My new Star Citizen gaming PC is here!

Recommended Posts

My 2 cents:

Put the rad on top, set it up as exhaust

Put 2 more decent static pressure, 140mm intake fans infront (I'd suggest Thermalright TY-147A or B or BeQuiet Silent Wings 1600 RPM ones. There are also decent Phanteks ones but I don't remember the model number off the top of my head right now. Don't buy 140mm Noctuas as intakes, their propellers make whining noise when they're mounted as pull/intake since they're slightly offset from middle)

Redo the the back exhaust fan as intake and add a magnetic filter

Remove unused back PCI-E covers

Temps should go down considerably

Happy gaming :)

Unfortunately for me that won't work as there's not enough room in the top for a radiator due to the size of the case. As you can see in the picture I could just barely fit it with just 2 fans in the front. :P 

Thanks for the advice though. ;)

@Danakar Endeel On mobile so can't quote, but did you say that you had a 1080p monitor?

With a rig like this, please please please upgrade to 1440p! Sticking with 1080p is like waiting 12 years for Star Citizen only to play it on mobile. What's the point?

Ah nice, how about the fps?  Do you notice any slow down with your setup or flawless?

Just checked my fps again with the 'r_displayinfo 3' setting and it seems my counter on the monitor wasn't working properly. With the Star Citizen counter I only got 72+ fps in my hangar atm. So that kinda sucked. It still felt very fluid but it wasn't the solid 144fps that I was hoping for. :P

Yep, but my monitor is more like a temporary thing as I want to play with a VR headset once SC+SQ42 come out. :)

Haha not that bad, I’m the opposite, I have 4K but the rest of my hardware is the issue :)

I've decided to go another route, doing budget until the actual release of the game(s). Some prices are placeholder in case newer versions of these products come out or decide to wait until RAM prices come down. The main waiting game will probably be to get a ~$500 Volta GPU.

Well, I expected the case to support 280mm rads on top, it seems it doesn't, only supports up to 240mm.

Having rad in front isn't ideal for cooling since warm air coming off the rad will feed into GPU fans.

I did remember cheaper and decent Phanteks 140mm fan's model number, It's PH-140MP in case you're interested (should also have a black/white version).

Still, do remove those unused back PCI-E covers, it should help exhausting heated GPU air out of the case.

      (FFK)Fleet of The Faithful Knights
      The holy Knight has long since been forgotten for 1,500 years, For centuries the Holy Order of Knights had dedicated themselves to the safe passage of pilgrims to the Holy Land. They protected the travelers from thieves, robbers, and entire enemy armies. They were elite holy warriors. They dedicated their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to this cause. Through force, they brought peace and security to the land.

      Who we are

      We are a privately owned geological survey organisation, that proudly delivers commercially viable mineral deposits for the galaxy’s mining industry.

      Xenosystems Exploration & Survey performs the prerequisite checks which enable the discovery and extraction of popular commodity constituents, from intra-planetary and extra-planetary sources, and facilitates the sale of its mineral property assets to its corporate partners.

      The co-founders of the business made their fortunes by investing in a little-known mining venture formed prior to the advent of RSI’s Orion mining platform, and based on the knowledge of its anticipated arrival, by developing a lead into what was, then, a very stagnant and exclusive industry.

      No one was prepared for the explosion of entrepreneurial activity hat originated with the commercial release of the Orion, nor did they foresee the profound effect it would have on the economy. Suffice to say, our founders’ initial investment performed rather well.

      With the dividends of their success and their burgeoning knowledge of the mining sector, our founders incorporated Xenosystems Exploration & Survey as a cutting-edge prospecting organisation, to discover and acquire new mineral deposits for resale.

      Xenosystems is now rolling out an aggressive growth strategy, with a view to becoming the premier prospecting establishment across all sovereign territories. For more information on career opportunities, please click here.




      What we offer

      Xenosystems is an industrial organisation first and foremost. Our intention is to create a robust and profitable company within the ‘Verse, within which our members can have a great time and thrive.

      While the mechanics of payments and contracts are still in development, we can provide a rough guide of the types of gameplay we’ll be offering for new and existing members.

      Solo or Coop

      The beauty of Xenosystems is that our core activities can carried out by lone wolves and team players, alike. If you want to prospect, mine or claim by yourself this is entirely possible and welcomed. We know that some nights you’ll just want to tune out, listen to a playlist and bash some rocks. We’ll be around later for when you want the camaraderie of others.

      What we aim to offer to the solo player, is a number of benefits such as those outlined below:

      Use of org ships. Typically these will include Terrapins and Prospectors.
      Profit share
      Support & Rescue
      No micro-management. Ever.

      For those interested in teamplay, we envisage our standard industrial teams to run from 2 players upwards in an almost infinitely scalable fashion. We will likely recommend that operations take place within a two system radius of our mobile base of operations, so as not to stretch our support abilities too far, but we’re more than open to allowing teams and individuals explore opportunities further afield. The idea is that we can have any combination or quantity of teams working together in concentrated or distributed areas to achieve our strategic objectives.



      We specialize

      You might be wondering why you don’t see any security allocations in our team examples. This is because we plan to outsource most of our security requirements to a growing list of trusted commercial partners. This way we can focus our development and training on our core competencies, helping us to become the best mineral extraction and property asset management firm in the ‘Verse.

      However, for those of you interested in taking a proactive stance on safety and security, we will be establishing regular joint training sessions with our partners. This will allow them to become familiar with our operational requirements and limitations, and permit our members to learn combat techniques and awareness from the experts.

      It shouldn’t go without saying that we won’t require every minute of your life to be dedicated to the organisation. It’s a game at the end of the day and we don’t want anyone to feel limited by our areas of specialism.



      Careers

      Recently incorporated and in the nascent stages of growing its ranks, Xenosystems Exploration & Survey aims to become the leading supplier of geological survey and mineral property asset management in the ‘verse. To achieve this, we intend to develop a robust and driven workforce, built upon expertise and initiative.

      We are currently recruiting a variety of positions, from support staff right the way through to senior management. If you feel you have the required skill set and passion to contribute to the organisation, get in touch.

      For management roles, please use this contact form. For standard applications please use the link to our RSI org site.

      You can also contact us directly via Discord.

      It looks quite promising. Not the typical WD, but several dozen people who you play.
      Rather play it on uplay instead of epic, It's not on steam for launch.
