Great build! Last build was in 2010. Everything works as it should - lots of power!
I plan on upgrading to a full water cooled system later on.
Like the Jason Bourne reference +1
Its one of my favorite movie series. I thought about building a killer ITX and naming it Thunderball or Goldeneye for my next favorite LOL.
Nice build. The 8700K is still the gaming king even if it isn't exactly the best value, so if this is for mostly gaming, that'll serve you well.
32GB RAM is overkill though.
Thank you. Love the 8700K! Also love my 960 EVO! Yes mostly for gaming but I also dabble in video and audio production from time to time. As far as the RAM, I like to have head room for years to come.
I'd honestly say it's a better deal to get two 16GB kits than a 32GB kit personally, but that's a difference of like $40 or so if I remember right.
At the time yes, about a $40-$50 difference but the 32GB kit can with the cooler and I think it was a great extra.
Ooh, that's a good deal then.
And a fun one! Thank you.
np, i love the green!
I also think the ram cooler and 32gb of ram were overkill but if its what u want than fine with me!
Looks great in red too! Thats the great part about a fresh new build - you pick what you want.
I'd say 32GB of RAM is overkill, as well as a RAM cooler. But it looks good, so great build!
Thank you! Overkill and keeping it cool - great for longevity! I build to last.
How does the Gpu on air perform in this case?
I will upload further specs including temps later on. Right now im only running dual basic ASUS monitors (1920x1080 @60fps) so I barely tap the true power of the 1080TI.
Classic gaming build! 32 GB is a lot of RAM though...
A lot of RAM now - but 5 years from now 32GB will probably be the norm.
How did you get a CLC to fit in the case..... I bought http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-liquid-cooler/masterliquid-ml240l-rgb/ for mine and CANNOT get it to fit with the fan mounts from the side. The hoses just aren't long enough. Any tips?
