    A totally defective build. No watercooling on the GPU, CPU running hot and fans too loud. A bit more effort, proper custom loop and it could have been much better

    I am a little puzzled - if you're only going to cool the CPU, why not just fit an AIO like the H100i?

    If you're going that far, what's another £80 for a GPU block?

    Maybe a very petty comment. But £1900, and they cant even install the rear fan so "akasa" points the correct way up. Its not like installed the fan upside down to do a better job of hiding the cable, because its just dangling there with a twist tie as cable management...

    And again, £1900, and they are using Cable ties to clamp the hoses onto the barbs. Surely they could stretch to some jubilee clips, or something more exotic like compression fittings.

    Agreed Sim0n. It just seems sloppy all round. Aside from the other issues, I wouldn't touch this anyway because of the noise. For this kind of money, I expect the vendor to be taking noise issues seriously and thankfully most of the decent ones do.

    Corsair CX? Great choice of PSU for a budget build, but in the guts of two grand's worth?

    I don't understand it. We know that Intel used inferior thermal paste and we can drop 20-30 degrees celcius by delidding, yet none of the boutique builders can be bothered to do so? Charge a few bucks extra to add some coollaboratory liquid ultra and bring the temps down so you can overclock properly and still run cool!
