$400 of import fees for me then lol.
One for the PCPP and MSI guys, as I'm in the UK, will I have to pay tax and import fees?
The 6700K has a higher IPC rate as well.
The 6700K has better single thread performance than Broadwell-E, and generally games only utilise a single thread. Also, If I went for Broadwell-E, I would have to kill off the SLI.
Absolutely beautiful. Shows what can be done in a tiny case. +1
Austin Powers reference, right? +1
So if you win you may not get the PC you voted for?
I thought the EVGA cooler looked horrid in the initial photos, but in the flesh and in a case it looks much better.
Very nice and the first build I've seen on here with an EVGA 1070. I wish I could afford a PC like this.
I feel the Doritos provide an unfair advantage.
How is the PC may I ask?
I feel the same way.
IMO Phillip's but the RAM should be changed.
+1, just for Strafe RGB!
Just kidding, your PC and desk is awesome too. Would prefer a side-by-side monitor setup instead of stacked.
OK, glad I could help.
Is this alright?
Wow. These ThermalTake cases are really loved at the moment! This is a really nice build, and I hope you are proud of yourself for building something this magnificent.
P.S. Did you decide against using the cat? I would have SLI-ed it with that 970 if I were you!
This is a really cool SFF build. You should be proud of this. You should also be proud of the fact you could get a non-K SKU to 4.75 GHz. My friend's 6600K won't get there! You have quite literally won the silicon lottery wit that chip. Well done with the build, and I wish I had a PC like this.
The word 'bomb' comes to mind.
Even if you didn't think of it, it would be a ballin' LAN box!
Yeah, what you said! Lol.
Thanks! I have upvoted your build. It looks really cool.
Page 4?!?! Jesus!
This must be THE BEST LAN box. Period.
I didn't like them, I tried one at my local PC hardware store, and I bought a STRAFE RGB the same day. Haven't regretted the decision, and in my opinion the MX Browns are better than the Romer-Gs, I thought they felt more like membrane switches than anything else. The backlight may look better on the G910, but i prefer the simpler, smaller design of the STRAFE.
Not on the STRAFE RGB, that only affects the K70 RGB and K95 RGB because they use an older LED controller, which doesn't completely support 16.8 mil colors. The STRAFE RGB has an updated LED controller, and doesn't have the flickering issue.
Thanks! I thought so too.
This is really nice! I wish my first PC was this good! Well done with the build, I know how annoying having to return parts while building can be. Overall a very well balanced first build. I congratulate you and welcome to PCPartPicker!
What did you think of the cables?
Two days to go! (and then another week till it's drawn).
7th?! I never thought I would get this high!
This is almost too clean. I love this and wish my desk could look like this some day. I just have no space at the moment it feels.
Have you seen it yet? If so, what do you think of it?
Only just realized, this system is perfect for 4k gaming at 60fps. How did I not notice before?!
Now the 11th!
I don't think I'm going to win either, but you don't have a chance if you don't enter. I partially do these for fun as I like putting lists together on a budget for friends and family, This is one of the firsts lists for myself!
I love how you have been restrained, unlike me, (build here : https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/guide/6RCmP6/msi-build-your-dream-pc-guide-black-and-white-red-isnt-me ), and have shown you don't need the best PC to enter this contest. The GTX 970, with a decent OC can run Star Wars Battlefront 3 at 4K at around 40fps, BTW.
I like the way you have thought everything out, and know what you will do if you win. +1

Nice idea of including a custom WC loop. I was thinking about it but SLI seemed a better option at the time. +1

I love my STRAFE RGB MX Brown board. It is wonderful.
I have updated my list, so feel free to upvote again, as votes are deleted when you make a revision.
Thanks! Looks like you are going to win, so unless something changes, enjoy your new PC!
+1ed. Feel free to check out mine if you like!
Why don't you use the new Bitfenix Alchemy 2.0 sleeved cables? I think they look really good and there is a wide selection of colours available.
If I don't win the contest (very likely) I have no budget for a new PC, or even an upgrade. I am going to have to wait a while yet.

Yay! I'm only on the 14th page!
God that board is expensive. +1 though! Check out my guide if you wish: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/guide/6RCmP6/msi-build-your-dream-pc-guide-black-and-white-red-isnt-me
