I've been saving and planning this system for over two years now. Had to change it several times over the past dozen months to accommodate new parts and what not that have come out. Finally this year I got around to buying everything and building my first PC! I couldn't be happier. The Strix 1080 is a monster for 1440p gaming, and I love being able to play eSports games like Rocket League and Overwatch at ridiculous framerates on the PG279Q's 165hz display. I managed to get the 7700k to 5.0Ghz stable with 1.325V on the Vcore. The 1080 is overclocked at 1935Mhz and will boost up to 2050Mhz but will settle in at 2038Mhz after about an hour or so. Not much over the stock OC profile, but hey i'll take the extra 100hz or so. Unfortunately, the Kraken x62 has to stay sideways because of clearance issues with the G.Skill ram, but I don't mind too much. Noticed the thermal compound wasn't super great on the Kraken, so bought some of the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut and got about a 6-7 degree improvement! Well worth every penny, and I hope to get many years of happiness out of this beast!
(Note: I hand built the desk out of an IKEA countertop, shelves, and various brackets and legs. The empty space on the right side is for when the bae finishes their PC too!)
