I will write a more detailed description later but it runs cool this is also my first build and I will get 100 to 110 fps on pretty much any game at max settings.
Why did you get a water cooler for a i5 8400, which can’t overclock?
Because he has a Z370 motherboard. Look up "Non K overclocking" for more info.
I thought the nzxt one looked nice to be honest plus I made $150 in tips that day so why not?
Damn, you really should have went with a b360 and a $20 aftermarket cooler, and it'll still look good aesthetically. You really should have went with a better psu because you'll regret it later on. Otherwise, nice looling build +1
Thanks I was gonna get a air cooler but I decided to just get the liquid one since everyone says it looks nicer. Also thanks for the tips gonna have to keep that in mind the next time I upgrade it or build another one.
why spend 130 on a liquid cooler for a locked cpu, more than you spent on storage and almost as much as your mobo and ram... total waste imo if you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing cooler then at least get an unlocked cpu ffs
This is my first build and I really didn't know anything about over clocking and I really didn't want to mess with any of that I just wanted something that could play games at a high fps on high settings.
