Just monitor your temps and speeds in game for a week or so, then flip the fans and compare. Don’t listen to random people on the internet without validating that information for yourself. I’m just speaking from what’s the “norm” and what I’ve learned from my build
Theoretically yes, you will now be pushing case air through the radiator. In my experience though (I have same cooler) CPU temps won’t change much, maybe increase a few degrees Celsius. You’re still likely running temps plenty cool enough to prevent any decrease in CPU performance. However your GPU temps will benefit, and being that it’s strictly air cooled and GPUs like to run hot anyway, potentially improve performance. That’s what happened in my case, literally. CPU didn’t change, GPU benefited in both temps and performance.
So I wont question if intentional, as I have ran some "unconventional" fan configurations. But seeing that its your first build, figured I would share some insight in case. TYPICALLY you would want to flip both the top and bottom fans, bring in from the bottom and exhaust through the top. In my experience the GPU will run hotter than the CPU with an AIO, so feed it cool air and let the CPU cool with case air.
It is not, it was built for someone. Plus, the pricing of components is very inaccurate. This build was likely $1400-1500
Yeah, and I did not buy it so I have no idea what he actually paid for the components. Probably somewhere around $1400-1500
Thanks, cable management and quality components go a long way!
I like the black and orange, not very common. Clean loop and cables too
I like this case, nice build
If the color scheme fits your taste, it is a pretty good value when you can find the parts priced right
I am digging the slight contoured bends, different
This loop is so clean, I love it. Simple lines, I even like the matte black tubes. The reservoir mounting looks great with the lines passing through the back end of the chassis.
microcenter but they are the inland extensions
cue the jazz
Those extensions are not very friendly on the back end, but look good once you get them sorted
Had to Google the warp core, I now have a new appreciation for this build.
Not often you find a unique build on here, that copper plating tho
I like the wood, good thing you destroyed the OE cover
Mine has made a similar noise when going from its back to upright. Other than that it’s near silent under normal conditions, maybe try adjusting pump speed in icue but it shouldn’t be noisy. I’ve used 4 different Corsair coolers on various builds and have never had pump noise like that.
This was built as a gift but I can certainly build and sell you a pc if that’s what you’re asking
Please pet the cat in my honor
More like RWB, am I right!? Anyone?
Yeah as long as you don't need them to have any super tight bends, they are a little stiff. Look at my early photos vs new, you can see the difference in the cables and how much better they look. Difficult to beat them for the price, there are better options but you will spend 2-3 times as much. I also used them in "RGBlue" if you look at my other builds, "Dont kill my Vybe" is cable mod basics.
I use braided extensions for all my builds, prefer the plastic braid vs cloth. Plastic extensions keep their shape significantly better and are usually larger in diameter. Other than that I think a good case is key, NZXT cases have awesome cable management. PSU install is last, only feed whats necessary into the case, everything else tuck out of sight. Zip ties can also be your friend for organizing whats being hidden.
Thanks, I think it turned out nice too. Wasn't sure about the case at first but it was easy to build in, has decent cable management and the fan hub made life very easy.
Yeah he was happy, he had tinkered with computers before so I let him do the bulk of the build. I just guided and did the wiring at the end, he was all smiles when we finished and it powered on first try lol
Thank you! It has definitely improved over time, good cable management is HUGE. I don't game a ton, but it does handle whatever I throw at it quite well.
Yup, this is it chief. One of the best setup/builds I have seen on here in a while.
No problem, all your major components should include everything you need to get the PC up and running.
It comes with pre applied paste, which I used. I considered buying Thermal Grizzly to use as an alternative, but Amazon was sold out at the time. No complaints with what was provided, I sit around 50-55c under load.
Clean build and setup, nice work
I started way late, like binge watched every season during the finale season late. Personally I wish there was more night king, such a bad a** character! Seriously, when he came out of the sky on that dragon I about came off my couch. I even knew it was coming, and it was still an incredible scene.
I wouldn't change it then, it is honestly what caught my eye and made me view the build. As someone who works on a computer, and has nothing to do 7 hours a day, I spend a lot of time on PCPP. Don't think I have ever seen someone make an OE cooler look as if it belongs lol
Very nice, the case fans look fantastic with the OE Ryzen cooler.
I love just about any clear liquid loop, so thumbs up from me. She is a beaut, and that distro plate is cleeeaaaan!
Normally I don't question what I see on posts, but being that temps are hot (pun intended) on my mind, is your CPU not running hot? 87C seems very high, even under load. I understand that I am running different hardware, but I use a very similar cooler and sit around 55C under load. My CPU, according to PCPP, should put off more heat. Curious to see what others think, maybe someone with a 3rd gen Ryzen chip can chime in.
GoT was alright but that season 7 finale was LIIIIIIT
My exact thought, its hilarious
Quality stuff. Fortunately for me, my cats do NOT climb on top of my PC. However, my setup could use more beer. CHEERS
That GPU is so attractive mounted upright
This is awesome, hide those bills!
I'm not gonna lie, I clicked because of the cat. However, the build/setup is clean and the beer adds a nice touch. This post speaks to me on a spiritual level.
I must say, I enjoy a Titanium build
If you ain't forst, you're last.
Oh you fancy, huh
Nice forst build, even better ghost
*exclusively cooled by Corsair
Super clean setup, nice job
There are not many locations, but luckily I have one 40 minutes away. CPU/motherboard bundles are really the only big bonus though, everything else is actually marked up it seems. They do price match, so the markup is not an issue. Convenience is huge, nice to have the ability to shop a full spectrum of products in stock.
