Recently bought a Corsair STRAFE RGB Cherry Brown and I like it, but I don't own the other three keyboards so I can't compare.
I wonder if anyone here actually have owned and used all four keyboards to give you a clear comparison at all? I doubt it.
A+ for planning and effort.
Price is high compared to Corsair brand keyboards. Is ASUS charging extra due to its ROG name again?
I don't quite get this, please explain to me why is this considered a featured build?
You can always buy a separate, higher quality and soft comfortable wrist rest if you are really so keen on one.
OK, this is one unique looking PC.
What currency are you using? Alien dollar? :p
Yikes, this is a PC equivalent of a contortionist box O.o
Not set my heart on any brand at this stage.
What about Cherry Brown models from Corsair? I am looking at one for both gaming and typing. So many mechanical keyboards out on the market , hard to compare their quality. Don't really need RGB lighting, like a wrist rest pad, and don't want to spend too much on one.
Where do you live? Any link to show that price?
Wow. Must be gold plated keyboard.
$1000 for a keyboard? Is that in Japanese Yen? :p
Don't know, I don't own either G-sync or Freesync monitor. So does it mean G-sync is redundant and not needed in monitor?
Can you utilize the 144Hz in the monitor as you are running a nVidia GTX 1070 card? With only Freesync, without G-sync, do you experience screen tearing?
Huh over 150 upvotes for a system using an old Apple Power Mac case??!!
Does this mean the ultimate dream PC for us all is an Apple Mac computer?? :p
I will IF I have the spare money...
Not too concerned about the upside down video card sticker, but feeling sad a GTX 1070 is wasted on a 21.5" 1080p monitor :-(
Or he could have misread the total price as $1294.90 XD
Hehe, when you said budget build, you mean a very serious budget right?
Interesting you said that. I just finished my new build a month ago (i7-6700K). I chose the Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3000MHz RAM, which I can easily overclock from default 2133MHz to 3000MHz. How much gain do I get from it, I don't really know. Just like how much gain will I get if I overclock the i7-6700K from 4.0GHz to 4.2GHZ, may be just very little. But we all get the K CPU for a reason right?
Also not sure the price difference in your country, but in my local Sydney shop here, the $125 3000MHz RAM I have is only $10 more than the Corsair $115 2400MHz RAM. Wildly expensive? I don't think so.
Sorry I can't really help you much in this question. I don't even know there is this Z170 Deluxe MB exist. The Z170 Pro Gaming is using the SupremeFX 8-channel HD chip but I am only listening with a Turtle Beach PX21 headphone so probably not the best audio device to test the sound quality.
Orange is the new Black. Nice.
I am guessing if you want to maintain your 1440p at 144Hz, then you have to prepare to lower the graphics setting down to Medium for newer games in the future. If want to be sure you can play on High to Max setting, buy a GTX 1080 video card.
May be should have listed it as $319. $75 may get some people excited for wrong reason :p
I also see you listed the PSU as EVGA 650W, but the pic is showing 850W.
No worry. Take your time. I am just curious that's all as to the difference between pairing a GTX 1080 card with a 144Hz monitor with G-sync compared to a 144Hz monitor without G-sync. Cheers.
Since you are running the Freesync monitor with a GTX 1080, I wonder what frame rate you can sustain in your games? Any video tearing?
The case is so open. Will it be a dust magnet?
Did you change the stock fans on the Corsair H115i cooler to two of those Thermaltake LED fans?
May be he took those photos with a GoPro in wide field of view setting?
I have the Define R5 Blackout Edition with Window. The stock fans are black, so I added a third black version GP14 fan to the front. I connect all three case fans to the Asus motherboard case fan connectors and FanXpert can alter the fan speed according to the temperature. The case is so silent I have to keep looking down on its power LED button to be sure it is switched on :p
No worry. I only mentioned that higher RAM speed because you described you want to go "overkill", so other than more RAM I thought you should also go faster speed too.
Nice bright interior, you won't need to switch on the room light with this PC on :)
Anyway, I am not sure i7-6700K is the most powerful CPU available at the moment. And I wonder why you chose that 2400MHz G.Skill RAM? Won't they limit your overclocking ability? I think people normally pick at least 3000MHz RAM to maximise overcloacking.
Agree. I would personally save money on motherboard, RAM and power supply. But as you have named it Overkill, so be it.
Hehe, at first I thought that white Robo is a sewing machine :p
Anyway great mod to alter the angle of the video card and lots of blink factor.
In Australia, you can only buy from one shop - PCCaseGear, even then some models are often out of stock. That's just not good enough :(
Sorry I don't quite understand your question. What drivers do you mean? Motherboard driver? Video card driver?
Only last one year? Ouch. I hope your next build last much longer.
May be it is because of the country and where you are buying PC components from. For me in Sydney - Australia, the general prices of air coolers are significantly cheaper than water coolers at my local stores.
Yes, eventually I will want to OC it, just not at the moment.
