This is my second update since building this rig in 2013. Links to the original build and first update are below. The main purpose of this update was to improve gaming performance, theme consistency and build aesthetics.
i7-5820k => i7-6800k I wanted to use the i7-5820k in my home server (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/R2xG3C) so I decided to pick up a 6800k for the gaming rig.
Added an M.2 NVME drive (Samsung 960 Pro 512GB) Couldn't resist this upgrade.
GTX 970 (x2) => GTX 1080ti This was a necessary upgrade in order to push my 4k screens to their full potential which I was previously unable to do with my SLI GTX 970 setup. After upgrading my graphics card I was able to play basically every game at 4k Ultra 60fps. About a month later I decided to swap out my display for something a little more gamer-centric with a higher refresh rate.
Samsung UHD 28" (x2) => Asus pg348q
I replaced the green corsair professional cables with UV reactive cable extensions from primochill.
Replaced Phobya UV LEDs with 4 UV Cold Cathode and a high quality inverter. I definitely prefer the CCFL UV lights over the LEDs because the CCFLs don't cast any ambient blue/purple light like the UV LEDs and they seem to maintain their brightness better over time.
Created custom vinyl labels/wraps for the PSU, SSD, side panel, front-panel IO and fan cover
2017.08.24 - New PSU Cables from CableMod. I was having issues with the ones I had previously purchased. Added the matching CableMod AIO sleeve as well.
