      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.

                  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?

                      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.

                  What are you going to use your TR PC for?

                      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

                      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!

                          Why'd ya go 240 vs. the 360?  I mean, I'm happy with my 240.. but still.. if I could have popped a 360 in there, Id have a 360 in there (and am tempted to modify the one I have to put a 2nd radiator inline so I can run one at the top of the case as well.. to get 360 worth of cooling out of it.

                            Hi,

                             

                            Why don't you go for CorsairHD Series RGB fans? That way you can choose whatever color you want.
                            I have them in one of my machines, one of them is used the other side of an R9 Fury X Radiator.
                            They come with a wired remote that you can run underneath / outside your case, or since you have an Axi series PSU - Corsair Link.
