    Wink Build finally looks how i want it to be - 8700k + Maximus X Hero in Phanteks Evolv X

    The mission to move my build from old claustrophobic case (S340 Elite) to something more spacious began over month ago but as always, everything has to be perfect, so only since a week or so, the build was considered to be finished. Link to imgur gallery: https://imgur.com/gallery/gWCqXp1

    Full specs:
    Code:
    Intel i7-8700k 5Ghz @ 1.28V
    NZXT Kraken X62 AIO + 2x SilverStone FHP141v2
    Asus ROG Maximus X Hero
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB 2x8GB 3200MHz
    EVGA GTX1080ti FTW3
    Seasonic Prime Gold 750W
    Samsung Evo 960 500GB NVME M.2 SSD
    Western Digital Black 7200RPM 500GB
    Western Digital Gold 7200RPM 4TB
    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv X Anthracite Grey
    Dell S2716DG G-Sync 1440p 144Hz
    LG 22M45 1080p 60Hz
    Gas spring extendable monitor arm
    Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro L White Cherry MX Brown
    Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum
    Hyper X Cloud I
    What else can be seen:

    - Custom made DIY Ambient Lighting that changes LED colours behind monitor depending what's displayed on screen (works with fullscreen games)
    - For RGB lighting on fans, instead of going for some poor and weak RGB fans, just for lighting, i decided to buy Phanteks digital HALO's that can be mounted on any fan and turn it RGB, so we don't have to make compromises between performance and RGB
    - Custom paracord sleeving on EVERYTHING! And by that i mean literally every cable in case i could find, not just PSU! This includes pesky USB 3.0/3.1 cables, fan cables, internal case cables (front panel audio, power switch, cables from RGB controller and built in RGB strips etc.) There is a dedicated gallery for sleeving and cable management https://imgur.com/gallery/GfYiL6U

    And as an extra, the build process!


    Goals for future? Replacing exhaust fans, right now I'm running stock Phanteks case fans on back/top exhaust, and after replacing AIO fans on front with uber high performance SilverStone FHP141v2 i feel like they are not keeping up with air circulation. Also, right now, when i was sleeving fan cables, i would use a single paracord sleeve for all 3/4 cables. Few days ago i ordered aobut 100m of a 1.2mm paracord sooooo.... ill be giving a try to sleeving each of the fan cables separately for that extra neat look.

    Phanteks fans in general are "OK" but he ones included not really, asked Phanteks about their specs:

    There are 140MP 3 pin fans without model number .

    Here are the specs :


    Speed (RPM)


    1200 ± 250 rpm

    Max Airflow


    58.1CFM

    Acoustical Noise


    1.31 mmH2O

    Static Pressure:


    24.2 dBA

    Even assuming they have OK P-Q curve, i assume they have real life airflow of about 35 CFM at full speed.
