Asus Maximus XI Gene Build

I finally finished my new build as my old build is about 4/5 years old (4790k & gtx980) so I fancied an upgrade :cool: .

I couldn't justify going all out on getting an i9-9900k as I wouldn't use all its power on offer (power = heat) and I wanted to have a smaller case on my desk so I settled on the i7-9700k matted to the Asus Maximus XI Gene. After watching a few reviews I went for the G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB Kit DDR4 3200MHz as it works well with the Asus Aura software so I can have everything in the matching colour and 16GB is enough for my to web browse and play AAA titles with easy. One of the things I liked about the Gene motherboard is that you can run four M.2 Nvme SSD's on the board so no need for mechanical HDD's :cool: plus I go to Lan events now and again so that's one less thing to worry about. It will show in the pictures below that there is a bit of a theme going on here :p as I a bought the Thor psu, Ryujin Aio and the Aura terminal and all I can say is that it all go's well together ( Asus fanboy ;) ). I'm very happy with how it all turned out and thought I would show it off to the world. :)

Spec's are as follows

CPU - Intel Core i7-9700K @5.1GHz (Coffee Lake)
Motherboard - Asus Maximus XI Gene
Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB Kit DDR4 3200MHz
Storage - Intel 660p Series 512GB M.2 SSD X4
GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 1080Ti SC2
PSU - Asus ROG Thor 850W 80 Plus Platinum
CPU cooler - ASUS ROG Ryujin Performance AIO
Case - Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1 mATX Case
Case lighting - ASUS ROG AURA Terminal






Really enjoyed building this as its been a while and thanks to ChronoCabel for lending a hand :D and we will be attending Insomnia Gaming Festival i64 over the Easter bank holiday at the NEC Birmingham, so if you there and fancy a meet up drop me a message.

Thanks Al

All that ROG gear, and an EVGA graphics card in the middle... Love it!
But I'm not sure on how to feel about that pink Skywarp.
