At it again with a new personal build.
Using old carried over hardware and some new upgrades. I upgraded from a 6600k to a 7700k purely for editing and rendering. Took a while for me to finish this build as I've been so busy with work and it was so hard to find the time to do it. I had to take a day off work to build, drive to ikea to buy a new desk and to set it all up. I got rid of one of my monitors so that both me and my partner can share one desk to save some space and I have to say running one monitor only isn't that bad, thank the gods for alt-tabbing.
Took me longer to set this whole up because, my dog Bambi kept wanting attention.
I was going to run the 4 ML fans on the rad for push pull config but I couldn't seem to manage to mount the NZXT AER P fans which came with the x52 onto the top and back exhaust fan slots. They came with these rubber grommets to put into the fan but i couldn't securely screw them to the mounts so I just used it as the push on the rad fan config.
Running push pull, and getting a lot better temps with the x52 as compared to my previous h100i v2, got to push the 7700k to 5.0ghz on pretty good temps. The ring rgb is so freaking awesome!
Had to take the cable cover off the case to fit a push pull config on the rads, you can see in the photos. However this just took me longer to do the cable management since I pretty much had to hide what the cable cover hides, luckily there was just enough space. THE NZXT ELITE IS THE ABSOLUTE BOMBDIGITY, and ive worked and built in so many cases, I gotta say the elite is on the top of my list right now.
Im upgrading to a 1080ti, either a strix or and ICX when I get a bit more funds and hand down the 1070 to my partner for her pc. / which cant be seen on the photo's but its on one of ikea table FINNVARD trestle that has a shelf on it.
The Strix z270e's RGB on the coverplate is cool, however the white is not a true white and ends up being baby blue. which sucks :(, the onboard wifi is great though! Getting the same speeds and connection as when i previously had it on wired.
Anyways have a great day everyone & thank you for taking the time to check out my build!
