Ripper

Description

Talk about perfect timing. Parts I owned from a previous rig died on me and I used the money I got back from the replacement plan to get a very nicely discounted CPU and MoBo.

Re: Ripper

I do a variety of things, but in order of importance:

  1. Music Production with Ableton Live and connecting analog instruments via a USB interface.
  2. Mobile App Development with Xamarin and Visual Studio.
  3. Playing Video Games and Streaming on Twitch.
  4. Bragging with friends and colleagues

Re: Ripper

The Enermax is fantastic, however it was a bit of a challenge to fit on this case. I had to remove a lot of internal HDD/SATA frames from inside (I even had to use power tools to remove some rivets).

It's very silent compared to my previous build which had a Ryzen 7 with an EVGA H110i cooler.

Do you have a picture of your build?

Re: Ripper

I do.. If you look in the builds section, I think I titled my thread 32 headed beast.

To get mine working right, I had to cut a grill into the front of my case .. I know the struggle, its real lol.

Re: Ripper

Here's the finished build, I would like to swap the fans for red ones since the case came with blue fans, but other than that I am happy with the airflow and rig performance so far.

As you can see I mounted the enermax liquid cooler on top of the pre-built case fans. I did some research and double-fanning is a positive thing if done right .

The GPU is an Asus Strix Vega 64 (triple fan), and it's a silent beast. I totally love it and I wish I had two!

Re: Ripper

Very useful, especially the bragging bit .
I really like the Graphics design on that ASRock X399 Taichi TR4 ATX motherboard.
