On Amazon, after a couple of adult beverages last week, I decided to buy a second 980 TI Hybrid and the rest is history.
So this is the 3rd iteration of my first build and I think besides an eventual case and 950 Pro M.2 upgrade later this year, this build will be a pretty strong for the next year or so.
CPU: i6700K - Popular and stable. I run mine conservatively at 4.6 Ghz and it powers through anything that I need.
CPU Cooler: Using an H100i v2 with 2 Corsair SP120's in push, exhaust. Now that I recently revised my hybrid coolers to push/pull into the case, my CPU temps have jumped about 5C but nothing warranting an upgrade yet.
Motherboard: Basically my requirements were RGB lighting, M.2 functionality and clean lines. The Asus Formula VIII (despite the price) has been awesome to work with. Sound quality is excellent I might add.
RAM: 2 x 8GB Corsair Dominator 3200 Mhz - fast and looks great with the light bar upgrade.
GPU's: 2 x EVGA GTX 980 Ti Hybrids in SLI. The sweet, succulent center pieces of the build. Love, love, love these cards. Run at 50C and 49C at full load. The card can both run 1570 mhz and 3970 mhz OC's comfortably. I posted a Valley bench in the photos at stock clock speeds.
Been running Overwatch at 1440p on max epic settings in the 250 to 300 FPS range depending on the map.
I will update once I can boot up GTA V and Witcher 3.
GPU Coolers: Using 2 SP120's in push/pull as intake to my case
Other case fans: 1 AF120 as intake on the top front of the case, 1 AF140 as the rear exhaust
Case: NZXT H440: It was tight to fit all in and keep every wire I could hidden but it's in there with some magic. Running the Hue+ in my case, below my case and below my desk.
1 x Dell S2716DG - Love this thing! 144hz, 1440p, 1ms, DP and HDMI ports. Looks fantastic for a TN panel once properly calibrated. I run my PS4 on it and it does a great job with scaling up 1080p. The thin bezel is a really classy touch.
2 x DellS2740L - Bought these for work and are the best bang for you buck IPS monitors that I have seen. Really awesome productivity and secondary monitors.
Astro A50s - overall I am happy with this wireless headset
Bose Companion 5 Speakers - pack a punch in a small footprint
My build has continued to evolved and will continue to over the next couple months.
Future upgrades: Evolv ATX (Not sure if tempered or not), Samsung 950 Pro 512 GB M.2
