  • Gigabyte Contest Skylake Build

    Core i7-6700k (4.6Ghz)
    32Gbs DDR4 Corsair Vengeance LPX
    Asus z-170A MoBo
    4x120Gb ssd (raid 0)
    GTX 1080 FE (2.1Ghz)
    Thermaltake Core P5
    Corsair RGB Strafe
    LG IPS 4k Freesync 27"
    Custom waterloop, with a photon D5 pump, and a 480 res.

    This rig started a long time ago as a spunky i5 6400 with a gtx 970, with dreams to take on the big boys. Three hard months of non stop landscaping for retired women later, this rig has almost none of the original parts, excluding the Asus Z-170A. This rig has not failed me, however, I probably could have stopped upgrading long ago. Oddly enough, I find that building computers is more enjoyable to me than the games I play on them. I long for a job where someone would just pay me to build computers all day and all night. I love building a new system, and although this system is amazing, a chance to work with a 2011-v3 socket CPU would be an amazing opportunity to really test how far I can push performance. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my scrubby pictures.
