great build.

Question: With your current configuration, Would the GPU's hybrid radiator fit on top left of the GPU (where that fan is, currently) , with the H150i in place? Could it be possible to mount the H150i in front of the case, pushing air out of the case? Afterwards you can bring air in from the top.

thanks! Yes I thought the same, but sadly that isn't the case so far.

I replaced the stock GPU Radiator fan with noctua (which made about 6-8 degrees difference). my temps dont even go higher than 47-48 MAX, which I think is amazing. That is with the msi afterburner settings at +75 on core clock, and +0 on memory. power limit maxed at 105%. Anything higher on the core clock, and I get a "display driver has stopped working and recovered..blahblah.." error. I should also note, that this card ran out of the box at 1987Mhz without tweaks.

It seems there is a programmed limit on there. For my card, I simply cant go over 2050mhz even with these apparently cool temps. Kind of defeats the purpose of liquid cooling for Overclocking purposes. But, hey 2050mhz isnt bad and I'll call it a day :)

I'll try and post a screenshot of my card's OC settings. It seems to comes down to silicon lottery. Unless someone comes out with a pascal BIOS editor to be able to push these gpus further ;)

nice build. one ziptie does them all! jk.

that is an amazing OC at 4.8ghz. I have the same cpu/cooler combo and wondering what are your idle temps?

Also what is your voltage at 4.8ghz?

nice build.

hope you plan to use up those drive bays.... or just open it like someone suggested here for better airflow.

Grats on reaching it !

True 2050 isnt bad in itself, but I was so wishing that I would be able to get something closer to what these guys got : https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_1080_sea_hawk_x_review,39.html

That's very true. I was scared about it.

In another note, I actually went ahead and ordered Arctic MX4 to replace the stock paste on H100iv2. Temps run about 62-ish on load at 4.5ghz. So I will have to freak out again when its time to put the thumb screws back on ;)

Hi, thats a good build. I am no expert, but I don't see any issues with it running GTA on 1080p max :) EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB FTW DT GAMING ACX 3.0 Video Card should be able to handle it no problem.

thanks :) A fully sized PSU may fit, but many have said...due to the proximity with the GPU, a full size PSU would be taller,and very closer to GPU which can cause heat issues in this tiny case (unless we use a blower style or water cooled card). though I AM using a watercooled card, I still wanted it to have some gap for peace of mind, so I went with a SFX PSU.

I came across this vid, which seemed to make more sense:
