Description

This is my first build and I wasn't really sure what to call this build but, I have a ton of ROG products and the system is all black/white/RGB (so I can have any color).

I plan on getting some Thermaltake Riing RGB fans in the future and adding a RGB LED strip around the case. I will be adding more pictures soon and overclocking the processor (update below). Also still working on cables for the monitors (finished, pics coming soon).

I am really happy with how this build turned out and I can't wait to get those RGB Fans.

Update: Have overclocked both the CPU and GPU. I easily got the CPU to 4.2GHz (probably could have gone further but I had no reason to). I got the GPU (gtx 1080) to over 2000MHz.

I bought the same motherboard, cpu cooler, and the 1070 varient of the new ROG Strix line-up of GPU's. It's interesting to see photos of what they look like together.

He can always get more if he actually needs it. 32gb is nothing to scoff at.

By using 16 gb dims I will have room to eventually upgrade to 128gb when the time comes

What do you use this rig for? I can't imagine ever needing 128gb of memory

Well yeah, but eventually new games and programs will require more and more ram so, I am preparing for the future.

Dude you gonna be future proof for 20 years!

20 years ago 8MB of RAM was just getting normal - and with 8GB being the norm today (x1000) - if similar change continues, you'd actually need 8TB of memory in order to be future proof for another 20 years - don't under estimate technology progress ;)

what can you tell me about that motherboard I've seen a lot of bad reviews

Well, I haven't had any problems at all. The lights are bright but are not very accurate. I was able to oc my cpu through the bios no problem. It has all of the features of more expensive mobos and looks really nice (it's so similar to the Asus rampage v edition 10, has almost all of the features, just missing a few lights and covers). Overall, I was really happy with it, especially for the price. Do you have any specific questions about it?

I'm just building a computer but i haven't found a mobo with decent reviews the only one that i found was the MSI X99A GODLIKE GAMING CARBON but is too expensive this is what I'm planning on buying http://pcpartpicker.com/list/Xfdz6X what do you think?

Yeah looks like a pretty good build to me. Just a note: the Kraken x61 comes with thermal paste pre-installed so you don't need to buy any extra. The PSU is also very overkill. I am running almost the exact same setup with an 850W PSU. Yours shouldn't draw much more that 550 but if you want the 1200W, go for it. I am unsure about the mobo... It didn't look like it had any features that the cheaper ASUS ROG one (that I got) doesn't have. The ROG also has the LED header which is AWESOME!! I just got my LEDS setup and I will be posting pics this weekend. It is really nice because it saves you about $300 and keeps the mobo lights and LED strip in sync. But this is of course up to you. I really have had 0 problems with this mobo and I am not sure if that more expensive one has any extra features (it is also missing the RGB header).
