Is this a joke? That OS...
What MOBO and RAM u guys think would suit better this build ? I knew the RAM was overkill but about the MOBO as Ghazh said, planning to overclock in fullest potential as soon as some decent cooler arrives.
i7-6700K | Z170 Class. K | 16GB DDR4-3200 | GTX-980ti | Samsung 950 Pro RAID0 | SuperNOVA 1Kw P2 | Lian Li PC-07S
ROG Swift PG348Q | Ducky DSX | Zowie ZA11 | Xonar Essence One | Tannoy Reveal 402
it`s a striped Down version of the high-end ROG boards. It`s 100% aimed at games WHO allso wants to be able to do a good OC without to many fancy Things and it has a REALY good on-board sound Card
The RAM are overkill.
Intel i5 2500K: Asus Masimux IV Extreme: Palit GTX 680 Jetstream: Chieftec Nitro Series 1200W:Corsair H-100 Hydro:
8Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz CL8: Crucial M4 128Gb+256Gb: Creative Sound Blaster Z: Corsair Obsidian 800D: Plextor PX-880SA
If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength

In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.
Just finished my new build this morning...
i7-4770k overclocked to 4.2GHz @ 1.145v with 8GB of Corsair Dominator GT running at 2000MHz @ 1.65v. GPUs are EVGA 660Ti FTW Sig 2 in SLI w/ GTX 770 backplates. I custom made the cables (my first set). It's all housed in a Fractal Design XL R2.
I don't like the look of the missing HDD cage in the middle. I toyed with removing both but the empty space looked just as awkward to me. I'm not having any heat issues so it just became an aesthetic decision.
If so, or even not, how did you route them from behind your motherboard?
It looks very nice, and front panel connectors are a bane of my existence, all my other cables in my case are minimalist, and then ugly unsleeved front panel cables.
That might be a way for me to minimise the ugliness. ._.
Just ordered a Crucial MX100, recently picked up a second 3x2GB Corsair kit (stuff your "matched DIMMs", not running at highest spec) and will be changing from CCFL to UV LEDs since these CCFLs are kinda crap.
Yeah, it's a Fractal ARC XL, I have a Fractal Midi R2, so it's basically the same layout, his is just a bit larger.
I can't figure out for the life of me how he put it horizontally behind the board, and it come out so vertically beneath it. There must be some sort of tape.. Or something. You don't happen to have any pictures of the way that you do it at all please?
Can't post pictures at the moment because A: I'm at work and B: There's not much to look at, no fancy water cooling, just a black tower case, a couple of monitors and cables everywhere (living in a temporary summer location atm)

The Xeon CPU is basically an i7-4770 without any integrated GPU, runs cooler, has a lower TDP and is possibly better binned, and also ~50€ cheaper. Obviously can't be OC'ed though (other than BCLK OC'ing). During this warm summer weather (room temp ~27C) it maxes out at 39C. So, you know, that's pretty good

I/O connectors are almost always an issue. I started to do something with them but the blended in with the round SATA cables I used and they're pretty difficult to see.

Here's a picture of the cable side.
And while it doesn't make a huge difference, the case is an XL R2 (Define).
