Description

So this is my first ever PC build from 2017. You may notice that despite the high cost of the entire setup (missing a lot in the list) I still opted for an i5, mid range motherboard, and even a second hand GPU. This is because I knew that I didn't really need the best of the best in terms of performance for my day to day work including light gaming and 3D modeling. The best part is that I have the PC display mirrored between the monitor upstairs and my home theater projector with 7.1 surround in my living room so I can seamlessly transition between with 2 full sets of peripherals over cat6 HDBaseT 4:4:4 extenders. I tend to live the built not bought lifestyle and building this computer was my gateway drug. I hope you guys don't mind that this is posted almost 2 years late.

Funny note - First startup it ran leak free for 5 minutes until it popped a line and pumped the entire reservoir of distilled water into my power supply before I could react. Good times. Still works great since it was distilled water.

Edit: added some recent photos with a few changes. I'm liking the EKWB Cryofluid.

Nice desk, mind if I ask where you had that done?

I built it myself. Drew it up in Creo, cut and welded the square tube stock, ripped and glued the douglas fir top. I appreciate that you think I had it professionally done.

I’d say it most certainly looos professionally done; you really know your way around the DIY space.

A GTX 980 Ti performs similarly to a GTX 1080 minus power efficiency, which isn’t the newest card but is still impressive. The overall specs would have most of us drooling :D +1

I hope to see more builds from you, I see that you had made two identical systems for that local vet clinic and you clearly have expertise in the PC building realm :)

I don't know which I love more, the desk or how you play zelda.

I love the 3d printer/graphic design set up, looks sweet as hell. I got issues with the P5 case though, does not support EATX.
