Inwin A1 itx case
SInce maximus x board doesn't have a vrm temp sensor I can't tell you the exact temperature I'm getting but I haven't had any issues overclocking my 9900k at 5.0ghz 1.28v and zero throttling whatsoever but keep in mind that I'm running a monoblock which probably helps a lot with vrm cooling.
I've seen people running 9900k at 5.0ghz on maximus x on a good air flow setup. I think you will be fine as long as there's a decent airflow inside the case. In worst case scenario you can add a 92mm fan to cool your vrm. :)
Yeah that's possible.
Anthracite Gray on evolv x matches almost perfectly with my alienware aw3418dw monitor. If you wanna color match with your monitor I'd definitely go with AG.
I think someone mentioned this before but I didn't have any problems with my riser mount. Have you tried to contact phanteks? In my experience with their customer service my first revolt x psu was faulty and they sent me a new one pretty quick with a return label to return the old unit.
Nicely done. I've never seen this case before but it goes really well with your whole setup. +1
How's airflow and cpu/gpu temps with just a single 120mm intake and 90mm exhaust fan? I see you mentioned 90c on 2700x but is it running at stock speed? I like the aesthetic of both inwin 901 and 909 cases but their limited airflow design stops me from purchasing one (if I can even find one at a decent price. haha)
Good looking setup tho!
I find this case very attractive. I love your custom loop work, too. Very nicely done, man.
Yea, I was very surprised by gpu temp. When this same 1080ti was in my corsair 570x and evolv x case it ran from 72c(single) to 83c(in sli) max temperature.
I think this is my favorite itx case besides phanteks evolv itx case. But I'd wait for the new version to come out since It will come with a gold rated 650w psu instead of bronze rated 600w one.
I disassembled first version of my dual system to convert it to a watercooled pc and I swapped out some of the components while in it. But yeah ver.2.0 is up and running. :D
Well, I haven't had time to overclock and stress test it yet but just enabling PBO and ram XMP profile I was seeing low 40s in idle and high 50s to low 60s when playing PUBG for 30 min.
Surprisingly, 1080ti ran very cool idling at 32c and max temp. of 60c thanks to the bottom mounted fans directly pushing fresh air into it. BTW, when I had this card in my other ATX builds I saw anywhere from 72c~83c max temperature.
what did I tear apart?? :S
Thank you sir!
Thanks! Yea I really like this case. I was a bit disappointed when they announced the new version for 2019 because my return period was already up but other than a mediocre bronze 600w psu this is a really well built case.
That's what I use it for everyday. xD
Unfortunately, you can't buy this case without the PSU. Although you can remove it and change it to a different PSU by doing so you will lose its wireless charging feature.
Hey, that's a pretty good idea. xD
Haha. It's actually a $7500 PC and $4800 racing sim. But yeah things got expensive pretty fast... xD
Thanks man. I appreciate it!
You need to purchase Phanteks ITX Upgrade Kit which costs about $15 if you want to mount the second system on top of the case.
Yes, each system can be turned on and off separately no problem.
If you use Phanteks revolt X power supply, it has two sets of 24pin and 4+4pin connectors for 2 systems which can be turned on and off separately. But everything else such as pci-e, sata, and molex cables are shared meaning even if one system is on, everything that's powered by pci-e, sata, and molex cables (even if it's connected to the other system) will turn on too.
In my case, I hooked up all of my case fans to my corsair commander pro (powered by sata) so all case fans as well as pump will turn on and run no matter which system is turned on. One thing to note is because commander pro is connected to my main atx motherboard, I won't be able to control fan speed if only itx system is turned on, fans will run at default speed. But I usually have my main system and corsair icue program idling so fans get PWM signal.
There are plenty of crazier builds on PCPP. xD
I think both thrustmaster and logitech are good wheels to start with, I just wish I had chance to try fanatec before I made my decision. haha
Unicorn barf. HAHA xD
That's a weird error message but I didn't have an issue adding to my list.
What do you want to know about it? :)
Royal rams are so best looking rams period. I just wish they were a bit cheaper. Haha
Fanatec is the way to go. I wish I got it in the first place instead of thrustmasters.
This is amazing. I love the color combo. nicely done!
Wow, thanks man. I turned off all of other lights except that red led and I was getting annoyed TBH. haha
PC costed about 6k.
Yup, that's what I'm doing.
I just can't help myself buying gpus when new models come out. haha
Haha. Thanks alot, man.
Each system works independently.
I don't think that's possible since I don't think there is a sata splitter cable but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
Yes it was. I'm very thankful this case has ssd mount covers which hide most of the cables in the back side panel.
Phanteks sells dual system kit for this case which includes an itx bracket so you can mount itx mb on top of the case and a 600mm riser cable for its gpu.
Two systems work independently and the itx system is connected to my sim racing rig which is its main role but can also be used for anything else.
I agree. Although iCue can be a bit buggy at times...
Yeah, I know some people who were going with normal psu+phanteks splitter for their dual system builds but in my case there was no way to fist that splitter inside psu shroud because it is already fully populated with cables.
Amazing build. It's a beautiful and well thought out build. +1
yup, it's a perfect setup for that.
I currently own 5 gaming pc's and I'm sad to realized that they are all useless because I can't use them side bye side. :( Thanks for your comment, buddy.
Surprisingly 2080ti doesn't get affected too much when both systems are turned on and under load, it stays under 76c. On the other hand, two 1080ti's get pretty toasty around 82c or so if both systems are doing work.
When I play games with just atx system turned on, 1080ti's temps stay around 73c.
Yup, that was one of the plans I had in mind. I can add a capture card in main system and use it as a streaming pc while playing games on itx system. It will happens sometime in the future, I'm just being so lazy ATM. haha Thanks!
