    Didn't find it on 154 - and btw this board surely needs a function to simply insert "XXX page" and switch there, it was a pain trying to get there in the first place. If you can, please repost, I'd like to see it.

    Nice watercooling, I like the tubings and color!

    Not too happy with having to mount the fans between the case and the front panel to make the rad fit as it restricts airflow so will change to a slimmer 360 in the future and have them behind the stock filter.

    Still rocking my good ol' 4 yr. old build. :rockout:
    Strong as a tank, still not ready to show its age (mainly use it for playing Killer Instinct, SFV, and NFS)
    System specs are in profile :D

    For the price/performance I paid from this, this seems to be a damn fine cooler. :toast:

    And I can't even believe how easy this was to install. Took like five minutes (without manual since an used cooler), to be honest this was the easiest ever after stock coolers. :)

    "put the backplate to place -> hold it with one hand and put the plastic things, the cooler retentions and screw them firmly -> do it with the other ones -> screw the cooler into it's place -> attach the fan", even for a blonde like me, it was as easy as drinking a beer. :toast:

    Finally "finished". the case and cooling is done, next step is some higher clocking hardware :)

    I had 3 goals for this project, longevity, ease of maintenance, and high thermal capacity. Met all 3 of those goals and spent a lot of money along the way :p

    heres the meat and potatoes; 3 wires, 2 thumbscrews, two quick disconnects for easy maintenance

    Thermals are great, GPU sits at around 50c and CPU around 40c while playing battlegrounds. :peace:

    Quick update to my system (specifically my 7700k).

    When I purchased my 7700k I was never happy with the temps. Thermal throttled with a DeepCool Captain 240EX (though the pump turned out to be faulty), mid 90Cs with a Corsair H80i v2 and mid 90s again with a Noctua NH-D15S. This was all at stock too.

    Tried a different case InWin 301 -> Fractal Design Define Mini C. Same problem but ran about 3-5C cooler albeit noisier.

    My retail shop said it was running within specs so it wasn't faulty so I decided to contact Intel directly. Had a really helpful customer service person. They promptly replied to all my emails and also called me to chat about the problems/overheating I was having.

    Anyway, DHL Express turned up last Wednesday afternoon to pick up my old CPU, shipped to Bayan Lepas, Malaysia and a replacement was sent out upon arrival and was delivered to me today(Wednesday) morning. Crazy fast delivery times from DHL.
    Super happy so far and the chip is running 20-25C cooler than the old one even with a 4.8GHz overclock now applied.

    My replacement cpu :)

    Once I got an upgraded AIO on there I set it at 5GHz, upped the cpu power target to Asus optimal whatever, and haven't looked back. Load is in the 80-90C range in OCCT and gaming is in the mid 60s.

    New CPU, old GPU. Looks funny since it's just the lenght of the PCI-E slot. :D

    Can't edit my previous post anymore. What's the limit when it becomes uneditable?

    Anyway, did some work with LED stripes (those blue CableMod stripes can be chained, found those little things that chains them) and found a better spot for Phanteks' RGB stripes. Also a little more work with cables.
