This PC was planned for about 4 months before I pulled the trigger. Would have been alot sooner if the GPU market didn't explode. I wasn't able to get EVERY part I desired i.e. 1080ti Strix OC :-(. Luckily I have a good friend who parted with his Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Edition for far less than market price.... and bonus it's water cooled!!
Overall I'm extremely happy with the looks and performance.
Main purpose is to get my game on wether falling from the skies in PUBG, collecting my booty in Sea of Thieves, or floating in space with my Oculus Rift. Everything I've thrown at this build so far has been perfect.
My friends gave me some flack for only 16 GBs of RAM and an i5 8600K, I've done my research. There's plenty of horsepower by my book. I'm a firm believer that more than this is overkill. Anyways you better believe I'm OCing that CPU to it's limit, getting great temps too.
Let me know what you think, only thing that bugs me are the CPU cooler hoses. I wish they could loop back to the left, however the Aorus Radiator/Fan blocks this by literally 1mm... believe me I tried.
Looks great and keeps my CPU well below normal temps
LEDs are sick... RAM is RAM
Does it's job
Powerful and looks great
Very Customizable. A lot of room. Looks great.
It's bigger than it looks
Had a crappy Logitech Orion Spark before this... so glad I returned it. Reds make me happy.
Feels great in your hand
Makes VR setup seamless
At first I was disappointed. Then I received a firmware update... Amazing sound improvement.
No loss in processing.
Well I'm online... so there's that
