For this build simplicity was the key. I wanted a simple black and white theme for my new PC. This was build for gaming and multitasking with enough power to run the latest games and 3D software.
I really like the Asus Strix series so the asus rog strix x99 mobo and asus strix rog gtx 1080 were the core of my build. One problem a friend and I encountered was that the original plate of the 1080 was not compatible with the ek water block for the GPU, so we had to use just two screws to hold it in place and very small thermalpads to stop the vibration. The result was a very good looking watercooled GPU (Take that EK no $40 dollars for your simple plates :D)
My processor is the i7 6800k. I chose it because it's not that expensive for a 6 core processor and it works amazing both in games and multitasking. And with a little OC you have the same stock speed of the i7 6700k and with 2 extra cores for everything else.
For my ram I chose the corsair dominator series because they are very powerful and look amazing (I still need to grab some led plates for them)
I wanted some led illumination, that's why I chose the thermaltake riing led fans. They look very cool and their purpose is to illuminate my case at night. I used 5 120mm fans and another 140mm fan.
And for my cooling solution I just grabbed some EK custom parts and used white pastel fluid to keep the PC within my black and white theme. A friend of mine Ken helped with the design of the loop and the results were very rewarding. My phanteks luxe case was custom modified too with some acrilics to make my watercooling loop stand out.
And that's it guys I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
