Build Description

As a day trader and market maker, I need to update models for thousands of contracts on a second-by-second basis. My old workstation was not up to the task, so I upgraded to a 5950X for its multicore performance.

Favorite Feature

The 360mm AIO keeps my 5950X under 80 degrees at full load, which is impressive given it pulls nearly 250W with PBO enabled
