Hello! I wanted to build a small form factor that I can game with and take with me when I travel.

I went with skylake because they were almost the same price as older gen processors when I bought the parts last month. Overall I spent about 1k total taking advantage of holiday discounts.

I was going to use stock cooling since skylake ran pretty cool but I saw the new cryorig c7 and I couldn't resist trying it out.

It is a very impressive cooler for the price. My temps are 37 idle and max is 56 after 30 minutes with prime95. I live in the tropics for half the year so ambient temperature is usually really high.

Gaming with Fallout 4 on Ultra after an hour or so max gpu temp was in the low 60s.

This was my first build in nearly 10 years. The raven rvz was a fun case to work in.
