Aye what's good y'all? I've been monitoring this thread for at least the last 2 weeks now, lurking in the shadows while you guys have unknowingly been keeping me up to date with all the info pertaining to this motherboard. At this point I feel like I know you guys well, from the bs we've been constantly fed from NCIX & ASUS to them bannin' my man Skupples from that ASUS forum for frivolous reasons. They were bogus af bro lol. Anyways, I'm a musician and a gamer puttin' together my own little beast machine. I have most of my parts except a couple things such as the motherboard. I put in my pre-order on NewEgg a couple days after you guys first announced it on here. I've been patiently waitin' like the rest of you for this awesome motherboard and I CAN'T STAND IT!!!
Here's a look at my setup as it currently stands:
- White NZXT Phantom Case
- Corsair H60 Water Supply
- 1275 W. Thermaltake Power Supply
- ASUS GTX 770 GPU (I'm mad as hell I bought this for $420 + Warranty & Free copy of Batman, and then Newegg goes and drops the price significantly only 3 mths later to $350 + THREE free games; ***?!)
- Intel 4930K Processor
- Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB SSD
-Tt eSPORTS Level 10M Gaming Mouse (Black)
- Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard (Silver)
- KRK Rokit 5 Studio Monitors
- Cyberpower CP1500PFCLCD Sinewave UPS
At this point, all I need now (I think) is the memory and I want a new monitor setup. I was thinkin' about gettin' some G. Skill 4x8 2666's and a 24/27in. monitor wit' 3D capabilities. I just wanted some feedback from you guys as to whether or not this was a good idea and if there were other, if any, better alternatives, in addition to any further advice you guys may have. Thanks for you guys' input in advance and I'm sorry for typin' so much lol.
As a sidenote, it's been a while since I last built a comp (early 2000s). I had no idea that overclocking and watercooling were such big things until recently. I'm interested in gettin' into those but as a somewhat noob I'm a little overwhelmed with those things. I know there are tutorials on youtube and whatnot but idk. Maybe one of these days I'll experiment with it but for now I just wanna game and make some awesome hip-hop tunes hahaha
