Now, if you get BSODs, overheating, or it won't post, that's where the skills come in.
Where live, do the offer adult reading classes?

I believe his confusion comes from your implication that solving any of those problems requires skill.
Well obviously if does. If your computer doesn't boot, how are you going to figure out what's wrong with it.
Where's your SSD
Oh yeah, I never posted my final parts list.

You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?
I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.
EDIT: I suddenly realise that I have no idea if posting 3DMark benchmarks is still the hip thing to do. I literally haven't owned a desktop for 6 years. If I'm doing it wrong and should be doing something else to show off my e-penis, please advise.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.
Apparently the 295x2 can still toe-to-toe with the 1080

I'm also noticing that my results are a little bit worse than those of other people's with near-identical gear. I suspect we may be dealing with a case of "SexWarrior did something wrong", but I probably won't have a chance to investigate in more depth until the weekend.Looking at my benchmarks again, it looks like my mobo decided to underclock the RAM for no apparent reason. I doubt that'll make much of a difference, but it's a place to start.
Anything above 2133MHz is going to be overclocked, so you'll have to manually overclock it, or set up XMP.
Post your dmesg.
