So This started back in Dec of 2015 on updating my rig.
Started with the OCZ ssds, Case and GTX970 Video card. Then went to the 6600k, z170 board, the 980ti and the m.2. Was happy with that. but when the new Broadwell E cpus dropped. I just had to have one. So I sold the 6600k, the Mobo and the 16gb of ram. To now the Current set up of this. Which to me is now one of the most bad *** setups. It has cost me alot of money but I am very happy with the end result. (which is never over... I will be upgrading to 4k monitors and when the titan xp comes out that will be the next major upgrade and I will be adding it to the loop.)
So the way I have this pc set up is that I have the Samsung 950 pro nVme drive running my os and esental programs which Avgs about 1.7GBps read and and 1GBps of write, The OCZ Trion 100s are set up in a RAID 0 for 500gb of storage and Basically house my games. They avg somewhere around 800MBps read and 600MBs write and the the 2 2tb WD blacks for backup and storage. The custom loop took me about 8 hours to build. (First time doing it) but I am quite happy with the result.
Long short if it. I love doing this and I love buying new PC parts. Even though my wife makes me sell the old ones. Its Always fun.
Update. Picked up a Samsung UHD28 4k monitor. Loving it I am running most games in 4k around 40 to 60 fps.
Bad *** CPU. I got mine all the way to 4.5 ghz at 1.43 volts on a Custom Loop. Highly Recommended if you are not planning on running SLI at x16 on both lanes.
Great board in the price range. The LED is awesome and lots of room for upgrading and additional hard drives.
My main complaint for this board is if you are not running a cpu with 40 lanes you can't use the u.2. and if you are running sli you are limited to x16 on card 1 and x8 on card 2.
Running them for about 9-10 months now with no issues in RAID 0. I in the beginning I was running my os on it. But I upgraded to the 950 pro. So i know use this raid set up for my programs. In raid 0 Im getting about 1gb read and 800mbs write. So they are doing what they say.
SPEEEEEEEEEED. This thing is FAST! Defiantly worth the price.
