Built to be a multi-purpose machine. Meant for really solid gaming mixed with really solid content creation. Designed to be solid and last fairly strong for the next 4-6 years at least. No problems with it what so ever. The full tower Rosewill Thor-V2 has definitely helped a lot with that. That case is huge!!! The Zalman cooler also works very well at keeping this cpu cool. This is a Linux machine, currently running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and I LOVE IT. No complaints with it what so ever. Linux was definitely the right choice here with this build and for me.
Thanks for reading.
I highly recommend this build or any similar build to this one. You can pretty much throw a brick at it and it will just take it and turn it into ones and zeros while doing some other stuff too. This machine is a multitasking BEAST!!!
What's even crazier is that if you think this build is overkill and pretty intense and hefty, then go ahead and check out its next evolution: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/poomer/saved/PZZqqs That's right, I'm done with this build yet, that linked list is my "dream completed build" for it. Pretty much its everything I could ever foresee-ably want for it.. So basically like future upgrades for it.
