The original build had 5820k, I received the 6950x first, to complete the build I had t to wait for my TWO 1080'S. This X99 build Started was mainly build for Productivity and to be able to upgrade to Broadwell E and Pascal when released.
I got the Silver Evolv ATX Limited Addition, it's a work of art and very easy to work with. To hold off until I got my hands on two strix I had to keep my old GTX 970s
I was very tempted in getting Dual 980ti's at the time of upgrades but it was only a couple months away so I dealt with it.
UPDATE: 05/31/16 I just upgraded to I7 6950x I wasn't going to but I got it at microcenter for $300 less than it would of cost if I bought it anywhere else. Plus I got the replacement warranty which is great. If for some odd reason I have an issue with it I can get it replaced or get the full amount as store credit. So I said why not.
Yes I'm very aware I could of gotten the Xeon E5-2680 v4 However that would of increased the cost an additional $200 from what I paid for the 6950X.
Update 06/24/16 While I wait for Microcenter to get the Stix OC in stock, I got a text saying they had some 1070's. So Went down and grabbed Msi GTX 1070 man that thing has Oc headroom galore. I didn't get the X version but this thing OC'd so well no reason to get the X for a card that was going to sit in my rig for maybe a couple of weeks.
Update: 06/30/16 Of course right when I get the 1070 I get a message saying they have the Stix OC 1080's. Which was fine I had the cash saved for them.
I got lucky with my cpu It's stable 4.6 didn't have to pull the voltage past 1.35. I do notice at times It does over volts itself to around 1.40 So I might throttle back to 4.4 and call it day. But so far the temps are not passing 65 degrees C on max load during a torture test.
The Stix OC 1080's I got them to a stable Overclock of 2100.5. I can't wait for custom bios so I can get rid of Boost 3.0 and hard cap them at 2100. :)
So now I have a spare 5820k, GTX 970 and a GTX 1070.
My Nephew doesn't have a rig so I'm going to build him 1080p gaming rig with the 970 and 5820k. The 1070 is going into my kids build.
As for monitors I have the LG 34UC98-W I didn't buy it was a gift. Since I do play games from time to time. I'm planning on Getting a pair X34p's when they come out or if they Make 4k's with higher hz I might go that route.
The Cables I got are the corsair ones, they are ok but are ***** to train, so I ordered some custom cables and going to be replacing those. All in all I'm happy with this build, I'm considering doing a full custom water loop.
