What up all, figured I'd start the thread since the parts are starting to come in, it's nice to be back and I'll reimburse revise this OP with a glossary as it gets a little more intense =)



You can check out my first two 760ts in my sig for the build logs

Hey Jeron,

Good to have you back in the game. That's an impressive stack of hardware you've got for this build. I'm looking forward to watching this thing come together. Based on your previous builds, it should be another gorgeous example of your expertise!

thanks scott! im excited!

spoke to PPCS on the phone, all my 3 orders just got overnighted today! and got discounted! yessss

also fry's electronics just called and said that a monitor i preordered is there, the PG348Q 34" Ultra wide 1440p 100hz IPS G sync monitor,

although a issue im having right now is i previously also bought the ASUS PG279Q from frys, the person who helped me said i can go ahead and return my PG279Q monitor for the PG348Q, but what do you think?

Ultrawide 34" 1440P G sync VS 27" 1440p 165hz G sync monitor? i am using 2 GTX1080's to power the graphics... so hmm... anyones input would be great! especially yours scott!

Both are very good choices dude. I am a big fan of Asus monitors. All five computer monitors I own are Asus, so I'm completely happy with your brand choice. The primary differences (besides the size) seem to be aspect ratio, resolution, and of course, the curved screen. Also, the 27” actually has a better refresh rate (165 vs. 100 for the 34”), so if you plan on playing games or running apps that would benefit from extremely high refresh rates, the 27” may have some advantages. I’m not a big gamer, but I’ve got to believe that there aren’t too many games out there (not yet anyway) where you are going to need or notice the extra refresh rate, but that’s just a guess. The PG348Q is bigger, nicer looking, higher resolution, and newer technology. If you can afford the extra ~ $500 and don’t think you’ll need the higher refresh rate, I’d go with the PG348Q.

Some pics of my mess and the Uber large ppcs orders lol, decided to switch to 750D airflow edition obsidian case

also made some cables, and sleeved them, still been a semi hectic week

also converted my pumps molex just into the modular 6 pin cable for my AX860i so i can forego the whole molex adapter what not

Oh my god Dude, that is another sweet build! I'm sorry that I wasn't paying attention for a while. I've been preoccupied with my new job and a few other concerns. I'm gearing up for another build myself, but have been having troubles getting my M.2 PCIe NVMe drives set up in RAID. Gigabyte tech support believes I may have a bad set of drives. I have a set of Samsung SM951 AHCI M.2 drives that seem to be working well though. I will probably put the build together with them and swap them out with a pair of NVMe drives once I figure out how to make them work. biggrin.gif I don't know if I'll get a chance to post any pics here, but I will throw a few up on my Facebook page if you want to stop by for a look.
