Description

This is my most recent gaming rig. This is my first post but not my first build. With this pc, I wanted to build something powerful while still being quiet and must I say, even under load this thing is silent. Also, I wanted to build something sleek and elegant without being too flashy and I think this build perfectly reflects that. I tried to stick to black and white only but the green lighting on the Founders Edition cooler and the blue logo on the SSD are the only components that don't fit with the color scheme. All in all, I feel that its a gorgeous and very capable system. It runs all my games with outstanding frame rates at 1080p. Now I know what you're thinking. Yes it may be a little overkill for 1080p but I wanted to be able to take full advantage of my 144Hz refresh rate monitor and man is gameplay smooth. The most demanding game I play is Battlefield 4 and this smashes it with an average frame rate of 175 fps! I could not be any happier. I was also fortunate to get my gpu when I did. I purchased it directly from Nvidia 6 minutes after the 1070 was released! That may not matter to you but it does to me. Plus, I feel like i may have lucked out and got a really great card because just on the factory gpu boost 3.0, I see clock speeds of 1886mHz. I have to say thats pretty impressive. Also the reason why I went with such a big psu is because I eventually plan on getting another GTX 1070 Founders Edition and run it in SLI with the Nvidia HB bridge to complete this build. Well I figured I'd share this build with you guys! Happy gaming!

Update: I was messing around with overclocks for the gpu and I was able to get a clock of 2114MHz stable on stock voltages and 9464MHz on the memory all running at 62 degrees celsius at full load. I also included a before and after result image of the Unigine Heaven benchmark for comparison between with and without overclocks.

Overall nice build, allthough having SLI 1070's might be over over kill, if you do go that road consider going up to a 1440p monitor with a high refresh rate to keep you happy. Otherwise you are gonna "bottleneck" those gpu's with your monitor. Screen tearing is no joke xD

Yeah of course! When I get a 1440p monitor with a high refresh rate and low response time and another 1070 was going to be my next upgrade but not for a long time. Thanks!

Cable combs would look nice for the 24pin and 8pin for gpu

I was thinking that too at first but I've grown to like the way the cables lay

Can your 1070 hit 2000+ core clock in OC? That is the magic number for 1070s

I haven't tried overclocking my gpu yet but I'll let you know the results when I do

Once I start playing with gpu oc I'll update and fill you in. So far I've only played around with my cpu oc

Hey I know its probably kinda late but I was messing around with overclocks yesterday and I was able to get a stable 2114MHz on stock voltage

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my build. Wanted to stop by and say this looks gorgeous. Especially in when it's illuminated in the darkness!
