Explanation of some of the hardware choices.
Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Why this CPU and not the i7- 4770k? Well i have a i7-4770k but this i5 overclocked a TON better then the i7. Some reason the i7 runs at like 48c right out of the box.. im going to delid it and add some good thermal paste..... so I got EXTREMELY lucky on my i5 :0 But i will say for video editing the hyper-threading on the i7 would be better .
G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-2400- Before you start trolling about the 16GB of ram , The reason behind this is because i have had this ram for over a year now and it was free!! you can never go wrong with too much ram.
X2 Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD- Why do i have Two SSDs? Well that because there in RAID 0 configuration of course. Better performance. Faster read and write times!
Dell S2440L 24.0" Why this Screen? well it was free... cant go wrong with that!
NZXT HUE RBG Controller. Why did i get this? Well because i like to daydream all the time and its nice to have pretty colors flashing in front of me.
What is this computer used for? Photo/Video Editing and Moderate gaming. Moderate OCing, Bench-marking All around balanced PC that doesn't hurt the wallet too bad.
*EDIT " Need to think of a good name to call this thing" Please give me some ideas !
