    This build all started when i was looking for a monitor and came across the ASUS ROG PG348Q for sale on ebay discounted at 20%, it was the start of it all.

    My current rig is:

    cpu: i7 920 @4GHz
    motherboard: EVGA x58 Classified
    GPU: GTX 970 upgraded to a GTX1080 FE EVGA
    RAM: G.skill trident 3x2GB
    180GB Intel 550? SSD
    Asus Xonar D2X sound card
    1000 watt antec psu (bronze)
    Corsair 800D case, custom waterloop for CPU only
    2xSamsung 245b 24 inch monitors


    Basically replacing everything with the following (currently being shipped):

    cpu: i7 6700k
    motherboard: MSI z170 M9
    GPU: going for GTX1080 FE EVGA SLI
    RAM: 2x8GB G.Skill Trident Z 3600MHz CL16
    Samsung 950 pro m.2 512GB
    Triong 150 480GB ssd
    (have a server so dont need any more space in this rig)
    gonna switch up to a gold rated PSU

    All custom watercooled in a Silver in-win909 using hardline tubing
    Going to be using barrow fittings purchased from aliexpress
    14mm PETG tubing from barrows as well
    360mm and 240mm Rad
    EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM Pump
    some random reservoir that i'll be taking from my current rig
    Thinking i may go a little nuts on LED fans (possibly the HD120/SP120s that are due out soon or ML120 Pros) - feel free to lay into me for this

    Using a Steel series M800 apex keyboard
    Razer abyss mouse
    ASUS ROG PG348Q 34inch Ultrawide G-Sync 100Hz Monitor
    some JBL bookshelves

    And thats it for the moment
    will have pics when stuff come in

    yeah it looks so clean, was about to purchase it but waited a day. next thing i know, it was sold out almost everywhere so went with PLE and got it for backorder.
    Wouldve liked a little bit more room though but will make due with removing the Hard drive cage to put my reservoir up there haha.
    Is your rig watercooled? would like to see how you set it up

    Nah its not water cooled but I did remove the HDD cage. Its easily drilled out as its held in by pop rivets.

    Just a note. The case is bloody heavy man. It'll be easily 25kg once you're done with your build.

    Yep have had plenty of warning about the weight haha, I currently have the 800D so it shouldnt that far off (This is why i gym). And yeah thats a shame they decided to rivet the HDD cage.

    My monitor has come in, funny thing is I had one which i sent back because it had 1 dead pixel and no one would or should accept that kind of quality from a monitor costing over 1.6k. I sent the item and called up Futu 2 weeks later to see the progress of my RMA claim, but they told me the parcel hasnt arrived so launched an enquiry with auspost. Few days later, discovered the parcel was lost, which was pretty ridiculous considering the size of this box. Anyways called Futu and they sent me a brand new one.

    update:
    changed my mind with skylake and decided to go for the i7 6850k with the MSI x99 GODLIKE carbon.
    briefly thought about the asus rampage V edition 10 but it has a drive bay dac? or some sort and the in-win 909 has nothing to help with that.
    with that change, i decided to go a black and white build so got some matte black fittings and am planning to use white pastel.

    Hey did you finish your build with the inwin in the end?

    I've got my WC parts and will commence building soon but struggling to workout where to put the D5 pump (I went a separate pump res combo as well)...
