Description

My PC really doesn't have a complete date, as it's been receiving upgrades for 3 years.

As for early 2016, the specs are pretty average. My trusty i7 4790K that gets the job done, overclocked to 4.9 GHz @ 1.375V. (load temp, 80 degrees Celsius) 18GB of 2133 MHz DDR3 RAM The 250GB 840 EVO SSD that I've been using for a year or so might receive an upgrade soon x4 1TB WD Blue drives might also be replaced with x2 4TB ones Case is an H440, which I might also upgrade due to the terrible airflow A GTX 970 that I'm pretty much happy with for now.

That's about it honestly, not much to say.

EDIT: Necessary edits, the parts were bought pretty much as soon as they came out. So they were kinda pricey. This includes the SSD, RAM, mobo, headphones. I was an early adopter back then.

Nice pics. Why a $250 Z97?

Also, why a random 2GB stick

Prob had the 2GB from previous system. Overpaid for the Kingston RAM, MoBo, and PSU.

Keep in mind the parts weren't bought recently.

The RAM was bought 3 years ago, 2133 MHz 16GB RAM was a luxury. Z97-PRO was also a luxury when it first came out.

I was pretty much the early adopter of many parts.

Check the other comment I made, the parts were bought as soon as they were released.

Was not expecting DDR4 RAM to become mainstream in just 3 years, so was the SSD.

Extra story: I was using a Z87-PRO before that, but for some reason my system kept bluescreening on me, so I sold it and got a Z97-PRO. Again, only months within its release date, hence the price.

I upgraded to the Z97 pretty early on. So it was rather expensive then.

Also, yes, I dug that RAM out from an old system.

It's fantastic. I can push my system all the way to 4.9 GHz with no issue. Temperature stayed pretty nicely. Although you'd want to make sure not to make the same mistake as I did with the case.

Or the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M. Great starter case if you are planning to change the case fans regardless. The Acrylic Edition is a nice show case as well.

I'm more interested in a more premium case. Something like a 750D but with more features. I won't mind spending 150~200 dollars on a case.
