Built this rig for work and play --- okay fine, I told myself it was for work but I could get by trading using a lot of cheaper alternatives. Heck I could trade using my laptop and a pair of ASUS MB169B's. Finding the perfect balance between a trading computer and a gaming monster, I ended up with what you see here. I call it by its name so that I'm reminded of its primary purpose. :)
The X34 is just a beautiful monitor! I used the 34UM58 as a previous main display but now it's standing on portrait mode with a VESA mount. I initially used a Zotac 1060 Amp Edition with the LG monitor but when I ascended into the X34 I had to get the 1080ti.
To complete this build, I used a sit-stand desk from a local retailer as well as an AK Racing gaming chair. Also using a big-*** Zowie mouse pad.
What can I say? Best enthusiast grade i7 at the moment. I've pushed it to around 4.7Ghz for kicks. Not really a fan of increasing the voltage too much on this thing as I have yet to find the need to push it into the 5GHz territory.
Really eye candy, this one. You can play around with so many light settings on the CAM software --- the problem here is that the software derps every so often and it fails to recognize the Kraken. In which case, you'll have to uninstall-reinstall the CAM software. Doing so wipes your lighting settings.
Great solid mobo here!
Great RGB RAM sticks that don't require any additional power. Buggy software still, and it's been a month since release of the beta and there have been no updates since. If you wish to control these sticks seamlessly at this point in time one must have an ASUS Aura compatible mobo.
Truly a beast and locally, Palit is the cheapest of the FE's available.
Beautiful monitor. Put a dent in my wallet but man, I just stare at it to forget how much I spent for it!
