I built this rig primarily for gaming. The main goal was to build a simple/clean machine with beefy processor, decent 1080P card with the intent to upgrade to 4K or 1440 very soon. I also use it for Plex media server. I didn't really have a budget but wasn't looking to go bankrupt either. it is overclocked to 4.7GHZ, I have not messed with GPU so clocks are stock. I'm not crazy about the K70 for the simple fact I type slower on it. I can type faster on nearly every other keyboard from laptops to my Ipad Logitech keyboard. I also wish I had gone with brown switches. My steel series kinzu mouse came free with motherboard and I'm not in a rush to upgrade. Can't beat free 99. used electric tape for cleaning up wires, not fancy but it works, posted some before and after pics of cables. A little bit of electric tape and some time made a big differences using those ugly PS cables.
PSU haters: got the CX750m for 52 bucks! can't beat that. It's super quiet if it last me three years I will be happy.
H100i was not seated properly leading to higher temps. After some brief research it seems some MBs are too thin for 100i mount, simple fix, add washers on back of mother board. CPU runs cooler when not over clocked obviously.
Upgrades coming soon:
GPU, I skimped on the GPU and Monitor on this build because I will upgrade to 4K as soon as they make a single card that can run all games at 60 FPS. That card does not exist today and I'm not interested in SLI. My GTX 960 runs all my games at or very close to 60 FPS so I figured why blow money on a 980ti if an upgrade to 4k is coming very soon.
4K curved monitor, what are your opinions on 4k curved monitors?
SSD, 500GB Samsung EVO that will be used strictly for games.
Corsair quiet edition fans, I plan on changing all fans to red ring quiet edition.
any recommendations on how to remotely turn my PC on from mobile device?
