First time building a pc! Small hiccups but when it finally turned on and lit up the sense of satisfaction you get is surreal! Plus it looks awesome. Haha I'm not done with all RGB stuff yet. Still need to sync up all the colors and everything but here she is!

Why waste your time with cheaper parts on your first build when you can skip straight to the top-of-the-line products where nothing could possibly go wrong...

Great build. Better then my first build

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks man! Yeah I figured I'd just go big since I came into some money. Haha

Electroman01 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Well I suppose I would have too if i had a lot more money for my build...

"first build" "Intel Core i7-7700k" "GeForce GTX 1080" well those 3 things dont usually go well together lol +1

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

lol I know. But I figured I'd go big or go home. XD

I think it's fine.. No difference in buying these and some other (cheaper) parts as far as difficulty. If you got the $$ go big or go home :-)

Nice build! Maybe get some cablemod extensions for the gpu, other than that, decent cable management.

Do you have any clearance issues with the x62 in the s340 elite? I was wondering as I am planning on putting a x62 in my own build to keep the temps down.

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

No. It fits, but the nzxt s340 has this indent for cable management that's pretty close to the radiator. It fits in fine.

What happend to that 3rd AER fan

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

I didn't need a third fan. Lol so I put it away with the other 2 case fans that came with it

you shouldn't have to use the gpu adapters. your psu has 2 sets of 6+2 pin cables that can plug directly to the gpu.

How is the noise level with the CPU Cooler?

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Quiet. It's not even noticeable.

Hey brother I am wondering what your gpu temps hit under gaming load in the elite?

pattont 1 point 21 days ago

So did you use the Artic Silver on the processor and clean off the NZXT Kraken X62 paste that's pre-installed?

SYNC IT TO OBTAIN PURE RGB GLORY. ALL HAIL HUE+ AND AURA

Eyyjay submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

YASSS! as soon as I boot up windows today and install all the updated drivers haha

blockbuster4664 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Rip, the most spirit killing part of building a PC is getting windows installed

blockbuster4664 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

At least after that you get to fool around in Mystic Light and CAM and find the perfect RGB configuration

Thanks master yoda!
