Description

I have been struggling to edit videos on my Macbook and after getting a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and moving to DaVinci Resolve I have decided to build myself a PC for video editing. After a lot of careful though this is the build I have come up with. The full build video can be seen at https://youtu.be/OaTEgeI_JFw The thermal testing can be seen at https://youtu.be/DcMVmLBTVMs

I see you used the deepcool instead of the commander pro. Do the fans sync together with the corsair link? nice build btw

6 of the fans are directly into the motherboard for power (it comes with 7 headers) and the three fans on the AIO go into the hub and then in to the cpu fan header (didn't want to use supplied 3 way splitter as ll120 fans have higher power requirement than the deepcool ones and this might be too much for the one header). All RGB for the 9 fans via 2 corsair fan hubs and lightening node pro. Didn't think i needed the commander pro as the motherboard is high end was happy to use it for fan control. Fans all work well for RGB but need to use iCUE where as all other RGB controlled with MSI software. If i was doing it again i would get the Bora digitial and plug in to RGB header so motherboard software can control all RGB.

Three intake fans and six exhausting. Seems like the cool air in from the bottom goes through the GPU and the leftover warm air is going out the other six fans. Does it get enough fresh air to cool everything well?

Otherwise it looks awesome!

Yes are a lot of thought I went for this. Top has to be exhaust and bottom intake as this just makes sense. So that leaves only the back fans to play with. If you set them as intake they look awful the wrong way round so yes I agree they would function better this way round, but I have to balance the looks vs performance. I plan to do some testing and compare temps in both configurations and if a big difference it might persuade me to turn them round (but for the initial build video and photos this way round looks best).

I know what you mean. The struggle is real. I have come to the point where if I am okay with the temps I am getting that's good for me. I don't have to have the absolute lowest temp possible at the cost of some aesthetics. Nothing wrong with a good balance.

This is SOOO clean! I love seeing builds like this that look like they've been put time into. Excellent job!

do those razer fan covers restrict airflow at all?

They don't seem to, but i haven't tested this

Hi Flan81, This is an awesome build. I love it very much! Already left a like on Youtube and an upvote on here. Can you explain a little bit on how to plug in the cables, specifically for the Deepcool AIO and all 9 fans. Did you plug all 9 fans PWM headers into FH-10 and then plug the header from FH-10 to the motherboard’s CPU_FAN header? Thank you!

Hi thanks for the comments. The motherboard has 7 case fan headers so the 6 case fans plug into a header each. There are also 3 fans on the radiator and these plug into the fan hub which then plugs into the CPU fan header. The LL120 fans require twice the power of the supplied deepcool fans and while the AIO comes with a three fan splitter I was worried that this would be too much power for the one header (particularly when the fans ramp up on booting up) so instead power for the hub comes via sata. For RGB three CPU fans go to one fan hub and other 6 fans go to another fan hub. Both fan hubs then go to lightening node pro and this then goes to motherboard via USB. The motherboard comes with a corsair fan header but only allow 1 x fan hub to connect to max of 6 fans.

Hi Flan81, Thanks for the detailed explanation. How is the Deepcool Castle 360ex working for you so far? I am debating this AIO over Corsair h150i... What's the temperature like? Thanks,

Is there enough room for a second radiator down to the bottom?

  • 3 months ago

yes you can fit 3 x 360mm radiators in this case

How does the deepcool castle cool that 3900x? I have been looking at them and wondering if they are good. Temps?

I love your build! Very similar to my own. Not sure what Im missing, but I seem to be benching much higher then yourself. Do you run Xamp on your mobo?

It is the Razer version of the case so the theme choose itself
