Been a couple of weeks, figured I'd create one of these

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there!

So I've been delinquent on creating a howdy thread and figured now would be an opportune time so here we are.

A few details about me: I'm 36, electrical and systems (not IT systems, "systems of systems") engineering by education, into autos, motos and computers pretty much my whole life. Built my first rig in college, had a succession for a few years then grabbed a refurb Alienware and pretty much upgraded that for a number of years.

Now though I just built my first rig in probably 10 years with an i7-6700K and a GTX1080 (details in Rigbuilder) and am enjoying G-Sync and 2560x1440 gaming for the first time. I'd say this is my first truly high end build though I started with computers before there were 8 colors on the screen so...

Anyway, this new rig is a beast and I'm happy to have the forum here and other places on the web to refer to to help me tweak and test it. I'm pretty satisfied to say it runs any typical benchmark I throw at it with the CPU sitting at 4.8GHz on stock voltage as of last night; I haven't gone too crazy with Prime95 for days yet but expect I'll do that over the coming days to prove out stability. It hasn't had any issue with games or the gaming benches I've thrown at it in the meantime however.

Anyway, that's me and my gear, happy to be here. I'll post some more up to date pics of my space and my rig once it's finished over the next few days.
