Gaming has always been a hobby of mine, but I was unable to play PC games until this year due to never being able to afford a computer. Once I finally had the funds to build my rig, I decided that I was going to do it properly and invest a large amount of money in to the build - this is my first build which I intend to use for 4K gaming and multimedia.
The i7-5820K is a brilliant CPU that I can't fault. Runs stable at 4.5 GHz OC and doesn't get hot at all. At idle temperatures range between 22°c and 29°c. Temperatures tend to stay fixed at 50°c-60°c when using the PC intensively.
Originally, I intended to buy only one 980 Ti but after looking at benchmarks for gaming at 4K on a single card, I decided to invest in two 980 Ti's so that I could play most games at a 4K resolution whilst maintaining a stable 60fps. The cards are overclocked to 1260 MHz on the core clock and 8208 MHz on the memory clock. Idle temperatures range between 30°c-40°c, when playing games at 4K, the temperatures range from 55°c-75°c.
When I first built my PC I only purchased 16GB of RAM. Later on I decided to add another 16GB of RAM to increase overall performance and fill the RAM slots on the motherboard. The RAM is running at 2666 MHz.
Over the course of 2016, I want to slowly maintain and improve my build. Another monitor is probably the next part I am going to buy. I am also interested in creating a water loop for my GPU's.
Cools the CPU superbly, however, the fans can get very loud. If noise is an issue for you, I would consider changing the fans.
The macro keys can be annoying for people who have not used them before as ultimately, the keyboard layout is slightly affected.
Superb sound quality.
