Description

This toaster of a computer will be used for video and audio editing. It also needs to livestream 1080p video while also recording full high quality audio straight from my Presonus StudioLive mixer simultaneously. I may do some light gaming on the side but its main purpose is handling multiple high demanding software interfaces at once.

Intel Core i7-6850K: Great CPU, currently overclocked to 4 ghz extremely stable. It allows me to have as many programs open as I need and more.

Corsair H100i v2: Amazing AIO cooler out of the box. It does its job very well and my only complaint about it is how stiff the tubing is because it makes it a challenge to wrestle it into place.

MSI X99a Gaming Pro Carbon: If you're looking for an extreme motherboard for your next lga 2011-3 build than look no further. Not only does this board look beautiful but it also has the brains to back it up. The bios on this board makes everything super easy to set up as well as looking amazing.

Corsair Vengeance LED 32GB (2x16GB): Very nicely lit RAM that runs just like it should. The software to change the LED to always on is very frustrating though...

Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB: Blazing fast SSD that gives me a nice sub 5 second boot time as well as full utilization of my internet speed.

MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X: Beautiful graphics card inside and out. Took 7 concrete mixing trucks exploding in Beam.ng Drive to bring this card to its knees.

NZXT H440: Sleek case with good cable management. Only downside is trying to squeeze the back panel back on once you have installed all of your cables.

EVGA 1000W SuperNova G2: Good power supply with plenty of expandability.

(Note: Case in last picture is a build that will be posted soon!)

That ram looks so lonely all by itself. Couple more sticks would fill it in nicely

Great build!

Very fast but it will be faster once I install the M.2 ssd that is on its way.

Samsung 9XX (950 or 960)? I've read about issues with Asus boards and M.2 drives in terms of booting so the one you've got has actually been the next one I've planned to go with. Just researching on my options :)
