Description

Some sales were going on for these parts so I decided it was time to upgrade my computer!

CPU Cooler

Super quiet cooler, this is the go to if you have a few bucks to spare. Only problem I had with this cooler was installing it onto the motherboard and getting good contact onto CPU. Brackets that came with it were not a tight fit for the 370E (seems like a common problem for most motherboards) so I had CPU temps of 80+ on idle.

A solution to this would be to take the washers from the front fans of the case and screwing them behind the motherboard with the bracket.

Motherboard

I went for form over function for this one. Silver to make the NZXT case and white theme stand out.

Case

Beautiful design. Cables and components were easy to manage/install. Highly recommended case! Wanted to go with a White theme for Kakashi-sensei.

Had the same bracket issue with my Corsair H100i v2, seems like Asus motherboards are somewhat thinner than average. Cool build BTW!

Gorgeous build, +1 for sure. Any links/branding of the desk or wall-mount? Thanks!

I own the same Case and am thinking about buying nearly the same Setup that you got. Your Pictures got me wondering: is it still possible to run all 4 RAM Slots with the NZXT Kraken next to it? On the Picture Slot 1 seems to be covered by the Kraken. Is it just the Viewing Angle or am I right that Slot 1 is buried under the Kraken?

Just found a System running the same Board, Kraken and fully stacked RAM. My Eyes were wrong then.
