The build is intended to replace my 2013 Mac Pro, which I used for primarily video editing and light BootCamp based gaming. My physical build is now complete with Windows 10 installed (Samsung 860 EVO SSD), along with macOS 10.12.5 (Samsung 960 EVO M.2) using the popular clover boot loader.
BUILDING ADVICE - Put the fans, and the drive bay in last. There is not much room! After having to repeatedly take apart case components to adjust/plug in parts it would have been easier to just add those in last.
Cable management and cooling. There is a small gap above the 3.5" SATA bay and the top of the case, use this for cables, and keep cables away from the side heat exhaust bay.
Added some Silverstone LS02 RGB strips, and connected them to the RGB headers.
Fans. Currently I have all but one (the left intake fan) attached to the NZXT Fan Controller on the Liquid Cooler. This seems to work well. The other fan is attached to the CPU fan connection on the motherboard. This was fine, but it would repeatedly ramp up and down before I got ASUS FanXpert 4 to better control it.
Liquid Cooler. Run at 100% I don't know why at first I ran it on silent, as it is already pretty quiet. This has definitely helped lowering average CPU temp.
RESULTS - Average Temperatures: Idles at 30C for CPU/GPU, and under load for a few hours on BF1 at Ultra Settings, it stayed around 70C, whereas the GPU sometimes gets hotter by a few degrees.
For a first time build, I am very happy with the results. What would I change? RGB fans and RAM would have been nice, but cosmetics aside, it was a success.
