RAM is in the wrong slot. 2 and 4.

Digging the blue glow on it, though! :)

If you are just going for an aesthetic change, I would suggest just a few things.

  • Custom PSU Cables (Cablemod)
  • Paint/Stain the desk - If you are going for a white/black theme, a white, black, or nicely stained desk makes a HUGE difference.
  • I would (personally) lift the monitors up a little on that pole. It will be better on your neck, and I think it looks better.
  • Fiddle around with your RGB lights on your peripherals. Find a theme with the lights that will compliment the set up as a whole.

Other than that, I think your setup looks pretty great! +1

NZXT's CAM software. It is used to control the AIO's pump speed and lighting. It can also control fans, but I plugged mine into the mobo to let it control them instead.

Great build! But your fan on the back of your case is facing the wrong way. Air will flow the direction of the information side of the fan. Other than that, everything looks clean!

..... So, I just got a new router the other day (A Netgear Nighthawk) and it had me install software to control it so I don't have to use the web. It was using 15% of my CPU at ALL TIMES!!!! I just uninstalled it. My processor dropped to 34 degrees instantly. Crisis averted!

I also used conductonaut. And before delidding, I was at 34 on 4.7 GHz. My max temp never goes above 70. It did before the delid. It almost seems as if it averaged out in the middle of both temps before delidding.

How did you get such a low idle temp on your processor? I just delidded my 7700K and had it at 5GHz but the idle temp was about 50 degrees. I ended up dropping it back to 4.8GHz just to get the idle temp to about 40 degrees...

That fixed my issue! Thank you for the input! I had no idea what Frame Scaling was! Now I know that it should not be set to 5/2! :D

I don't know what exactly it is set at. He says it is maxed out, but that could be a "maxed but this setting is down one step" answer or an actual maxed. I am unsure. I haven't seen his settings in person since we don't live together.

But that would make sense about the frame scaling. I will try that out tonight when I get online. I'll let you know how that does! Thanks!

With PSUs, if you have extra power leftover, it is actually more efficient than if you have just enough. For example, in my rig, I have a 7700K and a Strix 1080ti as well but am running a 1000W PSU. Even at full load, the fan in my PSU doesn't even have to turn on because it doesn't use enough power to heat it up enough to make use of the fan.

games like Bioshock Infinite are max graphics. It gets about 60 FPS. On GTA V (more recently) I am not on max graphics and to get the 60 FPS mark, I need to put my graphics down just a little bit. Its probably about Xbox One/PS4 graphics. Maybe slightly better.
