Description

This build started with the GPU. Soon as I saw this little Devil I just had to have it. I didn't really know what I was going to do with it, I just needed it.

My first thought for it was to upgrade a 390x. I have been selling a lot of parts lately and the 390x pricing is just crazy, but this Devil ended up being so large that it wouldn't fit in the 390x case. I really didn't want to do a case swap, so good excuse to build a new PC.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

This cooler has mixed reviews, but I got a pretty good deal on it. Got the RGB cooler and 5 RGB fans in a combo from Deep Cool for $140. It's cooling great, max temps 60-65c with the OC. We'll see how it holds up.

Memory

Great RAM. Loaded the OC profile and sync up to asus aura right out of the box. Doesn't get any easier.

Video Card

Great temps with a decent OC. The bios is locked to 1.2v so all I could get for now was 1667 core @ 1.2v and a 925 memory clock @ 1.15v. This card does have 3 bios settings so I will be modding one of them later. Temps while benchmarking averaged 51c with a peak of 62c.

Case Fan

These fans are amazing value. Half the price of other similar fans. They are super quiet. They come with a 4 fan hub, RGB header cable, an RGB controller, and an RGB splitter/extension. My latest build using the captain 240 and these fans has added Deepcool to my list of brands when looking for parts.

I have heard the same, mostly in their original 240ex (non rgb). I have also heard their customer service is phenomenal if they do leak. Hopefully they have made changes from the original, I believe they have. It is cooling really well, better than my h80i gt. Though that is comparing 240 to 120. It was going to be this one or a kraken x52 and this one was too good to pass up with 5 rgb fans included for the same price as the x52.

@ 1.6v still doing lots of stress testing and monitoring temps
