The 1 Rig

This is my first gaming PC build. It was completed in January of 2018 and at the time it was pretty much creme of the crop. Unfortunately one week after I purchased my 7700k intel announced 8th generation chips and I have yet to upgrade. I will say however I won the silicone lottery with my 7700K as I easily hit 5.0ghz on all cores with only 1.32v vcore. Not too shabby. Without delidding it averages a nice cool 60-65c in AIDA64, leaving me plenty of power and thermal headroom to take the OC further if I ever so choose, but as it is it still chews up everything I throw at it. Eventually I would like to upgrade to a 9th gen CPU, I will likely run the 1080ti until the next generation of Nvidia GPU's hit the market. At that time I plan to delve into custom open loop water cooling.
