    It still worked but it was getting to the point of rattling constantly. Tapping it in the right spot would make it shut up but it would be back within a few seconds. Wraith is much quieter and I'm interested to see how I can overclock with it.

    My rig.. the wife took the full tower so I crammed everything into the old 230T

    The board sag looks way worse in pic for some reason... and the 960 evo is nearly hidden by the cooler.. specs in sig below.. however the observant person will notice thats not the 1080TI in there currently..

    I didn't like how white looked in a gray case so I changed it up to blue :p

    New CPU cooler showed up and surprisingly had an AM4 bracket kit included. Pretty sure Newegg tossed it in there since it had a sticker smacked on the front for it and the parts were kinda free floating. Got it all going and hitting low 40's at full load (stock). Cooler looks amazing, although my phone camera can't really do it justice.

    Heartily recommend it. I haven't overclocked with it but just at stock it does better than my H100 did and from benchmarks I've seen it performs equivalent or within a few degrees of a lot of 240MM AIO water coolers. Install was easy and it's silent as far as I can tell.

    Built this for my friend the other week. He didn't have a lot of money, so we did a bit of an 'eBay scavenger bid-at-the-last-minute' build. :)

    i7 3770K with the stock cooler from my old i5 2500K which I bought brand new in 2012 and never used (yes - it was still sealed in the box right at the back of my cupboard! I used, and still use, an Arctic Cooling Freezer13 on my 2500K)
    ASRock Z77 Extreme6 (took a gamble on this since an old member 'wolfeking' here practically started a hate campaign against the ASRock Z77 boards on here, but I can confirm that asides from stupid positioning of the front audio header, it's a nice board)
    14GB DDR3 1333MHz (mostly nicked out of old PCs I had at work - 2x4GB+1x4GB+1x2GB - conventional, I know ;) )
    WD Blue 1TB (tried to convince him to go with an SSD :( )
    WD Green 500GB out of his old PC
    MSI Radeon HD 7950 3GB that he bought last year and used in his old PC (after we had taken his old case apart with a hacksaw to fit it in, lol)
    Corsair CX600M (also from his old PC)
    Corsair 300R - can't believe you can get these new for £45 from Amazon! Bargain of the decade! These were about £70 or £80 when new about 5 years ago when I was recommending them to people haha! First time I've used this case actually despite recommending it to loads of people on here in about 2012 - it's great! :D
    Some ASUS Xonar sound card he bought but never used, so why not use it in this new build eh? ;)

    Dodgy eBay copy of Windows 10 Pro that seems legit... ;)

    Not too bad I guess? I know it's about as '2012' as you can get really, but given he's upgrading from an AMD Phenom II X4 840 from 2011 with 4GB RAM it's a nice upgrade.

    All in all it cost about £300 if you don't include the money he spent on the graphics card, sound card and power supply last year. £300 for an i7 build which still performs well today is good! I still use a 3770 and I don't feel the need to upgrade so I happily recommended the 3770K to him.

    And yes as you can see in the file names of the photos, it was a late night! We started at about 4.00pm and finished at midnight. That's mostly because of how many bloody Steam games he has - his library practically fills that 500GB HDD so you can see that most of the night was spent copying Steam games. *sigh*.

    The reservoirs holding the fluid for the watercooling loops
    Here's an updated version with the fittings layout of the bottom tube changed so that it's straight now, 64GB of RAM and sleeved SATA cables, will probably stay like this until 2018 when it gets buffed to Threadripper and Volta.
