Well this is my second build and I really didn't capture what I wanted to in my first build. So my themes for this build were military, ruggedness, stealth, and sff. When this system is done I hope for it to be a dual boot windows/ Linux system. So I can practice IT stuff and game as well. I test for my network plus exam in a few weeks so hopefully if I pass I'll finish this build as a gift to myself. I named this build redemption because it is a powerful word, and something we could all use.
So the center piece of this build was the case = caselabs bh7 in gunmetal. This case supports supports full sized mother boards and power supplies while keeping a small foot print..Legit
My next decision was very easy x99 sabertooth...I personally tend to favor reliablilty over flash..also aesthetically it fit perfectly
so then I snagged a darkrock TF because no matter how good Noctua is it just looks like dookie. also the height of the cpu coolers were extremely limited so I had like two possible choices I took the be quiet route.
power supply is a seasonic prime 850-titanium rated so I get almost all of the rated power..this might be over kill but I wanted to give amd gpus a chance since I never owned one. I heard they like alot of power. Also they seem to age like wine so it seemed like a better long term out look. hopefully vega comes through strong and it fits fingers crossed.if not blower style nvidia 1080 or 1080 ti
I havent bought the cpu yet because money #1 and im trying to decide is 16x/16x vs 16x/8x is worth the money between the 6800k or the 6850k..maybe you guys could link me to some good articles or share your insight into the matter.
Also m.2 ssd worth it for boot drive or no? tell me about this too
anyways I hope to keep you updated and learn and look at all of your cool builds
so it has been a long while my buddies I passed my network test..working on S+ test now
heres whats a changed since we last spoke
m.2 ssd check with passive aquacomputer heat sink
still waiting on ******* amd vega 1080ti is tempting me but iM HOLDING STRONG I havent even got to mess around with this system yet
