This build really started when I jumped on a sale for my Titan X on Prime day (I know, what a let down that was). It was a Warehouse deal and I got it for the price of a 980ti so I really couldn't say no... I have had my old gaming rig for about 3 years, and I built in on a budget. I was finding myself turning graphics settings down quite a bit for the new AAA titles coming out. I decided to bite the bullet and build the Machine I had been pricing and drooling over for about a year now (given somethings have changed as new hardware came out).
CPU- I really have no complaints about this processor, unfortunately I haven't really had time to push it to its limits since I built it so I really can't say more than it hasn't gone over 30% usage with normal gaming and stream viewing.
Kraken- This is a great product, but unfortunately I received a faulty unit. The usb on it would not connect with my system resulting in me not being able to control the Fan speeds at all, or change the color. I have a new one coming, should be here today (7/27) and hopefully this one will work. My only complain is that the stock fans are loud, I will hopefully be putting some Corsair or Noctua fans on it to quiet it down a bit.
MSI X99 Gaming-7- I have 1 complaint about this motherboard. There are simply not enough case fan connectors on the motherboard. Not a huge deal, but a minor inconvenience.
G.Skill Ripjaws 4- Ram is ram, looks cool, good speed for now not too much to say here.
M500- These came out of my old system, setup in a RAID 0.They are fast and I haven't ever had a problem with them. Would be nice to upgrade to a few mx200s though.
Titan x- LOVE this card. It is fast and absolutely powers through games. I play at 1440p so it was very nice to be turn everything back up to ultra and still get 60+ FPS. I am disappointed with how the paint on the lettering came out, I will have to redo it at some point.
NZXT H440- This is by far my favorite case I have ever built in. The cable management and overall look is amazing. I will have pictures of the build uploaded and it is by far the most clean build I have ever put together (I build about 5 a year for friends/referrals).
Edit: Sorry for some potato pics, I will try to get some better shots with my DSLR at some point.
