custom all the things!
Clean and cool.
Nice build, I had the red one but sent it back unused as I was a bit concerned about the limited air flow. I went with the Phanteks case in the end.
Here are a few more recent pics too
Thanks mate! I found a super good deal on some Avexir Core Series white cameo edition with LED DDR3 2400 RAM and bought 16gb worth at 4x4gb! These should add a nice bling factor to my setup and match the Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark S motherboard that features the same white cameo design.
Here's 2 pics I grabbed from Google for an example. I'll add pics when they arrive & I install them.
very nice indeed.
Avexir do a fair bit of fancy lighting on Dimms, I like the lightning ones.
Yeah, the Raiden RAM with the lightning look real nice! My only drawback was the blue color on the RAM, or I might have been interested. Blue's not bad, but the white cameo on the Core Series I liked much better.
I've read up that the prices on RAM are the lowest they've been in 26 months and I got the 16gb (4x4gb) of Avexir RAM for $39.99 for each set! Talk about a good deal!
That is insane pricing, yeah demand has been very low for Ram, expect the Christmas period to ramp up demand now that Skylake has joined Haswell - E on the DDR4 bandwagon. DDR3 will slow production so less supplies could drive up prices as stock depletes.
Nice and clean PC dude!
Many thanks! Appreciate it guys!
Here's the new Avexir Core Series white cameo edition DDR3 2400 RAM installed and in action!
The NZXT logo was switch off !?
I seemed to get one of the H440 cases that has the burnt out or dimmed LED lights. It happened a few months ago and just learned last month that NZXT will send out replacement & better LED logos and lights if you so happen to have this problem. I contacted them and they are out of stock of the replacement parts and will contact me when they receive them back in supply.
Bummer I know! Glad I searched the net about the issue before it was too late.
Lucky !!!! I think changing my big Cooler Master HAF X for a case like that....smaller. Before my 2 GTX 980, 2 GTX 480 (HOT !!!! ) was inside the HAF X. Now, i dont need alot of cooling for my GTX's....
So, how is the paint on this case...and the panel are solid? The paint on the HAF X never "chip".
And your Avexir, do you try to overlock pass 2400 Mhz? (I am curious...)
The HAF X is a beast of a case!
Everything about the NZXT H440 is excellent! The body, construction, glossy paint, size, inside room and overall awesome looks are just great! With the 3 NZXT 120mm fans in the front there's plenty of good airflow too.
I haven't OC'ed the Avexir RAM......yet! But really see no reason why they couldn't be pushed further, if I decided to.
Amazing rig !!!!!Love it ...
Woow man ,thats a nice mod ,plan to build something like that in near future <3
