Description

It's been a while since the last time I've put a pc together for myself. The last one I had (a 6700k with some goodies) got stolen when thieves cleaned my house. I'll probably exchange that 500GB mechanical drive for an ssd, but this was an spare I had bought some time ago so I decided to use since I'm not that crazy about space anymore (used to had 4TB+ of drives in a pc, but in the end I've lost all my files more than once, so I don't really care anymore) In the 6700k i had used the s340 case from NZXT, I must say, the case is beautiful, but I hate their paint job, if you tighten a little too much a screw, the paint starts to crack. So for this one I got the DG-76 from EVGA. A great case imho, but I'm a little disappointed on the airflow. I wanted to keep away from AIO watercooling, but ended up getting the weirdest air cooler I could find, the Fryzen. A tight fit for this case, but in the end it worked out. I have no idea how to overclock this processor, haven't done overclocking since the beggining of the last decade (How I miss my Athlon XP 2200 Thorton hahaha) but I'll try to learn how to do it again.

I can really see this cooler going perfectly with Corsair Dominator Platinum, Just a thought though.

Maybe some other grey/gunmetal kit would work too. I thought about that, but these are hard to come by where I live. Maybe next upgrade hahaha

I do love that cooler. Like Haynosekia said it would be grate for a X-Men build. I am thinking about doing a Jean Grey Build this would be great. +1

I could see people using this cooler for their X-Men themed build or maybe they already had

Clean, nice and neat build. Very nice +1

I agree with you, it could fit an X-Men themed build easily, hahaha!

Thanks, it's the first time I used sleeved cables and dealing with them was harder than I've imagined, but overall I'm pleased with the result!

$70 is pricey for a 500gb HDD, right?

Ah, for the prices. I'm not actually in the US so they may not apply to what I really paid. I'll try to find the closest values once I figure out how to do it (I'm still figuring out how to use this website, sorry)
