This is an update of my previous build. I now have my system in its final state until the CPU needs to be upgraded which I expect will be 2019-2020. My previous build with more details can be found here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/gT8KHx
Since that build was originally posted I have added the following:
*Dell U3415W 34.0 3440x1440 monitor
*Zotac GTX1070 Amp Extreme graphics card
*960gb OCZ Trion 150 SSD
*140mm Thermaltake Riing fan for exhaust
*Thermaltake 200mm Front intake fan
*120mm Thermaltake Riing fan mounted to mobo tray.
*Custom black Plexi
*Removed optical disc
Using black plexi on the motherboard tray rails has essentially split the build in two. The bottom of the system houses the HDD and SSD cages, PSU and 3 Riing fan hubs. The top is for everything else.
I ended up with a Zotac card instead of my planned Gigabyte card due to cost. I could get the Zotac with Jet.com discount for $400 whereas the Gigabyte 1070 Xtreme has stayed around $450-$460. This necessitated having to purchase an additional sleeved 8pin PCIE.
Overall, I’m very pleased with the build except for the orange PCIE slots on the mobo but there isn’t much I can do about that now.
Removing the optical drive allowed me to put the 200mm intake fan back in, currently there is one 120 and one 200mm fan up front. I was able to move a 120mm directly to the mobo tray to feed into the Phanteks PH-TC14PE and across the RAM modules and other components. This also cleans up the build and I didn’t use the drive anyway. CPU never gets over 48c on the hottest core and GPU has never exceeded 53c, a huge improvement in temperatures at much lower fan speeds.
