This build originaly started as this system
Since october last year until now i have been switching/ upgrading various components, for the sake of small performance increases, changing needs, looks and silence, until finally i am happy with the results.
The changes are:
-GPU: from gtx 970 to a gtx 1060 (i don't game too much anymore so the 1070-80 would have been too much, specially for a 1080p 144hz monitor);
-RAM: got the led vengeance just for looks;
-the 2.5" hdd and the 480gb ssd both installed in the back trays;
-PSU: wanted a newer model with a long warranty;
-added a Sound Card coupled with some audio tehnica ath-avc500 headphones;
-changed all the fans for quieter ones;
-changed the lighting kit to a HUE+ for obvious reasons :D
-replaced the RAT 7 with a newer RAT 6;
-replaced a monitor and installed both on a dual arm desk support.
I use this pc for pretty much everything - CAD work, rendering, gaming, browsing, movies, music etc.
I don't render enough to get on the X99 platform and i don't game enough to get a higher end GPU so the entire build is balanced for all my needs and did my best to make it look good.
It was also important that the system was quiet. The new fans are amazing when compared to the old corsairs i had, the PSU is dead silent, the green edition hdd has very little noise and the new laptop hdd is put on rubber stands so i can't hear that one either. The new strix GPUs are also pretty silent with fans under 50%.
The strix sound card is very good for its price point in my opinion. Coupled with some good headphones it really made a difference over the mobo's sound card (which is also decent btw).
One problem i encountered was with the corsair PSU - a few months into its life it suddenly went bang with a puff of smoke :) Lucky me, none of the other parts suffered and i got it replaced under warranty. I blame it on simple bad luck since i know these models are damn good.
So there it is - no more upgrades planned for a while and i plan on keeping the 6700k platform for at least 3 generations of new cpus and sockets.
Overall i'm very happy with it all :) Hope you guys like it as well!
