Description

EDIT: moved my tower to the other side and with a new wallpaper and a blue colour scheme it looks so nice, hence the first photo now being a picture of the new setup in all it's glory! I've turned the LEDs in the case off for now, whilst nice they can get really bright!

Edit no.2: I somehow found my way onto Techsource's Setup Wars! Check out episode 91, it's the first setup of the episode :).

My old build but updated- was too lazy to do an entirely new write-up so I copy and pasted my old build description, but have added new parts. This is my PC along with pictures of my entire setup.

I wanted to build a PC which was good for gaming, productivity and general browsing the web.

i7 6700K= Good choice for a myriad of different uses

Zotac GTX 1070 Amp! Extreme- didn't want to fork out an extra $200+ for a GTX 1080- the 1070 seems like one of the best bang for your buck, higher end cards around. Notice how I have bought a GPU support bracket from Amazon- Zotac unfortunately do not offer support brackets with their GPU's, and this helps to combat the GPU sag extremely effectively. EDIT: I decided that one card wasn't enough, and that I simply had to have another one- enter the 2nd Zotac 1070. I ended up dismantling the GPU support bracket and using it to prop both cards up to prevent both from sagging. Both are staying at very respectable temperatures, not going above 80C at load. SLI works a treat, going from 55fps in the Witcher 3 to over 85 with hairworks on on max. I bought the Nvidia High Bandwidth SLI bridge to ensure maximum performance.

ML 120 Pro- Liked the look of them, originally didn't want any of the RBG fancy colour changing options, I knew what colours I wanted to stick with. Initially I was concerned with the bold yellow strips on top of the GPU- however once I completed the build I found that it did not look out of place- in fact it seemed to compliment its otherwise dull surroundings. I bought 2 8-pin white PCI-E extensions and a 24-pin extension to go with the white of the LED's. Have now bought cable combs to go with the extensions for a much cleaner look. Also included the Phanteks LED strip. Also bought a custom made backplate for the Zotac.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Tempered Glass Black- I cannot come up with enough good words to describe this. It looks stunning; the tempered glass, along with the low profile thumb screws, makes this thing look amazing in daylight or in complete darkness. The complete metal exterior and interior, although heavy, really adds the feel of quality and longevity. A few things which I did note which was excellent thinking by Phanteks: 1: the top removal CPU Cooler slider. This makes mounting and installing CPU coolers SO easy- just a few screws to undo and it slides out without a hitch. 2: Plenty of room in the back to work with to organise cables and route wires. There is also a lot of space underneath the PSU shroud to stuff your cables away from sight. 3. The included dust filters are extremely handy- just a firm tug and they come right off for easy cleaning/maintenance work on fans. 4. The included Phanteks toolbox! This is a nice touch by Phanteks, giving you everything you need plus spares to build any build out there.

I decided to go for the MG279Q as my monitor as I did not feel like shelling out the extra $200+ bucks for G-sync, or go for a similar priced monitor with G-sync but be a TN Panel. The 144hz monitor coupled with 2K resolution along with a lovely IPS screen makes doing anything on this PC a pleasure. I have not noticed any of the mythical "IPS Backlight Bleed" but perhaps this is because I do not know what to look for! EDIT: I also got 16GB more ram to end up with a total of 32GB of 3000MHz of RAM.

Overall I am extremely happy with this build and I hope you enjoy. :)

Part Reviews

CPU

As good as it gets for Skylake!

CPU Cooler

Very quiet under idle, very acceptable pump noise under load. Looks amazing too with being able to customise the Corsair Logo colour.

Motherboard

Incredible motherboard! Very, very nice BIOS/UEFI which makes controlling everything very easy. Logo is RGB.

Memory

Hasn't failed me yet, nice fast RAM.

Storage

Lightning fast boot times, loads Windows in about 10 seconds and logs on instantly!

Video Card

Beastly card, huge heatsink keeps temperatures below 80 degrees even with both in SLI.

Case

Beautiful, beautiful case. Lovely to build in, 10/10 would recommend to anyone, new builder or experienced.

Power Supply

Even with both my cards in SLI the fan doesn't seem to spin, and if it does it's inaudible! Very good PSU.

Operating System

Windows is Windows! Actually really pleasantly surprised, FAR better than 8!

Case Fan

Lovely colours, colour between all the colours is the same, very quiet operation and good mover of air!

Monitor

Good monitor at a fantastic price for what it offers!

Keyboard

Has completely changed my typing experience, a mechanical keyboard is truly unlike anything else.

Mouse

The RGB capability of this mouse is stunning, and the side buttons feel easier to use than the Logitech G600 variant!

Headphones

Proper headphones, finally moved away from beats!

Other

Syncs with the front LED colour of the case.

This build looks great, between the cleanliness, the blue and white, the tempered glass... beautiful!

It's kind of funny how close the two 1070s are to each other, I would have thought that the top GPU would be running way too hot but apparently not. Guess that's thanks to Zotac's huge cooler and NVIDIA Pascal's frostiness :)

Again, gorgeous build, everything's just perfect. Easy +1 from me :D

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I thought the same, and it does run about 5-10 degrees hotter than the bottom one- but temps on the top one only ever reach 75 degrees at full load during gaming sessions of 3 hours and over... these heatsinks are no joke! Thank you for the complements :)

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

And the White and Blue colours means that the PC runs cooler... amirite ;)

ThugginMcMuffin 3 Builds 4 points 9 months ago

love the build, just hate those graphics cards. I don't know why, but those graphics cards just look so ugly to me. maybe it's because they are unnecessarily huge?

NoobyGamer 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

They stay super cool though!

TheMightestOfUsAll 2 points 9 months ago

I personally feel it makes this build a bit unique . The build looks bulky on the Inside. +1

ShriyansM 1 point 9 months ago

Just as NoobyGamer said they are more efficient when it comes to cooling

BeerzGod 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I agree. 1070's with great cooling a plus... but Zotac's are ugly as sin.

Those two bulky cards look really good together. Kudos for a superb build, sir! Btw, PCPP, where is that favorite button?!?

Tacanacy 2 points 8 months ago

That backplate on the Zotac, where did you buy it??

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Bought it off an European website- annoying thing is that it's actually about a centimetre short- if you look closely on the left side of the GPU you'll see it. I can try find the website if you want but bear in mind it'll probably be a bit small.

Tacanacy 2 points 8 months ago

Nope, can't see it. All I see is "ZOTAC" in the upper left corner, "AMP! EXTREME EDITION" in upper right, "GTX 1070" in bottom right, and no text or anything else than white background color in the bottom left. There's something that looks like a blue smudge in the top towards the right, can't tell if it's a logo. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me the website!

Nauticale 3 points 7 months ago

I believe this might be the website the backplate was purchased from. Notice the similar design and that the company is based out of Europe. Cheers!

Tacanacy 1 point 6 months ago

tadashi 1 point 9 months ago

Really nice build. The extra thick GPUs make the Case seem more full.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I do like this actually, some cases can seem very empty with only 1 or two slim cards :)thanks!

Daisyahoy 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

+1 as I gaze over at my not as impressive machine.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

It's ok, we've all been there before XD all I have to do is look at a dual Titan X Pascal build to bring me back down to earth XD thank you :)

Daisyahoy 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

I have a feeling that your earth is vastly different than my earth lol. However I did just upgrade my 760 (since june 2013) to a 1060. I feel like im in a whole new world lol.

PigWithAMustache 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

How are those cards getting any air? The fans are totally blocked. Nonetheless its a very sexy build my dude. How does the SLI compare to single GTX 1080 performance?

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I thought the same thing but they do get enough with the front fans doing some work- I've set custom curves on my fans to ensure that they do get enough air, especially when playing games like the Witcher 3. In terms of FPS, it can increase by a good 60-70% on some games. For example, the Witcher 3 went from around 55 fps to over 80 consistently. However, for World of Warcraft, which is rather poorly optimised for multi-GPU situations it shows no difference. There are quite a few youtube videos which explain in far greater detail than I can XD. Thank you and I hope I could help.

Bloo3336 7 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Love the build but be careful with those coolers. The temperatures aren't as great because the airflow they're getting is immensely restricted. Overall I love the build and your whole setup is godly. I can't wait until I have the extra cash to get my own GTX 1070. I'll probably get a founders edition card or the EVGA FTW edition of it because I'm planning full system liquid cooling.

+1!

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I've set up custom curve for each fan in the case, including the ones on the GPU to ensure that GPU temperatures stay under 75 degrees at load. All it takes is some tinkering :)

Bloo3336 7 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah but I still believe two dual slot cards would have been much more efficient.

Vitality 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Those cards are ginormous. Very well done setup. deserves a feature!

Caminon 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Those video cards really need to go on a diet....

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Imagine picking them up and dealing with them when I realised I misplaced a fan header RIGHT behind both of them XD

TheBlackPython 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

this blew me away when I saw the first picture! maybe because I have never seen tri-slot cards in SLI, or maybe just because it is awesome! +1

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thank you :) The GPU's never hit above 75 degrees which i'm very happy with.

jonaskvale77 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Wow this is gorgeous! I love the color scheme... and something about those beefy heatsinks on the GPUs is so sexy. Beautiful!

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

The heatsinks certainly do their job! Thank you :)

MiraMinx 1 point 9 months ago

Where did you stick the blue and where the white LED fans, and can we get some shots of them with both the lights in your room on and off? (Sorry I only ask because I was looking at them myself just the other day for a build I'm working on.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I stuck the white ones on top and back for exhaust and the blue ones at the top. Check now for pictures :) They look unimpressive because the LED strip is quite bright- if you aren't planning on using an LED strip then I would recommend getting these- look at the white ones on the top and back for reference of how bada$$ they look :)

MiraMinx 1 point 9 months ago

I see what you mean, the LED strip is quite over powering for the few LEDs they have. If only I could get the fans from the ML series with the LEDs of TTs Riing series then the world would be perfect.

ESPI 1 point 9 months ago

I am just going to say this: W O W!!!

Rafal400 1 point 9 months ago

Are you sure that the top GPU is not overheating? The bottom card seems to be starving it of air because of the huge cooler on the AMP! Edition.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I pretty much have a constant eye on temps, and I haven't seen the GPU run above 75C... This is playing high intensity games, such as Witcher 3, Battlefield 1 (Ultimate Edition) and (sort of) World of Warcraft.

The GPU coolers, although arguably lacking air, are huge so that probsbly helps a lot- I do have a manual fan curve I set to for gaming to ensure temps are as low as possible for a smooth experience :).

Rafal400 1 point 9 months ago

Well as long as the temps are not reaching 80c, then I guess the GPU placement it fine. Yeah, those coolers are huge and I'm sure that most of the cooling anyways comes from the heat sink itself.

llamasbetrippin01 1 point 8 months ago

How is the RAM? I'm in a debate of which ram set I should go with and I for some reason stress over the little things like ram, psu etc. People keep telling me "its jus ram"

But anyway amazing build +1 from me!

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

RAM is good- honestly, 16GB is already overkill for gaming, let alone 32. Only go above 16 if you are going to do any video editing- very useful. Go for the highest frequency ram that your motherboard supports (within reason, don't go for 3733 ram because that's pricey!) I went for 3000MHz because it's a little above average I guess. The Corsair RAM is serving me well, would definitely recommend. Also check what RAM your motherboard is compatible with, be it DDR4 or DDR3. Hope this helps :)

llamasbetrippin01 1 point 8 months ago

Think you, this definitely helps, I'm going with the RAM set you have because its in the right range between to expensive and not cheap but doesn't perform too well, I'm getting the Asus MAXIMUS VIII HERO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Yeah that motherboard is basically mine, good choices :)

llamasbetrippin01 1 point 8 months ago

How is the LED effect on the mobo? it's a pretty pricey motherboard but I don't want to get a GODLIKE or VIII Formula.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

The only LED on this motherboard is the heatsink on the motherboard, and since I have 2 ginormous GPU's in the way you can't even see it lol. Any substantial sized GPU will cover it. This is a fantastic motherboard- incredible BIOS and app in windows- would recommend this mobo over the formula or godlike, either save the extra money or get a bigger ssd etc.

bzubaca 1 point 8 months ago

Did you use a fan controller or some spitters for theese fans. Im planning to get 6 ML fans, so I want to know what your system is. Great build BTW!

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Nah I had all the fan headers on my motherboard needed for the fans, considering 2 of them we re able to be connected to the CPU fan headers for the CPU cooler. :) Thank you :)

Bloodham 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

How is the air flow in the case? I'm planning on doing the same setup as you are except with 2X140mm Corsair ML140 at the front to bring in air as intake, the rad at the top with the fans and a 140mm at the back for exhaust.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

The airflow is good, currently sitting at positive air pressure as I have the front intake fans taking air in ad a higher RPM than the exhaust fans. With your current setup you have negative air pressure which is going to result in dust build-up, as you have more exhaust fans than intake. What I would do is get a removable dust filter and convert your back fan into an intake fan for more air into the case, as well as positive airflow. Hope this helps :)

Bloodham 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I was thinking of having the 2X140mm Corsair Pro's in the front at a higher RPM and the exhaust at the back being pretty low and just having the 2X120mm that are on the RAD be a bit higher so it pushes more air through the top. I think that should work but I might try your idea and have the back fan become a intake fan as well but if it's just set at a lower RPM I think it should also work fine.

The two fans in the front will be doing most of the work pulling air in and should HOPEFULLY create positive pressure in the case...maybe.

Sinan.pasic2 1 point 8 months ago

Since you had to remove the hard drive cages to fit the 1070s, where did you put the hard drives? Your build looks amazing so I'd like to know where they went.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

No hard drive cases in this case- you get individual removable drive caddies which can span the whole height of the right side of the case. However there are 2 3.25/2.5 inch drive bays underneath the shroud, as well as 3 toolless SSD mounts on the back, which is where I have my HDD and SSD mounted respectively. :)

Sinan.pasic2 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks dude, would it be possible to mount the hard drive cages behind the shroud and have the SSD be shown in front of the shroud?

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Yep, this is possible too, the ssd can me mounted for show in front of the shroud. Yes, my hard drive is currently in the cage inside the shroud.

Sinan.pasic2 1 point 8 months ago

Alright, thanks. What do you think of this PC? It's mostly for gaming and editing but also some 3D sculpting and stuff. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/wGH9tJ

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Not bad, although I would change a few things:

RAM speeds. I would recommend getting Corsair LPX DDR4 3000 or 3200MHz ram instead, the performance boost should do you good and the price difference isn't that big anymore.

Also- you might want to consider getting a different GPU, EVGA have been having a lot of thermal issues. I HIGHLY recommend the ASUS Strix 1070 instead, a fantastic card.

Other than that, everything looks good. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

DeNo49 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Your build looks nice, but the cable management is flawless man sheeesh. Good work. I just ordered the Evolv and can't wait to update my build. I ordered the Hue+ lighting system and have plans to use both the Phanteks and Hue+. Thinking about getting a Coolermaster AirMaker 8 as well.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 7 months ago

I mean if you have a phanteks case and get a phanteks LED strip you can control it from the case with a button up front. May not give you as many colours, but it gives enough for me ( I think 7 colours).

Are keeping the cards level with those clear inserts ? Or are you using something else to brace the graphics cards from sagging ?

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Just the clear inserts, doing the job well enough.

shreduhsoreus 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

What all games do you play and do you notice any bad stuttering? I'm torn between returning my 1070 while I can still get a full refund and getting a 1080, or grabbing a 2nd 1070 and HB bridge. Consistent scaling isn't a concern because it scales well in games I care about... it's the stuttering that I'm afraid of.

And you said my build was clean? No sir. My build looks like trash in comparison to this haha. I love it! With the size of those video cards, I don't know why they didn't just make the bracket 3 slots wide as well for extra support.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I play the Witcher 3, BF1, World of Tanks, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, CIV 6, AC3 (old game I know) and I don't notice any stuttering no.

If I were you I would return the 1070 and get a 1080. This just means that you'll have a more powerful GPU now, and you can upgrade to SLI in the future. I regret not getting a 1080.

shreduhsoreus 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

The main thing holding me back is I know a 1080 won't run 5864x1080 @ 75Hz in Far Cry Primal(along with some other games) and I definitely can't afford 2 of those haha. Stuttering seems to be less common with the 10 series and I'm betting the high bandwidth bridge is helping.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I haven't noticed any stuttering with my two 1070's- maybe its the advancements in the 10 series, maybe the HB SLI bridge, or both. I've been getting 130fps in BF1 in 2560x1440p and 90fps in the Witcher 3 (both AA maxed out/ultra settings) with my rig.

This is one of the nicest and clean looking builds I've seen in a while. Genuinely looks like something out of a sci-fi movie with the white leds and gpu setup.

Did you make/buy a cover for the top of the GPU? What is the picture of that white piece of plastic with the name of the GPU on it?

Gaming_Universe 1 point 1 month ago

Would you recommend that gpu? Im probably going to get one.

Duncan034 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Get a smaller one. Temps are good but if you plan on going SLI in the future it'll be really difficult.

Thank you! I like it how I can change the colour of my components to whatever I want, but blue is the way to go for me, by far my favourite colour :).

Stick with your white build! Good thing about white is that should you ever want to add RGB light strips white reflects very well, so you can get a build of any colour with white :).
