1x 480GB SSD as boot.

1x 480GB SSD for downloads and game storage.

1x 512GB SSD for game storage.

4 dimms of ram to take advantage of X99 quad channel. I have not been able to get XMP mode working with this board (fails memtest when enabled).

5x Corsair ML140 Pro (1 Exhaust at rear, 4 Intake at front on rad in push pull to maintain positive pressure). Connected to Corsair Commander Pro along with RGB strips, USB connections from H115i and RM750i go to Commander Pro as well.

6800K has a modest overclock to 4GHz at 1.25 volts, the Corsair H115i has no trouble keeping it cool. It idles around 30C versus around 40C on the previous Noctua D15.

GTX 1080 is running in OC mode via MSI Gaming App.

MSI piston bolster keeps the GPU in place while moving the rig to LANs with friends.

Using Corsair individually sleeved cable kit to replace the hard to work with flat cables that come with the RM750i.

I got a similar build. Love the noctua fans.

What kinda idle/load temps do you get with the fan? (ambient temps too please)

Pretty good, doesn't get over around 65C under load.

Are you actually running that ram at 3200?

Defiant submitter 3 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Yes I am, I have XMP turned on in the BIOS.
