Current build:

  • Haswell processor (i7 4790)
  • Stock Cooler
  • Z87 uATX mobo
  • GTX980
  • 2x8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance
  • Black Enthoo Evolv Tempered Glass Edition
  • 500GB SSD
  • 2TB HDD

Current considerations: I have an ATX case now (recently upgraded case) but my mobo is still uATX and it’s not the best because I bought it on a huge sale through HP. The processor is great but I’m not sure I should waste money on another Z87 mobo at this point.

I’ll probably upgrade the CPU cooler and ride this build out for another year or two, then upgrade graphics / cpu / mobo all at once to Z170 chipset or higher. For some reason the stock cooler is still letting my internal temp hit close to 70c :(
