well i have had ,y computer for about half a week now and it runs fantastically. i still need to do some minor changes to fans and so on before i overclock my CPU and GPU. i did notice that setting up the sli was extremely tricky but i will talk about that in just a second. For now I will just go through the list.
so for the CPU I wanted on that was fairly cheap and i could overclock to at least 4.5 without any problems. My CPU is from Costa Rica, which most of their batches have a high clock rating so im going to try and push for at max 4.8.
for the cooling i was like i dont really like fan towers, so i did not get one. i will say it fits fantastically in the case. although you have to place the Rad on top its cover by the top plastic so you cant see it :) i am having problems with one of my cooler fans and that one of the reasons i have not overclocked yet. (basicly its not spinning as fast as the other one.)
for the motherboard, i wish i would have gone with the Asus sabertooth Z87 but it does not come with wi-fi (im not going to drill holes in my wall to get to the router) so this was my next option. im not sure if its the mobo or the cards or even Win 8 but my 2 cards just did not want to sli. i finally got it but it really should not have been that difficult.
for the ram... i mean come, on its ram. I went with the Vengeance because i really have heard nothing bad about it.
ok so i bought 2 sandisk extreme II for my RAID 0 and i was going to run it in the two 6 Gb/s. i dont know if this is for all the boards but on this one you can NOT use the 6Gb/s ports for RAID. really i could not even get it to realize i had 2 drive in each one.
for mass storage i did not want to replace/add any drives any time soon so i was like what the heck.... 2Tb
Some of you are probably like why 2 760s when you could buy a 780 and save some cash.... well here is the reason, the 2 760s can out preform a gtx titan and can most certainly out preform a single 780.
THE CASE. personally i freaking love tron, this reminded me of it, enough said, lets move on.
for air flow i actually could not find the 140mm but the 2 120mm work great in the front( the case did come with a 140mm i did not know about so i just used that.)
um really i dont need to talk about the os and the blue-ray. it a blue-ray and windows os.
the keyboard i wanted cherry mx browns so i got the G710+ and it also has noise rings on each key so it is not as load as an elephant walking on creeky wooden floors.
PS I WILL BE UPLOADING MORE PICTURES MY FRIEND TOOK!!!!
I don't remember all the prices (i'll try to update it) but the total was like $2214
