Description

I started this build in December 2018, and just finished it this week (, February 2019). It got its name from an inside joke where I work. I recently had to check over dozens of VCRs and there was only one tape available to see if they were working. This tape was completely on the Ski-Doo snowmobiles.

It had to be a black and white build to fit a snowy, cold sort of feel. The main purpose of this though was to have a solid first build that would last me a decent amount of time, for a decent price. I'm currently majoring in network security at a local college, so this machine would have to be able to support my school work. On the other side though, I am a gamer, but luckily I don't have too intensive games. I also tend to mess around with virtualization quite a bit. I put a copy of Windows 10 Education Edition as my host OS, as it has practically all the same features as enterprise. I then set up Windows Server 2019 on a VM, and connected a Linux Mint VM to the Server 2019 as a way of providing security to the Linux distro. I personally prefer Linux Mint, but because of games, I am using Windows. My major has made me slightly paranoid which is why there's that sort of layer of security. I have set up the VM for a remote connection from my laptop. I also sometimes program in my free time, so having VM's are great for testing.

Anyway, this build was super fun! The case was bigger than I expected. I'm still trying to figure out how to control the RGB on the CPU fan, but other than that I haven't had any issues with my build so far. I'm thinking of getting some more fans to try to keep the heat down a bit, even though there hasn't been too much. One of my friends at my college has called the Silverstone Remote I got the "Princess Switch". I love it because I don't even have to get out of my seat to press power. There's plenty of USB connection on this thing, mostly 3.0.

I would take a pic of the whole thing, but the glass side is now very much corroded by some friends attempt to fix minor scratches. It went from tolerable to, Oh **** that's not aesthetically pleasing at all...

4 can be fit. I just decided to fit 2 for now, because I now want to throw some money at student loans...

Very nice build. Is your ram running at 3000mhz? Can it be overclocked? I have the motherboard but it's hard to find compatible ram..
