Description

Priority for this build is serious power for gaming that will last a few years and also powerful for photo/video processing.

Biggest headache was choosing the case and cooler. (fractal design define series vs NZXT vs corsair carbide series)

Chose NZXT S340 Elite as I decided that i don't need full top access so an exhaust fan on top is enough. Quality of the case is top notch, the tempered glass panel is gorgeous and the cable management is excellent. Highly recommend using reusable cable tie (i got mine from bunnings).

The stock fan on the Corsair H115i is "okay" with custom fan profile on lowest rpm, but if you want silent PC the fans need to be replaced.

How easy is it to OC your 1700x to 4.0GHz? I'm thinking about getting this motherboard with the 1700x.

Very nice build!

Are you okay with temperatures? How about fps?

I would like to go 1700x - C6H - Gskill 3200 16 gb - gtx 1070 zotac or asus.

My cpu cooler is Arctic liquid freezer 240 double sided fans and I want to use all for push and pull config, is there enough space in case for it?

Nice build! Mine is very similar. Were you able to get your memory running at 3200mhz?
