It comes with the motherboard. The thing on the computer is just the antenna (the coil), the wifi chip is embedded on the motherboard.

It's the wifi antenna and nice timing with your post.

This is a great build, but I've definately seen more unique ones. Why is this ranked so high? I mean it's not like it is heavily modded or anything like that.

Thank you! I'm not really a gamer just a pc enthusiast and developer.

Sure I think you can build a $1250 version of this. I came up with the following. It's a little over $1250, but I'm sure you can sacrifice some parts to make it under that price. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

One question, do you only select new builds or do you sometimes select builds from like 4 days ago to be featured?

Thank you! This build actually took me 3 days, but that was only because I didn't order all the parts together. I actually built the entire pc on July 31 but refrained from posting it on pcpartpicker until I got the leds. I ended up never ordering the leds until I suddenly remembered last week. They arrived yesterday and I immediately got excited and installed them.

Yes I am thinking about that. I just need some high grit sandpaper cause the ones I have are like 80-grit.

Thank you so much!! After I followed what you said, I brought my boot time down to 28 seconds. Yes I made a UEFI installation of windows 8 and I'm not sure of my ambient temperature. Probably around 80 degrees fahrenheit (26.6 celsius).

Nice! I suggest learning Java first as it is easier to learn than C++. Maybe even try php, which was my second language but a lot people find it hard. My first language was vb but I wouldn't recommend learning it because it doesn't have much use and is a lot different than most other languages.

I know. When you click the on the eBay page it has dropdown menus for type, model, and waterproof. You just change them according to the item you want to buy.

Then definately get the Supernight RGBW ones. The NZXT Hue is only RGB. While the ones I have are RGBW. That means there are rgb leds and seperate cool white leds on the strip. When both are turned on it creates pastel colors. You can also do neon colors. Just turn off the white leds. The con is that you can't increase the amount of red, green, and blue and you can only choose from preset colors with the RGBW strips. If you go with mine be sure that you buy the Supernight RGBW ones as Supernight also sells the more common RGB strips which are just like NZXT Hue. With the ones I have you need some parts that come seperately like the controller and barrel to molex connector which totalled at $30.

Do you want neon colors or pastel colors?

Thank you! I am hoping that ASUS releases a bios update that fixes the slow boot. I checked out your build and it is awesome! I love the custom water cooling look.

Haha, I honestly don't know what I would do with an i7-5960X. Thanks you, I too like the leds at night. They are really bright and beautiful. I usually set them on fade and have the white leds on so that it makes pastel colors.

Thanks! Sorry I wasn't clear. I was trying to say that the X61 is great at cooling but the reason I said I wouldn't recommend it is because it has some bugs in the software and hardware. If you want the best cooling and don't mind some noise or bugs then I recommend the X61. If you want the best design and don't mind some noise or bugs then I still would recommend the X61. If you want the most stable and best overall closed loop cooler then I recommend the H100i even though it's slightly worse at cooling.

NOTE: Even though the person above me has similar parts, I did not copy them at all. I didn't even look at the other person's list until after I made my list.

Lol a $15,794.89 computer with hackintosh is the worst idea ever. It will be a pain in the *** and even if os x yosemite will install on it, it will have so many glitches. Many parts may also not be compatible like usb 3.0 ports, etc and you won't get the full performance out of your computer. Believe me, I have a $400 hackintosh and I actually researched and picked os x supported parts, yet it still has some glitches.

The Samsung 840 evo or pro is the best ssd out there and there is no reason to go for anything else unless it's cheaper, but you don't have to take my word for it. Go check the benchmarks yourself: http://ssdboss.com

Thank you! I think I'm going to go with Option 1 because as you said it makes more sense. For the monitor I'm either going to get the projector one with a monitor or two 1080p monitors and one 4k monitor.

The length was good. I'm sorry but I can't take the computer apart and measure it because that will take too much time and I will have to undo all the cable management. I'm pretty sure that it will reach most motherboards.
