ORIGINAL BUILD DATE - 12/06/2016
MOST RECENT REVISION - 8/21/2019
My tried and true gaming system recently just went kaput due to a short on the mobo. The new GeForce GTX 1070 was around the corner, figured now would be a great time to build a new system.
This is my beautiful new setup; 2nd custom computer I've built for myself. I had spent months planning and carefully selecting each part to get the best bang-per buck (keeping it on a budget since I pay the bills for two). I was lucky enough to receive well handled parts (no RMAs) and the total build time only took around an hour. Very happy with the outcome!
Color or theme was not a factor for me in the parts chosen. My computer doesn't require no flashy lights and bling. As long as it performs above and beyond expectations, who the f*** cares what it looks like.
The reason for the name "Deftone"... the band Deftones has been an absolute favorite.
If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments. Half the fun of building the damn thing is getting to talk about it ;)
