I absolutely love this build! I love the fact that you didn't neglect RGB, but you also didn't go overboard with it. Not only is this a behemoth of a PC, but it's also an incredibly sexy behemoth. Lastly, as another said, fantastic job with the pictures as well. 5/5.
I agree, that'd look pretty slick. However, I can't answer your question with certainty as I haven't looked into UV lights all that much, but I want to say yes? Not a 100% on that though. Definitely worth looking into.
You did an excellent job all around on this build. The bends especially look nice. You mentioned adding an rgb strip to give a little more lighting to the rig and personally, I think that'd help a lot. Maybe a UV strip? Regardless, it's a gorgeous build!
16gb of ram is definitely enough if all you plan to do is game on your machine. However, the moment you venture outside of gaming and into any kind of photo / video editing 32gb+ becomes a necessity. I do a small amount of video editing and it's not uncommon to see 45-50gb of ram used (I have 64gb).
Beautiful rig! I LOVE this color scheme.
The black/white looks great!
Don't forget to show us some pictures when you do!
This is an awesome build! You got some really nice components in here. However, I would seriously recommend doing some cable management.
Very nice first build! Nice components and good job on the cable management!
I don't know what I like more, this build or these comments. As a metalhead, I get all warm and fuzzy inside when I see people talking about metal in unexpected places.
That's surprising! I know on my stock i5-4690k with a stock cooler, it was hitting the 80s and 90s under load. A Hyper 212 or something similar wouldn't be a bad investment, cheap and pretty effective. I ended up slapping one on my old 4690k and my temps went from 85-90c to 55-60c under load.
As for cable management, that's one of the reasons I commented. Their PC looks super neat and tidy lol. I hate seeing a pc with nice components and terrible cable management.
Sweet components and it looks great to boot!
Beautifullllll build! Love it!
Very clean looking build! I love it!
Only thing I'd recommend for this is a new cpu cooler. Overall, fantastic build for your first!
Wow!! This build is truly amazing. Easily top 5 one of the sexiest builds I've EVER seen. I give it 11/10 stars!
The blue and purple is uhhhmazzinggg!! Love it!
This is a piece of art! You did a fantastic job with it! =D
Any drops in temps?
Although GPUs are something that have to be upgraded every 2-3 years depending on how much you do PC gaming, the rest of the rig should last you for many years to come.
However, I agree with madkatomega on the suggestion to turn your fans around. It's ideal for positive airflow. (Air comes in the front and gets exhausted out the back/top).
Very nice first build!
If your temps get high, I'd recommend snagging a Hyper 212 Evo. I had one on my i5 and it kept it below 60c at all times.
Thanks for the reply!
Mind if I ask what your CPU temps are under load?
Beautiful build! Absolute perfection.
How much of a difference does the front panel make when it comes to CPU temps?
Gaming on a 144hz monitor is so amazing. Even if you don't SEE the difference right off, you will without a doubt feel the difference. If you haven't experienced, I highly suggest it.
First off, I really like this build. It really looks like you put some time into the cable management.
Also just curious how much of a difference does taping off beside the Radiator? I have the same case and although it's nice to look at, the airflow causes my temperatures to be a bit high.
Does it make a noticeable difference?
I second this! I'm curious how they got them in there. Regardless, I don't even want to know how much of a pain it'd be to get them out lol.
