    Picked up my case and monitor this morning so I was finally able to rebuild my computer with all the upgrades I got.
    Took me the whole day as I had to clean things out and pretty much take everything apart and put it back together in the new case except the CPU and RAM.

    What's Old:
    i5-3570k Oc'd to 4.3 GHz
    G.Skill 8GB DDR3-1333 RAM
    Asrock Pro 3 Z77 Mobo
    Crucial 120 GB SSD
    Toshiba 2TB HDD
    Cooler master G650m PSU


    What's New:
    Gigabyte GTX 1070
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler
    Game Max Falcon case in black (Full size case with two 120mm blue LED fans pre-installed)
    Crucial 240GB SSD
    G.Skill 8GB DDR3-1333 RAM (The exact same as my old ram for compatibility)
    120mm Cooler Master Blue LED case fan
    Acer GN246HL 24" 1080P @ 144Hz [ Not pictured ]

    Nice man, very cool upgrades and you're gonna love the 1070 especially with the 144hz display!

    Thanks. 4.3 GHz isn't fully stable yet. Upped voltages again a little bit.

    Thermals are fine and I'm not nearing the limit yet. Don't wanna roll back to a slower speed as it feels so close to being right.

    I spent something like 900 euros which is roughly 900 dollars now but I feel I got good value for money. And the monitor and GPU were about 650 of that alone.

    Edit: In just warframe alone, the game actually looks better textured despite me running the same GPU and settings before in my previous case.

    I had to lower my OC to 4.0 GHz.

    *Shudders* I feel so..... casual! @icebalm :P

    One day I'll figure out this "extreme" OCing as you call it ice. But not today.

    I'm on a diet, so no carbs.
