Description

When creating this build I opted to keep it low profile and sleek however still bringing extra touches like custom cables and vinyls and theeming the system on my passion for cars into the build.

The CPU is more than enough to handle Gaming whilst multi-tasking alot of other processes without any slow down, furthermore the plan is to upgrade to the R7 3/4XXX in 2020 due to AMDs support for the socket. The memory however is not as good. It's partially my fault as I didn't thoroughly check out the QVL list. When setting the DOCP profile to 3200 MHz in the BIOS the machine will not post, manually configuring the RAM to run at 3200MHz will not work either however, I can achieve somewhat stability with a custom 2800MHz profile however even that will still crash sometimes and reset the RAM to running in a 2133 MHz configuration.

As for storage, I boot from and put applications and mission crititcal files onto the UV400 drive where as for my games and other applications that I am not worried about losing I have them stored on the A400 Drives set up in a RAID 0 Array.

As for the GPU I was planning on waiting for the 20 series cards however I got the 1080 used and it is good enough to drive my monitor at high settings at 80-100 FPS in most titles however I do plan to upgrade in the future to allow my monitor to reach its full potential.

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Very limited memory support.

Video Card

Not quite overkill but a very good GPU none the less. Little bit of coil whine.

Case

Beautiful case, very easy to customise and work with.

Monitor

Stunning example of this monitor. Won the lottery with the panels on my first try.

Very nice looking build. Great work! I like the sticker-bomb decal. And the Skyline, of course.
