no budget. lower the better.
no peripherals required, have already.
Thanks for all the help guys!
I want to stick to intel if possible, with a 240 AIO and a M.2 SSD for super fast speeds
it is not.
Same question. for that price point, he could have got 2 reference ti's and they would perform better.
updated again, went with the 5960x over the 5930k
I don't really need the 8 cores, 6 will do me just fine. Plus I only went with the 5930k over the 5820k just for the 40 lanes over the 5820ks 28
i have 3 480's plus a 240 going in lol lots of fans
I also wouldnt mind adding another 980TI in down the road.
thats the plan!
whats wrong with the storage choice? i dont want mechanical drives or SATA drives. i want the speed. I will also be upgrading to the 1.2TB intel 750 in the summer.
im thinking about spending the extra 500 on the X, but i 'm not sure. I still have to save money for the 3x asus curved 1440p monitors when they are released
the fans are for the radiators plus to fill the extra open slots, i replaced the SATA with a M.2. i also plan on getting the 1.2tb PCIe intel drive later in the summer of 2016 when, hopefully, the price drops.
racing and flight sims, gaming, some small video work as a hobby. Looking forward to those open space games coming out this year hopefully :)
updated with a list of watercooling parts and changed out the SATA to a M.2
Thanks for all the advice. Keep ume coming!
I will be adding waterblocks to them. I have extra PETG tubing laying around from my last build so I do t have to buy the tubing it fittings, just the blocks. I never air cool my computers anymore for very long. Only for testing.
Ah I thought the s3 would fit at mATX, I'll have to swap that around to a s5
Thanks for the advice. As I have already purchased the CPU I will be sticking with the x99 platform. I have a 5k budget so I believe it's ok to splurge a little on parts that are overkill and for looks. I also do not want to leave any empty dim slots, for looks.

like it said in the description, it is a left over parts build. most of the parts were taken out of other computers to throw into this case
IT is a mATX case so yes, it does
I never used the stock fans on the case so I wouldn't know. But the overall noise isn't loud at all
Ek sells them. Not sure if they stopped making them or not.
Cable management is very good, if you only use SSD's you can remove the 3.5 drive bay and have a lot of extra room for it. even with the drive bay in you still have plenty of room.
Thanks! I'm trying to remove all red from the build. My last one was a red and black build so Im just reusing the motherboard and ram I'll be swapping it out eventually
Thermaltake sells the side panels with windows on them. I'm going to be buying one shortly
Yes when I get some time off work I shall do that!
I plan on upgrading the fans to noiseblocker a eventually
Mayhems yellow and blue dye mixed to make the green
yea. the motehrboard will be swapped out eventually to get rid of the red. im going to be throwing in the x99 mATX board from EVGA with the 5930k eventually
2 rads in it, an AC XT45 in front and the ST 30 at the back and thanks!
they are great! i love them.

because they never released one in the 870 ti form, only the 780.
no issues at all
nothing bad as of yet, i dont hear any noise coming from it at all
corsair makes great products and seeing as i was going with corsair everything else i decided to go with that PSU, i didnt go with the ax860i because i heard things about the link software being buggy so i just saved the money on the ax860.
as for the description, i was in a hurry as i uploaded it in the morning.
the top had a fill port in it
save for a while and it can be done :)
yes he did lol
i will also be taking that SLI bridge off and painting it to match the color scheme and going to try and mess around with the LED color
if your going to try, order more tubing then you think you will need, some of the bends are not easy
yes lol its not exactly what i wanted but if i went the route of getting what i wanted the motherboard would be covered from a 120 in the back and the 60mm in the front
they are on the pricey end but you pay for quality
yea i will eventually when its needed
thanks a lot! means a lot to me when people appreciate the work ive done
thanks! was my first attempt at rigid tubing
