Description

Built this rig to get back into the PC scene. Want to learn how to use Cinema4D and more content creation - photography and videography hobbies.

Also wanted a 4k 60fps gaming experience bundled in with it so this is what I ended up. I have just been gaming on xbox one for ages now so it was a huge step up.

As far as the build, it was my first time ever so I was stressing hard over possibly doing something wrong but 5 hours later I worriedly flicked the switch and it didn't explode hurray!

The biggest issue I ran into was the x62 cooler is just slightly too big to mount nicely up the top because of the RGB strip mounted in the case. Pretty annoying but with a bit of love it goes in only slightly pushing out the RGB strip. I also had to run to a local computer store a day later to get a USB header hub because this motherboard only had 2 headers - I needed 3. The cables supplied with the RMx 650 are good I just wish it included sata that wasn't on a 90' angle (made mounting the SSD in sight a pain in the ***.)

Besides messing with the cooler for ages the build experience was fun and super rewarding when I saw windows installed.

Is a $200 case and $120 cooler really worth it

When you've spent so much on everything else yes. Why have a crap looking low quality case for a $3K pc? lol

It could definitely use a bit more polish. Haven't had too many issues so far, just doesn't like getting reset.

Love it. But why did you mount your radiator on the top and not in the front?

I was really struggling to get it to fit anywhere nicely, messed around for ages with it so when I finally got it to fit in one place I wasn’t moving it haha

Would you still recommend an x62 cooler with this case? I have one all spec'd out and am ready to pull the trigger... but your commends about it concerned me a little.

I would probably go the x52. The x62 is the same width as the x42 which is what I had a lot of trouble fitting in.

Yes. I did it without any issues on top of the case.

Do you ever experience any CPU Bottlenecking?

Nothing from what I’ve seen, overclocked to 4.8Ghz now doesn’t get hotter than mid to high 60’s and handled everything I’ve thrown at it easily.

Cmon man if you are gonna put the cash into a cooler at least get the 240mm one.

Might upgrade later but I’m running at 4k 60fps ultra or epic on fortnite and doom without any issues. Overclocked to 4.7+GHz so don’t really need it.

Yes but the bang for buck is not at the single rad for NZXTs Kraken. Although I approve of your choice of cooler, I'm just saying that you could have spent a little more for nearly twice the performance.

Yeah I completely agree, also would’ve made mounting the thing a hell of a lot easier. Put it on being a pc build noob. Haha if I did it again I’d definitely soend the extra money on it.

x62 was fine on mine. Take the top and bracket out, then rad on the top part of bracket with bracket in middle, then fans next,then re insert the bracket with the sandwiched rad you are good to go.
