Corsair / Asus build Ft. LE Chrome Dominator RAM, Strix 1080Ti !

Hi guys,

Quick shoutout to the main man TinyTomLogan for all the amazing content he puts up on the Tube!

Thought I'd join this community as you seem like a friendly bunch

Here's my (finally completed build!) I had an i7 build planned since the i7 960... so really quite overdue. I've been stuck on an AMD Phenom II 955 and a 6970 for quite some years now, so it's quite beautiful being a video editor and photographer to have a better machine.

Funnily enough, my work wasn't a reason for upgrade, rather the announcement for Fallout 4 VR. Having owned the HTC Vive for quite some time now, I thought it was a good time to throw some beer tokens at a new build.

Specs:

- Intel i7 7700K @ 4.8Ghz
- Asus Strix Z270E
- Asus Strix 1080Ti OC
- Asus Strix 1070 (PhysX, I had it spare so thought I'd use it and why not )
- Corsair Obsidian 450D Airflow edition
- Corsair H115i
- Corsair Special Edition Dominator Platinum 32GB RAM
- Corsair AX 860i
- Corsair Maglev fans
- Samsung 850 Pro 500GB SSD (soon to be replaced with M.2)

So here are a few WIP / beauty shots and some (almost) completed shots













and an (almost) completed build. I plan to do the upgrades noted above, but also add some white LEDs to give it a glow to show components a little better. The pink / magenta isn't as intense in person, but shot to stand out for the internet haha!





That horrible horrible 24 pin... (again, the reason I plan to change the PSU :P )











I hope you like this build. As I say, a build like this has been a dream of mine since the original i7 range. Quite some time later, I've been finally in the position to have a machine like this

I've built machines in the past that were a complete mess, although it was mostly because of the horrendous bright orange / blue and beige colours used on motherboards back then... so I wanted this to be much more aesthetically pleasing (at least to me!)

Thanks again, I hope you've enjoyed this post

*EDIT*

Being a photographer, Once this is fully complete with the changes I plan to do a studio shoot with it - so I'll keep this updated
