THIS IS NOT A MSI DREAM BUILD PC GUIDE PROJECT GUIDE OR ENTRY
It may, however, be a satirical commentary on a different build that I presented for the competition. And, it is, however a smoking-awesome MSI MONSTER build. Some people might even say is dream!
When GOLDILOCK'S big sister found out that she was all dressed up for the ball she knew the game was on! That's right, she headed right out the door swiping daddy's credit card and headed down to Beverly Hills to pull an all day Julia Roberts shopping spree. [If you haven't seen Pretty Woman yet, stop reading this--go watch it, then come back and continue].
DOWN TO BUSINESS
I did a separate build for a killer under $2k build that actually qualifies for the MSI project. This build is just for EXTRA-FUN. So, go check out that build. It will also explain where some of this GOLDILOCKS attitude is coming from. Since I've explained the GOLDILOCKS background in that build, I'm just going to his some high points in this build.
Same as GOLDILOCKS. If it ain't broken...
Why the NZXT Kraken X61 over the Corsair H110i. Simple--variable speed. BIG SIS likes to get her groove on. Sometimes it's a thumpity-thump, sometimes she turns down the lights and moves real slow. So, no matter her mood, the X61 can match her speed.
MO-BO: Because anything MSI Z170A is awesome. And because TITANIUM looks good on a girl!
+Three words. Corsair. Dominator. Platinum.
+Three numbers. 64(gb). 4(ddr). 3000(MHz)
+1.3 second boot time.
Okay, it might actually be 2.3 seconds. Seriously though, there was no way BIG SIS was gonna let GOLDI be faster than her. Can you slap your OS onto 480gb M.2 SSD's? Yes, "'s". I'm talking RIDICULOUS RAID ARRAY. ridiculous raid array. ridiculous raid array. Sorry, I got carried away there. I just wanted to see if i could say it fast three times.
And for all the nay-sayers that might whine about GOLDILOCKS wearing nothing in the storage department, BIG SIS here is flamboyant as always. 8TB SSD, 850 PRO style. "Why not 10TB you ask?" Simple, "Silly you, when the girls go out, they are always in pairs." No third wheels here. Just some high heels.
+I think I heard BIG SIS mumble under her breath, "NAS is for sissies".
That's right, GOLDILOCKS was built around the GTX 980 Ti LIGHTNING. The same way that BIG SIS is built around a pair of them. BIG SIS spends a lot of time in Vegas. She actually has a TATTOO across her chest that say's DOUBLE DOWN
BIG SIS likes to think she's more classy than GOLDI. She might be wearing yellow beneath, but she's rocking her shiny black dress to this ball.
Just because 1600W might be overkill. Just because Titanium is better than gold. Just because EVGA has a cool logo and makes hot stuff.
What you've never heard of them? You don't have one? That's right. And that's how BIG SIS likes it. She's all about IMAGE and she wants to be the only one.
Believe me. when you look at this, you won't take your eyes off it !!!
TO MSI: Thanks for all the fun you have sparked !!!
