Honestly I would say that Corsair and NZXT are the best AIOs on the market, however I personally would rather go with large air coolers at this point, and would only go back to liquid for a custom loop. If you're wanting liquid cooling though, I would highly recommend either Corsair's or NZXT's

It has worked perfectly tbh. It definitely wasn't the best on the market, but it worked really well despite being choked by the S340's restrictive front panel

The 3600X in my current system came with just a normal, non-RGB Wraith Spire

Not OP, but the 1070 in my old build only had an 8pin power connector as well, I was under the impression that all the 1070s only had 8pin power

I doubt it would, with my experience the p400 is a great case. If all you're going for is gaming though, I'd spend more on the graphics card and get a ryzen cpu

Sure there are better heatsinks, but the Wraith Spire cooler is actually really good. It's more than enough if the main focus is gaming

It doesn't. Lower-clocked ram has practically no observable impact on performance of any kind. Some applications work better at higher speeds but not many

Why the 750ti instead of a 1050ti for about $10 more? The 750 is a good card, but the 1050ti is still much better for gaming.

If you ever do decide to paint it, just make sure you put on plenty of coats to ensure it doesn't scratch. That's my only mistake, its scratching off. Just don't rush it and you'll be fine

Have you thought about painting the orange plastic on the keyboard? I have the same and it's a relatively easy process

Why the Cryorig H7? wouldn't it have been equally as good to use the stock cooler since this machine is a NAS?

I never thought about how the arm would affect it like that, that's good to know. I've been thinking about getting one when I upgrade my monitors, but I'm hesitant now that I think about that.

There's still hope for the overclocking, Non-K cpus can be overclocked a little bit.

Is there a reason you keep the monitors so far apart form the arm? Most people keep them close togeter. Love the build though, +1

I thought about doing that a while ago, but I didn't have a chance to due to limited desk space. If it's functional, I like it

How is it having that monitor up and to the side like that? It's an unusual setup

I get the struggle of the lower-end graphics card, I went like that for months. The reward of the upgrade down is worth it though. Great looking build though! +1

One of the best ways to hide that USB cable from the H100i is to wrap it to the left and up along where the 8 pin CPU power cable is. If you wrap it close you can hardly tell it's there

It's more of a silver unfortunately, I thought about getting that model but I want to stick to my strictly black/white themed build, which is why I was wondering

Love the color scheme, is there plans for sleeved cabling? Amazon has some cablemod cable extensions for like $40 which would look amazing in that build

How difficult was it to take apart the heatsink to paint your gpu? I'm thinking about getting an MSI card and doing the exact same thing

Does the silver fit in well with the black/white theme? I'm thinking about buying that exact same graphics card but I'm hesitant because of the color scheme

To stick with budget, I think you did an amazing job with the parts list. Love the color scheme. There's some great sleeved cable extensions from CableMod on amazon for only like $40. They'll make it look great

If you could put some orange accents on the case it would really help the "Portal" look of the PC. It looks good though

Is there a reason for the reservoir being half full? I've only seen videos/pics of custom watercooling, and every time it has a full res.

Honestly I don't think that a push/pull setup is needed. My temps are great with only a push setup.

If it wasn't for my case I could. The cable management bar sticks out in front of the radiator just enough where that isn't possible. Even if I could, I probably wouldn't because I love the clean look of the radiator fins instead of fans.

Why did you choose the 120mm radiator instead of the 240mm version of this cooler? The 120mm leaves the bottom of the case looking empty.

Otherwise, amazing build. I absolutely love the color scheme of your build. +1

That's my exact same question. And what kind of impact, if any does that have on temps?

Is there any reason for choosing the normal S340 instead of the Elite version? I think that the tempered glass would really show off the beauty of your color scheme

They're extending the ones in the PSU. They plug ivy the ends of those cables and you're set. They work with all power supplies which is nice

For cheaper custom cabling, I'd recommend just getting a basic cablemod extension kit form amazon, the cablemod website has freakishly high prices for shipping. The extension kit I got goes for around ~40, which is a lot cheaper than the custom configurator

The wall color was picked by me when I was around 6 years old, for some reason my parents thought it a good idea to let a child pick the colors. They're getting changed back soon hopefully.

I'm definitely wanting to do a custom loop at some point, however I'm not sure when I will be able to do that. I'll need to save money before doing a custom loop.

I'm already bottlenecking the **** out of my CPU, I'd rather get a high end GPU to eliminate what I can. If I upgrade, I wanna go all out. I'm fine with the 760 for now

Honestly I just kinda picked things that were the same color and homed it'd look good. The entire build looked kinda hideous until I added the custom cabling, if it wasn't for that I doubt it would have made featured. If you ever have a chance to buy them, get them without thinking. You wont regret it.

I'm planning on swapping the radiator orientation and the graphics card soon. Im probably gonna get a 1080 since the prices are dropping with the release of the 1080ti

I'm planning on upgrading eventually, but don't quite have it in my budget right now. I'm probably going to get the Gaming X edition and paint the majority of it white

I'm planning on doing that eventually, but I really wasn't wanting to have the Corsair logo upside down. When I flip it around I'm planning on painting the silver cover white and not having to worry about it

I've been thinking about that one but I'm not for sure how the silver would look against the pure white and black.
