    Yes, it can run Crysis :p

    I have been enjoying this system since build
    compared to the original Haswell-E system, this one releases considerable less heat.

    The only thing I will upgrade in the future will the SSD, to the new Samsung 960 Pro.
    That will not be until sometime in January though because these things are barely being released and with the Xmas holiday season upon us, it will be a pain buying one.

    I plan to get this heatsink for the system
    Scythe FUMA SCFM-1000



    Is getting good reviews about performance/price ratio. Plus the width will be less of a problem than the Be quiet! Dark Rock 3 currently installed; fan retention clips touch the first GPU.

    Looks good. I'm surprised your PC isn't powered by nuclear reactor.

    If the hardware freak strikes and I upgrade to 1080 Ti's, then I will need a nuclear reactor :lol:

    The last upgrade to this system is SLI 1080 Ti reference cards
    This time I am not going with custom cooler cards since it will be a long wait, late April, and I am hoping to get them in time for Andromeda

    This system is no more,
    With all the new hardware being announced or soon to be announced, I will be most likely itching to get it.
    It was best to sell it before value of components drops even more.

    I am eyeing AMD's rumored 16 core Ryzen platform, assuming is true

    Technically the only components gone are CPU/Motherboard/RAM/GPUs, I have everything else ,waiting for the next thing.

    White hardware is very nice looking but your options are very limited and then you have to deal with matching colors, etc.

    Is something I will most likely not repeat unless more white colored components are released
