Hello this is a very special build that myself and two good friends put together. We had a lot of fun to say the least but there were some set backs for sure. The build was a process of 2 months of research and about 4 hours of build time. After that i sat down for about a week to get everything set up and bios correct for the overclocks that were stable. Working with the Thermaltake Core P3 case was super easy once the right screws and modular pieces were identified. A lot of the screws are not labled from the box but if you try one and it does not work, try another. Also working with the GPU bracket was infuriating to the point where we had to look up a youtube video. However this could be our inexperience with this particular case. Another pro tip would be to install the power supply and bracket first, it is just easier this way.

Final: The Coffee lake generation runs hot. VERY HOT. We have this on 240mm watercooler and it will hit 90c on an IntelBurn test at 100% load for about 20 minutes. I understand Delidding is an option and we have looked into the Silicon Lottery website. On any game i run however there is no heat problems or stuttering/frame loss etc. This chip is amazing to say the least. The overclock was fairly simple to achieve but it did stress me to the point of looking up another video guide. The Ram/GPU/RGB aspect looks great. I wanted to go with the rainbow unicorn fluff hype until a color theme was decided upon. Eventually it will be the CS:GO Assimov orange/white theme but that is in the future so for now we got the full spectrum. The thing i would have to recommend over ANY other component is the Dell 27" monitor. This thing is 1440p at a 144hz refresh rate with Gsync. I cant stress enough how much this monitor owns. Also from an honest review, the 1080 GPU will handle this resoultion and 144fps in-game to match the refresh rate. I would of returned it if this was not the facts. All in all we are very happy. I will add my useless social media links now. Thanks! GGrimshaw
