Because I personally feel like I'm NOT getting what I paid for.
Hmm, was money an issue with this build? My wife runs autodesk inventor, and it seems to work 10x better on her 6850k than my 7700k...
Lol, yeah, don't show this to her :P
I really wanted to keep it inside the case, but I simply could not reach the back fitting.It's seriously in the worst spot it can be. After a few builds, you're right, this is what the next step to a builder should be. This is my 3rd case mod, and my 1st overall FULL case mod.
Well, after the first pic, I thought... "guess i'm modding this old azz case" lol
There's two RGB headers on this board.
With software. Corsair Link or ASUS Aurasync. I think Gigabyte also has software. This is possible if you have RGB fans attached to the mobo itself and not the power supply.
Have you tried using Corsair Link to control the blinking?
The case fans in this build are strictly for re-use purposes. Sickleflows are loud, but they get the job done really well, and as a bonus they're cheap. I highly recommend Corsair SP or ML lines, or bequiet fans, or even EK Vardars.

You: "We will rebuild"
Your uncle: "Hold my beer..."
Looks very well built, and I'll give it a thumbs up. A few things while perusing the photos. Not enough white on the inside of your build, it seems a little out of place, and a few more white painted spots would probably work well. The white light is obviously welcome, but even then, the inside of your case still looks dark. Your external cable management is... eh... okay I guess. I know you could probably do a little better as you did a great job with your TV cables. As far as internal cable management, I feel like you could tidy up the bottom front of your case, and you probably have the same sentiment as I do with molex adapters: I hate molex. All in all, a very well built, hope you enjoy your PC.
Thanks much! Stay tuned for more pics incoming as this is a build log.
I might use an Ichigo figurine for the inside, but the window is most definitely going to be Toshiro.
Thanks! Still in progress, but you've already seen the motherboard and CPU (really glad I got both in one day). Which floppy space usb thing we talking here? If it's the 5.25" red brick looking thing (that I painted white), that one I got off amazon, it's made by silverstone.
Locked processors can still have their BCLK adjusted. That being said, this is more of an adjustment than it is an overclock. The thing is... adjusting the BCLK is riskier than overclocking the turbo frequency, which is technically what unlocked overclocking is. Because "K" processors have these multipliers, you simply need to change the ratios, and that will multiply the base clock (BCLK) while turbo is on. You can still adjust the BCLK on a locked processor so the locked multipliers multiply a higher BCLK, resulting in a higher turbo frequency. Again... that's slightly risky as it's not something intel locked CPU's are designed for.
You can't really go wrong with any three of those boards, although if I were to choose between the three, it'd be a toss up between the Aorus 7 or the ASUS Z270e.
Clean for a first build. I do question your choice of the X99 platform, as that usually yields better results in productivity, and less for overall gaming where the Z170/Z270 chipsets shine. Overall, your choices are generally favorable. You still have overclocking ability, and your cable management is good. The front of your build can use a little work, and can easily look better with custom cables from, say, cablemod. As your build continues to grow, my suggestion is to replace the Noctua cooler with possibly an AIO later in life as the 6800k does run hot.
He was an option. I picked between Kenpachi, Grimmjow, and Toshiro. When my wife bought the paint... I immediately went Toshiro.
Look through the photos, this is a rebuild. The first few pics is what it used to look like.
You thought that was a mousepad... ORE GA! KONO DIO DA!!!
No, but seriously, that's a Roccat. Before the roccat, we were using a Love Live! SIF Weiss Schwarz playmat.
Just posted my build log of Toshiro. He's not done yet, but I feel like I'm starting to get close.
Military housing sucks. Ugh!!! :P
The theme was chosen by my wife, and like most X99's, this build is treated as a work station. This is by no means my "first ever build" or my "personal gaming computer."
Gonna find out if I can add pics, cuz these were immediately after the build was done to include monitor testing and such. The setup is just about complete, so I'll upload something of that nature. Also... it's base housing... so the room's gonna suck regardless lol.
Thanks a bunch! I'm actually working on another build featuring the 7700k, and this time, the case modding is a little more extreme. Pikachu simply got a paint job... Toshiro Hitsugaya is going all out.
Because this was built in December... after black friday sales...
