I dont have the PSU fan on even. It hasn't had a problem. Consistently under 500 watts though. Unsure of how it would do at higher output.

Crazy to think you still have enough space for additional radiator support. That case is literally as tall as your desk. Well done build sir.

60hz 4K monitor though. Unfortunately the 4k 144hz panels from Acer and Asus were delayed to 2018.

I have had no issues with the 650 watt with overclocks. Thought about upgrading it, but recabling the whole build... Didn't sound very enticing.

I have an internal tube in place to prevent splashing/bubbling. It does not cause turbulent flow whatsoever. And the performance gain would be nominal at best for returning flow to the inlet compared to the reservoir. Of course EK recommends that, but it isn't exactly practical for every build unfortunately.

It's a pump/reservoir combo. The EK REVO D5. And I may try another coolant down the road.

This is accurate. Reason being is that the surface area of the radiators is going to be the same regardless of how the loop runs, hence the same heat dissipation regardless of the order.

With this case it is truly the only way in which I can run a dual radiator setup to keep the tubing clean and not crossing over. As for the wireless card, I didn't want to use the large Wifi antenna that comes with the MOBO, hence the TP LINK wireless card (plus it is better speeds in comparison to the onboard wireless. As for the SSD's I acquired them at very different times, hence having two instead of one large one. Originally didn't have the $$ for the 500gb ssd. hence the two seperate ones. And Distilled water yes, no coolant because it took me 4+ hours cleaning out the gunk, buildup, and discoloration from the coolant I had utilized (for only 4 months).

Had to sign up for the Newegg alert when it went in stock. :)

I tinkered and added and changed parts in and out for quite some time.

Hahaha trumpet actually. Keeps it off the carpet, less dust, better airflow.

Excellent. 28C on both at idle. Under high gaming load both get up to from 48-60C.

Had the mobo/cpu for little over a year. And at the time got a crazy good deal on it.
