Description

Hello everyone! This is a build I did for a friend for his ascension! A broad rationale for his parts is that he wants something with enough CPU horsepower, space, and wattage for expansion and future upgradeability.

Overall, the few amount of hiccups here were that we were sent stripped out mounting nuts by Deepcool, who we reached out to and sent us new ones shortly.
Also, the LED PCB for the Enthoo Luxe case was burnt out, so we had to request a new PCB, which they obliged.

Altogether,. build went very well. Tempratures very low, framerates awfully high!!

I'm at 4.5ghz at 1.3V with it.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Very aesthetically pleasing. Mine shipped with stripped mounting hardware, but this is fantastic for the price and I love it

Case

Fantastic case, mine came with a burnt out LED PCB, but I emailed them and they send me a new one.

Power Supply

Kinda short cables and not very good looking, so if you don't care about that, it is fine

I swear every time I see build like this it makes me jealous and kinda depressed but they look so cool and yours is no exception and the LEDs with the aio made it fit together. Epic build

Probably just at the time the blacks were a little cheaper!
