Sorry for the bad picture :(

i3-8350k oc@4.5ghz 40C idle 60-68C load

RX580 @ 1411MHz 30C idle 70-74C load

Included Phanteks LED strip was too small (only big enough to cover the top portion of the case), purchased a 1m long one and it fits perfectly around the edges, put the included one over the 24pin and usb3 cables. Corsair AF140 added in the front for extra intake due to suboptimal case airflow. Minor coil whine on the GPU when running some games at 144fps. No network card or speakers, headset and ethernet cord. CPU fan works great and looks stylish, PSU is sufficient, case fans are sufficient, RAM works fine. Would not recommend the i3-8350k over the i5-8400 for anything except emulation (which benefits from higher clock speeds as opposed to more cores). Tried to OC the 8350k to 4.8ghz and got to about 75C under load, 85C under prime95 and it wasn't even stable. Went back to 4.5ghz when I realized that it doesn't make too much of a difference anyway. THE LED STRIPS IN THE PHANTEKS CASE USE UP A SATA POWER CABLE! Very important as the PSU I got included these cables that only have 2 SATA power connectors, which means I could only have 1 hard drive in there without putting another cable in. All parts ordered from amazon.ca. Total cost including extra fan and LED strip: $1300 CAD. This is my first build. :D

Nice build! The only thing I would change is that mess around the gpu cables. plus 1 for plusle

Yeah the included cable is very ugly and comes with an extra thing for 6+2, tried to tuck it into the coils but it vibrates and makes noise. :(

Try using some electrical tape to tape them up to the cable.
