Description

This is my second build but first Intel build. I was really happy with the outcome of the build and the performance of it. Use it primarily for gaming, and just some light web browsing. At first I had gone with two 970's because I already had one from my previous build. I decided to sell those and get the 980 ti's. Sometimes I think about selling one of the 980's because SLI can be a PITA on occasion but I'll most likely keep them. The only parts I used from my old build were the SSD, HDD, and disc drive. Everything else was bought new. I used windows 7 with the upgrade to 10.

I do need to get one to replace the ugly ribbon bridge. Just haven't gotten around to it.

There is a lot of nice high end parts in this build. It looks like a nice gaming build. It has some nice colors too.

Thanks. I decided if I was going to do a second build I was going to do it right this time.

Sweet build. Was the 850 PSU cutting it close with the FTWs in sli? I ask because I just ordered 2 980ti FTWs. I currently have a 750 from EVGA, I know that won't do well for 2 of those. I have been going from 1000 to 850 wondering if I should save a few and the 850 or just get the 1000.

Na the 850 handles it well. I had someone gripe to me about cheaping out on the PSU but it performs and works fine.

Nice cable management, and great LED and component color coordination. Ad victoriam.

Thank you! I really took my time with the cable management because I really wanted a nice clean look. It's amazing how much of a difference it can make in a build.
