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.
