This is an update from an earlier build (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/6vsZxr)
Like many of you reading this, you build a PC, you try to leave it alone, and eventually you end up with something that's beyond purpose and/or function (?). The intent of the build was to have an all around powerful, but most importantly PORTABLE productivity PC capable of gaming on the weekend. Theoretically it's still very portable but I don't think it's very practical anymore.
I have no desire to purchase a 20xx GPU, so the 1080Ti isn't going anywhere. A 8700k will meet all of my needs for many years to come. In addition to those reason, putting them under hard tubing is a personal deterrent to make any changes. The tubes were a royal PITA to measure and get together.
Case mods include cutting a 120mm opening in the bottom of the case for an additional fan, cutting the 5.25" drive bay flush with the reservoir and popping a hole for the fill tube opening.
Not my craziest build but easily my favorite.
