    from completed build Azalea: the Ultrawide-capable rig

    This was a weird, but specific choice. One of my goals was to make sure this was a very quiet system. I thought long and hard about water cooling, especially a fully sealed AIO system. But, there's not a real performance or less noise-based benefit so I ultimately settled on the giant radiator/fan. It seems Thermalright is mostly marketed in Europe, so they don't seem to be well known in the US. However, the design competes with the Be Quiet! Dark Rock, Noctua and other more expensive models. I should be able to overclock well with the cooling this provides. Unfortunately, the width of the Macho X2 required me to remove the essentially redundant rear case fan. Temps are low. FPS are high.
