Ultimate Gaming PC

Level 15

Building gaming PCs is a fun hobby. Not everyday do you get to build the really high-end machines though. But when the opportunity presents itself, it just makes the whole process even more enjoyable. This particular system has been specced specifically towards providing the best gaming experience possible at 4K resolution. Nevertheless, efforts have also been made to ensure that it's a powerful all-around system even for professional work like 3D modeling, video or photo editing. As with all projects, the budget is a limiting factor so only products from the consumer market were chosen for the build.

Here's a breakdown of the components:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6950X
CPU Cooler: EKWB Predator 360
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Edition 10
Memory: Kingston HyperX Savage 128GB (8x16GB) 2666MHz
Storage: Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB
Storage: Kingston HyperX Savage 480GB
Video Card: ASUS Strix GTX 1080
Video Card: ASUS Strix GTX 1080
Case: In Win D-Frame 2.0
Power Supply: In Win SIII-1065W

In Win D-Frame 2.0

Being a very high end build, it would only be right to choose a special case for the system. In Win is notorious for producing gorgeous computer cases so it was obvious where one needs to look. After a few considerations, the D-Frame 2.0 was chosen to house all the components for the build. The choice wasn't hard to make considering it was kind of like love at first sight. The D-Frame 2.0 is a very eye-catching case that brings this unparalleled uniqueness to the table. The black and gold platinum theme and the tempered glass side panels definately give the case a luxurious feeling to it.


A nice looking gold plaque with the D-Frame logo in the top right of the case helps add some extra bling.


The tempered glass side panel is secured to the case using four special edition 30th Anniversary thumbscrews.


The four rubber feet protects the case and prevent it from sliding around the desk during assembly of the system.


The gold tinted tempered glass side panel is pretty thick and very resistant to scratches. In Win is considerate enough to include a big microfiber cleaning cloth to polish the side panel.


The D-Frame 2.0 comes with four multifunctional brackets for mounting up to 4 SSDs or HDDs. In regards to cooling, In Win provides two 120mm fan brackets and a 360mm radiator bracket. Both brackets come with pre-installed thumbscrews for easy removal and installation.


The I/O panel houses a microphone jack, headphone jack, USB 3.1 Type-C port, three USB 3.0 ports, power LED, hard drive activity LED and power button.


The D-Frame 2.0 provides flexible cooling options. The fans and radiators can be mounted in the front or at the bottom of the case.


In Win includes their exclusive Signature Series SIII-1065W power supply with the D-Frame 2.0 so clearance won't be an issue here.


Photos probably don't do the D-Frame 2.0 justice. Here's a video, for your delight.

Thank you! The PC is finally finished.

Looking forward to seeing your build with the Rampage V Edition 10 though! 🙂

All the components were bought long before NVIDIA announced their Titan X Pascal. 😛

Thanks! 🙂

Hopefully if it gets under way soon 🙂 I will be doing a full case mod with the build and plan on all black except for some ROG Certified parts and the RGB LED setup.

I watched the video very nice setup you have there 🙂

You know what they say. If you want the best, you have to go ROG. 😉
