Skylake build update
From entry level to high end.
It started with an i5 6500 and a Gigabyte B150.
I got a dual monitor setup but it wasn't enough for my simracing rig.
Later on i decided to upgrade to Core i7 with a proper Z170 motherboard.
When GTX 1080 got launched, I struggled to buy one in my country, I ordered an Asus Strix 1080 but it would take a month to arrive, so I ordered an Asus Founders edition.
Still waiting for the Strix to arrive to sell the founders edition, even I have doubts to sell or keep the founders edition.
Im still deciding to get a pair of GSKILL Trident Z memory, change my Corsair PSU for and EVGA G2 850w, a Samsung 950 Pro m.2 or a Samgung 850 EVO 500gb .
What would be your choice?
And another question, would you install a NZXT G10 to a GTX 1080 FE??
Corsair RM850i Corsair H100i v2 Kraken G10
Upgraded the CXM 750 for a RM850i to get a more reliable PSU, found out that the CXM series are prone to failure for low quality components.
Installed a Kraken G10 with a Kraken X31 on ASUS 1080 FE, immediately notice a drop on temps, 30ª C idle up to 54-56ª C on load when it used to be 80-83ª on load while gaming.
More to come, would like to get a NVME drive and maybe a case swap to a Tt Core P3.
