4K Epic Build Log Take 2 (build log)

Well posted this the other day but our site admin thought he would erase 24 hours haha.

First the plan behind this build was to take a lot of guidance from reviewers I respect and use their advice for parts that I did not have yet. Also needed to upgrade as my GPU and CPU are overheating due to bad cooling on the GPU and a failing aio on the CPU.

When I run Adobe premiere even 1080p 60fps I get jitter and maxed CPU plus throttling GPU. So it's time to change things up. First the CPU and motherboard are being swapped for a 6950x and a taichi x99 board. The CPU will be cooled by a 420mm aio that I will finally have a case it will fit in to review it as well.
The GPU is getting a nzxt aio adapter and a kraken 240 to cool it, also a custom backplate.

Still just using 32gb ram for now.
Hdd is nvme in raid 0 using 1tb p1 crucial drives as well as a mix and match of ssds and hdds to fit about another 24tb of storage in here.
GPU is a msi armor 1080 ti, gamernexus covers the issues with this card that custom cooling hopes to solve.
Also reusing my elgato capture pro and a elgato usb for some fun testing.

Now to show off the parts.

Already lapped the CPU and got custom sleeping to. Really looking forward to this build. Will keep you all posted as I go

Finally getting to this build, the case is like nothing else such great quality and all screws few rivets so you can take it all apart easily.
