Case: Caselabs S3/ Pedestal with custom watercooling and Dual loops.
Buildlog for those interested. You will be able to see the pain that was inflicted mentally due to having problems with hardware and literally RMAing everything in the case except for the watercooling. Stuck with it though :)
For anyone thinking of watercooling: Stop thinking and put on your scuba mask. Welcome to the party!
This will be my 10th Build logged on Pcpartpicker. Kinda happy about that.
Main purpose of the build was for my fiance' and her schooling. She was using my SMA8 to do homework... and well.... that wasn't going to cut it. So I opted for the case that was purchased well over 1.5 years ago due to Caselabs discontinuing the actual model. So before they completely shut down orders, I was able to stack some cash and order the case in full white + the Pedestal for optimal cooling.
7700k I have clocked at 5.0Ghz for 24/7 use. Multiple tests were run to affirm stability. Ram in on XMP. Core V for the overclock is 1.27 core V. (I don't like pushing 1.3core v for a fulltime overclock.
