Description

After not having a gaming system for over a year, I was able to do some scavenging and build this system with peripherals for $1200. All the SSD's and excess amount of RAM have no purpose, but due to the fact I was able to find them all for the cheap, I figured why not.

I knew I wanted to build a system, when I heard the new GTX 1070's and 1080's were around the corner. That being said, the idea behind the system was to build around the 1070. I ended up going with a strix 1070, simply because it was one of the few in stock at a reasonable cost of only $425. I was able to obtain all the ram, hdd's and ssd's, cpu, motherboard, and case from a guy for $800 who was moving and wanted to get rid of the parts. Originally the system had a GTX 980 as well, but after putting everything together the way I wanted, I decided I wanted to stick with the idea of getting a 1070, so I sold the 980, although it performed to all of my needs. After all was said and done, Project Strix become a reality.

Overall the system has been running great with the CPU staying @ a max of 60c under full load and the 1070 stays under 65c @ full load boosted to 1850 mhz.

The system runs all games i've played completely maxxed out at 1080p, 144hz.

I have the same case and I was planning on moving one of my front fans to bottom in front of PSU. Did you notice any decrease in GPU or CPU temps with it?

Also, that guy really had 1000W PSU for 980? Wow.

I didn't notice any major temp changes. Also, yeah, it really did come with that PSU. 1000w Psu's are beyond overkill now a days lol.
