This computer of mine was built in 2012. However, nearly all of the parts have been upgraded since then. The only 'original' parts are the optical drive, Ram, and the power supply. The case is also original.
I started out almost four years ago with an i7 2700k and a GTX 670 from EVGA. Since then, I went from Sandy Bridge to an i7 3770k, and from there got a new motherboard - an Asus Maximus VII Formula, and installed a 4790k. In between all of these, my 670 became a 780, and my 780 became a 980, my 980 was 'retired' and became a 980 Ti. In fact, my 'paperweight' (They are still functional) 980 and 980 Ti are the only graphics cards I have kept after removing them from my system. I am currently running an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition. I do not overclock, but have ran into problems with thermal throttling on the FE cooler. I went with it because I like Nvidia's NVTTM shroud design. To get rid of the problem, I created a custom fan profile with MSI Afterburner. The card does not reach above 70c on full load now, and no longer throttles below 1800 MHz. My turbo clock is usually ~1835 MHz at full load, but I've observed as high as 1898 MHz personally, and certain applications such as Unigine Heaven have reported clocks as high as 1911 MHz, which is pretty decent considering I haven't touched a bloody thing! The build date is the date of when I installed my last major upgrade. However, as aforementioned, the original PC is several years old, although only a few parts can bear witness to that.
Benchmarks: This is kind of a system update. I originally had a build called 'Sturm's Awesome PC', which was the same as this albeit with my old 980 Ti. The difference here is that I'm running a GTX 1080.
Anyway, in Unigine Heaven, I ran a benchmark loop at 1440p and maxed out settings, including 8x AA. I ended up with an average framerate of 65 fps. This figure is noticeably higher than some review sites' tests. I assume this is because I am using a custom fan profile for the card, since the default one is way too conservative to maintain a stable (and high) boost clock.
In Metro: Last Light Redux, I ran the in-game benchmark at 1440p and the highest options that were selectable, including SSAA and Physx. I ended up with an average fps of 48. Not too shabby, eh! Keep in mind the SSAA benchmark option forces 4x SSAA, which effectively brings the amount of pixels rendered at a resolution of 1440p (2.5k) to 10 million pixels. This is over twice the amount of pixels utilises in 4K, and also more than 5K. That is pretty damn impressive...
Here is my latest 3Dmark Firestrike score: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/13085736?
I will eventually post an up-to-date Firestrike Ultra score as well. The problem is, 3Dmark has been somewhat erratic recently, particularly with the new stress test feature. What else is new...
