Description

Development and Gaming Machine.

Went all out for most parts and had some drives I moved over from my last build. I'm never doing RGB lights again. The cabling was obnoxious and at the moment don't feel like it was worth doing it.

Case was pretty great to work with. Plenty of room and separating out the power supply in its own chamber in the back made it neater. Also made room for an additional 2 140MM fans at the bottom too.

Runs like a dream and haven't pushed it past 55C yet.

All in all great performing machine but wouldn't do again.

Update: Moved the 2nd fan back so you can see the ram and the fan draws air out of the cooler.

Was it hard to put ram under d15? I am building almost identical pc, i9 9900k with noctua and G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory just being worried if the there is enough height between mb and cooler.

The later pictures i put in had the cooler to the left so there should be space for the ram and cooler.

So many comments from people not appreciating the beauty of a Noctua D15, despite it's size and and large space occupied. I bought a Corsair H100i Aio a few years ago and it was a real regret. Being a quiet freak, the pump noise and the cheap corsair SP120 fans that came with it is just plain unbearable so I sold it. Got a Noctua D15 and it was the best choice ever - near silence even at full load.... no annoying pump noise, no trapped air bubble noise, no risk of leak. Good choice mate. How are the temps with the 9900k?

29-32C on idle. When gaming 55-60C.

how's dust filtration in that case? apparently there's a filter of some kind in the front (hopefully not the foam variant), but no mention of bottom or PSU intake

Hi, curious about an odd detail regarding the case - what's the distance between the feet? Trying to figure whether it'll fit on a 30 cm (approx 11.8 in) wide standalone shelf

Awesome build! How did you manage to install 4 RAMs with a big CPU cooler? There might be a space issue.

The case has enough room to allow the cpu fan to be placed higher.

Could have got a 2080ti at this range. Also could have had threw out the nvme and got a 2tb ssd unless you find yourself moving mass amounts of data.

Yeah I bought the 2080 first since it was on sale then I just went for the rest.

Didn't want to deal with it.

An AIO is just as easy as installing an air cooler and looks infinitely better

Yeah for the price of the Noctua you could have gotten a basic aio and not had to deal with RAM clearance issues. Right now you can't even see the Vengeance RGB pros which seems like a waste imo.

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.

Not to mention >16gb of RAM can't be utilized by Windows Home... needs to be Pro to exceed 16gb.

Windows 10 Home does support 128. System recognizes all 32gb.

:o really? I never knew that. Seems really arbitrary of windows to make you pay more just to use all your RAM.

This page claims windows 10 home supports up to 128gb of physical memory

There was a 16gb limit on windows 7
