Finally upgraded my 7 year old computer, previously and i3 with an amd 6870 in an ncase m1. It's now an 8700k with an asrock fatal1ty z370 and an evga 1080. I used a be quiet dark rock tf cpu heatsink which doesn't quite fit without modification. I had to dremel off about 1/8" of the lower heatsink in order to clear the ram's heatsink. The cooler clears the gpu by about 1/4".

It's really quiet, the loudest thing in my computer now is an old laptop hdd I had been using for extra storage, which will probably be removed soon. It's a wee bit faster now, too.
