Description

First custom gaming rig. Also used for slight content creation. Initially built with on a budget and eventually spun into a bottle necked mess with aesthetic in favor of performance. The G4560 was meant to be temporary but I never got around to replacing it with an i5 or an i7. The theme was meant to be a predominantly white pc with black accents and white rgb lighting. Resorted to red for my ram led's as the Geil evo X didnt play well with the farbwerk and I didnt have a long enough cable to hook them both up. Ended up reminding me of the cyrex skins from CSGO and it kinda stuck, Custom sleeved cheap non modular ketchup and mustard psu cables with white nylon cords. Had to cut off the additional 6 pin that hung off my 8 pin just for aesthetics....Not the most ideal configuration but it's mine.

I love the LEDs and the cable management. It has amazing color contrast and great choice of parts. I like how u can easily switch out parts to upgrade. 11/10

Get a GPU riser.

This is why I like some of the cases that have vertical gpu mounts, no more sag.

Clean build!

Try to lift that saggy graphics card by getting the CPU cooler hoses off of it and tighten the screw(s) holding it in place.

Thanks!

Actually the saggy graphics card is whats holding the hoses from going down any further. The gpu itself is still super saggy from its own weight.

Hey I don't know if this will make much sense but when I had a heavy Gpu I put a paper clip on the white cable management thing and moved it up so the part where you pinch holds the Gpu up. If you don't understand what I'm saying I could upload a photo, this helped my Gpu.
Edit: binder clip not paper*

Jayztwocents has a video on how to fix the saggy card on YouTube.

thanks for the reply!

how did you mount these and connect these?

the top one is mounted onto the case via magentic tape (because the adhesive sucks) and connected to a 4 pin rgb connector with an extension cable thats routed through the back and into the psu basement. The one on the side is on another 4 pin connector routed through a small slit in the edge of the psu shroud (that was a pain in the butt to route through). The one on the bottom is on a 4 pin connector and extension cable routed through the cutouts on the bottom of the case, through the holes on the radiator mount, and into the basement. All these are hooked up to my farbwerk controller that I hid in the basement

You should really upgrade to a 7600k or 7700k because that expensive Kraken is a huge waste for a sub-100 Pentium.

Weird part choices. Get an i5-7500

I5-7500 is not Overclockable so there is no reason to upgrade to a CPU that can't be overclocked when you have a Kraken AIO cooler.

Weird advice

He only has a B250 motherboard, so unless he planning on replacing his motherboard, a i5-7500 or i5-7600 would be a better use of money than the i5-7600K, so Oribital's advice isn't terrible. Since he has that cooler though, I'd bet he'd upgrade his motherboard to make use of an unlocked CPU, in which case the i5-7600K would make more sense.
