Multi-Media Shift X

This Windows 10 rig is based on the Phanteks Shift X Case (modified). It has two ProlimaTech PRO-USV14 Ultra Sleek Vortex Fans cooling the mobo; the fan on the left side of the mobo is pushing cool air across the Asrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming-ITX/ac motherboard and the fan on the right side is pulling and exhausting the hot air. There is also a Phanteks 140mm fan and Lux Halo pushing cool air into the cabinet from the bottom.

The CPU is an Intel 8700K overclocked to 4.1GHz. The CPU cooling is a Noctua NH-L9x65 radiator with a ProlimaTech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 slim 15mm fan and Phanteks Halo. The mobo has a Samsung 512gb 960 Pro boot drive and 32gb of Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000MHz memory.

The rig is powered by a be quiet BN215 PS and has six 1TB Samsung 840 SSDs for storage. The Nvidia Founders Edition 1060 GPU is mounted on a modified mounting bracket that provides a much cleaner appearance than the standard bracket. The 1060 performs extremely well rendering in Adobe Premier and working with the Adobe Photoshop application.

I wanted to go without AIO cooling in an effort to showcase the six Samsung 840 SSDs. I accomplished the look I wanted and I am "Extremely Happy" with the performance of this "Air Cooled" build!!
