After holding onto my last build from 2009, I decided it was time for a new build. The build went very well, no issues with any components. Still gaming on a 1080p monitor, but I am looking to pick up a 27" 2k or a 34" wide 2k monitor in the near future, still not sure what to get. Will update as I begin to break it in.

Update 1/27/16 Used the Asus Z170 easy overclock feature to bump the speed up to 4.63Ghz. X264 stability test went great, load CPU temps topped out at around 79.0c.

Great CPU, OC'd to 4.63 with ease, very stable.
Seems to do a great job keeping my 6700k cool. As my first water cooled unit I am very happy with how quiet it runs.
Good temps, works great.
Very happy with this board, looks great and has all the features I was looking for. No problems so far, happy with the purchase.
Such a great card, I love how quiet it runs, keeps temps real low. Highly recommend spending the extra cash if you are looking for a 980 ti.
This is a pretty cool case, it's well build, lots of room inside, paint looks great, good airflow, one of the better cases I have used. One problem I did have is one of the USB 3.0 ports in the front doesn't seem to work, not a huge issue because I have plenty of them in the back, but would be nice to have both working. One other problem people might have is the weight, very heavy when empty; but it comes with a great carrying handle on top. Not a real issue to me, but some might look for something lighter.
