Description

So this is really the first build I've done myself without any help from my other more tech savvy friends. I noticed this site doesn't allow for the combination of the Corsair RM850 and the Fractal Design Meshify C but even though its a really tight fit with the cables it does in fact fit. I use this machine mainly for gaming and the occasional standard documentation (word, excel, etc.). I know the RAM isn't very well known (at least it wasn't for me) but damn it looks and works great.

It is still fairly new so I haven't done full benchmark tests as of yet but I have noticed that I have never gone below 130fps on the new Battlefront II and Destiny 2.

If you have any questions/comments/suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Nice build +1

How do you like the Meshify C? I've been looking at it as a replacement for my S340 Elite

I love it. Like I said it is a bit cramped in the power supply section but everything else is great. taking the front screen out is a bit of a pain too but nothing major to consider it a bad option.

Thanks! Yea I need to lift up the other one since I like them higher to keep my back straight while gaming. I mainly use the one on the right for temps/performance monitoring and my Discord application though so its not to much of a hassle but yes it is indeed a little weird.

How is the kraken x62? I heard the pump fails a lot and it is very noisy. Also does it keep the 7700k cool? Im doing a build similar to yours

I've only had it since this September but it works great and isn't noisy at all so far. The CAM software for it isn't that bad either. The pump for the graphics card's cooler is louder for sure but with the glass panel on you can't really hear anything.

It seems that you are choking the GPU rad by putting it as an exhaust. I would rather put it on lower front and put CPU rad on top as an exhaust (if motherboard component height allows). That way you can put 1 x 140 mm fan front above GPU rad to supply relatively fresh air for CPU. Otherwise I would put the GPU rad on top as an intake.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try moving them around to see if they fit before I buy the new 140mm fan for the front. Do you have a preferred fan that you think I should use?

Actually I liked the NZXT Aer P fans that came with the Kraken X42/52/62. The tone are low pitched at high RPM. I'm more easily annoyed by the pitch rather than actually the dB level. But they are kinda hard to come by these days as it seems that everyone just wants the Aer RGB... The Noctua Industrial 2000 PWM seems to be another good low pitch noise option.
