Description

The main purpose of this build is for development testing of a software we create though I will do some gaming in my down time. I ended up with a nice black and white theme and spent a little extra on some finishing touches. So far everything seems to be working great. I have not OC'd the CPU yet but intend to push it to ~4.0Ghz.

Currently I am waiting for an RMA on the m.2 PCIe SSD that was DOA. I pressed onward with the build and installed the Windows 10 Pro OS on the Samsung 850 SSD. No issues to date with windows 10 compatible drivers.

Oh, man. If I redid my just completed build, I would do a black/white build. I think it looks really clean.

Did my son's pc in black and blue. Cool part with the white and the RGB LEDs is I can tint it to whatever I want LOL.

That is very true. I just have the personal preference of blue being my favorite color. I like your thinking on that part though! I might consider on my next build in like 2 or 3 years xD

+1 to you and your build. You can tell thought and effort was put into the cable management and I can appreciate that. That price tag, tho. Yikes!

Does software testing (or whatever else you plan to do with this PC) make full use of that 64GB of ram?

And what's that card attached to the hard drive cages?

Thanks! The software does utilize a good deal of RAM but 64GB probably not. I just can't bear the sight of empty slots LOL. The card on the drive cage is the ASUS fan expansion card that came with the Mobo. It can be installed in one of the 5.25" drive bays but the toolless design of the bays didn't allow for it. It fit there and didn't look half bad.

Nice. I think attaching that fan card there looks good, too.

I was just curious about the 64GB of ram, too. I agree that I wouldn't have been happy with empty slots there myself.

Thanks! The back plate was an after thought. I got it from V1 Tech. Thought it finished out the look nicely.

Finally ! Someone with that display that is answering comments ! How do you like it ? Should I buy it for my voyage to new lands of the so called 4k expensive race ? I would like to get a monitor like this or this one eventually.

Thanks! I really like the pc. I am not installing too much till the replacement m.2 drive shows up. So far I like this display. I have 2 31.5" ASUS 4k displays on my other rig. For the money i think this 28 is really nice. For the record My other rig has 2 ASUS gtx 970's. I drive each monitor individually (no SLI).

Not usually a fan of windowed cases but must say you build looks stunning! Solid component choices and great attention to detail +1

Thanks, My default case is the Coolermaster HAF 932 Advanced series. They do have a much smaller window and are relatively quiet with the large low rpm fans. Just thought I'd try something different this time.

It certainly worked out nicely! Shame about the 951, you'll be flying once it's in, really like the vertical M.2 orientation on these Asus boards, mine stays nice an cool.

$7.48 per GB for mine and $8.06 per GB for yours. I just wanted more of it. From looking at your build, which is very nice BTW) I'm not all to different from you :-) just a different application. As I indicated in the comments this machine was really built for a specific application. 32GB would have been sufficient as I do regularly exceed 20 GB. My daily driver is configured with 32GB and 2 GTX 770's.
