Overclocked the CPU to 4.5GHz and swapped out the 1070 for an MSI Gaming X GTX 1080! UserBenchmark:
Over the past couple of months I have upgraded this PC, adding an additional monitor and swapping my GTX 970 for a new Gigabyte G1 GTX 1070.
It was finally time to build another PC. And this time around I focused on productivity. I wanted a monster of a PC that could do all my video production needs with ease. And boy does this one deliver.
The only thing that could make this PC better is a GTX 1070 and thats coming! I promise.
This build turned out fantastic! I've since switched out the 212 EVO for a Cryorig H7 and couldn't be happier.

This cooler is fantastic! Like many are saying, it is the Hyper 212 Evo killer. I did an in depth review of its performance VS the Hyper 212 Evo here: https://youtu.be/gLvJ4XUgInQ
I absolutely love this case. Its my default case for every project and the one I always recommend to friends. Its clean and simple design is very attractive and the interior is very well planned to make building enjoyable and easy. Cable management is a breeze and there is plenty of room for most projects.
I had purchased a mechanical keyboard a while back and returned it because I didn't feel it was worth the money. The difference between it and a membrane keyboard just wasn't great enough. The STRAFE, however, was a completely different story. It looks great, feels great, and is very satisfying to type on. The red LEDs are bright and crisp as well, which I had never appreciated until I went back and compared this to my old membrane keyboard after using the new one for a few months.
