I wanted to do one final rebuild before my GF delivers our son in a few weeks, and now its finally complete. (well is it ever complete? ) :P
The Story: So i went out to get the 1800x CPU and the Asus Chrosshair VI X370 motherboard, but i could not get it to post - after 15 hours of troubleshooting still no luck. The next day is was going to a LAN party, and there was no more AMD in stock, so i got an intel setup instead. I will not rule out a switch to AMD again at some point, but for now i am very pleased with this setup i have now.
I mainly use it for gaming, benchmarking, PLEX server ect.
The listed prices are my currency converted to USD and what it would cost new - some things i did by second hand though.
CASE: Thermaltake Suppressor F51
I went with this case because i wanted a silent tower with no window. My PC is in our bedroom and is sometime on at night, so it had to be dead silent and no light emitting from it. The case is amazing, but very heavy with a full custom water loop. Its modular design makes for an easy build with lots of room.
MOBO: Asus MAXIMUS IX Code Z270
I mainly picked this board because of its good looks, connectivity, features and cooling abilities.
CPU: Intel i7-7700K 4.2Ghz Quad-Core (Overclocked to 5.0Ghz)
No other option for me, as i needed a great CPU for gaming along with its hyperthreading capabilities to serve as a 4K Plex server. CPU is getting de-lidded next week and i hope to get 5.1Ghz stable at much lower temps . CPU block is an EK-Supremacy EVO - Full Nickel Chrome block.
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum Chrome 32GB DDR4-3200Mhz (overclocked to 3466Mhz)
The chrome fits the theme perfectly, and i always wanted the Dominator RAM in a build, so i got the best i could get. Why get chrome parts when there are no window in the case? I dunno.. Im just crazy, and just knowing that i can take off the side and have a peak at this beauty is worth it :D
GPU: 2 X EVGA Geforce GTX 1080 8GB FTW Hybrid in SLi.
Bought these 2 used and slapped on some EK-FC1080 GTX FTW blocks and of course Nickel Chrome backplates. They are amazing and boost to about 2088mhz with a small 100mhz OC on the core + 550mhz extra on the memory and powerlimit set to 130%.
STORAGE: Samsung 960 Evo 1TB M.2 + Samsung 850 Evo 1TB
The M.2. is the boot disk and i also put my favorite games on it - and my god is it fast! The boot up time is less than 10 sec. The 850 evo is for all other games.
PSU: Corsair RM1000i 1000W 80+ Gold Cerified modular PSU.
This is a survivor from my previous PC. Powerful and dead silent. Use cablemod chrome Modmesh cables as it fits the theme.
Monitor: Asus PG279Q 165hz G-sync
Best gaming monitor for my taste atm. I Prefer 1440p to 4K atm as i play quite a bit FPS games. Beautiful colors and great viewing angle on the 27" IPS panel.
Complete custom loops with Alphacool Rads - A 420mm for the top and a 280mm Monsta in the front fitted with Corsair ML140 Pro Fans. They are incredibly quiet and moves a lot of air. I use a Corsair Commander Mini to control the fans. EK res/pump 5.25 slot combo in the front of the case with a blue LED - looks sweet :). EK and bitspower fittings, tube ect.
Logitech keyboard (just a very silent one as a gaming keyboard is too noisy :P) Logitech G602 wireless gaming mouse - amazing mouse that fits very well in my hand. Steelseries Siberia 840 7.1 headset - great wireless headset which also lets my connect my phone via bluetooth.
Anyways, i hope you enjoy the pictures. Feel free to ask any questions about it :)
