I had been using my X58 build since 2009, upgrading the graphics card and HDD to a SSD. In 2016, I decided to retire the X58 and build a totally new rig. The Alpha Prime is result of that.

2017 Swapped from an i5 6600k and Maximus VIII Ranger to 8700k and Maximus X Hero I have added a WD Black 6TB, swapped the GTX 1070 to the 1080 Ti, and replaced the Dell U2711 to the Dell U3415W.


I have swapped the U3415W to a Alienware AW3418DW Added the Audio-Gd R2R 1 and NFB1Amp. Swapped my speakers from an AudioEngine A5+ to ADAM Audio A7X Studio Monitors.

Swapped out the Corsair H115i to NZXT X72

8700k Delidded

Final update 2018 Added a 970 EVO 1TB as OS drive 2TB 860 EVO as game storage

All that goodness and no SSD/m2? M2 is so worth it, load times of everything goes down. Nice setup though, I'm jealous.
