So I haven't built a computer in a while. Since the GTX 580 was the best card. So, it was finally time for me to get on up to speed and get this done. I actually had almost no problems with this build. I had to RMA my first set of RAM because I couldn't boot into installing windows from USB. I ran a MemTest and I came back with 150+ errors in the like 2nd pass. I got the new set of RAM in. Same problem. I RMA'd the motherboard. Got the replacement and, what do ya know, same problem. I finally RMA the CPU. Replaced what I had and success!
I wanted to go with an all or mostly white build. So hot right now. I feel like I achieved my goals and more with this build. This has been an almost strictly gaming machine. Games and the spattering of making memes and gifs, haha. I had no intent of getting into VR... but I have a Rift on the way to give that a go. Up next for my build are getting SSD covers so that area is a little cleaner. Will probably find a used 1080 Ti to upgrade to over the summer, too, since it seems like the 11xx series is going to be a bit away. I'm also going to ship my CPU off to Silicon Lottery get get it delidded. Going to also be replacing my ages old OCZ Vertex 3 (I paid $270 for 120 GB back then!) soon as well. Probably going to go with another M.2 NVME.
