  1. nah i actually like the colors of the regular noctua fans something about them i have always enjoyed. i also had a X58 sabertooth motherboard years ago and i liked those "desert earth tone" type of colors on there. i was trying to decide between the black case and the white version and i like both a lot but ended up going with the white partly to just try something new and to be able to see inside better plus i thought the noctua colors would match with white. i probably will be adding some RGB lighting it there eventually, although i really like how it looks with no lighting the tint on the glass panels looks really nice in person the photos dont do it justice.
  2. ah yes, i was also curious about how the thermals would be especially without any case fans installed. it did feel a little wrong running without any fans, but there is lots of passive ventilation. below is the numbers after running Vampye for about 6 hours 4k resolution and all max detail settings and then encoding a 40min 4k video. the cpu idles around 35-40c (the cpu cooler fan is on auto) and it reached a max temp of about 80c during all of that game play and encoding. the GPU is similar its idling around 37-40c and it hit a max of 83c during the gameplay. i just ordered 4x noctua fans to install and so i will do some similar testing with those and see that the temps are like and report back about that.

  3. I also have one other video I made "unboxing" and showing the case before building.
  4. Hi guys its been a while but I do have something new to share. back when i built my last machine i was looking at the lian li pc 08 case and i liked it a lot, but ultimatly decided to go with super super understated and plain (the PCaq41). but i have always liked nice tempered glass cases, and i have always loved LIAN LI in general. so i recently case across some reviews of the new(ish) 011 dynamic designed by der8auer i got very excited because it looked like exactly what i like/wanted. a good dual chamber setup with a smart layout, nice tempered glass windows, not too huge etc. this is not completely done yet because i am going to add noctua cooling fans for case cooling (probably 3 intake on the side and 1 exhaust at the time) and i have a few hardware updates i want to do including adding more ram and another hard drive for storage nothing too exciting. the main stuff 6700K, GTX 1070 is still working well for most new games even though they are about 3 years old at this point so I will hang onto those for a while. this is not a completely new build. for now i am moving my build from my old LIAN LI PC-A41 case into the new 011 DYNAMIC case. I have a few upgrades the i want to do soon including RAM, storage, and I will be adding noctua cooling fans for case cooling. there may be more upgrades coming as well, including maybe a corsair commander pro and LED strips. i want to have full control over the fans and lighting so i like the idea of the commander. current specifications Intel i7 6700K Noctua NH-C14S ASRock Z170M Extreme4 HyperX Fury 16GB 2666MHz Seasonic SS-660XP2 Platinum 660W ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Turbo Samsung 850 EVO 500GB Seagate BarraCuda 4TB Lian Li PC-O11DW 011 Dynamic IMG_1707 by Andre Vautour, on Flickr DSC05736edit2 by Andre Vautour, on Flickr DSC05726edit2 by Andre Vautour, on Flickr DSC05738edit2_1 by Andre Vautour, on Flickr
  5. Here are a couple videos I made today on the system.
  6. yes it doesn't seem very efficient. most other modern games run well at 4k resolution and ultra settings on my 1070 so i am pleased with it and i don't really feel i need to get a second card. i was played witcher 3 today and it was at about 30-40 frames but its playable. crisis 3 doesn't quite run smoothly at maxed settings/4k but it is really good looking haha
  7. i have a single 1070 right now and i get solid frame rates on most games at 4k res. not sure abt ubisoft games specifically. i know rise of tomb raider is pretty demanding.
  8. love the window in the top/front. makes me slightly regret my descision to not get a lian li pc 08
  9. Nice. I like it. It reminds me a little bit of the Happy Hacking Pro 2 I had a Mionix black switch that I got for free (from my dad) when he replaced it. its good but it has a full number pad and takes up a lot of space on my desk. I have two computers on there so I would like something smaller. I had my eye on the Filco 87 key stealth for a while now and it was on sale at NCIX just last week. I almost hit buy but it was sold out by the time I did! So Im just sticking with my current keyboard for now.
  10. nice to see a build with the x99 taichi! when i saw the graphics on that i didn't know how i felt about it but it is unique for sure. interested to see how this turns out
  11. I havent looked through this entire thread yet but I like this idea!! lots of pictures are always good. Also what keyboard is that!
  12. Here are some temperatures (case closed) After 30 minutes of OCCT 30 minutes of CPU and GPU folding
  13. Ah, I knew you guys would hate that! I just threw it in temporarily I have multiple of the braided Noctua splitters around but couldn't find one just at that moment. Here we go I know a lot of people don't like the bare inside but I actually like unpainted aluminum. I would have loved to have used to Silver model of the M25 case I was looking at if the layout wasn't weird and the silver was actually available! The case I did use comes in Silver, too but they didn't have it in stock. I am happy with the black finish on the outside and silver inside though.
