Description

I built this machine exclusively for Gaming a little bit crazy, it can be used for much more that just this....

I already have the Phanteks Led Strips (as you can see) that will match the Asus Aura mobo colors (option with this mobo), replacing the Green Logysis Cathodes, that is why as you can see in the pictures I didn't even waste time placing it correctly. I will upload photos when it is done to show the difference...

I am in weelchair so dont blame me, there is difficult sometimes to get somebody to be carrying all this just because I want, so yes I know that I need to do something with that ugly Cathodes cables :)

Thanks

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing, I have so many things open without a problem....

Just check that you are receiving the correct one.... If you zoom in the photo in which all the parts are the front sticker of the Intel says i7-6800 even when I bought the I7-6900, at the end in the processor says the correct one, but well, check after open it

Motherboard

I don't see anything difference from other high end mobo, just the Asus Aura that looks amazing, also it has a special pin to connect a Led Strip that match your mobo style.

I don't know where the problem is, that my 950 Samsung is not delivering the full speed, I don't know if it is how the PCIE are configured in the mobo

Storage

The Rampage V edition 10 has and exclusive M2 port but when I tried to used the Samsung Magician to Optimize it, it says that the 950 Pro cannot be optimized as difference of my last 850 SSDs on my gaming laps, and the random read/write is not as advertised at all, any suggestion (see photos)? I don't know if I need to change something on the BIOS or what, expertise please LOL

Case

About the Phanteks Primoo case, it is good, amazing quality, solid as rock, and the blue LED that has in all one size outside the case looks amazing, but it is a little bit confusing with all the cables that it already has from the preinstalled fans, as a suggestion it will be good that these can be marked like the home theater cables.

That power supply was a massive waste of money unless you got it marked down quite a bit. This rig could run on 550W comfortably with no issues whatsoever. Good build, Just money could have been spent more wisely.

really really, I was just looking the Titanium certification plus if in the near future I want to add another Video Card and even that 1500 will be also too much, but planning to make a lot of things with it, there are plenty room in the case for water cooling let say that it is a future ready, I don't waste again in another supply because it wasn't enough :)

This is your build upgraded as much as I could. PCPartPicker says 968W. xD

Well I mean you've already bought it no going back. XD

Not even at all. Even if all that where less watts. Btw I like it more just because the box says titanium and not platinum or gold and I can pay for it :p

64Gb of RAM for gaming is so much, 16 is sufficient. I don't really understand your choice but have fun.

Really I didnt take care the expenses. But yes. It was too much. Hope that I can use it for many other things

Parts are way overkill for what you need however if you had money to blow, I can understand. Fix your cable management too because it is ruining the looks of your PC. Colour scheme is a bit weird (green LED but red and black parts? Definitely overkill and could have spent much less for the same amount of performance. Overall, get better cable management and get better pictures ( a build without proper photos ain't no completed build) 7/10

As I said in the description I will replace the green lights for the panteks strips tied to Asus aura. Also I said that it is the reason for not wasting time doing it. But thanks for your suggestion :)

not a problem, your suggestion is actually what I think, it is ugly, but well doing my best, I am in weelchair so sometimes it is difficult to find the time of somebody to be carrying all this s....t from one way to another just because I want LOL

I feel sorry for you. Having to use a wheelchair must be horrible. Wish you the best, and i'm happy that you have a dope gaming pc!

As stated by pretty much everyone else, with cable management this will look awesome.

However, even for an overkill computer I cant in any way see how to justify that processor just for gaming purposes. Get a 6700k which has a much higher base clock of 4Ghz and a second 1080 gtx would be better for gaming no?

At the end of the day though, it's your money and build, as long as you enjoy it :)

Based on their respective websites, the chassis' (Phanteks Primo) has 277mm GPU clearance with the reservoir bracket (w/o cover) is installed, while the GPU (MSI GTX 1080) is 279mm in length. Can you confirm that there is really just that 2 millimeter obstruction? No chance to actually fit those two together without modding?

Nice build btw (I'm also looking to get the Primo and the MSI 1080)!

I am in market for a new case and saw your build :)

Samsung Magician to Optimize it

I have read that Samsung Magician does not read M.2 drives correctly and you end up with random results. Check to see if you have a software update that will read the M.2 driver correctly.

Nice build. Ignore the comments that are jealous of your build :)

i know this sounds crazy but i kinda like the bad cable management with the pinkish leds with a hint of orange and blue(second pic).

You bought all the best parts, just because you could, you are the man.

Seems like you did enough research to build what you wanted. I love people who build for themselves. I also like how you future-proofed this rig with best efforts.

+1 For giving thanks to God for your ability to provide for you and your family.

also for the build. :)

The power supply is a much higher wattage than it needs to be. I'm running a computer with similar specs and I have a 850W power supply and even that is overkill. Cable management is crap in your PC you need to make sure to manage those cables

So much saltines in the comments if hes happy with his build and he has the budget to do it , sure why not, its his money . For the opt , now that you have had the Entho primo for a while is there any negatives ? I'm considering getting it this week for a Ryzen workstation build.

Seeing how much this cost, I'm guessing you'll be living off peanut butter toast and apples for the next year.
