Insides 2019 (I suck at cable management + old corsair h100i has wires everywhere)
Disgusting reminder to clean you AIO radiator and fans once in a while. I figured it wouldn't be that bad since they are exhausts and all my intake air is filtered. I WAS WRONG.
History: 2011 Back in 2011, I purchased a prebuilt HP computer (HPE-501f) to play Skyrim (It ran on Ultra, total happiness).
2013 Then some time in 2013, I bought a GTX 760 and a power supply (Corsair TX 750). In 2014, I decided I was sick of the outdated AMD Phenom II Black Edition and got myself a nice budget setup. - Cheap micro-atx mobo to host my new i5-4690k (gigabyte z97 gaming 5 I think) - Corsair 400r case - Refurbished H100i water cooler
2015 That lasted until 2015 when I ran the Witcher 3 and realized my GTX 760 was very limited. I then bought an MSI GTX 970 (the one noone likes with the red shroud hehe).
2018 In october this year, I got myself a nice MSI GTX 1070 Ti for a price lower than I'd ever seen before. (Lower than it was during its black friday "deal"!) A few weeks later, a friend of mine was departing of his i7-6700k and his motherboard (ASUS Z170-A) which he sold me for only 100$ CAD.
Overclocking: I only managed to overclock the i7 to 4.5GHz. It was the best I could do using reasonable voltage. Bad chip or just old age, I don't know - still quite the deal for me. As for the graphics card, I have a stable +200 MHz Core Clock and +750 MHz Memory Clock which I am happy with, but not as happy as I would be with a 2080 Ti!!!
