I went for a black/gray/red color scheme so most of my purchasing decisions were the result of that. The Maximus VIII Formula has a nice built in copper water channel that made the most sense in terms of tube routing than a Strix X99 with a monoblock. I chose the 6600K instead of the 6700K because of decreased power draw and thermals both at idle and at load. The difference was just too big to warrant the extra threads in my opinion. The 1600 Watt PSU is definitely overkill but I got it for $200 and it's titanium rated so I just couldn't pass that up. I can probably run the system at load and it would still be passive. The ram was chosen because it was solid black with no logos or lettering at the top of the sticks. It was surprisingly hard to find ones like that. The hard drives were leftover from another build and are still going strong and the GTX 1080s are overclocked to about 2150 Mhz and run at 40-42C at load.
Overall, it's been crazy building this computer but I love it and it should last years. It's virtually silent when idle and at load there's just some gentle fan noise. Temps are amazing and the components + case are beautiful to look at.
I hope you've liked this build! Let me know what you think.
