Case: Cougar QBX

Mobo: ASUS Maximus VI Impact
CPU: i5-4690k OC to 4.7 GHz
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 AIO w/ Prolima thin 120mm fan
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance
GPU: MSI Gaming X GTX 1080 Ti
SSD: PNY 250GB
HDD: WD 1TB
PSU: Enermax Revolution SFX 550W w/ custom sleeved cables.

Wanted a small 4k gaming box. Pretty stoked with how it turned out! Making the cables was tedious as hell but make a huge difference in this tiny case, looks and airflow equally! I want to ditch the HDD and get a 1TB SSD and replace the current SSD with an m.2 drive.

Yeah, it wasn’t easy and I had to modify the case a bit to fit a radiator above the mobo and to fit the massive MSI 1080 ti. 

 

Both the CPU and GPU run around the 60-70° range under load. I wish the mobo didn’t have the massive vrm heatsink, to be honest. It blocks about a third of the radiator.

It's simply a handsome build! Really well executed!

I can just stare at it whole day admiring..

 

I'm also working on QBX build currently, migrating from ITX tower.

I will do my best to get the best fit without taking any compromise with beefy air cooler in it. This will be my first and the most challenging build..

 

I was thinking to use that same PSU, but I got information about the Enermax Revolution SFX is not a good unit, but that side brand lettering gives it a really nice additional aesthetics which is one of the reason I want to use this PSU.

 

What do you think about that PSU so far you are using it?

My system specs:

Thank you! So far the PSU has been perfectly fine, no issues. I even have a pretty decent overclock on the GPU and CPU.

sorry for reviving this thread, but how on earth did you place the 1080ti in there? I have the same case planning on getting a newer graphics card for my RVZ02 build and chucking my 1070ti gaming x on the QBX case.

Hello, I am planning on building with this case and using an AIO specifically the Corsair H60 as well. I just wanted to know, if you need to use a SFX PSU to have that aio on the top because personally I don't want the AIO hanging on the side panel.

Cheers!

hello O-R1C3,

  The OP used a SFX PSU and did a great job mounting a his H60 AIO over the CPU (see pic above). I would definitely recommend a SFX in the QBX to give you plenty of room to work. IMHO the side panel blocks the view of a job well done.
