To be completed..
I may replicate this build with some variations so I can get a nice-looking PC build so I can use it for making YouTube videos on! :)
Should have gotten a 750W or 700W power supply.
but I don't think it would have made much of a difference if you didn't buy this one because there are some cheaper 750W power supplies.
Cool build! looks close to mine except I use air cooling and corsair vengeance for RAM.
I disagree; the OP chose a very good power supply. I'm interested in what 700-750W power supplies that you recommend that is cheaper than $90 with Japanese capacitors, fully modular, and 80+ gold rated. OP doesn't need 700-750W if he's not going SLI and even SLI should work on the G2 power supply. After all, the GTX 1070 only uses 161W at max load.
I agree with the 2 commentators, a 700 or 750 watt power supply is overkill.
750 or 700w for a single gpu LUL
That's not what i'm saying, considering 700-750 are near the price range and some even less he could've gotten one and he wouldn't have to worry about upgrading it any time soon.
How do you feel about the fit of your FTW edition in your case? I watched a review from a guy with very white teeth where he said the wider card would not fit as well in a mid tower case.
IRCC he said this card would fit well with mid tower cases. But anyways, it fits perfectly and doesn't cover up the "bar" in my elite case. I know the ASUS Strix card goes beyond that.
Awesome build, man! Quick question, though. Are you using the 2x USB 2.0 headers for front-of-case connections and the x62? If so, is your HUE+ plugged into right side of the ROG_EXT header (or some similar combo)? I have a similar setup and I'm trying to figure out if I need a USB 2.0 hub.
I believe my mobo has 3 USB headers at the bottom and I just used them all. And I'm not using a hub.
Perfect! (I have the same MOBO). Thank you for the response :D
More LSD needed for full effect! Nice build tho m8
what is LSD? And thank you!
