Description

This was a fun build. My first one with SLI. I had initial concerns with the type of cooling (air vs. liquid) but the GPU temps idle at about 60c and level out at about 72c when playing GTA V (at 60fps, max settings). My choice of PSU was not the best, but power consumption was running at 70% according to GPUz while playing GTA.

Not a big fan of Windows 10 as a platform for playing games, but it works.

What do you mean?

it's as neat as could be, a solid build with purpose and very powerful. nothing over the top nor a build that someone just threw together.

i just feel it won't get much attention due to the featured builds almost always being watercooled and crazy wiring ;-; and it deserves more

Thank you for your comments. I've never done water cooling before. Water around electronics makes me nervous.

understandable, i have a closed loop that i was quite nervous putting in, but it was well worth it in the long run.

It looks nice however it would be nice to read more about the process you went through with this build. Give us details about why you chose and how you feel about the build now, maybe even update it with stats in some AAA games like GTA V or Fallout 4. Include some more information about temperatures. Very good on the pictures though, they came out very nice and I like how the build looks.

Why go with a 256gb M.2 and a 500gb SATA? Why not just do a 500gb M.2 and get a platter for more storage?

I agree on the larger M.2. But no more platters for me. My previous rig had two Wd Raptors (10k rpm) in RAID O, but I like the performance, reduced noise, and lower temps of the SSD.

You should've gone with a 4x4 RAM and run it in quad-channel. It works better that way.

Running 2x8GB allows him room for future upgrade to 32GB if wanted or needed.

Ok. Thanks. I'll look into that. Appreciate it.

Why don't you like Windows 10?

To me, W10 feels like a platform for tablets, not a high end gaming rig. But not much to do about that

Very nice, clean looking build. Is this specifically for gaming, or are there other main uses?

Just gaming.

Not a fan of the color scheme like I thought this was all white... But looking at the pictures it's white, gray, black, red. Either way nice build powerful machine

I like the extra space in a full tower. More room to work in and better air flow

Makes sense.

That's actually a good idea. Didn't think of that. Seems like a waste to have them blow side to side when there is not much in the drive cage. Thanks a lot for the tip.
