Description

I use this build mainly for gaming.

I gave it a slight overclock: 6600K runs at 4400 MHz @ 1.270v 1070 Strix OC runs at 1955 MHz / 2110 MHz

This increased my FireStrike rating from 12.973 to 15.020. Cinebench R15 increased from 607 to 736.

After a torture test of 17 hours, using Prime95, the maximum temperature of my processor did not exceed 54 ºC / 129 ºF.

My GPU does not get warmer than 61 ºC / 142 ºF.

I might overclock a bit further in the future, but this is sufficient enough for now.

I am going to replace the two casefans with non-LED corsair ML fans.

how'd you manage 44 GHz?

Simply by using a comma, instead of an point while entering the value :)

I'm more impressed by that GPU temperature tbh

I checked it again and it wouldn't get any higher.

Nice build! I really like that case but do you find it a bit loud with the x62? I have a similar build and it's not very quiet. Any ideas on how to dampen the noise?

I do not really notice the noise you mention, in my opinion it is really quiet. I linked my case fans with the fan controller of the X62, but because they do not have PWM, there is some noise.

After I replace those with some ML series from Corsair, it should be quite silent.
