Thanks! The coolant is EK-CyroFUled Solid Clout White premix. It's been three weeks thus far and no issues. The coolant looks really good. I got it off newegg when they were having a sale, but you can find it on amazon as well.

Thanks! I got a great deal on the GPU from a friend who needed some quick cash, so I decided to splurge on the RAM. Never had four sticks before haha, but in hindsight you're probably right; should've got slower RAM and a 2080Ti instead.

Nice clean build, love it. I have the same case and it's beautiful!

How are your temps with the GPU compared to traditionally mounted? I was thinking about mounting mine vertically, but was concerned with the clearance for cooling.

RGB is great because it can be any color you want. Doesn't have to be unicorn puke.

Ah the corsair 230T takes me back.. I had that case 8 years ago. Gotta start some where man. I'll take that over a pre-built any day. Nicely done.

I like this, very nicely done. NZXT makes some pretty products, also that case is nice. So many builds to do and so little money haha.

The CPU won't start to throttle until 100 degrees Celsius, so you're good. Look at what voltage you're using, because some of those auto OC programs use an outrageous voltage. Check out this link for a nice in depth guide on intel temps; http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1800828/intel-temperature-guide.html

Unfortunately Intel's TIM is crap and runs hot unless you delid your CPU. Nice build though!

Yeah, that coupon is great! FYI, if you use the custom configuration, it takes a bit to get the cables. It took a month to get mine.

Your CPU is a beast just stock so I feel ya on not overclocking. Good thing about an AIO is you can always upgrade in the future if you wanted to. The Corsair pro coolers are super quiet, My H115i pro's pump is a lot quieter than the H100V2 I previously had.

Yeah no worries man, happy to help. HW monitor is also a good program to monitor hardware temps/CPU loads and the like.. Yeah, some games are more CPU intensive than others for sure. I OC'd my CPU to 5 ghz and it runs like a champ. =)

You can either get cables from cablemod or ensourced, I'm sure there are other places, but I know those two seem to be the most popular. I went with cablemod since I got 20% off their cables with my ASUS mobo and am happy how they came out. Always account for a little bit of slack when measuring the cables though. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up.

No worries man. I know it bothered me having an open front so just figured I'd share the knowledge. After all, sharing is caring. Let me know if you need a link to it.

Thanks man, I really appreciate it! =) It took some planning to figure out the best way to route the cables, but was not too bad and the back of it isn't a mess of cables either. It definitely helped getting custom cables with lengths I needed to cut down on extra cable mess. It does get bright with 6 LL120s and 4 strips, but it's nice and comforting.

The software I use is iCUE (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/icue), it only work with compatible corsair hardware of course, but it's nice to be able to monitor system temps, fan speeds as well as all the RGB lighting from one piece of software.

Nice build, I like! I have the same case and it's beautiful, same mobo too. Nice cable management. They have a front PSU shroud cover for it too and it's like $5. Definitely helps hide the cable mess, my case didn't come with one so I decided to buy one.

Yeah, no worries. :)

You made good points. There's pros and cons to both. Multi tasking and games made in future that utilize the extra cores then the 8700k is for sure the winner, but I felt like in my case the 8600k would suffice.

I intend to do a build every 5 years or so I'm not worried about hardware becoming obsolete.

The cables are Cablemod ModFlex. I used the custom configuration to choose colors and lengths.

GPU backplates that come with the card from manufacturer serve a few purposes; aesthetics, extra rigidity (this is debatable) and keep dust & fingerprints off the PCB, but the one I have is pure aesthetics.

Thanks man! I thought about putting LL140s up top too, but decided to keep them all LL120s. I do have ML140s on the rad in the pull config.

This post (https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/7kc4b4/i7_8700_vs_i5_8600k_for_gaming/) pretty much made up my mind. I mainly use my PC for gaming and that's about it, so I don't really multitask with it. The extra money didn't seem worth it to me since I can just overclock the i5. =)

I really like it. It has an aluminum frame so it feels really nice, it is a little on the loud end if you care about that sorta thing. I went with the cherry mx brown switches. It has an USB pass through and dedicated media control keys. It also has a key puller if you wanted to switch out key caps. This is my first non-razer keyboard and happy I made that switch.

Thank you for the kind words, appreciate it! I am, love how the build came out. I agree about the GPU, one day I'll bite the bullet and just splurge on a badass GPU! =)
