Description

First build was in Thermaltake Versa H21 case, which when i bought the 1080ti does not fit in. I purchased TT Versa J21 (not J24 - as not listed in pcpartpickers), and changed from 240 AIO to 120AIO.

CPU Ryzen 1700 chosen as it was cheaper than the Intel option at the time. Great for video editing & my usage. saved a few bucks from buying 1700x , 1800x as i was able to OC to 3.8ghz easy. helped to save money from me buying Ryzen 2000 series, 3000 series i dont know tho.

CPU COOLER 120mm AIO mounted at back as exhaust works best on this case. Tried to mount 240mm AIO at front as intake/exhaust, both does not work well when GPU is on load, everything gets hot.

GPU Overkill for my usage as of now. Underclock it to get overall temperature of below 55c (CPU & GPU). At stock setting, Idling at 38c, max temp on load was 70c. Underclocked , idling at 38c, max temp on load was 55c.

CASE Is actually the Versa J21 (not listed in pcpartpickers). Cabling management at the back is quite ok. Unable to mount 240mm AIO at top due to RAM height. Overall worth it.

MONITOR Dual 1440p QHD Dell u2515h daisy chain thru display port work as USB hub for mouse, keyboard & mini speaker.

POWER 650W semi modular PSU. hoping to change to fully modular one soon & cable extender. backed up by UPS

Looks great, but I would swap out the mustard cables/use cable extensions.
