    Cryorig M9i could do the job nicely, small footprint too.

    Well I can still get the card out ok, just have to be careful. :lol:
    Made a mounting bracket in the rear section for my hard drives and cut out bottom intake holes.
    Found a 280mm fan filter for the bottom.

    Cpu temps are better, gpu went up a bit but at least there's no sag :p

    Oh it turns out the little splash of water I had on the Apex happened when I laid the tower down what cause the hang was the 120mm hdd cage fan.
    It was connected with a extension cable and when I went to pill them apart yesterday it was rusted together, and well shorting out a fan header will cause a hard lock like I saw. (Seen it before).

    But nearly a week on and the system is running perfectly still.

    Unfortunately I don't know that there are many solutions that actually look half decent in a show case : (

    I'm not really looking for a sexy show case, just a good airflow case, the Air 540/740 are really good for that.
    Just need to get a little more airflow from the bottom fans now, might have to raise the feet a little to let more air under the case.

    Have a WTB thread running for a GTX780ti ... if you guys know of a good one.
    While the Gtx970 here is good value ... just need a tab more grunt for a score I'm chasing :)

    They are still damn good cards. Just bought 2 myself to get the machine up and gaming.

    Even at stock they smash the bejesus out of my last gaming machine which was watercooled and clocked to hell.

    Tried to up the volts and clock em up, but the 860 watt psu said no. lol

    Just started overclocking the 8700k, so far only locked all turbo frequencies to 4.7Ghz and stable 1.08v prime95 and linx with avx2

    What LLC settings are you guys using on the Z370 Gaming 7?
    AC/DC Load Line: Power Saving (this lowers VID)
    Vcore LLC: Auto (This matches VID at idle/load the closest) Some people say High is best, but Vcore overshoots VID a little

    No idea on Gigabyte.

    Cinebench R15 low volt testing 5Ghz 1.2v is best so far. 1.3v & beyond average. 1.08v take it out of first gear ...

    Here's a Coffeelake OC Guide, but it is Asus based.

    Thanks goto JMPBOY at overclock.net for the guide.

    Is everyone running their 8700K at 5GHz @ 1.3V without issues like those media outlets? I just tried to overclock mine today and the system refuses to boot into windows at 5GHz unless I set vcore to at least 1.32V. Temperature wise my 8700K is miles better than my old 7700K which will overheat at only 1.3V with better cooling.

    Nah, I was too slow to get the first batch of cpus. I got one of the crappy 2nd batch that can only do 4.7Ghz stable without stupid amounts of voltage. :/

    Stinking hot day, but survived running prime all day with avx enabled and fans manually set to ~1100rpm on a h110.

    Hmmmm. You are getting me worried about the one I have on the way.

    Fingers crossed it's not rubbish.
