    After some more experience: cable management will never be done. This thing has negative cable management. Hence only right side shown for now. My x399 board is in rma so i did redo it with my old z170 stuff though. Have some more zmt, fittings and a different res on order to tidy it up some more. The super long tube from cpu -> res is so it can rotate up for filling.

    So, for a long time I've loved wood grain and plywood attached to panels but vinyl can look quite good too. This is some walnut vinyl I've gotten on Ebay years ago applied to a used 1080ti that came with a Phanteks Block. After a block clean and hand cutting the vinyl came out a treat.

    Also I've been designing a front grill for my PC-011 Dynamic for a future build ;)

    Added Edifier speakers. Only on the cheap end of the scale but pretty decent for the price, quite surprised.

    Very tidy and unique :thumbup:

    They look good for the price. I picked up a mid range Edifier 2.1 set years ago for the main PC. I rarely use them now, but they punch above their weight, I'm very happy with them.

    Got them for $129 (del) too, on special. It's early days yet but if I'm impressed enough I'll go some of the more exxy ones.

    I've got a fairly sizeable set of Edifer 2.1 speakers that I got cheap as they didn't have the remote to go with the amp (which has three inputs including optical), the damn things rock! Well worth the money I paid for them.

    And I definitely don't need the remote.

    Installed the EK 360 AIO today top mounted with the included RGB fans... and 3 x 140mm Arctic Fans for front intake. All to combat the heat of the 3080. Airflow has gone up and noise has gone down so I’m very happy with the result.

    The EK AIO is silent too and I thought the cpu block looked a bit cheap out of the box with the white plastic shroud but when it’s lit up with colour it’s quite nice and I’m happy with it. BF366C1A-A72F-45C8-943C-B35701283FE2.jpeg

    Very tidy indeed. I had a hell of a time trying to apply (iron on) wood veneer on my mdf case, I just could'nt get the shit to stay flat. No matter how careful I was, with extreme cleaning of the mdf before the application, it would look superb the day I applied it, but the next day it would have bubbles.

    I might try the vinyl contact that you'v udef. One thing concermd me though. What are your thoughts regarding durability?


    Honestly, the best thing I can suggest is upgrade the CPU. The first zen was certainly a disrupter, core count suddenly became a thing, most people had been happy enough with the extra cores.
    Sadly the first gen wasn't really much good for anything but multi core benchmarks. It certainly changed the directiom CPU's were heading though, in a big way.

    Your results are about middle of the road, you may not be able to do better unfortunately. Are you using the stock cooler? All zen chips respond very well to better cooling. If you are using the stock cooler (Wrsith Spire) then then the first thng I'd do would be to stick a 280mm AIO on it, see what happens.

    If a better cooler comes along and its still not performing well enough, the cooler won't go astray for an upgraded CPU, so not a total loss. Just remember if you buy a later model CPU (I'd suggest a 2700X) to update the BIOS to the latest version, using your current CPU before installing a new CPU.

    I hope this info is useful to you. Good Luck !

    Thanks, Have pretty much given up going over 3.8 as the performance is adequate and much better than oem.
    The MB can support 3rd gen so when the 3600 price goes down ill bite
