Breadboard Developer Workstation Build

by breadboard.ai

Description

Our goal for this specific build was to create an insanely fast PC; we don't like waiting (obligitory). We wanted to run dual M.2s in RAID 0 so we went with a Z170 chipset for the motherboard. We went with the fastest CPU compatible with the socket and the fastest GPU we could get our hands on. This rig is fast, and compiles stuff like a monster.

We did run into a few problems with the build: * CPU cooler fitting incorrectly * BIOS updates failing * Configuring the M.2s in RAID 0

The rubber ducky's add performance right? Moral booster for the CPU. :D

Not to mention early overheating detection!

+1 for a dual M.2 set up, I didn't realize they made motherboards with more than one M.2 slot.

This board actually has 3 but we needed some of the PCIe lanes so we could only run 2.

The rubber duckies gave me a much needed laugh today! Thanks!

Man I would love to feel the power of thos M.2 Drives in Raid. That's like bucket list level experience

It's only for work at the moment... I know I know, it's a travesty.
