Color Splash

I build Color Splash mainly for Video Editing and Gaming. It is a Dual-Boot Machine with Windows 10 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra installed on it.

If you ask about the Apple Magic Trackpad, that was only added for completeness sake. I only use it in macOS and while browsing on Windows.

Update (2019-10-27):
I recently decided that the 24" Dell Monitor I had for gaming wasn't big enough and so I decided to replace it with an Ultra-Wide. Ultimately I decided on the LG 34GK950G, as it had a nice not very "gamery" look to it, but still featured for me necessary features like G-Sync and 1440 Pixel in height resolution.
Since I've posted my build here, I also had replaced my G403 with the G703 Lightspeed, because the mouse-wheel on the G403 died :(

Update (2020-02-15):
Removed any mentioning of the Samsung 860 Evo, as it moved semi-permanently into my old Rig as a Server Driver

Update (2020-08-20):
I swapped out the case, PSU and AIO to improve thermals

Update (2020-11-04):
I upgraded from my 1080Ti to an RTX 3090 FE

Update (2021-04-17):
I swapped out the CPU for a Ryzen 9 5900X and changed the motherboard to support the CPU. I also added some additional fans to create a positive Air pressure in the system.
