    Update!


    First... the main player:


    The Dell UP2715K



    Best on monitor audio I've ever heard



    Impossible to keep dust off the edge to edge glass panel though



    Sleek



    The back is quite dirty already it seems...



    Charging port, love it






    I've never used these covers before in the past but it works quite well with this monitor



    4k for the peasants



    5k for the PCMasterRace



    And yes, you can view it in portrait



    These are actually only 4k shots because I am a peasant and only use the laptop near the photo studio


















    The edge to edge glass was honestly what sold me on this monitor. I love the aesthetics of the iMac 5k but I couldn't bring myself to settle for the hardware so I picked up this one as soon as I had realized it was edge to edge glass

    Next up, the sexy platinum 1200W PSU.


    PSU brought to you by the lovely people at Seasonic!



    Packaging as always is wonderful:



    Platinum












    Inside you'll find a flip open box



    Very padded PSU



    My favorite cable bag to date






    Other:






    Lovely PSU bag



    Exposed



    O.O





    Plenty of stuff here and one of my favorite features - hybrid mode.


















    Cables



    Seasonic sleeves the 24pin and uses the flat style ribbon cables for the rest. All black, very clean look for those that aren't custom sleeving.



    Don't worry... there will be sleeving



    Seasonic Sleeving:



    Until next time...

    So I got a bunch of new studio stuff and I did some test shots first with the motherboard I've used for countless builds, and while still the best looking motherboard I've ever owned, it is sadly showing its age and will not be my main in this one


    *Please excuse my scratched up backdrop*


    Anyway... these are just testing out the new toys and experimenting with looks!

    Alright guys, enough teasers! Here's the board and SLI bridge from Asus




    Big ol' box from Taiwan



    ROG OC Panel






    RVE VS RIIIBE IO Plate... kinda miss the black



    OC Panel 5.25" bay









    Pretty standard accessories from the ROG



    This board is hot man...



    mmm



    I'm really glad IO covers are standard on high end boards these days



    ROG



    Holy outputs batman



    Even the subtle design on the PCH heatsink are great



    So many pins



    m.2



    Love the PCI dip switches <3



    SATA for days



    Solid audio. I kinda miss the 6 pin connectors compared to molex but I'll survive. At least it's more strategically placed compared to the 6 pin that used to be way up near the dimms






    ROG SLI Bridge



    Solid aluminum...









    Big thanks Asus ROG Taiwan!

    Here they are...





    Oh yes



    Back in black






    Hnnnnng



    Those cards though...



    <3



    Box from the motherland arrived! EK-Supremacy EVO Nickel Plexi + Nickel mounting plate



    3x EK-FC Titan X Nickel Plexi + Nickel Backplates + EK-FC Terminal Triple Parallel Plexi (what a mouthful...)





    Nickel BPs are hard to take photos of....




    Blood Red Coolant



    Never get tired of our FC blocks...






    Haven't decided which route I'm going to go yet. Thoughts?



    Dat coolant... actually looks like blood.



    Fittings. Inspired by @Malik



    Compression...



    90s





    Pass through, extenders, m-m rotary, female-female



    Pass throughs, female-female, male-male rotary, plugs, and socket extender



    I don't think many know what this fitting is for... the EK-Socket Extender, despite many asking for it.



    Our standard XRES with nickel extender fitting that is required to fill the inset G1/4 threads.



    The socket fittings replace this nickel fitting and now you have a completely black solution!
