Honestly, only do that if the Scythe is on sale or you just have 2 noctua fans lying around. A 120mm dual fan from noctua will probably outperform my setup at 2/3 the cost. I really only did it for the looks.

As for temps, they're golden. I have since moved on to a 1600 12nm in this build (Zen+ for the better single core), and at a 4.0 GHz OC, I have not seen temps past the mid 60s while gaming. Also, I was not able to overclock that 1700x to a point where temps were horrible before reaching instability, but that's probably motherboard limited as well as chip limited. Its overkill if you are a gamer, or really anything but trying to break records.

Final verdict: dont do this if you move a lot, I'm constantly scared of it snapping off from it's own weight lol

Edit: also, for "max temps" id just go with that 77 deg C I have in the details, it's been a while since I had that 1700x. I use IntelBurnTest for stability testing

I was looking at your builds for the computer you were talking about, if it is Genesis it looks great!

Yeah, the shroud definitely stops the bottom fan from being efficient in any meaningful way. People really like that 3 fan in the front look though. Thanks for the suggestion! (although this PC already got sold!)

Could you upload more pics of the PC with a little more light? It's hard to see picture two. Also, I've never tried liquid cooling before, is it hard to set up?

What are some games you play, and how is that 1060 serving you? Once I got a Gsync monitor, I was really surprised how well mine performs in modern games!

Are your noctua p12 and p14 reduxes loud without the antivibration pads? I haven't tried them without the pads. Awesome build!

Super impressive for a build that only requires a 150w power supply!

Ultimately I did move the GPU up, but because the cables were a little too close to the GPU fans for my liking. Also, I had to tape the HDMI/DP/DVI slots back up because this case, unlike the previous case I used (Fractal Design Focus G) has you break the slots off, rather than screwing them in. Looks pretty stupid, but I guess that's my fault.

Performance wise, there wasn't a single difference aside from temperature, so I'm pretty sure I did not plug the GPU into the "wrong" slot, this motherboard just has 2 16x slots.

Actually, I read it wrong. They are both 16x, 2nd port can only run in 8x if I'm using 2 GPUs in SLI. So, there shouldn't be any performance difference if both slots are 16x, right? My benchmarks before and after moving slots seem to be equal as well.

Looked it up, turns out my motherboard states the second slot is pci e 16x, but it can only run up to 8x. I'll switch it back up, sucks because it looks nicer this way.

I like this new format on PC, but everything is a little large on my phone...
