Mighty S M O L build +1
Very compact, +1 What PSU are you using?
Yes, flip around the front fans, and put your GPU in the top PCIe slot.
1) It looks like all your fans are exhausting out the air you should flip around the front fans. 2) Your GPU should be in the top PCIe slot because it's x16 while the one it's currently in is x8.
Nice build! bit of a typo in the first pic where it says i7 9900k.
Your clones are very impressive, you must be very proud.
Sounds about right.
Damn, that's awesome!
Very nice! +1
How much did the system cost in total?
That's a nice space heater you got there. +1
That's some awesome cable management! +1
Very nice first build! The i5 8400 and RTX 2060 is a great combination for a mid-range system for gaming.
Are you threatening me master Jedi?
Which vertical GPU mounting bracket did you use?
Very nice build! +1. How did you get the solder off the IHS and CPU die?
Is that a katana in the background of the first pic? and +1 very nice build!
Damn, nice setup!
Sorry, I don't know how to post a pic on here.
I saw 2200g then RTX 2070 and thought wth, then I read the title lol
Alright, good luck with your build.
The fans are not great but they aren't bad either, and the tubes are indeed as
cheap as they look... :(
TBH though, a $100-$150 premium is cheaper than making your own custom water cooling loop, and a GPU water block alone is over $100, not to mention the thermals and acoustics is far superior to any air-cooled one, especially the EVGA XC ULTRA.
Oh man, fitting in that GPU with a second 240mm rad for the CPU was a pain in the *** for the meshify C.
I don't know.
With the CPU's 240mm rad it made more sense to mount it to the front.
Na, I have that case too in black and it adds to the look IMO.
It does well for stock 4.3ghz all core, but if you do 4.8-5ghz all core it can get hot, but that depends on the voltage. Unfortunately, my 8700k can't do 5ghz below 1.35 volts, so it can get very hot. For better temps, I would have to delid or get a 360mm AIO.
The mobo is nice once you update the bios and get used to the layout, I think ASUS and MSI mobo have simpler overclocking, it's pretty great otherwise and has a lot of USB compared to other similarly priced Z390 atx mobo, the RGB is nice too.
The only reason I kept the case is because my desk is very shallow and I rather not keep my pc on a carpeted floor even with a riser under it.
Go with a bigger case.
I'm at a loss for words.
RivaTunerStatistics and HWMonitor.
These IPS 1440p/144hz monitors are very hit or miss in regards to IPS glow/backlight bleed, unfortunately, mine was a miss, and has quite a bit of IPS glow.
Read the description.
/\ Check the details and description. /\
Thanks! My H100i is mounted to the top and exhausts out of the top of the case.
Thanks! The temps are pretty good, under full load for an extended gaming session, temps usually peak at about 65C, with ambient temps of about 76-78 Fahrenheit. No, you can't hit 144fps at 1440p on modern AAA titles, more like 80-95fps on those games with all graphical settings maxed out, but you can get 144+ fps on esports games like R6S, OverWatch, fortnite.
If you want guaranteed 144fps at 1440p go with an RTX 2080 ti or possibly 2 of them because there are some games you just won't be able to consistently get 144fps at 1440p with all graphical settings maxed out.
Sorry I haven't got around to doing any benchmarks yet.
Very interesting, thanks for the info
This build is amazing!
Can you fit a third fan in the front with that MSI gaming x trio?
