  • the problem with the rebranded cards is that they can look cooler but they are so beefy, I don't mind beefy cards, but I don't like it when all u see is the ugly heatsink

  • Awesome build! So I also used the Liquid cooler from Cooler Master but used the controller included with my H500M case instead of going directly into the MB. For some reason though the controller isn’t picked up by my MB or the lighting controls to control it through the app. Any solutions or hints how to fix that? I’ve thought about rewiring everything but wanted to see if tneres an easier solution?? Thanks! Love your builds!

    V PRV PR9 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • I think the processor/ram is going to affect your video editing performance more than anything. The 2070 super will be more than adequate to edit 4k on Premiere.

  • Looks great, but that sag is awful! It's like looking at a crooked monitor; you wanna straighten it up. There gotta be something you can do to level it out. Hopefully motherboard manufacturers will be listening and take this in account and implement some kinda brace or bracket support for heavier cards.

  • Great video Paul, hey question: Did you test what's the most effective positioning of fan for your build? I'm about to build a similar one using the 011 and I'm wondering what's the most efficient positioning for cooling. I'm using same 360mm AiO and I have 5 more 120mm RGB fans available.

  • the 3600 gives you i7 8700k performance(pure gaming) which is more than enough for next 4-5 years!!!. I myself have i7 4770k with RTX 2070 and I run 4k ultra about 30 fps so stop waste money and be smart buyers!!! my recommendations: R5 3600 get RTX 2060 or 2070 super b450 motherboard about RAM: that's up to you-get 3200 cl14 ram (very fast) although it's really expensive. if you have more to spent go for 3700x but NOT 3800 or 3900 its pure waste of money without much FPS GAINS!!

  • Why the AIO on top as exhaust? You're "cooling" the water with hot air from inside the cage. Don't you think the AIO rad would've make more sense on the side with fans as intake, and use 3 fans to exhaust on top? I'm building a pc in the same case and trying to figure it out where the AIO rad goes...
