2014 - 4790K Build

Built back in 2014, with some upgrades done on the road to 2019. My first completely self-built PC, and it was absolutely amazing at the time! Upgraded with a H100i v2 back in 2016, but that died sometime in 2018 and was replaced with the Intel Stock CPU cooler. The original Antec PSU also died sometime in 2018, and was replaced with a much better Seasonic unit. The original build featured an AMD R9 290X, replaced with a RMA R9 390 sometime in 2017. Luckily, I was able to sell it off during the mining craze for a hefty sum and get a cheap GTX 1080 for not much more. Whole system has run like a dream since, aside from the CPU occasionally overheating during Overwatch Comp games.
