Built this so I could go between my office and my house without worrying about any performance differences (X99 @ home, X370 @ work).

June 2017 Updates:
- Corsair Lighting Node PRO
- Corsair H115i
- EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3
- 10 TB HDD

Part Reviews


8c/16t beast of a CPU. Basically an unbinned 1800x, truly the silicon lottery when you get this.

CPU Cooler

Keeps the CPU nice and cool, even when overclocked. The stock AM4 cooler was sufficient but I idle closer to ambient now and I can overclock slightly higher.

Thermal Compound

If it's available, buy the 11g version. You can never have enough Kryonaut.


- Stable board and good RAM support.
- Consistent BIOS updates.
- Not too flashy.
- No BCLK/Reference clock option.
- Limited I/O ports on motherboard vs higher-priced option.
- Can't POST w/ high RAM speeds when populating 4 DIMMs.


Single rank, binned RAM. With pretty colors.


Fast boot medium. I store anything I need to access instantly here and my large archives of data on my HDD.


T H I C C platter density. Helium sealed.

Video Card

Great card, runs super cool and quiet too.


A must-have case for that wow factor.

Power Supply

Future-proofing until we get portable nuclear reactors for over 100% power efficiency.


Super smooth and decent colors. Great resolution.


Good monitor with good colors.
Wish it had a faster refresh rate but you get what you pay for.


A mouse doesn't make the player, but it certainly helps A LOT.
Love the grip/aesthetics/features.


Amazing headset for the sale price it usually goes for ($35-40).


I had to set my equalizer to turn the bass down so I could hear people speak in movies.

Hi :)

Hitachi - Ultrastar He10 10TB 3.5" 7200RPM: how does it perform? I am interested on buying it for storing alot of games, play them and save them there as well. Is it good for gaming?

I've got my entire steam library (2.92 TiB) stored on it.
I get sequential read speeds of 215 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 200 MB/s so games with small, large files load decently but it's still a HDD - games with many files will take some time. I still really recommend it for the size alone though.
It doesn't take long to load my games from the HDD so I can't complain about anything

Thanks ^_^ I know, SSDs are really fast, but they are too expensive! So the option was HDD with that much capacity. With that read & write speads, gaming won't be no problem. If it's decently for the task, i'm fine with it. I'm patient to wait some time, as long as it doesn't take a year XD

+1 for the build, congrats :)

If you've done the recent BIOS updates, have you been able to run high-speed RAM (3200) when populating all 4 slots?

I haven't updated in a couple months but it's running 2933 on with all slots populated. I recall having to play around with my voltages and a few other memory-specific settings to get it to POST, but maybe it's better on the latest BIOS.

Thanks for the update. That's great news that you were able to get it so high :)
