Build Description

Gaming rig I've upgraded over the years. I've swiss cheesed the antec 900 case to better work with the spaghetti from the powersupply so that most wires won't get in the way of airflow. Most cable management is from the perspective of what you can see through the case-window. I've also "modified" the hard drive cages to accomodate the ssds/hds. I no longer even bother to look down at the case and have disabled all fan led lights. Case has been through 2 major upgrades (from q6600+5850 to e3770k+1060) and it's about time for another. ;) I got the 3770k overlocked to 4.3ghz and it's still decent in overwatch / most games with the 1060. If able to purchase upgrades, I would probably have to go with new a new intel processor/motherboard, ram + psu combo.. then would probably have to upgrade my graphics card after all that as well.. which is basically why I haven't upgraded in awhile.

Favorite Feature

The vacuum cleaner noise it makes when running under the desk providing me with the ability to interact with the net while simultaneously collecting all the dust and cat hair out of the air.
