Everything started with the decision to upgrade my ageing GTX 770 AMP! since it was struggling to play Doom and RoTR maxed out. Slowly I started adding components and ended up upgrading everything but my optical drive :)
A lot of the components are just overkill for a gaming build but got them anyway as I had decided to pull out all the stops (as much as I can) in this build.
UPDATE: Added a white LED AF140 at the back to replace the stock case fan. Also added a bottom mounted AF120 that is connected to the fan header on the ROG Strix GTX 1070. Will update soon with difference in cooling and sound.
Probably overkill for a gaming build. But its fast and efficient. Expensive little thing.The CPU stays pretty cool during gaming.
Got this at a decent price locally in India. Pretty quiet. Installation was tricky as the tubes are quite stiff. Also, the installation manual is very basic.
Looks great and very functional. I did run out of USB 2.0 headers though. Also, the GPU covers the SATA ports making removing and adding SATA drives difficult.
Nothing much to add here. G.Skill makes great RAM and they look great.
Had a lot of trouble sourcing this. The card was out of stock everywhere. Finally got lucky with some stock on NewEgg and ordered it right away. The card sold out the next day. The card is quite big but smaller than the Zotac AMP Extreme version. The RGB LEDs look great and performance is absolutely fantastic. I havent even used the OC mode yet. Havent seen the card hit 60 degrees yet even under heavy gaming.
Great looking case with very good cable management options.The side panels are very easy to take off and put back on but feel a little flimsy and fragile. My previous case, CM Storm Trooper, felt more rugged. The large side panel looks awesome and is the reason I got this case.The tool-less SSD trays are a great option.
Was looking at the Seasonic X series 850 but got this as this got great reviews everywhere and was slightly less expensive than the Seasonic. Also, I thought this would look better in my case. The packaging was great with lots of well braided cables. It also came with a bunch of velcro ties. No issues so far.
Had some trouble setting up the LEDs as the installation instructions are a bit basic, but once they are up, they really light the up the case. Even the basic 4 strips that come with the package are enough to cover a full tower case. You need to install the CAM software to configure the LED controller. The software can be a little buggy. Also, the LEDs will default to white lights when powered on, until the CAM software starts up. This is a little disappointing.
Awesome keyboard. Get this for $70 on Amazon Prime.The backlight LEDs are really bright and rich in colour. The software works greats and offers some interesting effects on the keyboard. The keys are blue-switch mechanical and have a very nice feel when typing. The sound is also pleasant.
Really good mouse for the price. The grip is very natural and the mouse feels perfectly weighted in the hand. The RGB colours look great.
