First of all Hello!
I'd like to invite you to see and discuss my build for future reference! Please feel free to comment! The purpose of this build is for Gaming, Streaming/recording and light/medium (i hope, for YouTube content). I will also do edit some Gopro footage on it!
Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core I think the choice speaks for itself, I definitely waned to jump on to the X99 platform and the 5820k seemed to be the perfect match for my budget and purpose.
ASUS X99-S ATX LGA2011-3 This board seemed to support everything I wanted and add a slick look to it! The Ice white matches the case perfectly! ASUS's board switches, LEDs, sensors, and smart overclock gave me good starting points to tweak around making the process quite easier! the are USB 3.0 everywhere on this Board and more SATAs than we can count! Overkilled a bit since I only plan on going as far as 2-way SLI but... reasons!
CORSAIR H100i amazing temperatures fit and low noise. When I'm on YouTube, or playing something like LoL these are the only fans really spinning. keeps my CPU cool even with increased voltages, a bit of a pain to configure but worth the trouble!
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Are they making a competition on who has the longest name? Anyway this Gaphics card absolutely brutalizes anything I threw at it on 1080p, the G-sync funcionality is a must and the crown of the jewel. The games look amazing on the Screen after tweaking around a little bit with the settings! The low fan consumption allows higher OC since there is more power to deliver! when on Idle or light load fans are stopped which makes it very quit too!
Kingston 16GB DDR4-2400 Got these at a amazing deal price and they are totally worth it, when I was looking for the Board to buy on the ASUS X99 I saw that at times there was a few issues with the XMP profiles on some sticks. Not on these ones! Profile was loaded and running smooth!
CORSAIR HX850i ATX Corsair Link + Silent + Platinum energy Seal
Overall Building a PC after 6-8 years is absolutely amazing. This was fairly easy to put together! The corsair Air 540 allows you a clean look fairly easily! In the future I might add another 980 and another 4 ram sticks (if needed)! As for results, I'll leave a benchmark result bellow! http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/6708505 If you read this far, thank you!
