Description
This originally started as a Mid Range build with an i5-4690K and a R9 380 but quickly took a turn for the better. For one the i5 overclocked like balls if you can believe it it maxed out at about 4.2GHz with 1.3v and saw a deal on a used R9 290X that I couldn't pass on. Killed the top PCI-E slot on my MSI Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard, Corsair H60 couldn't keep up with the i5 or the i7 so upgraded to a H100i and delidded the Broadwell i7. Couple that with a Hybrid modification to the 290X allowing for maxing out the voltage to what MSI afterburner allowed with a AIO on it, and you end up with this. Pretty much plays any game out there that I throw at it (1080p) on High or Ultra settings, except for the few Nvidia optimized titles that I have to crank shadows down to medium for.

- Retired the 290X in favor for a GTX 1080 SC.
