Description

I made some updates to my rig that I built during Black Friday. I was waiting for the NZXT Kraken X52 to become available in Canada and also to go on sale. As soon as I got the price alert I said shutup and take my money.

So here I am now, I've swapped out the H60 cooler for the Kraken X52 and added 4 Deepcool RGB LED strips with two separate controllers so I can have dual zone lighting control. And oh man is the Kraken sexy...

I'm extremely happy with what I've got and I'm finally done. (The wife's happy about that).

I installed two LED strips on either side of the radiator and one at the top of the case hidden and one under the GPU .I love how the LED strips look around the radiator, it even shines onto the white Phanteks fan at the back too. Best of all I can seperate zone colors and effects.

I also experimented with Overclocking and managed to get my i7 running comfortably 4.6Ghz at 1.36V using just the one step ASUS Bios overclocking. Eventually I'll try manually adjusting it as well

I uploaded lots of pictures but honestly doesn't do it justice. I catch myself just sitting and staring at my rig some times.

Here's a quick video: https://youtu.be/1sPYxoz4NKA

Hi what happens if I buy something for $0 on this website?

Not sure what you mean? If you're referring to the $0 on my parts list those are things that I already had before building

Oh, you mean when it's not available as a price. Add it to your build then set a custom price yourself

I see you have 3 exhaust fans and two intakes. Do you notice substantial dust build up because it seems the inside of your case would be negative pressure. And how are your temps. I was under the impression having a radiator up front as an intake would blow warm air onto your GPU and into your case raising it's ambient temp.

I actually don't get much dust build up. Only when I open up my case lol. Other wise temps and airflow is actually working out quite well
