Build Description

Nine years have passed since my last PC build, and I was looking to build a new one, which led to me building this PC. I primarily use it for engineering workloads and gaming, which is why there is quite a bit more RAM than most people would think necessary. The cooling is also pretty overkill because Texas can get hot, and keeping temps down is important.

Favorite Feature

The video card, definitely. I'm happy I paid the premium for the hybrid model, it performs great and stays at cool temps even when the room is warm.
