We peeled the sticker off. Kyle from AwesomesauceNetwork on Youtube always suggests to take the sticker off if it conflicts with the color theme, and the yellow on the sticker definitely stuck out from the rest of the black and white. My girlfriend sat there scraping it off for about 30 minutes I think while I was putting other stuff together lol.
Not expensive enough I guess. :/ But yall have given me plenty of appreciation already, so I really can't complain. :)
Thanks! Having everything in there so snug was a little terrifying but I love the look of it!
Etsy.com has a ton of individual sellers that make the vinyl decals. Pretty much just go there and search for whatever you'd like, there's probably something! And thank you, I'll check that out!
Good luck! Building for someone else is very gratifying.
What benchmarks would you like? I may be able to run some today.
Yeah the most limiting factor in this build is the number of pwm headers. Only one aside from the main cpu header. :( I'm definitely looking into more lighting though!
Etsy.com has lots of individual sellers of decals in all colors and sizes. :)
Looks great! I can see how more illumination could be really awesome. May have to look into some LED strips.
Hey thanks! More lights could definitely be in the works, though the riing fans look pretty good in person (the pics don't do justice). The stickers are like really nice vinyl decals like you would put on a car, so they're very sturdy.
Thanks a ton! That means a lot!
I agree, everything is very snug, and I'm going to keep an eye on things to make sure it's not an issue. Fortunately, the fan is only making contact with the backplate, which isn't an electrical component, and I think it will be okay.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
I'm currently overclocked to 4.5 Ghz and I idle in the mid twenties, and while gaming it sits around 50-60, will rarely get up to 70C, and only for a second before going back down. I'm sure if I got an AIO it would be an overclocking champ, but I partly got the phanteks cooler for the look, which I'm really happy with!
This episode was a lot of fun to watch! I love that the fire was part of the plan from the very beginning, and it worked out great. Hopefully one day I'll get to do a build that's more out of the box.
Okay I just got a score of 11123 on Fire Strike, with no GPU OC, and my CPU OC'd at 4.5 Ghz. Hope this helps!
Just let me know which benchmarks you would like me to run, and I can get the results posted!
That paint job. Very jealous! +1
This is one of my favorite red/black builds I've seen. Loving the cables, and in my experience the enthoo line of cases are awesome. +1
Looks great with all the lighting! I would suggest getting some sleeved cable extensions if you really want it to pop aesthetically. It's amazing how much of more badass the sleeved cables look. Very nice build though, I like it!
I'm glad you like the build though, thank you!
The original sapphire cooler stayed perfectly straight, but the kraken allowed it to sag a bit. I messed with some of the screws since taking those pictures and now it's much straighter. I'm also hoping that once I get some cable combs for those PCI cables they'll help hold it up a bit.
Love the name. Although I think it looks pretty cool! +1
Thanks! My only criticism of the luxe LEDs is that the "white" isn't quite white, otherwise I'd probably use that for my build as well.
Thanks for the tip! I haven't had any air flow issues yet but I may have to try it out.
Thanks for the +1! One advantage of a B/W build is it's not too hard to find matching parts without compromising on the components too. Are there particular cable combs I should get or will any probably work?
I'll probably try a mild overclock soon too, and I'll try to give an update on temps after that.
Thank you! I've heard it's not super uncommon for the 390s to get pretty hot, but I also may have just gotten unlucky or something. I saw some confusion as to whether or not the kraken would work with the 390 but it definitely gets the job done!
When I run Heaven with the x31 it maxes out around 60c. What are your temps like the with the cpu cooler? With some games mine still gets in the upper 60s/mid 70s.
