Been a while since I built something new, and when ASUS announced their new ROG motherboards and Kaby Lake was looking like it could overclock to 5ghz+ on the easy, I decided to put something together :)
The end goal is to go with a dual radiator custom watercooling system and a 1080 Ti, but of course, 1080 Ti isn't out yet, so that will have to wait .
Unfortunately, ASUS does not seem to yet have official drivers for the Z270 on their website, so I'm just using whatever Windows pulled. Also still no word on the BIOS update with the 5ghz OC profile -- but I did tweet them so they can hopefully have those up soon.
This is also missing my sleeved cables. Unfortunately, they couldn't arrive quite as fast as everything else, but they'll go in when the (future) 1080 Ti and watercooling blocks/rad/pump/tubing/etc do.
I'm really baffled by the beauty of the 570X's all-clear design. Not only that, but with all the glass panels removed, it was a join to build in. I'd been mostly a mITX fan, but after seeing this case, I might have become a convert. Now all that's left is for them to make a cube-shaped mITX case in this same design..pretty please?
