    Dude, that cooler looks so happy!! I heard Nanya A-Die overclocks pretty well.

    I didn't notice the white LED's either! Nice subtle feature.

    So is your Mrs cool with the level of illumination going on with her rig?? :D

    I don't think she got much of a say in any of this at all tbh. But she did start massively jumping onboard these last few days as more stuff is coming and her space for working is starting to become a reality. Tbh I just decided I'm doing it a few weeks ago and it's gone from there. I knew I had a while before I could afford everything but had no idea this would all get so bad so really it was a lucky call. Right now she is working on one of my laptops which tbh is more than man enough for the job but she needs better to work effectively. So a mini version of my setup.

    Also literally all the setup will likely ever do is run word/zoom/jabba and vmware horizon client. :(

    The mother lode has arrived! There's not that much black there right? Looks like a steal though! Now the real fun begins, just in time for the weekend too!!! Happy days.

    That's going to be one epic build for the cost! You certainly done your shopping and proves that you can save money if you shop around.

    I have no idea how it all fits together!!! I think there is some way to attach the pump to a res or something... I dunno more toys just arrived!! 2x Model O's and a 34" curved panel... All I am waiting on is a desk!

    I didn't even know what I was getting. I was just told it will be a full watercooling setup for the cpu. I mean we tried to communicate but it wasn't so easy. The fella doesn't really understand me so in the end I just sent him money and said just send me whatever, we spent 3 days trying to understand what I meant by white! Not really a standard shopping experience but it's £75 and that would just about buy me the block alone.

    It also looks like the bykski controller will work with those other fans and it 'looks' like I may be able to manually set the levels for each R,G & B.

    All part of the fun. Remote shopping with somebody that doesn't really speak your language or know what you are talking about. It's like a lottery, you might not get what you think you are getting.

    Desk! Desk is coming as well. I am pretty sure there are probably some more packages on route. I had a pack of purple LED's and some other jazz coming for some mods. And coolant!! Don't have any of that yet! but do have distilled water.

    Opened up the res and i have some damage...

    Don't think it effects the functioning of it at all so no harm there.
