Its excellent, it gives you pretty much any lighting combination and control you could ever want with the software and it looks good in the case. The adhesive is decent and in combination with the magnets it sticks very well. I would definitely pair it with NZXTs fans, sadly though I bought the thermaltake riing right before NZXT announced their fans so im not using them.

Pros - 4 separate rgb zones on the motherboard each can be fully individually controlled

PCIe slots have some reinforcement on them even though it isn't really advertised

M.2 slots of course

Brushed aluminium look and grey/black color scheme looks really good

Bios is nice and almost identical to last gen z170

Decent I/O selection

Cons - Asus logo isnt rgb or lit at all unlike the maximus, formula etc

Only one usb 3 front panel connector which gives you two usb 3 ports

I/O shield installment is literally the worst thing ever to exist, will take longer to install then the to build the entire rest of the build and is generally terrible to work with, however they added an inch of padding to it so your fingers don't hurt while your make 100 attempts to try to get it to snap in and align with the motherboard

Audio driver from the Asus website is weird and doesn't always work so I just use the windows driver

You can order cablemod cables from cablemod. They have paracord cables which are ultra flexible and you can customise their length and color. Also if money isn't an issue, I believe they are coming out/already have 1 TB M.2 SSDs so you could get that for windows and games, and keep the Sandisk for linux and cut down on one SSD but with the same capacity. Finally, I don't know how much it would help with space saving but they make low profile CPU coolers or you could just opt for a liquid cooled AIO.

If money isn't an issue, Asus's higher end X99's are somewhat better. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813128928

It was difficult without any price ranges, but here is a build in the price range that most people who want 4k at 60 fps would probably get. It can be cheaper while still obtaining the FPS you want at 4k, but I didn't know if you wanted the cheapest possible or not.

He will really want 16 GB of RAM if he is playing heavily modded minecraft, that is the second cheapest 960 on the market at 170$ and the i3 is perfect for this price point.. The motherboard is for the extra PCIe slots not supported in your motherboard and an aftermarket cooler is nice to have. 500 GB + 120 GB SSD is a ton and more than you can ever need for gaming if you don't leave trash sitting around in your pc.

No you would't need to upgrade the graphics card or anything unless you want to play games like crisis 3 at high graphics. The RX 460 is about on par with the 950 as far as pure performance goes. To give you an example, the 460 gets about 50 fps in rise of the tomb raider, 40 fps in far cry primal, and 50 fps in the new star wars battle front all at high and ultra graphics. Unless you plan on playing games more intensive than those modern titles and are unwilling to tune down the graphics settings a bit, the RX 460 is plenty, especially for the games you are looking to play.

The intel processor trashes the AMD one in gaming benchmarks since AMD doesn't have very good single core performance as of now, so I would definitely go with that.

I wasn't sure if you wanted a monitor and OS included so here is a build around $2000 with a 2560x1440 monitor and windows 10. To bring down the price I just got some non-led RAM, a boot SSD and 1 TB HDD for larger storage, and a GTX 1070 OC Edition instead of a GTX 1080 regular (smaller performance difference between 1070 Factory overclocked and standard 1080. Asus offers the easy to use GPU Tweak II software to safely and easily overclock your GPU should you need more performance, however both cards should be more than enough for the graphical settings you are looking for without overclocking). http://pcpartpicker.com/list/xmZt3F PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Read the post! I said "ITX builds generally don't have CD drive bays...". Why do you keep harassing me about my part recommendations? Their my opinions about what I think would be best for them, if you disagree with my parts lists you can just recommend your own.

You won't be able to get any of the peripherals or a high end cooler, or an operating system for under $500. This is about as good as it gets for that price range - http://pcpartpicker.com/list/DGQXRG

This PC would be able to easily play the games you want at a high fps, but adding in the full peripherals and OS it will add about 200$ to the build. ITX builds generally don't have CD drive bays, so you would probably have to sit it on your desk outside of the pc. I wasn't sure if you had peripherals in mind, but here is a build with the wifi adapter, OS, a keyboard and a mouse(I swear by this mouse, I have multiples of them even though none of them have broken after 5 years of gaming use just in case they stop making it). Also, headphones likes vary SO much per user so I can't really recommend any. - http://pcpartpicker.com/list/M6GrM8

The cooler is for the theme and will be nice if he ever decides to upgrade, 240 GB is plenty, both my computers combined don't use that much with 15-20 steam games downloaded total (plus a 500G GB HDD is like 20-30$ if he actually needs it later, otherwise it's a waste to buy). Also the builder is a good PSU with bronze efficiency and more than enough wattage for this build.

  1. You can use a PNY 240 GB SSD to cut down 10$ and it's actually a bit faster
  2. The power supply doesn't need to be 500W, you can get the corsair cxm 450W for 10-15$ cheaper
  3. Get a GTX 950 it is cheaper and better than the rx460
  4. You can get a H170 chipset mobo for the same price
  5. If you still want to cut down the price, you can get an i3-6100 without loosing much performance. It only has 2 physical cores but the hyper threading helps make up for it. Alternatively you can get an i5-6400.

You can add more storage later should you choose, but it is senseless to waste money if you don't need the storage right now. Plus you can wait a year or two when you need mass storage and SSDs can store as much as HDDs for a similar price. I can tell you I have that exact same SSD and its nice to have all my games and boot on one drive, and I still have 100 GB left after downloading my Steam games.

The optical drive is for windows and I want it anyways, max budget is 1300$-1400$MAX but I would like it as low as possible, the build is for pretty much any modern game at high graphics, I would consider overclocking, don't worry about the case its not the one i'm using and finally, what do you mean by the cooler is of terrible value?
