6700K + 980 TI SLI in a 400c

Recommended Posts

I didnt take any pictures of the components before this build. But I will show you my finished build.


Parts list:


Intel i7-6700K Skylake


Asus ROG Maximus VIII Ranger MOBO


G.Skill Trident Z 3200mhz 16GB(2x8gb) (F4-3200C16D-16GTZ)


EVGA Supernova G2 850 watt PSU (220-G2-0850-XR)


2x EVGA 980 TI ACX 2.0 + SC (06G-P4-4995-KR)


Corsair H110i GTX AIO water cooler (mounted to front as intake)


Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD


Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD


Western Digital Black 2TB HDD


EVGA Sleeved cable kit.


Corsair AF Series 120mm fans (1 rear exhaust, 2 top exhaust)



Im used to bigger cases such as the Corsair C70 and the Corsair 750D. The 400c compared to either of these cases is quite a difference in size. It wasnt too bad getting everything in until it came to the wiring. I wish the EVGA sleeved cables where a bit more manageable but they can be a bit stiff. So the cable management was a bit of trick. Just have to be careful putting the shrouds back on. I hooked up all cables that needed to be hooked up on the bottom headers first before installing the psu. Once I got most of the PSU cables installed I started hooking them up to the MOBO and drives and such. With the sleeved cables, I only them to the cpu header on top, and the 24 pin to the right, along with the VGA cables in the front. Im going to tidy those up later on.


This build sits on my desk for right now. Real pretty to look at. A tinted door would be a nice option for the future.












I had originally built this with an H80i GT and 3 120AF's on the front. The h110i is keeping my idle temp around 31c and gaming around 45. Its giving sufficient air to the GPUs I havnt seen one of them get over 72 yet. But idle temps for me were anywhere from 31c to 48c. I also downsized my psu from the supernova 1000g2 to the 850g2 for the extra room under the shroud. Its made a difference.


What do you guys think? Opinions?
