I wanted to build a gaming PC that I knew would last for a few years. I had this parts list saved for a couple months until Nvidia finally stocked some of their 1080 Ti's. I snatched one up and decided it was time to start ordering the parts and get to building. I went with the Core i7 8700 and opted out of the 8700K just because I don't think I'm ready for overclocking yet and figured with the parts I have I shouldn't even worry about the 1 or 2 extra frames. Even GTA V runs at about 60-100 FPS on this build so I don't think I'll be over clocking any time soon.
Keep in mind this was my first PC build but with enough research and forum discussion I only ran into two problems. Fortunately they were pretty simple fixes.
First was the case fan and LED circuit board that's installed onto the Enthoo Luxe case. What threw me off was the cable that needed to be plugged into the CPU_FAN socket. That threw me for a loop since now I didn't know where the CPU cooler needed to plug into. after some more research I found out the CPU_OPI located right next to the CPU_FAN pins was regulated by the CPU temp so that was where I hooked it up. Problem solved.
Second was the WD Black Series 3TB Hard drive disk. For some reason my computer wasn't registering it even though the motherboard showed it in BIOS. This was a harder solution to find but once I did I saw that it was also a simple fix. I just needed to assign the drive a letter in Disk Manager.
Anyway I will update this with more of the temps and clock rates when I get the chance.
