This crap is what holted my build. I was waiting for EVGA to start selling the Ti after Christmas and they came out costing more. I decided to wait to see what's around the block.

My custom rig is about 5 years old... Still purring like a kitty when i'm working on PS, gaming, and/or simple video editing...

MB: Asrock Fatality Z97 Killer
CPU: Intel i7-4790 @ 4.3Ghz OC (upgraded heatsink, not watercooled)
RAM: Munchkin Enhanced Stealth 32GB DDR3-1600
Video Card: AMD Radeon R9 380 Series (4GB DDR5)
HD 1: 1TB Sandisk III SSD
HD 2: Seagate SATA 4TB 6gb/s 7200rpm
Monitor: LG 29" IPS UWGA Backlit LCD

I'm hoping this will last me another 2-3 years before I upgrade again... Thus far, though, it's been solid (knock on wood) at everything I've thrown at it...

:)

Similar to my 4790k based system, I'm at 4.2Ghz. I don't think the cost of an upgrade is worth the small performance upgrade at this point in time...

=Hannah'sDad;18486914]​Just replaced my stock HP Pavilion 810-330qe with a custom build. I was lucky enough to get one of the first I7-8700K processors. My specs:

Motherboard: ASUS Z370-E
Processor: Intel I7-8700K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LED 32GB 4 x 16GB DDR4-3200 (64GB total)
SSDs: 4 x 1TB Samsung EVO 840 (3.5 of total storage for data) and one-half (500GB) for Operating System
Video: ASUS STRIX GeForce 1070
Optical Drives: HP CH30L and an LG WH16NS40 (BluRay Burner)
Monitors: LG 27UD58-B (x2) on VideoPorts running in 4k with 10 bit color depth
Power Supply: EVGA 750W G2 Gold
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro (64 Bit)
Case: Corsair 230T
Backups: IO Safe G3 8 TB and IO Safe G3 8 TB (USB 3.0)
UserBenchmark: http://www.userbenchma​rk.com/UserRun/5635475 (external link)

It's a screamer, now. I run Photoshop CC, Lightroom Classic and Adobe Premiere Pro. No gaming (no time!)

I just upgraded my laptop (It's an HP 17t-j100 from Costco - I7-4770 w/16GB RAM). I've had it for several years now, but it seems to be running pretty smoothly, so I'm not anxious to replace it any time soon. It came with dual 1 TB HD, which I replaced with dual 1 TB SSDs. Then, those started to fill up and now I have dual 2 TB SSDs in the laptop and I put the other 1 TB SSD in the desktop, so now I have a total of 4 1 TB SSDs in my desktop. I have one portioned at 500GB for my Operating System and the others are portioned for use as data storage.. I use SyncToy to keep the two in sync at all times. It runs at 2:00AM every day, and in addition to keeping my laptop and desktop in perfect sync, it also copies over all of my photos to my two external hard drives. These are IO Safe (fireproof/waterproof)​, but they only came with 3 TB drives in them. I just upgraded the drives in each of them to Seagate 8 TB drives, so now I have all of my important documents and photos in four places. On my desktop, my laptop and mirrored on two external fireproof hard drives. I keep my Acronis backups on the external hard drives, along with all of my photos, videos and documents. SyncToy is an old program, but it works pretty well for what I need it to do each day. Please DO NOT interpret this as bragging; it's not. Just documenting what I have built up and how I store my photos for safe keeping (including my Lightroom catalog).

I built my system a few years ago and am currently running-

• ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO
• 4.00 gigahertz Intel Core i7-4790K
• 32 GB Corsair Dominator 2400 DDR3 memory
• 2 -2 TB 7200 drives
• 480GB CORSAIR Force LE200 solid-state drive
• AMD Radeon R9 200 video card
• DELL U3014 monitor
• WD My Cloud PR2100 8TB
• Win 10 Pro

Case is a Corsair 540 and I am running the Corsair Hydro Series H110i liquid cooler. Power is a Corsair 850 watt Platinum rated PSU. CAN YOU TELL I LIKE CORSAIR?

I had a data loss a few years back and now run the system with the SSD as the boot/application drive, the 1st 2TB drive as the data drive that immediately mirrors to the 2nd 2 TB drive and then all the important data backs up to Carbonite (440GB now). Calibration is with an older Datacolor Spyder.

I am hoping to keep this system running for a while yet but am wondering about upgrading as I also do music production tasks on this computer - mosting adding bass tracks to files from other musicians. For this, Ableton is a great app. I would like to add a Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII DUO with the Thunderbolt interface to replace my current Focusrite interface.

I'm moving from California to Florida this summer and will be building a better desk - the one I have is cramped and not too flexible. I'm using KRK V8 monitor speakers and they take up a lot of room and I have a subwoofer stashed under the back of the desk. The REALLY fun part is that the Boss (Wife) agrees we need a 3-car garage and I will be building a music studio/man cave in the 3rd bay. I'll be able to keep my drum kit, bass rigs and percussion stuff in one air conditioned room - I'll probably build in a home theater at some point.

I currently have MPB mid 2015 with Ati R9 M370X 2Gb. I have it half a year. It a refurbished piece. I gotta say the experience with this device is not what I exptected and I am selling it right now.
The photoshop performance is very poor. So when I sell it, I will have a Win10 based desktop.

Last few builds I've done for me and others, I always use a plethora of Corsair products. Still have a Corsair 750 PSU from 2009 that I moved over to a server unit in 2016 and still no issues at all. No telling how many hours that thing has logged, but all of the rails still tested fine about 6 months ago.

I still stick with Samsung for my hard drives....but everything else I heartily endorse Corsair. Went with a Hydro H75 water cooler for my last build in 2016, and I love it.

I've been using Corsair memory since the time that memory was the only product they made.
I used to build PCs as a side job, used pretty much every make of every part, and the only brands of memory that NEVER had a bad stick was Corsair (and Crucial)

I have a list of motherboard manufacturers I trust, (and ones I don't trust) likewise with pretty much everything else. I'll got from Intel to AMD for CPU, Prefer nVidia but am happy with ATI and intel, and don't have a prefence of brand card.

But for memory, Corsair is the one and only I will put in my own machines.

I second that emotion. Around Christmas time, I put a couple of sticks of memory to expand my aging Macbook Pro. I went through several rounds with two other manufacturers (including Kensington)with both having problems every time. The first would arbitrarily cause the computer to crash every other day or so, and the second manuf (don't remember which) wouldn't even allow the laptop to boot without crashing halfway through. I was about to give up. Enter Corsair. Actually saw them on sale at a local retailer and figured I'd give them one last try. Got a couple of sticks, popped them in, and haven't had a problem since. They'll definitely be first on the list the next time around.
