Nice build!

Is that a case stand I see in the first picture?

The XMP profile was disabled, seems to be running fine at 3200 now. Thanks for the tip!!

Thanks for the kudos!

I agree the 6700k is a bit overkill at this moment but I wanted to future-proof my first build. Also I was able to grab one on sale for $315 (no tax or shipping). Maybe a game like Civilization VI will put it to good use.

For the 1080, I used NowInStock to get one from Newegg -- it was $649.99 + $6.99 shipping at the time (tax free!).

Thanks for the suggestion. I do plan to get another fan for the front and probably swap out the stock cooler radiator fans at some point. Currently the front fan and CPU cooler fans are set as intake, and the rear fan is set as exhaust.

Weird, maybe I just got a bad stick of RAM? Are there any other settings in the UEFI BIOS that you changed besides setting the DRAM Frequency to DDR4-3200MHz?

VERY similar to my recent build... http://pcpartpicker.com/list/mBcCLD

Looks great! I like the 3 fans on the front of the case. +1

PS: tryout the new DOOM if you're into FPS
