This is something I've always wanted and I finally made it happen after over 10 years of not having a gaming PC so I went a little overboard and spent more then I had planned. It was definitely worth it. The build process was as smooth as it could be. The full size Corsair 780 case has an ample amount of space to work in and large enough for a custom cooling loop when the time comes. For now, I'm cooling my 8700k with the Kraken x62 pushing out of the top. Processor overclocked to 5.0ghz stable between 60-76°C under full synthetic load (stress test). When gaming i havent seen it peak above 57°C. MSI Godlike gaming is the ideal motherboard for overclocking as it holds voltages stable where other mobos can not. The RGB ont this motherboard is unmatched as well. 16gb 3000Mhz G. Skill ripjaw RAM for now. Will eventually uprgrade to the Trident Z RGB 64gb. Currently running the MSI gaming trio 1080Ti card. Phenomenal card! Super quiet and can be easily overclocked with stock cooling. I have my GPU overclocked @ 2.0ghz with memory at 1.5ghz. With stock cooling it hasn't seen more than 60°C under full load while running Time spy benchmark. 850W power supply and a 27" 1440 monitor to display this beast. Fastest computer I have ever used.
