I just picked up the first bits today.

I will wait until I get the USB hubs before I do anything about it as I have to pull the PC out of its slot to plug them in.

They should arrive on monday 4/1-2021.

just a question, why you decided for that i7 7700K ? thats quite old model of CPU, isnt it? it isnt available for sale here localy anymore.
I am interested as I have the same socket 1151 with i7 9700F and from the yt videos and stuff I got the impression that there isnt anything that dramatically better available.

It is the top model of what my gen 6/7 mainboard supports.

It is a planned update as I could only afford a I5 7500 when I build the system for my tax return in the beginning of the year. As I dabble in video editing and 3D modeling I also wanted 32GB ram to start with and have later added another 32GB.

If I had gone for a gen 8/9 board at the time I could have gotten either ram or CPU but not both.
