I've been wanting to post my pc to this site for a long time but wanted to wait until I was finished with a major upgrade. It's been too long for me saving up and planning it out so I'm posting it now and will post the updated version when I finally get it. I know the pictures are bad I didn't bring any of my equipment with me when I moved to college months ago due to space constraints. The reason for the naming is I love that era and name all my pc's after it to tell which one has what hardware etc.
I game very heavily and wanted to upgrade from a previous FX-6300, GTX 650 ti 2GB to something that could actually play 2k 144hz max settings without having a stroke every time anything more than a mouse moved across screen. I also wanted to overkill every single thing I possible could.
CPU - I wanted to overkill everything but I wanted the best performance for gaming so I decided on z170 instead of x99. The 6700k was overclocked to 4.8Ghz stable but I was reading different voltages across several different software and the bios read something else which made me uncertain about leaving it their. (it was in a different mobo which was trash)
GPU - Currently at one 1080 FTW I have another one being shipped right now for its upgrade and I have a 1070 FTW I might try and squeeze in as PhysX) Nothing much more I can do to overkill other than a titan but I do have a budget since I'm 18.
Mobo - I like orange, I wanted three m.2 for raid 0, it's quality is amazing. The board is virtually extinct however and I had to pay a premium just to get a new one, a big premium of 200 USD at the time. (The motherboard doesn't have a price on pcpartpicker cause its extinct now I so did a custom part to reflect the exact price I paid)
Memory - 64GB, orange, that's it.
M.2 - Three 950 pros in raid 0 giving a total of 1.37 TB after everything. Hate loading screens.
Case - Temporary as I'm waiting for a Case Labs case to squeeze everything in. (My excuse for skipping cable management)
PSU - it is gonna need an upgrade after running the upgrades through several wattage calculator sites theres a chance if I stress it - it wont have enough.
NIC's - I have more than 2TB of games so I built a separate NAS to store them all and didn't want to throttle the connection so I bridged the connection over all the ports.
Wireless - The apartment I'm in has 10 Mb/s Ethernet but 150 Mb/s wireless so I just ordered one of these to fix my connection.
For the upgrade it's going to be completely watercooled, the extra cards as mentioned, I'm going to remove the NAS connection and put in more storage for this and transfer it to the case labs case.
