    I got my new PC for $700

    Thanks! I highly recommend spending 10-15% more on a 1070 if it's available in your area.

    I got my new PC for $700

    Definitely best finding I've ever made on the used market

    I got my new PC for $700

    first sentence. seller was moving across country next day and needed cash fast
  4. Story: The seller was moving across the country and could not bring it with him, so I got this tricked out Origin Millennium for only $700. Specs: CPU: i7 5820K cooled by a 360mm Asetek AIO MoBo and RAM: Asus X99 Deluxe 3.1 paired with 2x8Gb DDR4 GPUs: 2x980Ti EVGA reference PSU: Corsair RM1000 Storage: 2TB HDD (which I chose not to use and instead put in an SSD) This is my first prebuilt high end PC. Like most of you, I have always built and upgraded my PC. Review: There are some things I really liked and disliked about my new PC. Liked: -Very well built, impeccable cable management -Full Sleeved cabling -High quality case: Quality paint finish, quality side panel window, integrated lighting and fan controller -AIO cools extremely well -Adequate room for SLI cards to breath Disliked: -Stock fans were extremely noisy even on lowest setting with fan controller, shows Origin cared very little about acoustics -Design of case is near terrible: panel mechanism sucks hard for the user to service because screws are in weird places lack of cooling support even though the case is huge (0 front mounted radiator options), no 140mm mounts forces you to use all the expansion bays in the front instead of opening them up for cooling Additions I've made -Switched to all solid state storage: 500Gb M.2 and 250Gb SATA ssd's -Switched all fans to Noctua NF- F12's

    980Ti Reference Cooler Base Material

    Thanks for clearing that up. No hard feelings

    980Ti Reference Cooler Base Material

    Could be nickel plated but I doubt it. Temps aren't that bad but I have to crank up the fans a lot higher than I'd like since it's summer. I'll repaste with something of quality if things get worse.

    980Ti Reference Cooler Base Material

    Don't be stupid and believe that someone who's had much more experience than you on LTT hasn't already tried looking things up.
  8. Does the 980Ti reference use copper on the baseplate? I want to use liquid metal with it which won't work with aluminum

    Have to rebuy Win10 after restoration?

    run an administrative command prompt (cmd) and type in slmgr /upk (This uninstalls the key)
  10. I have an i7 5820k and 2 980ti's in SLI. Running the Windows 10 creator's update
  11. Good luck to whoever is kind enough to use their time to help you because you live in Poland yet you linked all your build component prices from American stores.
  12. My bad. That's an interesting choice by Asus. It makes it a lot easier for AM3 users to transfer
  13. Also, the 1800x is pointless when the 1700 can be overclocked to around the same for $100+ less. I have no idea why people buy the 1800x unless it's for a microcenter combo
  14. You actually need AM4 mounting hardware from NZXT separately. This made a lot of people angry because NZXT took a long time to send out mounting brackets
  15. Sir you have one excellent sample of Hawaii GPUs. Just shows how relevant they still are even after 2 generations of new cards have come out
