This was not bought recently or all at once. This is the current state of my ever evolving build.
I previously had a 3570k in this PC but the option to buy this motherboard and CPU came up for very cheap and I could not pass it up. I paid $100 for the CPU and motherboard.
At 4.3ghz (1.35v) this CPU scores about the same as my 3570k did at 4.2ghz. Seeing as how I enjoy pushing older hardware to its limits, I am always down for a side-grade to older/more interesting components. I also love overclocking.
The motherboard is astonishing. Yes it was a $500 board when it was released, but the level of control you have through the (legacy style) BIOS is amazing. Control I haven't even seen on modern high end boards. Very impressive. Its no wonder this board was the one used for all the x58 world records. It even has settings in the BIOS for if you are doing sub-zero cooling. I removed the VRM heatsink and the chipset heatsink and reapplied thermal paste when I got this board a couple days ago.
The RAM I have had for years.
The CPU cooler is actually a CoolIT-ECOII R120 but its the same thing as a first gen H60. Works well and I paid $17 for it refurb in 2012.
I have had the SSD and 1tb WD HDD for 3 years but I recently added the 500gb drive (laptop take out) and moved all my user folders to it.
I bought the 1060 for $175 open box at microcenter like 8 months ago.
The case I have had for 4 years. Fine case and I added rubber grommets for a more polished look.
PSU I bought as a refurb some years ago for $50.
Windows 10 pro was $10 back when I was in college and bought 5 8.1 keys back before colleges changed over to dreamspark and actually sold real keys.
Keyboard is just a basic MX brown board and I love it. Browns are my favorite switch. Added o-rings.
Mouse I have had for at least 5 years. Holding up well.
