New Build help me fill in the blanks

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
It's that time again, Last build was 2014 and I am due for some updating. So far I have chosen the main components and looking for some suggestions on the rest. The hardest decision for me is always the case... I will be doing a Mid Tower and I prefer a lot of 3.5" bays. Minimum would be 4 bays but 6 would be better... Here is my list so far and the GPU and CPU have already been ordered, just need to fill in the blanks.

CPU: Intel I5 7600k

GPU: Asus GTX 1080 Strix

MOBO: Asus ROG Z270E Strix

RAM: Kingston Hyper X Fury 16GB

PSU: EVGA G3 750w

CASE: Phanteks Evolve Enthoo ATX TG

COOLER:

SSD:

What is your current build?

An SSD, even if it's just a boot drive, will change your life.

I5 is already ordered. Not much need for Hyper threading since games dont really make use of it.
