The latest incarnation of my beloved pixel pusher and bit slayer, Peregrine! Peregrine is designed to be quiet, subtle and classy with lots of performance under the hood. She's an ongoing project which is the best part!
The Intel i7-8700k is a beast. While Peregrine is primarily a gaming rig I'm a programmer by trade and use Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines when I work at home. The 8700k handles both games and Hyper-V with aplomb. My first homebuilt was an 80486-DX2 and Intel has never let me down.
I've had good experience with ASRock motherboards and the Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming K6 motherboard has been no exception. Oddly enough the K6 was my first experience with RGB lighting. :p The board has dual Intel NICs which I want to team.
Let's hear it for AIO GPUs! The EVGA GeForce 2080 TI FTW3 Hybrid handles the newest titles at 4k @ 60fps. Older titles it laughs at and takes a nap. :p
The Fractal Design Meshify C case is quiet to begin with and I've replaced the stock fans on the EVGA CLC240 (both intake) and 2080 Ti Hybrid (intake) with Fractal Design Venturi HP-12 fans. She's whisper quiet under load; without load you wouldn't even think the fans were turning.
All drives are solid state Samsung SSDs. The system drive is an nVME 960 EVO 250 GB. The other drives are SATA3 860 (2 1TB 2.5) EVOs. I'm using a 3tb platter drive with a sata3 caddy for system backups.
The beyerdynamic DT770 PRO headphones and FiiO E10K DAC were recommended by the folk on /r/headphones and have been fantastic! When I'm not using the headphones the Mackie CR3 monitors have plenty of range and volume.
I went for the SeaSonic SS-1050XM2 psu so I'd be assured of clean, safe power; when I purchased it I was running 980 Ti SLI and an overclocked i7-4790k. The psu is warrantied for seven years. SeaSonic means never having to say you're sorry. :p
The monitors are an ongoing project which began with a single XB280HK and a GTX 980 ti. The center is an Acer XB281HK (28" 4k 60hz G-Sync), the left and right wings are Acer XB280HKs (28" 4k 60hz G-Sync) and the top is an Asus VP28UQG (28" 4k 60hz). All but one of the monitors I purchased re-certified; the other was a lucky eBay find (it didn't have at a base). G-Sync is enabled which helps a lot with the higher resolutions. The top monitor is used for EVGA Flow Control, EVGA Precision X, Spotify, etc when PC gaming. I also have a PS3 and Xbox One X connected to the top monitor for when the console itch hits me; I replaced the previous Acer CB281HK because it wouldn't handle 4k via HDMI from the Xbox One X. I use a Datacolor Spyder5 colorimeter to ensure the monitors display in spec (a fringe benefit of being married to a BFA in graphics design).
