Description

I typically use my computer for a little bit of everything. Some of the most common uses are

  • Software Engineering
  • 3D Modeling
  • Gaming
  • Video Design
  • Photo Editing/Photography
  • Music Recording
  • General Web Browsing

My old 2600k and 660 TI were getting a bit dated, so it was time to do a little bit of an upgrade. Overall, the build went pretty smooth. The H700i is the easiest midtower I've ever worked with, and the cable management is the best to date. Overall, the system runs pretty great with a modest 5ghz overclock. The setup is whisper quiet, and the temperatures are low.

It is everything I wanted and more.

Nice build!

What type of photography are you into?

Really a mixture of everything. I primarily focus on nature and wildlife, but I also do: portraits, cars, events, and other stuff.

Awesome! Since you focus on nature and wildlife, do you visit National Parks by chance?

I do when I get the chance, unfortunately there aren't many in my neck of the woods. I did manage to visit Yellowstone last December, and it was a blast.

Awesome! It's definitely a blast.

Yeah I live in Pennsylvania, so we don't have National Parks, just National historic sites. I've been to a good bit over the years, but hands down Yellowstone and Grand Tetons were my favorite. We visited for a week in October of 2017. I'm hoping to go back next year some time. This time around I'll make sure to have a lens that can reach pass 300mm. My 300mm lens wasn't long enough for me to get some of the shots I wanted.

Yeah, I was running into issues myself. I had the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM with me, and while it's an amazing lens, it really lacks on the reach department for wildlife photos.

I wish! Might have saved me a few dollars on this build otherwise.

Nice build. My idle temps on my i9-9900 are about 33 C. How are you getting 28 C? Could it be the thermal grizzly?

My computer sits directly next to my central AC vent, and I have a pretty constant stream of ice cold air being blown next to the intakes. The room ambient stays between 65-70° more or less constantly, with colder air being readily available. Prior to replacing the thermal paste and sitting outside of the case, I was getting closer to 35° ambient, if not a little under.
