Great build! Have you managed to use the Thunderbolt 3 port so far? That's the main reason to buy the motherboard, so I was wondering how it functions (eg. is it limited to 20gb/s?) and compatibility with Zen 2 CPUs.

That's a stunning Motherboard and Case combo, great review! I wonder how well the Asrock board can handle 2 x Sabrent PCIe 4.0 NVME SSDs in RAID 0. Might do a cheeky mATX HTPC build.

How is its usability past 75%? As long as it equals a standard SATA SSD and opens games quickly that would be great to know!

What's wrong with Noctua's style? Not everyone likes RGB you know.

I've overclocked my 4790K @ 1.36v non-delidded and I max out at 80c, I'm impressed with the Grand Macho. Though I'm looking to upgrade to something extremely similar to your setup. Currently I have huge temperature issues with my EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 - very noisy and throttles the card to 1800 Mhz @ ~83c. I'm considering the Define C however after looking at your build I'm leaning towards the Meshify C (no tempered glass though) and sticking in lots of Noctua's new 120mm fans.

Actually thinking about it, the PSU length limit on the case is 175mm, the G2 is 180mm, only 5mm longer. I built my brother's PC with a similar issue of '5mm over' with a 650 GQ and completely different case, and it was a snug fit, but it worked.

Yeah I've got the same issue, did you find out whether the 750w G2 fits in the Define C?

Hey OP, it's awesome to see the 'Grand Macho' installed in a Nano S! I'm going to build something very similar however maybe with low profile RAM. Do you think it is possible to install the cooler in its default/normal position if I buy RAM with shorter heatsinks? Apparently the 'G.Skill Ripjaws V' series just about fits, any ideas? :)

Thank you so much for that review mate, the only thing I'm worried about is RAM clearance with this cooler since I'm thinking about using this in a mini-ITX build (w/ a cheeky delidded 8700K @ 5GHz btw). There is also another similar model to the 'Grand Macho' called 'Macho Rev. B' and I don't know if it performs similarly. Any thoughts?

Hey that's a nice build! I'm going to build something similar very soon, just got a couple of questions if that's alright. I'm thinking of buying a Thermalright Macho Rev B, which is 2mm taller in height than your Dark Rock 3, do you reckon it would just about make it? If not then would you recommend the Dark Rock 3 for an OC'd (delidded) 8700K?

Good build, however are you sure that this specific ASrock motherboard is the only ITX Z370 that has decent VRMs + heatsinks? What about the ASUS one? One other thing I've heard about this board is that its Long/Short Duration Power Limit can only go up to 200W - meaning that running an 8700K @ 5Ghz could be concerning, but I don't know whether one could hit this limit. Also how are temperatures on the M.2 SSD at the back of your mobo? Sorry I've got a lot of questions, I'm just considering an 8700K ITX build!

Have you tried overclocking your CPU, if so what have you managed to achieve with your specific mobo?

why the Z170 with 6500 tho?... Just 20 more bucks would have gotten you a 6600K which has 25% more performance.

I started the build a year ago and this was the best I could do for the money I had. I'm guessing a 7200rpm drive would be even louder, and silence is something I also wanted with the build. And I love my power supply, not taking any chances with anything risky and I know that 750w is overkill but it will last me 10+ years along with my upgrades in the future ;)

+1 for the R9 Fury X, I used to own one but had to return it because of the noise. Fantastic card for 4K though, I found it to scale across resolutions really well for me.

Looks like a decent build, how is that Fury X holding up by the way? I just ordered one from Amazon and apparently they're unreliable and can catch fire and stuff.

Are you sure? As I read it only supports up to 1866Mhz, and I intend on buying 2400Mhz (but would be a waste if it didn't work).

Looks fantastic man, I'm actually thinking of buying the same Xeon E3-1231 V3, however I'm not sure whether it would be sufficient enough in gaming (due to its slower single-thread speed). BTW I'm not considering getting a 4690k because I don't want to overclock.

Damn, how come you don't compress the files to H.265 using advanced compression software?
