I was aiming for an Skylake based SLI enabled build before moving on to X99. Build is for gaming purpose with light editing stuff. Nothing much. But I wanted to have a beast of a build hence why. Many components like PSU, keyboard, mouse, monitor, one SSD are from the previous build.
I am a Formula lover hence Maximus VIII Formula was an obvious choice for me. i7 6700k is the CPU. For RAMs, I ditched the G.Skill TridentZ for Corsair Vengeance Red LED and I could not be more happier.
Using old Samsung 840 EVO 250GB for OS and 1TB SSD for Games. For other stuff, WD 6TB Black would do me good.
Being a EVGA lover, my obvious choice was GTX 1080 FTW though it took me like 2 months to get them. Unfortunately, temps under SLI are too high to my reckoning. Top card easily reaches 90C while the second card hovers to 82C. Mind you, I live in a hooter and humid area where during summers temp peaks at 49C. My room does not have air conditioning.
Next upgrade would be monitor. Aiming and trying for Asus PG348Q. At the moment using VX24AH which is 2k IPS panel. Nothing much here.
Chassis is Phanteks Evolv ATX. Lighting solution is NZXT Hue+.
I had mounted the rad on the front to have the clear view of Board and RAMs. Later on mounted it on top side and install two NF-A14 iPPC fans hoping to have a direct flow on the cards to reduce the temps but to no effect.
Also, hid the AIO cables though these are older pics without AIO's cable management.
