Wanted an open loop-cooling system but when the person who normally do my builds did not come through I started doing my parts research which lasted about 3 months however after seeing the complexity I shelved the idea (to visit at a later date) and decide to go AIO and that took another 4 weeks of research, since this was my first ever build. This system will be use for everyday computing with a little photo editing and formula one and possible flight sim gaming.
CPU why not the the i7?
AIO Originally was going to use a NZXT case so wanted to pair it with the cooler and i fell for the look of the infinite glass and most reviewers gave the kraken a good review.
M.2 - boot drive 1TB - current storage 500gb all files and raw pics from my old computer.
R6 - great airflow and different ways to configure the interior as well as later on i can do a water loop. ++++
drop an optical drive in the system cause i still have CD/DVD
push/pull config, one fan in the basement, one in the rear and 2 up top
Future upgrades will be 144hz monitors and water looped
Let me know your thoughts and anything you would do different.
