Whoops, sorry I didn't see this comment until just now. I was able to pull this off by running zip-ties through the screw holes.

Just one 200mm front fan, if I remember correctly.

You're all missing the point. OP didn't want a liquid cooler, and speaking from experience, the NH-D15 can perform practically just as well as any AIO.

As someone who has had a Core V21 for a few years now, I can say it is easily say it is a rock-solid case. This build reminds me a lot of the first build I had in that case. Ah, memories.

Looks like you have yourself a great machine! I hope it serves you well.

Cheers, CRS

P.S. - Not sure if you have noticed it, but one of the 140mm fans on either side of your case will overlap on the solid portion of the side panel. Not that this is a major issue, but it's something I noticed with my own case when I had fans on the sides.

Oh so custom, yet no temps. Tsk tsk.

Nice build! I would recommend flipping the bottom Nocuta fans so that they're intaking instead of exhausting. This should bring cooler temps for your GPU (although 74° C isn't bad).

This has got to be one of the cleanest open loop rigs I have ever seen. Amazingly well done mate.

Haha no, fans typically only use about 3W each, but I eventually didn't like the amount of noise they collectively made.

Zero, surprisingly enough. I used the Thermaltake FX Commander fan hub, which has eight fan headers on it.

This isn't my current configuration anymore. I only have 3 Noctua case fans now, and have swapped the H105 for a Noctua NH-D15S.

Do you have any intake fans? I can't see any on the front of your case. Otherwise, good looking build and nice parts list mate.

I personally worked on the Define Mini C, but from what I have read, it isn't the best case for airflow. This case has amazing airflow potential, so I would recommend this case.

That being said, the Define Mini C has a smaller footprint than the Core V21, so take that into consideration.

The fans at the top seem to be intakes (based on the orientation of the frame).

I don't believe they make the Core V21 anymore, seeing as how their replacement parts page doesn't have anything related to the V21 on there.

Sorry mate, they answered me whenever I asked. Best of luck!

If there is one thing you absolutely do not skimp on, it's the PSU. It's the thing that makes sure your build doesn't brick itself or catch on fire.

I know having a full connector doesn't mean it's there, but if you check MSI's website or even Newegg's specification tab, it says that there are 5 x16 lanes.

I also know about lane priority, but I sincerely doubt that that will be a problem considering OP has a 5960X. I totally agree that it should be in the top slot regardless, but that's up to OP.

Not sure what that has to do with what I said, but all five slots on that motherboard are x16 slots.

You should flip the rear-most CPU cooler fan around. Both of your CPU fans are blowing into each other. Other than that, great build!

  • 25 months ago

Not really sure why you would get a mATX motherboard for a mITX build. Not to mention the fact that it doesn't have on-board WiFi. You mention getting an i5, but that would have more cores, therefore provide more heat. The stock cooler is nothing impressive, but if the CPU isn't stressed out constantly (which it totally wouldn't if it's being used for a media center/plex server) and has air (which you can see the case has 3 fans installed), then it should have no issue cooling the CPU.

Well, this is an old version of my system. I only have 3 fans in my system now, and they're controlled by my motherboard.

But to answer your question, yes, they were running at max speed. The only way to control fan speeds is with PWM, and as far as I know, there isn't a way to control the RPM of 3-pin fans (even with a 4-pin PWN fan hub).

Comment reply on CRS10114's Completed Build: Ttammy - Completely Complete (I think)

Actually, they are plugged into a hub that has eight 3-pin fan headers that is powered by a SATA power connector from the PSU.

x16 vs x8 doesn't have any difference in performance. source

In terms of thermals, though, moving the card up would be beneficial.

My god, that is a lot of radiators... how is your CPU 50° C at idle and 70° C at load? I feel like that that is almost impossible with the sheer amount of inherent heat dissipation you've got going on.

Good lord do I love the orange/blue in your build. I have always wanted to make a build with that CPU cooler, but never found the parts to go with the copper. I suggest painting the red bits of your GPU shroud orange to really tie everything together.

Regardless, really nice build my dude.

You never know! If the Fiji flagship is around 250W, you can totally run that on your system. You'd be pushing 750-800W, but you'd be able to handle it for sure.

Incredibly solid build. If Vega is a proper flagship line, then this build will be fantastic.

Also, hey there, fellow Texan. I'm from Cypress, but now I live about an hour north of Dallas.

Anyyyyyyyyyyyyway, nice build. Cheers, mate.

Overkill PSU, but very clean build. Vega will (hopefully) make it one hell of an AMD powerhouse.

Why does everyone keep posting pictures of their vacuum cleaner? I mean, yes, it's a nice looking vacuum cleaner, but isn't this a site for PC builds?

Jokes aside, you've definitely got a good build. It's a shame that it is on your carpeted floor, but if it can't be helped, no one can blame you.

I get it that you want good looks on the PC...but for that money you could have done much better....

That's a contradictory statement. HugeIRL even said they wanted aesthetics over performance.

This build is solid as hell for 1440p. The only thing I would even consider changing is the CPU cooler, but that's a nitpick more than anything else.

You can bend your tubes upward. The connectors turn, and will stay fairly rigid enough to stay in their position. I sincerely doubt that they put any considerable force on the GPU.

I am fairly certain your CPU fan was in the correct orientation. The fans that were not correct were your case fans. The CPU fan (according to your pictures) was perfect where it was.

Yep. Zezainster has posted a version of this build before. I'll post the same thing I said last time:

The problem isn't necessarily with the main part of your system getting dust, it is with your PSU being choked for air and sucking in dust straight off of the carpet. Sure you've got the feet on the case, but since you have somewhat shaggy carpet, dust is bound to head straight for your PSU if it isn't already choked by the carpet.

You've obviously got a great system (and great looking, might I add), so I think it is worth it to get a thin box (like a keyboard box) or a piece of hardwood to lift it off of the ground at least a bit.

I see you still haven't gotten something to put under your case. Do you plan on doing that soon? I recommend you do. It would suck for something this cool to get messed up because of negligence.

Anyway, fantastic build.

Please swap your case fans around. You currently have your CPU cooler's fan pushing against the back fan (which is bringing air in unfiltered by the way), and your front case fans are exhausting into the front filter (which restricts the air).

Cheers

Nicely done! I really like the upgraded aesthetics. The ML fans are a lot better than the old ones (Sharkoon? I can't tell)
