    Nice machine but I do wonder how Coffee Lake will do when its released later this year. If it is basically a slightly improved SKL with 50% more cores,its going to be the ideal gaming CPU.

    Nice build but that case would be a deal-breaker.

    80 degrees for that CPU under load is pretty embarrassing with that much cooling power thrown at it. Especially when the previous gen ran almost 20 degrees cooler with a similar cooling setup, albeit one radiator was a bit larger and the overclock was 0.4GHz lower. I don't mean to knock scan's work, they've just been dealt a CPU with a naff heatspreader design

    Good to see you gave AMD a chance by including a weak system, bias?

    end of the day if you was going to spend this much on a pc...... you'd build it yourself or at least part pick it yourself.
    Amd threadripper seems to offer much more at less money.
