    i7-8700k runs insanely hot even at stock speeds ?

    Has it been running at these temps from the start or did this happen over time?. i would start by re-applying thermal paste and make sure the cooler is seated the right way. this is not normal. i suspect bad contact with the cpu cooler.

    Good airflow case recommendations

    Corsair Obsidian 450D. has real good airflow and big open holes in the case. not that fine mesh that some cases use.

    Computer boots to bios every time

    This can happen if the battery on the motherboard is going empty. then it can't hold the BIOS startup options and boot's to BIOS right away so you can adjust the settings.

    You Really Shouldn't Delid AMD's Ryzen 7 CPUs

    For a 2ºC decrease, fuck no. AMD did a good job with thermal solution on this chip. give it a proper cooler and you are done. i don't even think lapping it would do any better than delid. and it gave just 2ºC decrease, so no it is as good as it gets there.

    Team Blue vs Red

    My i7 5820K @ 4.4Ghz and GTX 1070 will do for now in my computer. but i am upgrading for my sister and a Ryzen 1700X and a GTX 1060 6GB will probably be the choice there.

    ASUS STRIX RX 480 runs hot, is that okay?

    You can also make your own custom fan curve profile. But the 480 card does run a little hot normally.

    How important is the sound your tower makes to you?

    Thats exactly the sound from a well build computer.. a gentle humming sound. Big fans, low noise.

    How important is the sound your tower makes to you?

    Certain noise in the room like from a computer can affect your mood. high frequency makes you tense. the brain hears this and reacts to it. even when you are not aware of it. and shit.. im not even talking about coil whine ! shit that sound hurts.
