Description

This was my first build and it's primarily used for programming. I got a nice gpu so I can try some parallel computing via CUDA... or rather that's the lie I tell myself to cover up the fact that I want to get into pc gaming.

I'm really happy with the case, although I might eventually get some quieter fans as there is a slight whir coming from the giant 200 mm fan in the center.

Also worth recommending is the monitor. I wanted a monitor that could be rotated to portrait so that more lines of code could be visible at one time. At normal text size, I can see about 100 lines at a time. But even if you don't care at all about flipping it to portrait, the quality is awesome and 144Hz!!

Again this was my first build, so there could easily be something glaringly bad about my build (although everything is working great 1 week in) so leave a comment if you'd like! Thanks!

Very skilled build. Good choice of parts. SSD for OS is right decision. Absolutely suitable for programming with option to extend the memory in future. Extreme overclocking is not your goal, so the cooler is good enough. Enjoy.

I love this build and I think I want to build it myself but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend how I might so about changing it up to fit on a microATX board with a smaller case.

Here's a link to a newegg search for mobos with the micro ATX form factor and the 1151 socket which you need for the i7 6700k. Also make sure to get DDR4 ram, it's also a requirement for using that cpu.

That cereal is nasty. The strawberry is the best!

Nonsense! Cinnamon rules!
