I've been putting this off for so long this was my main system for a while but now is disassembled. Here is the story if you would like to read. My main system originally started with a fx 6300 upgraded to 8350. When I got my gtx 980 my first enthusiast card. I noticed how even one of the best amd cpu's was holding back my 980. So a month later I decided to go to Intel and skylake was pretty new I decided on that over haswell which was still being sold new at the time as well. So $500 later i decided to go itx as well just to give it a try I found mini gaming computers so cool since they can be just as good as a tower system. So in the end all that is left is the i5 and board all the rest of the parts I sold or were put in my latest system/project atm which I will post in the future.

So starting with the system I bet the first question people might ask is how i got one of the biggest 980's in my case it was a miracle I had to order custom cables so the case can even stretch ten the case could shut and I'm not the only person who has done this there's actually a vid on youtube how to do so. But yeah besides that this rig was a beast and gave little issues besides putting in the 980, temps were just fine.

In the end this was my little beast pc and served me well a decent peroid of time. The name rave box comes from the fact I love edm and the rgb of the hue.
