I started this dream of building my first computer in 2012 on a deployment in Afghanistan. When I got home life started and this went to the back burner.
I ran into some issues as soon as all the parts arrived. I started with the ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero and the inwin 805 mid-tower case. First thing was the case was to small for the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 FTW GAMING HYDRO COPPER graphics card, couldn't close the glass side. After I installed everything I could not load Windows, after countless of hours and days on the phone, ASUS told me it was a memory conflict. After trying three different types of memory, was not the memory. I was frustrated so, I ordered a new board from MSI (Z270 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM). After receiving my new board, same problem. It was a bad processor!!!
I returned the processor to NEWEGG and they sent it back nest day air! While I was waiting I ordered a new case from EVGA _EVGA-DG-87 Full Tower).
Once everything arrived and I put it all together.........no problems! This machine runs like a dream and performs way better then I ever thought possible.
I use this for 4k video editing and gaming.
Thanks and good luck on your build!
