Yeah I updated the bios by borrowing my brother's 2600x. It went pretty smoothly, I can't think of anything to tell you.

Looking back at it, the keyboard on the list isn't exactly the same as the one i have. Anyways, for a cheap keyboard, it's great. Nothing's broken, the keys feel fine, cable is a little short but not bad.

I wouldn't recommend you get 2 RX 480s though

Probably because the Xeon is cheaper.

Interesting part choices. I would have gone with a Xeon for the type of work your are doing. For $1000 you could have gotten a 12 core xeon http://pcpartpicker.com/product/DGL7YJ/intel-cpu-bx80660e52650v4.

Higher resolutions wouldn't tax the CPU much more, though.

Did you overclock the RX 480? I have the same one but I could only get 1360MHZ stable no matter the voltage or power limit.

I agree, Or buy a pair of Used Xeon E5 2670, server LGA 2011 motherboard and server ram. And for the gpu, the R9 380 is overpriced, and RX 480 can be found for the same price.

I am curious too. Maybe he has a lot of background applications running?

Actually, most games don't make use of hyperthreading, so the I7 won't be needed. Plus the I5 4460 is the maximum a cpu you will need for most games, so even the 4690k will be overkill.

Gah! Case looks amazing from the inside, but that cable management... You have a modular case for a reason.

I agree. If you're gonna spend $4224.59 on a pc at least tidy up the cables. That cramped case + spagetti cables make for bad airflow.

I think that gpu is fine. pcb boards are pretty flexible.

I like the parts choices as cpu upgrades are more difficult and risky than a gpu upgrade.

For the record you need to format and install windows in UEFI for anything larger than 2TB

Ram speed really won't make much of a difference... But I agree on the liquid cooling.

Don't trust seagate barracuda drives, had 2 1TB and 2 2TB drives fail in the past 2 years.

+1 for trying something new, but i'd start doing backups off that sshd if I were you.

Sorry to break the news to ya, but Seagate's 3tb barracuda drive is their least reliable drive. Source: http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/175089-who-makes-the-most-reliable-hard-drives
