    the tops cards now are Nvidia, AMD is losing the battle on both sides CPU and GPU.

    Debating selling it all or keeping it. I do most of my browsing on the phone or laptop these days. I really only come in my "office" these day to play GTA V.

    Also considered, if I keep the setup, selling the monitors and just buying a single 4K 40".

    Update to the rig.

    I'm done with water coolers for now. Over it. In 6 years or so I've been through a Corsair H60, H80, and H100i. I wasn't too impressed with the H60 so got the H80. It died and so the new build got an H100i. It has recently died. I considered the Kraken x62 but it gets very mixed reviews so fk all that.

    I started looking at maybe redoing my build with a different cooler and case. As usual that spiraled into considering more and more parts until I was building new PC. I looked at using the FT03 case and doing Kaby Lake 7770K (or even waiting for Coffee Lake 8770K) + mobo + DDR4 (which is insanely expensive right now) and was looking at around $1600 already. No way Jose. Let's back up. Current rig with 4770K is still ripping through every game at ultra settings on a 2K monitor without flinching.

    Did some research and opted to try the popular Noctua NH-D15. I wasn't going to have those ugly fans in my case tho so I also picked up some of their chromax black fans and the white heatsink covers. I left off the second optional fan as my RAM is a bit too tall to accommodate the other 140mm fan. I'd need a 120mm fan there to make everything flush but after testing I don't even need it.

    I paid almost the same amount as I would have for the Kraken but I'm super happy with this air cooler. Idle temps are in the 20's and an hour of full load gaming has recorded a peak temp of 51 degrees. Air > water.

    The problem with that many fans is are they helping or hindering? You ideally want air coming in to be drawn over components and then drawn out. Conflicting fans may mean deadzones in the case where little air movement happens.

    looks good though

    Meh. All's well. Gauging by temps, it’s operating exceptionally well. The two fans at the top are pulling any rising hot air out of the case. I can't remember what RPM they're set to but it's whatever the lowest setting was. Everything else is moving one direction, front to back. My mobo also has temp readings in several locations and everything is reading beautifully.

    Updated with second GTX 1080 FTW. Mining about $15/day. Shouldn't take but 60 days or so to break even on the new card.

    (I have since fixed the cabling at the bottom and stuffed those wires behind the top cards wiring)
