Nice build 😄

I'm a RAID guy, so popping in another 256GB 850Pro screams at me, but you'll find availability of these drives is declining rapidly now that Samsung has moved on to newer things. I personally mislike Corsair PSUs, but I've noticed those digital AXi models are apparently very solid and reliable products. I suppose you must be considering an i7-4790K if you're overclocking enough to want a full EKWB setup?

Well the watercooling is more for the dual 980ti's and having the CPU in the loop would be just a bonus,

Very nice clean build you have, if your GPU's don't over heat there's no reason to water cool them unless that is just what you want to do as there is just enough red on them to make them look like they belong there.

Thank you 😄

Well they start throttling and I want to OC them and see what they can do.

Nice build. I like Strix backplate and red cube behind graphic chip.
Look cool from top.
You can full PC Specification on your profile.
Powerful setup. You can play games on 4K and on 1440p easy with all filters.
Maybe and I decide to build ROG Project after New Year.
I saw one small but very nice case for ROG Build...
Silverstone RV05B-W is small case, for mATX but because motherboard position inside could fit and mine Rampage 5 Extreme E-ATX and later some Rampage Gene example... Case is so cool and small and I think smallest case capable to hold E-ATX boards.
Because now more people go on smaller but powerfull PC and bigger Monitor.
And ASUS should always to make mATX boards with same VRM and controllers, number of phases as big motherboards.
Difference is only because mATX is for people who use only 1-2 graphics, overclocking Processor and Memory should be same.

Just a little bit jealous :cool:

The red cube GPU socket thing is indeed attractive.

It inspires notions of doing some chromy red metal finish all over my machine. Well worth the effort, but a substantial undertaking filled with perils, lol, maybe one day.

I love the cabling and its a nice clean straight forward build. This build totally makes sense.Well done mate. Good idea to keep temps down too as i am going to go in that direction also.
