I love hearing feedback whether you like or dislike something, so please leave a comment letting me know if you love it or hate it, or what you would have done differently if it was yours. Thanks for taking the time to look at my build.
After a good three + years of my 4790k build, it was time to move on. I know on paper this wasn't a good choice, but I'm happy with how everything turned out and the performance is fantastic.
Most recent upgrades: i7 7700k, 16GB DDR4 3000 Dominator Platinums, Asus Z270i mobo, 512gb 960 pro m.2 ssd, Ensourced.net custom cables, a different 1080 ti, mx master mouse...holy crap did I actually just upgrade this entire computer? That wasn't the goal. Frick! Also wall mounted the monitor and ran all the cables behind the wall.
i7 7700K - Delidded - 5.1ghz @1.345v - 82C max after passing an hour of ROG realbench. Noticibly faster than the 4790k.
Noctua NH-C14 - Still can't believe I found one new in box when they don't make them anymore. This cooler works great and fits perfectly.
Thermal Grizzly - I'm cheating on my NT-H1 with this paste. It's delicious. I buy the big tubes so I can use it as icing on cupcakes.
Asus Z270i - The aesthetics are exactly what I was looking for. Silver and black matched perfectly, and I was able to change the RGB lights to white. The bios is stupid easy, and the software they provide is intuitive. 10/10 Asus. I'll have a hard time choosing another brand motherboard in the future.
Dominator Platinums - I don't need the RGB fotm. I prefer silver and black and these matched well.
Samsung 960 Pro - I really didn't need this. I can't tell a difference between the m.2 and my sata drive.
Samsung 850 Pro - Rock solid. Will last me a long time.
GTX 1080 Ti - The first one I owned was a reference model but it made too much noise so I bought another one.
Corsair SF 600W - This is a power supply.
Windows 10 Pro - ofc
Noctua NF-F12 - These fans are dope. You should go buy some.
Dell U3415W - #REGERT. Will be upgrading when a new Asus ultrawide gets introduced.
MX Master - My Ducky was dying so I ran to best buy and bought this. Works fine but I'm looking for something different. Not sure what at the moment.
DSX Mechanical Keyboard - Massdrop board with mx blues. I'm looking for one with mx browns so hit me up if you have one.
HD650 - These cans are fantastic. I want to be buried in them when I'm dead.
Schiit Stack - This works fine.
AT2020 USB - I dig this mic. Sounds good and all that. It had some god awful blue led on it though. I disassembled the mic and cut the wire to the LED so the blue wouldn't throw off my color coordination. White LED power bb!
NCASE M1 V5 - If you've worked with this case before then you're fully aware that it is nothing but quality. Went ahead and did the power switch mod because I think it looks bangin.
Ensourced Cables - I was finally able to catch Joey when he was taking orders. Friggen $200 worth of cables later and I couldn't be happier. It's my third set from him and I'll keep going back because quality, and #moremoneythanproblems
Toxic SPC Cable - Sennheiser pulled this hilarious prank and included a ten foot cable with the 650's so I needed a shorter one. Decided to special order from Toxic. Incredible quality from that guy. Took like five months to get it but it was worth the wait.
