Ya, it's time Hantlers took a well deserved break from the forums. This dislike/neg abuse is annoying and disruptive.

Thermaltake Tower 900 build

This is during the build. The circle shows where the tiny 1TB NVMe SSD is.

Pretty good shot of the fancy RGB memory sticks. The software to control the lighting is due out this month. For now they just cycle through the entire spectrum.

So my specs again:

Intel i5 7600K
Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 Z270 motherboard
Samsung Evo 960 NVMe SSD 1TB
G.Skill Trident-Z RGB 2400 XMP DDR4 32GB (4x8GB) RAM
Gigabyte G1 1070 Windforce GPU
ASUS ROG Strix 27" 1ms GTG, 165Hz, 2560x1440 (1440p 2K) G-Sync monitor
EVGA 850W PSU
CPU cooler Corsair H80i V2
Thermaltake Tower 900 computer case

Stock speed on CPU is 3.8GHz, overclocked to 5GHz like nothing. So now I want to see how far I can push this CPU, considering "delidding/relidding."

I don't have my colorful case fans yet. Might also throw in some LED strips.

I'm only so-so on the red on white. Might paint the white portion some other color. I think the case looks like it should have a skill crane in it. I'm looking for something to do with the open space at the bottom. Would consider action figures, sports figurines, a ship in a bottle, fish tank, whatever.

pretty nice price drops, i thought they would wait for independent benchmarks!
because i am eagerly awaiting independent benchmarks.

Intel Core i7-6850K (3.60GHz) drop from $700 to $550, and the i7-6800K (3.40GHz) drop down to $360, from $500.Also, some mid-range chips are receiving price cuts as well. Those include the i7-6700K, a 4.0GHz chip dropping from $400 to $260, and the i7-6600K, a 3.50GHz quad-core part dropping from $270 to $180. Even Intel's latest and greatest Kaby Lake-based i7-7700K has experienced a drop, from $380 to $299, with places like Amazon and NewEgg retailing for $349.

gameface you should get the i7 6700k or 7700k as an upgrade over your i5 :D

personally for my main rig i will keep intel(because isrtaels invovlement into the intel cpu business)

For gaming neither of those is an "upgrade" to a 7600k. Especially since you can get a 7600k over 5GHz on air.

Okay, an update.

First, I had been running solid at 5.1GHz but backed it off to 5GHz which is where I plan to keep it. I have pushed to 5.2GHz and ran stable and passes stress tests. But it's not about overclocking in and of itself. I want stability and feel like long-term 5GHz is plenty of speed and comfortably below the limit for this chip.

I also made a small mod to my case to make it possible to mount my liquid AIO cooler in the back.

Really opens it up and doesn't hide my system behind a bulky AIO cooler.

I'll have to take an updated pic or two because I have it looking pretty good now. Better than these pics.
