Description

A build for my friend Brody (he made up the title). He uses the machine for gaming, recording and editing.

Some key specs are the GTX 1080, i7-6800K, M.2 Boot Drive, 64gb RAM.

A problem was the case -- We originally had a Corsair 200C but the cooler did not fit so we opted for the current case.

Now, the final product. It is VERY quiet, and performs like a beast. Looks amazing too.

Part Reviews

CPU

Awesome CPU. Great overclocking and overall performance.

CPU Cooler

Quiet, high performance. Amazing.

Motherboard

Great budget X99 motherboard. Has everything you need but running SLI would be a tight squeeze and then again if you have a WiFi card like I do then its not an option. There are ways around this, but thats the way it is I guess.

Memory

Awesome ram. I wish I could control the effects via software or something though, but still awesome.

Storage

SUPER Fast. Though the 960 Pro just came out, this is still a great and valid option. Using it as a boot drive and it works amazingly.

Storage

Works perfectly. Fast, reliable and has a high capacity. It performs as advertised.

Video Card

Simply great. Quiet and ultra high performance. RGB Lighting is nice too.

Case

AWESOME Case but the icon display at the front is very dim.

Wireless Network Adapter

Doesn't have that great range, but works great.

Mouse

Great mouse, though the feet get scratched easily and the usb connection at the end of the cable is very hard to plug into any usb port. This isn't just my model of the mouse, my friend Brody bought the exact same mouse and is having the same problem. Could of been 5 stars.

I must congratulate you for being able to do cable management that badly

Please organise those cables! For the love of god! I know you have watercooled the GPU and CPU, but you still want decent and even airflow.

Sweet build.

How far were you able to over-clock this chip?

Having any problems with the power supply after 8 months of use?
