Description

This PC was planned for about 4 months before I pulled the trigger. Would have been alot sooner if the GPU market didn't explode. I wasn't able to get EVERY part I desired i.e. 1080ti Strix OC :-(. Luckily I have a good friend who parted with his Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Edition for far less than market price.... and bonus it's water cooled!!

Overall I'm extremely happy with the looks and performance.

Main purpose is to get my game on wether falling from the skies in PUBG, collecting my booty in Sea of Thieves, or floating in space with my Oculus Rift. Everything I've thrown at this build so far has been perfect.

My friends gave me some flack for only 16 GBs of RAM and an i5 8600K, I've done my research. There's plenty of horsepower by my book. I'm a firm believer that more than this is overkill. Anyways you better believe I'm OCing that CPU to it's limit, getting great temps too.

Let me know what you think, only thing that bugs me are the CPU cooler hoses. I wish they could loop back to the left, however the Aorus Radiator/Fan blocks this by literally 1mm... believe me I tried.

Looks great and keeps my CPU well below normal temps

Memory

LEDs are sick... RAM is RAM

Case

Very Customizable. A lot of room. Looks great.

Monitor

It's bigger than it looks

Had a crappy Logitech Orion Spark before this... so glad I returned it. Reds make me happy.

Feels great in your hand

Amazing Sound

Custom

At first I was disappointed. Then I received a firmware update... Amazing sound improvement.

More pictures please, preferably taken from the glass panel side of the case and a bit further away than those that you already have so that we can see it as a whole. It looks great (from what I can see) but the photos don't do justice to it! +1 anyway!

4 months later, but I delivered. Figured this was a good project to test out my new camera. Let me know what you think.

Honestly speaking I don't remember which photos your build had when I first saw it 4 months ago but these are great! Have fun with it!!

What can you say about your speakers? Are they good for the price?

Speakers sound amazing, keep in mind that I'm not a hardcore audio enthusiast. Can't beat a pair of Bose speakers for <100 IMO.
