This and CPU cooler upgrade and monitor form my second upgrade
Next Upgrades may be getting a M.2 Drive like a 250GB Samsung EVO, and 2TB segate Firecuda. and 16 more GB or ram (no like I need more ram now but I want the white DDR4 that Hyper X finally release of the Fury line up) For that I wont post it here.
If I post again it may be if I do a third Build and hope to do in the future. (It is fun)
I choose the Captain 240EX white to mach my color scheme, and replace the Cryorig H5 universal no because it wasn't good, but fans were making clicking noises, so I send it back, pay $10 more and got the Captain.
Also cooling got better. Since I OC the 6700k to 4.6Ghz at 1.330V, and keep it with +90 offset to no maintain 1.330V all time. On Cryorig Max Temps were around 6hrs Prime95 V26.6 around 80~84C and Same with Realbench Stress/benchmark.
With the Deepcool I got around 7~10C less. So it was cooling it better
Seems to be stable when stress testing. I manage to stick the stock fan of the case at the bottom to get a 360 intake to have a bit more of air on (fresh as for the rad will pull the hot for the CPU. so the fresh one keep the GPU not that hot). It also allow me to put the 140 fans that I had on the top for exhaust, with that I got a really quite PC as all fans are running like a 10%~15% at Idle.
EVGA GTX 1070 has been OC with Core clock +215Mhz, and Memory clock +550Mhz, with max temps on 75C
4/21/17 I reapply my thermal paste on the GPU because temps were rising to much 77C max didn't like that. So I use the paste that came with the thermal pads for the VRM that EVGA added. make sure I applied correctly after cleaning it carefully. Now temps are giving max of 68C which I feel happy since that was the initial max temps I used to get before I opened the first time.
I was able to achieve +235 and even +255, with +260 it crash the bench marks and Core clock go to approximately ~2120, but come back to ~2050, 2080 so I lower it to +215 on Core. Memory haven't try getting it higher but that was pretty good where I got it on.
Also replace the 24" 1080p monitor for 29" ultrawide 2560x1080p monitor. Since even when googling I multitask a lot I decide to go for a larger one. So far I really like it as I can get more things on screen without sacrificing size that much. As for 16:9 videos or game that dont support 21:9 I wont mind. Height of this is like the 24'' 16.9 so I can ignore the vertical black bars and think of it as a 24" monitor. But, when game or movies support it looks really good.
Really nice Cooler, good looking and keep temps better than Hyper 212 and Cryorig H5
No many review about the monitor on PCPP, but overall really nice 29" monitor 21:9. Not everything is scale for that aspect ratio, but for multitasking, and games that support it is really nice IPS monitor.
