Aluminati

CPU: Xeon E-2176G; Had to use (i7 8700) in the hardware selection as this cpu is similar in performance.
GPU: MSI GTX 1080
Motherboard: Biostar B150 ET3 with modded bios
RAM: DDR4 2 x 8gb @ 2666mhz
PSU: 650w EVGA semi modular 80+ bronze
Hard Drive: 2TB Toshiba 7200 rpm, 4TB Seagate 5400 rpm
Case: modified Powermac G5 from apple.
SSD: 256gb samsung nvme, 120gb Patriot spark
Peripherals: Blue Ray Drive, Black Widow Razor Keyboard, thermaltake level10 mouse, Lepy digital amplifier and technics speakers.
Air Cooler: Noctua NH-D15

Took months to get the parts and to modify the case to fit a matx board. The name "Aluminati" is just a play on words "aluminum" and "illuminati". I'm not suggesting there is a conspiracy that Intel is keeping secrets from us but you can run coffeelake cpus without issues on older gen motherboards ;). Anyway, the PC currently run 3 OS': Ubuntu, windows 10, and Macosx High Sierra.
