Description

This is my best computer yet. I can run BF1 with render resolution set to 2560x1440 (downscaled to 1920x1080 because of the monitor) and consistently draw 90fps with no drop. The i7-7700 performs beautifully under load, and the stock cooler isn't half bad. I will upgrade to a better non-liquid CPU cooler in the future though.

HERE IS THE LIST BREAKDOWN IN TEXT

3.6GHz Quad-Core i7 CPU --- GTX 1080 8GB GPU w/ 1.72GHz Core Clock/1.86GHz Boost Clock --- 4x4GB (16GB) DDR4-2400 CAS 16 Memory --- Z270 Motherboard --- PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter --- 120GB 2.5" SSD w/ 2TB 7200RPM HDD --- 650W 80+ Gold Certified PSU --- BD Reader, DVD/CD Writer Optical Drive --- ATX Mid Tower Case w/ 4 Case Fans --- Windows 10 Home (64-bit) --- Wired Mechanical Gaming Keyboard --- Wired Optical Gaming Mouse --- 11.8"x9.2" Gaming Mouse Pad --- Memory Foam Keyboard & Wrist Rest --- 7.1 Channel Wireless Headset --- 1920x1080 1ms 60Hz Monitor

Maybe he wanted the features on that specific board. Also leaves more room for future upgrades.

Nice. You should think about cable managing and routing all the cabling behind the motherboard for a cleaner look.

The PSU is a semi-modular and the included cables are an extreme hassle to get them any more neatly behind the mobo. I am going to replace all the cables with much more manageable ones in the future or on my next build.

More pics please, but otherwise looks good. Was the 4x4 RAM config for aesthetics?
