After gaming on a Cooler Master HAF X for 7 years, I decided it was time for a change... a big change. I considered many cases and chose the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 (black) to anchor my next gaming PC.
I had originally planned on cooling this machine with an EKWB MLC Phoenix but decided on a big air cooler at the last minute. I'm very happy with the NH-D15 and Noctua fans. I have not delidded the i7 8700K; temperatures shown reflect the CPU in its factory form.
I drew some inspiration from builds by SLOWION and TheBananaBandit and finished it just in time for Far Cry 5 in March 2018.
The SanDisk X400 for my game library was carried over from my previous PC.
Intel Core i7 8700K, 47x on all six cores with 1.210 V, 2666MHz XMP with 1.2 V
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, factory clocks
The CPU & GPU temperatures were measured at 24.5C ambient (76F).
