So build is complete. Cable management still needs some attention. Here are some bad photos. 😊

I have now opted for another GTX 1070 will post pictures later. I now need custom sleeves and better cable management.

How is the space of the case? As I'm considering this case but unsure if x99 will fit as I also have a H115i to be installled. I noticed you have the H115i. Just want to make sure don't want to be cramped up in a case. Nice build btw

I'll let the OP put his 2 cents in. But it's a decently sized case. Nothing like a 780T, however will fit a H115i, as long as you don't have high profile ram, then everything will be fine :). But it definitely is a beaut to look at.

Thanks Bud :) see the issue that I'm having is the 780T is to big and the case itself is heavy none the less I need something smaller which can provide sufficient space for all the components in my sig.

There is ample space. I am running a X99 board with no issues. The second GPU does not have a lot of clearance at the bottom but this is because I am running them in PCIe 1 and 3. Temps are still good none the less. Cable management can be a bit tricky, but that is nothing some time cannot fix. I would recommend this case with a Phanteks LED strip for morrrre FPS of course.

Hi [MENTION=36885]MellowYellow[/MENTION]

Planning on getting the same screen and case soon. Your thoughts and experience with the screen so far?

Screen is fine. I have applied an ICC calibration to fix the colours. But honestly I'm not a professional and the screen is pretty and smooth

I can confirm this to be true. With normal single color led strips you looking at about 5 fps gain, with rgb you'll get a good 15-20 fps so definitely a worthwhile component. OP why not put the fans below the rad? Nothing wrong with how it is, I'm just ocd about fans being in pull when theres no need for it, unless there is a need?

So next in the pipe line; some custom cables and some cable management.

I was thinking beyond customs?
Please feel free to advise.
