So mind you the LEDs in this picture were not complete and I am having a hard time getting a good picture now...

In any case here is $3000 of money I didn't have to spend on a PC... we have:

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Case w/Tempered Glass Windows

AMD 1700x

Asus Crosshair VI Hero (which is the worst MB i've ever had until asus fixes the problems)

32 GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB Ram (The Aura software works but not really well and fails to sync the system lighting with the ram but the effects it does are cool!)

MSI GTX 1070 EK X Graphics Card

500GB Samsung 960 Evo M.2 Drive
2x500GB Samsung 860 Evo SSD Drive

EVGA 1050 Watt G2 PSU

Cooling:

EK Supremacy EVO Nickel coated block w/clear top
Graphics card includes EK block pre-installed from MSI
EKWB Revo D5 Pump
1x 360mm Alphacool 45mm Radiator
1x 120mm Alphacool 30mm Radiator
Alphacool 250mm Reservoir with some kind of UV light accessory thing I bought for it
Primochill RevolverSX 1/2" Fittings
1/2" PETG Tubing
Primochill UV Blue Coolant (color kind of sucks IMO prolly gonna change it)


I ran prime 95 and after about 30 minutes the CPU leveled out at about 67 celcius, reached a peak of 77C.... I don't know if thats too high or not I didn't even look to see what the upper thermal limit of the CPU.....

So far everything seems kind of buggy especially the motherboard. Apparently they are fixing it but who knows how long that will take. I've had to lower the ram to 1866Mhz for the system to run stable even tho its rated for 3200MHz. Apparently there is some kind of underlying issue I haven't even bothered to look to see if it effects other boards.

So there it is until I get some more pics up!

Nice build! Yes, the different LED colours are a little odd, but that's personal taste after all, the build's super clean and has great looks! Much respect for NOT using any coloured coolant

I was thinking of switching this out for some nice colorful stuff. This stuff has no jazz to it. It looks like water and the lights make it slightly more blue big woo haa....

As for the different lights the motherboard header did it which was weird. I ended up fixing it by just hooking all the LEDs up to one header since I have some in the front too that shine out the sides u can't see.
