Description

Here is the 3rd pc that I have built but first uploaded.

The i7 7700k was bought from overclockers uk as a pre binned cpu which I have got stable at 1.34 volts on 5.0ghz

The motherboard is great and the bios is easy to work with but this is the second one I had as the first I had to send back after 2 weeks as it wouldn't work.

Ram is overclocked to 3000mhz.

The gtx 1060 I will soon sell to get a Asus 1080ti

The case is great. It is easy to work with and I have had no problems with it.

The hd120s have a switch so I can switch them off from the outside of the case( Shown in pics) when I don't want them on. I also have another button on front of case(Show in pics) to change the colour of them as I like to have different colours some days and don't want to take the side panel off to change them. The monitor is good but will get a 4k one soon to go with 1080ti. The radiator I used is great as it allows more room for pipes to go as you have the pipes go into opposite ends. The water block looks really nice and does the job but it does but quite a lot of stress on the motherboard and does tend to make it bend a bit but nothing major. I will probably redo the pipe going from pump to radiator. The computer runs completely silently pretty much all the time. Except when stress testing. It is only used for minor games most of the time so doesn't ever get very hot. The temps posted are using prime 95 Overall I am happy with it let me know in the comments what you think.

WOW! 1+!!! i really really like it! when you get the 1080Ti i rcommend getting an ultrawide 100hz monitor if you have to money for it but 4k is cool too.
