Hi everyone! :)
This build was based upon winning the Intel Core-i7 8086K through: The Intel® 8th Gen Core™ i7-8086K Limited Edition Processor Sweepstakes! I won the cpu back in June 2018, and received it October 2018. Since then, I've been saving up on buying each part paycheck-to-paycheck. Big shout out to all the winners.
Originally I thought about doing an all out RGB build with water cooling. But decided to go with a complete airflow build with a clean aesthetic.
An absolute beast! Big thanks to Intel for the sweepstakes.
This is my first time using the gigantic Noctua CPU cooler the NH-D15 and it keeps the i7-8086K nice and cool. If you want to run 140mm fans x2, you're gonna need low profile ram.
This might just be my new favorite motherboard. Great work on the UEFI, ASRock!
Purchased this through the Amazon 5 month payment period (through Prime) before it they moved to their own credit card cycle. Totally worth it!
Super easy to build in, and the build quality is great. I would totally recommend this case.
Works great! I was gonna buy the EVGA 80+Gold 750w G3 for $130, but saw the price of the Corsair and it was too good to pass. Plus it comes with included white cables, although kinda thin and not very streamlined (there are various intersecting lines that are fused together).
These Chromax heatsink covers bring out a nice clean look to your beefy Noctua heatsinks.
