This rig is mostly used for music production and media consumption but, I also like to game as much as I can. I wanted a clean minimal look so purchased parts that balanced sleek aesthetics with adequate performance, although I made a few subtle modifications to get the look I was after, which is summed up by the following words. Server | Modern | Minimal | Industrial
Whether or not I was able to achieve any hints of this, I'm happy with the end result.
Upgraded from the 2500k. Highly recommended to me so hey, if your going to upgrade then upgrade, It was not that much of a huge difference in price from the 6600k IMO. So far so good, not yet overclocked.
Wanted a change from AIO. The best looking air cooler IMO and performs just as well as an AIO for less. I didn't really like the logo popping so much so, decided to mute it a bit to add to its industrial look. Super quiet too.
EDIT: I decided I don't not really like the look of the brushed metal so I sprayed it Matt Metallic to match the rest of the build. I also decided to make the logo look like it was stamped into the plate, than just a badge.
Does what it says on the tin.
Got a great deal on this. So far so good. Had a few problems installing windows though.
Got these purely for aesthetic purposes. Does the job.
OS install for now. Will upgrade to M.2
Game installs. Does what it says on the tin.
At the time I got tired of waiting for the 1080 to be available so went with the 1070 FTW. Happy with it but will be upgrading to the 1080 as I'm going to get a 4K monitor in preparation for Mass Effect: Andromeda and Tekken 7. I'm a graphics junky sue me.
What can I say this is beautiful. Was 100% going to get the Enthoo Evolv until I found out about the Elite S340. It looks so clean, it reminds me of a server room while the matt black reminds me of a matt black Aventador.
Brought over from my previous build. Does the job.
So far so good. Only upgraded for DX12. Also thought it was about time, and why not if you can buy a legitimate key for less than £10 A bit intrusive though but I sorted that out.
Wireless Network Adapter
No problems here.
Supa dupa quiet and at a supa dupa price.
Was working as a graphic designer and doing game textures for fun so purchased this monitor a while ago. Will be upgrading to a 4k monitor for gaming and media purposes. Only thing I don't like is its not wall mountable.
Does what it says on the tin and looks good doing it.
Absolutely great sounding cans.
