Idling is about 40 Degree Celsius, and Max Temp under load is around 75 Degree Celsius.

the fan controller has six 3-pin ports for you to plug in your fans.

In order to control your fan using NZXT CAM software, you must run a micro USB cable from the fan controller, to the your motherboard's usb 2.0 header. The cable comes in the package.

I did not do any overclocking.

At stock, here are the temps

Idling: 30 to 35 degree Celsius 15% to 30% load : 40 to 45 degree Celsius 40% to 60% load: 50 to 60 degree Celsius 70% to 90+% load: 70 to 80 degree Celsius

You results may varies according to your ambient temps. I am living in a tropical country.

My Arous Xtreme is in fact getting very good temps compared to 9900K.

The bottom intake fans are providing additional cooling to the GPU

You will need to purchase a grid fan controller separately.

You are right. But, this may not be the best configuration. I am doing so because the leds on the AER fans are only on a single side.

What's the thickness of the radiator? I can help you measure the clearance at the back of the case when I get home tomorrow from X'Mas Celebration.

Anyway, I doubt you have enough clearance for push pull.

I am using the cooler master one. I bought the cablemod one initially, but there was not enough clearance to mount a bottom fan.

Yes, temps were better than expected. Idle below 40 degree Celsius. Hence fans are not spinning.

Hovering between 27 to 30 degree Celsius when idle. I live in a tropical country (Singapore) by the way.

I did some overclocking and manage to get 5fps. Loving it so far!

Yes. It's hard to justify that kind of price. I guess the pricing will dip real soon.

To run 3 tasks concurrently: First one for gaming, second one for streaming shows, the third one for monitoring stats (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc) + steam friend list

1070 will fit just fine. Gaming wise GTX1070's performance will be about the same as 980ti at 1080p, but it will scale better at higher resolution due to higher/faster vram.

Rendering wise I am not sure.

However, wait awhile more for custom cards which are going to have better performance and priced more competitively. Don't get the founders edition. I would of cos recommend the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming series.

I would suggest you get a 512GB m.2 PCI-E x4 SSD (samsung pro 950) since it is theoretically faster than the 256GB version.

However, aesthetically, it may not be that good looking if the SSD mounting on top of the PSU shroud is empty.

Custom sleeved cables:

1 x 24pin ATX

2 x 8pin PCI-E

1 x 8pin CPU

The rest of the SATA and Molex cables can be hidden if you do your cable management properly. Hence I suggest using the original modular cables that came with the PSU.

Sorry man, I couldn't recall the exact measurement. Based on estimation, the CPU 2x4 pin cable should be around 50 to 60cm. The rest around 35 to 45cm.

I did noticed that the temps of my CPU were a few degrees higher when I had the SSD inserted in the M.2 slot near the CPU.

Hence, I re-mounted it near the GPU.

I remember reading some articles (specific to my mobo) that it is better to use the M.2 slot near the GPU, if the user ain't running dual GPU.

I didn't really make a comparison on the temperature of my GPU with/without the 950 Pro inserted near there.

You may want to consider the Corsair Spec Alpha case if you a geting the Gigabyte Gaming 7 Mobo. I think they blend perfectly.

Would have bought the predator x34 monitor, if I had more budget. Nevertheless, I guess the current setup is good enough to last me awhile.

There's still a long way before 2016 is over. I am sure the geniuses here will be able to come out with much better build than mine.
