7 years is a long time to go between new builds. My trusty old i7-860 based system still has some kick in it. But with new GPUs, CPUs, NVMe SSDs, USB3.1 out there, I felt it was time for a new system.

Initially I was planning on going X99 and i7-6800K or 6850K. But in the end I could not justify the higher prices of the X99 platform. I confess the upgrade is so I can run GTA5 and Doom at higher frame rates. Hopefully this will keep me happy for another 7 years.. LOL

I decided to add some green stripes to the ThermalTake v1 Snow Edition case, and show my love for the J-E-T-S!
