Main PC #Bitwit

Build Description

I built this to replace an 11 year old PC I was still actively gaming on. I have 1200+ hours in the Borderlands series, and I figured I would need a new PC for BL3. I also wanted to play The Master Chief Collection, Star Wars Squadrons, and a few others. I'm also a software engineer and needed an absolutely overkill system for that, obviously.

It was a pre-built from iBuyPower, and unfortunately, the stock case just doesn't do it for me. If I win, I would absolutely use it to get a better case. As far as I'm aware, the place where I have my AIO rad mounted is the only place it fits. Fortunately, the pump is in the rad, not the block, so it is at a low point.

Favorite Feature

The Corsair QL120 fans. They were stupidly expensive for fans, but they're beautiful.
