Long time reader, first time poster.
I sold off my x79 system as I felt it was time to build my next long term PC.
It took a while to gather the components as I was waiting for the Phanteks Halos LUX frames to be released, as well as the Titan X Pascal hybrid cooler to come back in stock (I know I can use the 1080 ti one, but it says 1080ti on the face which would bug me to no end!).
The PSU, GPU, speakers, monitor and case are the holdovers from my x79 build.
The 805 Infinity is a real pain and has terrible airflow for such a heat generating system. I used small 3mm hex nuts on the screws connecting the infinity panel to space it out a little bit. The small gap improved temps dramatically.
I should have gotten another case for this system but I initially had the stock GPU cooler on because there were no plans to rerelease the Titan X Pascal hybrid cooler, and much thinner Noctua fans (the e-loops are 29mm), and the halos LUX frames weren't announced yet.
By the time I learned the RGB fan frames were coming out, decided to get e-loops AND that the hybrid cooler was back in stock I already had everything installed fine in the case. But adding thicker fans, fan frames, a hybrid cooler and an RGB hub really made things tough!
Under stress my CPU used to hit 91C, now most cores stay below 85, and some below 80, and this is with an all core OC of 4.6Ghz. The GPU hits between 59-67C depending, but it's still way quieter and doesn't throttle unlike when it was on the stock cooler.
The fan frames and case RGB strips are plugged into the Silverstone RGB hub which is then connected to the RGB header on the mobo. So all the fan frames and LED strips show up as one unit in Aura, and then the RAM sticks.
edit: I used this to mount my card vertically: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999380 It fits 100% perfectly in the 805i and the riser cable it came with was the perfect length.
