Take a look at the GA-Z97X-UD3H it's a little better than this one and has better overclocking abilities.

No complaints, I never tried OC'ing with it at all. I did have trouble getting Win10 installed but that was due to an incompatibility with the cpu. I had to disable one of the cores in order to install Win10 then once installed I had to delete a file in the Windows directory before I could re-enable the 2nd core again.

The person this build is for is an older lady, she doesn't own a cell phone and laptop screens these days are just too small for her poor eyesight. Since I built her last PC 10 years ago she wanted me to build her another one. All she does is go on Facebook, play Spider Solitaire and does some online banking, nothing too serious.

Not much, they are pretty silent even when running at 100%

When paired with that intel anniversary cpu it's like a match made in heaven, overclocks very very well.

Ah, yeah you're right, I forgot we moved the H105 down to the front of the case after we added the 2nd 295X2, so yeah the H105 is intake and the 295X2's are exhaust :)

Nope, the three 120mm on the front panel are the intake and the H105 and 295x2's are all exhaust, gotta get that heat out not in :)

We're planning on replacing the RAM with 32GB of Corsair Dominator in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out, I'll post benchmarks

We had a 1300 G2 in there and it wasn't quite enough to run both R9 295X2's, we have to bump up to a 1600 G2 to have enough power.

If your are ordering an all in one radiator like the Corsair H110, it comes with the fans and all the mounting hardware to attach the fans to the radiator and to mount the radiator to the case.

Not at all, the NZXT H440 has removable drive trays which made installing the R9 295X2's problem free.

You should have lots of room front to back for the H60, you might not get a fan in the back of the case though because it may be blocked by the fans on the radiator, unless you mounted the fans from the H60 on the top or something but that might not look too clean.

LOOOOOOVE that case! I built a rig for a buddy of mine last summer using that exact case, it's so nice to work in. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/QkLD4D

Oh I love that case, such good quality and nice to build with. Unfortunately I sold that system a few years back.

Just personal preference, I don't normally trust the random stuff they apply on at the factory. I clean it off and apply my own just so I know it's done properly and making full contact.

Yeah for sure it would have, it all came down to cost in the end, we got the Vengeance for $194.66 total, the Dominator would have cost us $361.72 minimum for the same amount.

Definetely a huge improvement, we're now able to sustain 60+ fps @ 4K :)

Heh we have 3 but the Maximus VII only supports 2 so we put the other one in my other rig (BlackDragon IV https://pcpartpicker.com/b/kMmG3C)

I don't believe so, unless Asus adds it in a future firmware upgrade

The reason I put them up top is because those gpus dump a ton of heat from those rads and I didn't want all that heat in the case and I didn't want to reverse the airflow in the case.

Total garbage, damn thing won't break 30fps on some games. Can't figure out why, been tweaking it for two weeks now and just can't get good performance out of it. Hits 21000 in 3DMark Firestrike, which I believe is low for the hardware. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Total crap, only hitting in the low 20k's on firestrike, got some more tweaking to do just haven't had the time yet.

Haven't had any throttling issues that we've noticed but we are having some really goofy issues with different games such as Dead Rising 3, when launched it causes a huge memory leak and takes off, 2 4 6 8 10 12Gb of RAM until it runs out and just locks up. Still playing with settings, we'll get her all figured out :)

Ok, I'm installing the R9 295X2 x2 and the EVGA Supernova 1600w PSU this Saturday afternoon come hell or high water!

That's 100% correct, +1 in the bottom for the psu fan :)

The reason we went with the R9 295X2 was because we eventually wanted to go with 2 of them in crossfire (which we have now done) and at the time the Titan-Z was $3000. The thought of running 4 780Ti's in SLI (~$2400@~$650/card) also crossed our mind but would have cost more than two R9 295X2's we picked up for $2339.38 total.

I have replaced the AF fans with SP fans all around now :)

*Update: (Oct 24, 2014): We have both R9 295X2's and the 1600w EVGA power supply now. Just need to find time to remove the old power supply and R9 295X2, relocated the H105 to the front, install both R9 295X2's, replace the stock fans on the Sapphire Rads, and install the new power supply. Should have pics of the completed project up by Halloween if all goes well :)

It's up on the top, replaced the stock fans with SP120's that come with the color rings.

So, this is where we're at: We have the 2 new R2 295X2's ready to go, however the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 can only supply +12V@108.3A, we need +12V@112A (28A of current to each of the 8-pin auxiliary power connectors, 50A of combined current to the pair of 8-pin auxiliary power connectors) to power both cards, so rather than take a chance and end up blowing the power supply and potentially other hardware, we're going to grab a LEPA G1600 just to be safe, this will give us +12V@133A. We're also replacing all of the AF120's with SP120's this should provide better airflow due to the design of the front bezel (so I'm told).

Yeah for workstation purposes it will work like a dream. It works well for gaming on our R9 295X2 on most games we get ~25-30fps, we've got another R9 295X2 to put in there now so that should bump us up to ~40-60fps we're hoping.....hoping ;)

It's an absolutely amazing monitor in every way, just make sure you have the horsepower to run it, we quickly found out that one R9 295X2 was not enough to tame this beast on the most graphically demanding titles such as Star Citizen

True, been going over different configs and might actually put the GPU rads on top and move the CPU rad to the front. All depends if everything will fit/reach. Guess we'll find out once we get in there :)
