Streaming/Gaming/Modeling build. I bought the NZXT S340 case and pretty much ran with the color scheme from there. Though I started from humble beginnings. I saved for quite some time and finally was able to ascend to a full pc. PS, new keyboard and mouse planned. I call it the Oreo.

The large amount of storage is explained by, 1 of the SSD's I already had. Can't be having only one SSD tray filled can we? I run both the 850 500gb in a raid 0 for speed. All games are installed on these two besides a few exceptions. Games only. No valuable data. The OS and games I want faster "loading" times in like BeamNG or Fallout are on the 960 Evo. The Seagate 3tb is for all other storage like all of my models and streams plus whatever else I want.

Hope you guys like it, I put a lot of time and money into it, I it use every day and love it. Feels good to be part of the PCMR. Fresh 7700k Delid and new 1440p 165hz gsync monitor.

Part Reviews


Couldn't ask for better performance or reliability. The paste between the IHS and the cpu die is terrible quality, shame on Intel. Delidded using the RockitCool 88 kit and Conductonaut from Thermal Grizzly. 29c-34c idle and under a hour load so far of 5.1ghz at 1.36v it hit a max temp of 76c!!

CPU Cooler

Had this before my CLC. Loved it.

CPU Cooler

Meh. I went with Corsair for their rock solid warranty. I should have bought an NZXT Kraken. The fan and aio wires do not detach from the waterblock making cable management a pain in the ***. The tubes are sleeved which is nice. They, however, are not mounted on the side and capable of swiveling. Thus when I put my side panel on I have to slightly force it on. This is probably isolated to my setup though. There are some 3D printable replacements for the little accents which I plan to get a white version of. Tubes are not hinged, power and other wires not detachable. Works.


Was great until last BIOS update. Effectively broke the HD audio port on my top panel. Classic Asus audio issues. RGB cannot be turned off even though the option in the bios to turn it on in all states other than off is selected. Great board otherwise. Matches my color scheme.


Corsair ram. Nothing else to really say.


Noticeably faster transfer speeds and a lot faster in the OS in general. I got heatsinks for it and I think it looks great.


Samsung Evo SSD. Nothing else to say.

Video Card

Great card. Looks are a bit off for my build imo. Current OC is 2126 core and 4498 mem. Have not pushed the memory any further. Never hits 70c in games. Painted the shroud white and it looks amazing.


First PC case ever so I may be biased. I loved the simplistic look. Great for cablemanagement. Looks great with the elite panel fitted on.


Temp monitor. Worked well enough. It's for sale lol


1440p 165hz gsync at $400


It works. Though the backlight isn't bright enough/the keycaps are not transparent enough to really see the keys unless you're looking from a basically top-down view. Doesn't have the backlight on when you turn your PC on. Pretty cheap, get something better.


Like honestly have had for like 3 years. No issues.


Machine washable. Looks and feels great. I currently use it to keep my forearms off of my desk surface and hardly as an actual mousepad. Recommended.


Get NZXT or Thermaltake RGB fans. Corsair flopped on these. Physical controllers need to die for led or RGB of any kind, especially on case fans. I was able to route it just fine but still. It's 2017 guys. Cannot turn them off. Other wise great fans and super bright. The RGB strips are individually addressable and someone has actually made their own physical controller somewhere on the internet. So yeah there's that.

kombski 1 Build 2 points 17 months ago

Man....lovin the build....need to jump on those cable combs asap!

James2406 submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

For your build?

kombski 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

Exactly! Idk what I was thinking...I didn’t order them when I got the cables. I think I couldn’t find one that fit both GPU power cables in one comb.

James2406 submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

meh, I had to saw some of mine in half to make them fit, just get some 24 pin combs and cut them.

What fps does that get on rust?

James2406 submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

165fps on all low. To match my 165hz of course.
