It's been around 4 years since my previous completed build (see https://pcpartpicker.com/b/bCCJ7P), and now it's time to retire the storm stryker build. It was a great build that ran smooth from boot, but the Gtx670 and the i5 was starting to show its limitations when trying to stream certain game i enjoy. It will now serve as spare computer for friends and family to play on when visiting.
On to the CUBE.
I went with the Corsair Air 740 because it had an oddly charming and unconventional look to it, like a deadly Borg Cube or something. The power supply and the drive bays all reside on the right partition of the cube. Makes for a really clean looking set up.
i7 -6700k for streaming and gaming at the same time.
Ram - is Corsair LED. I don't need 32gb, but figured hey why not.
Corsair h115i to keep the cpu frosty.
1080 Strix to match the Aura Mobo
Actual price closer to $1600 after rebates
Will update with more pictures soon.
Things on the way:
Corsair sp120 rgb Led Fans
Corsair Commander Mini
