This is a nice setup, but isn't that PC a pre-built from CyberPowerPC? Is that what you mean by the AIO cooler being "stock", as in it came pre-installed in your system?

Did you have to do anything special with the cabling from that PSU? Very interesting and impressive build IMO. +1

That would stop those fans from fighting with your graphics card as well. That's how I would do it.

I believe you are getting dust because you are running a negative pressure configuration with your fans. The following video will explain a little better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a12aDCxrcts

The GPU is the weak point of your system, and the rest of the system can handle a much better GPU before bottlenecking. A 1070 would likely at least double your performance in most games at 1080p. I wouldn't go much further than a 1070ti, or 1080 though unless you are getting something that you are planning on migrating to your next system.

I'm hoping they let me take my mobo, ram, and CPU from my work PC when they retire it, so I can do the same thing for my son. This is some really nice work you've done here.

Maybe get a used 1070? That's what I'm running right now, and it handles anything I throw at it 1080p-60 maxed. What kind of OC did you get on that chip?

I love this kind of stuff. I've been looking for a deal on a similar board and CPU for my sons scrapyard PC for a while. If I find a deal like the one you found, I would snap it up right away. Good job on the price to performance. +1

Something similar to this has been on my to-do list for quite some time. I've always loved the concept, cause having a full desktop in the living room can look weird, and most HTPC cases are kind of boring.. I like how you did the theme.

I've never thought to incorporate finger duct into a build before. That looks like it works quite well. I can think of a few situations where it would be perfect. +1

Yeah, if you cleaned it out, redid the TIM (maybe better cooler too), fresh OS install on an SSD, new power supply, and maybe a used RX 480 or new RX 570 (anything above that range of GPU would just be bottle-necked by the CPU), this would actually perform pretty well. However, it might be passed putting money into this system (unless you are good at finding good deals on used stuff), and if you can build something new, do it.

Excellent price to performance on this build. I love it when people can make use of older hardware like that. This is so similar to a build I did from FB marketplace, and some old parts I had laying around. I wouldn't normally mess with AMD FX stuff, but I got the CPU, board, and 212 evo cooler for only $50 CAD, from a lady cleaning out her sons closet.. I had a Define R5 case, EVGA 650W bronze, GTX 770 4GB, 120GB SSD, and 8GB of Ram as leftovers from 2 other builds. Slapped it all together and sold it for $350.

+1, cause I have very similar set up. 6600K, 2x8 @ 3000 ram, Z170 board, 650w gold PSU. The main difference is I have an MSI 1070, and a 360mm AIO in an open air case.

This is a very balanced system. You got a really good deal on that 1070. This should hit 144fps at 1080P, on pretty much anything you throw at it. Good job +1.

I have a basic build in one of these cases, and that was hard enough.. I have no idea how you were able to fit the rad, fans, and gpu, in that compartment. BRAVO! Now that I know it's possible, I might give something like this a go in the future.

That's it! I'm tearing apart my Thermaltake P3 and Define R5 builds, and redoing the cable management. I thought I did a good job, but this shows me that I certainly did not. Bravo man. I'm also a big fan of using Velcro over zip ties. +1 and congrats on the feature. Well deserved.

Asus PG279Q ROG Swift or Dell AW3418DW if you want a big ultra wide. You can use the monitor picker on this page to find monitors with the features you want as well.
