Description

I used an Acer Predator G7750 until this month, but it started to bore me. It couldn't handle any proper gaming anymore and was running very slow. So I decided to build the next one myself. It's a 'showoff' build with RGB but capable of handling nearly anything you could need as a student, for work, editing, gaming and even running a server if needed(8threads CPU). Everything fit right into place without any problems, the cable management is very easy to do with the NZXT S340 Elite, the powersupply offers more than enough power for an overclocked system. The 960 Evo is extremely fast and boots in a few seconds, and even the 2TB Firecuda is very fast for a HDD (it's a Hybrid SSHD). The Asus GTX1080 A8G offers anything a gamer likes, it allowes you to play nearly anything on ultra at 1440p. The monitor was 2nd choice after a little money issue, I wanted the Asus PG278Q but because it was too expensive I got the Acer XF270HUA (thin bezels) allowing to play at 144hz with rich beautiful colours and fast response. People with a AMD grafics card could even use the FreeSynch technology but as I'm runnung a GTX1080 it's more than okay for me :) The Corsair K95 Platinum is the best Keyboard I've ever seen, and played on. The RGB is a nice feature and the finish is extremely upper class. The only thing with mechanical keyboards is the noise but you get easily used to it. The Razer Mamba lays perfectly in hand and with lots of different adjustment features fits anyones desires. The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 sits very good on the head, even for longer gaming sessions. The surround sound is good and with the Razer Synapse software you can ajust EQ and Bass settings as you like. The mic is clear and if you don't need it you don't even have to unplug it simply stick it back into the headphones. The CPU cooler is a little undersized but it's only for a month, the NZXT Kraken X62 is on the way but they have delivery issues. Nevertheless it can hanlde the i7 very well and keeps it around 80-85°C under load. NZXT Kraken X62 has arrived and has been installed, check in the pictures there is also a picture of the cablemanagement and the finished build with the AiO cooler. I'll be doing some testing and posting my opinion about it later on.

That'd be great. Its quite sad to see when someone makes a top range build and only uploads ONE photo!

Hey man, nice build there. Question though, what is the exact model of ur monitor (like what it says on the label). I am looking for one of them and I am confused as some of them have the thick bezel and your's has the thin bezel. Please help, many thanks
