Description

Used pc part picker but got someone else to build as new to this, CPU: I7 6700 k as Have got to 4.5 easily, CPU Cooler: Looks great and you can change colour scheme, Mobo: I just wanted as potential for future, RAM: Like my ram and Samsung magician uses it, GPU: GT1080 FE Could not help myself as new things appeal to me, Case: Really love this and plenty of airflow in case, PSU: Want to add another gtx 1080 down track so more power, Screens: love them but I could not afford 4k as too much at moment, Mouse: I love and only thing left is a key board ,

Any comments welcome good or bad as my first build ever Mostly for work so no need to pick on amount of ram as software I use needs it,

Total so far is 6 k from a Perth based company.

Cheers

Yep can build things but on bigger scale, have changed parts on a pc before but was not confident starting from scratch,

I was excited to see this build because I am building an almost identical rig. I'm a first-timer so worried. I'm waiting a few weeks on the 1080 cards to emerge more. I'm going with the 760 or 780 case. Why did you pick the 760 vs 780? I am also trying to decide if I need extra fans beyond the three on the case. It seems like everyone adds fans to these full size towers. Is it necessary or do people just do it because they can? You did not.
I'm also getting a 5TB HDD instead of your 1TB SSD, but I'm a photographer and have lots of in-case storage needs. I may go to an external Raid someday.

Glad you like it, better to wait as they will become cheaper but I liked the sleek look of founders edition over one with fans, 760 just appealed to me and has plenty of room for airflow which is why no extra fans but it does look a bit barren in there, I will probably add a hdd down the track but the 1 tb ssd uses my ram via samsungs magician software and is super fast,

Cheers for comment,

Thanks. I was tempted to go mid-tower but I have plenty of space on the floor next to my desk so why not go big? But yes, there will be plenty of empty space. I'm sure with the water cooler and stock case fans that I don't need to add fans. But maybe I will. I still don't understand the real difference between the 760 or 780..... There are a lot of builds using both.
I will add SSDs as main storage as they get bigger and cheaper over the next two years. For now, I'm going to boot off of that big Samsung M.2 SSD and then store my images on a 5TB HDD. I've decided not to go RAID (probably should). I will just back up a lot to external drives. Maybe I should back up to another internal HDD.... Planty of room. But then I might as well go RAID.....

I did want a g sync monitor with higher MHz as well but for price I was happy with this one as it has had IPS & looks good but I am still waiting for them to arrive :-( hopefully today or tomorrow.

did a pc performance bench mark test with cpu stock then 4.4mhz & got some nice results, the magician (rapid mode) software on 2nd time around on the 1tb 850 pro SSD but was not allowed to upload results as it was using ram to help it along, photos of results with rapid on and off but will take with a grain of salt as Samsung test

love these hard drives :-)

i am fairly new to SSD as 4 years ago when i last pciked an off the shelf PC so can only say the M.2 one is super fast already & i use the rapid on the 2nd SSD !tb 850 pro so data transfer between the 2 is very quick, i have heard they are even quicker when used in RAID link below http://www.overclock.net/t/1500862/1-single-ssd-vs-2-ssd-raid-0

I know it's an old post, but I just built a similar build with a 6700k H100i v2 and Z170 Fatal1ty i7 and i'm having some temp/pump control issues. Can I ask what settings you used in the bios for fan control?
