I tried several different cases before I decided on the Phanteks Evolv ATX TG and it is the best case I have ever built in. I was tempted to go with liquid cooling but the Noctua D15 is a beast and performs so well that I found no need to go with liquid. This build is all about 1440p 144hz gaming and it turned out really well. I am not a fan (no fun intended) of the Noctua color scheme but it is hard to beat their quality when it comes to cooling. This build is one of the most silent high end builds I have ever put together. I was originally going to go with a GTX 1070 but with the current prices I decided to go all in and get a GTX 1080 Ti. I have been playing Ghost Recon: Wildlands and I am glad I went with the 1080 Ti because I average 65 fps on 1440p Ultra settings. With my gsync monitor everything looks great but this shows that Wildlands is not very well optimized and that it is very graphically demanding. I had no real issues with this build but I was a little annoyed with the placement of the front USB 3.0 connection on this motherboard. Cable management was a breeze in this case.
hard to beat right now for gaming. I want to try a Ryzen build but with gaming as my main focus the 7700K is still the CPU to beat (for now). I was able to get it for $289.99
This thing is a BEAST and does not fit too many cases but it out performs many AIO coolers. I don't love the colors but Noctua is all about quality and low noise so I went "function over form" on this
Decent Z270 board. I got a great deal on it so I can't complain however I do prefer the Aorus boards
amazing GPU, usually silent and runs cool
In my opinion this is the best case on the market right now. Not only does it look amazing but it screams quality
