New build for 2014, old build was getting old.
Main uses are gaming, school work and video/photo editing & rendering.
CPU: Not a hardcore video editor/renderer but i still do some rendering and photo/video work when i can. So it is unnecessary for my uses where a 4670K would have more than sufficed, but it was a gift.
CPU cooler: Picked it up for $50. Does what it needs to do, doesn't block any ram slots and keeps my CPU very cool when gaming and under load.
Thermal Compound: Non-conductive high performance thermal compound which was cheap.
Motherboard: Great motherboard, aesthetically and feature wise. Updated to latest bios through the USB feature.
Memory: Salvaged from old rig, w/ an extra stick 4GB stick laying around gave me 16GB of RAM which is great and saved me $220.
Storage: Even faster performance than before in my old rig. I run them in RAID 0 and have RAID 0 TRIM support from the latest bios update. Enough space for my needs, for now. Boots in <10s. 1GB Sequential Read speeds.
GPU: Insane performance for an insanely low price in Australia. Runs a bit hot and a bit of coil whine but doesn't bother me.
Case: Love the design and QC is very high. Will consider custom watercooling for this case.
PSU: Actaully a v2 model of the NZXT Hale90 and is made by FSP, very good quality and pricing is decent. REASON for this overkill of a PSU is because end of this year i will be upgrading to whatever is the best at that point in time, and will be getting 2 of those 'whatever is the best for me' for SLI/Crossfire.
Monitor: Its 1440P, its PLS, and i didn't have to spend $650 on an ASUS model, saving me $275. I did OC it 96Hz and max OC was 120Hz but flickering occurred, so i backed it down to 96Hz.
Keyboard: Just came in today. You can FEEL the quality Ducky has put into this. Currently using the reactive function.
Mouse: Newer revision of the mamba series. It's still good but i'm currently looking to further improve on this in the future.
Speakers: Taking a rest from headphones and just using my speakers until the ATH-ADG1's come out.
Ducky Leather Wrist Rest: I like wrist rests.
Razer Goliathus Speed Edition mouse mat: Not much to say, it's nice.
