Every few years I build myself a desktop PC. These are the components I’ve chosen for this year’s custom PC build based on Intel’s Skylake architecture and Z170 chipset. The System is completely free of legacy I/O ports such as PS/2 and VGA and its standout features are the slick full body tempered glass window on the case, the RAID 0 array of SanDisk Extreme Pro SSDs and the 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 connectivity including a reversible Type C port on the back. Also obvious is the white color scheme built around the uniquely beautiful Asus Sabertooth S170 S motherboard that sports an arctic camouflage design, packed with matching Crucial Ballistix Sport LT memory.
