To feed my addiction, i have once again upgraded my computer... whoops.
I wont go through my parts selections because i did in the previous build here. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/sZmG3C
I will go through what i upgraded and the custom kraken mod. I found a great deal here on pcpp from a user selling old mining R9 290X's for a low 375. Me being a huge deal hunter i couldn't pass up that price. The only catch was that it is a reference card. I thought maybe it would be ok and plug it in for a while to find out that even when playing easy games like WoW and League of legends the card was getting up to 90 degC and throttling. That obviously wasn't acceptable. So i looked through my options and the one i liked the most was the kraken G10. This also meant that i needed a new case to fit the liquid cooler in for the gpu as well.
I went with the 300R which was a little risky because it isn't made to have space int he front for a CPU cooler, but with some small modding it ended up that there was space. And plus i loveeed the look of the case, the front panel especially. I picked up a H55 and Kraken G10 on sale at newegg for only 75 bucks total.
The last hurdle for this build was the VRM cooling. I had bought some small vrm heatsinks and slapped them on there for about a week. I wasnt happy with those vrm temps because the small heatsinks were enough to keep them completely cool. So i ended up doing a mod to the old reference air cooler from the 290X. i got the mod from this thread on OCN.
overall mod went well and it was fun. Also i did a custom blue paint job on the tx650 psu and also the kraken G10(this was before NZXT came out with the blue one :/ lol)
