IMPORTANT NOTICE PLEASE READ
First of all, this is a computer for underneath you desk. It fitted perfectly underneath mine. Secondly, the GPU choice is primarily up to you, I do not pick any side. Right now I use a 700-series GPU for mainly CUDA*. I used a 290 for a while, but I really prefer CUDA over OpenGL. I don't run any graphically intensive games on my system so I don't need a lot of power. I will probably buy a consumer grade Pascal GPU when they're on the market.
*GPU acceleration in programs like Vegas Pro, Media Encoder, Premiere.
The Building Experience
I'd say not too shabby. Of course it was fun, but I don't know, there was something to it. Maybe it was the case. Like I said, it fits perfectly, but it not the nicest to work in. I was really excited though about Skylake. And I really love the motherboard. Asus knows how to deliver quality and they have just proven it again. It's not expensive, but it's kicks ***. It has eight power phases which is good enough for Skylake, since it overclocks well on just about any motherboard with an "overclockable chipset". The system boots up so fast it's crazy. Not as fast as a MacBook Air though;) Love you, Apple.
PSU choice might seem a bit weird, but I want to take all precautions against possibly frying my machine. Case got a dust filter in the front panel.
I think I received one of the better samples of the 6700K. Overclocks way better than I expected and overall it performs great.
Does the job well. Recommended to install Corsair Link 4 and turn the fan profile to quiet.
Rock solid board. No overly done features and it just plain always works. Love the UEFI BIOS. Couldn't get Extreme CPU Overvolting switch to work though. Probably a mistake on my end.
Works well, not really suited for overclocking.
Great SSD. Reliable, stable and fast.
I can't give three stars because it's so much slower than an SSD. I knew what I was getting. Nice mass storage.
Case is not one of my favorites. Had to pick it because it fits under my desk drawers. Not really nice to work in since you have to remove everything to change something in the bottom compartment.
Amazing power supply. 10/10 ~ IGN.
