My big white

2 years of saving up has lead me my current build here.

  • ASUS TUF Z370 Pro Gaming - Like the toughness and general flexibility.
  • Intel Core i7-8700K - At the time I bought it was a good price and a nice step up from a gen 2 CPU from my old rig.
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti - Looking to upgrade from this but 1070 Ti push me through a lot of games.
  • Graphite Series™ 780T White - Moved from Graphite Series™ 600T and really like the design. Also enough space to work in.
  • CORSAIR Hydro Series, H115i RGB PLATINUM, 280mm - Sticking with the Corsair brand, has nice RGB, and easy to work with.
  • Corsair LL Series RGB fans
  • CORSAIR RM750x with sleeved cables - A nicer look for my system plus the PS can run fanless.
  • G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 1x 32GB kit and 1x 16GB kit - More then what I need but doesn't hurt to have extra memory.


Possible changes/addition
Need to cable manage just a bit. Waiting to not be a human static ball.
SSD for fast game loading.
GPU upgrade for obvious reasons but not in a rush with how well 1070 Ti performs.
Changing out my ACER monitor to a ASUS G-sync one (ASUS ROG Swift PG27VQ). Also 3440 x 1440 isn't in all the games I play so dropping to a 2560x1440p will help.
