i7-7700k delid with Grizzly Conductionaut/1.260V/4,7GHz

800RPM NZXT Kraken fans + 500RPM Phanteks case top and rear fans - max 68°C at RealBench and supersilent

CPU

I delided it and on CPU die i used Grizzly Conductionaut, on the internet you can mark up to 20°C temperature drop. Its just need for this type of CPUs

COOLER

I feel bad for this pick, because i ordered it only because of its look. But check the photos, its just too cool. Anyway no problems with CAM software so far. On silent mode its really quiet.

MOTHERBOARD

Design of ASUS STRIX is just superb, i wanted some mATX and this is only mobo with full OC potential. WiFi and Bluetooth is just tip on a cake.

GPU

Waiting for AMD VEGA to swap, with R9 280X is this build just overkill.

POWER SUPPLY

To ~350W this PSU is dead quiet, because fan not run. Really recommend this piece of hardware.

Same thing for me with the Kraken, I got it becasue it looked cool. Mistake. I should've gone for a Noctua D15 air cooler.

Noctua provide just superb coolers, hard to challenge them. I Heard D15s is great noise/performance cooler.

To persist low noise PC i try to overclock with an even lower Vcore than stock.

1,25V core is stock, so my target is something like 1,22V and ~4,7GHz. Hope i got lucky.
