Hello everyone! I am posting my very first build log thread. I was able to take advantage of the Intel Retail Edge program and I ordered the new i7 5930K, so X99 here I come. This is my first build since 2011 and I'm pretty excited to step up.

I will be using the new build for gaming, twitch streaming, light content creation, and music production for my band.

Once I receive the CPU I will be doing a step by step update, but until then I will list my build list.

Absolutely! I plan on doing quite a few benchmarks once I get this baby built.

I hear that is a great MoBo! I was going to go Gigabyte for this X99 build, but they are having major BIOS issues. I play a mix of Melodeath/Metalcore kinda like Killswitch Enagae meets In Flames haha.

UPDATE! I went ahead and installed all of my fans and storage drives just to get them out of the way. I'll hopefully have the rest of the parts by the first or second week of February to get it done.

620€...go ahead...thumb.gif

I heard that Swiftech H240-X should be better than H100(i)/110. Few days ago I finally decided to buy one H110 for my i7-3820 but than I read different threads about the H240-X and saw few benchmarks comparing temps between different CPU´s and guess what^^....H240-X was better so maybe you won´t buy H100 for your rig....? biggrin.gif
