I built this in august of 2018 but why not post it.
CPU- At the time I bought the 7700k when it was the flagship, should last for a few more years before I want an upgrade. I don't like AMD, fight me.
COOLER-The corsair h100i v2 is more than enough to cool my CPU and I'm also a corsair fanboy.
MOBO- This motherboard was top of the line when I got it. I've only bought Asus motherboards so it was a no brainer. (oooh pretty colors!)
RAM- Decent price to performance ram and I got the 3000 MHz kit. I just added and extra 16gb of some gskill ram. The GSKILL ram is 3200mhz so I'm bottlenecking it but I can run some more chrome tabs. ( betrayal to corsair)
STORAGE- Hard drive blah blah I GOT SPACE! ( I did get a good deal on my m.2 drive and the 500 GB 850 evo was giving to me for free.)
GPU- I got the 1060 since I spent all my money on the CPU and this was the time of the "Great GPU Drought." I chose the EVGA one because my cousin told me EVGA was the best, I guess it subliminally entered my mind when purchasing. I'm also going to upgrade it to a 2070 or something (will be EVGA but why did they have to make them so ugly.)
CASE- I know I know I betrayed Corsair. The S340 ( which I think is discontinued now, RIP)which beat my other choice (the Corsair 750D.) The 750D was too big and expensive.
PSU- UHH PSU? CORSAIR
Overall a good build and I won't need to upgrade the CPU for a few years, also I'm going to add some fans with cool flashy lights over black friday (the nice corsair ones.) My mic stand has been janky for 2 years and the mic itself has been dropped, run over by a dirtbike and abused. The PC on the left side is a server PC (ignore it, and the laptop.) Yes I took that photo to flex on my friends, airpods and all. CORSAIR keyboards are the best don't even say anything about them not being the best.
I love my desk.
if there are any grammar errors I'm too lazy to fix them.
(EDIT) I posted a pc box build since I guess people have a fetish for them
