Not all that long ago I upgraded from an i5-2500k to an i5-6600k and snagged a 1080. I told myself I was satisfied with that and wouldn't have to upgrade again for another few years..
Flash forward less than a year later and I wasn't satisfied with i5s anymore, the tempered glass and RGB fad got me excited, and I got a raise at my job. Now here I am.
I mainly use my PC for gaming, CEMU, and watching movies and TV from my Plex server. I used to work from home more often which was partly the reason I justified my ultrawide purchase, other than it being totally badass (being on sale for $650 was nice too).
strikethroughIf there was one more thing I would still upgrade, it would be my RAM, but prices are crazy right now. strikethrough UPGRADED to Trident Z!
I completely forgot about the high temp issue on the 7700k before I ran out and bought it.
strikethroughI think that has been my biggest hassle with this build is getting a nice overclock and managing to keep temps in a range I like without blasting my fans too high. strikethrough I ended up delidding and buying some MX4 thermal paste and my temps are wonderful now!
