Great Build. Absolute love the parts I have chosen, but hoping to get some LED fans and maybe some LED's around the sides of the PC, so certain area of the PC is lit. I have built this PC because of my 7 years old PC, kept bottlenecking the GTX 1070, I upgraded to GTX 1070, two years ago but realised that my old pc was bottlenecking it. So i have saved up and brought these parts.
I have overclocked the CPU to 5 GHz with 1.35v, the idle temp is around 20c to 30c and max temp is around 64c to 68c with the CORSAIR H100v2. However, I think I am able to push it a bit more but these settings are stable and I don't want to risk anything happening to the CPU.
As I will be moving to my own room soon, I am hoping to have enough space for 2 or 3 monitors and have a much cleaner set up than this. It was also my first time in cable management, so it was very annoying and took a long time but I am happy with the result and hopefully, next time it will be much quicker to do.
Overall, I am happy with the parts, I have bought and I am satisfied with the performance that this PC can do on 1440p and 4k. If you have any recommendation on what LED fans I should get and any improvement I can make, please comment down below _^

Amazing CPU, Overclocked it to 5GHz pretty easily and able to push it a bit more if i have too.
Fantastic cooler, helped the CPU to get low temps when overclocking.
Good looking MOBO, Its has all of the ports and functions that I needed. The aesthetic is very slick and look nice in my build.
The RGB is very bright and stands out. Its a very solid built RAM and 2666hz is all i needed.
Cheap and affordable SDD. Good for storing the OS and other small applications.
Reliable and fast SSD. I have used this SSD for couple years now and it still works perfectly
A Beast of a GPU, it performs 1440p Ultra settings without a problem and certain 4k games work absolutely fine. I had SLI 660 before and upgraded to this GPU.
Amazing looking case, The cable management clips behind the PC, helped me a lot with the cables and the tempered glass makes the whole build stands out
