This build is amazing! I love the silence it brings, The GPU by default runs at 0 RPM until something like 50 or so degrees C. but I have it set to 25% at the very least. STILL super silent!
Updated pics with Cable combs
May want to cut a plate for the back fan. When it blows out the back, some of the air might be circulating back in to the case. (If this is happening, it is preventing cold air from being pulled in to the front.) You might be able to turn your fans down a little bit...
Still, it is a clean, sweet build!
or duct tape
I was 100% confused by this until I looked at the back of my case.
Look at demcifilter.com
I have them on my phanteks Luxe and they are great. I'm guessing you do have negative pressure and the filter could even change that without flipping a fan or adding more.
If they don't have them for your case you can give them the measurement for the back and custom make it. My rear filter is an L shape which I believe yours would be very similar for the back of your case.
Curious. You have 8 fans in there right? How many are intake? Were you able to do push/pull on the front rad? Is there intake on the bottom? Have you tried using a small piece of paper or something and putting it on an open part of the case where no fan is. If it sucks it to the case then you may want to rearrange fans so the paper blows away. That way you know your case pressure is positive.
Cool I am looking into them now. Well... Later after some max Payne lol. Yes I have 4 on the rad 3 up top and a rear
Yeah I imagine you have negative pressure then since all the intakes are going through the rad and also has the front filter. You can always get the filter on the back which will reduce about 20% airflow and if it's still negative then flip the rear fan that way it's 5-3. Imo positive air pressure is important and especially keeps the inside of your system far cleaner. I actually flipped my rear fan and am very glad I did.
Anyway very nice build.
I wish I knew a good way to seal up around a fan. Sure, you could use black electrical tape. Seems like the case manufacturer, when they realized they had a non-square hole, should have included plastic covers varying diameters.
Also, how many suction fans do you have? How many discharge fans do you have? Is your CFM in = CFM out? If you have more CFM in, I do not think you have to worry about air recycling in the back of your case.
Might be a neat experiment to run a few baselines, one with it as-is, one with the extra holes taped over. This falls in to the "Hold my beer and watch this," method of testing though. (One I wholeheartedly endorse!)
Once again, NOT a criticism, just trying to be constructive.
I like this thing, Its one of the most beautiful freaking builds ive ever seen. Very clean! And the color scheme worked out great!
Cutting is close on that PSU but still good. I can't say much. I've used lower quality and cut it close as well.
This is a really nice, clean build. +1
650w is fine for a single 390x.
It will only use about 400ish watts at load.
Just going off that PCPP estimated system wattage of 563, dude.
PCPP overestimates. The fans and other things like storage don't really matter all that much.
Hmm did not know that. So in your estimation this one could use a 500 watt?
Probably, but thats too close for my tastes. Even 550w is close for me. I like to have adequate headroom.
650 is my magic number
You should get a 2k monitor ,390x is overkill for 1080p
Very clean build, like the case. That H440 seems to really be getting around these days.
Here in my garage, just bought this new Lamborghini. Its fun to drive up the Hollywood hills. But do you want to know what I like more than my Lamborghini? A small loan of a million dollars. But do want to know what I like more than a small loan of a million dollars. This computer.
Nice work bud. +1
Looks great, you should get some cable combs for those GPU and CPU cables to clean it up a bit more.
Cable combs added and pics updated.
This is a really nice looking build! :-)
Hey, it's a really nice and a clean build.
I have the same case and building my rig. However, just one or two things that might help you, I researched a lot on it, and everywhere they say putting a radiator in the front is a bad idea, put it up on the top as in exhaust, sure your processor will get a bit warmer, but just a bit, like 3-4 degrees at the max. Secondly, H440 has a very limited airflow, and you used AF on the radiator, and on the top as intake, you should have gone with static pressure fans, they would help in cases like H440.
Other than that, fantastic build :D
I do have SP fans on the rad, I am running the the stock NZXT fans that came with the rad in push pull.
I thought about top mounting.. but the Corsair fans aesthetically would go to waste front mounted.
Hi there.... awesome build man, just wondering, I am looking to build a pc soon with this motherboard and the same h440 case..... Just one thing. Does this motherboard have a USB 3.0 header on it so that I could connect the 2x front USB 3.0 slots on the H440? plz help if you can.
Yes the board does have a USB 3.0 Header.
There is one below the 24 pin and I believe one on the bottom of the mobo
Thank you very mch for the reply. Hope to build using this motherboard very soon.... Also one more thing.... After using this board for a whil, how is it coping? Have you run into any issues with it or anything like that?
None at all. I am a noob at Overclocking but the AI suite bumped it from 4.0 to 4.7 and during long gaming I have never went above 61C
Thank you again :) I will definately buy this motherboard now. Hope to build my pc soon
Very awsome looking build. Nice one. Last thing I would do is slap some cable combs on to those gpu cables.
They are on the way. They have been stuck in LA since the 18th
Was about to mention those combs then notice Radox-0's comment
+1. How satisfied are you with the m.2 950 pro? Looking into the 512g slot for my next build.
Ya the combs are on the way. I know it's nightmarish
Sounds good! No, I did not think they were nightmarish. :)
Ya I have combs on the way and yes I have the 280 rad with push pull in the front
