I had the chance to sell of my 4790k and most of my parts so i wanted to give this x99 a try .
I kept my case ,monitor,hard drives,and wires . everything else here i replaced .
I decided to keep going with gigabyte boards because i used them for over 10 years and never had a problem, and since it was red and white and i had red and white custom wire set i decided to make a corsair themed pc.
Everything went well and i over clocked this 6 core cpu up to 4.3 with no troubles runing a 1.25 core voltage.
i went with a 1080 evga sc and ended up swamping it out for a 1080 ftw.
the main reason i wanted to upgrade from z97 to x99 was the the nvme sata drive ,the extra sata ports, and quad channel ddr4 memory. And it was worth it the speed is so fast everything just loads instantly.
I run all my games of the ssd's and the gtx 1080 plays anything with out any troubles at 1440p.
i painted the drive bays to match the red and white color theme and i am waiting on some cable combs to straighten out my cables next week
The Price seems very high but i have about 2000 in drives in this system . I had them from the last system so why not put them all in here .
check out the pics it looks way better in person hope you enjoy :)
overclocks to 4.3 with no troubles and runs 73 max under full stress test stock speed and voltages dont break 50c
been useing this for 2 years and it works perfect still much better then a big air cooler
seems good so far the bios is hard to figure out the manual is not that great for over clock help and customer support is slow .might be my last gigabyte board. but once fine tuned in everything working perfect .the leds are a little bright
super fast reliable memory the light kit looks great on these . kinda over priced
best boot drive i ever used
great drive for games
good price for a 6tb and works good
i love evga cards and there customer service is the best you can ask for. card runs perfect and plays everything thrown at it no coil whin dont overheat
i love this case but after 2 years its getting a little outdated ., but great case and lots of room and airflow
modular is the only way to go ,so easy to work with
i have bad eyes so i had to go with a bigger moniter. i love ips moniters but i cant find one thats 32 inches and 1440p . so i gave this moniter a try so far so good its huge .good for windows but great for gameing at 1440p games look awesome on this
