StarTech DISPLPORT10L 10 ft. Black Connector A: 1 - 20 pin DisplayPort Male

Connector B: 1 - 20 pin DisplayPort Male DisplayPort Cable with Latches M-M

3 out of 5 eggs Not sure if defective or unsupported by Acer Predator 144hz 27" monitor 12/14/2016

This review is from: StarTech DISPLPORT10L 10 ft. Black Connector A: 1 - 20 pin DisplayPort Male Connector B: 1 - 20 pin DisplayPort Male DisplayPort Cable with Latches M-M

Pros: Length

Cons: I bought this with the intention of using it with my acer predator at 144hz, looks like the dp cable flickers a few times while it's on and then shuts off.

Either it does that or I am stuck at 24Hz

Other Thoughts: A few times I saw 144hz as an option but the signal was unstable, used the cable in both of my 1080's and had the same issue.

EVGA Z170 FTW 140-SS-E177-KR LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Good product but with some issues (User error) 11/11/2016

This review is from: EVGA Z170 FTW 140-SS-E177-KR LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Clean, looks great in my build and has plenty of features

Cons: First Motherboard arrived DOA

SLI support is a hassle, Looks like if you use dual GTX 1080's in SLI makes it so the bottom card is a Phys-X card.
I can't seam to figure out if there's a way to change the PCI port 3 so I can utilize my sli.

I tried SLI in the first two PCI express ports however the 1080 FE cards are so wide that the top card rests just behind the 2nd pci express port and not allowing me to fit for SLI

First Motherboard arrived DOA

Other Thoughts: I'm hoping water blocks help with this build because other then that I'm stumped onw hat to do.
The system looks great! I have an EVGA HBM SLI bridge that supports a 2 slot space and everything is detected except "Sli"

Any additional information would be appreciated on this matter.
