add two extra fans to the already included 4 up front, to blow air directly over both GPU's in the central motherboard area.

  • 14 months ago
  • 1 point

You mentioned temps in regards to your GPU’s. So there was not adequate air flow in the GPU chamber? If so do you think this is mostly due to using dual GPU’s or just the design of the Quadstellar? (I see you addressed this is a later comment)

By removing the base of the GPU section do you feel this allows better visibility of your components?

I really like the design of the case but after I’ve seen builds in it I got the feeling it wasn’t really best for showing off the components.

Any feelings on needing to use an app for lighting?

  • 14 months ago
  • 2 points

Sorry I'm late to respond. I had to replace my Quadstellar with another new one because of an issue with one of the actuators.

I did try single GPU and temps were fine. When 1080ti sli is in the GPU chamber, it produces a lot of heat. Temps can be fine with an aggressive fan curve profile, but it creates a lot of fan noise. When you remove the GPU bracket, it is more visually appealing to see through the tempered glass panels.

I know a lot of reviewers dislike the app. I personally like it. The lighting profiles are awesome and being able to read the temps and adjust fan speed rocks!!

Just a genuine question, how hard was it to build in that weird-a** case?

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

It wasn't hard. It was awkward. Having to rotate the entire case takes a little getting use to, and the motherboard is inverted.

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Well yeah, I asked because the case looked absolutely weird and I thought it would be hard to build. I just have one more question. How is the airflow in that case??

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

For everything except the GPU(separate compartment), airflow is amazing. Before I had a Strix 2080ti. It would max out at 76C in the GPU compartment. I relocated the Quadstellar's temp sensor to the GPU compartment to open the front panels when the GPU reaches 56C. My current 2080ti has less than stellar cooling, and reaches 79C-83C. It's no fault of the case manufacturer....I would make sure your GPU has a full 3 fan setup or pushes air out of the case.

How is the motherboard performing so far? reliability ?

  • 4 months ago

Absolutely no problems. The only thing annoying is the RGB Fusion software. I set my GPU and motherboard with it, and then uninstalled it.

  • 4 months ago

What if we're satisfied with the default lighting of the RGB? do we still necessarily uninstall the software? and how do you uninstall it exactly? sorry I'm new to this.

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

The only reason I uninstalled it was because it interferes with my Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro ram. If you don't have that specific ram, you are all good.

Oh I see, and in what way does it interfere? with the lighting or ?

It interferes with Corsair's RGB lighting on the ram. It does not affect Corsair LL fans.

Hello bud, awesome build! I have the Master mobo aswell but the clearance my NZXT X42 Kraken has is really bad, it covers the far left DDR4 slot, i noticed you have all slots occupied, is there much clearance with the Castle you have or was it a tight fit ? I've got the G.Skill Trident Z 16gb kit atm, want to go for the full 32gb.

  • 1 month ago
  • 2 points

Good morning. Thanks. With the Castle 240 there is absolutely no clearance issues on either side of the pump/block. There is a little more than half a centimeter of space left, once it's installed between the ram and pump hoses. I'll post a better pic in a few minutes.
