At the time the case was cheaper.

That GPU is compatible with your board.

No. Obtaining a crack of Windows 8.1 is pirating, and many times cracks have viruses. We discourage anyone from using cracks.

The cable from the monitor will attach into the back of the GPU.

The Athlon 860k does not have integrated graphics. You will need a graphics card before you can get anything to display.

The fans that we used are Corsair SP-120's.

Thanks, also, with DX12 coming out soon, you will be able to take advantage or VRAM stacking on the cards!

Thank you, it's very quiet, even under load. Part of it is the really good fan control the Asus board has. The loudest part of the system is the PSU.

Yep, the lighting is built onto the board. It shows the PCB border between the sound strip and the rest of the board

The H7 cost us about 35$, and considering the killer looks and solid performance, I'd say it gives the 212 Evo a good run for the money.

Its much more than a 10FPS gain. It got about 150 or so FPS on ultra in BF4.

Also, I really wouldn't recommend packing a computer in a suitcase unless you can pack it very very well, the case is fairly fragile however.

Yes, I'm sure you could stuff one in if you wanted.

I would say probably not. It is slightly bigger than you think and will probably not fit well in a suitcase. However, it is fairly slim. So if you have the vertical room then it should fit. Just make sure you support the GPU well and the cooler.

We did install a fan controller in this system. We are using the Grid + in this system to control all the fans. If you let all the fans run at medium to full speeds it can be fairly loud, so I would recommend a fan controller.

Those top fans are exhaust in order to create an airflow over the cards, and over the rest of the motherboard and VRM's etc. We did have some 80mm fans spec'd for this build, but they proved too loud.

The client had had the board for a fair amount of time, and made sure to update the bios before we did this build. Make sure the board is running bios F4

Both GPU's run at 25-27 idle and max out at about 75 at load.

Yes, it's sitting at a solid 4.2GHz stable. We could probably push it a little further but we prefer stability and reliability over performance.

Yes, it's an insanely fast drive. It almost saturates the SATA 6gb/s speed...

It's a good quality case, with a few minor design drawbacks such as no HDD cage and terrible PCI bracket thumb screw mounting, but otherwise it looks great and has very high quality construction.

It was unfortunate that the h100i came dead, it would have completed the look.

An h100i is coming soon, the one which was initially supposed to go in this build arrived DOA, and a replacement is coming next Monday.

The prices listed are not the prices paid for the components themselves. This build was built when each set of RAM was roughly 65-70$. Your PCPartpicker is showing British prices rather than prices in the US.

The air 240 has excellent airflow through the entire case, which keeps the GPUs at a low temperature.

Thanks, and the H100i we ordered for the build came DOA, a replacement is coming next Monday to finish off the build.

The GTX 960 release date is rumored to be in January, and multiple sources say the same thing, so the assumption is it will be released later this month sometime.

This case only fits mITX and mATX, and managed to push this chip to 4.2GHz stable.

There is a case fan located directly above the motherboard pulling hot air out the top of the case. I agree completely about the 860k

I would not use z87 and upgradeability in the same sentence. Z97 is out, which is the successor to z87 and unlike z87, it supports Intel's 5th generation Broadwell CPU's. If z97 is out, why buy z87? Usually z97 boards are the same price if not cheaper.

At the time of purchase the components costed around 425$. In addition the Gigabyte board you listed does not have an on-board USB 3.0 header
