Extra 100 is a lot, geez... It also doesn't help that the mining craze is driving up prices.
The EVGA backplate is stock.
If you OCd then how much ghz would u get out of the cpu ur using?
That's a good question. I'm running stock clocks currently and have no plans to OC probably at least for this year. This chip is plenty fast and I prefer a cool and quiet system for now.
Did u put the Noctua fan underneath and also does the rgb fans show thru the mesh at the front?
Nevermind, I forgot that u put the rgb fans at the back, not the front.
The Noctua is at the bottom front, cooling the HDD and also bringing in some cool air for the GPU. As I have the radiator and non-RGB fans in front, barely could see any RGB from the front mesh.
Can you change the lighting of the NZXT logo?
