Description

Took me like 8 hours to build this properly.

With the parts picking i was with idea of Performance per dollar, im my tough everyday gamer does not need more than that.

The Asus Motherboard and graphics card are magnificent, they really well compound together. Very quiet on load .

Case managment: 140mm on the top and lower plate and 120mm on back.

Updated 10/11/17

Changed the position of the H115i from top to front case, and there is very good bump of performance, because the Graphics card size there wasn't enough fresh airflow to radiator on top position, with that combination of parts im recommend this move.

My Room Temperature ambient is 30° C.

On the way to the case: Two Noctua - NF-A14 industrialPPC-3000. Vertical graphics card stand. *Black&White power cables.

Part Reviews

CPU

Hell of Chip , i managed to overclock this guy to 5.0Ghz on 1.43v and 103watts ,failed with silicon lottery, but i love it anyway.

CPU Cooler

Pros: Wide area of cooling in my word worth the penny for advanced builds. Cons: The fans are good , but not good enough, these are airflow fans, and for these kind of radiators there are needed Static fans like in H100i, i know why Corsair not including these type of fans on this radiator because there will be a price bump soo yea... I recommend to buy static fans to get more juice. See the i7 7700k on 1.43 core voltage with radiator h115i stock fans i have temps read of 80-85°, in near future im going to change fans to Noctua AF N14 3000rpm , and i will see how it goes, FOR THE SCIENCE !

Storage

I bumped this SSD to the system for generally Windows files and applications. Basic need for PC these days.

Storage

Insane speed of reading/writing im very satisfied from the cash i putted on this HDD.

Video Card

The best graphics card performance per dollar for now , I managed to overclock with Gpu tweak II to 2126 Mhz on Core and 11000Mhz on memory. Running silent on max load with good temps.

Case

Pros: Great room for airflow inside the case. Cons: there is not much room to maneuver on the back plate, there was needed force to squeeze all that cables even i spend couple days to find the best combinations back there, and the 140mm fans are crapppy, for greater performance upgrade them.

Power Supply

Very silent and great performance, doing his job well there is not much to say.

Nice build. My build is inside an Obsidian 450D, as well. Such a great case, although I am tempted by the small footprint, tempered glass, mid-towers.

Also, I have my H100i on the top as an exhaust, my 4790K hits 72 degrees peak in Cinebench with a 4.7 GHz OC. I don't think moving your AIO to the front is gonna help much, if any. Those front 140s on the 450D move a LOT of air.

I moved the radiator to the front and that was good call because the Graphics Card stopped more than 75% of air to reach the top and the radiator was only heating up.
