Yah for some odd reason that always happens with any build I have... The real temps are CPU and Mainboard...

 

On load it's not bad at all. 50*C when playing Smite, WoW, League of Lengends, Battlefield Hardline and Warframe.

 

So I am happy with how it turned out.

Impressive temperatures, although i would have gone with Vardar fans, and paint them beige/tan to match the mobo

Yah originally that was the idea... the motherboard has the colors Army Military hence the "military grade components" but I wanted to go with "red and black". So yah it was a trade off... Military grade like motherboard and the rest can be red accents.

 

In the future I can always color the heatsinks over the VRM's and Northbridge. But for now it works.

 

Upgrades in the future will be PTG rigid tubing and maybe some Kingston Savage Memory to match the SSD.
