My last build was a Core 2 Quad (Thanks KOneJ) Q6600 built for gaming 10 years ago. In between I've mostly used a variety of laptops, I decided with the advent of VR I should build something new!
The build came together fairly easily. A little experimentation with where to put the AIO and the fans was fun.
The 970 was on sale when I purchased it. With Pascal/Polaris coming in the fall, I figured I'd just need something to play with while I waited.
I did a fairly lazy overclock, pushed it to 4.6ghz on the first try, tested it and found it stable. Didn't feel the need to keep trying to push the clock for now.
