This is my second build for myself and 3rd build total; my first was 6 years back with a first gen i7-930 and 5770...I know, but I was younger and much less wiser. I'd like to think I did better this time.
This build is going to be used for gaming, general work, and a good amount of 3-D simulation data crunching (related to fluid dynamics research). With that in mind, I went with the i7 rather than the i5. I'm currently overclocked to 4.7ghz at 1.296v, and with the Noctua fans on the H115i, everything is nice and quiet at all times. I wanted to step up to 1440p, and so far, the 1070 is doing a stunning job. I never knew Rocket League could look so good!! Also, seeing clock speeds over 2ghz on a freaking graphics card is just...crazy. I know there are more cost-efficient ways of doing this same build, but I really wanted the aesthetic of the Evolv ATX, so. Yeah. I'm quite happy with how this turned out.
