At first I build in a Corsair 400c with many other things, such as corsair fans, and an h100i cpu cooler. Now I am all upgraded to NZXT parts (or at least what I think is an upgrade). Whether it be the stunning x62, or the very unique AER fans, I've probably got it. Everything but the case it seems.
CPU: I decided the 6700k because I wanted a powerful quad-core processor that could effectively play games while at the same time handling as many tasks as I need. Not to mention how good it performs even when I only using its turbo boost to 4.2 GHz.
GPU: So first I started off with a 1060 dual fan from ASUS, which I think was somehow lugged down by some NVIDIA drivers being installed improperly. After that I had a 1080 founders edition which I just found to be overkill for my uses which are mostly gaming, and the occasion stream. Then that brings us to the present with this ASUS Strix 1070 OC, which just seems to be the best bang for the buck for what I'm looking for. Just in setting the ASUS Tweak software to performance this GPU will clock itself up to 2,000 MHz, and thats only using one 8-pin power connector.
CPU Cooler: The Kraken x62 has to be one of the most beautiful AIO's out there presently on the market with its unique, and stunning design. Downside is it pretty much cools exactly the same as the h100i v2 for $60 more. Also I would like to add that the first one I received, the NZXT logo was rotated about 5 degrees off center. Other than that love everything about it.
Case: This case has to be one for my favorite looking, and it functions as good as it looks. So much space everywhere, great cable management opportunities, not to mention the fan hub on the back so you can never run out of fan headers. Also because of the raised ceiling from the inside of the case you cant even tell I have a push pull setup going on for my radiator which is great. All that and it comes with a great mood/night light.
Motherboard: I originally started with an ASUS Z170-e. I had no problems with this, but one day I tried to remove a USB from the back of it, and it was so clamped down on that thing it got sent back with the metal casing of the USB still in the slot. This seemed to be a blessing because it meant I stumbled onto this white beauty, with that great ASUS quality. And oh did I mention fan headers? Because its got them. Lots of them. Love this Sabertooth motherboard and definitely would buy again.
Benchmarks were done with stock clock speed at 4.2 Ghz, and the OC setting for the Tweak software which brings the 1070 up to 1987 MHz.
