What monitors do you use? Love the look of them in that configuration!
What is your keyboard I love the look of it!
Thanks! Anne Pro
Thank you very much!
LOL Your Username Picture
finally someone who gets the joke thanks
What are your monitors?
I have the same parts as you. How did you fit the LL120 fans at the bottom without hitting the USB 3.0 header?
Bottom fans should be set as intakes. Counterproductive to the GPU fans. Probably see big temp decrease on the card.
Nope, hybrid GPU. Doesn't even use the single fan that the GPU has. Temps in the mid 50's under load
Wrong, hybrid GPU. Does use the single fan that the GPU has. Ever heard of VRAM Heatsink?... The fan is there for that specific purpose. The software is there so that you can custom curve both VRAM and Radiator fans.
It's kinda hard to tell when your PC pictures are from 4 feet away and you only have 3 of them. I came here to say what he said
Yeah seems more like a setup showoff then a pc build show off imo, nice build tho.
Also if the bottom were intakes and I had a air cooled card the fans on the bottom of the card would be exhausting and you'd want to suck that hot air our instead of blowing air into each other.
Nope, not how it works. GPU Coolers blow air onto the heatsink, not off of it.
I love that case. great build
How did you manage to get those bottom fans in without crushing your usb3 cable?
How did you mount your rads? I can't tell because it's way too dark and I was looking for an example.
+1 Nice colour choice. What do u stream?... Cause that seems to be a streaming setup.
Thanks! I did youtube for a while (K1LO Gaming) but honestly gave it up because with the time I do have, I'd rather just be playing games than making videos about games haha. I should start streaming tho.
If u have the time. Y not?
Oh my that is one clean setup. +1
hey dude, I saw you on randomfrankp's episode. Awesome setup, you inspired me to get a vertical monitor like you.... thanks! +1 on the awesome build.
Just checked out your youtube channel, your setup video does a whole lot more justice than the pictures do! +1!
How did u connect the 3 pin rgb fan if that motherboard doesnt have any rgb headers at all
You don't plug fans into rgb headers. You plug fans into fan headers. Lol.
lighting node pros/commander pros to the usb 2.0 on the board most likely. currently doing the same for my build (or will do same rather) deciding between itx board and matx board
+1 for style.
Can you say what desk you have ? Mine right now is a bit tight for space with 2 monitors/ speakers. Super clean build, the lighting looks really good.

Sick setup. Love your use of the RGB. The blue and green makes the build stand out compared to the million other RGB builds out there.
I was just wondering if there is a downside to smaller tower builds.
Also any reason you have two vertical monitors?
Air flow and thermals can be more of a challenge in a smaller build but I just love when everything is nice and tidy :)
As for the port monitors I like them because it reduces the horizontal landscape so you turn your head less and it's nice for web browsing, documents, etc. I used to think it was just for programers but definitely not the case
All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy!! For the 5% work ;)
Beautiful build and beautiful setup! Love the monitor config
Haha well I just need to convince my manager I'm more effective working from home... Although I dunno if that would be true with games a click away :P
Very nice build, i love how the screens all line up the top edge, soothes my OCD
what desk are you using, or how did you set up the desk?
Edit: you monster, fix your window blinds!
LOL! Your attention to detail is impressive :)
Ikea desk: Eckbacken top, capita legs, alex drawers
nice man love the color scheme and the build overall well done!
Now that is some consistent cw.
Am I gonna feel dumb for asking, cw?
I'm looking for a new desk and I really like this one you have set up. Looks awesome! I was just wondering if you used some sort of support for the middle of the desk?
yes, I have an olov leg in the middle
What chair is that?
Where did you get that table top? Those white desk things are from ikea and I really like that setup.

This is so beautiful, may I ask what the monitor in the middle is called?
Nice build! I have the same gpu and cpu cooler and looking into getting this case. How exactly do you have the radiators mounted? Any chance you can upload a well lit picture of inside the case? Thanks in advance!
https://imgur.com/a/2wSGgTd honestly it was a beast figuring out how to get it all in there. I mounted the GPU rad to the top screw holes of the bottom fan in the front because without push/pull on the GPU rad my temps were too high. The Kraken is mounted by only two screws (the mounts for the rear top fan using the holes closer to the front of the case). It's really frustrating because there's adequate room for everything I want, it's just the mounting placements on the case itself are limited.
Thank you very much for the reply! That is a really tight fit!
Are those the corsair LL fans? If so, how did you managed to get two static colors for it?
Beautiful case for RGB builds. +1
First of all sick setup, it looks super nice. I was wondering what kind of monitors did you use?
Well done. Cheers from Minneapolis.
Technically not your FIRST mATX build, but a good one none the less. I remember you having an air 240, but you inspired me to get a 280x, nice :p
Haha I never had an air 240. Came from the phanteks p400 before this :) glad I've inspired you tho!
What wallpaper/widget thing is that that you are using, it's bretty nice. +1
Wallpaper engine and Rainmeter
Shot in the dark because it looks like you may not be answering questions anymore....but would you be willing to share the "theme" or "skin" you're using?
don't know if you are still answering comments but how does the mobo 24 pin cable look coming out of the mobo and into the case grommet since it is a little high up, can you post a picture of the pc dead on with like your phone flash on or something so I can see the details, THX love the build
ahh you get me...I wish the grommet was higher :( https://imgur.com/a/XgqyOYH
It's so dumb that there isn't a second grommet up high like the second one if you do mini itx mobo
Do those capita legs hold up well when you're at your desk? Like, they don't slide around or anything? I was thinking of doing something similar on top of cabinets with a countertop and seeing how close the legs are to the edges causes me a great deal of anxiety..
I have 3M double sided tape pads between the feet and the drawers and it's quite secure
Holy crap this is probably my favorite setup on PCPP. Insanely good job +1
Are the LL fans on the radiator affecting performance at all? I plan to stick some on my AIO as well.
Why aren't your bottom fans exhausting cool air into your GPU?
Cuz it made a 1-2C difference and so personally I think the better aesthetic is worth it
Dang what a clean build +1
But how did you change the color of you homescreen to match the pc? Did you just change the homescreen in between pics or is their software that allows you to do this?
wallpaper engine on steam
Beautiful setup all around. Sooo clean!! Love the colors and the spot-on desk arrangement. Makes me want to redecorate my home office, lol.
Hi! What monitors do you run? Amazing build. Absolutely gorgeous!
Very Nice Build
I just want to know what are the fans that you use on teh top of the case?
welp, just found my new case
+1 i can only dream of having this level aethetic and clean wiring
how did you do the lighting behind the desk
Crazy setup, I was just wondering how many fans did the case come with. Some people have said two and on pcpartpicker it shows one in the picture. Thanks
it comes with 2, 1 in front, another on top for exhaust
Nice set up ! I have a question and a request....im going to be getting a ftw3 hybrid, but I was wondering how much flexability I will have with the tubes in my define mini c with a cooler height limitation of 172mm. Your case has a cpu cooler height limitation of 150mm...
Question: how flexable are the tubes ? is it pusshing on the panel with much force ?
Request: could you take a picture with plenty of lighting so that I can see the inside.
My tubes will be pointing down and with the panel closed, I just hope its not pusshing the gpu downards from the pressure from the panel.
Awesome. Can you share a picture of how you got the 1080ti hybrid tubing routed? I have the same GPU and want to get this case. Any help is appreciated.
what are those monitors? theyre gorgeous!!! also amazing job on the PC, Im using the same case and was looking for inspiration and yours is just amazing!
What an amazing setup, very nice!
How did you made it with the wallpaper?
How'd you get those fans to fit in the bottom with a micro ATX motherboard? I was told that with micro ATX boards, you can't fit fans in the bottom. What are the temps like? Looking to build the same system, but with a Ryzen chip, DeepCool Castle 280, and a RTX 2080ti. Two 140 fans in front. Two 140's in the top, and two 140's in the bottom.
140s have issues going on bottom (or rather tight for mitx), 120s should be fine
where did you place the radiators? I can't quite make it out on the pictures. Is the one from the hybrid graphics card up top in the rear and the x52 in front? how did you manage to fit 2 fans in the bottom? thanks ^
https://imgur.com/a/XgqyOYH he posted this imgur link a bit back. its up in comments as well
I'm confused, did you mount your CPU radiator to the front 120s, and the hybrid to the top 120?
I believe he mounted he CPU radiator to the top and then mounted the GPU radiator to one of the front LL120s.
I am also trying to figure this out because I plan to have the same configuration and this is the only build on this site, but the pictures are too dark.
https://imgur.com/a/XgqyOYH hope this helps, he posted this a bit back when another user asked about radiator
https://imgur.com/a/2wSGgTd (showing connections)
I see now, there's really no need to do a push/pull on the GPU radiator mount. Thank You!
What monitors did you use??
Can you please tell me which side monitors you are using?
Where can I find that desk?
its an ikea desk, scroll up a bit in the comments and he has answered it a couple times
What mouse are you using?
i believe its a logitech g703 white
really nice build! can i ask where you got your desk from? im looking for it. im guessing mixture of ikea?
its an ikea desk, he mentions exact model name as well as drawers they are mounted on a bit up in the comments
Great 280X build, really like your 2 color theme.
Question how did you get your corsair LL120's front fans to 2 show different static colors inner hub and outer ring? My understanding from searching is that this isn't possible in the iCue software. It's been driving me crazy as I want to do the same.
you can have 2 static colors on icue, just control drag the rgb zones. do the outer ring first then do the inner ring
As soon as I saw this build I had to take a closer look! It looks AMAZING!!! Also, what do you think of the ram, I am thinking of purchasing it for my first build
Really clean build+1000000000000000000000
how did u get the tinted glass on the white case
He didn't. He just took bad pictures in the dark trying to show us the build and was more focus on his corner desk setup.
As nice as your setup looks overall, you forgot the most important part in this (pcpartpicker) site... Showing inside the case, the image it's dark can't see how you arranged the hardware, especially for those with the EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 Hybrid.
Awesome build! I just purchased this case, Seeing your build locked in my decision and i'm really looking forward to building a system in it. one question though which is off topic. where did you buy your desk at? lol
Is the default 280X tinted or is this custom?
The default 280X RGB is tinted. I believe that the non-RGB variant is not tinted but don't quote me on that.
