Sweet, first time building one, thanxs to this site and other videos. She done. Thought i post because my memory was not in the list or listed as compatible with my MB at other sources(even Corsair and Asus didn't know), but it work, the 4x4gb was compatible, so why not the 4x8gb. And as for the memory, mine came with the ROG logo.

In all, it's done, not sure i get the headphones, love my turtle beach headset already, and i don't really need louder, but this is my Asus ROG build. And as for music i like the headset on, but i see myself getting the Logitech - Z533 60W 2.1ch Speakers, last thing on the shopping list i guess.

I left the Logitech - G403 Prodigy Wired Optical Mouse in the part list, because it was a great back up till i got the Spatha. Bought it because i seen a pro gamer using it (ProdigyAcesTv), and it works nice, look sweet and simple (I will continue to use it with some games).

I think i get the new ROG first AIO liquid cooler, when it comes out. Hope it's compatible. https://rog.asus.com/articles/cooling/rog-ryujin-ryuo-aio-liquid-coolers-aura-sync-lighting-livedash-displays/

Part Reviews


Had mine OC 35% 4.6GHz @ 1.35v, I should have left it alone. But i get OC 30 % easy, 4.4GHz @ 1.25v. Might get it back up to 35% later, if i can.

CPU Cooler

No problem, like most i bet.


I only give it 4 stars. because i can't get the SupremeFX Hi-Fi to work, but that could just be me, will play with it more sometime here.


All i can say is fast, love the boot time.


Nice HDD, as for the speed, warranty and a lot of space, but this can get loud at times, like most HDD do.

Video Card

No problem, does what it says it would and man it looks kool.


Couldn't ask for better for my ROG build, but i wanted the darker glass look. The glass casing comes off easy, but even when i take it off my build still has a dark red look. But i love it.

Operating System

No problems, but like every new OS, you got to wait for everyone else's software to catch up.

Case Fan

Corsair and Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan, need i say more.

Love it, the only thing i didn't like was the sounds output on the monitor, too low. Had to use some extra speakers, but speakers would be the best route to take when gaming without a headset anyways.


Great, smaller than i thought it be, but that is a plus. Never knew what i was missing out on, got the kool look, keystroke sound, and size.


Felt a little heavy and big at first, but now, after using it a little more, it seem really nice in the hand, fits like a glove. loving it


Sweet mouse, feels good gaming with it. no problems yet. And for the price, it be the best first and last mouse, don't need another. Only got the ROG Spatha for the build.


A little pricey, but if it last as long as it should, then it's kool. Nice look and feel, also washable.


Works great, got it for the PC and PS4. Probably work better, if i didn't spill coffee on the receiver part, lol but after all the coffee, it still working great.

Did you have to sell your desk and chair to afford this thing?

DeadDrop submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

WTFisAmbroxx 2 points 20 months ago

Bro... Are u sure this is ok? I mean, a i7 with 6 cores, a 1080, 32gb of ram, but a 250gb ssd? Kinda a miss of priorities in there man.

DeadDrop submitter 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

yeah i just got it , so i can watch utube in 1080

PuppyCasey 1 point 20 months ago

You may want to invest in a chair and desk/ mouse pad, etc.

nice build, however!

Bosswoman3 1 point 20 months ago

Make sure you do some research on a excellent desk and chair. My opinion is I would get a cougar armor gaming chair.

DeadDrop submitter 1 Build 1 point 20 months ago

I plan to get more storage with Raid here in the future sometime. And as for the chair, I like it, I had others, lol.
