Now, don't get me wrong. This build is great. But there ARE a couple flaws. For example, your 2 4TB hard drives. They're 5400RPM, which really is a bottleneck. Since you already have them, there isn't a point in changing them out, but for your next build, aim for 7200RPM. And as far as your graphics card goes, since the build is $3000, I would have gone with gold instead of platinum PSU (platinum or titanium is really for SLI/Xeon/Core i9 and now Threadripper combos.) And dropped the RAM down to 16GB (There are very few workloads that can utilize 32GB, unless you're doing something that most people don't anyway, for example, gaming, streaming, and rendering at the same time. Then I would have gotten a GTX 1070 Ti (There's no point in the 1080, the 1070 Ti killed it) or a GTX 1080 Ti, if you could fit it in (Which I doubt you couldn't, it's a $3000 build) and probably go for a STRIX motherboard. Unless you honestly need the INSANE amount of USB 2 and 3/3.1 and the USB Type-C (Maybe it's Thunderbolt. I don't know, as I'm not very acquainted with either), the crosshair motherboards aren't worth the extra money. I would also drop the wired network card, as most motherboards come with 1/10/100 Gigabit Ethernet anyway. (And no, the built-in Ethernet is not slower. It's the same. There is absolutely no point in a wired network card.) Again, this build is good. But I saw a couple of flaws, and I thought I would point them out to you. No hate, I just thought you should know.

Well, I guess not, because NOTHING uses 88 threads xD

Actually, it's 44 cores, 88 threads...Such overkill, many wow.

Why would you go with an off-brand, non 80+ certified power supply? First off, if the power supply dies, chances are so will the rest of your PC. Not to mention you're wasting a lot of wattage, not giving you much "peace of mind", as you stated you had in your description.

He uses it for his PS4 controller, as the motherboard obviously doesn't have onboard bluetooth.
