One of the best I have seen in a while. Very well done.
Thanks a lot Tigger. That means a lot. It was a project, but it came out really really well. I have some better photos but they're still on the camera, and i'm switching it up a bit to help with airflow next week so i'll upload some more when i get it off my desk

I started looking into your case more...http://www.lian-li.com/pc-o11-dynamic/ and I have to say it is really interesting. I have never seen that case. I just watched there video on that site about how the glass has no screw holes in it... completely tooless. (spelling).

My next build, I want a mid size board because I want a smaller case. You case is very wide.. but it makes the build clean and shorter in height.
It is very interesting real estate. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811112583

3 fans were set at DC mode in the BIOS while they can run PWM, just set them at PWM mode, I need to do some more fan tuning with Asus AI Suite.

I don't use the ASUS Ai because there was a recent ASUS Auto update hack recently. IF that ASUS AI suite has that.. ditch it.

I would move the noctua fans to the front of the case. Those are (if not the best) fans for quiet sound.

LOL I am planing on SSD or M2 not sure.
970 M.2 for the win.

Asus AI Suite doesn't have an "updater" as far as I know, I didn't install any other Asus software.

I have 1 120mm + 1 140mm Be-Quiet fan in front of the case, they are controlled by the case fan controller, have them at an almost inaudible medium speed running.

It was quite the case to build in. What amazes me though is how i could cram a 60mm thick EK XE 360 on the top, and an EK PE 360 40mm radiator on the side, still get enouch fans in there and cool both the CPU and GPU adequately. CPU runs hot regardless(9900k) but at 5.1 it hits about 78-80 under water in non avx stress. GPU doesn't break 40c @ 2100/8000 with voltage and power sliders maxed. I have to say i'm super happy with it.

The glass front and side sell it for me, but i'm considering whether getting the pc-011 air and water cooling in that so i can get the 3 120mm intake fans on the front. DECISIONS!!!

Changed opamps on my soundcard from LME49720HA+LME49710HA combo to LME49720HA+LT1028. The PCM1794 datasheet recommends using LT1028 for its low noise characteristics, I bought several opamps years ago but I didn't have the opportunity to test it. The solder blob is removal of coupling capacitor that was not supposed to be there in the datasheets and I made a mess removing the traces hence the wire. Bypassing the caps removes the 'bass boost' and clears up the audio a little bit.

I tested the new combo using Sennheiser HD555 modded to HD595 (foam removal) and directly plugged to line out via RCA adapters
s2.jpg


I've listened for an hour straight without any fatigue, before its very fatiguing. The high especially pierced my ears. This new combo is excellent! I thought of buying new headphones because it sounds so cold and piercing before, it looks like its just need a good synergy between opamps and headphones. My speakers also sounds great with this combo.

Work PC on the right and my main gaming rig on the left, while I dampen down the constant humming of the HDDs. In the end I removed the drive cage brackets and refitted them with small strips of rubber tape where the brackets touch the case. I then removed the four round, plastic feet and placed rubber washers between them and the case bottom. Zero humming or vibration now.

Not my PC, but a family friend had their system die and needed it fixed.

It was originally an FX 8320 system with a Gigabyte motherboard (one or both of those components were dead). It had a 120mm Corsair AIO (not sure what model), the motherboard was "screwed in" with the wrong screws. It was kind of a mess.

I sent them a parts list with a 200GE, 8GB of DDR4-2666, and an ASRock B450 motherboard. They got the parts, and my dad and I assembled it. Used new screws, redid cable management, redid the fan setup.

I reused their old case, PSU, GPU and SSD.

I think it turned out pretty well. It runs very cool and quiet and the CPU stays below 50C under load.

Software Windows 7/10
Not my PC, but a family friend had their system die and needed it fixed.

It was originally an FX 8320 system with a Gigabyte motherboard (one or both of those components were dead). It had a 120mm Corsair AIO (not sure what model), the motherboard was "screwed in" with the wrong screws. It was kind of a mess.

I sent them a parts list with a 200GE, 8GB of DDR4-2666, and an ASRock B450 motherboard. They got the parts, and my dad and I assembled it. Used new screws, redid cable management, redid the fan setup.

I reused their old case, PSU, GPU and SSD.

I think it turned out pretty well. It runs very cool and quiet and the CPU stays below 50C under load.
Looks great!
I would also clean it.
The front needs to come off and the fans removed and cleaned, and the filters cleaned. The power supply shroud is dirty too which means that PS probably needs blowing/vacuuming out.
Just a FYI, Harbor Freight sells rivet gun with rivets for like $12 ' ish .
You can drill out the rivets on that power supply shroud to completely remove it if it is easier.

I just bought 5 corsair 140mm AF fans for £30, I've 3 on the top, and one on the back. Are AF's pretty quiet on 100%?

bargain! :D probably not quiet at 100%, but you can set the fans curves up to whatever you want, they'll shift a lot of air at full chat!

If it's PWM can set fans curves.
