This machine is a 4K gaming beast with the ability to run CPU intensive programs. The build went really smooth as all the parts on this list are high quality and play together nice.
The i7-5930K is an extremely powerful processor. It has a lot of potential built into it and is certainly one of the more flexible pieces in this build. So far it rips open a new dimension of speed for multitasking, but also opens an avenue for future system growth as it will be able to handle programs that utilize hyperthreading. This processor also manages to allow for better graphics processing, as it can run SLI at x16/x16 due to the 40 pci express lanes that it boasts. Overall this processor is great, though maybe a bit overkill for most builds. I haven't tried to overclock it, but it is an option for the future as I continue to upgrade this machine.
The Noctua NH-D14 is a beast of a cooler. I mean just look at it, it's huge! Don't let it's size scare you, this cooler is an amazing piece and keeps my CPU running cool at all times. It's two sets of 6 heat sinks are an engineering masterpiece, and succeed in conducting a large amount of heat into it's fins. The fans that it comes with are insanely quiet and move a lot of air. The installation of this piece was a little tricky, but it was mostly getting the screws that utilize springs as washers to catch into the included socket mount. This did require a bit of force and was nerve-racking as I did not want to damage the pins on the CPU. Also this thing blocks the ram sticks so it's important to get low profile ram when putting this in a build. Solid cooler keeps my CPU at 25C at no load and 40C max at the highest loads.
The ASRock X99 Extreme4 is a solid motherboard with a lot of options. It has plenty slots and has the ability to meet almost all peripheral needs. It's UEFI bios is sleek and user friendly, and sets you up to overclock if you are looking to push some more juice out of your components. This is my first ASRock product, and I am impressed with how high quality their boards are. It's very sturdy and well designed with all sorts of nice mechanisms in place for efficient heat dissipation and accident prevention (Surge, Lightning, and ESD protection). Another nice point is 12-phase power design which keeps components powered efficiently. Nothing bad to say about this board. It is solid and will supply a good base for the future of this system.
The Samsung EVO 1TB SSD is perfect for a gamer with a flexible budget. 1 TB allows a wide variety of games and applications to boot from your SSD to gain a huge performance boost and to decrease loading times. Nice slim design and fast as hell. I plan on getting a 2 TB HDD to store documents, music, and movies on as it is a bit of a waste to put anything but applications on this guy.
The G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4-2400 ram is well...its ram. Good solid ram no issues getting it to be recognized. There isn't much to say here, but if your getting DDR4 might as well go for a 4 stick pack to gain a minor performance increase as you need to get 288-pin ram anyway.
The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 graphic cards are slick, cool, and well-built. The Windforce cooling system Gigabyte has utilized is top-notch and keeps the cards running cool. One of the chips on the top card goes up to about 50C when under full load. Most likely the SLI is impeding airflow and causing some heat buildup, but 50C is not a dangerous temperature at all. Also the back plates are a nice touch and ARE missing in some manufactured 970 solutions.
The Corsair 760W is an awesome power supply. It's modular design keeps the case clean and it's platinum rating makes me sleep better at night.
The Corsair 760T is a really nice modular case. Its use of a mixture of plastic and metal parts allows for a sturdy but relatively lightweight case. It has a great hatch behind the motherboard for routing cables, and its windowed panel lets you show off your sexy build.
Overall this build is a fantastic all-around enthusiast build. If you have the coin, these parts won't let you down. Let me know what you think, and also feel free to ask questions about the parts and thought process behind this build.
