Ivy Bridge Relic

Built this system in December of 2012, first time using nearly brand new components instead of 3rd or 4th gen hardware at the time. Its still going strong 6 years later. 3 case changes, I've doubled ram from 8gb to 16gb, replaced HDDs with only SSDs, but the biggest upgrade was getting the GTX1080 in 2017, the most powerful GPU I've had thus far.

Its a great rig, but I've taken it as far as I can go so I won't be upgrading anything. That said its still the best PC I've ever built and owned.
