I built this system for iRacing. I wanted a system that far exceeded the minimum requirements of the sim so that i could run with all the eye candy on. It took me about 4-1/2 hours to build the system, taking my time and making sure I did everything correct. It was my first complete build from scratch.
I am running everything stock and it is smooth. The Gigabyte GPU is awesome! The AOC monitors are great, the system runs really cool and is super silent. I have a total of 6 fans on the MB, 3 on the GPU and the PSU so there is lots of airflow.
The Asus MB with fan control is awesome, as it monitors the temperatures and adjudt the fans as required.
I cannot say enough about Partpicker.com. It made picking the parts and buying them so simple. I am extremely pleased with this build, and i havent overclocked anything yet!
