ASRock Z270 SuperCarrier Build

BoyScout

April 24, 2017

ASRock offered us their new Z270 SuperCarrier, so we decided to put together a high-end Kaby Lake system to show it off. Watch the build video to see how it came together and check below for the Cable Management Time Lapse video to see how Barry cleaned things up after the build.

We've also posted a Completed Build write-up with more pictures and benchmarks.

A big thanks to ASRock for providing the motherboard and NZXT for providing the CPU cooler used in this build.

Problem, wont those case fans run at full speed all the time? Or is there a button or switch for fan control?

The case hub has a speed control (Off/Low/High) switch up top near the power and front panel USB, etc. You can see it if you look carefully in the final build shots showing the top of the case near the end of the video (or in the completed build images).

This is my most likely CPU/motherboard combo for a music PC build I am about to do. Still doing some research, but it is nice to see this combination used in a build. Excellent cable management. Very nicely done.

Is Team Dark a good ram?

We've had pretty good experiences with the Team Group brand of memory across a number of builds now.

Would you recommend it over the G.skill? Thanks!

I would personally treat them pretty equally, given similar speeds and timings, leaning towards the option that best aesthetically matched my system and met my price target.

Nice build! I feel amazed with the GTX1080 SLI.

Great SLI build! You guys did a first class job. I know that multi-card builds are coming out of fashion, but I love to see multi card builds done more often. I run two 960s myself and really enjoy the set up.

The Supercarrier and those RAMs are a match made in heaven.

Indeed. They really matched up beautifully.

Thanks for the feedback. Shouldn't be too much longer before we revisit our budget gaming PC guide for an updated video guide.

I'd also like a ryzen 5 build (i.e. r5 1500x or 1400)

I will be posting my build soon, but I built one with the g4560, and a 1060 3gb for around $500.
