  1. Im looking into a 'how to do it myself' method, this is a very good idea! Untill now I have only considered making 1 full piece, which has been bugging me a lot Making seprate panels might be a better idea! I have not worked with a sheet metal yet tho
  2. This is my fallback option, I would love something that could fit on the back, maybe even painted orange. Unfortunatly I haven't found a 3D printer that can print as large as the casing is and is still payable, most 3D print websites are way to expensive (300-500 euro's for just a cap)
  3. Hi! My current setup makes it so that I can see the back of my desktop, which isn't a huge deal, but I don't like the fact that I can see all the wires. I am looking for something that I can make/buy to put on the back of my pc to hide cables without compromising the airflow, any ideas? This is my pc: This is the back, i want to cover the left part, or if possible, the whole casing.
  4. Checked everything, didnt see anything off, checked some videos online, noticed i might have made a mistake with the panel for power supply and stuff, so redid that, now nothing goes on anymore only the MOBO Light. help
  5. I will check that, is there something I need to keep in mind? I have a Corsair 650X, its nice and dynamic, but I also noticed i have 4 sections: It seems quite obvious where what goes right? Left side = Harddrives atc., bottom right is MOBO, top right is GPU (even tho i says CPU?)
  6. i7 8700k is plenty, for gaming you do not need a CPU beast, most games are GPU related, CPU will only be around 30-40% usage on a i7-8700k
  7. Thank you for your response, unfortunatly, the same result
  8. Hi! I just finished my build, after finding out that the RAM wasn't connected properly I thought I had it all ready to run. So I set it up, connected it with power & a monitor, fired it up, and everything seemed fine, the CPU lights went on,RAM lights wents on, MOBO went on. Than I noticed my monitor was not showing anything, after inspecting I noticed that the GPU was blowing extremely hard, and I don't have any lights on it so I dont know if it is connected properly. I checked multiple ports for the display port cable & for the DVI cable, I plugged them in my MOBO & GPU but none seem to react. I dont have any beeping sounds or indicators something is off. What could I check next, I am clueless as of why the monitor does not kick on. Below is my setup, I went for the NZXT H440 orange casing & my video card is the new RTX 2080.
  9. That one looks dope! did not know be quiet made cases!
  10. Thank you for your response I will definitly consider the upgrades, I found a K version for only 20 euro's upgrade so that is already a simple upgrade, the TI is way more expensive at this moment tho (200-300) euro's so I will need to reconsider that one. Do you have any tips on going for 'extra' devices like a sound card, would that improve sounds with a Logitech G933? Or other techy devices for controlling the RGB lights? I forgot to mention that I bought an Asus ROG PG279Q a while ago when i upgraded to the GTX 1080, for that 144hz 1440p gaming experience
  11. I know the K version means it can be overclocked, but I am wondering if that would actually be notice-able during gaming for example
  12. Why do you recommend the k version? I do not know if the extra performance would actually give me any noticeable benefit, and the K version is 50 quid more expensive, this also goes for the TI version, I am not sure I would fully use the 2080TI, since I am not even using the 1080 to its fullest
  13. Hi! I have been using this setup, more or less, for the past 5 years, the last year or so I have been considering replacing it. The problem is that I am always very indecisive of what I want to go for as a setup. I have made up my mind mostly about the price range for the 'internal' of the PC, this would be around 1500 euro's +/-. Do still wonder if the combination is the best for me. I want the setup to be orange colored because that is my main color & I love that color The thing is, I do not have space on my desk top place the PC, if I do I lose the main source of light in the room which I do not want to lose. Placing the pc under the desk is an option but I do not want to go for a tainted glass or even something fancy than because I am afraid you won't see it and its a waste of money. I have seen a dope liquid cooled orange setup by Thermaltake, but I cannot seem to find someone who can help me build this beast, I have experience building pcs (build my own & for a couple of friends) but all are standard desktop setups, noone of em are like this fancy Wall PC. The one I am very enthousiastic about is this one: https://www.google.nl/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjswoyK6u7dAhVSLFAKHUjrDs4QjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.kitguru.net%2Fcomponents%2Fcases%2Fjon-martindale%2Fcomputex-thermaltake-shows-off-new-cases-with-custom-builds%2F&psig=AOvVaw3quwnba3mUh2NiFWSY7rsC&ust=1538812660164987 My Current setup involves: CPU: I7-4770k 3.5 GHz ( Overclocked to 4.4 GHz ) GPU: Geforce GTX 780, 3 GB RAM: Corsair 16GB DDR3-1866 Main Harddisk: Samsung 256 GB SSD Gaming Harddisk: WD 1 TB HDD Work Harddisk: Samung 2 TB HDD Power supply: Corsair AC760 Water cooling: Corsair Hydro Series H80i Case: Thermaltake Level 10 Snow White Limited Edition After 2 years I upgraded my system a bit and bought another SSD of 256 GB and a new videocard, GTX 1080. Since my girlfriend is also building a new PC I will donate her my GTX 1080 and replace it with a RTX 2080 (what a shame haha). Could you guys be so kind to give me some feedback on my setup & maybe even recommend someone to build the PC for me, or maybe advice on if I should/could do this by myself. If I would do it myself I would probably buy a very standard base for now and buy the one for the setup right after to start building while using the pc in a different setup I will use the pc mainly for playing Virtual Reality & games, but also for programming, it might even be an option to go a step lower than I have chosen now due to me mostly playing First Person Shooters. The new setup I am looking for: CPU I7-8700 CPU Cooler NZXT Kraken X62 (met AM4 support) Moederbord Asus ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING RAM G.Skill 16GB Power Supply Corsair RM650x Case ?????? something orange GPU RTX 2080
  14. No problem! Books are really depending on your taste, there are so many out there! I have always been a visual person I need to see or hear it before I can imagine how it works, books have never worked for me, not as the core of development anyways. I would suggest keeping it simple YouTube videos and things like code academy and pluralsight really helped me! Also practice makes perfect, as long as you keep criticizing on your coding behavior, speed etc. You will grow
