So... First and most importantly, this computer needs a name, so please feel free to write a comment below and tell me what you think.
I know that PSU sucks, but I will explain why I'm using it later.
Long story short, I built it mainly for gaming and some editing from time to time. It's doing quite well so far, no problems, run all my games maxed out at 60+fps, great timeline performance even when editing a 4k video... Overall speaking, it lived up to all my expectations. When idle, its whispering quiet. But when gaming, it sounds kinda like a jet engine, which is the only problem so far.
CPU I could have gone with a 6700k, but as I do some editing, that extra 2 cores will help. Also, it has 28 PCIe lanes rather than 16.
GPU It's a 980Ti from Inno3D. It's running at around 60C right now. A bit loud under load though, but that's to be expected with 3 fans. http://www.inno3d.com/products_detail.php?refid=200
CPU cooler Does a great job, at stock speed, it keeps my chip at 42C ( 18 ambient ). I OC'd it to 4.2 and its still running at a cool 52C. Not bad. ( Stocks fans are noisy as hell though. )
Motherboard So, this board works, but... Just don't buy it. Just don't. It works, but lacks a lot of features. Pros: 1. It works. 2. Looks kinda nice, the lighted back I/O is a nice little touch. 3. On board sound is good. It's a Sound Blaster so... yeah. 4. Lights have breathing effect, kinda cool. Cons: 1.Troubleshooting this thing is a nightmare. It does not have that little display with 2 letters showing whats going wrong, so you have to listen to it beeping. 2. The m.2 port is slooooow. It is not going through the PCIe interface but rather through the Chipset. That locks the speed of my SSD to around 10Gbps. So to solve it, I had bought a M.2 to PCIE card to force it to go through the PCIe interface. Problem solved. 3. POST is extremely slow. takes like 5 seconds after pressing the power button to show the VGA BIOS. Then, the "Gigabyte" logo goes on for like 2 seconds. To make it even worse, as I am running a RAID array ( more on that later ), there is a prompt showing the drives and status for 2 seconds everytime I power on the system. Tried to disable it, cannot. Simple speaking, its takes like 20 seconds from pressing the power button to go to the windows boot screen. Fortunately, as I've got a pretty badass SSD, windows takes just 5 seconds to boot :D 4. Fast Boot does NOT work with windows 10. It just keeps boot looping. 5. The software OC utility is junk. It crashes everytime. To make things even worse, it resets all the OC you have dialed in in BIOS everytime. 6. On board fan controller is not really working. Can't adjust fan curve. ( I have all my fans connected to my H110i GT and use Corsair Link to change the fan curve ) 7. VRM gets really toasty.
Memory I know, I know, I don't need 32GB or RAM for gaming. But here's the fact. In my old computer, I have 16. Sometimes I go over that, so I went with 32. The reason why I went with this set of RAM is because it's fast and... it looks cool.
Storage 950Pro: Really Really Really fast drive. Gets a bit toasty thought 2TB HDDs: Nothing special, just 2 2TB drives in RAID0. Use them to storage my junk 1TB SSHD: I use it to backup my 950Pro. I had it partitioned into to with the other partition running windows 7. Just in case some programs don't run on Windows 10.
Power Supply Now this is where things get a bit interesting. I didn't buy this PSU for this build. It's actually from my old computer. I've been using this for around 1.5 years and it still works, so I guess a few more months will not be a problem. I will be upgrading this computer soon, so it is more that likely for me to change to a better PSU. But for now, as I'm only drawing around 400W from it, that should not be a very big problem.
Fans Theses Thermaltake fans looks really cool. Keeps my PC cool but still being very quiet. One thing though is that it would be great if I could control the RGB lights through software.
USB3.1 Card Saw this in the store, was only $25, so... I just grabbed one.
M.2 to PCIe It works. And it's only $7. Got it from TaoBao.
Last but not least, the case Case This case looks awesome. Just love the glass panels. And to my surprise, cooling is actually not bad. The wind tunnel thing at the front works. However, This case, ( as expected ) is a fingerprint magnet. Keeping it clean is just a nightmare.
Future Plans I will very likely be building a custom liquid cooling loop with hard pipes and probably adding another 980Ti. Ain't gonna happen soon thought cause I have 3 exams in April. Yes, 3. My school exam, ACT, and a exam for a Physics course I am taking at a local university. Fingers crossed :D
