Description

Mainly used for gaming Case looks amazing with the tinted glass side panel combined with the rgb lights from the mobo ram and gpu the only problem was that the case is slightly too small and i could not fit both 120mm fans on the h100i v2 as there was a clearance issue with the ram however still remains to maintain an 80 degree c maximum while running at 5ghz at full usage

Part Reviews

CPU

best i5 ever created, amazing performance at 5ghz and quite easy to clock up to.

CPU Cooler

one of the best AIO, easy setup, clean look, amazing performance even with only 1 120mm fan

Motherboard

looks great and even has an inbuilt pre set for 5ghz clock on 8th gen intel cpus with no issues

Memory

Ram looks amazing with the really bright LEDS, sadly not compatible with aura sync just yet but im sure that is to change

Storage

fast boot and performance

Video Card

if you cant afford the 1080 or dont need a 1080ti this is the best graphics card for 1080p 144hz gaming and 1440p 120/144hz gaming plus imo the best looking

Case

amazing case looks great easy to build in and easy cable management, no cable ties required just the use of the included valcro straps and youre all good to go, sadly just too small to fit a 240mm rad up top as it might clash with the ram like in my build

You might be able to find thinner fans to mount on the radiator.

there is the second fan clashes with the ram as the case is actually quite small but still at 5ghz the i5 wont top 85 degrees

Yeah, short of delidding the CPU I guess you can't get the temps to go down any further. What thermal compound did you use?

Not delidded also just the standard thermal paste on the h100i haha

I’d suggest trying Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. Can drop temps 5-10 degrees C.
