I wanted a computer that can do 4k gaming with no problem and beginner overclocking. I consider myself an enthusiast so that’s the type of build. My budget wasn't too limited but I wasn’t going to go too crazy with costs and this is what I put together. As soon as I can get the time and read how to use the ASUS BIOS I will overclock and post the benchmarks, right now its only running at stock.
CPU: I chose the i7-5930K for the X99 and Im hoping for a 4.3GHz overclock. I'm doing some 3D rendering so I wanted the 6 cores.
Mobo: The ASUS Rampage V Extreme has more features for overclocking than I know how to use and looks pretty good. Not really much else to say about it.
Memory: I would have gone with Corsair Dominator Platinum but the DDR4 price is way to high and due to time restraints to test the parts I had to get the Vengance LPX. The memory is not bad at all and I plan to expand it to 32Gb in the future.
My GPU choice is controversial but I chose the GTX Titan Black due to the 6gb memory and has roughly the same specs as a 780 Ti. I looked at possibly 2x R9 290x GPUs but they weren’t that impressive and only had 4gb of memory. I unfortunately got the GPUs right before the price drop of the R9 290X2 and would have gone with 2 of those instead.
Cooling: I wanted to get the most out of my overclocks so I got a custom loop to cool the CPU and the 2 Titans. Everything is from EK except the fittings and the tubing are from PrimoChill.
Case: I was looking at the H440 but it was getting cramped with the configuration and wasn’t watercooling friendly. I liked the Corsair 760T but they didn't make a red one so I dissasembled the case painted it red and switched the white LEDs to the red ones. Theres also that awesome MSI Dragon I had made just for something a little different. I was going with an MSI mobo originally and lets be real, the dragon looks pretty sweet no matter how you look at it.
Eventually I may get 2 more Titan Blacks or sell them and get a couple of R9 290X2s and upgrage the PSU. I can't take all the credit for my build my friend helped me a little to catch up with computer builds. The last time I built a computer was when the first i7's came out. The only thing I regret on this build was the lights, they suck and are dim.
