This build is nothing new to neither me nor pcpartpicker. I had a post with this build up before but decided to delete it since i made a lot of little changes in the time when uploading. So here we go again with another post of my still super smooth running Devil's Canyon build.
Originally i build this rig with a few other options but what stayed is the motherboard and one 16GB Corsair RAM kit. Bought in early 2014 i build up this rig with a fresh 4770k, 580W PSU, only one 16GB Corsair RAM kit, another mATX case, a Samsung 840 Evo and most importantly my old Gainward GTX 770 Phantom. Since then lot of things and changes happend, i upgraded to a MSI GTX 980ti Gaming 6G, swapped the 4770k with a relative to a 4790k for free, changed cases a few times and even changed the operating system SSD. The last one was a minor upgrade, but therefore another build profited. A major upgrade was going from an HDD to a SSD when it somes to storage for games and other stuff, so i became an all SSD user with super fast loading and incredible access times. The latest upgrade is my MSI GTX 1080ti Gaming X that i got quite cheap in used but mint conditions, which just doubles the graphical performance coming from a 980ti. Sure, why not upgrading the whole platform? Well, it's still too expensive for me and my 4790k with 32GB RAM still do the job and dont bottleneck my 1080ti, since i just play at 1440p 60Hz.
THE END OF AN ERA
I should just upgrade, i should say. Yeeeaaah, but later. I know Haswell is still a good platform, Tntel really didn't do mayor steps yet. But with Ryzen 3000 and also TR in mind, i can see some wrinkles on my board. It's still running like on day one, knock on wood and praise MSI. My next gaming rig should be something new tho. And it might be a brand, i never had contact with. But even that might change with the time i keep on waiting, so let's see what the future brings.
Thanks for reading.
