that's really a nice build!!
Looks good Brawndo.
Go big or go home. I like it.
I really had no intention to make such a build. I had a Sandy 2600k build that was serving me well for almost 4 years. It had Crossfire 7970 and one day this idea of upgrading the GPU popped in my mind, there are a few titles I was playing that didnít support crossfire. So I decided, no more xfire or SLI for me. Iíll just upgrade to one 980 Ti in my build and all was fine.. and this is where it all started.. When you start reading forums, checking parts online.. It became some kind of obsession, but it was just virtual shopping.
I was diagnosed with arrhythmia earlier, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and this created a lot of anxiety for me, even though apparently my doctor insist it won't kill me.. reading forums (I read way more than I post), ordering parts, the excitement of receiving parts in the mail every week until youíre ready for your assembly, it helped me a lot cope with the stress when my heart goes bonkers. Plus, I will turn 40 years old in a few months so I decided, no compromises. Letís go all in, but no custom loop was the restriction I imposed myself. It wasnít to boast or impress others, it was my personal little project and my gift for my forties.
Sorry for that hehe not sure why Iím sharing that.
My next project will probably be the smallest gaming PC I can build. Iíve started my list, watching videos etc, because this is much more trickier than just buying a bunch of expensive parts and installing them in a big case. Probably will be the AMD Nano for GPU. I will start from that.

I found this and thought you "Builder's" might be interested:
I wanna get one of those M.2 ssds.
I had every intention to get a Samsung 950 M.2 when they came out. But, after thinking about it, I didn't see a whole lot of benefit to them. Benchmark wise, there is no comparison. The PCIe NVME based ones are 4 to 5 times faster than the typical mainstream SSDs. But, when transferring data, you are limited to the write performance of the device you are transferring to. Data transfers to a mechanical hard drive would be the same. A typical SSD can already transfer data faster than a mechanical hard drive can write. Transferring to a typical sata based SSD, will be faster than to a mechanical drive, but SSDs can all read faster than they can write, so you are already maxing out the capability of sata based SSDs. It would seem that the only advantage between a sata based SSD and a PCIe SSD would be that Photoshop, Cyberlink Power Director or a game will load in 25 seconds instead of 1 minute. Is that worth the extra money the PCIe solution costs? That depends on you I guess. For me the answer was no. The difference right now is a 500 GB Samsung 850 EVO can be bought for around $140-150. A 512 GB Samsung 950 PCIe SSD is around $325. To me, a game loading 40 seconds faster is not worth the extra $200. At least, that's the way I see it.
