I just bought a 1070 and a z70a from a guy on the forum as well :) the [H]ookup is real. Stuff was pretty cheap and I'll update y'all on whether it is DOA or not LOL. Thanks for all the advice to everyone who replied on this post :)

You guys are on some next level stuff with your builds. I’m function over form for now at least, I just need it to perform and power my stream and the games I want to play. I can’t wait to get water cooling all set up though. Your setup sounds dope af man
