+ Total (United States):
Theme is black with RGB, thus the need to plasti dip the red parts on the 1080 Ti.
Built this to play VR and waiting for a proper 4K monitor to release (hopefully soon). Also because my old rig, a 770 one, was sort of acting up and the motherboard had already been sent for rma once.
The prices will look sort of weird because I bought and built this system in Singapore and then just used Google to convert the prices.

Update 19 May 2017: Decided to just go for the Asus ROG Swift PG279Q monitor. Although I had initially planned to wait for a 4K 144hz HDR G-Sync monitor, it seems that a single 1080 Ti might not be enough to fully utilize it well. The price might be 2-3 times of the monitor I just bought as well. I could be wrong, but at least I have something to use for now :) Will upload pictures of the whole setup once I am done with packing my room heh
Coming from an i5-4570, I was deciding whether to get an i5 every 2-3 years or simply an i7 and hopefully use it for 4-5 years. Eventually went for this since I'll get the increased performance straight away (not sure if it helps, but I do dual screen and stream from time to time) and also partially because I wanted to try an i7 out.
Fits just nicely in the S340 Elite and the awesome looking pump that wouldn't make me pick otherwise. Mainly got it for aesthetic reasons, but I'm sure its a great cooler as well.
Liked the placement of most of the internal ports, allowed me to get a look that doesn't have the extra wires showing. Also like how I can monitor my cpu temps straight from the board. Plus, the led lights looks awesome as well.
Well.. RGB says it all lol
Bought it just to pair brands with the MSI board, because the red elements of the card is going against the theme I was going for. Thanks to the instructions from another user here on pcpartpicker, I thought I would manage by plasti dipping the red parts. It was easy to remove the shroud, and also without breaking any warranty stickers.
The deal breaker of getting case for me was whether it had a front hdmi port, and this was the only case that I liked that had one. Had to wait an extra week or too to start my build because it was sold out in my country at that time, but it was well worth it.
Modular, and was deciding whether to go for just the gold rated one, but this was in stock and decided to try titanium rated since I'll probably be using this system for a long time too. 750w seems just nice for me since I have no plans to SLI.
Works with hue+, and also keeping the NZXT brand compatibility together.
Once again, works with hue+, and also keeping the NZXT brand compatibility together.
After using my previous keyboard, a steelseries 7G, decided that I didn't require the numpad as much as it taking up space and also widening the length between my WASD controls and the mouse.
Coming from a G502 without spectrum, thought I I would just try wireless out as well. Preferred Logitech mice because of they give my hand the most comfort too.
Syncing the Kraken, Aer RGB fans and RGB LEDs together in a spectrum wave, why not?
