Description

Well... here it is. After building several part lists on this website, from changing minor parts to starting from scratch, I can finally say that my build has officially been completed (pre-water cooling loop). The name for this build is derived from the Direwolf "Ghost" on Game of Thrones.

The breakdown of PC Usage is as follows: 5% General Browsing 10% Gaming 15% Stock Market 15% Website Design 25% Programming 35% 3D Rendering

At the moment, current upgrades are a complete water cooling loop with new case fans, 2x M.2 SSDs, and maybe an additional 32GB of ram to fill up the four empty slots on the motherboard. May upgrade the monitor in the near future as well.

Nice. WHat size is that tv above your small computer monitor in the picture? I'm assuming you watch the charts on it. I like that setup. Is it 40inch?

Also, did you have any trouble with the corsair memory working with the motherboard and cpu okay?

Apologies for the late response, the TV is 40", quite useful for watching the charts indeed.

I haven't really had any issues with the compatibility of the corsair memory other than the height of the memory sticks. Due to the size of the CPU cooler, I was unable to place the memory in the correct channels: 1,3, 2,4. and therefore had to place them in 1,2, 3,4 in order to mount the cooler. The outside fan on the right side slightly pushes down on the memory in channel 3 on the right hand side. This issue will be fixed when I switch to water cooling later this year however.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks!

Does your ram run in quad channel mode?

Hey Blake, just wondering if it was a tight fit for your Zenith Extreme? Apparently fitting E-ATX in the P600s can be hard, just doing my first build so not if this is completely true or not. Cheers in advance

Apologies for the late response, id consider it a tight fit but had no issues. I emailed phantek before I purchased their case as well as I had the same question. I'd suggest you purchasing cablemod cables for cable routing though.

Thanks!

Looks awesome, question: i planning on building one allot like this, same processor, same video card but i plan on getting 2 of them for SLI and 64gigs of ram (probobly cheaper ram than what you have). This motherboard was first on the list of MB's but do it basically double the cost of the other available motherboards what does it have that the other MB's dont? I'm looking to build a powerhouse for CPU and GPU rendering as well creating some real time experiences in Unreal Engine. The only other thing i may add in the future is another 64 gigs of ram, do i need this mortherboard? Or will one of the cheaper ones suffice?

First off, thanks!

In response to your question in regards to the motherboard, I chose the zenith extreme alpha due to the VRM temperatures and overclocking abilities of the motherboard. It also had a bunch of other goodies such as the extra m.2 slots as well.
