Description

UPDATE: Custom Water Cooling Loop added - TOO STOCK? maybe not...

This build is what I am pretty proud of, mainly used to be a powerful game station for Battlefield 4

this is the final build, the main build is older than a year that´s why prices differ.

Some details on the configuration:

CPU is running at 3.6Ghz on all cores in adaptive mode; Base Clock is 100mhz; RAM Speed is 2666mhz at 1.2V;

850 pro is the main SSD here for the OS; 840 evos are running at RAID 0 - for Games only; 470 was a leftover from my previous build; as well as the WD Green 1TB and 3TB for Data;

# GPU GTX 980 is running on a custom fan curve at GPU 1400mhz DDR5 at 7800mhz monitored by GPU Tweak2 Edit: Updated my build today to Asus Strix 1080 OC! damn nice monitored by GPU Tweak2

Strix Raid Soundcard is not a Deluxe but a Pro (not listed) thats why it is cheaper.

ALL PRICES SHOULD BE IN € (cannot find the point in menu to switch currency)

How is the I7 treating you? Im still undicided on which to get the I7 5820K or the I7 6700k... Hope everything runs smooth. Looks great!

I would get the 5820k. Gaming performance is minute between the 2 and the 2 extra cores could halo in the future

True and the thought of future proofing with a 2011v3 MB makes me think that's where i want to put my money. Thanks for the insite.

I had have no real problem with the cpu, I love it to be honest, I can OC it up to 4.2Ghz but it is not needed now (makes no differences for gaming at this point). With the new bios you are allowed to use xmp profiles at 100mhz Base Clock. And I hope the 5820k is more future-proof.

Anyway if you are looking now go with the 5820k, but if you can wait a few month for the new I7-E series could be more attractive

I do like it for gaming, nice precise control. Build quality seems to be ok as well, with the stitched edges.

How did you mod the DVD drive to open the front panel???

remove the brushed aluminum from the front panel using a razor blade or cutter. Next glue or tape the aluminum to the dvd drive. the aluminum is flexible so you want it to touch the eject button.

I really like it, but you need good headphones to hear the difference and activate high impendance manually in the software
