  1. Yes it will work. But motherboard comes with WiFi included, what you need second one for?

  2. will work, but can be improved.
    I will opt for Noctua D15 for better cooling, 8700k runs really hot with overclocking.
    3rd party thermal paste not necessary
    2x16 gb is better than 4x8 due to less stress on memory controller, 16 gb is enough if only gaming
    No SSD ?! too slow, I guess you need this for rendering or other productivity stuff.
    SLI 1080 ti?! don't tell me it is just for gaming :)
    case can be better airflow due to you have 2 heat producer there
    good call on psu
    do you really need 3rd party sound card? Onboard sound card is kind of enough
    4k 60 FPS monitor, not good gaming experience.
    no need for wifi, has onboard wifi already :)

    Can you tell me your major usage and total budget? Can fine tune for you.

  3. Awfully expensive build not to have a SSD. If your budget goes up to $3,500 and it's for gaming/streaming then I'd recommend this.

  6. Kind of a dumb question, but what is better for gaming: a single GTX 1080 ti or two GTX 1080 sli?

    Considering the poor SLI support I'd go with a single GTX 1080 ti.

  8. I wanna use this rig for 8k gaming.

  9. Doesn't matter what the resolution is, if there is no SLI drivers for the games you'll be playing then that second card is a expensive paper weight.

  12. Wrong link.

  13. You still went with SLI... look at the PCPer link I posted above, it gives you a system that has AIO coolers on both the CPU & GPU, plenty of SSD and storage space and also gives you one of the best gaming monitors available (1440P ultrawide with 100hz Gsync) which will work great with a single 1080 ti. All of this well under the price of the builds you have been posting.
