This is the first computer I have been able to build just how I want it. When I learned about the 1080's coming out, I figured it was the perfect time to build a new rig. I mainly use this computer for gaming. Please don't tell my wife how much this build cost.
Part wise, I knew I wanted to go with an i7 6700K and a GTX 1080. I was lucky to get my hands on an ASUS STRIX 1080. The mobo gave me all the features that I was looking for, and 16 gigs of DDR4-3000 would be fine. I know that with Skylake, you are only guaranteed 2133, but most set ups will be able to take advantage of the 3000 with an XMP OC. I went with a modest OC of the 6700K to 4.6Ghz, and it appears to be stable. The AIO liquid cooler keeps the temps at a reasonable level, however the temps are a bit higher that I would have liked. I don't care for the cables on the Corsair AIO, especially the USB cable; I can't seem to put it anywhere out of the way. The case is alright, I initially wanted the EVOLV case but wanted to go with a full tower.
The big debate for me was whether or not to go 2160p/60hz or 1440p/144hz. I ended up going with the 1440p/144hz with g-sync because I want to be able to max out settings and hit high fps. Once 4k monitors start having higher refresh rates, then I will most likely jump to one. But for now, 1440p is fine.
The build is called "The Hound" because for one, he is my favorite character on GoT, and second, it's a BAMF that kicks the crap out of any other PC I have ever had.
