This build came to replace an old Dell XPS 9100 (5yr old computer). Supposed to be a lasting overkill on a budget, came up pretty nice except for a few issues with the FTW mobo from EVGA.
The revision A1 of the x99 FTW motherboard is wrong. EVGA knows it quite well. The memory slots are supposed to be 1-2-3-4 and 8-7-6-5 but any memory on the 1-2-3-4 slots wont work and wont boot up. I got the first 2 MOBOs RMA'd from Amazon and EVGA and no change since they always send the A1 revision. So for the next build, put up some extra cash and get a ROG Asus. Simple.
Other than that, i couldnt be happier with the build. Added 2 more fans on top of the cooler so i have a push-pull in the case.
The main drives are the SSDs in RAID 0 for OS and gaming. The other 3 HDs are only for media as i have quite the movie collection.
Runs most games on Ultra settings and its pretty damn fast in comparison to my last computer.
