Quasar - reworked!


So I finished this build.. then quickly ran into pump problems, case problems and you name it. I've replaced several components and thought I'd share what I changed for feedback on how it looks:)


Specs in signature, but what I changed:


Kraken x62 changed to Silent Loop 360


Phanteks  evolv atx changed to Be quiet Dark base 700


Maximus X hero changed to Maximus X Hero (Wifi)


Powersupply changed from Corsair HX750I to EVGA Supernova P2 850


SEE and HDD changed to  single 1TB m.2 SSD.


As for performance.. 

With a 5GHz OC on the 8700K, I was able to hit 1645 on cinnibench with a max temp of 60c.

Noise is.. inaudible. Unless you press your ear to the case the only thing you can hear is the pump buzz which is being replaced.


What do you guys think  ? Last thing Im considering changing is adding three silent wings 3 to replace the pure wings intake, there's 4 silent wings 3 fans  there now and they are much more quiet.

Really? wasn't a decent pci-e wifi card not enough? xD


Hey every thing is looking as great as it gets, this hardware combo really is how far it goes right now, myself personally aside the memory I haven't even touched overclocking on the CPU and GPU yet and I already feel satisfied in performance, over all the build gets a 10 by me ;)
