Just as the name says this is a dream build for me. I have always wanted a serious gamming pc and am fortunate enough to be able to afford one at this stage in my life so I finnaly went for it!
CPU Clock: 5.0 ghz GPU Clock: 2088mhz / 12400mhz Memory Clock: 3733mhz
Case: corsair 460x crystal Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus x Hero CPU: Intell i7 8700k GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 ti FTW3 Hybrid Memory: Corsair LPX 16gb 3733mhz Power Supply: EVGA B3 850watt CPU Cooler: Corsair H150i 360mm Main Storage: Samsung EVO 850 pro 500 gig Additional Storage: 2tb 7200rpm Mechanical
The build went pretty well over all. Alot of forums and youtube reviews of this case say the cable managment is bad and while there is deffinatly room for improvment I really had no issues there. I did have the CPU delided by silicone lottery and am happy I did. My current highest OC is 5.2 ghz at 1.4 Vcore and avx offset of 2, but thats pretty warm at about 81C with prime95. I ended up settling on a more realistic and practical 5.0 ghz at 1.28 Vcore and avx offset of 2 and only hit 75c in prime95 and in real world use gamming after a few hours I have yet to see my CPU or GPU go above 55c so I am pretty happy with the thermals. The GTX 1080 ti is an absolute monster! My research pointed towards even the 1080 struggling at 3440x1440 100hz displays so I decided to go with the ti version that is water cooled by EVGA. Currently I am able to get a stable overclock at 2,088mhz on the core clock and 12,400mhz or so on the memory but have yet to get any higher and still be stable. Would like to hit 2100mhz but even just being at over 2k with this chip is pretty beast. I will give anyone that is reading a heads up that percision x from evga and corsair link dont play nice together and can lead to some glitching on the lights but these bugs are annoying at worst and can be worked around.
Thats pretty much all I have to say about the build, it does what I designed it to do increadably well and have yet to see under 100fps at 3440x1440 for more than 2 seconds and even then the dips are only into about 70ish.
