I finally had the time to take some pictures!!! wheee.gif


Today's update is mostly focused on the hardware since I still have to order the watercooling components and the case is still under construction. So let's go!


Here's the center of gravity of this build! The gorgeous Gigabyte Z170X-SOC Force motherboard!





For those who wonder, yes I will be using the waterblock of the board. thumb.gif









The OC Touch section. I started using it a little bit but I need to work more on it.



The heart is a sweet Intel i7-6700K!




Next items on the list....The Special Edition Corsair RAM





Yep 3400MHz!!! In the Special Edition Orange, you don't have the choice of speed. But 3400MHZ doesn't hurt lolll






Here's the RAM installed on the board, as you can see the match is perfect!




Next, the GPU's! I ordered them separately because I had a deal somewhere but there was a "1 per customer" restriction. I ordered the other one a few days after at another place. So this is why you will see the bench setup below with only 1 GPU since the second GPU arrived yesterday.





Here's they are featured with the retention bracket called the "OC Brace" that Gigabyte is including with the motherboard. This brace is useful if you're on an open bench and want your expensive GPU's to have an extra level of secured installation.



Here's the GPU's installed on the board, Gigabyte awesomeness!




Next, the PSU. It was a close battle until the end between the EVGA Supernova 1200 P2 and the Seasonic Platinum SS-1200XP3. Both superb units with stellar reviews. At the end, the EVGA had a better deal.












Here's the current running setup like it has been for the last week or so. I did some tests and the system as also been folding 24/7 to test the components. As you can see I installed my new EK-XLC Predator 360 on my @Spotswood Bench! The unit didn't fit in the bottom compartment so I found a way to secure it lolll








I love this bench!




And we are done for today!


















Well almost


















I guess I can show you something else...fresh from a local anodizing shop. It's a close match (not perfect but close) to the Corsair RAM. The lighting on the pictures make them look more different than they really are.














Now i'm done biggrin.gif

I will continue to bench the components while I wait for the rest to come up. I will install the second GPU today and continue my run of test. So far the 980 Ti G1 Gaming is extremely good. Very nice stable overclock on air and the 6700K is not bad too. But I still need to push it further.

I will also remove the Bench PSU to install the EVGA and make sure it's working correctly.


Until then, take care guys!

Ahhh I've not been disappointed. biggrin.gif


Quick question for you about the motherboard block.

Do you know if its aluminum or is it plated in nickel or made of copper?

I agree with everyone, it's an awesome looking motherboard.
post #50 of 132
This motherboard is ugly - sorry Akira my sensitive sense of aesthetics be loaded. I do not know what's wrong with those mainboards, but referring to a very interesting orange predecessors, this motherboard is disappointing.

But memory and backplate look very very nice thumb.gif
