The RGBeast

So a while back, I upgraded my main rig to a Xeon E5-1650v2 Ivy Bridge 6-core (running at 4.5ghz) and set aside my delidded i7-3770k (which runs at 4.6ghz). When the opportunity came, it was time to build with it again so gathered parts, including a $160 GTX 1060 6gb from ebay (which was a good price at the time). But instead of the muted dark red/black theme of my main build, I wanted to add a little color back into my life. So the RGBeast came together. It also worked out that I won an EVGA CLC 280 on the EVGA weekly stream, so i used that in this build.


Build video:


**The vertical bracket used was the "Kaislin Vertical Graphics Card Holder Bracket,GPU Mount ,Video Card Support Kit with Riser Cable" from Amazon. It wasn't available on the hardware selection here, but its very similar to the Cablemod one so I just marked down the Cablemod version here. Also, the RGB heatspreaders are from brand UpHere.
