To be honest mate the 5960x is actually quite disappointing for the price of $1000. rendering times with AUTOCAD and MAYA are blazing fast but quite disappointing for a $1000 CPU. But as i said this was a build where i said **** all and just went with it. The gtx 980's however are great but running them in SLI is kinda pointless because they both have alot of firepower as individual cards. GTX 970 on the other hand i was seriously considering it but then when i was test running a friends gtx 970 i noticed there was 3.5 GB of VRAM rather than 4 at first i thought it was a mistake but a few weeks later #RAMGATE went vital with NVIDIA admitting to the 3.5GB of ram. So i just went with the gtx 980 for the **** of it pretty much

If you have money for the ROG Swift I would 100% recommend getting that. But if you want a cheaper solution stick with this monitor it is an absolute beast of a monitor. The colors are washed out a bit when you first get it but after modifying a few setting (the instructions were on reddit) (takes about a few seconds)t became absolutely gorgeous. Also check out some Benq monitors they are great

dude im currently making the same build as you and i encountered a problem. The phantom 820 has 3 USB 2.0 front panel connectors but the motherboard only has one header. What did you do?

At first I felt like I was a 100% sure to get the ROG swift but then i saw the $800 price tag. I crapped my pants and went with the VG248QE for more than half the price.

Great build! A few questions though: 1. why not 256GB SSD? It is the sweet spot of the ssd 2. why not a more updated version of the g.skill ripjaws series optimized for z87? 3. Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 air cooler? Half the price and better performance based on the benchmarks i've seen. 4. Why that extra case fan? looks like a waste of $10 with that $40 you just saved you could have upgraded your RAM or SSD but +1 for the "i want to tell everyone i got 16GB of RAM" OVERALL: Phenomenal Build +1 +1 +1 +1 +1

Amazing build...+1.. just a few questions:how did you disassemble the 980's? Can you comment a link on the paint and primer you used? and how did you apply the paint?

Why not get a 970 or 980? it would have been a better investment other than that great build

Love this build. I would have recommended getting a pair of 980's rather than 970's or waiting for the 980Ti's being released in Early-mid December. But other than that, this build is Phenomenal. Great Job!

This is a great build i am actually looking for the parts similar to this one.I love the case and the NZXT hue so i was wondering where you put the liquid cooling (on the top, in the front?) and where you put the HDD? Also did you modify the NZXT Hue in anyway?
