      Will be sure too let you know Snotts how it goes. Hoping to push it to 4.5 - 4.6 maybe. This is meant to be the bee's knee's for the 1151 sockets.

      Depending on the ram will determine how far I can go. I'm going to start with the Corsair 4x4Gb DDR4 Dominator Platinum C16 2800MHz. Running in quad.

      See how it goes.

      Let you know.

      Here is how my new build is going atm. After trying to do some home work on my choice of tower,

      I have finally started installing the hardware into the new system. I chose to go with the

      Thermaltake W100 tower. For choice of ram I have gone with the New Corsair 32GB DDR4 3466MHz

      Vengence Black heat spreader with red LED.

      Still have quite a bit work to do but slowly getting there.

      Nice going, Hitman!  This looks like a sweet, custom build, complete with case modification.  Looking locally for the same parts, I see you went higher in cost than I've considered going for a gaming build.  Upper level motherboards seem overkill to me, with the exception of SATA connections available.  Hell, I'd settle for a mATX if it had enough fan headers & SATA connections to suit me.

      I was never bitten by the "water cooled" bug, since I saw it happen to family members who custom build.  But they are pretty to look at.  And your's has some nice looking twists & turns in there.  Will the coolant glow?

       

      I can't tell from the video, is there enough clearance for RAM under the coolant tube?  What about graphics card length?  Surely, you've checked for these things...

       

      Again, Nice going, keep us posted.  (I thumbed up your video)

      Well Wadcutter, I had the money at the time to spend, hence why I spent it on Mid end gear.

      After installing the tubing I found out you can actually get UV piping. So I'm going to stick

      with what I've done and maybe use a Uv liquid. Been told you can get it.

      There is enough room to get the ram in and out and enough room for the video card once

      I have removed the top plate and fans. It will be liquid cooled any way.

      Well stage two of my "No Name" Pc is complete. First water loop of two is up and running. No leaks.

      Took a very long time to fill. Slight problem with micro bubbles on inside of glass

      reservoir, trying to get rid of slowly but surely. Next to do is the video card

      water loop.
