CorSire.

The Dream build I had from way back in the day. It all started with the first time I ever laid eyes on the 780T.. From that moment on, I was determined to build a PC deserving of the case.
The computer started it's life as another mans build.. I stumbled upon a freshly built i7 6700K, GTX1070 H270 build from a local ad and scooped it up immediately for wayyy below value. From there, I started adding miscellaneous parts here and there.. slowly upgrading. It wasn't until a year later when a friend and I decided to go to Atlanta for Dreamhack that I decided I'd make a trip to microcenter to see what else I could do to it. After seeing a black 780T in person, it became an impulse buy, although I REALLLLLLLLLLY wanted it in white. Transplant was as easy as ever and I was proud to call it my own build.. Fast forward about another year later, I stumbled upon the Asus Maximus IX Code for only 100$.. an upgrade I deemed necessary if I were to fully unlock the potential of the 6700K.(The old H270 MSI board could not overclock...again, another mans build.) To MY LUCK, he also threw in a case with the mobo as he wouldn't need it anymore.. It was another 780T..in white... the color I've always wanted! Shortly after the upgrade to the Z270 board, I decided to change out the Hyper212 for a Corsair H100i. It wasn't finished.. The RGB bug bit me after helping a friend build his "AURASYNC ONLY RGB UNICORN PUKE Ryzen build". So to button things up, I went ahead and purchased 6 of the Corsair HD120 RGB fans, along with a Lightning Node Pro.. a few days later I find 2 sets of Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB NIB for sale so I snagged those up along with the Samsung 970EVO M.2. The 1080 Ti came at a bargain on facebook during the release of RTX.
What I'm left with today is something I'm proud to call "MY PC".. The only things that hasn't been changed from the original build is the heart of it all, the i7-6700k, and the PSU.
