    I really like the look of the version with the tempered glass side, but I don't really want tempered glass on the back too .... I'd rather hide the cables behind the motherboard tray, not have them on show.

    Looks good, similar to what I'm wanting to build.

    What's the reason you went with the GTX980ti?

    Weighing up between a Xeon or i7 Broadwell-E build atm

    I currently wanting to shift from 4 cores to 8 cores :upset:

    The i7 6900k is very tempting but so is the E5-2630 v3 & Intel Xeon E5-1650 v3 :wired:

    The V3s are Haswell-E rather than Broadwell-E. But if you could get them at at good price they aren't much slower :D

    Started ordering parts :) Thanks for all ya'll feedback from a few pages ago.

    i7 6850K
    Asus X99 Deluxe II
    32GB Trident Z 3200Mhz
    512GB Samsung 950 Pro

    Going to migrate back to the Corsair 750D. Planning a black and white build.

    Not sure what PSU. Was thinking the HX850i, wish it was white rather than blue. I hear the RM850i is a better PSU, lower efficiency but better ripple levels? Basically same components. Not sure what way to go but, anyone have any thoughts?

    Wish the trident z sticks had a white highlight rather than red too, oh well.

    Upgrading the custom loop as well with an EK Supremacy Evo and EK tubing, anyone have any experience with the EK tubing? I kinda like the matte blackness of it, rather than the kind of shiny black primochill stuff. Going to reuse the XSPC bayres but mod it with the 750D covers to stealth it. Can't decide what radiator configuration to go, have 60mm thick 240/360mm rads and a 30mm thick 280. Probably 280 in the front and 360 in the top? Problem with the 360 is it doesn't really fit that well in the 750D, and it's quite beat up :(

    Edit: Also, 10K posts! :D

    We're spoilt for choice. Haven't had much experience with Xeon. Lower Clock makes me second guess them

    Leaning towards the 6900k

    Just gotta work out how to smuggle it into the country :Pirate:

    I would probably give both those sets a miss.

    The timings or the volts are too high.

    I went with the Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400 C12 32GB instead.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...gclid=CPWv2c7rss0CFRYIvAodBEcCAg&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Timings 12 14 14 28 at 1.2 volts. 4 x 8Gb. Supposedly for X99.
    Got mine from Amazon.

    Decided to put a water block on my 1080 so went back to using my Caselabs S8. I have 2 x HWlabs nemesis gtx 360 rads in p/p.

    Was up till early this morning and reran Realbench stress test for a 1/2 hr. Ambient temps were very low and setup was close to an open back door.

    Temp readings in core temp match A64
    Don't know how accurate sensors are

    Yea i saw that, but couldn't find it for sale anywhere. The kit I ended up getting was a good deal anyways. I went for the 3200mhz kit with 16-16-16-36 timings (gtz). Technically it's not on the qvl for the board, and looks like it has an xmp profile for z170 rather than x99, but i figure it would be the same as the x99 kit (gtzb), which just has a different xmp profile for looser timings (16-18-18-38). Should be fine.

    PSU choice is doing my head in though haha.

    I too can't decide what ram I need, its the only thing holding me back on purchasing. 6900k on a Asus Deluxe 2 overlocked to around 4.2-4.4 if it gets that high. I don't know if I should be getting 3200 ram or if 2666 is fine.

    I know with x99 ram higher than 2666mhz generally pushes your BCLK up from 100Mhz to 125Mhz, that mean you have to lower your core/uni clocks to compensate.

    Uh.. really?

    I am up and running on my 6850k with the Trident Z 3200mhz quad channel 32gb pack on XMP timings.

    Using the ROG stress testing tool over 30 minutes my timings stayed at 100mhz (well 99,98) for a 40 multiplier thanks to Turboboost Superultramax. My Strix decides to give it 1.327v on auto. (I will go through settings later) DRAM frequency was 1599.7Mhz; NB frequencey 3099.3 Mhz. FSB : DRAM 1:24.

    I am very impressed by the build, although getting the 950 (the only storage device) recognized was a pain. I will post some pics later in the week. :)

    What? That's not true. Unless your mobo doesn't support the necessary ratios to run the RAM at its max speed.
