Purple Pixel Pusher

Build Description

Built with a primary purpose of gaming, but ended up as a remote work from home station as well. I've played a lot of Satisfactory over the almost 4 years this build has been up, along with games like: Control, Half Life Alyx, Mass Effect LE, Star Wars Fallen Order, ect. This was also my first forray into liquid cooling in the 16 years I've been building PC's.

I'm in the process of a multistage overhaul, coded "Red Pheonix." I just swapped out the previous 8700k for a 12700k, swapping the front fans for Noctua Chromax for increased airflow. Once the 4000 series drops, I'm swapping the 2080ti for a 4080.

Favorite Feature

I love the 34" ultrawide, I don't think I could ever go back to a regular 16:9.
