A Closer Look


Overview

The system as a whole looks fantastic. With the top, front and both sides having tempered glass covering, a huge portion of the system is clearly visible. This especially makes all that RGB lighting look fantastic. The lighting effects are nice, bright and vivid.

The front of the system has 3 nice large intake fans which, when the RGB is running, look absolutely fantastic. These are set behind the tempered glass and, in addition, dust filters which should help keep the system relatively dust free on the inside.

A view of the other side of the system again shows the tempered glass. While the ‘exterior’ side is a little less interesting, there are clearly a lot of components here which are clearly mounted well and compliments the excellent design of the chassis well.

A Closer Look

A look at the inside of the system clearly shows that this has been exceptionally well built. You are immediately drawn to the fact that there are no rogue cables. This excellent management allows for all of the componants to be nice and clearly visible. When you’re packing this much impressive hardware in there, that is definitely a big factor!

This system has loads of really nice components on display. These include the EVGA Nvidia 1080TI graphics card, the power supply, and, of course, the cooling system.

Cooling System

The cooling system is a custom design which has nice clear transparent plastic tubing. The design and components are entirely Thermaltake which, following a nice large chamber, lead to a 360mm radiator. If you recall the design of the front fans, you will also note that this radiator essentially has fans on either side which should massively help the processor handle that hard overclock!

20 min 3

The liquid chamber is roughly 6″ tall and for this design and chassis, fits in perfectly!

26 min

Even the pump block is very impressive with some nice Thermaltake branding to the centre.

Graphics Card

This system has a EVGA Nvidia Geforce 1080TI. At the time of writing, this is one of the most powerful graphics cards available and has also been moderately overclocked to try and squeeze a little more out of it. As you can see in the picture, this has been vertically mounted which not only looks great but should help promote better exhausting.

5 min min 1

Power Supply

The power supply fitted to the system is a Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Series. Running at 850 watts and including RGB lighting effects, this should be perfect for the build!

27 min

Memory

The FiercePC Imperial Storm carried 32GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. This RAM is RGB sync capable and overlooking the light show, has been moderately overclocked to boost performance. So, that’s 32GB of overclocked RAM!

22 min 3

Storage

This system carried 3 seperate storage devices. It firstly has a 500GB Samsung 970 EVO NVME M.2 SSD. It secondly has a Standard SATA SSD and finally it has a 2TB Sea gate Barracuda (Green) hard drive. In terms of storage capacity, you will not struggle for the lighting  pace of NVME, the speed of SATA SSE or the huge capacity of the HDD.

19 min 2

As you may have noticed in earlier pictures, the SSD and HDD have been mounted to the exterior side of the chassis.

RGB Lighting Effects

The RGB lighting is all synced together via 3 hubs fitted to the exterior of the chassis. These are, again, all Thermaltake branded and with the use of the Alexa app, fully voice compatible.

8 min 3

It can sometimes be difficult to put into words what RGB lighting effects look like in the ‘real-world’. As such, we’ve compiled a short video below showing the lighting in effect on a cycled pattern. Remember, that via Alexa or the Thermaltake software provided on the system, this can be fully customised to meet all needs!
