Description

I'm in love with computer?!... lol this thing is just great. i5 is overclocked to 4.6 ghz @ 25-60 C... The H55 keeps up with it just fine and if i ever decide to water cool the gpu, i have room under the other rad for another one... although i might dip my toes in to custom hard tubes by that point.

Took Amazon about a month to get the gpu to me :( guess they didnt realize the 1070 would sell like hotcakes :)

GPU is set to the OC mode in gpu tweak 2... was gonna manually do it, but i just dont need to. lol

im also using an lg 29' 1080p ultrawide (2560x1080) @ 75htz

let me know what you guys think!

Very nice build. I love seeing a Strix card given a good home. The build is great. Definitely a +1 from me bud. Feel free to check out my rig. It's constantly changing so any feed back is appreciated.

The back orders on the 1070s is no joke. setup is legit

Wow, what a huge GPU! :O Love the lights in the case. Can the GPU change from glowing red to purple, or is that just the lighting in the photo?

I find it funny that your water pump is upside down, lol. My boyfriend's is the same way and whenever I mention it, he just shrugs and says that that was how he put it in.

yep the LEDs on the card are rgb so they can be any color. I have it set to cycle through all the colors.

ya i wanted the tubes out of the way so that was the best position for it. and theres no pump struggling noise so it should be all good... i also plan on putting a sticker over the logo, just havent thought of what yet...

That lighting is amazing. I've only seen rgb on keyboards, mice, and headsets so far - didn't know that a GPU could shift its colors.

No, don't put a sticker on it! Personally, I am partial to Corsair's logo, and love to see it lit and glowing on other PC builders' computers. (Mine does not glow. Neither does yours... Sad face.) Is there a way to flip it?

sadly not with the h55 :( but i think a white ROG logo would look nice... or storm trooper helmet lol
