Description

Not sure why, but every time I look at this machine I think of Jon Snow, hence the name. lol

So this is my second build and this time around I have chosen to go all out. I figured why not build the rig I have always wanted before I go back to school and end up broke. I will be pursing a degree in interactive and 3D technology so this build is one for both hard core gaming and productivity with some overclocking to boot. It took me about a month of planning and research to finally settle with a LGA 1151 build. I chose the Intel 6700K for it's amazing gaming capabilities and potentially blistering overclock speeds. The motherboard was a no brainier. It's MSI, silver, has enough power connections to power anything for the next few years, wicked overclock abilities, and is just all around sexy to look at. A 500gb ssd for the main and a 1tb ssd for games. At this point I have not added a Graphics card yet. I was planing on throwing in a GTX 1080 when I was able to get my hands on one but now that more benchmarks are becoming available im not impressed with the card. I'm thinking of going with 2 GTX 980TI Hybrids since the are on sale right now. My only issue is how/where to mount the radiators. I would also like to add 2 m.2 drives for Maya, 3ds Max, Adobe etc. There is some other customization I would like to still do as well. I'll post updates as well as overclock results along the way.

Hopefully this PC doesn't meet the same fate as Jon Snow.

No worries. Yes it has an AIO Watercooler on it. It's closed loop so the pump and all is contained in the CPU block (picture 9). The radiator is mounted on top (pictures 4 and 5). The water just moves around between the 2 parts.

Thanks for the comment! I've been really torn between the two. I'd love to get the MSI GTX 1080 Sea Hawk X.

Yea it's a pretty awesome looking card. Hope I don't have to wait to long for one.
