Description

Well, no one could give me a better name, and I'm just about as creative as the color scheme of this build. Also, it's my first build.

I'm going to be attending college a little over a year from now, and I plan on getting a CS degree. I think this machine may last me well enough 'till then (with a few upgrades here and there, perhaps). The money was ascertained from the result of a large settlement, and $3,300 was mandated for a computer build, which is why some of the choices I'd made are not the most realistic or cost-effective.

Few pictures and stats for now, I plan on overclocking and benchmarking soon, no specific date planned as of yet. Sorry.

Everything works like I'd expected, but note this: The case and liquid cooler only work in one specific setup, and it's a painfully arduous one at that. The fans have to be mounted outside the radiator, and screws must be place through the case, fan, and radiator simultaneously.

I'm proud of what I've built, and it really is quite the machine. Not a bad first build, and I look forward to what I may accomplish in the future.

Thanks! Definitely a nail-biter on my part.

Wow... One hell of a lawsuit to mandate money be set aside for a computer. Hope it was for the best though.

System looks good, clean and bright. +1

I'm gonna guess that the title means Much Potential in Latin. To be honest, this is probably one of the Completed Builds on this site that has an original name, and not the word beast.

That said, I like the build, and how you provided a decent description. One would think that NZXT would have more compatibility with their own products than other brands.

Oh, and what do you think of that keyboard? I've been wondering what keyboard I should get later on.

"All powerful", and thanks! Was kind of cheesy going with Latin, but it turned out well enough I suppose.

The rad and fans fit nicely enough, but will only work in this configuration due to a small metal lip protecting some wires.

The keyboard is very high quality, and I love Cherry MX Browns. It is a tad large, and rather comically, refuses to set in some standard keyboard trays. Fits mine like a glove luckily. The LED's have variable light settings, and are fully programmable long with the keys themselves. Extremely high quality brushed aluminum finish, very sturdy. Worth the large price tag? Prolly not. But since it was in budget, it's a beauty. I'd recommend it, so long as you don't mind the price.

My keyboard used to be that clean.... Great monitor though, sames as me!

I completely fail to see what you would upgrade "Here and there". You've got one of the best CPU's in the world and a GPU faster than a Titan X. 32 gigs of RAM which is, at this point in time and unless you're running virtual machines or servers, useless. Not to mention its the best stuff you can buy. I like the 144 Hz panel choice though. Its what I went with in my own build. So many people are screaming I WANT MOAAAREEE FRAMMMES while they have a 60 Hz panel and are already topping out anyways. I guess you could add a samsung 950 M.2 though. Stupid, stupid speed. Blows our regular 850's out of the water. The whole thing reminds me of my own a bit. Good build!

The CPU and RAM I doubt I will need to upgrade, what I meant is going with these vs having to upgrade with a 6700k (Though 16 GBs RAM and a 6700k will remain good for at least 5 years). The only thing I could see needing to upgrade is the GPU, they lose relevancy fairly quickly (And adding more storage, hence the "here and there"). May also be upgrading peripherals, but everything has been quite unreal in quality so far. I decided against an M.2 due to heat concerns, though in hindsight it prolly wouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for the comment!

Insane build component-wise. Enjoy good sir. I have the Dell S2716DG. Excellent gaming monitor. Set an ICC profile on it and the gamma issue is gone.

Future proofed for a while.
