Sweet build! I like it. I currently have almost a completely different PC now. I'll have to post it soon :)
For some reason the option to add more pics inst showing up :(
Good morning. Thanks. With the Castle 240 there is absolutely no clearance issues on either side of the pump/block. There is a little more than half a centimeter of space left, once it's installed between the ram and pump hoses. I'll post a better pic in a few minutes.
Thank you! I really appreciate it.
I think it's worth it for looks. It does run 5 degrees warmer than my previous 2080ti Strix. Other than that, it performs just like my previous 2080ti.
It interferes with Corsair's RGB lighting on the ram. It does not affect Corsair LL fans.
The only reason I uninstalled it was because it interferes with my Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro ram. If you don't have that specific ram, you are all good.
Absolutely no problems. The only thing annoying is the RGB Fusion software. I set my GPU and motherboard with it, and then uninstalled it.
The Aorus Xtreme 2080ti with Samsung ram is definitely reliable.
Me too :(
For everything except the GPU(separate compartment), airflow is amazing. Before I had a Strix 2080ti. It would max out at 76C in the GPU compartment. I relocated the Quadstellar's temp sensor to the GPU compartment to open the front panels when the GPU reaches 56C. My current 2080ti has less than stellar cooling, and reaches 79C-83C. It's no fault of the case manufacturer....I would make sure your GPU has a full 3 fan setup or pushes air out of the case.
It wasn't hard. It was awkward. Having to rotate the entire case takes a little getting use to, and the motherboard is inverted.
I'll have to get another person for +2....
+1 for the cat!
I just got the Razer HDK!
I just expanded!
Thank you :)
They are pretty much just rgb led extension cables. They can be controlled by a board(hub) that goes into the pcie spots of the case or by Aura Sync etc...
Sorry I'm late to respond. I had to replace my Quadstellar with another new one because of an issue with one of the actuators.
I did try single GPU and temps were fine. When 1080ti sli is in the GPU chamber, it produces a lot of heat. Temps can be fine with an aggressive fan curve profile, but it creates a lot of fan noise. When you remove the GPU bracket, it is more visually appealing to see through the tempered glass panels.
I know a lot of reviewers dislike the app. I personally like it. The lighting profiles are awesome and being able to read the temps and adjust fan speed rocks!!
I only tried one 1080ti in the GPU compartment. Although I didn't experience any thermal throttling, I didn't like the high temps off of a single GPU. So because of that, I didn't even try SLI in the GPU compartment. If you are going liquid loop, I would recommend the GPU compartment. If you are going with air cooling, you are better off using the motherboard directly. SLI also looks way better through the tempered glass from the motherboard, once you remove the GPU bracket panel. One of my pictures shows this. You can add two extra fans to the already included 4 up front, to blow air directly over both GPU's in the central motherboard area.
+1 nice build!
Thanks. Currently I have my PC in the bedroom, so that I can watch movies from the bed. When it comes to my wife and this room, I have no jurisdiction on how it is decorated lol.
Thanks. CPU temp is 29C at idle. 49C to 55C gaming. The reason why a few of the YouTubers say that this case can run hot is because they starve the case for air by putting a radiator up front. When you use air cooling, the radiator should be in the motherboard compartment below the motherboard. I also removed the top GPU compartments GPU bracket. It lowered my GPU temp 5C.
3 builds ago I had Hue+, Aer RGB and X62. Eventually I got tired of Cam software glitches and didn't look back.
It would because the PSU chamber has a tinted glass panel.
Thank you! When I saw the Quadstellar, I knew I had to have it.
It could have more. I have been debating a rgb psu.
Thank you I appreciate the kind words. No need to be jealous we are all a part of the master race lol.
Thank you. I play games, watch anime, torrents, movies etc....
My last Tower was a C700P. I started building many many years ago because I was sick of the progression of consoles. Even though I own every one of them since coleco. I wanted something that looked futuristic, and that didn't look like a typical pc tower.
Lol...its all good. GOD is great. Thank you.
You have to create the part in the list, when it is not available to be selected.
Thank you. The building was definitely interesting, because you have an inverted motherboard... and you have to continually rotate the case to get to certain areas.
The video is just of the actuators opening and closing the 4 compartment doors. It's very short. I also wondered if air cooling would be enough to cool this case....since most builds have a single GPU in the GPU compartment or a liquid loop. Fortunately they leave room for 2 more 120mm fans right in front of where SLI GPU's would be seated on the motherboard. With the 2 extra fans I am very happy with 1080ti sli temps in this case. I haven't seen anyone else do it, so it was a big gamble coming from a cool C700P.
I really like the RGB lighting profiles and diffused lighting of the Quadstellar. I may get a Gamdias RGB PSU.
I thought about doing a loop, but current AIO look better than CPU water blocks and I upgrade too much for a liquid loop. Asus has 2 types of OLED screen CPU AIO's coming out this year.
Check this out!!
This Quadstellar 1080ti sli build runs cool with 7 CF 120 fans.
Her name is Shelby. She is definitely a part of the fam! As much as I love my PC, If I had to choose between this build and her....I'd choose her :)
Thank you. I always wanted the Tristellar. I'm so glad I missed that case and got the Quadstellar!!!
Thank you. I have gone rgb crazy in the past lol....I recently dialed it down lol.
Thanks. I absolutely love this chair.
I love it. I'm still waiting for the PG35VQ :(
