After years of using an Apple Macbook Pro, it was time for something new. As Apple did not offer a computer to my needs, I decided to build one myself again in 2016.
|CPU||Intel i7 5960X @ 4.5GHz all core|
|Motherboard||Asus X99 Deluxe-II|
|Graphics card||EVGA GTX1080 Founders Edition|
|Memory||64GB Corsair Dominator DDR4 2400MHz|
|Internal Storage||Samsung 950Pro 512GB M.2 nvme SSD|
Crucial M4 1TB SATA SSD
|Cooling||Full Custom loop watercooling by EK|
|Operating System||Microsoft Windows 11 Pro (Insider Beta)|
ZorinOS 16 Pro (Linux, Ubuntu based)
|Case||Phanteks Evolv ATX|
For backups and data storage, a Synology DS1815+ with 8x 4TB Seagate hard drives and 25TB usable storage is setup in the network as well.
Now, in 2021 this machine is still more than capable for anything thrown at it.
