ExGreyFox, nicely done. And I just got why you have 3 monitors. I couldn't understand what it would look like, being so wide. I never thought that you'd put it vertically.
Hah yeah I should have said 3 monitor portrait surround

I've been real happy with CPU temps so far. I'm not breaking 60C while gaming at all in the case. But I still have the case door open while waiting for nice braided PSU cables to arrive today so I'm sure it'll jump a little after I button it all up nicely.

you misunderstood what I wrote:

Asus Aura wil hog 1 core of your CPU to like 1/3 if you choose that 1 option called SMART. Any other LED bling-bling option is ok, just SMART hogs a core, for sure not meant to be like this

Oh crap I didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up!

Hey guys, I'm back. I meant to share my benchmark results sooner than this but didn't get the chance. Here is what I'm getting in Cinebench, Firestrike, and Samsung Magician with the system all at stock speeds. Comparing my system to other similar systems at stock this looks comparable. Id love to get your input

Well. You'll probably experience stutters, because it may be just below the required spec
Keep in mind that Cinebench CPU multithread score means nothing as an old 2012 MacPro beats this score with Xeons CPUs (X5690).

For the GPU part, i still experience freezes when playing DCS with teamviewer on my phone, altough i have an OCed 5930k and 4xGTX 1080
Life is rude sometimes
