Like what you did with the Front Dust Filter Mod..

Just did a build in the 780T for my Son and didn't have any of the issues you had with the Motherboard standoffs or PCIE Brackets. Think you might have just had a run of bad luck there.

Love your build over all, I like to see when someone goes all out and doesn't skimp on anything..

Those ML Fans are a thing of beauty. I hope to deck my 760T out in them come Christmas Time....

How do you like those Logitech Speakers and Headset ?

:) Thanks, I saw it done by a couple of people on here, and thought of doing it myself.

Good to know about the 780T, mine must've been affected by the cold Canadian weather!

ML Fans are amazing, whisper quiet (makes my GPU coil whine seem louder than it should be!), and looks sweet.

Speakers and headset are amazing, I had to RMA the headset once because the right side stopped working after about a year of use (I brought it over from a previous build), Logitech support was amazing, and they sent me a new one. I personally prefer it to their new G933.

Cheers :)

Where to start :) ! Well first off not a fan of red builds but love this one +1 for that!

Love the clean look inside and out side of the PC really good job there, Cable management is on point!

I'm looking to build a 980ti SLI green/black but looking at this makes me feel jealous :P !

Good job on this build hope you get featured because this build has 1 a lot of photos 2 Clean AF and 3 Just plain sexy!!! Props for that!

Thanks for the kind words :D

I was considering other colors for the build but some parts that I watned did not have other color options than red / black (The Vengeance LED RAM for one, the monitor stand etc.)

I think if you're willing to mod or choose a few different components, you can get away with some pretty sick looking builds!

GL with your build! (I keep reading rumors about a 1080ti Jan 2017, might want to read more up on that too!)

Yeah i have heard the rumours on the 1080ti i im on a 1k 500 - 2k Budget and 2 1080ti's would be very cost efficient!

The two 980ti's are still very good for gaming on!

The colours are also hard to use room as there is mainly red black and some white but if i want a certain a colour i will custom paint it green to fit it in my build!

Very nice!

I just recently built a very similar computer. i7700K, Asus Maximus IX Hero, Asus GTX 1080 OC Strix edition, Corsair 32GB Vengeance red LED, H115i AIO cooler, Corsair 780T white case.

I kind of had the same problem with the motherboard standoff as well! I had to really push the motherboard against the I/O backplate to make the standoff and screws align and go in straight. It wasn't massively off but it shouldn't have been as slightly difficult as it was (was expecting it to just line up perfectly straight). I also had a bit of alignment issue with my PSU, same as yours actually (EVGA P2 850W) - the screw holes to line up the PSU with the case wasn't all straight and actually I had to leave out one screw cause it wasn't aligned straight after all the others were in. I put it down to the Corsair 780T case isn't perfectly made - whilst it is a very good case, certain details are quite flimsy, like the way the different parts of the case don't perfectly seal together. However, having said that, once it was built and running, there are no vibrations or noise and it's very cool and quiet.

I also bought 2 Corsair ML140mm fans to put onto my H115i AIO cooler radiator - these were actually a very tight fit onto the radiator and as I put the screws in, it made at least one screw on the corner of the fans out of place/alignment with the radiator. The rubber corners on the ML140mm make them very bulky so fitting them on was tight. After having read your comment about the minimum RPM for these and checking the Corsair website again, I made sure mine ran at 400 RPM minimum (they've been automatically set to run around 270RPM by my Asus motherboard software, though there's been no problems at all).

One thing I wanted to ask was about your CableMod WideBeam Magnetic strips - I wanted to get some myself but wasn't sure if I should get the magnetic ones or the adhesive ones for my case. Did the magnetic strips work fine with the Corsair 780T? I thought a lot of the case was plastic. Where did you place the magnetic led strips in your case?

Hi, sorry i didnt see this message till just now. PCParkPicker doesnt send notifications through email it seems :D

If I'm not too late to answer, I got the magnetic ones and attached them inside the case. I used up about 3.5 of them to go all around.

Cheers. :)

Oh man you're right, PCParkPicker does not send notifications through email! I had the same with my own build page. Thanks for replying though!

Good to hear the magnetic ones work well with the Corsair 780T. You said you used 3.5 of them to go all around and looking at your build list, you bought the 60cm ones - I thought 60cm was enough to go around half the case! I was only planning to buy 2 of the 60cm ones.

Did you even have enough RGB headers on your motherboard to use that many strips?!

I just took a tape measure to double check - i actually used about 2.5 strips inside the case :D my mistake, sorry! A little more than 2.5 actually. 60 + 60 + 40 to go all around.

Honestly, I think that 2 will be good enough, try it out with them first - buy an extra if you're unhappy :D

I actually keep the strips off now because a lot of the components have LEDs on them, and they look really nice without having the strips overpowering their glow :P

My mobo has 2 RBG headers, but i utilize only 1 as all the strips are connected to each other, so no issues there.

Hey! Thanks for your reply!

Yeah I think 2x60cm strips should be enough!

Interesting about the strips being off since you want the components to glow more without the strips overpowering their glow. The only glow I have inside my compute right now are my GPU, a bit of the motherboard and my memory kit. Maybe I'll think twice before buying the strips.
