Sirius Loops Box

by ausboss Posted on: 10/13/2020

Build Description

I have a family and my gaming/general use computer is in our main living area. I had a full size ATX case and wanted to downsize and upgrade my system.
This was my first small form factor build. I wanted to do something unique, fun and powerful on a budget and this is what I came up with.
It's basically the family computer now but me and my wife play FPS, fantasy and indie games. Mostly we've been playing Black Desert Online. It looks amazing on Remastered graphics setting!

It runs a little hot with the Ryzen 3600x spiking to high 70's °C at times while under load but the GPU stays cool 60-65 °C under full load. I bought some 3D printed risers to give more airflow under the case recently.
All in all it's worked out great and it's a pleasure to look at in my opinion. In the future, I may watercool the system in a custom loop for better thermals but for now I'm happy!

Favorite Feature

I love the look of the InWin Sirius Loop fans and had to do some modification to add the 5th one on the cpu cooler. Those fans and the and Trident Royal RAM contrasting the sleek Be Quiet! slim rock cooler to me just looks great to me.
