Phanteks 314ETG installation show

Please follow and like us:


A host computer installed for friends is mainly used for multi-screen office work. It strives for stable operation and has certain requirements for the game. As a result, it has been installed this time. Chassis chose fan 314ETG, M-ATX platform to ensure scalability while taking into account the volume and heat dissipation, solid materials, simple appearance. The platform is i5-8400 + B360 + GTX 1060, and the microsatellite B360M MORTAR has been specially strengthened in power supply and heat dissipation, which is helpful for long-term operation. In order to enhance the lamp efficiency of the whole machine, three HALOS RGB lamp rings are selected to enable the common fan to realize RGB lamp efficiency. Considering the stability, the air cooling scheme was chosen for heat dissipation, and the fan that is more suitable for the chassis was replaced at the same time. The graphics card also chose the micro-star Honglong GTX 1060 with stronger heat dissipation performance.

The installed demand is as follows:
1. It has good stability and can meet the requirements of long-term operation.
2. It can meet the needs of multi-screen office and need to connect 2 2K monitors at the same time.
3. The performance of the host meets the requirements of mainstream online games, and it is also necessary to ensure smooth chicken eating.
4. Try to keep the appearance simple and steady.
5. There can be some light effects inside the chassis.

The configuration is as follows:

Cpu Intel i5-8400
Main board Microsatellite B360M MORTAR
Memory Chichi magic light halberd DDR4 3200 16G (8Gx2 )
solid state drives Samsung 960 evo256gb
Mechanical hard disk Seagate Cool Fish Series 1TB
Graphics Microstar geforcegtx1060gaming x6g
Chassis Chaser 314ETG streamer silver
Radiator Chaser TC14S
Fan Fans f120mpx3
Lamp ring Fans halosrgbx3
Power supply Pirate ship VS550

Out of the box

Intel i5-8400。

Chi fantasy light Ji memory, can be said to be RGB memory cost-effective choice, as if there is no other better choice.

This time, the mainboard chose the B360M MORTAR of Microstar. The package is in black and gray color, and the front has pictures of the product model and mortar.

On the back of the package is the motherboard diagram and description of various features, with many functions.

List of accessories, including instructions, drive CD, dragon sticker, motherboard bezel and SATA cable.

The front of the main board, black and gray color matching, looks very full, but very low – key.

The back of the main board and the surface of the PCB were treated very cleanly and were treated with matting.

The number of mainboard interfaces is enough for daily use. Compared with Z370, USB 3.1 Gen2 is added. DVI, HDMI and DP interfaces are all available even if a centralized display is used.

The very large CPU power supply radiator is larger than that of many Z370 mainboards.

In order to realize the colorful RGB lamp effect of the fan, HaloRGB is selected.



On the back of the lamp ring details, you can see the independent LED lamp.

Wiring, in order to achieve a refreshing effect requires careful combing.
