Description

Been using this machine for 3 years or so for 3D rendering, vfx compositing, and casual gaming. It's been a champ and hasn't had any issues. It's been awesome. However, as new 3D projects are approaching, I'm starting to build a 2nd workstation for bigger and better stuff.

One thing I do regret is not buying an aftermarket cooler, it still has the stock intel cooler on it. I'll make sure I don't make that mistake on the next one. Another change I want to make for my next workstation, is to try and use only SSD drives, no mechanical ones. With the new 1TB EVO drives, I think it's entirely possible and very worth it.

You do notice, that is a living room entertainment center for tv, not a desk, right? That is why there is no leg room

Right, but I would take out those middle shelves for some leg stretching mid game session :)

Yeah, it was annoying, but I only had to use it during summer breaks from college, so it wasn't as bad as it could be.

I have since then, that picture is kind of old now. It has needed many cleanings over the years.

It's funny how the r3 looks the same as the r4, but they felt they needed to change the name. Nice build.
