Looks impressive.

Hope it arrives soon for you, I remember how eager I was for my PC.

It was delayed by a day & I tried to collect it from the delivery company as depot was near me, they told me it was there but I couldn't collect it unless I had specified that when ordering. I wanted to kill them :P

Probably won't over clock. No need to put the stress on the system when it doesn't need it.

You can always overclock at a later date

True. 

The only reason I'm getting a new PC is because my current system locks up and bsod with the dpc_watchdog violation. I've tried every step that I've found online with no positive results. Sad because it's not a bad PC either.... if it weren't for the bsod I probably wouldn't upgrade for another few years.

That's a shame.

Dude, I have the Entho Luxe case and let me tell you. Best case I have ever owned, bar none!!! I would highly highly recommend outfitting the case with only Phantek fans or Corsair magnetic levitation fans for cooling. The Phantek fans are awesome and very very quiet. I did just recently switch over to the Magnetic Levitation Fans to give them a try but they are a little louder than the Phantek Fans. One more thing. If you decide to get the LED Strip to put inside the case for ascetics, throw away the 3m adhesive strips if provided, they're garbage! Instead go to a Home Depot and but a Velcro kit and hand cut your strips and apply them to the LED strip and inside the case. It can't be seen but it holds up way better under the heat. 

 

Great Choice on cases. You'll love it!!!

One question regarding your new build. Why did you decide to go with the i9 series processor? Not to put a damper on things but most of the reviews on the processor are pretty negative in terms of the actual design. They likened it to a cash grab for Intel before the newer AMD comes out.

I've read the reviews, but wanted to find out for myself. I'll post a picture of my system when i get all the parts and put it together!

People say that it was just a cash grab before the new AMD's launch, but the specs are better than any other processor out right now. Besides i'm really not a big fan of AMD.

The specs are definitely nice on that processor. Are you also doing video editing on the side? Your future proofed the system for quite some time with that build. One thing, make sure the fan hub controller on the case is working properly. They had to resend me a new controller hub because it failed out of the box. Not a huge inconvenience because of all the fan controller built into the motherboard, the controller hub merely makes it possible to have as clean of a build as possible by concealing all the wiring behind the motherboard.  One last question. How are you cooling the processor? I went from an H80i GT Rev 2 to an H100 and placed the intake at the front of the case. works great.

EKWB Custom Loop Water Cooling for the CPU and a 3 thermaltake fans will be my cooling solution. I had a Corsair H100 on my current system and I wanted to try out a custom loop this time.

I would highly recommend getting the Phantek 140's if you're going to use all three slots at the top. It comes with 3 x 140's and a 200 in the front. The reason I mention using the Phantek Fans is simply that they are QUIET! I ran my H100 to the front of the case with a push/pull using 4 mag lev corsairs this recent update. They are nice but still not as quiet as the Phantek's.  Definitely, post a pick when you are done, and look into the Phantek LED strip. There is a plug already built into the front panel that runs along the top back side of the motherboard tray. It's a perfect length to connect to the LED strip without wiring having to show. I'll reconnect mine again. I failed to remember that after installing the new fans on the H100 and blocked access to the front panel connection so I will save that for another day.

If his system gets any more powerful, the US will take N. Korea off of sanctions and put them on him and his system.

I have to ask what exactly are you planning to do with such a beastly machine? Are you doing content creation? I would love to see it once it is put together. I am planning to build a new machine for myself and turn my current one (i5 6600k, 16g DDR Fury X memory, 1070 video card) into an HTPC. Debating on going either Ryzen or Intel I7 since I do stream and may get into some video editing possibly.

I have a degree in 3D Modeling so it's not just for gaming.

That is one sexy beast! Awesome build Moshay. So I have to ask what your overall opinion is of the Phanteks Case? I mentioned in the thread above that I have the same exact case and it is by far the best case I have ever owned. When I decide to do another build I already have my eye set on this Phanteks case. Enjoy.
