Description

So, I decided to give my old set-up ( which wasn't that old :/ ) an update with some new parts. I decided to get some new stuff after a couple of good sporting results, which I used the prize money to purchase them with.

I hope you enjoy

Hey nice build mate!

I'm looking at buying the Asus Strix gtx1080 OC (O8G) like yours but have read a tonne of bad reviews about their fans and defecting. They're apparently very loud and either spin like crazy and at different speeds or not at all :/

Any news on how yours is going?

TIA :)

Hi, I haven't had any issues yet with any of the cards. I believe they both use the same cooler and fans. I usually control them manually with precisionX when gaming however when idle the fans never spin!

Cheers for replying :)

It must have been a bad batch or driver update at the time when people started posting the bad reviews I read recently.

Where did you get those mod cables for the source?

I am looking into purchasing this case and I am also getting a H115i cooler.

I love your setup, but was slightly concerned about airflow throughout the case. I was thinking I would setup a push pull airflow for the front rad and then install 2 or 3 fans on the top and 1 at the back.

Do you ever have any temperature issues? I have seen people with this case stating that they have had problems getting the hot air out of the case.

Thanks!!

Hi, im really sorry that I have only just seen this! I don't check here that often. I have the h115i in push pull with ml140 fans set at a relativley low rpm, and I do not see the cpu go over 55 degrees at 4.6ghz @ 1.22v . I currently have my fans set up as you intended and have no issues regarding temps. They are all controlled via software too. I have taped up the gap between the top of the radiator and the top of the case, as this seemed to improve airflow to the radiator from the front.

I have been thinking of putting the rear fan as an intake though, as I have quite a bit of dust build up inside and fancied trying something new!

Thanks!

i agree, but it sounds as though most of the money put in was from a prize.
