Kinoberus has risen. Noctua DH-15 cooler, i9-9900K, ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero mobo, Samsung Evo+ 970 2TB NVMe, a spare Samsung 850 Evo 500GB, and my old 1070 GTX. Used a Phanteks case. This is the Alpha build.

yeah they're pretty chill. the DH-15 is friggin huge, my case is like 26cm deep and the fan above the ram is like 1cm away from the case panel, it fit in with a fingertip's width. I literally had to offset the second fan because the ram sticking out was below it, nice that they offer that kind of versatility and added fins to the heatsink to avoid the ram.
also i dig the whole brown owl/finned heatsink aesthetic with the logo since I'm nocturnal as fuck. and brown.
I got a be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 which is basically the same design but it would literally not fit in my case because it's such a behemoth so I had to change to a Dark Rock 3 which was just slightly shorter and a single fan design.

Dark Rock Pro 3 Dimensions: 21 x 15.5 x 17.5 cm Noctua DH-15: 23.5 x 27.9 x 19 cm
These heatsinks are pretty fucking enormous man, and so are the 140mm fans. I literally went out of my way to make sure I picked out a case that would be fat enough to contain that coolness, even so I wasn't 100% sure this beast would fit until I actually installed everything.

My life just changed.
For the record, I do not endorse the use of RGB lighting of any form with keyboards. It's a revolting trend, although I will admit this picture looks better because of it. And yes, I am posting exquisitely comfortably from my sofa while using a Corsair K63 wireless keyboard with a fitted lapboard and a Logitech G305 wireless mouse.
Unfortunately, I've had to face a sad truth: the LG C8 in my living room only supports HDMI 2.0 instead of 2.1. This means my dream of owning a 3080 Ti and running Cyberpunk 2077 in 4k@120hz on my LG C8 with a wireless mouse and keyboard sadly, cannot happen. This is because HDMI 2.0 only supports 120hz on 1080p, so it will be nice to sit on the sofa and play the game with maxed settings, 120fps and HDR enabled, I will be stuck doing so in 1080p. Of course I can play games in 4k@60hz, but realistically speaking this isn't something I'll probably ever do. More realistically, I'll probably buy a 4k 144hz monitor, and then eventually an LG C9 or C10. Also the surround sound really helps when running Call of Duty, emulated 7.1 on HyperX headphones is fun and all but nothing beats actual surround sound.
My fucking god composing posts on this sofa is comfy. Almost has an elegant, refined feel to it, as if I should be swishing a glass of aged whisky and taking ceremonious sips in between the flurries of mechanical keystrokes. Everyone on Earth should buy a goddamn lapboard and a wireless keyboard and mouse, you will unironically feel like royalty.
That does look quite comfy. I'd look into getting a new office chair instead of the one I've been using for like 9 years now that I got for free because work was throwing it out, but my newfound unemployment also means I no longer have access to trucks for moving shit around.
