This PC is for gaming on WQHD @ ultra settings. So far it performes very well.
When I got the 7700k I was a little shocked by its high temps even under water. According to Gamers Nexus many boards deliver way to much power to the CPUs, something I wasn't aware of. So I decreased voltage step by step till the point where the 7700k ran @ 4.5 GHz @ 1.184 V. By doing so I was able to decrease temps from around 75°C under load to 60-65°C (depends which core) under load and hours of gaming! Big win I'd say.
Probably the eyecatcher here is the modded Eisbaer 360 Lt, which got some nice thick tubes and reservoir for the looks and some extra performance. I also modded my old desk by putting a bigger acacia plate on it for some extra space and quality. The rest of the plate is used as two shelves on the wall now. The mainboard has all the features I need only the look of it isn't very pleasing. That's why I took the I/O armor of an old mainboard, modded it and put it on the new one, also a M.2 cooler from another board. Simple and effective. Also the GPU been changed a little. Realized one of the stock fans made weird sounds, removed both stock fans and put on two 120 mm HSP fans, decreasing temps from 72°C to max 65°C!

clarification Yes, I'm aware of that bubble in the loop :/ I just changed coolant a few days ago, it takes some time till all the air finds its way to the res.
