I don't like how he's got his drives setup at all, dunno why he spent all that money then went with the crucial SSDs.
Apart from that and the needlessly massive 24GB ram, awesome build lol. Dual 590's, me gusta.

edit: ALSO what no watercooling??? Gotta have it if you've got a 980x

He's using the stock cooler and only a single 590.


I like that monitor stand.

Yha sweet setup, but overkill for gaming... The M.Mods cases are crazy, you can use it as a table.

There is no such thing as overkill. He obviously can't OC without it burning up and blowing up.

For sure. I didn't know he was building it until he posted the thread.
