I like the way it looks and I've had no issues with it. BIOS is easy to navigate. Overclocking is a breeze. The rear IO is pretty insane and there are more features on this thing then I'm ever likely to use. I would certainly recommend it if it checks all the boxes you're looking for.

Large for a mini-ITX enclosure but good radiator support. Girlfriend picked the case, I did the build. Revised it a number of times. Really like the case. Would definitely recommend it if you like the look. It's a little pricey, or was, but I would say it's worth it.

I may end up changing it as I don't intend to leave the ball valve where it is and I'm considering getting a vertical GPU mount. I rather liked that the existing bend stood out from the rest of the build but I would agree that it doesn't really match the rest.

I considered it. I honestly just liked the way the exaggerated bend looked. I wanted the cables to come up a little more in the crook there on the right but it worked out alright.

Great machine but the monitor seems like an odd choice. A 3440x1440 21:9 widescreen seems like a better choice for gaming and two separate monitors seem a better choice for multitasking. This 3840x1200 32:10 just seems... uncomfortable.

5/7. Absolutely love it. Can't imagine how you got that filled up and I don't see a drain valve anywhere. Seems like DDC would have been better then the D5 as you're certainly fighting gravity. The third reservoir seems pretty unnecessary (not that hard line water cooling is ever really "necessary" to begin with so I guess that isn't at all the point) but it looks great!

Not sure what you're asking. I was responding to WiteX7's comment. CPU bottlenecking occurs when the GPU is trying to feed too many frames to the CPU. My entire point was that bottlenecking should not be a concern as it only comes into play at extremely high frame rates (or in certain titles that are incredibly CPU intensive like Ashes of Singularity). Your choice of CPU was perfectly fine.

CPU bottlenecking primarily occurs when the GPU is trying to push more frames then the CPU can handle. For 60Hz that CPU is fine. For 144Hz? Not so much.

Razer makes some fine products, also some incredibly unreliable ones. I've been buying nothing buy Razer and Corsair peripherals for years and Corsair has better software and more reliable hardware (from my experience). I'm not knocking Razer at all, I do (mostly) love their products, but Corsair makes some killer peripherals.

Will 100% not max out that PSU. That said, PSU's operate most efficiently around 50% load and I personally like a fair amount of overhead. If I was going to skimp on something it wouldn't be a PSU, but it's certainly enough for the parts.

What cables!? I can't see anything in these pics except an old iMac!

Also, that 1080 Ti is pretty much mandatory if he's actually trying to hit 144Hz in 1440p on any remotely demanding titles.

Beautiful build. You put a lot of thought and effort into that water loop for a GTX 1070. How does it perform pushing all those pixels? I can't imagine it can reliably hold 100 FPS in most games. I've got one on water on a 1440p 16:9 monitor and even overclocked it usually can't hit 60fps in demanding titles.

Having the radiator at the front and pushing cool air from outside the case through it will likely lead to lower CPU temps but higher GPU temps. Not a horrible thing.

AI Suite has given me nothing but trouble on one of my systems. That piece of software is incredibly frustrating...

Not personally a big RGB fan but it's a solid build! Few questions out of curiosity though... Did you build this a bit ago and are just now posting? (Reason I ask are the following questions) Why the i7-7700k and not an 8th gen chip? Why the Samsug 960's and not the 970's? This is a pretty high end build for a bronze rated PSU. Why not go with a Gold? I suppose the obvious answer to all of these questions is just that it helped shave some dollars off the top.

Solid build! I would think a next gen 1180/2080 would be beyond overkill for 1080p/144hz. Might want to bump up the monitor to a 1440p/144hz if you're spending the extra on a next gen card.

Your PSU is pulling air from the bottom, is it not?

Good clean build! Pick up a ~500GB M.2 for your OS drive when you can and use that 860 Evo for your games ;-).

That PSU is ridiculous overkill for what you got going on there but you didn't pull many punches with this system so I guess it follows.

I never quite understand this question. The 8600k and the 8700k perform almost identically in gaming benchmarks with very few exceptions. If the primary use case is gaming then this is the perfect chip.

Steve Burke from Gamers Nexus summarized his initial comparison of the two chips by saying "An i5-8600K, for a person who is primarily playing games, is more than adequate when compared to an i7-8700K. In most instances, ignoring special use cases like livestreaming via H264, production tasks, or 144Hz framerates, an i7 would be excess spending. The i5-8600K’s high frequency and core count make it fully capable of gaming at its own similarly high framerates, and significantly more mobile and future-looking than the 7600K was."

Seems like the bought the right tool for the job. Upgrading for the sake of upgrading snowballs quickly. Why not an 8086k? Why only a 250GB SSD? Why an HDD?

The 8700k wouldn't have given much of a performance boost and it would have cost him $100-175 CAD more. Personally, I would upgrade the SSD capacity before spending the extra on the CPU.

Other reservoir can be seen in picture 7. It's right behind the green one. You can see the same mounting bracket used on the tops as well pretty clearly in some other pictures. I see two DDC pumps at the back as well and that case supports another 360mm radiator at the bottom behind the one visible. It's a dual chamber case.

So I've seen a number of YouTubers do reviews on this case (Kye/Bitwit and Paul from Paul's Hardware) and I don't for the life of me understand why every build (including yours) has all four fans exhausting. Would it not make a lot more sense, and drastically reduce temperatures, to have the rear fans as intake? Did you try this configuration? Seems like relying on negative pressure alone to bring cool air into the case is going severely impact your temperatures, as you seem to have discovered.

I've used it three times total now since launch and every time it's gunked **** up terribly after a few months. Just switched to some Koolance UV fluid. All of the YouTubers I've seen talk about it have had issues as well. Good luck to you, though! Maybe you have the magic batch.

Highly advise against PromoChill VUE. It clogged up my loop pretty bad. I cleaned it thoroughly and bought another bottle of it after doing some research and being assured it wouldn't happen again. It did. It's great looking stuff but it falls out and separates and clogs things up pretty badly.

Doesn't matter if his GPU is in the first slot or not. Both will operate independently as x16. There will be zero difference in performance. That fact aside, there's virtually no performance difference with a GTX 1080 on an x8 slot versus an x16 slot.
