We ran with the two stock fans. I have yet to hear of any issues with temps.
You can actually often get this for under $500 if you look on Dell's webstore.
I would just like to add that you can often get the Dell monitors at a much lower cost from the Dell online store.
The Dell S2417dg is 24in 1440p 144hz gsync. It is, however, a TN panel.
The NEX series is pretty much the only series by EVGA that I would not entirely recommend. Though it might be a bit more expensive; I would recommend the 650 G2 or G3. The price gap can mostly be closed if you put in a 650 GQ though it's not fully modular.
The NEX series isn't all that great.
Unless you're getting that monitor in addition to one you already have, you don't need a 1080.
The case is specifically designed to have the motherboard cover up the hole for the cable.
The original build was built when the 1060 was next to impossible to get and OP probably ordered it before the 1060 was announced. The difference in performance is small enough that it isn't worth the money for an upgrade.
This was built April 1st. Pascal hadn't been announced yet.
Op lives in Australia.
Amazing. I was actually planning to do this. I have an old Xbox in my closet that I don't use. What modifications did you have to make to the Xbox to make this work?
Please direct me to where I could get a gtx 1080 for $440. I would love to take advantage of this deal while it lasts.

NEX PSU's aren't very good. I also put in an AIO cooler (yes it will fit). The cpu was overkill so I switched it to an also pretty overkill cpu. If you prefer air coolers than I'd go with the Cryorig H7 over the 212.

What's your budget and what will you be using this for?
The i5-6500 is a great cpu. It makes no sense to go Z170 if you won't be OCing. 1x8 makes it cheaper to upgrade to 16gb. The psu is a good psu, not the best in the world, but good. The only thing I'd change about the part list is an EVGA 1060 SC because it has better cooling. Nice build op.
Dunno, I might just be bad at this whole new "seeing" thing.
I wish I had that kind of money. Nice build! I'm no expert so I might be wrong but you might want to flip the psu orentation because it seems to be on carpet.
Fixed it. Apparently blowing air into the switch helps. A lot.
Sorry, I didn't mean new as in the condition of the keyboard. I got it open box from Micro Center. The previous person likely returned it for this reason. I was seeing if there was any way to fix it without returning it.
The case comes with some.
Talk about a dream build.
It is currently in open-alpha. You can get it at robertsspaceindustries.com
Did you not see where he said the RX 470?
Get an SSD.
I'm pretty sure CAD means the currency.
Looks good! (Again I'd strongly recommend getting a mass storage drive)
Looks pretty good. You're going to have a great time with that build once you get the gpu.
First up you'll want to replace that 212. It's not a bad cooler but the Cryorig H7 is only a few dollars more ($34.50 on Newegg) and cools better. You might even want to go with watercooling. You'll definitely want a 1tb hard drive. They're cheap and you can have mass storage right off the bat. If it's just for gaming you can switch the X99 mobo for a Z170. If you aren't doing video editing, streaming, rendering, or the like alongside gaming, it also would help by switching over to an i5 6600k because it's about $150 cheaper and has little to no difference in gaming. This is only if the games you will be playing aren't extremely cpu intensive.
It really depends on aesthetics and features. It's up to you. You can find more information on the manufacturers' websites. I personally will probably be going for an EVGA SC.
You wouldn't be disappointed.
Alrighty, I'll look into that. Thanks.
Would this work better? http://pcpartpicker.com/product/6p8H99/evga-power-supply-220p20650x1
Pascal has pretty low power consumption so I doubt you'd need a new psu. The only differences between the founders edition and the other is that the founders edition has the Nvidia cooler and it's made with "higher quality" materials.
Our Lord has returned!
Sounds good. Just make sure you get the high quality stuff.
At low settings I think you'll get about 2 fps. I recommend watercooling the psu. You'll probably get up to 5 fps.
I've heard the Cryorig H7 is pretty good.
I was thinking this might work. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fan-fdfanventhf14bk
I might get a better fan with the money saved from the second one.
Thanks for the suggestion. I've been wondering whether or not the window would be worth it. I've decided that it would look cool and that noise isn't a huge factor as I use headphones anyway.
Alrighty I'll make that change. Thanks!
