Don’t really know what happened with the water block but once I was done tightening it down it was a bit askew and I didn’t feel like redoing the thermal paste.

I had some outside corner trim sitting around after a bathroom remodel and put it to use hiding the unsightly bottom edge audio/usb/front panel headers.

Pretty happy with how it turned out considering I’ve never attempted any real cable management in my 20 years of pc enthusiasm.

Me as well. Also the plastic bit at the bottom left needs sanding...deburring.

OP plz don't get me wrong...I enjoy what you've done, I'm just critical of everything.
Haha no sweat. It’s polystyrene I cut with bottom barrel snips not something I put my heart and soul into. You should’ve seen the initial rough cut.

it’s not really noticeable from a couple feet away and serves its purpose well enough

I didnt even notice it until you metioned it. It almost looks like it in some of the wrong holes on the CPU bracket as it is "**** eyed" too.

How are temps under load OP?

Edit I obviously didnt even read the title as he mentions it :ROFLMAO:
They’re on point which is why I didn’t go back and fix it. I hate hate HATE the process of applying paste and mounting the hs. That’s where my ocd gets triggered.

it seems that Corsair used some sort of 2 piece mounting bracket that allows for some wiggle room and neglects to mention it in the install instructions, so while I was ever so carefully tightening it down it was slowly moving itself into “**** you” position :LOL:

i can try to play it cool but it was pissing me off. Time to stress test and see if I have to reapply paste. All these years I avoided windowed cases because I knew I was a deadly combination of anal and lazy.

wife: “I don’t know why you’re putting so much time into that. It’s just going to get dusty.” lol she’s right
