Game Buster

First and foremost I love asus bios so I went with a asus board. CPU is overclocked stable to 5ghz using XMP profile 1. RAM is stable at 3200mhz. The corsair H150i Pro has done very good cooling the CPU. I ran timespy extreme and never saw a temp over 68c. In normal game sessions in RainbowSix Siege it averages 56c. And similar in Anthem and other current games in 4k.

The GPU I specifically went after the EVGA hybrid card. I couldn't afford full water cooling on my budget and my old 1080 hit some very high temps so cooling was a priority. This has done superb so far. Metro Exodus in 4k on ultra with DLSS on and RTX on averages 80-120 fps with 76fps being my 1% low. Anthem in 4k with high and ultra settings sits at a 60fps solid (v sync on due to screen tearing) with out v sync it averaged in the 70s. for all of this my highest temps were 62c with a 56c average. I have not overclocked my GPU yet.

The be quiet dark base pro rev 2 is great! however it is difficult to work with. many many screws and very time consuming to strip it down and install everything they put it back together. also on the back side room is tight so cable management is not as simple with some other cases. Also I could not fit the front radiator ontop with the rear radiator so I mounted it to the front which took away my ability to use the drive cages, which was a small problem only because the SSD holder on the back dose not fit the Samsung 860. so i used a small drive cage and managed to mount it in the bottom where the large drive cage was previously. So keep this in mind if you front mount a radiator. However overall this case is great. good airflow, its quiet, i enjoy the wireless charger and I overall love the sleek look.
