8700k [delid] @ 5.0 1.36v 24/7 stability
Asrock Extreme 4 motherboard.
Kraken 62/Super Luce DDR4 3000 Cas 15 @ 3200 Cas 15
EVGA 1080ti FTW3 [stock]
QNIX 27 1440 panel overclocked from 60 to 110hz
Custom mod NZXT 440 "Look at the top of the case" :) I added "air-intake" with modders mesh to improve cooling.

My temps never exceed 81c during P95 torture runs {1hr} and gaming at max settings never exceed {70c}.

Bios settings are the usual...pm me and I will send them to you if you are curious or have the same setup. No auto-settings here...Core voltage 1.36 Fixed/LLC Level 1/Power Limits maxed!

Hi. I built this: 8700K 5.2 GHz at 1.425v, binned/relidded from SL, Maximus X Hero, Noctua U14S double-fan, EVGA 1080ti FTW3, like you, GSkill 4266 C19 ram, Samsung SM961 500Gb, 1 TB spinner, Seasonic 850 Titanium, in a Rosewill GungfirX. Acer 4K 32". Haven't stress tested it for long periods, but using it every day at 5.2 AVX 2, no problems. Mem would never post faster than 4000 tho, seems to be par for the course. The FTW is cranked up about 50 on core speed and about 400 on mem speed. This is my first OC build, after fooling with an Alienware Aurora for awhile, and I'm happy. Now building a i9-7940x on an EVGA Dark mb to test/compare it as a video editor. It will clearly best a Threadripper 1950x.

I was reading user reports on power supplies, and their reliability worried me, especially some disaster stories, so I switched to Seasonic. For the same reason, I decided on good air coolers instead of liquid, and selecting mb's with strong VRM's/cooling.
