Description

GPU brought in early 2015 Skylake upgrade completed toward the end.

Ended up spending big on the motherboard as the original build had the MSI Krait for the overall black and white theme. When Skylake was released the was no ETA on Krait stock so keeping with a similar theme i just spent big to get the deluxe... it was later identified as one of the best overclocking boards so I am happy. (4.6hgz 24/7)

I brought skylake the week it was released, there was almost no boards on the market at the time. I originally had a eVGA superclocked 980ti (black) but it was DOA so replaced with MSI.

Its a shame Samsung seem to have stop making 120/144hz monitors. This one has been really good for many years! was also much cheaper then the current gaming monitors...

They weren't available when I picked up my 980ti (June). Originally ordered the eVGA superclocked (black) but it arrived and was DOA so I replaced with the only other high end brand in stock. Def would like a black gpu though.
