Cpu is overclocked to 4.05ghz at 1.35v

Ram is at 3200mhz at 1.35v

Gpu boosted to 2000ghz out of the box and overclocked to 2050ghz

Cpu temp under load is 58c

Gpu temp under load is 48c

But when does a chain of photos not end with a potato corresponding with said pictures?

love it, this is what i planned to do for my ryzen build but since there was no mini itx mobos at launch i had to settle for atx.

Thanks for the Banana ruler, I know I can fit that GPU in my case now, cheers man.

Fair warning, if using a rad on front install it first. You'll then need to put the gpu in at an angle to get it in. There was some eh...scraping of the gpu against the rad

really good looking and clean

Where was the cpu radiator placed? Can't seem to spot it.

  • 30 months ago

Placed it on the front panel. The gpu is right up touching the radiator haha

Nice. I'm also working on a ftw3 hybrid build but I don't think I'll be able to front mount the radiator given the amount of clearance left. Thanks for posting, this gives me a better visualization for when I gather the remaining parts.

Great build! This looks awesome. Thanks for posting the temps. I'm dealing with some heat in my Fractal case and am thinking about switching it up a bit. Are the pumps loud compared to air cooled stuff?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

the pumps are a tad loud, but that being said i believe i hear them more because the fan speeds are quite low and quiet compared to an air cooled build.

Planning a near identical build (except with M.2) and wondering what your airflow is like. Just the two fans on front rad and one on GPU rad or do you have two up top as well?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah just the two fans on the front and the one at the back. Temps are really good but not sure how much airflow goes through the case.

Personally would have gone with a Gigabyte B350N, because Biostar's OC options in UEFI are very lackluster, but HOLY CRAP, that GPU just barely fit!

  • 30 months ago

The gigabyte has a terrible layout for a itx board imo. That being said once you know the bios layout overclocking on the biostar board is fairly easy and reliable if you know what you're doing.

To be fair, the Nano S still makes cable management doable with the Gigabyte board. It's only a problem if you use a Node 202 or 304.

How's your cooling/noise? I'm working on a similar build with a Nano and a reggie 1080 Hybrid, but with Intel 6th gen. Quiet is priority. Didn't know the Kraken would fit with the hybrid 1080 until now, so thanks already.

Cooling is pretty great and i have posted the temps in this thread already. It's just a tad noisy if there is no other noise in the room but other then that it is quieter then my last air cooled build.

I have the same case, mobo, cooler, and ram. I clocked my cooler clockwise to clear the ram. Are you not hitting the ram with your cooler tubes? Also, what temps are you seeing with your cpu and gpu? I have a Gigabyte 1080 that's running hot.

  • 30 months ago

cooler tubes are quite snug against the ram but no issues with clearance. also i posted the temps already in the thread with the oc'd results.

What bios are you running to do your OC? When I tried 6.23 the CPU ratio is grayed out. In windows on 6.23 the multiplier on some boots goes to 5.5x. If you're on 4.13? Can you post your OC settings? I can't figure it out.

That looks like an insanely tight fit between the GPU and the CPU rad. Is there any physical contact or scraping going on or is there enough clearance and it just looks like that?

(Also, I have to ask, but are you putting the rad fans inside the front cover, using slim fans, or doing something else that would alter the profile of the radiator?)

  • 29 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah there is contact on the edge of the rad and the fans are mounted on the inside of the front cover. No slim fans just the stock fans that came with the cpu cooler

  • 29 months ago

Thanks for the answer. I'm still confused on the front cover issue because I can't wording, though, so I'll phrase it differently:

In the Nano S there is the option to mount the front fans outside of the "case" and inside the front cover thing that you snap on to make it look like it has a solid front. If you were putting your fans inside the front cover, it would go fans | front panel (not the very front panel of the case, the thing inside of that which you screw the fans into) | radiator, whereas if you weren't it would go front panel | fans | radiator. Which is it?

Lol we have nearly twin builds. I just chose intel over amd and define s over nano. Do you want to dock bro?

**** yea! You got a turtle neck or crew neck? I hope you follow. I personally had a crew neck since about 2 days old.

well, you could say that this build it's a-MEI-zing, i've been frozen and without speech

Did you have to do anything to get the Cpu Radiator and Graphics Card to fit or did you just get lucky?

Hey, you seem to be pretty active in answering questions, so I have one of my own: I'm thinking of buying a FTW3 hybrid but I would want to replace the crappy EVGA fan with a Noctua, probably F12 PWM. I can't get a reliable answer out of EVGA as to whether fans can be replaced or what the pinout on the fan header is. Could you tell me?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

You can indeed swap the fan out if wanted. In fact you can even connect the fan to the motherboard if you wanted a better fan curve. I'm at work right now but i'm more then happy to check the pin header when i get home.

  • 30 months ago
  • 2 points

That would be A+. Could you just try plugging one of your normal 3- or 4-pin case fans into it and say if that works?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Hey just letting you know that any and all fans will work if you plug them into either the gpu or motherboard.

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Amazing! Just to clarify, does that mean they actually turn on and spin or did you just try plugging them in?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah they turn on and spin haha. But rgb fans will not work if plugged into the gpu, they will have to be plugged into a motherboard socket.

Why does it feel like you coulda put some money elsewhere to get a better cpu ;)

  • 25 months ago

For 1440p you dont need a crazy powerful cpu as most of the work is being done by the gpu. But either way the 1600x is more then enough for my needs

The 165hz? It sure is. She is quite a beauty and great value compared to the other offerings for the same specs.

Loving it. My old monitor was a 1920 by 1200 dell office thing i got for 20 dollars. Needless to say the agon is a much better improvement.
