TT View 71 Build... and beyond?

by xM0RTALx

Description

I've been working on this one for a couple of years. Everything was new except for the graphics card, which I finally got around to replacing as an early Christmas present to myself. As you can imagine, it stays nice and chilly in there with (3)TT 140mm intake fans on the front and (4)TT 140mm fans for the top and rear exhaust. Toss in the TT 360 Floe Riing and it's rare that temps get very high. Slightly OCing the 3.4 GHz CPU at 3.5 GHz 24/7 and temps rarely see above the mid 30 degree Celsius range.

My only complaint with my build has been with the View 71 case. Where you screw in the thumb screws on the exterior for the tempered glass is extremely wonky. They like to go in crooked or sometimes not at all. After struggling to get things back in place after the first hardcore cleaning, I've been very meticulous when it comes to taking them out so that I know which one goes in which location. I've found I'm not the only one that has experienced this pain. Others have expressed this issue and videos can be seen online. Also, where the thumb screws are used for the graphics card and such strip very easily. A couple of ports needed to be rethreaded and a couple more on the verge.

Upcoming Upgrades: Better Cable Management, Replace 10000 RPM drives with (2)1+TB SSD's, Add (2)1TB M.2 SSD's, Replace existing TT RGB 850W PSU for TT iRGB 1200W PSU

With the newly obtained Corsair collection (Dark Core RGB, Void Pro RGB, ST100, and MM800 Polaris) the wife got me for Christmas, I'm thinking about making some changes.. may end up being another build actually. Corsair Obsidian 1000D maybe?

Very nice build! I really like what you've done with the look and overall performance.

My only critique is this: if you are only going to overclock that 1700X to 3.5ghz, it's better to just leave it to stock settings. At stock settings you will enable XFR and get boost speeds of up to 3.9ghz, especially with your cooling setup. With a manual overclock of 3.5ghz, you are basically locking your CPU to that speed and reducing your clocks by 400mhz from stock when the CPU would normally boost.

At stock settings your CPU will likely run faster than 3.5 on all cores anyway, I have a 1700 and the base clock is 3.0ghz but out of the box it ran at 3.2ghz on all cores with boost speeds of 3.7ghz.

Only complaint: 10000 rpm is super overkill and overpriced. Could've spent the money on an rtx 2080 and a way faster SSD with more storage. Hell, you probably could've gotten a better processor and motherboard with the extra money.
