i saw about the same performance tbh but for me, this was a quality & longevity decision. also, a little irresponsible
nope! checked with cust service before ordering
Well thats good to know. The pc is a work of art, nice job.
My understanding about liquid coolers is that the radiator should be above the cpu block - do you have any performance issues with it thusfar?
I got an M2 off a massdrop purchase, so ill let you know how it works compared to the EVO when i put it into a smaller media center build.
At the time, i was more focused on single core performance in addition to wide support for intel architecture. I considered overclocking but I have 2 issues with it: A) The difference I would see between overclocking and stock performance is negligible for the gaming I do and B) overclocking is never worth the strain on the parts - I intend to keep the rig closed without having to worry about upgrading for at least 4 years, or sooner if I had elected to add overclocking capabilities.

It def would have but the h170 works and changing boards would mean having to reinstall the OS and the programs I have. If it was a new build, z270 all the way for sure.
I appreciate it, thank you
Just about to upgrade my haf evo build - with both your cpu cooler and card, is there enough space for a 200mmx30mm fan above?
