I got my new PC for $700

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'sIMG_20170613_220152.thumb.jpg.bc7b5f78eb7a7beaf550ea29c10bd1be.jpg

x99 and x2 980Ti ? This is sick, I was expecting one of those barf inducing 1050Ti builds.

Me sad. I'm buying a single 980 Ti for $300, which is basically half that. And that's a tricked out system! Awesome score!

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

I could get a 1080 for $400, but it's a Zotac one (bright yellow) and wouldn't match my build. And I can't find a waterblock for it. Plus, I'll only really be running Battlefront 2 when it comes out at 1440p, so it should be fine. 

 

EDIT: it's an MSI Gaming 6G as well, so it should OC well. The guy I'm buying it from says he used it at 4K with AAA games, and just had to turn down a few settings.
