For some reason this PC build reminds me of the TV show Dexter. It is basically my previous build with the addition of a better motherboard and a mid ATX case. I also invested in watercooling with the h100i GTX so that I can actually overclock my 8350. Currently it is fairly stable at 4.6Ghz with 1.45v (23x multi), but I am determined to at least get it to 4.8Ghz with this cooler.
The installation of the AIO cooler was fairly easy once I ditched the instruction manual and used common sense. I tinkered around with the radiator setup and found that I could keep my aesthetically pleasing white NZXT bar if I decided to not mount the 4th fan on the radiator in pull/push. I also decided to use my SilenX 120mm fans on the radiator over the ones that came with the h100i GTX because they were louder and frequently changing RPM's, which annoyed me. I tinkered around with the Corsair link software, but I find it easier to just let my SilenX fans run on full speed vs using the stock cooler fans.
My pride and joy of this build is really my motherboard, and I was so excited to see a new ATX board being offered from Gigabyte for the am3+ socket, even though my CPU is outdated. I probably should have gone with intel for a CPU, but I really wanted to make an all AMD gaming rig so I chose the 8350 in hopes that as time goes by, more game developers will use DX12 and multicore software.
I've included pictures with flash off and on. I honestly think the color theme looks really nice being black/red/white. Let me know what you guys think in the comment section and take care!
*Update #1: Reached fairly stable OC of 4.8GHz, but I'm not seeing a huge difference over 4.6 so I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not. Screenshot attached!
