Your "bed england" is fine lolol.

JK, but in all serious IMPROVE YOUR CABLE MANAGEMENT. PSU is a little low, especially when you oc, so.

Not sure about your place of residence, but you could have spent extra on a 9700k/9900k plus a Noctua d15, and you woudn't have to buy thermal paste. Again, pricing may be different where you live, but I would still be happy if I built a powerhouse like that. Good job! :)

Hyper-threading allows the processor to use its resources more efficiently by enabling multiple threads to a core (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html). Hyper-threading is basically useful for large multitasking and heavy rendering/video editing. If you do these kind of stuff, you made the right choice with the proccessor (4 cores, 8 threads). If all you do is game, or do 1 task at a time, you could have gotten the i5 6600k, as it offers the same performance but without hyperthreading (4 cores, 4 threads).

I was going to ask what rez your monitors were at, but they clearly are enough to use the 1070's potential.

Clean your insides soon...you'd be surprised to learn the temp drops after cleaning a computer. I've read about people's rigs dropping almost 20 C just by cleaning it after a year.

Why 850 EVO?? A single 1TB 860 Evo is 150 dollars on Amazon right now. You could technically get twice as much SSD storage for 50 dollars less!

Also, by red RGB, do you mean the front case fans?

Yikes, that cable manegment is slightly questionable. Still a great build, but you could have gone 6600k, unless you needed the hyperthreading. Maybe throw in an SSD? And what monitors are you using?

AWESOME build, love the SSD and GPU, but a few things to note:

  1. Unless your motherboard manual states otherwise, you should put your GPU in the top slot.

  2. I personally would have gone dual channel instead of quad, simply for upgradebility purposes for the long run.

  3. You could have gone 80+ gold, as I don't like to take my chances with the PSU, but you do you.

This is actually very similar to the build I'm getting (https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NatoSato/saved/BcVfHx). Like, shockingly similar. The only big differnece is storage, but that's cause I got a crap hard drive from a friend and two ex. storages from a cousin's office.

AWESOME GPU, and a interesting case! Could have gone Samsung 860 EVO, but that's just me. You could have gone higher memory speeds with two sticks for the same prices, but that's only if you care about that.

Overall, SOLID build!

LMAO true dat. Its up to you, but you can get some lower temps, and its pretty much neccsasry for overclocking IMO. Check how much you can stably overclock ur CPU, as some chips just have a chance to be amazingly good (i.e 5.2 ghz at 1.3 V I read someone's post on Tom's Hardware saying they got these speeds without delliding). This lottery term is coined as "silicon lottery", hence the website name. IMO if you can hit 5Ghz below or at 1.4V, and your Cpu remains below 75C under load, I'd say ignore delidding and carry on.

Thumbs up on the liquid metal, but that is also because any other thermal paste is better than the trash that Intel used. I'd recommend Dr. Delid (https://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Computer-Skylake-Coffee-processors/dp/B06Y5DXWX1). Pretty quality one, and it is "Painless and Easy".

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. This thing will blast through pretty much anything. Did you consider dellidding? It can reduce temps and is especially important for 8700k as they used pretty ****** thermal paste between the die and IHS. I've seen people testing their CPU's and their temps dropped by 20-30C just by dellidding.

I'm going to get a Aorus 7 soon...but I checked the manual here http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_z370-aorus-gaming-7_e.pdf, and nowhere does it mention it comes with a free AIO cooler. Also, this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHDf-QlpnVo unboxes the whole thing and I don't see any AIO cooler. I'm still a noob at this, so maybe I missed something. Was this some promotional deal, or you got it from a friend/previous build?
