I built this mainly for trading but also some gaming on the side. I didn't intend to go all out with this at first but I was so impressed with some of the other builds on here I kind of went a little overboard but I don't regret any of it. This PC is a beast and I couldn't have done it without this site. You guys are just amazing and extremely helpful.
I successfully overclocked it to 5.0ghz using the one click setting in the EasyTune app from Gigabyte. I may mess with the manual settings to see how far I can push it but for now this is stable and my CPU temps never get above 79C unless I have too many charts up in my trading platform. The highest I've seen was at 80C but the 9 fans kick in at 79C at full speed and temps drop almost immediately. VRAM has never been above 43C as far as I'm aware (I have an alert set at 42C and it's only gone off 2 or 3 times). RAM is running at the advertised specs of 3200mhz after setting the XMP in the bios but I have not tried overclocking it yet. I did try my hand at overclocking the GPU but I ran into some stability issues so I kinda gave up for now but I'll probably mess with it again in the future. It seems to be maxing out at 1515mhz currently and is very stable and temps remain under 40C even under load.
Games run smooth even with NVDA Surround on all 3 monitors and just looks incredible at 144hz, although AMD's Eyefinity was so much easier to set up on my old PC. Now there's just too many clicks involved just to get surround turned on. Then I have to do the same steps in reverse to disable it. Just a real PITA compared to what I'm used to.
The hardest part of this build was getting all the wires to fit so I could install the back panel. It was a pain but in the end I managed to make it happen. I also ran out of fan ports and internal USB ports on my MB so I had to get an internal USB hub and a fan splitter so that just added to the mess of wires I had to manage lol.
I will be adding more pictures soon.
