Description

What i wanted from this build was something that could play the majority of AAA Titles while keeping around 100FPS at 1440P, I went for the Ryzen 5 as all i do is gaming and very rarily use a VM so 6 cores is more than plenty for me. i picked the 1080ti used as it was £550 compared to the 2080ti which is £1200 and i dont think the difference between the two is worth £700, i may consider buying another 1080Ti if i can find one cheap as i have always wanted to do sli (yes i know it sucks but its cool... OK). The Hard drive was intersting i probably only need about 2TB but something made me buy a 6TB for £120 which is a decent price.

Kraken G12 The kraken G12 is very simple to install and knocked my GPU down to about 25c idle and i never see it exceed 55c while playing games. However the Rad on The H55 wouldnt fit between the Monstrous CPU Cooler and the case luckily i managed to buy a LP Noctua fan that exceeded my expectations for how quiet it would be

Love the aesthetics but personally, from experience, I would have opted for 16 gigs of ram especially at a high frequency for Ryzen. Other than the top radiator looking slightly lopsided it looks great. Also what kind of games do you plan to play. +1

He does have 16GB, it’s just really slow.

Yeah one of the screw holes on the rad is really loose, Ive been playing SOTTR, FO76, MGSV, Division 2 and probably Metro Exodus

How is Division 2? I personally enjoyed 1 very much. Probably going to pick up 2 next week.

I actually haven't had any problems with the RAM running at 2400Mhz, I could OC it but I don't think its going to make a huge improvment

Ryzens benefit from faster speed. Usually 3000mhz is a sweet spot and 3200mhz is also a considerable amount of improve, although more for workstation rather than gaming. Under 3000mhz there might be a handful FPS loss (of course, not a brainer if you don't mind slightly decreased FPS), if that unit overclocks close to ~3000mhz then it's definitely worth oc'ing or at least enabling that speed through XMP profile.

As long as it overclocks fine, no one cares lol.

How did you use a Corsair AIO on the NZXT Mounting bracket?

The NZXT Kraken Works with nearly any Aio that uses The asetek pump, there are some exclusions

What was your solution to cover up the red wireless adapter? I am trying for a white build and the asus pce-ac68 is the only thing stopping me. I want to go with this card because it has rave reviews.

I just put white electrical tape over it, but it's pretty easy to remove the heatsink so I imagine you could paint it
