If you haven't found out yet, there are clips holding the fan to the cooler. Just remove them and the fan can be taken off. The clips will accommodate mostly any 120mm fan.

Update: I was able to fix the issue by manually uninstalling all nvidia drivers, rebooting, and then re-installing the latest from the nvidia website. Hope this helps anyone who may have this issue as well.

I haven't taken the time to benchmark games, but I can tell you that it can run mostly any maxed out game at 1080p, it ran battlefront 2 beta really well, it surprised me.

I simply removed the front cover and put some black electrical tape over the led.

I'm glad you like it, thanks! I would get an aftermarket cooler to help reduce noise levels, but everyone's noise tolerance level is different. My PC is almost inaudible at idle, which I love.

The H7 did not come with the bracket for AM4, I had to request it from cryorig. It took a couple weeks for me to receive the bracket, so I had to use the stock cooler.

Thank you. My main goal for cable management was to make it easy to swap parts when necessary, I think I did ok for my first build.

Glad you like it! I actually got the trooper at my local target, not sure what brand it is. It's more of an action-figure type thing.

The ram is overpriced, I would get something like vengeance lpx instead. The WD black's arent usually worth the price premium these days too. It looks like you are willing to pay a premium for aesthetics, just know you can save alot of money on some components like the cpu cooler, If you are willing to sacrifice appearence.

If gaming, than I would upgrade the gpu first. For the cpu I would get a ryzen 1600 if gaming at around 60hz. You will need a new motherboard and ddr4 memory too.

The 7700k will not work on a z170 board without a bios flash. To flash the bios you will need a skylake cpu.

The 1080ti is overkill for 1080p 144hz, a 1070 will be just fine for that. Also I would get the full version of windows, as it can be transferred to a new system at no additional cost.

I use mx silent switches in my strafe rgb and they are quieter than reds but louder than membrane for sure. If you want a silent mechanical keyboard, silent switches may just be the best option.

I would get the ryzen 1600, you won't really see any benefits from the 1700 in gaming, as they overclock about the same. Games like high frequency cores, but future optimizations should make better use of more cores, and the ryzen 1600 has plenty of cores and threads at its disposal. I would only get the 1700 if you will do a lot of multitasking, editing, streaming, etc.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been busy all day. The rx 580 is good for 1080p ultra at 60+ fps, so It should do 75 just fine, but 75fps ultra is not guaranteed with all games

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First build. A few questions."

Well, the i7 is still good for streaming, but ryzen has more headroom. If you want better framerates at 144hz than the i7 is your cpu. The motherboard you selected is very nice, but you could save some money and get something like the msi z270-A pro, which is still a nice motherboard. For the cpu cooler I recommend the noctua NH D14, it should perform just as well as the water cooler, and it's 70$ on amazon right now.

Have you already built it/purchased the parts? With an rx 580 I would stick to 1080p, but 75hz vs 144hz is up to you, the rx 580 would not be able to push 144 frames at ultra settings, you would need to lower the settings a little.

Forgot to mention the i7 7700k. It would be the better option for 144hz gaming, so I would swap the 1700 for the i7, which of course means a different mobo too.

Your parts list looks solid, a gtx 1080 is a good option for 1440p 144hz, so I would stick with that. However If I were you I would save some money on the motherboard and cooler.

Are you planning to overclock the cpu? With a peak load temperature of 58c, you have quite some headroom to overclock. Also very creative with the cables!

I came up with this part list, the ssd can be replaced by a 1tb 7200rpm hdd, or you can add a hard drive as well. For the keyboard, it really depends on you and what you like, so I will leave that up to you to decide on. Rendering at this price point is a bit complicated though, as the cpu in the list isn't the best at rendering. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/hq9cKZ

What resolution and refresh rate are you gaming at? If high refresh rate go with a 7700k. If you will be gaming at say 60-80ish hz, then I would get a ryzen cpu. The 1600 and 1700 are the two best chips imo.

I would get a ryzen cpu then, at 60-75hz ryzen is a great gaming choice. I use a ryzen 1600 and its plenty for gaming on my 75hz monitor.

I recommend this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CwgPxr/dell-s2417dg-238-165hz-monitor-s2417dg It isn't IPS but I heard the colors are excellent after calibration, and viewing angles are also good for a TN panel. It is 165hz though, not sure if you like that or not.

This is what I recommend: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QzD8BP You can save a lot of money by choosing a different case, unless you want aesthetics. If you are gaming at a high refresh rate than I would get an i7 instead.

I would get a 1080 instead, as they are only a little bit more than a 1070 right now. There is a couple gigabyte 1080's under 520$ at newegg. Also why not add an ssd and 16gb ram?
