Description

This was a experimental pc. The idea spawned from Bryan @tech city. And sadly this PC is no more due to motherboard failure. While this pc was in working order it did gaming well and crushed a lot of productivity benchmarks even though i'm mainly a gamer/PC enthusiast. This was my most powerful pc to date it just sucks nothing uses 2 gpus or even more than 4 cores so technically only 4 cores and one card was used. And I know this cpu is no way logical for gaming its 2ghz clock does let it fall on its face in CPU intensive titles like gta v. But this cpu is vr ready even though this cpu was designed for a server rack. Still a fun experiment kinda miss it. If anyone has any questions let me know. One last note this build is in no way logical.

Cool. Hope you can find a new motherboard, and maybe move the cooler to the front? Those twisted cables are messing with my ocd.
