Chassis: Inwin A1 MOBO: ASUS z270i CPU: i7-7700k 5.0ghz @1.29v AIO: ASUS Ryuo Memory: Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3200 GPU: ASUS GTX 1080TI 011G Fans: 4xCorsair LL120 RGB: 4xCorsair LED strip Back plate: V1 Tech Monitor: ASUS PG348Q..1440p, 60HZ(OC 100hz) Keyboard: Corsair K70 Silver Edition Mouse: M65 Elite
This build was a big pain due to the AIO and Corsair Node Pro (for fans and rgb strip) requiring USB 2.0 headers which this mobo do not have..
02/22 *I have delidded my CPU and replaced the toothpaste with thermal grizzly conductonaut. Currently running smoothly at 5ghz @ 1.29v. Temperatures do not past 65c degrees while gaming vs my previous 4.8ghz 75-80c.
02/27*I have tried numerous times to get my CPU to 5.2ghz while staying under 1.4v.. but failed. However I was successful to stay stable at 5.1ghz @ 1.325v and temperature increase by 1-3c Benchmarks/tests used: AIDA64, burn test, cinebench, 3dmark, real bench.
V1Tech backplate: I didn't notice that the back plate only emitted light from half of the strip. Contacted V1tech support and issue was solved. Had to adjust corsair link to two RGB strip since the strip provided on the plate is more dense.
By far the best CPU I've had in any of my builds. Runs extremely hot, but delidding and replacing the paste for liquid metal solved the issues.
Great AIO, but pricey. The addressable RGB on the AIO needs to be brighter. Other than that, it does the job.
Great motherboard... only issue is that it doesn't have 2.0 headers!!
Great RAM. works with aura sync and corsair link.
I love this card. Looks sleek and is very powerful. Will remain relevant for years to come.
Great chassis. Only issue is the PSU. IMO they should've included one that is modular that can also utilize the PSU cover.
Fan looks great. Should've waited for the LL120 White fans that has higher CFM and static pressure. Works great for chassis fans, but will be disappointed if used as radiator fans.
Love this monitor. Went from the Acer Predator 1440p 144hz (165hz OC) to this ultrawide beast. Yes i lost a great amount of hz, but it was worth the change from TN to IPS.
Love this keyboard. Does the job and it looks amazing! It was near impossible to find something that fits my station until I stumbled across this keyboard. Key response is amazing.
Great gaming mouse. Love the fact that i can customize my DPI in corsair link and sync the RGB with the rest of my setup. Only thing I didn't care for was the gloss. Wished it was matte white to make it less cheap.
Great headset for the price. The audio quality is great and surround sound!
Looks and feels great! I love the fact that I can wash and hang dry this.. only issue is that the mouse pad itself isn't white. It's more of a grey.
