Description

I decided to build a new gaming PC with mostly "top tier" items. For instance, I went with the i9-9900k and the Samsung PRO m2 drive. With that being said, the GPU is not the 'absolute' best, since it is a 2080 (non-ti) and I am only using 16 GB of RAM. With that being said, I'm very happy with how this build came out and the performance of it. The most unique part about this build is the monitor inside of the case. This was done by using the 5" monitor mentioned in the part list and a 3D printed bezel (available for sale here) to hold the monitor where an SSD would typically go. The temps are being shown via NZXT's CAM software.

I used two separate builds from PCPP for inspiration - this one and this one. I also chose to do fan cooled with a large heatsink, rather than water cooled since I like the look better and I didn't want to risk any future leakage on to the parts. The only negative here is that, since the case is so small, the GPU does get warm at 82 degrees under full load. I am currently experimenting with replacing the front 2x intake beQuiet fans with 2x Noctua fans to help with this. I can also change the fan curve on the CPU fans as well as add another 2 fans if needed. While 82 degrees is warm, there is no thermal throttling for the GPU and the CPU remains cool under load.

Best color scheme. Planning on doing red and white for my next build even though I never see inside my PC due to the placement lol

Trust me, all you need to do is replace your ATX size PSU to SFX size. In my case after my PSU been replaced to Corsair SFX 750, the under load temp dropped from 82°C to 67°C.

Good call.. I will look into that. Thank you

Tried the corsair SF and didn't change my temps at all unfortunately. I think the biggest problem here is the large heatsink is blocking most airflow

Hey, First of all... great build! I am considering getting this case and throwing in a asus strix 2070 but I am worried about gpu compatibility, my card will be around 48-49mm in girth and looking online your card is around 50mm so did you have any problems with cooling?

My GPU maxes at around 83 degrees which is pretty warm. However, the main reason is because I have a huge CPU cooler and my 2x intake fans are beQuiet lower RPM fans that don't push a ton of air. There is plenty of room for the GPU to go longer and wider, no problem.

What are the two fans that you used on the CPU cooler, are both noctua NF-A15 Chromax Black ?

They are both Noctua Chromax but the one touching the case is a 120mm NF-S12A and the other is a 140mm NF-A15

Hi,

There is zo minimal space between your GPU en Cooler. In some other pictures of other builds there is more space. I think you put your cooler up side down. I think the top have to be down en the down side off the cooler has to be on the top.

Do you have the D15S of the D15?

Hey there, I did have to put the cooler on upside down so that it would fit. When it was on rightside-up, I was unable to screw it down on the CPU. I have the D15S.
