Description

Well Finally finished up the build. Converted everything over to the NZXT H440 Case, my thoughts/points at the below.

The Corsair 115i Pro is a fantastic cooler, I idle around 29/31 on all CPU Cores, however, note this case will not support the 280mm RAD up top...Sucks cause I spent an hour mounting fans and radiator only to find this out.

The 1080TI Hybrid is fantastic, idles around 22c and during games hovers around mid-40s / high 40s. Currently, I have the 2 x 120mm fans up top with the radiator shooting air out. You'd think it wouldn't work but my temps are great so I may leave it for now or put the GPU radiator going out the backend.

I spent about 80% on delid tools for the CPU but the damn thing never hits above 47c during gaming and I really just don't see a point of delid only to have it spike higher afterward, dunno I thought this thing would get a lot hotter but that 115i really does the job.

Overall fun build, but don't think I'll be doing another build for 5 or more years, it's honestly just getting to expensive to do this, no longer are the days when you could do a good build for 1600, now ever part costs 300 or more :(.

Well, hope you all enjoy the pics and keep building out there!

How LG monitor performing with i7 8700K and GTX 1080 Ti? Better to go with a full HD monitor instead of system is powerful enough to feed pixels:)?

Hey sorry about that. I love my LG, it is flawless, no hiccups, no dead pixes, literally nothing wrong with it. Now it is only like $550 bucks, what a steal!
