Thanks! The R5 is a great case. It couldn't be easier to work in and the sound dampening works very well. With the front panel closed, I can only hear the machine with my ear up to it. The condenser mic I'm using is very sensitive and the fan noise is practically inaudible on a typical recording.

Having said all that, if I were building this machine today, I would go with the R6 for the reasons I noted. The acrylic got pretty scratched up on day one, and the custom shroud was almost the cost of the case itself.

Thanks man, and that's great to know! I hadn't heard that but will definitely be going that route. Much appreciated!

I wasn't aware they made EATX boards with two DIMM slots. Great looking build, I love the case.

at high graphics settings, you have to be MUCH more concerned with a GPU bottlenecking a CPU than the opposite. even still, an i7 from two generations ago is still a very powerful chip.

Silicon Lottery will delid for you for about the same cost as a Rockit88 or a de8auer tool ($45) with none of the risk of doing it yourself. I'd suggest looking into that if you don't expect to delid more than one 1151 socket chip in your lifetime.

You may notice the extra stick of RAM which I transplanted from my first rig. I know three sticks is isn't really recommended but there's no noticeable difference in terms of performance for me so why not.

Reading is fundamental!

Build looks great! As far as the RAM goes though, are you ever likely to use 64 GB in your typical use? I'd agree with you that RAM speed is relatively low on the totem pole of performance factors, but you realize zero performance gains from more RAM capacity unless you're using it. I would think 32 GB @ 3200 MHz would give you better performance and save you a couple hundred bucks. Just my $0.02. Beautiful PC though!

If I had to venture a guess it would be that his userbenchmark results were 41st percentile, which is to say that around 60% of people with the exact same components are getting better performance than he is.

I wouldn't have used the word "underperforming" since the performance is squarely in "average" territory but I could still see being disappointed in that.

You've listed Noctua fans in your description but all appear to be Corsair? I'd flip those top fans to exhaust and flip the AIO fans to intake. This is a very confusing build lol. But it looks nice.

wow. I mean there's no way I'd run at 1.43 or above for longer than it takes to test it, but that's insane to know that you can. I bet it does a very comfortable 5.3 then for daily use. good to know, thanks!

side note, spare a thought for everyone who paid $700+ for a pre-binned 8700K from silicon lottery in the last couple months. RIP in peace.

Very nice. Any plans on overclocking? I'm interested to see what the average 8086K can do if they really are just binned 8700Ks; I'd expect most could do 5.2 easily but I'd love to know from someone who's tried first hand!

I installed both fans from the beginning so I couldn't tell you what the temps would be with just the one. Reviews I've read make it seem like it's only a 1 or 2 C difference so I think the same OC is achievable at stock. I can say that I'm thrilled with the U12S performance-wise after hearing the horror stories of the 8700Ks thermals. In daily use temps rarely go above 45° @ 5 GHz. Only ever cracks 60 in synthetic stress tests.

lol why would you save $20 on a power supply that will be pulling electricity out of the wall less efficiently for 10 years? unless you live in your parents basement and don't pay the power bill, that is terrible advice.

Got it! My advice solely based on personal preference would be to set the LEDs to white and let the colors of the cables and other components speak for themselves. The blue kinda hides the nice green cables. Beautiful build either way though!
