Description

Have/want to add sleeved cables, m.2 ssd, waterblock for 1070, and hopefully get the Flyers' logo etched in the plexi.

I also plan on going to hard tubing when I get the gpu block and then swapping out the black barbed fittings on the H320 X2 with white compression fittings.

I've not dived into OCing anything outside of using ASUS' auto program, probably won't until I finish up the loop.

Anything not priced was a carry-over.

EDIT 7/9/16

Ended up giving the ASUS Deluxe to a friend in exchange for a new Gigabyte Phoenix. Outside of my first ever build which was a DFI Lanparty, I've always used ASUS. Naturally I was a bit skeptical but the black, white, and orange color scheme really matched well so I rolled the dice and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I'll be sure to update the pics shortly. I also haven't dipped into the BIOS or any advanced options yet.

I also added the Samsung M.2. card, I'll be sure to give it a review after I've put it to some use over the next couple of days.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Awesome cooler and very large. Minimal headache to drain, fill, and bleed. My biggest concern is the quality of the mounting hardware for anything not 2011. The standoffs broke with minimal force when I was installing it on my ASUS Z77 Sabertooth board. While Swiftech's customer service did respond to me relatively quickly, I ultimately decided to go with the 2011-v3 board that didn't require them. I probably won't go AIO again and just make the jump to full custom but this was definitely a great stepping stone.

Case

This case is very easy to work with and take apart to either paint or mod. I love the separated chassis that keeps the PSU and 90% of the cables out of eyesight. Only thing I would tell someone interested in the case to be wary of is sizing with AIO coolers and large gpus.

Sorry, I detest the Flyers... where's the down button for this build?? LOL Nice build other than that. I was going to suggest getting the logo etched until I saw you mentioned that in your comments. I would suggest a Wild logo, but it wouldn't go with the orange. :D Enjoy!

Hahah, I'm pretty sure you can either love or hate the Flyers; there's no inbetween. As for the Wild, they were pretty fun to watch this year, confusing a bit given the roster but fun. But thanks!

I really love it and glad that I didn't take the IPS monitor gamble (getting a good screen) just yet. I can tell a huge difference with the refresh rate and gsync as compared to my previous setup. Only thing is 27" is a tad too big for my desk, luckily I can have the base partially on the other desk behind mine.

I just now purchased a 5820k and a GTX 1070 myself. Great combo.

I took a gamble on a factory recertified/refurbished one.
