Wow you built my dream build, man. If you move some of those final product pictures to the front, and maybe get some sleeved cables, you could have a featured build on your hands. Absolutely awesome build.

Yeah, I picked up the mark 1 off amazon for 210 back in June, I wouldn't pay 240 for it. I'm thinking I probably will go for it the next time I feel like splurging.

Thanks! I really like the Mark 1 with its armor, but I have not installed the 40mm fans in it, so I couldn't tell you. I installed the MB into the case and then I saw the fans and decided it wasn't worth taking it out again. LOL I feel like the Mark S is a bit overpriced for what it is (no armor or anything). If I didn't care about money I would have gone with the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Formula with all its armor and LED goodness. B) I am really considering getting some carbon Cablemod cables but idk if it's worth 100 bucks.

Oh, definitely go with some cable combs. You could get a nice black and blue back plate for that gpu, too

Sweet build. +1 Are you wanting to game in 1440p? If so I'd go with the Acer XB271HU. I have it, got it scratch and dent from the Acer Recertified Store for 450. Runs like a dream. I'd also get a back plate for that 1070.

you can easily get 100 fps in games on 1440p with the gtx1080. I'd get a new monitor or else you might as well have gotten a gtx1070.

The fact that you went with last generation components with the z97 platform( cpu, motherboard, memory) and you didn't save any money, in fact you may have spent more than it would have been to buy z170 components. Not to mention the power supply as I mentioned above.

EVGA P2 850W = $135 EVGA G2 650W = $90

Sorry, only $45. There's no way you need 850W.

Can I ask why you went 4690k and not 6600k? You probably could have saved some money, and holy that psu is overkill. I would have opted for an EVGA 650W G2 and used the 60 bucks to get an ssd.

Ahh interesting. You learn something new everyday, I feel like you're still not utilizing the full power of that gtx 1080 though. With the price point of all three of those monitors being close to 600 dollars, I would think you would be better off buying a 1440p ultra wide like a refurbished LG 34UM95 for 600 bucks or if you can spring for it an Acer X34 with gsync. Maybe get the x34 instead of doing the other upgrades you were thinking about. You will be amazed by it if you've never seen it in person, would be fantastic for your driving simulators.

Doesn't make sense why you would output 1440p to 1080p monitors...

Comment reply on mabeosuna82's Completed Build: Bessie Noctis Hero

Ah I was going based off the monitors you have listed in your parts list. Those are 1080p 60Hz monitors.

I believe a Strix 1070 would run those 1080p 60 Hz monitors just as well as a 1080 would. Might as well save a couple hundred with the 1070, or just stick with the 980 you've got there. Seems it would run over 60 Hz in 1080p on most games.

I would not upgrade your RAM, memory is memory and those Fury sticks are just fine unless you're looking for better aesthetics with the TridentZ.

only reason it's under 1500 is because he didn't include the price of the gpu

+1 for your username(TOOL?) and just everything about this build. I have this motherboard and love it, still waiting for the 1070 to post my build. Man I want the x34 but the price is insane!

Where did you get those company logo badges? The ones where you SSD is mounted.

Awesome, Thank you! I realized the front fan that was blowing into the PSU shroud was in the way, so I moved it up and fed the cables through the hard drive cage.

I just built in this case. How did you manage to route the cables to the SSD on the PSU shroud like you did?

Beautiful Build!

A little overkill with that PSU and like the others said you should get a z170 motherboard with that 6600k CPU. Nicely built though. Only so much you can do with no power supply shroud and a semi modular PSU.
