Description

money not relevant for something i love doing. this is over a period of time upgrading (not at once) running at stable 5.0Ghz i7-7700K with AOI 280mm liquid cooler on performance setting from corsair link software. beautiful RGB is what caught my eyes. currently boot up within 5 seconds because of M.2 samsung 960 evo. OC asus GTX 1080 to maxium for gaming.

currently playing overwatch on ultra setting reaching 120 fps at 100% render scale (not good at 200% - fps dropped dramatically to 40-60fps)

also currently, playing Destiny 2 at highest setting on everything no problem (also at 100% render scale)

2 games above i mentioned are playing on 4K setting (samsung u28e590d 4k, 1ms monitor)

the case is really awesome because of tempered glass that's why i bought it for RGB

i love the 2 LED strips on the bottom sync with asus aura and everything on inside the case.

i really want to delid my i7 but i'm so scare. I've never done so. let me know your thought...happy building!

Since your native resolution is 3840x2160, wouldn't 200% render scale mean it was rendering the game at 7680x4320 and then downsample it to native? I'm actually surprised that even the GTX 1080 can render Overwatch at 8k / ultra detail and still get 40-60 FPS.

On a side note, for a build with "full RGB" in the title, I expect to see RGB M.2 drives.

If there is one M.2 RGB lol. I will throw money i dont have at it and sell my soul to the devil to obtain it.

I used to love gaming on 1920 resolution. It was amazing until i tried 4K gaming. Blew my mind on how much details i’ve missed.

How much is your soul worth?

I can't seem to find the buy button. How much is it?

xneedspeedx submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

should be more than M.2 RGB :D

Had to check out your build too my man. Looks nice! Love the wide tempered glass face. Shows the inside cleanly. Your fan orientation is front intake through the rad and exhaust top and back right? If so, that looks like it would work like a charm.

xneedspeedx submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

sir, yes sir. 2 front intake, 3 exhaust (top and rear). my gpu pushed all hot air out and heat rises so i need more exhaust than intake. Thanks for checking it out lol.

Makes sense. Im starting to play around with Unreal Engine and Unity with creating so if my temps start rising under load, I might put some more exhausts to get the hot air out. Stay up my man.
