Corsair Vengeance RGB Memory 32GB

2016.04.04:

Had to switch the H100v2 Fans! They were so freaking annoying. Stayed Corsair but updated to

  ++ Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050006-WW)

     + Used the red colored ring to keep the theme going.

           !! Huge improvement !!

Added a LED Fan to the side of case. NZXT LED. (See Image)

Logitech G35 Headset 7.1 perfect fro BlackOps III

Original Build Notes:

Only had one issue with the Memory and MB. I needed to place it in slots 3&4 and everything else worked well.

So, here is how some more aspects of the build. My last custom build was in 2004 and 11years later only a few things have changed. Key and awesome is liquid coolers. Never appeared to be a good idea to put a fluid inside my case. but WOW. I was impressed on how simple it was and how big the radiator is. Yet, I think I may move switch it around and get the tubes out and around to the other side. I feel pretty dumb after seeing the build ChrisPC_I.T did. (http://pcpartpicker.com/b/kD9WGX ) I should have peeked around before I finished this build.

Another change is really new is the Samsung 950 PRO a hard drive that plugs into the Motherboard. What!? that was cool and easy and the speed was awesome! A second one is quickly on the horizon.

Overall, I am extremely happy with the build and now understand builds are not about the savings like in 1990's it is the ability to customize and get a real understanding of the hardware and the connection between man and machine.

I'm currently torn between the Titan X Pascal and maybe two Corsair 1080 Seahawks, I'm not entirely sure which one I should get, but looking at the temps of the Seahawk it's pretty good compared to the Titan X Pascal which hoovers around 75 C under load so idk right now.

I can not get my temps over 45 degrees.

That is not a myth actually. Altough not significant, it IS affect performance. And I think it looks better... But it is make sense to let the M.2 slot under the CPU socket to get some air by placing the gpu on the second slot...

He's fine with where it is. The bottom slot on this board is also pcie 3.0 x 16. Same bandwidth/performance as top slot.
