Description

Hi guys!

After 5 years I finally built my absolute dream PC. It took me a while to create something special. I wanted the PC to look futuristic and I decided to go with a Cyberpunk style here. I also wanted the PC to be kinda logic so I went with Corsair, MSI and Lian Li. I didn't want to have hardware from many Manufacturer. I also looked for a balance of beauty and performance so I decided to put the fans in the right spot to get good cooling. I am very proud of what I did here and this machine is an absolute beast. I just love it and I hope you guys love it too! I have to say that the cable management was the biggest pain of my life haha. 9 fans are kinda hard with all those cables but I don't regret it. I just had to buy them all because of the case. It would be a waste to have such a beautiful case and not installing anything in it. If you have any questions then feel free to ask! :)

Good looking build, love how you controlled the RGB to match a theme. Glad you eventually got to your dream PC! It's a satisfying feeling to finally get to that point. Granted I am at the opposite end of that road personally, but I am excited to get there eventually! Overall great build and a definite +1 from me!

Thanks for the encouragement! -^

This is my current build right now (Mostly parts given to me by a friend who upgraded his own PC): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/StrallTech/builds/#view=WNtgXL

And here is my first step in upgrading: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/StrallTech/saved/#view=Xgw4nQ

The case in my upgrade's list is potential if things work out money wise to get it with the fans. If not then that will come at a later date.

Awesome build, looking to do a similar build in the same case with the same fans. How did you manage to get all 9 fans synced through the commander pro?

  • 2 months ago
  • 2 points

Hi, thank you! I can only recommend this case and those fans. :) The sync was easier than I thought. So there was a splitter which came with the watercooler, so I put 3 fans in 1 splitter and then I put it in the cpu fan header on the mainboard. The last 6 cable went into the commander pro and the RGB lighting cables went into the node core. :) You can then change the RPM and the RGB in the iCue software from Corsair.

Hi! Yes that is true. I am waiting for the 3080Ti, that is why I went with the 2070S for now as the card is pretty decent for me.

Godlike Mobo, by the way. Would you consider posting idle/load temps?

Hi! I can look into it in the next time. :)

Hi! So I looked into it. Idle temperature is around 35°C and load temperature is around 55-60°C with overclocking. My cooling is set to balanced and my fans run on medium speed, also while gaming. Temperatures are pretty decent. :)

Hi! Thank you so much. :) I have no dust right now which is a good thing. I had so much dust in my last PC but with the new one I have almost nothing. :) The motherboard was pretty cheap in Switzerland so I bought it, because it also was one of my dream boards.

How do you feel after spending $300 on fans? lol

  • 2 months ago

I feel pretty damn poor hahahaha. It is a lot for fans, but I rather have them now than later. That is why I waited so long to build this PC, but in the end it was worth it. Very nice fans and the systems runs smoothly and very cool.

Wow that sure is some nice eye candy! Think you can take some pics with your entire desk setup? I noticed the IKEA Alex/Karlby desk hack and was hoping to also see at least one daytime (non RGB) pic of the complete Battle Station.

Hi! Thank you very much. :) Sure, I can look into that the next days.

Absolutely beautiful build, love it. I felt in love with the Lian Li Dynamic and I was thinking about getting one for my next build. I have a few questions about the fan configuration and cooling. Are you able to control RPM and lighting after using a 3 way splitter for the AIO if you connect it to the CPU fan header? And do you connect the AIO fans to the lighting node, then to the commander pro in order to control the lights? Also, how are the QL120 noise levels compared to the LL120 or ML120 (don't know if you had them before), I wouldn't want to spend that amount of money knowing that they are loud or they don't perform as well as the others. Hope you can help, and again awesome PC man.

Hi! Thanks man, that means a lot. <3 Yes you can control the RPM and the lightning with Corsair iCUE although the fans are connected to the splitter and then to the CPU fan header. You just have to connect the RGB cables to the Node Core in the right order so that it makes sense. For example my number 1 fan starts at the left top corner and the whole RGB system ends at the bottom left corner. Its pretty much straight forward and very easy to understand after a few minutes. :) I thought it would be harder. Ah yes and the cable for the fan itself goes into the Commander Pro. Only the RGB cables go to the Node Core and the rest to the Commander or to the fan headers on the mainboard. Fan noise is pretty good so far! You can put them on silent mode or on balanced etc and they are very good. My PC is always pretty cool and after 1-2 weeks I have no complaints at all. I hope I could help! Have a nice day. :)

Man this is a stunning build! I hope it's serving you well :)

I'm currently in the process of building a very similar rig and LOVE the way yours look. Just had a couple quick questions about your fan choice: did you notice any decrease in performance or increase in noise by switching out the ML120s from the H150 pro for the QL120s? What kind of temps does your CPU usually run at? And lastly, how do you think the QLs look compared to the LLs?

Thanks for any info man!

Hi man, thank you very much for the kind words. I'm proud of this build and I do like it, when other people also like what I've done! I can't tell you a lot about the ML120 fans, because I bought my PC in one piece. I switched the fans and mounted the QL120 in, so no info on the ML120. The temps are pretty good. I have around 40 degree in idle and around 50-65 in the game with 5,0 Ghz. I also have pretty much the same when I clock my CPU to 5,2 Ghz. I have to say that I put my fanspeed or mode to "low noise" and I still have good temperatures. The PC is for me quiet enough but Corsair iCue increases for some reason the fanspeed sometimes. I read that its a setting in the BIOS, because of the voltage or so, but it doesn't bother me at all. All in all it is extremely powerful while having low temperatures, even in low noise mode. For the look of the fans I have to say that I like the QL120 a lot more, because you can do more with them. You can change the colour or effect of both sides and do some crazy ****. :D That was what I was looking for. I would go with the CL fans, even tho they are a bit more expensive than the ML. Was a pleasure to answer your question. :) Have a nice day dude. I also wish you a lot of fun and joy with your build!

Thanks so much for the info man!

I've been super eager to buy the QL120s as case fans but have been on the fence due to their relatively poor benchmarking in reviews. But, since I won't be doing any real overclocking and since there are people like you who've had good experiences with them, I'm super excited to give them a go :D

Sure! I did a lot of overclocking at first, but I don't find it that necessary to overclock the CPU to more than 5.0 Ghz. There isn't a lot of performance to gain when you overclock it to 5.2 or 5.3 Ghz. I was able to run the system smoothly at 5.2 Ghz but I went down to 5.0 Ghz, because of temperatures and voltage. My PC is really quiet right now although I play a lot per day and it doesn't even get hot, even on the low noise mode. Have a nice day man! :)

Do you use 2 Corsair Fan Controllers for all 9 fans? And one more question, what monitors do you use?

  • 2 days ago
  • 2 points

Hi! If you buy a pack of 3 QL fans then you get the corsair lightning node core with it. Its only for the RGB and has 6 slots. I used 2 of those nodes for the RGB control and for the fans I plugged them all in the Commander Pro, so I can control the fanspeed for example in the iQue software together with the RGB effects. :) In this setup I use 2 Acer Predators. 1x 34 inch widescreen and 1x 27 inch monitor. Have a nice day buddy!

So, you can plug all 9 fans into single Commander Pro and control fan speed while you use node core for RGB? If so, that is great because i was worried on how to connect all those fans and control them (i'd love to build PC similar to yours). Thank you for answering tho! One more thing, how do you find RTX 2070 Super in 1440p? Sorry for bothering you.

  • 1 day ago
  • 2 points

Hey you don't bother me! I love to answer questions. :) Yes you are right. I was worried too because of so many fans, but I had luck that the cooler came with an adapter. I plugged the 3 fans from the cooler into a 3:1 adapter and this adapter went into the mainboard fan header. The last 3 cables for the RGB went into the node core from Corsair. And the other fans went into the Commander Pro and into the node core. :) It was easier than I thought it would be. I'm honest, I wanted a 2080ti first, but since I don't really play on 4k, I decided to go with the 2070S. The card is super good for 1440p gaming. It fits me best. The 2080ti would have been a waste, because its still too expensive although we probably get the 3000 Series this year. I will just wait until I collect enough money and maybe I will buy the card someday, but for now the 2070S is totally fine. Have a nice day buddy! :) Just ask if you have more questions.

Thank you again for answering! :) I was worried about all the fans, but now i'm fine knowing it will all work well. 2080ti is super expensive atm and i really hope for new 3000 series GPUs this year. It's also good to hear that 2070S is good for 1440p :) Have an awesome day man!

what are those lights on the wall? seeing them everywhere recently. +1!

Thanks buddy! I just saw them too and wanted them for my Cyberpunk setup haha. They're called "Nanoleaf" and are quite expensive. Here in Switzerland u pay like 200 Dollars for I think 9 pannels or so. They look really great and can upgrade your room a lot if you want something special for your setup. They're just a bit expensive but overall its worth it. They're pretty bright and you can do some cool effects with the handy app. :)

How did you get all your fans to work. Did you have to use splitters?

  • 1 day ago
  • 1 point

Hey buddy! I basically plugged the first 3 cables of the fans of my cooler into a 3:1 splitter. The splitter went into the fan header on my mainboard. The last 3 cables for the RGB went into the node core from Corsair that came with the QL fans. So for the fan control I put the cooler fans into the mainboard fan header and the rest into the Commander Pro. All of those RBG cables went into the node core and that is it. :) I hope I answered your question correctly. :D I struggle with my English sometimes haha. Btw, the splitter came with the cooler! Have a nice day buddy! If you have further questions then feel free to ask me anything u wanna know. :)
