Description
Got lucky. Repasted the GTX 1080 with conductonaut, dropped avg temps by 15c. Core I7 de/relidded with a RockIT copper heat spreader and LM thermal paste in and out. Again, dropped avg. temps by around 15c. Running 4.6Ghz @ 1.24 vdc. While crunching for BOINC, I'm more interested in the lowest temps and voltage, than I am the largest overclocks. Waited for a decent sale, grabbed for $1300, + another $100 for the steam drive ssd.

    Picked this up after watching the Dell pricing for a couple of months. Although it did have a 2 TB HDD (which I haven't any use for, and replaced with a 512GB SSD for Steam and games) the price was great. I give $1300 for the I7/1080 and $300 for the 25.5" 240hz monitor. Currently running BOINC for the Overclock.net BOINC team.
