Im proud to say that i didnt have to strip the entire machine out. If i had the 601 case Be Quiet sent me, i would of lost a few knuckles. I would of come out looking like ive been to a pub brawl.

I Just made the memory clearence thank god but i had to shift the front fan right up to the top as far as it would go.

Sadly it hides the LED lighting effect of one of my module that im not too happy about.


All in all i rate the fitting process 8/10 made easier because i have a big case. Took me a while to fit as i had to split the install into 2 parts for gym then dinner

Its a little dusty and theres a little residue left from where a LED strip used to be stuck to the case.

With the side panel off its idling 32-35'c. Ambient temp is 22.3'c

I'll let it do 10mins of real bench then i'm reinstalling windows
Glad to see you join the dark side of cooling ;)

Never really realised how much noise an AIO makes,
That is one of the many reasons I stick to air. Temps be damned, safe range is safe range and OC happens out of the box these days so what the hell. Silence & Simplicity is king.

Side note, you'll probably notice you can ramp that beQuiet dual fan setup up pretty far before it becomes more audible than the rest of the rig. Worth experimenting a bit with, it can move a LOT of air.

Got airflow ? Why i see to many new case with ZERO airflow ?? No mesh panels anymore !




The 120mm is for the fresh air :)



I cant put a heatsink to my SSD due to the design of the connection on the motherbard so i opted fot a 40mm fan. From 41 degrees to 38 ( helped a bit )



Currently 8 fans are spinning in my Cooler Master case

Thank you @xtreemchaos I downsized since I never actually used all the space in the 550D. Seeing the Antec P101 Silent review made me post. It's a well built case and has served me for 7 years.

On a side note... i want to take a moment and shame in this abomination. not my proudest moment. my credit score felt this.

Hey thanks! I've never been much for RGB either, but after doing some commissions and getting my hands on some really nice RGB parts, I started feeling it more. There's so much more you can do than what is usually seen with all of the overdone madness that most people slap on a build and just call it a day. I think if you kinda think it through and get a little creative, you can get some universally nice results. You can have something that really pops and stands out in its own way. Like... there are builds that only an RGB lover can appreciate - it's all about the RGB... then, there are builds that are just good on thier own and happen to feature RGB accents. I look at it the same as light in visual art... it's usually used to bring out textures and lead the eye across the subject/frame. You're supposed to use it to bring out details in the build that already look good... it's a way of directing people's attention, not covering-up or superseding. The light itself is not the focal point. And on that note... there are A LOT of RGB parts that simply look bad. The RGB only somewhat masks it. If you turn the RGB off and it doesn't look good, it's never going to look great with it on.

Honestly though, I like your build better. It really looks clean... well except for that thing we won't talk about. :p

I've had my main laptop for one year now.

On June 23, 2018, I bought this barebones Eluktronics (Clevo) W650KK1 and all the components needed for it for a total of $574.
I originally put 8GB of DDR4-2133, a Pentium G4560, a 128GB ADATA SU800, and a 1TB HGST hard drive. It has a 4GB GTX 1050 Ti.

I can safely say this is one of the best laptops to get if you're a computer enthusiast with a smaller budget.
Since buying it, I've sidegraded the CPU to a Core i5-6500T, added an extra 4GB of memory, and upgraded the SSD to a 250GB Samsung 970 EVO (with an aftermarket heatsink).

It has been able to do everything I need it to. Any game I throw at it runs just fine. It even has enough power to emulate Wii U games (BotW runs at 40 FPS in Cemu).

In the future, I hope to upgrade it to 16GB of DDR4-2400 or 2666, replace the hard drive with an SSD, and maybe even upgrade the display to a 120Hz unit.
Hope it lasts me another few years.

finally upgraded my 550D to the new 175R.
Looks good, nice and clean.

I just redid the tim on my cpus and gpus with Thermalright TF8. Works good :rockout:

It is still amusing how small that 970 is.. That tiny thing packs a good punch, just cant oc it, or it throttles itself like crazy. But if I leave it alone it just does its thing. I can see why the first revision didn't last long in production. But still, if you just leave it alone, its pretty sweet for 150cnd..

I really liked the cooler, it was easy to install for the time. But the only thing I could never figure out is why they called it the Lion Square.... when it's round? haha Great performance though. Had the Q9550 at 3.6Ghz 24/7 and with the BioStar T45 I could get 475FSB for 4Ghz but it wasn't 100% stable in a few benchmarks, one of my favourite systems from the years gone by.

Spray it with stabilo colors
It's long gone now, wish I'd thought of that at the time as I am very good at spraying things I've (resprayed several motorbikes top-to-bottom that you'd never know they were done by a non-professional! haha).

Another bonus: I left the power-on cables hanging out of the case so you had to err "hot-wire" it to start it....

Bonus round 2: Athlon XP 2600+ system @ 2.34Ghz, pretty clean build for the time but the cooler put me off Coolermaster for years since the performance was so crap and the price so high.

bad picture...the window is reflecting everything and the light is poor but...this is my main rig.

That one stick of ram, right side near CPU lights up too...all those lights go on and off alternating surge type thing...

Love the setup, some awesome valve stages you have there with the near field reference monitors. Also spotted that bottle of whisky you have hidden in the back corner. Great setup.

Really envious as I used to have a sweet home studio setup but was burgled around 8-9 years ago so that's a long story with an unhappy ending.:mad:




Good to see another x58 user, we're almos an endangered species! :rockout:

Built this PC 1 year ago,at least most of it but its still getting some upgrades. 'GPU upgrade later this year,hopefully.'

I kinda like this case tho it does have certain issues when building,like the bottom fans get in the way and quite a pain in the ass once they are in.
Well at least I could hide cables behind them.
Also have to clean the glass panel fairly often due to the small space between the glass panel and the case so the dust gets in.

I'm okay with RGB as long as its set to 1 maybe 2 colors and its not overkill,I tend to change the color every few weeks but this is how I use it most of the time.

Hey thanks! I've never been much for RGB either, but after doing some commissions and getting my hands on some really nice RGB parts, I started feeling it more. There's so much more you can do than what is usually seen with all of the overdone madness that most people slap on a build and just call it a day. I think if you kinda think it through and get a little creative, you can get some universally nice results. You can have something that really pops and stands out in its own way. Like... there are builds that only an RGB lover can appreciate - it's all about the RGB... then, there are builds that are just good on thier own and happen to feature RGB accents. I look at it the same as light in visual art... it's usually used to bring out textures and lead the eye across the subject/frame. You're supposed to use it to bring out details in the build that already look good... it's a way of directing people's attention, not covering-up or superseding. The light itself is not the focal point. And on that note... there are A LOT of RGB parts that simply look bad. The RGB only somewhat masks it. If you turn the RGB off and it doesn't look good, it's never going to look great with it on.

Honestly though, I like your build better. It really looks clean... well except for that thing we won't talk about. :p
@robot zombie

That's the thing though, your build is very very sleek and subtle! That color hue you chose is spot on! I prefer yours. In fact, it was never my intention to build a white themed setup. I originally had plans to make it all black etc.. but the only available motherboard at the time was that Z170-Deluxe... and little by little other white components started showing up. Not sure how that happened haha. Fast forward 3 years later... I've somehow managed to build a Oreo inspired computer. It did grow on me eventually. Looking back, I would probably have gone with some subtle lights or something. Both of my brothers have crazy RGB and multi-monitored setups and while not my cup of tea, I can definitely have some appreciation for.... and as far as that thing that shall not be named, well, I don't know how that happened hahaha

@Sithaer

See!! Like your build too! I love the soft color at the bottom. I bet it looks amazing at night! Hopefully it's not distracting...
