    A dual fan liquid cooler for the 90W CPU, and the stock cooler on the 250W GPU? I bet if you ran it the other way round you'd easily get 10% more in-game performance. Yes, there are no partner cards available, but it's not beyond the wit of man to design a bracket to stick one thing to another thing and for £2.1k it's a disappointment

    As someone who has an FE Ti, going with a case that has no sound dampening is a BAD idea. It is the loudest card on memory - I used to have dual 670s, which pushed up the internal temp, which triggered all fans to go on full tilt, this card is louder than ALL of that.

    +1.

    I think this PC looks stunning, but its at the expense of things I value most. These glass cases offer very little sound proofing and yet the Ti cards need it more than ever. I will be interested to see the new 3rd party cards in a Fractal R5 case.

    That was also result in the warranty for the GTX 1080Ti being voided. Rather than berating Scan, berate Nvidia for releasing the GPU with such a poor cooler.

    Also, whilst the 7700K is a 88W TDP part at stock, it'll draw much more than that at 4.8GHz OC.

    It's a real shame about that case, actually. I'd like to build a new PC within the next year and this case would be a real contender - it's just stunning. But the lack of sound proofing is a complete deal breaker

    Aye, and that bloody 3 fan arrangement. Those fans are not the quietest, and under load produce a fair bit of din. I know it's mostly for the RGB element which Noctua don't have, but they really should have gone for Noctua fans. Before I got this sodding FE (honestly I'm replacing it with an aftermarket the first chance I get), my PC was practically silent.

    The fan on the card is currently running at..1100RPM, and it is still very noticeable. But you can't turn the fan down lower than that! It's a bloody nightmare

    Lian Li do some beautiful cases with tempered glass sides, that have great sound proofing. A little on the big side and a lot on the expensive side but worth it
