The cpu is able to be overclocked to 5.1 stable using the s36 aio cooler. My future plans are to custom water cool the cpu, vrm and graphics card that I am planning on changing to a msi 2080gaming x trio using a bitspower waterblock so that asus aura and corsair link are the only two programs I need the change the lighting colours. I would appreciate any suggestion people may have that could help improve the build. I am aimming to build a pc that can handle 1440p gaming and a vr headset. I enjoyed the build and have already built another pc for my friend the would love a new pc.
Update note: i have just fitted the commander pro to control the lighting for the 9 corsair hd fans and 4 led node pro strips in side the case. this moment I am using the commander pro to control all 6 if my intake fans and using the cpu fan header and aio pimp header to control the 3 exhaust fans and pump. this combination has really reduced the noise of the fans ramping up and kept temperatures of the cpu with in a good margin 27 idel and web browsing and 60 while gaming. at the moment ark survival evolved is one of my most played games. I mod every time I play and any overclocking I do is pushed to its limit while playing ark. I have had cinibench and heaven test the graphics and cpu and confirm its stable, switch to ark and crash.
I have pulled back the overclock to 5ghz as I am not seeing any advantage compared to 5ghz this helps with temps and I'm not pulling as much power.
