Description

This was my first PC build ever. I use this build for gaming only. I am in the process of getting more modern games to better test out the graphics, but so far they look fantastic. The fan was slightly annoying to install but is extremely quiet. I thought my PC wasn't working when I first turned it on because I can't hear anything. Overall extremely happy I got everything to work and that it looks and feels great. Haven't gotten the monitor and keyboard yet, as I have some Hand-me-down ones that i'm using while I save money, or see a deal.

CPU Cooler

Thought my PC wasn't turning on because this fan is so damn quiet. Somewhat difficult to install if you've never done it before (like me) and the fan is very large, but overall good product. The fan is large enough that it most likely hide your RAM, so if you have RGB you want to see, get a smaller fan.

Memory

RGB looks amazing on them, despite my fan covering them somewhat. Works perfectly.

hello nice build

Can you share some cpu/gpu temps under load

Sure can do. It idles around 25 degrees C and after playing destiny 2 for a while it maxed at 48 and averaged mid to low 40's.

Whoops sorry this is for the CPU specifically, forgot to add the GPU, and will do that when I get home

Supposedly the DRP4 has very low ram clearance with that fan, but I keep seeing builds with RAM that should be too tall to fit. What's the secret? Did you have to move the fan higher to make it fit over the RAM?

I didnt have to do anything special to make the RAM fit, I simply installed it first. But it does just barely clear my RAM and almost completely overhangs it, even with one of the sticks in the farthest slot. Very little clearance after all that, but it fits, albeit snugly.

Check the max ram height for the DRP4. Think it's on the bequiet website, then check the RAM height for the modules you want. Installing RAM after installing the cooler is impossible too. However you can move the outside fan to the left side of the cooler and mount it there instead. I think the cooler still covers the first RAM slot though.

How did you get the 2 200mm fans to not be locked both on the same color? I have the same case but I can only have 1 solid color for both of them.

The funny thing is, I've had problems with the RGB for them. I can only change 1 fan color in any of coolermasters (or my motherboards) software. If I change one, it'll change the other to a seemingly random color. Mine are stuck on Red and an off Blue, but I can't really figure out a way to make them how I want.

Did you encounter any problems with CPU cooler and case? It's only a few milimeters. Or was it no problem at all. Thinking about the same cooler and case.

Nope, it fits in there pretty snugly, but there's still room. I had more trouble with the RAM, but just install the RAM first, because the CPU cooler fan overhangs, and has just a few millimeters of space over the RAM slots. Otherwise, not too bad.
